(Video) dvsn Brings Out Drake & Majid Jordan At Special ‘September 5th’ Show In Houston

Last night, OVO Sound dvsn (comprised of singer Daniel Daley and producer Nineteen85,) put on their first headlining show in one of their OVO boss’ favorite cities, Houston. The date, September 5, was significant, as it is the same name as their debut project that was released earlier this year. Both Drake and Majid Jordan were surprise guests – which doesn’t come as much of a surprise, since everyone knew that Drake was in town for his Summer Sixteen tour stop the night before. Check out videos from the night below.


PartyNextDoor Is Back After Deleting His Twitter With A Cryptic Tweet

PartyNextDoor put out his long awaited P3 project this summer, but it got a lukewarm reception at best. In an interview with Rolling Stone last month, the OVO singer revealed that he wasn’t happy at all, particularly after giving Drake and Rihanna such a “moment” with the song “Work,” and not having one for himself.


(Photos) Did Drake & iLoveMakonnen Have A Bad Run-In This Weekend?

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.

Back in October, Drake debuted new ink on his shoulder. “bbk” stands as a dedication to UK rapper Skepta’s label, Boy Better Know, as the pair have gotten close in the last year or so. Now Skepta has returned the favor, tattooing the OVO owl on him. “From Toronto with solid bullet proof love,” he wrote with a photo of the tat. Check it out in the gallery.


(Video) Mike Zombie Talks New Project, OVO + More On Ebro In The Morning

Producer/rapper Mike Zombie will release his next solo project, Humble Genius, on July 1. In promotion of the album, the New Jersey native stopped by Ebro In The Morning this week. Most people know Mike for his production, as he had his breakout moment producing Drake’s “Started From The Bottom” and was immediately signed to OVO Sound. He went on to produce more hits, including DJ Khaled’s “They Don’t Love You No More” with French Montana, Jay Z and Meek Mill, plus Remy Ma on the remix – her first verse after being released from prison! Now Mike is both producing and rapping, and speaks to Ebro In The Morning about balancing both, his relationship with OVO, my stellar taste in music 🙂 and more!


dvsn Announces Tour Dates

Before he hits the road with Drake and Future on the Summer Sixteen Tour, dvsn will be embarking on his first-ever solo tour in June. The 11-date trek will hit Toronto, NYC and more, and tickets will go on sale this Friday, May 20. Check out the full of dates in the gallery. Will you be in attendance?


(Photo) iLoveMakonnen Announces That He’s Retiring

Seems like iLoveMakonnen is none too happy with his music career right now, and is reportedly going to leave the industry for good. However, this is the same guy who openly admits he’s on various drugs often, so this could simply be empty threats and/or high tweets. “If I could release music how I wanted I wouldn’t retire, but then if did that, so many would have to to just retire, so ill accept retire,” Makonnen – who recently left Drake’s label – tweeted over the weekend. He went on to say that he can’t deal with all of the fake in the music industry, but he did promise there will be a little more on the horizon from him, as he still has to fulfill some contractual obligations he’d previously committed to.


iLoveMakonnen Speaks On Drake “Diss”

Last week, it was confirmed that iLoveMakonnen was no longer signed to Drake‘s OVO Sound label. At press time, 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. It didn’t appear to be that way over the weekend, however. “What’s the name of that dumb ass album with the sky sh*t?” Makonnen said on Snapchat on Sunday, referring to Drake’s Nothing Was The Same. He then answered a fan’s question about leaving the label:

“Why’d you leave OVO because I was underweight now, when I was overweight they was f*cking with me, that’s what OVO stands for Overweight only.”


iLoveMakonnen Speaks On Split From OVO Sound

Yesterday, a rep for iLoveMakonnen confirmed the rumors that the singer was no longer with Drake‘s OVO Sound imprint. Many were speculating about what could have happened, and figured it was likely a less-than-amicable split. According to Makonnen, however, it’s all love.


iLoveMakonnen Is No Longer Signed To OVO Sound

Confirming rumors that have been floating around for some time now, a rep for iLoveMakonnen has revealed that he is no longer a part of Drake’s OVO Sound label. The September 2014 signing seemed off from the start, as Makonnen didn’t really seem to make much sense with the Toronto-based label, and it only seemed more off as time wore on and we rarely saw Drake and Makonnen together. It was last month that really sparked people’s desire to get to the bottom of things, however. Makonnen was noticeably absent from the OVO Sound showcase at SXSW – the same week he’d dropped a new album, which would make it the ample time to perform at such a show. Oh, and the label credited on the project? Only Warner Bros. Records Inc., where as his last two releases listed both Warner and OVO Sound. Sure enough, a rep has confirmed to Inverse that Makonnen is no longer with the label that Drizzy built.
