    It's been a rough week for Chis Brown (actually more like a rough few years, but let's just focus on the most recent of his woes). Days after being dumped by Karrueche Tran, the R&B star's hopes of performing with Drake at Toronto's OVO Fest on Monday have been crushed, thanks to the criminal record that seemingly follows him everywhere.

Dot's time on stage, and now plenty of Instagram clips are circulating from Drizzy's time on stage.

    When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".

    Rappers are constantly quoting one another in songs. Sometimes it's enough to justify a writing credit, while other times its simply a subtle nod or easter egg to those who know the original source. Drake's verse on YG's "Who Do You Love" certainly falls into the latter category, though Rappin 4-Tay-- the emcee Drizzy interpolates on the verse --felt he should have been compensated.

    Although it's not too often you'll diss Drake and hear a reply from him, Drizzy decided that Wimbeldon tennis player Nick Kyrgios' slight shot at his music warranted a response. 19-year Nick Kyrgios, an Australian tennis player, created quite a bit of buzz for himself when he beat Rafa Nadal in the fourth round of Wimbledon. He almost lost said buzz when he had a poor start with his third-round opponent, Jiri Vesely (whom he did end up beating). During a post-match interview, Kyrgios lay the blame on none other than Drake's music.
