    Drake's been running his city for some time, and with that comes the responsibility of putting on an annual festival with some of the hottest rappers in the game, Drake included. With summer approaching, Drizzy took to twitter to reveal some of the guests that'll appear at the sixth annual OVO Fest, going down this summer in Toronto.

    This week we’re seeing a new entry with G-Unit’s The Beast Is G-Unit EP hitting the charts. Although it moved under 20k opening week, we doubt the Unit is too upset. 50 Cent had mentioned in a previous interview that the whole reason they kicked off their reunion with EPs was to relieve some of the pressure of dropping an album, and it not doing numbers—basically, it’s easier to start with EPs and work their way towards that album that’ll have a big opening week.

    Before Drake hit the big time, he was another rapper putting out mixtapes trying to get his music out there to the world. (Well, and a Canadian TV star, but that's kind of another story.) Drake released three mixtapes before getting mainstream recognition: Room for Improvement, Comeback Season and So Far Gone. The latter of which launched him in to the eyes of the world with the "Best I Ever Had" single. We all remember that one taking over airwaves and party playlists, right?

    Samples Of The Week: March 12

    After a week where Kanye West, Wale and Ludacris dropped off new tracks, we had fewer top-tier artists releasing material this week. Instead, some fan favorites returned from dry spells to bless us with new material, all of which was pretty dope. In this edition of Samples Of The Week, we look at flips by Freddie Gibbs, Flatbush Zombies and Curren$y. As always, some of these are very unexpected, some are obscure, and all are expertly executed. Read on to get the scoop.

    Top Tracks of The Week: March 3 - March 9

    Here it is, the once-a-week look at the tracks toward the top of our charts that you need to know about. Keep in mind that these tracks are culled from the very top of our Top 100 and, by their very nature, lean toward more popular artists. We still think these tracks are worthy of your attention, but if you need a look at artists you may have missed, take a look at Underrated Audio. With no outright superstars to talk about this week, our top tracks consisted of quite a few up-and-comers (and several familiar faces we haven't heard from in a while).

    We've already seen Madonna respond positively to Drake's use of her name on If You're Reading This It's Too Late, and now another celebrity who was name-dropped on the tape has piped up. Guy Fieri, who Drake calls a "magician" on "6 Man," caught up with First We Feast to share his thoughts on the name-drop.

    Madonna's name has been popping up in the hip-hop world more than usual lately. First, she put Chance The Rapper and Nas on her new album Rebel Heart, then she responded to Drake's new song "Madonna," saying that she loved the track. Now, she's revealed that she helped write a song on Kanye West's new album, and also says collabs with Drake are on the way.

    We'll be seeing a lot of Drake on Charts Don't Lie for the foreseeable future. The rapper dominated the Billboard 200 last week, and after getting bumped from #1 by Imagine Dragons' new album, he's sitting comfy at #2, moving over 150k in his second week. It's a difficult feat for most rappers to move that much their first week out, let alone their second week. The Toronto rapper also broke a Billboard record this past week (a record which he previously set, mind you), with every single song off If You're Reading This It's Too Late charting on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

    In recent months, The Beatles have popped up in hip-hop discussions thanks to Migos and Kanye West, but Drake is perhaps the only rapper who's currently competing with their run of dominance in the mid-to-late 1960s.

    Drake, if you're reading this... it's not too late. The king of kings himself, lord Kanye West, has offered his confidential expertise regarding sneaker design.While we all know 'Ye is fed up with Nike and he's now satisfied in his role with Adidas, helping Drake achieve greatness in the realm of sneakers (or elsewhere) is something he's into. During his BBC1 interview with Zane Lowe, Yeezy mentioned that he'd be willing to give Drake "confidential design advice on shoes he's doing over at that company."

    Over the weekend, on Charts Don't Lie, we saw how basically half of Drake's new project was charting on Billboard's Hot 100. That alone seemed to be quite the feat, but Drake's now taken that a step further with EVERY song off IYRTITL charting on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

    Drake and Chris Brown have had a weird relationship for a minute now. The two have had on-again-off-again beef, mainly over their respective on-again-off-again romances with Rihanna, but most recently, they've gotten into it over a pre-existing feud between Drake and Tyga. Chris wasn't really involved in the beef until a string of interviews over the weekend, where the singer made it clear that he's "not messing" with Drake, naturally taking Tyga's side (the two just recorded an album together, and are currently on tour).

    Collaborators Tyga and Chris Brown were guests on Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning, and things turned heated when they started discussing Drake. We're all aware that Breezy and Drake have had a tumultuous relationship in the past, however the two haven't been entangled in any beef for a minute (although Chris did call out Drake during his Karrueche rant the two months back).

    Obviously the biggest topic of this week's Charts is Drizzy Drake. The rapper utilized the surprise release tactic that we've seen several artists find success with over the last year or two, and it definitely paid off for him as well. His commercial mixtape dropped suddenly late last Thursday night, and with no other option for download apart from iTunes, Drake assured his loyal OVO fanbase would shell out the money for it. Then, in less than a week, the rapper managed to do numbers most mainstream artists dream of.

    Rappers seem to have a special affinity for the 56-year-old pop star Madonna. When asked about his "ultimate sexual fantasy" in a recent tumblr Q&A with fans, A$AP Rocky responded: "I JUST WANNA FUCK MADONNA OLD ASS B4 I DIE." Drake followed Rocky's lead, though less explicitly, by naming a song after her on his new mixtape If You're Reading This It's Too Late.

    Kanye West's highly anticipated interview with The Breakfast Club hit the web this morning, and at 57 minutes long, there's a lot of information and gems packed into it. During the conversation, Kanye touches on all his recent endeavors, from the Grammys, his dinner out with Taylor Swift, and his adidas sneaker launch. However it's towards the end of the interview that we get the really good information. First, when it comes to his upcoming untitled album, Kanye says that release dates are played out, so expect a surprise release from him.
