Drake Working On Lebron James Tribute Song

Drake is currently working on a Lebron James tribute single after the Cleveland Cavaliers star reached a milestone 30,000 points.

King James has been celebrating his achievement all week and the 6 God is catching some Lebron fever after delivering his new Scary Hours EP. Bron’s achievement has been echoing far and wide with a lot of his NBA peers congratulating him and even some folks from inside rap circles have been paying homage to the basketball legend. Drake is taking it a step further by recording a song specifically for Lebron James in honor of his 30,000 points milestone.

“Seems like every time we look up, you’re setting another milestone or breaking another record and I always tell you that you’re one of the most inspirational people in my life,” Drake said in a video posted on Twitter by Bron’s company Uninterrupted. “Every time you do something like this I always try to get in the studio and make the song that would go with the moment.”

Other rappers like JAY-Z, Nas, Diddy among others have also shared their reactions to his 30K points achievement. Drake then picked up the most expensive bottle of wine he could find in his house, a 1961 Petrus which retail for anywhere between $6,000-$25,000. Instead of drinking it he smashed it on the floor. The whole thing looked so fake you can see it in the video below. One thing that is very real in this situation is the song Drizzy is working on. He posted a video on his IG page of himself and his crew taking a studio break while sinking a shot from down town.

Drake also did a bit of history making himself this week when he smash Spotify and Apple Music single day streaming record and it was only from two songs on an EP. Imagine if it was an entire album, something tells me the 6 God is coming for them this year.

Drake Drop Two Tracks ‘Diplomatic Immunity’ and ‘God’s Plan’ [Stream]

Drake surprised his fans with two new songs “Diplomatic Immunity” and “God’s Plan.”

The 6 God came through on Friday night (January 19th) around midnight on the East Coast with two new fire singles. Before dropping the singles, Drake made a post on Instagram with what seems to be the title of his upcoming album or mixtape, Scary Hours. “Diplomatic Immunity” was produced by Nick Brongers and Boi-1da while “God’s Plan” was produced by Yung Exclusive, Boi-1da, Noah “40” Shebib, and Cardo.

Drizzy went after his haters on “Immunity” rapping, “Come at me and all you’ll get is the ballistic report, Booked a private room at Wiley’s, waiter twistin’ the cork, I got multi-colored rings like the Olympics, of course, At awards shows, cutting through the tension, of course.”

On “God’s Plan” he was a little calmer paying homage to his longtime friend and producer Noah “40” Shebib. “50 dub, I even got it tatted on me, 81, they’ll bring the crashers to the party, And you know me, Turn the 0-2 into the 0-3, Without 40, Oli, there would be no me, Imagine if I never meet the broski’s,” Drake raps.

Earlier this month, Drake shared a photo of himself in the studio while telling his fans that his just wrapped up an all-nighter. That post triggered a media frenzy surrounding his upcoming project. The Toronto rapper usually releases his projects towards the end of the first quarter of the year. So my guess here is he will release it sometime in March or April unless there are some unforeseen delays like what happened with More Life last year when he keeps changing the release date. Towards the end of More Life, Drake rap about taking a break from music leading us to believe that it would be some time before his next album arrives. That may not be the case after all.

Listen to both songs on Spotify and Apple Music.

Chance The Rapper Says Lil Wayne Is The Michael Jackson Of Rap Music

Chance The Rapper thinks that Lil Wayne is the Michael Jackson of rap music.

The Chicago emcee recently got into a Twitter row with some fans who claimed that he is the only independent artist to make it big and no other indie artists will ever get as big as he is. That assessment didn’t sit well with Chance who taste mainstream success over the last two years. The argument started over an article about the same topic involving a conversation between Apple Music’s Carl Chery and the hosts of Everyday Struggle where he spoke about the deal Chance the Rapper made with Apple to release his 2016 album The Coloring Book exclusively on Apple Music for two weeks.

Chery didn’t disclosed the full amount of the deal, but did say that Chance is a phenomenal artist with a great team around him. What really got the “No Problem” rapper angry was when some folks suggested that no other indie artist will reach the same height as he is. 2017 was a big year for artists signing major label deals. One fan on Twitter then asked him who is the Michael Jackson of rap.

“People jokingly say Em’s the Elvis of rap.. Well who’s the Michael Jackson of rap?,” the fan asked to which Chance responded saying, “Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. He been in this sh*t.” Dwayne Carter is Lil Wayne’s real name and comparing him to the great king of pop is far reaching given the heights that Michael Jackson reached in music.
