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.
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.
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.
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!!”
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
Anyone who's closely followed Drake and 40's process know that its always down to the wire when it comes album submission time.
It was thought that 50 Cent had two sons, each with different mothers. His son Marquise Jackson, with whom he is estranged, is 18 years old, and he also has a young son who frequently appears on his Instagram. A couple of hours ago, 50 logged onto his IG to reveal that he recently met his third son, a boy named Davian.

Beyoncé's LEMONADE was the event it promised to be, delivering on the musical and visual side of things, but also supplying some big surprises -- namely, more or less confirming rumors that Bey's husband, Jay Z, had cheated on her.
Birdman is making the most of his Breakfast Club squabble with Charlamagne tha God that his thrust him into the internet spotlight.
Charlamagne has received another shipment of bottles, this time courtesy of Ricky Rozay. At the end of July, after avowing do so on "Back to Back," Drake sent a peace offering to Charlamagne in the form of six bottles of Dom Pérignon.
Beyonce's new album, Lemonade, is now available on Tidal, though one shouldn't cop the album without watching the film of the same name that preceded its release. Tabbed as a "visual album," "Lemonade" plays out as one abstract but narrative-driven film, just under an hour in runtime.
It's the calm before the storm, as VIEWS is finally set to hit the airwaves tonight at 10 p.m. EST on OVO Sound Radio. Drake has been slowly and mysteriously providing fans with more details regarding the imminent release, and he has just shared a new trailer for VIEWS, featuring some new sounds that could very well be taken from the album.
Drake has been promoting a very special episode of OVO Sound Radio on Apple Music. We already knew the episode would include an in-depth interview with Zane Lowe, but little did we knew it would actually serve as the premiere platform for the entire VIEWS album (which apparently 40 just finished up the other day).
Everybody knows that there's a curious likeness between Future and 18-year-old Brooklyn rapper Desiigner. Most listeners immediately hear hints of Future in Desiigner's voice, though legendary Atlanta producer Jermaine Dupri recently discovered that the similarities may not end there.
It takes a village to raise a child, and sometimes, it takes a village to write a hit song.
Young Thug and Charlamagne Tha God, who have sparred in the past, both have had eventful days.
We knew Young Thug was something of an oddball. A new in-depth profile in GQ elucidates Thug's various eccentricities, and it appears that he is even weirder than we thought. Here are few standout details:
iLoveMakonnen made his departure from OVO appear amicable in an official statement released last week. "I cannot thank OVO, 40, Oliver, Future & Mr. Morgan, enough for all that they have done for my career," he wrote. "Sorry there’s no beef to report."
Kid Cudi's Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven was a divisive project, but his contributions to Kanye West's The Life Of Pablo have been one of the most universally praised aspects of the album. While it's difficult to imagine the album without his presence, Cudder has explained in an interview with Billboard that his exhilarating hook on "Father Stretch My Hands Pt.
Yesterday (Apr. 22), a day after Prince was found dead in his Minnesota estate, an autopsy was conducted to determine the cause of death. A spokeswoman for the Medical Examiner's Officer in Ramsey, Minnesota, where the autopsy took place, has stated that it could be "days or weeks" until the results of the autopsy are known and released to the public, reports CNN.

It's safe to say The Game is not a fan of Stevie J. Earlier today, the Compton rapper had some choice words to say about the Love & Hip-Hop reality star, following comments Stevie made about a picture that The Game took with his ex-girlfriend Joseline.
In case you missed it, Drake & Zane Lowe were originally supposed to kick off Thursday night’s #VIEWS festivities by sitting down for a “major” interview on OVO Sound Radio Ep. 20 at 10:45 PM EST, where Drizzy would premiere his new album for the first live on air, before making it live on iTunes following the show at midnight.
