Drake Gifted $500,000 Diamond Jacket

Drake is dripping in diamonds.

Famed Toronto tailor Garrison Bespoke surprised the 6 God by gifting him a one-of-a-kind sports jacket covered in 235 handset diamonds during Tuesday’s Raptors game.

According to Page Six, the custom outerwear costs $550,000 and is made from 100-year-old deadstock jersey cloth from the House of Dormeuil’s private collection.

It is adorned with lab-grown Diamond Foundry diamonds in the shape of a basketball on the inside left-hand lining and Drake’s signature OVO owl logo on the exterior and interior right-hand side.

“It’s a real honour to create a piece for Drake to celebrate a successful year as the Raptors’ Global Ambassador,” said Michael Nguyen, the owner of Garrison Bespoke. “This year, we created a really special jacket that marries old world craft and new world innovation.”

The jacket will fit nicely in Drake’s extravagant wardrobe. He recently showed off his million-dollar outfit including $15,000 Tom Ford crocodile shoes, $200,000 chain, and $750,000 Richard Mille watch.

Drake has also teamed up with Dsquared2 on a line of OVO-branded apparel. The capsule collection, which is sold online and at OVO stores, includes streetwear such as hoodies, track pants, T-shirts, jeans, and denim jackets.

Kodak Black’s Lawyers Describe Rapper’s "Low Income" Upbringing To Petition For Release

Federal prosecutors aren’t letting Kodak Black out on bond without a fight. They’ve painted a picture the rapper as being a danger to society, especially following the news that his fingerprints were linked to a Florida shooting. Kodak remains behind bars following his arrest prior to his Rolling Loud performance when he was taken into custody on charges  making a false statement in connection with the acquisition firearms from a federally licensed dealer.

The 21-year-old’s lawyers have petitioned the court to allow Kodak to be released so that he may fight his sexual assault case in South Carolina. In documents obtained by The BlastKodak’s attorneys are hoping that their portrayal the rapper as a victim the environment he grew up in will sway the judge’s decision.

“Born on June 11, 1997, the boy who would become Kodak grew up in Golden Acres, a small, barracks like cluster public housing originally built in the late 1940s to house farm workers.” They write that his community “spans just over 80 acres and over 170 units” and mirrored other “low income housing tracts” by having an overwhelming presence gangs and drug activity. “People in his old neighborhood talk about a quiet little boy walking around with a notepad, constantly writing rhymes.”

The legal team also state in these latest court documents that they have a plan set in place for Kodak to be under constant supervision. They also argue that the rapper hasn’t ever thought he was using “illegal drugs” because he has a valid license to use cannabis and his mother has gone on  record to say she “has never witnessed her son use illegal drugs.”

Justin Bieber is Launching a Plant-Based Deodorant Later This Year

Mega pop star Justin Bieber has teamed up with Unilever-owned Schmidt’s Naturals to introduce a new deodorant scent.

The Bieber-created scent is called Here Now and was revealed by the singer on his Instagram. He posted a shirtless photo of himself captioned with, “ready for Here Now… new collab coming this fall.”

Bieber appears to have been involved in the conception of the product, collaborating with Schmidt’s on the name, packaging, and scent.  The plant-based product will launch in Fall of this year, though no specific details have been shared.

Bieber announced back in March that he would be taking a hiatus from the world of music. Instead, he said he would focus on his recent marriage to Hailey Baldwin and his mental health.

Despite that announcement, Bieber released a new song with Ed Sheeran earlier this month called ‘I Don’t Care.’ He also collaborated with DJ Khaled on his song, ‘No Brainer.’

Both Bieber and Baldwin have been working on their independent fashion lines, too. Bieber’s contemporary fashion label, Drew House, launched early this year. The line consists of beige and corduroy pieces and graphic T-shirts and sweaters that feature the brand’s smiley face logo. The first pop-up shop for the brand was hosted in March in Hong Kong.

Bieber is no stranger to the fashion world, as he first made his debut as a Calvin Klein underwear spokes model in 2015 and 2016.  Hailey Baldwin is also focusing on her fashion line, called Bieber Beauty. She recently filed for a trademark for the line in April, revealing the line will focus on beauty and cosmetic products.”

As for the deodorant, Schmidt’s may have plucked the perfect celebrity teammate to spread its plant-based all-natural concept.  The tie-up obviously carries pitfalls, though the undoubtedly high-priced alliance could also give Schmidt’s a strong position on well-entrenched deodorant brands.

Charlie Sheen Once Brought A Hooker To Denise Richards’ House On Thanksgiving

Charlie Sheen is really out here. Some men consider him a legend and others think him as an absolute disgrace. He’s been accused some horrible things over the years and with his wild public behaviour, some think he could be guilty. The man once claimed to have “tiger blood” on national television before popularizing the phrase “winning” for us all to enjoy. With several years removed from his very public meltdowns, Denise Richards is shedding light on Sheen and just how crazy things would get with him.

The 48-year-old actress said during a recent episode RHOBH that during the holiday season, Charlie Sheen went over to her house for Thanksgiving dinner and he was afraid to tell her about the prostitute he left waiting in his car. “Charlie came over for Thanksgiving for dinner a few years ago, and he had a hooker in the car in the driveway,” she said. “He was afraid to tell me. ‘Well, she’s in the driveway. Is it OK if she’s in the driveway?’ I said, ‘I’ll set a fucking plate.’ Even a hooker deserves to have Thanksgiving dinner.”

Sheen and Richards were married from 2002 to 2006 and as reported by E! News, they have two children together. Sheen has been open about his struggles with substance abuse and alcoholism.

Sofar Sounds CEO Defends Poor Artist Payouts as Company Raises $25 Million

Sofar Sounds has reached a new fundraising milestone.

Led by Battery Ventures and Union Square Ventures, the house concerts company has raised $25 million.  Sofar Sounds previously raised $6 million from Octopus Ventures and Virgin Group, who also participated in the recent fundraising round.

The announcement comes just three months after Sofar Sounds hired its new CEO, Jim Lucchese.  He previously served as the Global Head of Creator at Spotify.

The company will use the funding to fuel its global expansion plans.  It aims to become “the de facto way emerging artists play outside of traditional venues.”

Showing the company continues to underpay musicians their fair share, Sofar Sounds pays bands just $100 for a 25-minute set.  The company also doesn’t pay host venues anything, while Sofar pockets around $1,000 to $1,600 per gig.  Defending its practice, the company argues bands receive more exposure.

Sofar now hosts over 600 shows per month across 430 cities around the globe.  These include New York, London, Paris, Los Angeles, Buenos Aires, Sydney, and Seoul, among many others.  The company has also claimed 40 of the 25,000 artists who have participated in performances have either received a Grammy nod or a win.

According to a source speaking with TechCrunch, the lack of fair payments to artists likely comes from overhead costs.  Sofar Sounds, a for-profit company, pays full-time employees to focus on venue reservation, artist bookings, and promotion.  The $100 payment artists receive, however, remains only a fraction of what Sofar earns from ticket sales alone.

Speaking about the company’s unfair payments, Joshua McClain, an alternative artist from Oakland, explained,

Sofar…seems to be just fine with leaving out the most integral part: paying the musicians.

Urging people to #BoycottSofarSounds, he adds,

This is where they willingly step onto the same stage as companies like Uber or Lyft – savvy middle-men tech start-ups, with powerful marketing muscle, not-so-delicately wedging themselves in-between the customer and merchant (audience and musician in this case).  In this model, everything but the service-provider is put first: growth, profitability, share-holders, marketers, convenience, and audience members –  all at the cost of the hardworking people that actually provide the service.

Defending the company’s practice, Lucchese said,

$100…for a showcase slot is definitely fair.

He doesn’t think playing “a Sofar [gig] right now is the right move for every type of artist.”   Spinning the poor payouts, Luchesse said shows are “pay-what-you-want” and artists keep “the majority of the money.”

However, in an exposé published two years ago, KQED writer Emma Silvers found most artists don’t know Sofar Sounds is a for-profit company.  They also don’t know the company pockets most of the money earned from gigs.

Speaking with Silvers, Madeline Kenney, another Oakland singer/songwriter, explained,

“I think they talk a lot about supporting local artists, but what they’re actually doing is perpetuating the idea that it’s okay for musicians to get paid s—t.”

Chris Brown To Depose Florida Man Accusing Singer Of Assault: Report

Chris Brown‘s entire career over the past decade has been riddled with clouded by controversy. This year, specifically, he was accused raping a woman in France, got into beef with Offset, and recently agreed to have his home investigated in another case where his friend is accused sexually assaulting a woman at Breezy’s house. On top all that, he’s dealing with charges from 2017 stemming from an alleged assault against a photographer. Now, he’s reportedly set to grill the man as he builds his case.

Chris Brown To Depose Florida Man Accusing Singer Of Assault: Report
Ser Baffo/Getty s

Bennie Vines is set to be deposed by Breezy on May 31st. The singer will question the man about the alleged assault in Tampa, FL that landed Breezy a felony battery charge. Vines, who said he was hired to take photos at the club, accused Brown aggressively trying to get him out his way. Vines said that he tried to explain to the singer that he was simply taking photos since it was his job but things escalated further and he claims Brown punched him in the lip.

Breezy left the nightclub but he was later charged for the alleged incident. He’s pleaded not guilty to the felony battery charge and his trial is scheduled for later this year.

We’ll keep you posted on any more updates on Brown’s legal situation. 

Azealia Banks Previews Extremely NSFW New Song

Azealia Banks was once regarded as one the leaders in a growing division female rappers. Her hit “212” and the way she meshed house music with hip-hop made her a force to be reckoned with. With so much potential and innovative creativity lodged in her mind, she seems to have dug a grave for herself based solely on her actions and her words. Rarely do we ever hear about Azealia’s musical efforts these days. If somebody brings her up, it’s likely to discuss the fact that she once claimed to sacrifice chickens in her closet. Or it might be for the rants she pulls daily on her social media channels. Or… you get the point. Today, she shared a preview one her new songs, which got people talking because the extremely suggestive subject matter.

Azealia Banks Previews Extremely NSFW New Song

The last time we heard Banks on record was when she dropped her single “Playhouse.” Last month, the song was released and much like this one, her lyrics were graphic. She spoke about her “playhouse” and about all kinds sex she wanted to have inside it. Now, she’s teasing two new tracks and them, one stands out as a raunchy display Azealia’s dirty thoughts. She raps: “Said you wanna be my boyfriend/But you better make me c*m/Got the pinkest p***y/And you know that p***y warm/I just wanna keep you hard/I don’t wanna miss a minute.”

The song has not yet been released but when it does, Azealia Banks stans around the world will rejoice. Is this a lane that you think Azealia can succeed in?

Toronto Raptors Gift Drake With Custom OVO Jacket Worth Half-A-Mil

Toronto, CANADA – While Toronto Raptors fans were celebrating a massive Game 4 hometown win over the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference Finals on Tuesday (May 21), it appears the game’s biggest winner was none other than the team ambassador Drake. The rapper was presented with a $550,000 custom OVO jacket by Raptors’ President, Masai Ujiri.

“We are so thrilled to have partnered with Garrison Bespoke to create this one-of-a-kind custom piece for [Drake],” wrote Diamond Foundry — who was responsible for icing out the jacket with 235 diamonds.

The jacket designer Garrison Bespoke notes that the inside of the jacket, which is the OVO crossover Jersey Drake himself designed, was made of fabric sourced from French mill House of Dormeuil’s private collection. It’s said to be one of the first examples of jersey cloth from the early 20th century.

Whether or not awarding Drake with such an opulent gift could ultimately jinx the team — as some fans have theorized — or perhaps keeping the league’s most A1 heckler’s energy up will remain to be seen in Milwaukee this Thursday (May 23) for Game 5.

"Game Of Thrones" Prequel Series Eyes Possible 2021 Release

Game Of Thrones has come to an end, but HBO aren’t quite ready to close the door on Westeros quite yet. As many fans already know, a GOT prequel series set during the “Age Of Heroes” is already in the production stages, once again returning to Belfast. As casting has already been confirmed, including Naomi Watts, Josh Whitehouse, Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sheila Atim, Ivanno Jeremiah and more, some have come to expected an unreasonably quick turnaround time; in reality, the fiends are simply jonesing for a return to the beloved fantasy realm, and who can blame them

"Game Of Thrones" Prequel Series Eyes Possible 2021 Release

Unfortunately, HBO programming president Casey Bloys spoke with Deadline about the upcoming prequel, putting any thoughts about a 2020 release to rest. “I have to get a sense from production when we see scripts for a season, how big and involved it is,” he explains. “Shooting a pilot in June and having it on the air a year later feels a little rushed, but it’s too soon to tell.” He also reveals that shooting will take place “in a couple weeks,” before pulling the plug on any potential Arya Stark spinf rumors – for now. “I think it’s best to try the prequels in other areas George’s massive universe,” he says. “It just feels like the right thing to do, let the show stand on its own.”

Will you be tuning into the upcoming prequel series, or did you ultimately pull a Snoop Dogg and leave Game Of Thrones on a sour note?

Keke Palmer Explains Why She Pulled A Post-And-Delete After Tweeting About Having Abortion

The Alabama abortion ban has prompted women from all around the United States to share their stories terminating their pregnancies. Actress Busy Philipps shared that she has had an abortion and tweeted that she wasn’t ashamed her choice. She used the hashtag “YouKnowMe,” and in a week thousands women have followed in the Philipps’ footsteps by revealing that they, too, have undergone the procedure.

Keke Palmer was one those women, tweeting that she had an abortion because “I was worried about my career responsibilities and afraid that I could not exist as both a career woman and mother.” The questions, criticisms, and coverage must have been too overwhelming for Palmer because she later deleted the post. However, she did explain why she decided to remove her story.

“Twitter is sometimes too flat and too short to express intimate sentiments,” Palmer explained. “Words without context, very annoying.” She continued, “I am disheartened about hearing the news in Alabama. I feel as if women rights laws are going backwards. Individual choice is being taken. I’m truly so confused at the world rn and the policies that follow. #YouKnowMe,” adding “Making individual choices is not a betrayal to your faith. Mainly, because God knows your heart and your journey. God never judges. I hate that it’s always a this vs that, instead an “I understand YOUR PERSPECTIVE.”
