It seems as though all those pretzels Nav endured while eating with Drake and The Weeknd was worth it since the Rexdale bred rapper has secured himself as a notable act from the city who can charge $80K for a verse. Sources state that the price tag amount is verbatim from The Weeknd’s manager Amir “Cash” Esmailian.

The previously estimated amount Nav was securing per feature was $20K but it appears someone was $60K f. It’s fair to say Nav has come a long way since his debut, self-titled album from 2017. Even before his album, the 29-year-old worked alongside Drake on his former Meek Mill diss track “Back To Back” that dropped in July 2015. One year later Nav linked with Travis Scott on “Beibs in the Trap” that peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 and later went platinum. 

As for what’s up next for the homie, Nav’s set to hit the road to accompany ScHoolboy Q on his Crash tour that kicks f November 4th and stopping f in 19 cities before concluding on December 4th in Q’s hometown Los Angeles. Wonder how much coin Nav’s pulling in for his involvement?

Taylor Swift Talks Past Problems With Kanye West: “He Did The Same Thing To Drake”

Rolling Stone released a new cover story today (Sept. 18) on Taylor Swift, where she goes in depth about her newly released album Lover, past relationships, and more. Taylor even talked in detail about her past problems with Kanye West, which she has now accepted is just on “bad terms.”

Speaking on Kanye’s Vanguard Award moment at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, where he ran up on stage, Taylor said Ye called and talked with her for over an hour about getting her to present the award before he eventually turned on her.

“He can be the sweetest. And I was so stoked that he asked me that. And so I wrote this speech up, and then we get to the VMAs and I make this speech and he screams, ‘MTV got Taylor Swift up here to present me this award for ratings!’ And I’m standing in the audience with my arm around his wife, and this chill ran through my body,” she said. “I realized he is so two-faced. That he wants to be nice to me behind the scenes, but then he wants to look cool, get up in front everyone and talk shit. And I was so upset.”

Taylor then says she still tried to move beyond all this after Kanye apologized and later called her regarding her reference on his song “Famous.” “For all my Southside niggas that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous,” he rapped on the Pablo record.

Taylor says once she heard the final version the song, she just accepted the “bad terms” their relationships. She said, “I’m done with this. If you want to be on bad terms, let’s be on bad terms, but just be real about it,” before going onto say he did the same thing to Drake.

“And then he literally did the same thing to Drake,” she added. “He gravely affected the trajectory Drake’s family and their lives. It’s the same thing. Getting close to you, earning your trust, detonating you. I really don’t want to talk about it anymore because I get worked up, and I don’t want to just talk about negative shit all day, but it’s the same thing. Go watch Drake talk about what happened.”

Drake Gets Special Permission To Have Taller Fences Surrounding Toronto Mansion

When Drake was given the key to the city Toronto it clearly meant he was able to open any door he wants and one those doors has given him special permission to break a city bylaw. According to CTV News, Drake has been permitted to build extra tall fences on the outside his Toronto mansion for the sake security concerns. 

“The amount people that try to come onto this property during the day and at night is very, very significant,” Brad Rafauli, vice-president the Ferris Rafauli Architectural Design Build Group said in a meeting. “Security is really left in his hands.” The city Toronto doesn’t allow residents to have fences taller than two meters (6.5 f). The “Feel No Ways” musician already spent $1 million on 20-foot cedar trees to line the home but apparently it’s simply not enough.

A representative attended the meeting on behalf one Drake’s neighbor who’s against the move but other than that, Brad stated that there’s been “very little opposition.”

“Everyone knows where he eats, where he sleeps, and that has really freaked him out,” he added. “Security is really, really high on the list.”

Drake Surprises Superfan With Invite To Upcoming Show: "You Going 2 Hard"

Drake not only has his whole city Toronto repping him to the max but he’s also got a fair share superfans at every corner the world that have shown love to him from day one. One fan by the name  David Jagun, who’s based in Nigeria, has been supporting Drizzy for as far back as his Instagram timeline will take us. A scroll on David’s feed shows numerous videos  him rapping Drake lyrics and doing his own renditions some Drizzy’s biggest hits. 

The “Feel No Ways” rapper has finally taken notice David and has shared a post letting the homie know that he’s going to be flown out to one Drake’s shows real soon. “Nah @davidjagun I am flying you to a show ASAP you going 2 hard 🛫🛸🚀🛩,” Drake captioned a video to his own feed.

David was clearly all kinds excited, promoting a response: “GOD BLESS DRAKE, GOD BLESS OVO SOUND RADIO, GOD BLESS OVO TEAM, GOD BLESS CANADA.”

Is Drake Taking Shots at Kanye West with His Hoodie?

Is Drake reigniting his feud with Kanye West?

On Friday evening, the 6 God posted a photo of himself exiting his Maybach at a Lil Keed concert at The Novo in Los Angeles wearing a grey Cactus Plant Flea Market hoodie that reads “ye must be Born again.” Later in the night, he was seen wearing the same hoodie while leaving The Nice Guy in West Hollywood.

Family extended like 30 shots

A post shared by champagnepapi (@champagnepapi) on

Ye is not only Kanye’s nickname, but also the title of his latest album. The “ye must be Born again” catchphrase has been interpreted by some as a shot at Kanye and his recent antics. After Drake posted the photo, social media called him out for trolling Ye, while some even thought it could signal the end of their feud.

Drake and Kanye have yet to publicly squash their beef. Last year, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper called out Drake on Twitter for threatening him and his family and dissing him on Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode.” Drake also accused Ye of providing Pusha-T with intel about his son that he used on his “Story of Adidon” diss.

“There would never be a drake without a Kanye west so never come out your mouth with a threat,” Ye tweeted in August 2018.

During an interview with David Letterman for his Netflix series “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” in May, Ye made reference to their rivalry. “An artist which I will not mention, because I’m not allowed to mention him or any of his family members…” he said. “We had a little beef last year.”

But the hoodie may be harmless. Pharrell and other celebrities have worn the same Cactus Plant Flea Market “Born Again ’19” hoodie. In January, Cactus Plant Flea Market told Hypebeast that the slogan is a biblical reference and not a Kanye nod.

James Harden, Russell Westbrook Look Like BFFs At Drake’s Show In Vegas

Houston Rockets teammates James Harden and Russell Westbrook made the trip to Las Vegas this past weekend to take in Drake‘s concert at XS Nightclub at the Encore.

As seen in the footage embedded below, the former NBA MVPs were seen dancing together while Drizzy performed Sicko Mode just feet away.

As for how the pairing will mesh on the court in the upcoming season, The Beard doesn’t seem concerned about their ability to co-exist. 

“It’s like, yo, we’ll figure it out,” Harden said in a recent interview with GQ. “Everything isn’t necessarily going to be smooth at first, there are going to be ups and downs, and that’s part an 82-game season. Hopefully, by the end the season, we’ve caught a rhythm and everybody is on the same page going into the playfs. That’s all you can ask for.

He continued: “There’s a different kind relationship and communication that we have, a different type excitement that we have for each other. We don’t really care or pay attention to what other people say or think.”

Last season, Harden finished second to Giannis Antetokounmpo in the MVP race, as he led the league in scoring with 36.1 points per game to go along with 7.5 assists and 6.6 rebounds. Meanwhile, Westbrook averaged a triple-double for the third consecutive season, averaging 22.9 points, 11.1 rebounds and 10.7 assists per night.

The superstar duo, who last played together as teammates in OKC during the 2011-12 season, will kickf the new season at home against Giannis and the Bucks on October 24.

Is Drake Trolling Kanye With His “Ye Must Be Born Again” Sweatshirt?

Could Drake be reigniting his feud with Kanye West? Maybe? On Friday night, the 6 God posted a photo himself exiting his Maybach while rockin’ a grey hoodie that read “ye must be Born again” (see below).

Ye course is not only Kanye’s nickname, but also the title his latest album. The “ye must be Born again” phrase has been interpreted by some as a shot at Kanye and his recent antics, meanwhile others think he could be trying to end the feud.

Drake and Kanye have yet to publicly squash their beef. Last year, the Chicago rapper called out Drake on Twitter for threatening him and his family and dissing him on Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode.” Drake also accused Ye providing Pusha-T with intel about his son that he used on his “Story Adidon” diss. “Still need that apology for mentioning the 350’s and trying to take food out your idols kids mouths,” Kanye tweeted. “Been trying to meet with you for 6 months bro. You sneak dissing on Travis] records and texting Kris talking bout how’s the family.”

Check out some more tweets (below) and let us know what you think. Is Drizzy being slick here with the shot or is this nothing?

Travis Scott May Be Featured On Young Thug’s “Hot” Remix

Well it looks like Travis Scott might be making a guest appearance on Young Thug’s upcoming remix to “Hot” with Gunna. Over the weekend, both artists took to their respective IG stories to tease the possible remix.

Thugger first shared a screenshot an “open” verse being left on his & Gunna’s record, meanwhile Travis had a more a convincing story by posting the “flame” emoji with the words “HOT” spelt out across (see both posts below).

And if that wasn’t enough, Gunna himself also teased the remix by sharing Travis’ screenshot on his own IG, writing “@travisscott LaFlame” while leaving the flame emoji as well. Now none this is confirmation that Travis will ficially be on the remix, but it definitely is looking that way. The last time these two linked up was on “The London” with J. Cole. We’ll keep you posted moving forward. 

In other news, Young Thug just got out the hospital this week after enduring a recent procedure, and he was spotted Friday night at Lil Keed’s concert in Los Angeles along with Drake. Peep footage from that wild night right here if you happened to have missed it.

Rick Ross Drops Majestic “Gold Roses” Video

Miami, FL – Rick Ross delivers yet another visual from his Port Of Miami 2 album with the stunning video for his standout collaboration with Drake “Gold Roses.”

Rozay and Drizzy had recently linked up together in the visual for the 6 God’s “Money In The Grave” track, but the video for “Gold Roses” opts for a different approach.

Putting an emphasis on Ross’ two verses, the video version axes Drake’s verse, in favor of his chorus, and allows Rozay to lackadaisically spit his elegant lyrics amongst scenes filled with women, real gold roses and of course, gold bottles of Belaire rosé.

Ross has seemingly been motivated to give back as of late. In addition to the numerous visuals, the rapper teamed up with Rockwell Miami nightclub for a Hurricane Dorian relief event that raised over $10,000.

Enjoy the gifts from the biggest boss and watch the full video for “Gold Roses” above.

Watch Rick Ross’ ‘Gold Roses’ Video Featuring Drake

After teaming up in the “Money in the Grave” video, Rick Ross debuts the video for his Drake collaboration “Gold Roses.”

In the dark and pensive clip, the Maybach Music boss reflects on not winning a Grammy (“But I understand they’ll never understand me”) as he stands by the piano in his architectural pad with a lady by his side. The Bawse continues to share his introspective rhymes in a dimly-lit room covered with gold roses from floor to ceiling. Drizzy, whose verse was cut from the visual, does not make an appearance.

“Gold Roses” can be found on Rozay’s 10th album Port of Miami 2, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. This week he became a New York Times bestseller as his memoir Hurricanes debuted at No. 11 on the Hardcover Nonfiction list.

Watch the “Gold Roses” video below.

Swae Lee ‘Sextasy’

Swae Lee takes you to “Sextasy” in his hypnotizing new video.

The Rae Sremmurd crooner gets caught up in an intoxicating relationship with his model co-star Cenit Nadir in the sensual clip, directed by Chuck Grant and Mike WiLL. The couple showcases their chemistry while driving down the Pacific Coast Highway in a vintage Corvette Stingray and sitting poolside at their Malibu pad surrounded by flamingos. They hit the beach at night while Swae sprays champagne and lights a joint under the stars.

Swae Lee dropped the Mike WiLL Made-It and Chopsquad DJ-produced “Sextasy,” along with his Drake collaboration “Won’t Be Late,” last month. He is now working on a solo album as well as Rae Sremmurd’s SremmLife 4.

On Saturday, Swae will hit the road with Post Malone on “The Runaway Tour” in Tacoma, Wash. The North American trek travels to Las Vegas, Toronto, Atlanta, Miami, and more before wrapping Nov. 20 in Los Angeles.

Drake Jokingly Reminisces On His Degrassi Days With Throwback Photo

Once upon a time, before becoming one the most successful artists to ever live, Drake was an actor on a small-time Canadian show called Degrassi. If you’re a Drake fan, you probably know this already but when you consider everything he has done over the last ten years, it’s hard to believe he was ever on such a show. People develop and go on to do bigger and better things all the time, although this doesn’t make Drake’s meteoric rise to superstardom any less significant.

The Toronto rapper has never been shy to put on for his city or remember where he came from with a lighthearted fondness. Recently, Drake took to Instagram where he reminisced about his Degrassi days and how from time to time, he will get flashbacks about the show, usually at inopportune times.

“Sometimes when I am drunk and bored in the club I stare down and see degrassi scripts….no rap 🧢,” Drake wrote.

For now, it doesn’t seem like we will see Drake act in such a capacity again, although we’re sure some his day one fans would love to see him reprise his role as Jimmy Brooks. It will probably be a while before that ever happens again, though.

Rihanna Hints That She Might Be Pregnant, Fans Lose Their Minds

Rihanna is one the biggest artists in the world and hasn’t released a new album in three years. Fans are eager for some fresh music and as right now, it looks like she will be dropping something in December. While she hasn’t confirmed that herself, she is now contributing to some other rumors that already have fans getting all riled up on social media.

The star was out in New York City to host the fifth annual Diamond Ball and during an interview with Essence, she made some interesting comments. Rihanna was speaking on the power black women and hinted that she may actually be pregnant.

“I’m a Black woman,” Rihanna said. “I came from a Black woman, who came from a Black woman, who came from a Black woman AND…I’m going to give birth to a Black woman.”

Of course, this sent fans into a complete tailspin on Twitter as they started to dissect her comments and look for further clues that she is pregnant. For instance, some people felt as though she had a bit a baby bump last night and that it’s just more fuel to the pregnancy fire.

Check out some the best reactions to the rumors below.
