OVO Sound Radio is back tonight with its 10th episode. The last episode was two weeks ago, on Halloween, and included a mini-mix from grime emcee Skepta and an extended mix from DJ Khaled.
Tonight's Halloween episode of OVO Sound Radio featured some special guests. As usual, Oliver El-Khatib started things off, but he was interrupted by a Londoner, Skepta, who showed up to drop a mini-mix that included three of his new remixes.
You knew OVO Sound Radio would come with some Halloween treats tonight, and, indeed, one of those included a surprise set from grime emcee Skepta, who dropped three new remixes during his mix.
Earlier this month, it was reported that Jas Prince, the son of Rap-A-Lot CEO James Prince, and the man who introduced Drake to Lil Wayne, was demanding that Cash Money Records pay him $11 million in royalties earned off the "Hotline Bling" star.
Drake is fairly generous when it comes to cosigns. The result of the Drizzy stamp of approval can be an OVO record deal, a remix, or, in the case of the Sauce Twinz, absolutely nothing.
At the beginning of the month, Drake revealed that the "Hotline Bling" video was on its way, and, today, he's confirmed via Instagram that said video will arrive tomorrow, on October 19.
The new episode of OVO Radio aired Saturday, and while it was hard to live up to the previous two shows (which debuted new music from Drake x Future and PartyNextDoor respectively), there were still some great moments.
Thanks to big co-signs from Drake and Kanye West, the U.S. finally seems to be ready to appreciate the UK's Skepta. Although his name has been entangled more closely with that of Drake's, Skepta isn't officially signed to OVO, more like an OVO-approved act.
Rich the Kid just announced that he and iLoveMakonnen have finished a mixtape together. The tape will be called Whip It Up, and it should be released in the near future.
Diamonds were a major theme of Drake and Future's recent joint album, What a Time to Be Alive. Diamonds adorned the Shutterstock cover art and were the subject of the tape's second biggest hit (currently at No. 53).
Louisville's Bryson Tiller came out of nowhere at the end of last year with his breakout hit, "Don't." The song began really blowing up this year, but not before Tiller had received cosigns from artists such as Drake and Timbaland.
It was gonna be tough to top last week's episode of OVO Sound Radio, when Drake premiered his joint album with Future, What a Time to Be Alive, but tonight's episode certainly gave episode 6 a run for its money.
Drake recently threw up a pic to Instagram of a hoodie and a cap, both a creamy pink hue and bearing the "1-800-HOTLINEBLING" seen on the track's cover art.
