Earlier this year, it was confirmed that iLoveMakonnen was no longer signed to Drake’s OVO Sound label. The “Tuesday” singer released a statement thanking Drake and the whole crew for everything they’d done for him, assuring that there was nothing but love in the decision to separate. He was a little less amicable on social media, however. Via Snapchat, Makonnen joked that he was dropped from OVO because it stands for “Overweight Only” and he’d lost weight, while also acting like he couldn’t remember the name of “that dumb ass album with the sky sh*t,” aka Nothing Was The Same. He later assured fans it was just jokes and there’s nothing but love, but apparently Drake didn’t get that memo.
I can’t with this stuff lmao. Last night Drake won “Best Hip-Hop Video” for Hotline Bling and he was nowhere to be found (maybe bc Meek & Nick were present). But anyway, Puffy was there to present the award and wound up accepting on Drizzy’s behalf, saying Drake was simply “stuck in traffic”. The internet then went nuts and we’ve got the best reactions and memes after the jump.
So there’s this guy who goes around terrorizing the clothing brand Supreme’s customers, who are waiting in line for new merch. He does stuff like kick your bag, bully you, throw your hat to the ground and even fights you just because you like Supreme. And he does it all in the name of BAPE. Now the brand BAPE releases a statement saying they have no affiliation with this character.
Since July of 2010, Tyler, The Creator has been on Twitter under the infamous handle, @fucktyler. Of course, this isn’t the most family-friendly name, but as an artist who thrived off controversy and whose popularity reigned mainly on an underground level, this wasn’t much of a concern for the young rapper. Times have changed, however.
Over the weekend, Drake took the opportunity to throw more shots at Meek Mill, once in D.C. and then again in Meek’s own hometown of Philly. Some see it as sport and don’t feel bad for Meek because he started the beef, while others feel like Drake is taking it way too far (he did call him a “p*ssy,” after all,) and should let it go. Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg falls into the category of the latter.
Over the weekend, rumors started circulating that Ice Cube’s son, O’Shea Jackson Jr., would reprise his father’s role in a remake of his 90s classic, Friday, alongside comedian DC Young Fly. Because of both young actors’ resemblance to the original characters, memes suggesting the remake should happen have been circulating since O’Shea was introduced to the masses in last summer’s Straight Outta Compton. However, they seemed to become a reality when what appeared to be O’Shea’s official Facebook page posted this weekend that it was happening.
