7 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About iLoveMakonnen

Most of the world were just introduced to iLoveMakonnen last month when Drake hopped on his “Tuesday” song for the remix, and subsequently signed him to OVO Sound a few weeks later. He has quite the colorful background, though, with a jail stint for his best friend’s death, going to hair school, a little bit of bad blood with a popular producer and more! So, I compiled a list of 7 need-to-know facts about iLoveMakonnen below!

(Photos + Video) While You Were Sleeping, Machine Gun Kelly Brought Waka Flocka, Juvenile, Kid Ink & Over 6000 Fans To His Second Annual EST fEST

During the first weekend of this month, there were festivals galore. Some people were out in Chicago at Lollapalooza, others were north of the border at Caribana and/or OVO Fest…but there were also about 6500 fans, Waka Flocka, Juvenile, Kid Ink, Caked Up, Mod Sun, what would have been Nipsey Hussle (if he didn’t miss his flight, lol) and a ton of others camping out in the woods outside of Cleveland, Ohio for 2 full days at Machine Gun Kelly’s second annual EST Fest.

(Photos) So Drake Is STILL Using Rihanna’s Image For “Days In The East” Performance

During his OVO Fest set earlier this month, Drake caused headlines when his “Days In The East” performance included quick flashes of Rihanna on the screen behind him, emblazoned with fire and in between flashes of the letter ‘6.’ Originally thought by media to be a roundabout way of calling his former flame “evil” or the devil, Drake took to Twitter to clarify that the 6 was simply in homage to his forthcoming album, Views From The 6, and that he thinks Rihanna is “a good girl.” (The 6 references 416 – Toronto’s area code.) However, he never explained why Rihanna’s picture was there, but credible outlets reported that it was because he was “bitter” that she doesn’t want him back, and that afterward, “his friends called him out for the picture and Drake has since regretted his decision.” Seems like that’s a bit inaccurate!

(Video) Lil Wayne Brings Out 50 Cent At ‘Drake vs. Lil Wayne’ CT Stop [Full Performance]

Last night during the Hartford, CT stop of the ‘Drake vs. Lil Wayne’ tour, Weezy had a trick up his sleeve in an attempt to get the big ‘W’ for the night. In the midst of going hit-for-hit with Drake, Tune said he felt like hearing a throwback and as “In Da Club” started playing, 50 Cent hit the stage for a performance…much to the audience’s delight. Unfortunately, Wayne still lost last night. LOL! Check out the full performance below.

(Photos) So Sad! Ciara Calls Off Engagement With Future…..And His Alleged Sidechick PREGNANT?!

Oh the drama, the drama! After Tyga and Blac Chyna called off their engagement yesterday, Ciara has followed suit, ending her relationship with Future just 10 months after getting that ring in October of 2013, and a mere 3 months after the birth of their son, Future Zahir. (That baby’s name is going to be a fun daily reminder, huh?) These two met, became a couple, got pregnant and got engaged in less than a year, and he already had 3 children with 3 different women before Ci. Can’t say I’m surprised even remotely!

DJ Carisma Talks New Single “Anyway,” #YoungCalifornia, Her Top 5 Emerging Artists & More

DJ Carisma is changing the game…and in more ways than one. The married mommy of one [adooooorable daughter] has not only managed to be a key player in the resurgence of west coast’s hip-hop domination, but she’s done it as a female in a man’s world without being half-naked and using her looks as a crutch. In fact, you’re far more likely to catch the Power 106 DJ in a pair of kicks and a hoodie than you ever will in a dress and some heels, but I guarantee your favorite artist – from Chris Brown to Tyga to YG – will show Carisma a ton more love than you’ll ever see one of these “Instagram models” get. Fresh on the heels of releasing her debut single “Anyway” featuring Sage The Gemini, Tory Lanez, Eric Bellinger and Mishon, I hopped on the phone with Carisma to chop it up about everything from her forthcoming album (due out this fall on RPM MSC) to balancing being a mom with such a busy career, who she feels are the next big things coming out of the West and more. Hit the jump to find out everything you need to know on the woman Ty Dolla $ign couldn’t wait to show love to and that Nicki Minaj dubbed a “queen of radio.” Oh, and be on the lookout for the Young California x Young New York mixtape coming this month, presented by Carisma, Abby De La Rosa, DJ Amen, Dre Sinatra and…
