Drake probably isn’t flying anywhere anytime soon (we hope) but that doesn’t mean he can’t prepare for when the lockdown is over. Many rappers and celebrities have flaunted flying private. Drake, on the other hand, flexes a little bit differently than most. The rapper debuted his personal jet last summer as he celebrated the Raptors win, among other things.

Taking to Instagram, Virgil Abloh appeared to confirm that he’ll be the one redesigning Drake’s private jet. Virgil Abloh hit the ‘Gram where he shared a sneak peek at some redesigning he’s doing to Drake’s plane in an unknown location. “the tail number is a problem and the FBO is a whole other story,” he wrote. From the look it, Drake’s trying to camouflage in the sky with style as Virgil Abloh added some Nothing Was The Same-type aesthetic to it.
Giannis Antetokounmpo has been proving himself to be one the best players in the entire NBA and prior to the NBA hiatus, he was in the discussion to win his second-straight NBA MVP award. Now, he spends most his time on IG Live where he answers fan questions. Recently, Giannis was talking about who he hatest to play in front the most. Giannis even mentioned the Toronto Raptors and how Drake is pretty up there. However, Giannis immediately retracted his Drake statement and claimed that Raptors Superfan Nav is the one who annoys him the most because the way he is constantly talking trash.
Nav saw the clip Giannis’ admission and immediately took to Twitter where he noted that everything he says is all fun and games. The superfan even fered Giannis a meal for the next time he comes to Toronto.
“Hahaha @Giannis_An34love you like family before and after the game but during those 48 minutes I have to do whatever it takes to give my boys the edge! You have to know when you visit Toronto you get the 1-2 punch @Drakethen the superfan 🙂 dinner on me next time #staysafe,” Nav wrote.
Clearly, these two have a friendly rivalry that is all in good fun. For Nav, the rivalry has been just a tad one-sided so far. Perhaps that will change when the Bucks beat the Raptors in a playf series.
As this moment, the battle is still going on, but there have already been a few noteworthy bits that floored rap fans. Both famed producers pulled f big moves when they each previewed new tracks. Boi-1da captured attention after sharing a clip from an unreleased song with Drake and Roddy Ricch. It was an instant hit.
Meanwhile, Hit-Boy wasn’t going down without a fight, so he pulled out a track with Nipsey Hussle and Big Sean. Everyone went wild to know that there’s a new Neighborhood Nip song that has yet to be released, but who knows if it will actually see the light day on streaming networks. Meanwhile, fans are weighing in—heavily—on which revelation was harder, so take a listen and let us know your opinions below.
If you’re a celebrity like Joe Budden and you find yourself with a few extra stacks laying around since strip clubs are closed, then it’s not a bad idea to give back to those in need.

“Ok you guys, the strip clubs are closed which means 3 things,” he began. “1. I’m bored 2. My IG looks a lot better without those stupid flyers. & 3. I’m blessed to have saved a few bucks 🥴 & I much rather give it to y’all since the world is cold an our government is colder, here’s my idea.” The podcast host asked for people to send their stories and CashApp names for free money. “Nah this not funded or sponsored by anyone… it’s me having a heart dammit lol.”
It’s unclear how much money he sent out, but Joe Budden did respond publicly to let certain Twitter users know that he was sending them money. Check out a few responses below.
One the most iconic Air Jordan sneakers all time is the Air Jordan 11 which was released all the way back in 1996. Since then, there have been a ton dope colorways and samples. Numerous celebrities have gotten their very own Air Jordan 11 PEs over the years, including none other than Usher. Yes, that’s right, Usher got his very own Air Jordan 11 back in 2014 when he performed at the iHeartRadio Music Festival.
Thanks to @solesupreme on Instagram, we now have some detailed images one the samples. As you can see, the shoe has a glossy gold upper while the midsole is white and the outsole has a dirty gum bottom. On the inside the tongue, Usher’s name is written in gold. There are even some starts on the front portion the tongue.
Overall, this is a gorgeous sample that unfortunately, will never see the light day from a retail perspective. Regardless, this is a dope shoe that certainly has a place amongst some the best PEs we’ve seen.
Let us know in the comments below what you think this shoe and whether or not you would cop the colorway without all the Usher references.
Drake is once again taking his talents behind the screen. The OVO Sound founder is set to executive produce a series based on Robert Greene’s best-selling book, 48 Laws of Power, for the soon-to-launch short-form video platform, Quibi.
The series, which will have the same title as the book, will reportedly “detail the nature of power and how one can secure and maintain it.”
“When Drake and I sat down with Robert Greene, it was incredibly inspiring,” Drake’s co-manager and executive producer Adel “Future” Nur told Billboard. “The laws allow for a wide range of dynamic storytelling, and Quibi allows us to tell these stories in bite-sized chapters similar to the book.”
Alongside Drake and Nur, Jason Shirer of Drake’s Dremcrew production company, Anonymous Content’s Zack Hayden and Greene will also executive produce the series. Drizzy is expected to direct one episode.
“I have always thought that the 48 Laws of Power would be a perfect fit for a series, bringing to life the timeless Machiavellian game of power as portrayed in the book,” Greene shared with Billboard. “But it was not until Drake and Future with Anonymous Content approached me with their unique cinematic approach to the laws that I knew I could join forces with them and go all in for a filmed interpretation of my work.”
Drake’s ‘Top Boy’ Series Renewed On Netflix
February 27, 2020
Also on the television horizon is Drake’s executive produced series “Top Boy,” which he announced was renewed for its second Netflix season on February 26.
While fans wait for her long-awaited album, the superstar singer is holding them over with a new collaboration with PARTYNEXTDOOR. The OVO Sound crooner has enlisted Rihanna for “Believe It,” which is slated to be the next single off his new album PARTYMOBILE.
PND offered a preview of the rhythmic cut for his fans on Snapchat. The minute-long clip finds Rihanna singing over a laid-back groove.
The two are no strangers to collaborating. PND and Rihanna previously worked together on her ANTI tracks “Work” and “Sex with Me,” as well as DJ Khaled’s 2017 hit “Wild Thoughts.”
PARTYMOBILE, PND’s first project in two-and-a-half years, drops tonight. In addition to Rihanna, the project features the Drake-assisted single “Loyal” and the remix with Bad Bunny.
“Believe It” marks Rihanna’s first new music since her 2017 N.E.R.D. collaboration “Lemon.” She was recently in the studio with The Neptunes working on her ninth album dubbed “R9” by fans. “I like to look at it as a reggae-inspired or reggae-infused album,” she told Vogue of the follow-up to 2016’s ANTI. “It’s not gonna be typical of what you know as reggae.”
The Freebandz rapper is helping fans get through trying times with new music. On Friday, Future dropped his surprise track “Tycoon” along with a video. Hndrxx boasts about his “big dog” lifestyle including chinchilla sheets and “Balencies” on his feet. “I’m a big dog, they a little son to me,” raps Lori Harvey’s boyfriend. “Till they throw the sheets on me I’m goin’ crazy.”
The Eif Rivera-directed clip captures the jet-setter, flying private with his model girlfriend and riding in his Rolls-Royce Ghost. But jealous ones still envy. While he’s living his life, a group of armed men try to break into his house. “Ain’t going no no, streets dangerous,” raps Future.
“Tycoon” marks Future’s first solo release this year. Back in January, he and Drake released their collaboration “Life Is Good,” which has been certified 2x platinum.
Kehlani and PARTYNEXTDOOR dated for a little while a few years ago before the Bay Area singer spent some time with Kyrie Irving, sparking tons headlines about infidelity and their highly-public break-up. Around that time, a song leaked that many believed was about the cheating that occurred during their relationship. That track finally earned an ficial release, titled “Savage Anthem,” on PND’s new album PARTYMOBILE, and a new lyric was added about the “smell” left in the living room after their split.
Kehlani actually ended up responding to the speculation that the line was about her in a since-deleted tweet, but then it appears as though she logged onto a burner account to defend herself further.
“I broke her f in the livin’ room/There is a smell in the livin’ room,” says Party in the song, which also mentions his return to Oakland, which is where Lani resides. Kehlani ended up speaking out, deleting a post which read: “Because I see you’re tryna go viral and this is hella annoying, this is a true story about smelling the OTHER woman thus confirming the cheating, but go f tho fr.”
Interestingly enough, eagle-eyed fans saw that an avatar-less account was tweeting VERY similar things after the post vanished, meaning that Kehlani was possibly operating from an unknown prile.
“He’s talking about the girl he cheated with, don’t be so fucking dense trying to go viral,” wrote the supposed burner account, which has the clever username @burnaboy373.
Do you think Kehlani was using a burner account or is this all just one big coincidence?
For the first time in four long years, Rihanna is ficially back in the music world. It’s been a long time coming and, although we all thought that this moment would come through the arrival R9, it ended up being on PARTYNEXTDOOR’s new album PARTYMOBILE.
Yesterday, a rumor began flying around that the Bajan Beauty would be linking up with PARTYNEXTDOOR for their long-awaited collaboration, and the speculation turned out to be true. Rihanna’s vocals bless us on “Believe It,” the next single from PND’s brand new album. Although she only ends up saying a total about five words, the Rihanna Navy couldn’t be more excited to welcome her back into the fray. Some people don’t think this is a permanent return though.
“Rihanna going back to Fenty after singing 5 words,” wrote one fan on Twitter, sharing a video LeBron James walking out a press session.
Others were more optimistic: “SHE’S ONLY SINGING 5 WORDS BUT ITS A START PEOPLE.”
While her return is underwhelming to some, it lays out a world possibilities for others. Which side the spectrum are you staying on? Do you think Rihanna will be back full-time now, focusing on the eventual release her ninth studio album, or are we just getting our hopes up?
PARTYNEXTDOOR has dropped his PARTYMOBILE album following multiple delays. The project was initially supposed to arrive in January but got pushed back twice, missing its target date in February before finally coming to fruition in March.
The new LP, which was originally titled Club Atlantis, is PND’s first studio album since 2016’s P3. Drake, Rihanna and Bad Bunny appear on the 15-track release.

PartyNextDoor Gets The Claymation Treatment For Drake-Less ‘Loyal’ Video
While fans patiently await her new album, the pop icon holds them over with her first new music in nearly three years. RiRi links with PARTYNEXTDOOR on “Believe It,” a single off his new album PARTYMOBILE.
The slinky R&B jam finds Rihanna dueting with PND over a laid-back groove, produced by Bizness Boi, Cardiak, and Ninetyfour. “That’s when we believe it / Believe you want to see me,” sings RiRi.
The two previously worked together on Rihanna’s ANTI tracks “Work” and “Sex with Me,” as well as DJ Khaled’s chart-topping hit “Wild Thoughts.”
“Believe It” marks the first song from Rihanna since her 2017 N.E.R.D. collaboration “Lemon.” Meanwhile, fans continue to wait for her ninth album. She was recently in the studio with The Neptunes working on the long-awaited project. “I like to look at it as a reggae-inspired or reggae-infused album,” she told Vogue of the follow-up to 2016’s ANTI. “It’s not gonna be typical of what you know as reggae.”
In addition to Rihanna, PARTYMOBILE features the Drake-assisted single “Loyal” and the remix with Bad Bunny.
When Antonio Brown isn’t engaging in antics that are detrimental to his career, he is actually one the best wide receivers in the entire NFL. Some feel like Brown could be one the greatest all time although his f the field issues have guaranteed that it will never happen, at least not in the immediate future. Brown is now a free agent and can go wherever he wants. The only issue is that he is at the complete mercy the NFL. His behavior has made teams want to avoid him and there is no guarantee that the league will let him play should he get a new contract.
While surfing on Instagram recently, Brown was met with the possibility signing with the Baltimore Ravens and playing with MVP winner Lamar Jackson. Brown had two words for this as he said “Scary Site.” Of course, he meant “sight” but we digress. This writer has definitely made some spelling mistakes in his time and you commenters are never shy to point them out.
Brown would certainly be a huge addition to the Ravens as he would bolster their fense and provide an elite weapon for Jackson on the perimeter. Not to mention, Brown would get to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers twice since both teams are divisional rivals.
While this scenario might be a fantasy, for now, it’s certainly interesting to think about.
When 2020 first arrived, music listeners were eager to see what the new decade had in store, nothing but promise on the horizon. Though things started strong with new albums from heavy hitters like Lil Wayne and Eminem and rumored drops from J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, and Drake, the situation quickly took a turn for the worse when the coronavirus reared its ugly head. Now, with the entire rap game in self-imposed quarantine, the entire masterplan has been swiftly and decisively derailed.

Yet The-Dream has never been one to follow a script. Today, the singer –who probably wrote one or two your favorites on the low– took to Instagram to reveal the tracklist to his upcoming album Sextape 4.

Now, he’s gearing up to unleash a thirteen-track endeavor upon us, though he neglects to provide a date.

OVO Sound artist PARTYNEXTDOOR is about to unleash his latest studio album onto us, releasing PARTYMOBILE at midnight tonight. The project is filled with mystery so far and, even though the tracklist has just been revealed, a list features was not provided, keeping a cloud over it for the time being.
A new single from PARTYNEXTDOOR and Rihanna has been rumored for tonight, but we don’t know the title the song yet because the tracklist shared just now contains none the featured guests. Drake, the head OVO Sound, just shared the ficial tracklisting for PARTYNEXTDOOR’s album PARTYMOBILE, exposing the fifteen songs being packaged tonight.

In addition to “The News,” “Split Decision,” and “Loyal,” a number other chunes will be put together and released as PARTYMOBILE tonight. The remix to his Drake collaboration will be added on as a bonus track, with over a dozen other songs making the cut.
