During his performance at KMEL Summer Jam in the Bay Area, Lil Wayne decided to make a very special announcement to the crowd. "I just signed a deal with my motherfucking idol, Jay Z," Wayne declared to cheering fans.  We've been watching Weezy's frustration with his Cash Money situation all year, and while we've heard nothing of a resolution between himself and mentor, Birdman, this is certainly good news, but raises more questions than answers.

Drake stays true to the three words he lent to Juvenile's Rich Gang single "Show Me Love." "I Show Love" is mantra he lives by when he's in the 6 and when he's on the road. Drake rarely mentioned his Canadian identity during the beginning of his career, setting himself apart from most city-repping, street-affiliated rappers.
