    Sep 23, 2013 at 09:54am
    Drake's album is officially dropping tomorrow, September 24th. Nonetheless the early leak of Nothing Was The Same has given us all enough time to go through the album from start to finish, and properly digest all the lyrics, beats, and Drake-isms. Part of any good Drizzy album are the quotables-- and here we've gone through and found the most Drake-worthy ones-- you know, the type of shit that only Drake would say.

    Drake joined RapRadar's Elliott Wilson at NYU for his CRWN interview series earlier tonight, and while the footage of the hour long discussion has yet to surface, we've been able to piece together much the interview through the consistent live tweeting of press attendees.  Drake spoke of his rumored collaboration with the Wu-Tang clan, confirming that he had recorded a song with the group, and that it will see release soon. He also shared portions of a conversation he had with Ghostface Killah.

    DJ Khaled May Have A Track With Drake, Jay Z, Rick Ross & Future On "Suffering From Success"

    "No New Friends" was a pretty big first single for DJ Khaled, but it seems he might have something even more monstrous up his sleeve. According to ItsBizkit, Khaled has been (rightfully) bragging about a track he has with Drake, Jay Z, Rick Ross, and Future, which kind of sounds like the ultimate Khaled track. No confirmation on whether this is actually happening, but if it is, expect it sooner rather than later.

    Lyrics Of The Week: September 13-19
    Sep 20, 2013 at 06:30pm
    There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific bars are often overlooked (with the exception of Drake's poesy). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions. Keep in mind, these are the most noteworthy lyrics of the week, not necessarily the best. Also, it's hard to get everything right - if you notice any errors, don't hesitate to let us know in the comments section. Lines we're not quite sure about will be bolded.

    After the generous rollout for Nothing Was The Same, which gave us a great deal of free material, we were fairly sure (and perfectly happy with the fact) that the album leak would be the last of the new tracks we'd hear from Drake for a while. Turns out, on top of the project, we may be getting some new Hit-Boy-produced material from Drizzy in the near future.

    Drake is well known for his over-sharing verses when it comes to the women in his life. One of the names that came up on NWTS was "Courtney from Hooters on Peachtree," which was apparently enough information for the internet to find the girl he was talking about in a day. Another one of the women we've heard him mention (on top of starring in his "Find Your Love" video) is vixen Maliah Michel. Now we're putting the two Hotties side by side in a Vs. feature.

    Drake's new album, Nothing Was The Same, arrived into the hands of fans early when it sprung a leak on Sunday evening. This seems to be inevitable in this day and age, and Drake is aware of it. While discussing his sales expectations with MTV, in an interview that was obviously taped before the leak happened, Drizzy says, "more than September 24th, I'm just excited for whenever people get the music, cause obviously that'll, unfortunately, come out before the album drops."

    Drake shook up the internet as per usual when his track "Wu-Tang Forever" leaked. The record, which you'll receive with the pre-order of Nothing Was The Same, is produced by Noah '40' Shebib and samples Wu's "It's Yourz." A lot of comments in regards to the track have been mixed with confusion as well as hate, perhaps because Wu-Tang isn't the point of discussion in the record-- it's a Drizzy song straight up, as he discusses his girls and artistry.

    Jewelry problems and rappers seem to go hand-in-hand. The latest rapper to encounter legal trouble from his jeweler is Toronto native Drake.

The company, owned by designer Michael Raphael, claims in a new lawsuit that Drake hired them to make a custom diamond-studded platinum owl pendant back in January, and forked over $49,204 for it.

    A lot of rappers claim they were basketball studs and had more than simply ambitions to play pro or college, but say they had a real chance.  With his new album dropping in a couple weeks, Drake has been working on his game, and his jumper is looking surprisingly nice. You might recall, that in his youth, Drizzy portrayed Jimmy Brooks on “Degrassi,” a basketball superstar who was paralyzed after being shot, so we knew the Toronto rapper was no stranger to the court.
