Watch DJ Earworm's "United State Of Pop 2016" Mashup Video
DJ Earworm is back with the visceral comfort of his annual "United State of Pop" mashup of the year's biggest Billboard singles intermingled in a slideshow-esque pop orgy. Hip-hop is well represented in 2016 pop music, so HNHH readers should have a couple songs to root for in this year's mashup. Among the hip-hop songs involved are Rae Sremmurd's "Black Beatles," D.R.A.M. & Lil Yachty's "Broccoli," Drake's "One Dance," The Weeknd's "Starboy," and Desiigner's "Panda."

Drake Invites ESPN's Doris Burke Over For Dinner "As Long As She Comes Alone"
It's not secret that Drake is a big time fan of ESPN's Doris Burke and last night he made that point abundantly clear, sitting courtside in a crewneck featuring Doris' face that read "Woman Crush Everyday." Because it was Drake Night at the Air Canada Centre, EPSN's Israel Gutierrez sat down for a talk with Drizzy during the game and that's when he formally expressed his love for her and seized the opportunity to invite her over for dinner... "as long as she comes alone." Despite the overall creepiness of that message, DB accepted the invite.
Kevin Durant: "I Don't Give A Damn About No Drake Night"
After Golden State's 127-121 victory over the Toronto Raptors on "Drake Night," the guest of honor went out of his way to bump into Kevin Durant during KD's post game interview, which prompted a question about their trash talk throughout the game. Durant's answer was short and not so sweet: "I don't give a damn about no Drake Night." If looks could kill, we'd all be mourning the loss of Drake today after that death stare Durant shot him for interrupting his chat with Israel Gutierrez.

Drake Feat. 21 Savage

London On Da Track
Last month, on the night before his 30th birthday, Drake hosted a special episode of his label's bi-weekly Beats 1 radio show, and he used the occasion to announce a new project and premiere four new songs, three of which are set to appear on More Life, set to arrive in December. He began with the brooding, lyrical "Two Birds One Stone," on which he addressed all the controversies he's involved in, and then dropped a remix of "Wanna Know," a song by 17-year-old London rapper Dave. Then came something much harder: "Sneakin'," featuring the fearsome 21 Savage.
Future Feat. Drake "Used To This" Video
Future Feat. Drake
Typically when an artist releases a new song in visual form, we usually just post it as a song OR video and leave it at that, but when that artist happens to be Drake & Future, you best believe we’re posting it in both sections. On Friday morning, the Freebandz Gang leader decided to release a new single & accompanying video with the 6 God, Drake, called “Used To This,” which serves as the first offering from his Beast Mode 16 project with Zaytoven.
Sampha "Blood On Me" Video
With his debut album Process just around the corner, Sampha is about to break through as the full fledged star that the world has known he is for some time. As a tool of hype and creative engagement, the British singer has released the video for his latest single "Blood On Me." In the clip, Sampha navigates a surreal land of wheat fields and horse races. Not to ruin the clip's narrative, but Sampha ends with an eerie plant growing out of chest - definitely worth a watch just for that.
Drake "Childs Play" Video
It's been a fairly mundane evening in the rap world. Drake just changed that with the release of the first music video off his latest album, VIEWS, aside from last year's video to "Hotline Bling," a bonus track on the LP. As "Childs Play" finds Drake painting a detailed scene of a messy relationship reaching its breaking point at The Cheesecake Factory, one would expect the music video to be a highly entertaining piece of cinema. Indeed, the 12-minute clip, directed by Spiff TV, is just as much a short film as a music video.

Watch Drake Make A Half Court Shot While Lying Down On His Back

When he guested on Jimmy Fallon last night, participating in lip sync battle, he made sure to put the same unique spin on the songs. Rogen started things of by asking The Roots to play their classic record, "Mellow My Man," from Do you Want More, as he lip synced surprisingly well to Black Thought's live vocals.

Last night, Drake and Future's "Summer Sixteen" tour finally hit NYC. The duo have shows back-to-back there, but the first night has proved to be quite exciting, we'll have to see if the nights that follow stack up. Drake has dominated the conversation though, because of comments he made in response to Ebro recently telling the contents of their private/off-the-record conversation.
