NEWS: Toronto City By-Laws Say Drake’s New Mansion Will Be Too Big! [KingpinTV.net]

Drake’s 21,000 square-foot mega-mansion will include a basketball court, spa, and jersey museum.

From a shout-out with his last album’s artwork and (initial) title to acting as the Toronto Raptor’s global ambassador, Drake has been recognized as a vocal supporter of his home city.

Still, because people have to bitch about something, the “what’s up with that?” contingent has taken pains to point out Champagne Papi seems to spend most of his time at his palatial California mansion.

Well, they can prepare to eat crow, because Aubrey’s bringing his fine-living ways back home and building a Toronto mansion that’s literally too big for the neighbourhood.

NEWS: Drake Gets $300,000 In Government Money For His OVO Fest! [KingpinTV.net]

In its first three years, Drake’s OVO Fest can only be described as a monumental success, and evidently, the Ontario government agrees. Yesterday, Global News reported that the two-day festival was awarded a $300,000 tourism grant. People weren’t impressed. At first glance, giving a millionaire rapper that much of tax payers’ money seems absurd, especially given the Continue reading

NEWS: Drake’s Posthumous Aaliyah Album Has Been Called Off Indefinitely! [KingpinTV.net]

Producer Noah “40” Shebib has called off the posthumous Aaliyah album he had been working on with Drake. In an interview with Vibe, Shebib said, “The world reacting to Drake’s involvement so negatively, I just wanted nothing to do with it. . . Ultimately, I wasn’t comfortable and didn’t like the stigma.”

Drake announced the album in August 2012, when he released “Enough Said,” a track that featured his voice alongside that of the R&B singer Aaliyah Haughton, who died in a plane crash at the age of 22 in 2001. A few days later, Aaliyah’s family distanced themselves from the album. Her brother, Rashad Haughton, said at the time, “There is no official album being released and supported by the Haughton family.”

Shortly after that, longtime Aaliyah collaborators Timbaland and Missy Elliott said that they were not participating in the album’s production. Instead, Blackground Records – a label run by Aaliyah’s uncle and cousin, Barry and Jomo Hankerson – announced the album would consist of 16 unreleased tracks and “fragments” that would be produced by Drake and Shebib. At the time, the label said the record would come out by the end of 2012.

But while those announcements made it sound like the album was conceived as a collaboration between Drake and Shebib, the producer is now saying that wasn’t the case. “Aaliyah’s label Blackground – the Hankersons, her uncle and cousin – came to me and said if she was around, she’d want you to do this project,” Shebib told Vibe. “I’ve been obsessed with Aaliyah forever, and I know Drake has his relationship with her. But that opportunity was mine. Drake said, ‘Can I do it with you?’ And I was like, ‘Of course, we’ll do it together.'”

The negative attention directed at the project, including Timbaland’s statement, ultimately turned the producer off the project. “That was a very sad experience for me,” Shebib said. “I was naïve to the politics surrounding Aaliyah’s legacy and a bit ignorant to Timbaland’s relationship and everybody else involved and how they’d feel. Tim said to me, ‘Don’t stop. Make the album.’ I think that was Tim taking the position of, ‘I’m not going to stop you. If you’re not going to do it, that’s your decision.'”

But Shebib said that the real reason he abandoned the project was that he received criticism from someone even closer to Aaliyah. “We released [‘Enough Said’], but I was seven songs deep,” the producer said. “[Aaliyah’s] mother saying, ‘I don’t want this out,’ was enough for me. I walked away very quickly.”

A month ago, Drake posted an Instagram video that featured Aaliyah music. But as the Guardian points out, Drake said “things went downhill with [the project]” in an interview at NYU’s Skirball Center last September.

Blackground has yet to comment on whether another producer will take on the project. But last June, an artist Drake is not close toChris Brown, released his own Aaliyah duet, “Don’t Think They Know” on his album XThe video featured an actor who looked a lot like Drake.

The Mirror says the 31-year-old Defoe has been offered a deal worth £90,000 a week (C$155,310) as well as unlimited flights for him and his family.

NEWS: Drake On The Cover Of XXL’s 150th Issue! [KingpinTV.net]

Drake_150

XXL celebrates a very special issue this month: It’s the magazine’s 150th and  16th anniversary issue and Drake’s first solo cover. Yeah, it’s a big deal, and this is a great issue. It’s been 16 years since Jay Z and Master P both graced split covers of the first XXL. This month’s cover subject, Drake, was just 10 years old. Fast forward to 2013 and he’s one of the biggest rappers in hip-hop. And he’s currently prepping the release of his in-demand third album, Nothing Was The Same (Young Money/Cash Money/Universal) for September 17.

Discussing everything from his new album and his relationships with other rappers and celebrities to his return to acting and his overall success, the Toronto MC was open and honest with writer Thomas Golianopoulos during their two-hour interview. Here are a few quotes from the exclusive interview.

ON THE NEW ALBUM
I remember coming into this year thinking, “How am I going to cut through all these people and shine?” I’ve never been part of a year when so many legends are dropping projects. How am I going to be seen? I’m going to be like the kid waving in the background in the photo with all of his tall relatives. And, I guess, those were my initial thoughts, and not to say that I haven’t enjoyed some of the stuff that has come out this year, but it didn’t pan out the way I thought it was going to. I think I am going for it, to really establish what are murmurs or things being said quietly, “Um, I think that Drake might actually…” On September 17th I want people to be like, “Oh, we were right.”

ON HIS IMAGE
Do I think that if I didn’t have, for lack of a better term, a unique look about me, if I was from somewhere in America and if I hadn’t been on a kids TV show [Degrassi: The Next Generation], would I be as famous? I don’t know, man. Honestly, I don’t think so. I was just some young kid on a TV show. And I haven’t become anything else while I’ve been in this position. It’s not like I got here and was like, “Oh, got to switch up my image.” I don’t wake up nervous. I feel like maybe a lot of these guys do. How old are you, really? What is your background, really? What have you really done in the drug game, in the thug game?

ON THE COMPETITION
It’s tough for me. That’s a guy I can’t pretend not to like. He’s the guy to me, in a lot of ways. That’s Kanye West. But I’m also here to be the best. I’m here to surpass. I’m here to outdo. I’m ready for whatever with anybody.

ON HIS SUCCESS
I get Jewish people coming up to me proud like, “Mazel Tov, bro. Come to my house for Shabbat dinner.”

AMANDA BYNES
I don’t even know who that is doing that or what that’s about. If that is her, I guess it’s a little weird and disturbing. It’s obviously a behavioral pattern that is way bigger than me. Whoever is behind it, whether it’s her or somebody else, they know people are paying attention so they keep it going.

Also in the magazine this month, XXL honors the 150th issue with the ultimate list of the 150 most important people, places and things in hip-hop during the XXL era. And keeping with the birthday theme, many important albums are celebrating special anniversaries this year. In honor of those critically acclaimed LPs, XXL had some of today’s most popular MCs review them. Kendrick Lamar talks Snoop Dogg’s Doggystyle, which turns 20 this year. Nas looks back at Lauryn Hill’s The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill, which turns 15. And B.o.B. discusses the OutKast decade-old opus,Speakerboxxx/The Love Below plus many more in the magazine and on XXLMag.com.

The 150th and 16th anniversary issue of XXL is jam-packed with good stuff and hits stands August 20.

VIDEO: Drake – “Started From The Bottom” [KingpinTV*net]

Drake couldn’t have picked a better time to celebrate success: He released a video for his new song “Started From the Bottom” last night to coincide with his first Grammy win, in Best Rap Album, for his 2011 release Take Care.

“Started From the Bottom” is the first track the Canadian singer and rapper has released from his upcoming album, Nothing Was the Same. The clip finds Drake bouncing in a white convertible in a blizzard, kicking back in a private jet and receiving a coveted promotion at work, where’s there’s a interlude while his friends hit on a customer in a low-cut top.

It’s the second time Drake has collaborated on a video with Director X; they also worked together on his “HYFR” clip, which won Best Hip-Hop Video at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards. Drake is recording Nothing Was the Same in Toronto and Los Angeles with producer Noah “40” Shebib. The album, his third, is due this summer.

NEWS: Drake Wants A Check For YOLO Merchandise In Walgreens And Macy’s! [KingpinTV*net]

With his Take Care hit “The Motto,” Drake made YOLO (you only live once) possibly the most pervasive tagline of the past 12 months. And now that the acronym is popping up on merchandise everywhere, Drake thinks he’s entitled to a paycheck.

On Christmas Eve, the Toronto rapper posted a couple of photographs, one taken at a Walgreens store and another at Macy’s, both showing merchandise stamped with “YOLO.”
Under the image from Walgreens, which shows a stack of colorful caps being sold for six bucks a pop, Drake wrote, “Walgreens … you gotta either chill or cut the cheque.”

And under the Macy’s photo, which shows a T-shirt featuring Peanuts characters Charlie Brown and Snoopy imprinted with “YOLO is my motto,” he added, “Macy’s … same goes for you.”

NEWS: Drake, “I Didn’t Promise ‘Marvin’s Room’ Voice Girl A Dime”, Responds To Lawsuit! [TekniqueTheKingpin*com]

Rapper Drake thinks the woman who is suing him for royalties from his hit song “Marvin’s Room” is entitled to the amount of money she’s already received — zero dollars and zero cents. 

Ericka Lee — who provided the voice of the girl on voicemail for the song (“Are you drunk right now?” — filed a lawsuit last month claiming Drake promised a co-writing credit and split of the profits on the hit song … as well as claiming Drake sent her texts saying the song was “s**t without you.” Drake filed his response last week, saying he never promised her a dime and that “she consented to the use of her voice in the song ‘Marvin’s Room’ for no compensation.”

Drake also says the two never had a romantic relationship, as she claims, and he never threatened her over her complaints about getting paid for the song.  A judge has yet to rule.

NEWS: Toronto City Officials Upset At Drake Over Misuse Of City Logo! [TekniqueTheKingpin.com]

Young Money star Drake may represent for his Toronto hometown on records but a new billboard for his Take Care sophomore album has drawn negative reactions from Canadian officials.

According to reports, the city is upset over Drizzy’s decision to promote his album with a distinct font and inaccurate population total.

Drizzy Drake does not have the coolest feuds. Other rappers go at each other; Drake gets barked at by inanimate international hubs. The Toronto Star is reporting that the city of Toronto isn’t very happy with a billboard promoting Drake’s new album, Take Care. The font is too similar to the city’s official logo (fair enough), and the owl is just hideously drawn. Plus, there’s way more people living in Toronto. The city is reviewing its options; we hope that means a cease-and-desist order, if only so his next album can be titled Drizzy Vs. City Hall, or something. When we spoke to Drake last month, he talked about feeling like a king when he’s in Toronto. If a lawsuit comes up, we’d love to see that used as his legal defense. (Black Book Mag)

A city official has specified her issues with Drizzy’s billboard.
“We would suggest,” city spokesperson Francine Antonio-Forte said in an email, “that the treatment of the word Toronto used on the billboard is very similar to the wordmark that forms part of the Toronto logo. The similarity of the wordmarks, in conjunction with other creative elements used for the billboard, may cause some confusion about the source of the information. … While the city is proud of its local and international talent, we have a general practice of reviewing and addressing reported or known cases related to the possible misuse of the Toronto logo,” she said. (Toronto Star)

Last year, the rapper discussed his love for Toronto fans.

“Toronto is the biggest inspiration behind my music,” he said in an interview. “I do everything I do for Toronto. It’s a city I really believe in. It’s got a bunch of great people. We got a lot of undiscovered things in Toronto, man: women, nightlife, restaurants, clubs and talent. Women, first. I just wanna bring the city to the forefront. I feel like every place needs an ambassador. They need somebody to show the rest of the world how magical that place can be. I think Jay[-Z] does it for New York, a lot of people do it for Atlanta, Kanye did it for Chicago. A lot of rappers take it upon themselves. So I just really wanna be that guy for Toronto.” (Canadian Press)

Outside of city issues, Drake’s new sophomore album has sold nearly 900,000 copies.

Leading the way this week is Drake’s Take Care remaining at No. 4 with 90,200 behind Justin Bieber’s Under the Mistletoe (133,500), Adele’s 21 (143,600) and Michael Buble’s Christmas (292,500). According to Nielsen SoundScan, Drizzy’s sophomore album has sold 894,400 units after three weeks in stores. (SOHH Sales Wrap)

NEWS: Cat Washington, Drake’s Ex-Girl Leaks On Their Relationship, Sex & All! [TekniqueTheKingpin.com]

“This song reminds me of Cat from Philly
a girl I use to love till she started acting silly
Her heart is a lil chilly she a lil too carefree
in 10 years whose payin for all that therapy …..n*gga not me.
Im probably not the man you take me for
but I bet I could be if you make me yours
Most of the sh*t I say is true
when Im done with Bad Girls
i’m comin straight for you good girl”

These are the Lyrics to Drake’s “Good Girl Gone Bad” song… That’s right him and Cat were an official item! Before the Bad Girl’s Club and Rihanna, Cat and Drake made it exclusive after meeting on the set of “Best I Ever Had” video shoot. Here’s what Kat had to say on Philly’s Hot 107.9 radio station… She spills the beans about Drake’s bedroom abilities and everything!!!

On how she met Drake:

We met on the set of “Best I Ever Had.” It was real cool! We sat on the bleachers on set directed by Kanye [West]. Having fun, tweeted each other back and forth–real cool. Never thought it would go anywhere just cool, kicking it. The next thing you know I’m in Toronto and we’re having dinner.

He flew me out to Toronto and we started kicking it and liking each other. One flight turned into ten then the next thing you know I got a toothbrush in there and it’s on.

How long did it take for you to get from just dating to a relationship?

Like a month. It was like 0 to 60.

You moved to Toronto?

Yeah, I was actually there and packed up and was like “I’m out….I’m in love.”

Did you meet his mom?

Yeah, she’s a very nice lady.

How long did it take you to go from condom to no condom?

That’s assuming there was ever one involved.

On if he’s well endowed:

He is a phenomenal “peach eater” and he is black and Jewish and the black side is Mandingo.

On if she was in love with Drake:

Of course, it was an awesome relationship. I was in love, he was in love and by the way in the song he said he was in love, so don’t try to switch it up now. I never mentioned you, you mentioned me. It was good. I’m talking family dinners and we in Whole Foods pushing the cart around. It was a regular relationship. I was in love and he was in love but at the end of the day he started getting a little bit too loose. Meaning he pops up in the tabloids with Maliah, trips to Jamaica that I wasn’t invited to or never heard about. I’m from Philly and we don’t go for that.

It’s a problem [when] you had the kind of relationship we had. That was my dude; it wasn’t somebody I was just kicking it with. If you were just kicking it, you can do what you wanna do but I was yours and you were mine.

On if He gave her gifts:

He’s a very kind-hearted individual. We traveled a lot and we shopped so of course the price tag got a little expensive. A Car, bills paid..but we were together so it wasn’t like he was tricking.

On why they broke upWell, we broke up because I wanted to do the Bad Girls Club and that was a whole big issue too. I was like, “I have my own career and I need to move forward to and he was kind of like “I really don’t want you to go on there and embarrass me.” I was like, “Well, you know my career is my career. You know you’re Drake and you’re cool but I need to be cool too. I can’t sit around and try to get pregnant by you and be a baby mama. I need to make a career for myself.”
