This past weekend “OVO Sound Radio” was born, Drake’s show on Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio station. Drake played three new remixes during the program, adding verses to Wizkid’s “Ojuelegba”, Ramriddlz’s “Sweeterman”, and Roy Wood$’s “Drama”. Now, you can listen to official audio of his “Ojuelegba” remix, which also features Skepta. Ceck it out after the jump.
So this happened. Drake has released the first video for a single from his If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late album. And it’s no surprise that the song is “Energy,” a track when put on people instantly sing along. But the video is a tad bit, well, strange? Don’t get me wrong, I love when hip hop keeps it weird and funky. But I don’t what it is about the video for “Energy” that is really cringeworthy. Is it Drake strutting around in front of a white background? Is it all these random shots of equally random people? Or is it perhaps Drake being CGI’ed as Oprah, Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, and even Barack Obama? Nothing wrong with drag or impersonations but these are just so poorly done and are genuinely freaking me out. Pitchfork called the video “unbelievable” and I pray they’re referring to how absurd it is. Anyway, you be the judge. Check out Drake’s “Energy” video after the jump.
Meek Mill season has officially arrived, you thirsty bastards! Just kidding, but I’m sure you know the new Meek, Dreams Worth More Than Money, is out now. One of the album’s most hyped up track by fans is “R.I.CO.” as it’s a collaboration between some of the hottest rappers in the game: Meek Mill and Drake. It’s also produced by the great and always reliable Vinylz so that’s definitely an added bonus. Anyway, I won’t talk your head off–check out “R.I.C.O.” after the jump.
Drake and The Game link up for “100,” a track which finds the two rappers addressing their haters, the lames and even fakes. The track is produced by Cardo and Johnny Juliano. Check out “100” after the jump.

Last night was a monumental moment for hip-hop as Drake headlined the final night of Coachella’s opening weekend. During his performance he busted out a few songs from his surprise new album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. The biggest (and most bizarre) moment of his set came midway through, when Madonna made a surprise appearance. After a brief performance of “Human Nature” and “Hung Up” she circled around Drizzy, leaned down, and initiated a long, kiss. After a few seconds, she uttered her latest catchphrase “B**ch, I’m Madonna” – and sauntered offstage. Watch the entire performance after the jump. It’s a doozy.
Styles P just can’t stop giving. I guess the “P” stands for Presents because this man has all the gifts, even when you’re least expecting ’em. After dropping some serious gems a week back with “Still Bangin'” and “Don’t Fade Em” P returns with a remix of Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late cut “Energy.” Check it out after the jump.
In a recent interview with French media outlet Clique TV, Kanye West discussed many of his usual talking points; race, class, fashion, corporations, Drake, the state of pop and rap music, the quality of North West’s toys, etc. As usual, it’s worth a listen. It’s over a half hour, so go make yourself a sandwich and sit back comfortably. Check out the full interview after the jump.
