iLoveMakonnen's self-titled EP dropped earlier this summer, but it took a couple months to build hype, hitting its peak with Drake's co-sign and remix of "Tuesday". Drizzy has since signed the ATL rapper to his OVO Sound imprint, and it seems they'll be giving the EP a repackaged release.
Drake's OVO brand is growing by the day. Just a week after King Louie tattooed the label's owl logo on the side of his face and Drizzy opened the first ever OVO store in the heart of Toronto, the city's home basketball team is following suit.

Los Angeles-based Shlohmo, real name Henry Laufer, started making beats like most bedroom producers. Influenced by the infamous LA beat scene, his early music resembled the experimental Low End Theory style.
Drake will be heading to Australia for the very first time, and he'll be bringing special guest 2 Chainz along for the ride. After wrapping up his street fighter themed "Drake Vs. Lil Wayne" tour, he'll take a bit of a break before heading to Australia in February.
In the ongoing debate about whether or not Iggy Azalea is "hip hop," the judges at the American Music Awards have cast their vote as an overwhelming "yes." Beating out Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP 2, as well as Drake's Nothing Was The Same, Iggy's The New Classic took home the ceremony
Nicki Minaj has been heavy drumming up anticipation for her new album The Pinkprint. The YMCMB rapper dropped off a new single featuring Skylar Grey yesterday, "Bed of Lies," which follows up her big collabo "Only" with Drake, Lil Wayne and Chris Brown.
