Drake Ties The Beatles With Yet Another Billboard Sales Milestone

 Heavy lies the crown. As Drake continues to plot his next musical endeavor, the Canadian icon has achieved yet another major sales milestone. After his and Chris Brown‘s “No Guidance” debuted in the ninth spot Billboard’s Hot 100, Drizzy locked down the 34th Top 10 single his impressive career. The latest win ties him with the legendary band The Beatles, whom many still measure as a benchmark success, legacy, and songwriting prowess.

At this rate, Drake will likely find himself surpassing the quartet, given that he’s actively recording new music. In fact, we recently received a pair new singles, spurred on by a bout Canadian pride. After all, the man wants his chips with the dip. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Drizzy ride the momentum the historic Raptors win, delivering some new music before the year is over. But can he seize the number one spot?

As it stands, Madonna currently holds the record with 38. Should Drake continue along his current trajectory, his ascension feels inevitable. One does not simply forget how to make hits, especially after thirty-four bonafide successes. Not bad, considering the entirety his journey transpired in less than a decade. Congrats to Drizzy, and let this be a win for hip-hop culture in general. Seeing a rapper at the top would solidify the genre as a dominant force in North American culture, especially to those who feed f statistics. Here’s to Drake’s next hit. 

Raptors Parade Alleged Gunman Dramatically Tackled By Police: Watch

Yesterday was supposed to be a time to celebrate for Toronto Raptors fans as their team won their first ever NBA championship last Thursday. Millions people took to the streets Toronto to watch the team travel throughout the city and raise their title trophy in the air as an act triumph. Unfortunately, the festivities turned sour when a shooting took place near the back Nathan Phillips Square. Four people were injured and treated for their injuries and it has been reported that all four victims will be okay and that three suspects have been arrested.

One the alleged gunmen was arrested in dramatic fashion as he was tackled by six police ficers. The arrest occurred just outside the Eaton Center and elicited some screams from frightened passersby. The man seemed to be trying to run away and that’s when he was tackled.

In another video, you can hear four gunshots fired which then leads to people running away from the scene in an absolute panic. Luckily, no more shots were fired and authorities were eventually able to get the crowd under control.

According to TMZ, it was the team’s broadcast man Matt Devlin who was able to calm everyone down.

Parkland Shooting Survivor Gets Harvard Admission Rescinded Over Racist Remarks

Harvard University recently rescinded the admission a particular student over racist remarks previously made. Kyle Kashuv, a survivor the Stoneman Douglas High School (aka Parkland) shooting, has found himself in quite a situation after a fellow Parkland student published screenshots racial slurs Kashuv used in messages while attending Stoneman Douglas. In the Google Doc found, Kashuv allegedly wrote the N-word numerous times and made racist jokes. For instance, Kashuv called Black athletes N-word jocks. Kashuv, a pro-gun conservative who gained popularity due to his status as a Parkland survivor and political stance, went on Twitter to plead his case. 

“A few weeks ago, I was made aware egregious and callous comments classmates and I made privately years ago when I was sixteen years old, months before the shooting,” he shared before issuing an apology. He also attempted to victimize himself, adding that the media coverage from his comments sent him “into one the darkest spirals my life.” After a series opponents reached out for Harvard to pull back his admission and thus far the university has reached out to Karuv for an explanation. Following some back-and-forth, the university chose to rescind Kyle’s admission and rightfully so considering the establishment reserves the right to do so “if you engage or have engaged in behavior that brings into question your honesty, maturity, or moral character.” Check out the thread below. 

Kawhi Leonard Reportedly Not Interested In The Lakers

Kawhi Leonard will be one the biggest stories in free agency thanks to his unique situation with the Toronto Raptors. Leonard just helped the team win their first ever championship and won NBA Finals MVP in the process. Despite his success with the Raptors, it has been believed for some time now that he actually wants to play in Los Angeles where he grew up. In the meantime, Raptors fans are trying to convince the superstar to stay so that he can instill some longterm success for the franchise.

It has also been reported that the Lakers are interested in Leonard but based on a new report from Adrian Wojnarowski, Leonard is more interested in playing for the other team in Los Angeles, the Clippers.

As he explains, Leonard probably wouldn’t even take a meeting with the Lakers and that he is leaning towards staying with the Raptors or heading over to Doc Rivers and the Clippers. Either decision would be huge for the league as the Raptors are trying to become a dynasty while the Clippers are looking to become a contender in the depleted Western Conference.

Free agency begins on June 30th at 6 P.M. EST so that’s when players will be allowed to start meeting with teams.

"X-Men: Dark Phoenix" Director Takes Blame For Movie’s Box Office Flop

We’ve been actively reporting on the numbers tied to the recent installment to the X-Men franchise, Dark Phoenix. And from the beginning its roll-out in theatres, it has been doing poorly. To begin, the disappointing box fice number related to Dark Phoenix’s debut meant the movie had the worst opening in the franchise’s history with a meager $14 million dollars nationwide and $33 million over the weekend. Moreover, the L’s continued being taken upon the movie’s second week wherein sales plummeted by 83%, only bringing in $2.438 million dollars during its second week. Many have blamed the movie’s underperformance as a result “franchise fatigue,” something Men In Black: International slightly experienced but not as badly. Moreover, the director behind the movie has now spoken and is taking full responsibility for the movie doing so badly

According to People, Dark Phoenix director Simon Kinberg took blame during an interview with The Business Podcast: “This weekend for me was certainly more disappointing then I’d anticipated, but I was anticipating or bracing for a tough weekend. I’d always felt like we had a tough date for this particular movie.” In addition, Kinberg adds that Avengers: Endgame’s huge success did not help, “Coming out 5-6 weeks after what will be the biggest, or second biggest movie in the history cinema that happens to also be in the genre superheroes was tough for us. But I wouldn’t blame it on the weekend, like it clearly is a movie that didn’t connect. That’s on me.” 

Kyrie Irving Reportedly Ghosted The Celtics Ahead Of Free Agency

Along with players like Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard, Kyrie Irving will be one the most sought after free agents this Summer. Irving has made it clear that he no longer wants to play with the Boston Celtics and will be looking to sign with a new team. Rumors state that Kyrie wants to join the Brooklyn Nets and that he would even be interested in playing with Anthony Davis and LeBron James in Los Angeles. Wherever Irving goes, he will surely make that team better so it’s no surprise that teams are lining up to sign him as quickly as possible.

Irving can still sign with the Celtics but according to a report from Adam Himmelsbach the Boston Globe, it seems like Kyrie isn’t interested even talking to them.

Per Himmelsbach:

“The strangest part the Irving situation right now is that it appears he has essentially ghosted on the Celtics. The people within the organization I have spoken with have made it clear that they have had little, if any, communication with Irving in recent weeks.”

Teams will ficially be allowed to have conversations with players as June 30th at 6 P.M. EST so it will be a couple weeks before we know what Irving’s ficial decision. Be sure to stay tuned for the latest on free agency and player signings.

Kawhi Leonard Explains His Plans For NBA Free Agency

Heading into free agency, one the most intriguing stories will involve Kawhi Leonard the Toronto Raptors. Leonard just helped win the NBA Championship for the Raptors and picked up NBA Finals MVP honors in the process. He is a free agent this summer and the whole league is wondering if he will come back to Toronto or if he will go to Los Angeles where he grew up. There have been reports that the Lakers and Knicks are looking into the superstar while the Raptors are doing the most to keep him with the team.

During the championship parade yesterday, Leonard was asked about his plans for free agency and as you would expect from the Board Man, he’s not divulging too much information just yet.

“I’m going to take the right time,” Leonard told Ian Harrison  the Associated Press. “You don’t need too many days to figure it out. We’ll see what happens. Once that time comes, then we’ll all lay the pros and cons out.”

If Leonard stays with the Raptors, the team has the opportunity to reach dynasty status especially with the Warriors depleted heading into next season. If he goes to the Clippers or Lakers, both those teams would become instant contenders.

And it’s these internal obstacles that must be challenged in order to muster the courage to forge new paths that we can see in the world.”

Bill Cosby Gives Lectures On Life Lessons & Parenting In Prison: Report

Regardless his location and the convictions against him, Bill Cosby continues to operate as a moral authority. The 81-year-old is currently serving a three-10 year sentence in state prison after being convicted three counts aggravated indecent assault. Nevertheless, Cosby has been able to communicate with the outside world telephone and social media. 

For decades, fans equated Cosby’s “Heathcliff Huxtable” character with the real-life Bill Cosby, therefore his image has always been steeped in wholesome memories. The comedian’s recent scandals have tarnished that image, but while millions fans have turned their backs to him, Cosby still sees himself as America’s favorite father. 

Cosby’s representative, Andrew Wyatt, chatted with TMZ to share what life has been like behind bars for the elderly entertainer. According to Wyatt, Cosby may be keeping a busier schedule nowadays, considering that he’s reportedly giving four lectures per week to fellow inmates. As many as 100 prisoners show up to hear Cosby give life advice about parenting. Subjects include advising inmates on how to help their children stay out prison, and for those being released, how they can re-bond with their children.

The actor reportedly is also giving inmates interview techniques for those who looking for work after their sentence is up, and he’s also advising addicts on how to stay sober. Wyatt says, “These are the types men he has wanted to get his messages across to for years, and now he has a totally captive audience.”

Tory Lanez’s Claims Of Colorism On Set Are Untrue According To Directors: Report

Tory Lanez has been the center controversy over the last few days after a video surfaced that showed him standing against colorism. The clip shows Lanez on the set  Nafe Smallz’s “Good Love,” a track where he lends his vocals. In the scene, Lanez shares space with a dark-skinned model until someone asks her to step out so that she can be replaced with a lighter-skinned model. Lanez calls a time-out before bringing the original model back in. 

As the video circulated throughout social media, the response was divided. Some people applauded Lanez for acknowledging colorism while others suggested that it was a staged act. Lanez received a bit backlash following his Ayesha Curry trade joke, and some fans felt as if this was his way making up for it. However, Lanez put those rumors to rest when he took to his Instagram Story and shared that he wasn’t faking or staging anything. 

“The internet has a funny way tryna make the light f truthful shit. If this was a publicity stunt, why would I be doing it for someone else’s music video,” Lanez said. “Mind y’all this video shoot happened 3 months ago and a behind the scenes camera man DM’s it to me the other day,” he continued. “All parties that were involved know exactly what happened in the 30 minutes that I was at the shoot. Whether or not they wanna be truthful.”

That was to be the end the conversation, but TMZ caught up with one-half the duo directors the music video and he wasn’t happy about the suggestion that he favored one model over the other. Capone Capone x Giuse told the publication that they don’t discriminate when it comes to featuring black women with darker skin, especially because they’re heavily involved in the Afrobeats scene and most their work features women with dark complexions. Capone was adamant that no one on his team called for the women to be traded out, noting that most the people on set during that particular scene were from Lanez’s crew.

Toronto Raptors Parade Shooting Leaves Four Wounded

Tens thousands people gathered onto the streets Toronto to watch their NBA Championship team be honored with a parade. The Raptors—and Drake—drove through hoards screaming, adoring fans who wore their favorite Raptors gear and clamored for a glimpse the famous sports figures. It was a cheerful, light-hearted afternoon until gunshots rang out in the crowd. Original reports stated that one person was injured, but NPR now sayd that emergency responders tended to the wounds four individuals.

Thankfully, none the injuries reported were life-threatening and the four people were treated at local hospitals. According to police, they were able to quickly identify and arrest three suspects in connection with the shooting. “We do have people arrested with firearms, and that’s the start the investigation,” Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders told reporters. He then asked witnesses to come forward with any information. The motivation behind the shooting was not revealed.

When the gunshots rang out, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Toronto Mayor John Tory, and Raptors players were onstage. Sportscaster Matt Devlin was hosting the event and alerted the crowd that something serious had happened. “I want to make sure everyone stays calm,” Devlin said. “This is serious. Everyone stay calm…There is an emergency being dealt with.” Andrew Singh, a witness, said “we just saw the girl drop to the floor and the guy running f,” Singh told the AP. “All I heard was, ‘bop bop bop.'”

Anderson .Paak Delivers Freestyle While Visiting Funkmaster Flex At HOT 97

His soulful singles have captured the hearts R&B lovers worldwide, but don’t get it twisted: Anderson .Paak’s freestyle skills are nothing to play with. The hip hop artist has visited his share radio stations where he’s fered to show f his lyrical abilities, and the latest to get a taste what Paak’s working with was New York’s Hot 97. Paak visited Funkmaster Flex to drop some bars and his flow seemed flawless…aside from a few hiccups on the beat.

While Paak was spitting his freestyle, there were some jumps on the tempo. The rapper was able to recover on multiple occasions, but he couldn’t hold in his frustration. Some have argued that it was just the song and no fault to DJ Juanyto who was in the booth and responsible for playing the beat, while others have slammed Juanyto for messing up Paak’s performance. On Funk Flex’s blog, they shared that the loop was downloaded from the internet so it wasn’t necessarily the DJ’s fault.

Meanwhile, Paak has been tearing up festival stages and performing non-stop since the release his last record Ventura. Check out his freestyle with Funkmaster Flex below and let us know your favorite lyrics.

Nelly Says New EP Will Be Produced By Country Group Florida Georgia Line

It’s about time that we received new music from Nelly, and the “Country Grammar” rapper has revealed that his next project is in the works. During a recent interview with Atlanta’s hit radio station V-103, Nelly announced that he’s readyinig the release a new EP. He didn’t give up too many details regarding what fans can expect with the album, but he did share that country duo Florida Georgia Line would have a hand in it.

Before speaking on the project, Nelly shared his plans for the next few months. “This summer I’m going on tour with me, TLC, and Flo Rida. We got the Whole Lotta Hits tour coming out real soon. We’re gonna have a whole bunch fun with that. I also got an EP coming out that’s on a whole ‘nother side that’s executive produced by Florida Georgia Line. It’s on some whole other stuff, so yeah. We still movin’.”

One can only speculate that fans will receive a sound that’s more in line with Nelly’s 2004 Tim McGraw collaboration “Over & Over.” The rapper worked with Florida Georgia Line in the past when he hopped on the remix to their single, “Cruise.” Considering how Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” has dominated the charts, it wouldn’t be surprising to see more artists step into the country game. Nelly was one the firsts, so if he does go that route, it won’t be unfamiliar territory.

Back in 2015, it was announced that the rapper was working on his Heartland EP. “He’s a free agent on the label side now, and is working on a country-based Heartland EP, which should be really interesting,” Nelly’s manager told Billboard at the time. “He may be one the first hip-hop artists to jump into that space in an authentic way with Florida Georgia Line and Tim McGraw, so we think he has an opportunity to grow that base even more.”
