OVO co-founder Oliver El-Khatib kicked things off on tonight's episode of OVO Sound Radio, and he used his set to introduce a newly freed OVO affiliate and member of the Reps Up family, Baka AKA Not Nice.
Today we’ve got a release from up north. Toronto to be exact. Getting the requisite OVO-affiliate label, TRIPSIXX gives us songs that are equal parts Travi$ Scott, Bryson Tiller, and Young Thug, while still sounding like his own artist.
As we near Christmas, things slow down both in the real world and online. Even these e-streets. That being said, we'd probably post this news regardless of whether or not it was slow, so yeah, there's that.
Soon after releasing his second EP, ILoveMakonnen 2, Makonnen is the focus of an in-depth interview with FADER on how his life has changed since his breakout hit, "Tuesday," earned him instant stardom, a Drake remix, and a deal with OVO.
Majid Jordan made their return a few days ago with the new single "Something About You." The song served as the first official single from the duo's debut album, although it came with little information about the debut.
Last night, Makonnen dropped off ILoveMakonnen 2, the sequel to his debut EP released in July 2014. Makonnen's new material is a turn away from the pop sound of "Tuesday," or anything else you might expect to hear on an OVO release.
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.
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.
