Drake Birthday Party Gets “Narcos” Theme

Drake

On Saturday Drake celebrated his 35th birthday in Los Angles with style. His birthday party had a Narcos theme and was attended by his A-list friends. Sporting custom cowboy boots, white cowboy hat, tan fringed jacket, bolo tie, and denim shirt, once again Drake celebrated in style for yet another one of his legendary birthday events.

According to E! News, the “Six God,” whose actual birthday was on Sunday, October 24th came together with his A-list friends on a sound stage at Goya Studios with a crew that included Offset, 24Goldn, Jack Harlow, Kawhi Leonard, Future, French Montana, Larsa Pippen, Draya Michele, Drake’s Father Dennis Graham and more.

Instagram stories posted by the Canadian rapper on that night show French Montana and other guests singing “Happy Birthday” as Drake smiled, E! News reported. Other special birthday wishes from Drake’s friends can also be viewed on Instagram stories, including a photo posted by Nicki Minaj of the pair with the message, “Happy birthday to the GOAT.”

“Chico Amante,” which translates to “lover boy,” a tribute to Drake’s most recent album, Certified Lover Boy was the theme of the party according to People. Keeping things authentic to the trendy Netflix drug-dealing drama, there was reportedly a big box full of cocaine-looking bricks printed with the name of the party on them.

Earlier this month Drake celebrated his son Adonis’s 4th birthday with a race car-themed party. “Adonis races into 4,” a sign read at the kid’s party, which was attended by Bugs Bunny from Space Jam.

OVO’s Baka Not Nice Calls ‘DONDA’ a “Dud”

Kanye West Reportedly Grossed $12M From 'DONDA' Events And The Album Isn't Even Out Yet

Baka Not Nice gives his biased opinion on DONDA. Over the past week, the world has received new albums from two of music’s biggest superstars, Drake and Kanye West. In anticipation for their album rollouts, the two have continued to take shots at each other.

Before DONDA and CLB saw the light of day, Yeezy’s close friend collaborator Consequence, said they were looking for Drake’s release date. Apparently, the intention was to drop DONDA on the same day. Of course that didn’t occur.

It then led Drake dissing Ye on Trippie Redd’s track, “Betrayed,” calling him “burnt out.”

It did not take long before Kanye put Drake in a group text message with Virgil and Pusha T, followed by posting Drake’s Toronto home address, which according to Rick Ross was something that many people already knew.

Despite the release of both albums, the proverbial shots between the two camps and their leading artists have yet to cease.

OVO’s Baka Not Nice took to IG Friday to vocalize his stance on Kanye’s latest album.

“CLB NO COMPARISON DONDA A DUDD,” he captioned.

On the other hand, Drake’s close friend OVO Mark went on lG ive prior to the release of CLB to say he actually likes DONDA. When the driver reacted with a laugh, Mark said he has no reason to lie or joke about it.

During the latest episode of OVO’s Sound 42 radio show on Sirius XM, Drake debuted Kanye’s track with Andre 3000 called, “Life of the Party.” Before its Sound 42 debut, Ye only played it for Berlin journalist, Musrif, following their interview early this week.

Drake Drops Nationwide Billboards to Reveal ‘Certified Lover Boy’ Features

Drake Drops Nationwide Billboards to Reveal 'Certified Lover Boy' Features

Drake’s Certified Lover Boy album details continue to pour out. Throughout Wednesday, The Boy dropped Billboards across the country, telling fans in different cities that their hometown hero will appear on the album.

Elliott Wilson highlighted the countrywide drops, letting fans in Chicago, California, Atlanta, Memphis, and Houston know that the Toronto legend has some heat on the way.

In some cities, Drake is very blatant in letting fans know who is featured. Drake specifically let Chicago know that Lil Durk is involved, while a quartet of Atlanta stars in Future, Lil Baby, 21 Savage, and Young Thug are present. Memphis is held down by Project Pat and Yebba, while California will have Ty Dolla $ign and Giveon. The mystery comes in for Houston and New York City.

For NYC, Drake simply stated, “The GOAT Is On CLB.” Many believed the universal selection for the GOAT is JAY-Z, but some online have left room open for Nicki Minaj as the ad could hint at a pick for the GOAT of women rappers.

For Houston, Drizzy states the Hometown Hero is on the album. That led many to believe that it was Travis Scott, while some also wondered whether it could4 be Beyonce. There are also some darkhorse candidates in Trae Tha Truth and Bun B.

Check out the Billboards below and let us know who you think the NYC and HTown picks are.

OVO Member Provides Update For Drake’s ‘Certified Lover Boy’

Drake Announces 'Certified Lover Boy' Delay: 'My Energy Has Been Dedicated to Recovery'

It is clear that Drake is still working to perfect his upcoming project, Certified Lover Boy. Back in August 2020, The Boy dropped the album’s lead single, “Laugh Now, Cry Later,” with the help of Lil Durk. Following the release, he stated that the album would come later in the year. On his birthday, Oct. 24, he shared a promotional video for Certified Lover Boy, but revealed that he suffered a knee injury and had to undergo surgery. An incident as such would certainly cause him to be bedbound, and further delay the project.

According to a close friend and NFL superstar, Odell Beckham Jr., New Years Day, 2021 was the next release date. OBJ’s statement was later confirmed as the initial release date prior to Drake’s injury, per Akademiks. Since then Drake has posted pictures of studio sessions with him and his team, but no music just yet. A leaked track surfaced online entitled, “Lucky Lefty,” but it is unlikely that the song will make it to CLB. He shared a message last month, that the project will come in sometime in 2021. As of now, there are no specified dates.

Drake’s OVO camp took to the Night Owl Sound Instagram story to send a message regarding the highlight anticipated 6th studio album.

“Anything CLB related will be posted by DRAKE himself. Until then hold a seat and wait on it.”

Fans can do nothing but, wait on the most anticipated release of the year. In other news, Drake recently starred in the latest State Farm commercial that premiered during Super Bowl LV.

LeBron James Previews Upcoming JAY-Z, Nipsey Hussle Collaboration

LeBron James Previews Upcoming JAY-Z, Nipsey Hussle Collaboration

The official track list for the highly-anticipated Judas and the Black Messiah movie was unveiled and it’s stacked with Hip Hop heavyweights.

But the most notable track was the JAY-Z and Nipsey Hussle collaboration “What It Feels Like.” LeBron James got his hands on the record and blessed us with a preview.

LeBron is vibing in the teaser below and you can hear Hov shoutout OVO producer, 40.

The soundtrack for the film, which was executive produced by Hit-Boy, Dash Sherrod, Ryan Coogler, and Archie Davis, also guest features Polo G, Saba, Smino, Rapsody, Pooh Shiesty, Kiana Ledé, Black Thought, Nas, Bump J, G Herbo, and others.

The soundtrack will be released on February 12th, the same day Judas and the Black Messiah is released on HBO Max.

This marks Nipsey and JAY-Z’s first collaboration, but Hov has long expressed support for Nip. In 2013, the late rapper was selling his Crenshaw CD for $100 as apart of his Proud to Pay campaign for his real supporters. The mixtape came with an autograph and a free ticket to his show.

“I got a DM on Twitter from a respected hip-hop journalist and he was just like, ‘Hov respects the move, salute,’ Nipsey Hussle told MTV in 2013. “A little while later, I got an email that came through my team that was like, ‘Roc Nation, on behalf of Jay Z wants to buy 100 units. Who do we pay? When can we get the shipment out?’”

Which other record are you excited to hear?

I can write for days but you know what I’m saying. I love you bro.”

Troll or Truce: Drake Allegedly Sends Mysterious Message To Kanye West

Kanye West Drags Drake for Following Kim Kardashian on Instagram

Drake and Kanye West have sustained an odd relationship since the “Nonstop” artist’s entry into Rap superstardom over 10 years ago. Both superstars have engaged into a highly publicized and budding feud over the past two years. It was ignited after Ye produced Pusha T’s “Infrared.” The song included a Drake diss, following the OVO camp’s visit to Wyoming to work on West’s 2018 project, Ye. Following Drake and Pusha rebuttal with “Dubby Freestyle,” and “The Story of Addidon, the beef hit a pause. Since then Drake has sent subtle shots at Ye in several tracks. His latest verbal shot came in “Laugh Now Cry Later.”

Distance between us is not like a store
This isn’t a closeable gap

The Views artist refers to Ye recent partnership with The GAP. In a post and delete by OVO producer, Neenyo, Drake seems to have sent something addressed to Kanye in a black envelope. With a subtle shot on his recent track, one would assume that the relationship is still filled with turmoil. The letter led many to believe otherwise. Is it troll or truce? Fans were able to screenshot the picture before Neenyo deleted it.

Both legendary artists have teased upcoming projects over the past month, but we have yet to receive an album release date. Drake is set to release Certified Lover Boy after teasing album merch. The Yeezy CEO is gearing up for the release of DONDA. Over the past few weeks, he has been spotted with Lil Baby, 2 Chainz and Rick Ross, which is an encouraging sign that the album is on its way.

As far as the letter, Neenyo stated that the picture was of an old letter “from years ago. Guess we’ll have to hold our breaths on the reconciliation of Ye and Drake.

In an IG comment, Drake let the world know who he thinks is or was nicer than himself on the mic.

Everybody knows who B.I.G., Jay-Z, Lil Wayne and Andre 3000 are, but not everyone is familiar with OVO signee Young Tony. Otherwise known as OVO Hush, Tony released several mixtapes over a decade ago, however he’s been in Drake’s camp for years.
