Since Drake’s debut album Thank Me Later leaked last week, one of the most-talked-about tracks is its opening song, “Fireworks,” where he reveals a brief relationship with pop star Rihanna.
If you’re up on your gossip, over a year ago, the rapper and RiRi were spotted at Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge in New York, where they were rumored to have spent the evening making out. From there, they were rumored to be dating. However, neither publicly confirmed any relationship. That is, until now, because Drizzy lets it all out in the song.
I could tell it wasn’t love, I just thought you’d f*** with me / Who could’ve predicted Lucky Strike would have you stuck with me,” Drake spits on “Fireworks.” “Damn / I kept my wits about me luckily, what happened between us that night, it always seems to trouble me / Now all of a sudden these gossip rags wanna cover me, and you makin’ it seem like it happened that way because of me / But I was curious, and I’ll never forget it baby, what an experience / You could’ve been the one, but it wasn’t that serious.
I was a pawn,” he told the paper. “You know what she was doing to me? She was doing exactly what I’ve done to so many women throughout my life, which is show them quality time, then disappear. I was like, ‘Wow, this feels terrible.
Apparently Drake wrote a song for Rihanna, but it was never released.
Damn, like that Drake?
If you were awake last night, then you were probably lucky enough to catch Drake live on Ustream from Manchester, UK. Joined by Jas Prince, Future, and Niko, our Young Angel played Lil Wayne’s Riker’s Island phone freestyle over the “Light Up” track from Drake’s Thank Me Later album that’s due out on June 15th. Drake also said that his homecoming (Toronto show) will be on August 1st at the Molson Amphitheatre.

Drake tells DJ Envy that there will be a Drake and Lil Wayne album. It’s official! Once Lil Wayne gets out. What you all think about that?
In an interview with DJ Envy over the weekend, Drake revealed why he stood up for Nicki Minaj after she was dissed by Lil Kim:

I feel like Lil’ Kim is a G in the game. I feel like you’re a part of an era that’s classic, that we’ll never forget as young kids, me and Nick. You don’t have to do that. You don’t have to get onstage and tell people to pay homage, that’s a given. I’ve watched Nicki pay homage time and time again. I didn’t respect that, whoever else was onstage with her, I didn’t respect that at all.
You just wearing your heart on your sleeve. You’re showing that you’re upset. Nobody’s done that to me yet. I would never expect Jay or [Kanye] to get onstage and be like, “Pay homage to me. You need to respect me”. They command my respect with their music and talent. I feel that’s signs you’re just losing it. I really did take that personally. That bothered me. I really don’t get caught up with the Twitter and Internet stuff but I did see it. And I feel like you’re supposed to be a G. That just wasn’t G to me at all.
After Drake dissed Lil’ Kim, Nicki turned around laughing, then came back and hugged him. He told her “I love you.” Then he left the stage.
Trey Songz and Drake were wildin’ out at Boston’s Jam’N 94.5 Summer Jam over the weekend. At one point during the show, they had a contest to see who could get the ladies more wild. The dialogue was comedy:
Drake: “I’m not no R&B singer but Ladies on this side, I will f*ck the sh*t out of you…
Trey: Ladies on this side. I know that’s my brother and he’s saying he is not an r&b singer but I got some magnums in my pocket right now. Who wanna go?
Drake: You still wanna play this game? Ladies on this side. What I’d like to do is take some baby oil. Put it in the microwave. I get it nice and hot. I run you a bath, I’ll towel you down and when you get out I’ll rub the baby oil all over your body and do whatever you want me to do. Does that sound good?
Trey: Ladies on my side, you know my tongue get real wet right? Whatever he can do with his hands, I can do with my mouth”…
