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.
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.
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.
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.
