Watch behind scene footage of Drake‘s “HYFR” music video featuring Lil Wayne. Derrick G provides us with some really good footage and from the looks of it, seems like the shooting of that video was a lot of fun.
Timbaland kept it real when he stopped by Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club.” The super-producer reminisced on the past and looked to the future, speaking about the return of Missy Elliott, his upcoming album Shock Value III (which he personally calls Ezekiel’s Wheel), a Drake and Aaliyah collaboration, and where Aaliyah would be if she was alive today.
Check out some photos from Drake‘s Copenhagen, Denmark show part of his Club Paradise tour. The photographer of these pictures took some really nice shots of the event as well as the fan that attended.
Rita Ora released her single R.I.P. featuring Tinie Tempah a couple weeks ago. This song was written by Drake, but Drake was not featured on the main track, but here’s the remix featuring none other than Drizzy. Listen and download Rita Ora ft. Tinie Tempah and Drake – R.I.P. (Remix).
21yr old Rorrey Fenty, Rihanna‘s brother, speaks on Riri’s love life to Heat magazine a couple days ago. In his interview with Heat magazine, Rorrey gives details about how his sister dealt with the public break-up with Chris Brown and on how Drake almost became his brother-in-law. Transcript of the interview is after the jump. Let us know what you think, you think this is true or false?
Rorrey On Rihanna’s Relationship With Chris Brown:
“Rihanna and Chris Brown were great together, they were like soul mates. It’s a very sensitive subject – I just blank it out and I think she blanks it out, too.”
“When she looks unhappy, it’s not because of her missing Chris, it’s because of how hectic her lifestyle is – she sometimes does 13-hour days.”
On Rihanna’s Relationship With Drake:
“Rihanna doesn’t have a boyfriend right now. Drake and Rihanna used to be together – and he’s a pretty cool dude.”
“I was in a club in LA, and he saw me and came over. I was nearly his brother-in-law, but I didn’t know him so well, so I was touched by that.”
On Protecting His Sister:
“I’ve always been protective of her. Certain guys will be looking at her or coming on to her, and I tell them to move away and be careful not to bother her.”
“We don’t have a drinking age in Barbados, so we started partying at 14 years old.” [Sources differ on whether their is a legal drinking age in Barbados. The general consensus is that the age is 18 but anyone between the ages 10-18 can be served a drink if accompanied by their parents - a practice that is pretty common in the Caribbean]
On Rihanna’s dreams of getting married:
“I just want her to be happy. She has talked to me about getting married and having children. She plans on settling down, but she wants to focus on her career. She needs a man who likes to do the stuff she likes doing, someone laidback and fun-loving.”
“There are a million guys across the world waiting to take her out, but she says they are more intimidated by her than anything else.”
VIBE caught up with Lil X, the director of Drake‘s new music video “HYFR“. Read the whole interview after the jump.
Let’s talk about the Drake video. How did you guys get connected?
Oh, you know, I’ve known Drake since the Toronto days. We’ve been talking about doing a video forever, but just couldn’t quite align with the right project. Which is kind of right right now, serendipity, because this is by far his most ambitious and interesting concept, you know. This isn’t just like, “Here’s a pretty video,” you know what I’m saying. This is like, “What?!” [Laughs]. Yeah, definitely the conversation goes to, “What?!”
