    Tyga took us by surprise with his brutally honest interview about his Young Money camp. The rapper recently expressed that he wasn't getting along with YMCMB when he went on a Twitter rant about the label, saying they were holding him "hostage." He exposed his dissatisfaction once more when talking to VIBE about his label situation and his new album The Gold Album.

    Everyone who's ever played basketball has shot an air ball at some point, but only those whose wild misses are caught on camera face the consequences. Drake, who has alleged in the past that he's "Steph Curry with the shot," is one of them, and he's currently serving as the butt of jokes across the country for his much-publicized whiff while on the court with the Kentucky Wildcats.

    PARTYNEXTDOOR kicked off his "PND Live" tour with a bang tonight in Montreal, Canada, bringing out his OVO Sound label boss Drake for a live performance of "Recognize," the duo's acclaimed collaboration from PARTYNEXTDOOR 2. Instagrammers at the show were quick to upload videos of the performance to the web. A video of the full performance, meanwhile, is probably still a short ways away. The 14-date North American tour continues through October, ending November 22 in Los Angeles. Tickets are available now via PND's official website.

    The last we heard a solo cut from Drizzy was back in June when he went from 0 to 100 real quick over an iconic instrumental from Boi-1da, 40, and Nineteen85. Today, YMCMB's golden child returns with "How About Now," a fresh drop uncovered by those computer savvy hip-hop heads over at Reddit. The track is speculated to appear on Drake's upcoming Views From The 6, although it seems just as likely to be a leftover from Nothing Was The Same.

    Drake’s continued support for his favorite basketball team, the Kentucky Wildcats, carried into Friday night when he was invited to the team’s annual Midnight Madness event at Rupp Arena. Suiting up with the players, Drizzy was able to show off his basketball skills Friday night and jump in line for some pregame warm ups. The results? Not so good. The OVO crooner aired a three-pointer and didn’t look good doing it either. He did however lighten the mood up when we was introducing the players and coaches and pulled out the infamous lint roller for a good laugh (see below).

    The American Music Awards generally isn't a heavily rap-oriented awards show, however, the big wigs in hip hop generally do get a nod, and this year is no exception. Drake and Eminem earned multiple nominations, but Iggy Azalea, Beyonce, John legend and Pharrell showed up in the most categories.Iggy, Drake, and Em will battle it out in both the Favorite Artist (Rap/Hip-Hop) and Favorite Album (Rap/Hip-Hop) categories. Chris Brown, Jhene Aiko, and Mary J. Blige also earned noms. Check out the full list of nominees below. Who will clean up at the AMAs?

    While Drake is still under investigation for allegedly threatening a stripper earlier this week, now it appears another woman is out making similar claims. Shaye G, an internet model with whom Drake was allegedly linked to while he was dating Rihanna, reportedly called the cops after Drake sent her some angry text messages last weekend.

    Drake doesn't come across as the type who might threaten a lady he had relations with, he's more so known for writing a song about a love conquest. However, in headlines today, a Houston stripper by the name of Jhonni Blaze has accused Drizzy and his team of threatening her life following a sexual encounter she had with the Toronto rapper.

    This week's search for a remix had us stumbling upon this Chi Duly version of everyone's latest jam stuck on repeat, "Club Goin' Up On A Tuesday," by ILoveMakonnen (most likely the Drake-remixed version).

    Last September, right around the time when Drake's acclaimed album Nothing Was The Same was dropping, Wu-Tang Clan's U-God announced that he and his crew had recorded a remix of Drizzy's track "Wu-Tang Forever." A year has passed, and we still have no sign of that posse cut, so what happened?

    Top 10: Hood Grammys Drake Forgot
    Oct 6, 2014 at 06:02pm
    As you probably heard last night, Drake started yet another trend with his #HoodGrammys on Instagram. That's all well and good, but he only announced 5 awards, and to be honest there was a slight OVO-family bias with some of them (PARTYNEXTDOOR with mixtape of the year? Bruh.) So we've decided to use this week's Top 10 instalment fill in all the missing categories.

    Drake gave us one of the most iconic rap Grammy moments of all time a few years back, and it didn't even take place at the Grammys. In a flex that will last the ages, Drizzy filmed himself (and his OVO buddies) taking shots from his trophy after it arrived in the mail.

    Drake still may still be looking for a Hot 100 number one as a lead artist, but his sheer number of entries to the chart is nothing to scoff at. In fact, this week it saw him passing one of the biggest and most respected musical acts of all time. That's right, Drizzy now has more Hot 100 singles than The Beatles.

    SBTRKT took the world by storm with his first LP. Released at the base of the alternative R&B explosion, the album perfectly blended dance music and soul, even catching the eye of Drake and inspiring him to drop a verse on "Wildfire," which in turn became more popular than the original (but that's every day for Drake). How will SBTRKT's second album stack up to the first one? Let's take a look...

    Few names have taken the hip-hop world by storm like ILoveMakonnen has in the last few months. A buzz-worthy mixtape artist came to mainstream fame after signing to Drake's OVO Sound label, along with having Drizzy blessing his single "Tuesday" with a verse. ILoveMakonnen's career hasn't been the same since, and Tuesdays at the club have been going up ever since.

    Last night, the "Drake Vs. Lil Wayne" tour concluded in Houston, with the pair of star rappers ending their summer-long, Street Fighter-inspired battle in a tie. After announcing that he and his YMCMB mentor had come up even at the end of the several-months-long tour, Drizzy gave fans who missed out on these dates a little bit of hope in the form of hinting at a "Drake Vs. Lil Wayne" round two.

    Today, a "posse cut" is more or less a marketing scheme. For a record label, what easier way is there to sell a single than by getting all of the biggest artists of the time and putting them on one song? It's like The Avengers for rap fans! For this list, we attempt to illustrate the evolution of hip-hop's sound over time. Beginning in the late 1980s and carry through to today, the posse cuts found here are presented in chronological order for direct comparison to songs of rap music's past.
