Meek Mill Flexes With Drake's OVO Chain In Series Of Photos

Earlier this yr, Drake introduced out Meek Mill throughout one his live shows to ficially squash their beef. It had been years for the reason that two had been going at one another’s necks however in spite of everything that Meek went via whereas combatting his unjust jail sentence, Drizzy determined it was time to let their feud dissipate. At one time, Meek vs. Drake was the most popular rivalry in rap with everyone clowning the Philadelphia rapper for taking an “L” within the battle. It’s all come full circle within the final yr with the 2 lastly embracing in September. Now, Meek is teasing a fair stronger bond between the 2 as he is flexing an OVO chain in his newest pictures.

It’s not unusual to see Meek rocking his Dreamchasers chain across the metropolis however an OVO chain? That’s new. Some followers seen the odd selection and pointed it out within the feedback. Quoting his mentor Rick Ross, the rapper wrote, “MY LIFE DEEPER THAN RAP THO.” Would you ever get used to Meek being a member OVO? It’ll most likely by no means occur however it will be fairly absurd. Especially if Meek retains popping up with OVO symbols, it might come to fruition.

San Francisco 49ers Apologize For Omitting Colin Kaepernick From Team Gallery

The San Francisco 49ers will face the Green Bay Packers on Monday evening within the lone matchup that day. To mark the event, the 49ers launched a photograph gallery celebrating the workforce’s historical past in opposition to Wisconsin rivals. Numerous gamers and workforce builders have been half the photograph presentation, save for one well-known 49er, the ever-controversial Colin Kaepernick who took common snaps for the workforce between 2012 and 2016. 

Soon after the discharge the photograph gallery, social media regulars have been fast to level out Kaepernick’s omission, resulting in an irrational blame sport inside the group. They have since fered their account the misunderstanding within the following assertion:

The 49ers who beforehand supported their quarterback in his determination to kneel whereas he was contracted member the squad, are pleading ignorance over his omission. When requested to touch upon the 49ers QB shuffle, coach Kyle Shanahan refuted claims Jimmy Garoppolo took usurped Kaepernick as a result of he was a greater match within the fense, nothing else.

Osheaga 2018: Travis Scott, BROCKHAMPTON, Post Malone & More

Festival season hasn’t slowed down just yet. This past weekend, if you were stateside, you could enjoy the four day line-up that is Lollapalooza, and if you ventured further north, you could enjoy the three day line-up that is Osheaga. There was some overlap between the two, in terms artists tapped — but all that means is that more fans got to enjoy more music — the more, the merrier.

Osheaga is becoming bigger and bigger each year, evidenced by the amount additions to the scope the festival– this year included amusement rides for anyone who wanted to get smashed and then go round and round on a swing, as well as various sponsored booths from everything from Trojan condoms to shoe-cleaning materials to a crazy Perrier-sponsored dance tent to yogurt brand Oikos (not sure what their booth was about, but they were outchea). Not to mention the abundance and choice in terms food tents/trucks this year. Lolla has always been a force in the ‘festival industry’ as it were, with roots dating back to the early ’90s, whereas Osheaga is still much younger, with its first festival back in 2006. Since that time, though, it’s not only managed to attract more sponsors but it’s managed to attract more and more genres, and more fans (from Canada and the U.S.-alike– it was evident from the amount Metro card/payment stumbling and general lack French words). While not an abundantly hip-hop heavy festival by nature, this year Osheaga ensured to have the perfect amount, and not to mention, the perfect names, for any hip-hop fan to satisfy their ticket purchase, regardless the day– each day had at least three worthy hip-hop acts to catch. Still, it’s unlikely to catch them all, to borrow a Pokemon catchphrase (?).

Travis Scott

Travis Scott was the first headliner on the main stage Friday night — regardless his performance, the hype was immediate and obvious, seeing as this was his first set upon release Astroworld. That being said, we had our first taste singles f the album IRL. The very quick fan-favorite “Sicko Mode” made the cut, as well the second track on the album, “Carousel.” Restrictions were in place for his set, but if you want to get an idea the type insanity that a Travis Scott set allows for, watch Montreality’s footage below.

As it happens with a lot rap shows these days, a mosh pit is to be expected — however it’s a little different when it’s literally an entire sea festival goers that are moshing, and it’s not relegated to a small closed-f corner in the front the stage. It’s intimidating to watch, let alone be apart . However it’s all the pro you need that fans were beyond pleased with his album-release-day set. A backtrack is seemingly inevitable with a rap concert these days as well — and while I despise it, Travis handled his own well, ensuring he properly rapped along, and perhaps more importantly, rapped louder, than the backing track. I can’t say as much for Smokepurpp.


Smokepurpp was allocated a smaller stage, with a performance that was timed hours before Travis. I cannot say that his fans weren’t satisfied with his set — the crowd he drew was substantial, to be sure, and college-bro-y — however as an onlooker, not necessarily attached to the music either way, it was a jumble. He dedicated a song to fallen friend XXXTentacion, which is common enough fare for his sets these days. He also randomly enough played a Kids See Ghost song. He played some his own music too (“Bless Yo Trap,” “Do Not Disturb” and “Nephew” made the cut), but that was the issue basically — it was like a DJ set, complete with Smokepurpp ad-libs and jumping. Smokepurpp acted as a hypeman and rapper to his own music, punching in lyrics here and there.

Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals

While punching in your rap set is definitely becoming more common, there are artists who do still rely more on their live vocals than anything else. Of course, as a singer, Anderson .Paak is among them. He brought along his band The Free Nationals for a Saturday night performance, also one the last acts that night, and a highlight the weekend. Not only did the raspy-voiced singer bring an energy like that in his song “Bubblin” across the stage/for the entire set (he performed that song too!), his Free Nationals band did some dope cover work, surprising the audience with their take on some vintage Dr. Dre, rightly so as one .Paak’s mentors, and some good ol’ Ginuwine (“Pony,” duh). 

Post Malone

Post Malone helped close out Sunday night, making for a headliner and a highlight. Although it seems like he pulled similar tricks at his Lolla set– smashing a guitar is a common and somehow endearing trope for Posty — it doesn’t take away from the genuineness his Osheaga set. He came to rep Canada too, rocking maple leaf-branded Beerbongs & Bentleys attire, as well as Canadian flag patches on both knees. So we know it’s real. Sometimes you just wanna hear an artist’s best singles/biggest hits, and ten times, that’s what festivals do best for a listener. Indeed, that’s what Post did, taking fans through his catalog in a non-chronological manner, including records like “Pyscho,” “Stay,” “Rockstar,” “White Iverson” and “Congratulations.” 


I cannot complete this without mentioning BROCKHAMPTON. They also helped close out the Sunday festivities, although at a smaller stage on the festival grounds. Still, with the type show they put on, and the type crowd they drew, they are fast approaching mainstream/headlining calibre. In true boy band form, they had synchronized dance moves and matching outfits on deck, making good use the artificial grass stage. Among the songs the animated crew performed, we got to hear “Rental” and “Queer” live. 

Peep photos from a few artists across the weekend in the gallery above, including BROCKHAMPTON, NAV, Killy, Smokepurpp and Tyler, the Creator. Until next year.
