Drake's highly anticipated #VIEWS album has finally arrived!
Ever since Drake first announced the title to his fourth studio album Views From The 6 back in August of 2014, fans have been eagerly awaiting its arrival, causing anticipation & hype to grow to levels no other album has had to endure in the past, but now the time has finally come to see if the 6 God can deliver.
This morning, Birdman gave us a healthy dose of drama by pulling up and then quickly backing out of his interview with The Breakfast Club, all within the span of two minutes.
If you're a rap fan, there's no way you're not familiar with Metro Boomin's latest producer tag, "If Young Metro don't trust you they gon' shoot you," which has appeared both on Future and Drake's "Jumpman," and -- even more prominently -- on Kanye West's "Father Stretch My Hands Pt.
With all the anticipation surrounding Beyonce's "Lemonade" special on HBO, which was announced earlier this week, it was expected to be something spectacular. Those who just tuned in to the premiere got to witness a "visual album," with a bevy of new music to go along with the arresting acting, cinematography, and overall narrative.
Few albums have been more anticipated this year than Drake’s Views From the 6. The Toronto rapper takes a ton of pride and inspiration from his hometown, so we’re going to take you on a journey through our own Views From the 6.
Drake's Views From The 6 is set to drop any day now, and with that, comes leaks. Drizzy's sprung more than a few leaks in the past week or two, and today, he gets ahead of that by releasing two new records directly to iTunes/Apple Music, with no online stream available for us blog folk.
This is (part of) what we've all been waiting for. Drake has just tweeted out the official tracklist for his album, VIEWS, which will premiere on his OVO Sound Radio episode Thursday night, with online and in-store availability arriving the following day.
As you may have seen from the photo of Post Malone and a dreaded Justin Bieber that made the rounds last week, the Purpose tour got off to a weird start, and things only seem to be getting weirder.Yesterday, TMZ reported that Justin Bieber had mischievously ashed a cigarette on Post Malone while he was performing his hit, "White Iverson," at a Houston club.
Birdman's abrupt, tense, and most of all, hilarious sit-down with The Breakfast Club looks to be an early contender for the most viral interview of the year. The interview, which lasted for less than two minutes, was filmed and recorded on Thursday and went on the air as well as online on Friday morning.
Birdman's been trending heavily thanks to his unintentionally-hilarious "interview" with The Breakfast Club.
Young Thug's illuminating new profile in GQ confirms what we suspected all along: the man gives negative fucks. He burnished his DGAF reputation last night when, out of nowhere, he posted a picture of The Game's daughter to Instagram. “Such a cutie," he wrote. "Wish she was my kid!!”
We've seen artists fall victim to unsolicited selfies with people they've spent the night with before. Fairly recently, a sleeping Justin Bieber was photographed by an alleged hook-up, and today, it seemed Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd had suffered the same fate, but according to him, things aren't exactly as they appear.As Baller Alert points out, a woman by the name of Dorothy P.
At the beginning of the year, Meek Mill held a listening party for his Dreamchasers 4 mixtape, and an attendee was able to leak some footage from the event during which Meek can be heard rapping over Drake's "Back to Back," the second consecutive diss track the OVO boss sent Meek's way last summer. Dreamchasers 4 still hasn't arrived, though Meek has dropped off two separa
After reports circulating last night that it was highly probable Drake and Future would be teaming up for a "Summer Sixteen" tour, the full list of tour dates have arrived, acting as confirmation.
Drake postponed the previously scheduled episode of OVO Sound Radio last night, likely in an effort to let Beyonce hog all the spotlight as she shocked the world with Lemonade, her visual album that premiered on HBO. Tonight, however, it's Drake's night, and he's intent on reminding fans that this is the week in which his long-anticipated album, Views from the 6, is set to arrive.
Those who follow either Odell Beckham Jr. and Drake on Instagram will know that the two clean-cut gentleman -- with a similar affinity for workout-mode selfies -- are good friends.
Last night saw Waka Flocka returning to Seattle, land of legal marijuana and the city where Flocka once got confused for Richard Sherman by a Seahawks fan. The Turn Up Godz show appeared lit -- possibly too lit -- as Waka ended the night in the hands of paramedics after ingesting more weed than he could handle.
Young Thug and Charlamagne Tha God, who have sparred in the past, both have had eventful days.
For the past week, OVO has been setting up pop-up shops around surprise locations in the U.S. in support of Views from the 6. At each location, those in attendance have been given free Views apparel courtesy of OVO as well as Beats by Dre, which has sponsored each event.
Meek Mill is making it a tradition to drop new music at the same time as Drake.
UPDATE: The HNHH staff has continued to scour the web for the best memes inspired by Drake's VIEWS album cover. You can see all of those below.
The media has enjoyed pitting Desiigner against Future, though it's obvious the former is greatly influenced by the latter. Desiigner has responded to all those who consider him a Future knock-off with a troll-ish strategy that seems to only incite his detractors and make the FutureHive more angry.
Lil Wayne Recalls The Amount Jay Z Offered Him To Sign: "We Laugh About That All The Time" | 94,613 Views
Lil Wayne was vocal about his discussions with Jay Z leading up to the release of Tha Carter II in 2005, and while he's never gone into details about the offer, the Young Money rapper decided to tell the story of his conversation with Hov while on DJ Drama's radio show. Weezy seemed a bit hesitant to go into detail at first, consulting Mack Maine on whether he should do so.
Of course Drake was gonna do something sneaky with the VIEWS album artwork, which has already been meme'd more than any record cover in recent memory. There's a tool online that even lets fans take the Little Drake who originally appeared atop the CN Tower and make a new album cover using any photo of one's choosing (see our best efforts here).
With the clock striking midnight, Big Sean & Jhene Aiko’s newly-announced self-titled joint effort, TWENTY88, was just made available for purchase on iTunes.
Update: A UK representative for Universal Republic now tells FADER that the the art was meant to "tease the album release," and is "100% not the album artwork". The publication reports that this is the same source who initially told them the projection would reveal album art, which explains the misunderstanding. In other words, we're still waiting to see the official Views cover art.
With Drake's "Hotline Bling" recently becoming his biggest hit to date, the rapper seems to have mastered the art of the standalone single.
Anyone who's closely followed Drake and 40's process know that its always down to the wire when it comes album submission time.
Last week, Toronto rapper Mo-G, a member of the group Halal Gang, became the latest of Drake's behind-the-scenes collaborators to incite controversy, as he put up a series of since-deleted Instagram posts that accused the OVO rapper of swagger jacking and short-changing him for songwriting credits.
Birdman is making the most of his Breakfast Club squabble with Charlamagne tha God that his thrust him into the internet spotlight.
