Sorry for Big Brother’s inconvenience. We'll be back after the performance.

Common later admitted that Serena was indeed the fueling factor, saying, "So unfortunately the war might have been over a girl, but at the time I never said that."

    Drake was already seen as something of a religious figure in his city even before he introduced the "6 God" pseudonym, but now he's officially been acknowledged by a local church.In what can only be described as an attempt to appeal to youth, C3 Church Toronto has put up a Billboard that references Drake's new name for the city, reading; "For God So Loved The 6". They then get straight to the point in the fine print -- "God's love might be hard to understand, but you can certainly experience it."

    Although she passed away fourteen years ago at the all-too-young age of 22, Aaliyah still fervently burns like an R&B sun, atop the solar system of artists that she fuels and influences posthumously. Despite her age, her career lasted nearly a decade. Her sex appeal, style, and squad of collaborators, who are also mega-stars in their own right created the perfect storm to set pop music on a course that is still traveled by some of music’s best and brightest to this day.

    "My Way" may have been the Fetty Wap song Drake chose to bless with a guest verse earlier this year, but it might have more accurate if he had chosen "Again." He was just spotted making out with tennis star Serena Williams in a Cincinnati restaurant, and if you'll recall from his beef with Common a few years back, this wasn't his first encounter with her.

    OVO Radio was back for another installment Saturday evening, and this time it was Jordan Ullman, one half of OVO duo Majid Jordan, who took the hot seat. The show started with a lengthy set from OVO's resident tastemaker, Oliver El-Khatib, which featured music from ASAP Rocky, Ginuwine, Jai Paul, and an exclusive from Reekz & Section Boyz. Halfway through, Drake called in (using the heavy Scarborough accent we heard in his Jungle short film), explaining he's in the "cave" working on his album.

    In hip hop, one of the most important factors in determining an artist's legacy and greatness is still the album. Although some would argue that the medium is past its prime, debates about "legends" or even "best rappers alive" usually involve the artists' discography, which is why this latest Jay Electronica story is so hilarious. During a performance in London last night, the albumless wonder called himself "the God of hip hop" and sent shots at two artists in competition for that title, Drake and J. Cole.

    A Charlotte Radio Station Has Been Playing Nothing But Drake For The Last Two Days
    Aug 16, 2015 at 04:49pm
    A radio station in Charlotte may have taken Drake's "Back To Back" a little too seriously, as they've been playing Drake songs nonstop for the last couple of days. What was once said to be a gospel station has now adopted the name Drake 92.7, and so far, they haven't played one song that didn't at least feature the OVO star. It's not clear how long this will go on for, but the station has reportedly hinted that a "special announcement" will ve coming on Monday.  For now, you can tune in to the station, which strangely hasn't got old just yet.
