    Drake's annual Houston Appreciation Weekend closed out last night, and while it's received some criticism from the local scene, Drake certainly garnered a warm reception at his final performance. Then again, the fans were given some extra incentive.During the show, Drake revealed that his Jungle Tour (of which last night's concert was the first date on) would also be something of a contest, adding that he would be surveying each of the audiences in Montreal, Chicago, Detroit and Houston.

    As many people noticed, Drake's Houston Appreciation Weekend line-up and appearances contained a surprising lack of Houston-bred artists. The South was represented by Lil Boosie, Bun B and more, however the H-Town reps were absent, apart from Kirko Bangz.

    Drake had a pretty big weekend, with his second annual Houston Appreciation event going down (on top of which, a few songs sprung a leak onto the web). We've already seen a few photos from HAW, and now we've got footage from Drake's inaugural "Jungle" tour show in H-town, which alludes to some Madge/Drizzy beef.

    For some reason or another, Drake has taken it upon himself to get the world to appreciate the city of Houston, a noble cause, no doubt. Though Houston residents didn't exactly name him their official Canadian ambassador, it's clear Drake and his OVO team put a lot of effort and resources into making Houston Appreciation Weekend a success.

    Charts Don't Lie: May 23

    This week saw the debut of Snoop Dogg's Pharrell-helmed funk opus, which had a pretty modest opening, placing at number 14. While Tech N9ne blew us away with his top 5 debut last week, he fell considerably this cycle, moving all the way down to number 20. As for the rest of the rap releases, almost everything has been slowly descending the charts incrementally. We're hoping to see another big album over the summer to breathe some life back into the rap charts, and possibly give Drake some competition in the race to be the first platinum rap album of 2015 (or 2014 for that matter).

    Last Thursday (May 21), a leak of Drake and Beyonce's "Can I" hit the Internet, instantaneously ramping up the hype for Views From the 6, though that was just the beginning.  Three more Drizzy leaks have found their way onto the web, two that could potentially be VFT6 material.

    If you grew up in Canada, the Much Music Video Awards are a big deal. Drake and The Weeknd, who both grew up in Toronto, likely spent their formative years watching the station, so they should be happy to hear they've earned a few nominations-- Abel leading the pack with 6. Other big Canadian acts like Arcade Fire, Grimes, Kiesza, and Majid Jordan have earned nods, while P. Reign and Tory Lanez will battle it out in the Hip-Hop Video Of The Year category. Check out the full list of noms below.

    As we reported on the other month, Drake's OVO Fest wasn't awarded government funding this year, although last year the organization, Celebrate Ontario, granted the annual music fest $300,000. However, OVO is still benefiting from the kindness of the Canadian governement.

    Another week, another fresh crop of songs raiding our Top Ten. Let’s get to it. 10) Omarion ft. DeJ Loaf, Trey Songz, Ty Dolla $ign and Rick Ross – Post To Be (Remix) This re-working of Omarion’s hit was smart enough to keep its most famous, meme-spawning line. And like that line, it’s hanging around for another week.

    Among all the stealthy disses on Drake's If You're Reading This It's Too Late, the one on "Used To" aimed at Diddy ("Real quick, man, you couldn't have hated that / Let's be real, nigga, you couldn't have made it that") was the most timely, coming mere weeks after the mogul allegedly slapped him over a Boi-1da beat.

    We saw two notable debuts on this week's charts, and they tell very different stories. The first comes from underground hero, Tech N9ne, who managed to have his biggest sales week ever, coming in at number 4. Meanwhile, Ciara, who has both a hit and major label backing, only earned a number 17 debut. Generally, we see artists with cult-like fanbases fall off pretty hard after their first couple of weeks, so CiCi may end up selling more in the long run, but Tech does seem to be something of a special case.Check out the full breakdown below.

    Last year Drake hosted the very first "Houston Appreciation Weekend" in his home away from home. The H-Town advocate is looking to make it an annual event it seems, as it was announced via press release that the second "Houston Appreciation Weekend (HAW)" is set to go down Memorial Day Weekend.

    Summer's almost here, and as the weather heats up, so does the music. More than any other season, we define summer by our favorite tunes, which usually coincide with our most memorable (or never to be remembered) moments of revelry.

    As far DJs go, there's no one who sells more music than DJ Khaled. Khaled Khaled (no typo) is far from just a DJ though. The Miami hip-hop magnate is the founder and CEO of We the Best Music Group, which includes artists like Ace Hood and dancehall superstar Movado, and the President of Def Jam South, which helped revive Def Jam as a whole toward the end of the '00s.

    After a relatively stable week, the top of the HNHH Top 100 became the Wild West once more. The week was dominated by newcomers (even if several of these are new takes on tracks we’ve all heard), with only a few stragglers holding on to top spots. 10) Belly ft. The Weeknd – Might Not Canadian rapper Belly proved that he’s willing to take a backseat on his own track with “Might Not.”

    Last week, tragedy struck the Internet as Jaden Smith's famous Twitter account famously disappeared. Whether he was telling us that "Most Trees Are Blue," or "If Newborn Babies Could Speak They Would Be The Most Intelligent Beings On Earth," the rapper/actor/prophet confirmed the absolute relativity of the universe spoken in the words of a moody teenager, in 140 characters or less (thank God).  Speaking of moody teenagers, Drake has released spouts of knowledge that have us feeling somewhere between the signature "6" *prayer hands* and *facepalm*. A few examples below.
