Chris Brown and Drake once had a beef over their back-to-back dating of Rihanna last year, but they’ve clearly put their differences in the past. A source tells us the duo ripped up SoHo hot spot Greenhouse together on Tuesday night with a little help from their friends. After Lil Jon and T.I. did an impromptu back-and-forth at the nightclub, Brown surprised the Corona-cheered crowd with a five-song set and repeated shoutouts to “my man, Drake” when the deejay played Drake’s tunes for the throng.
Listen to Dirty Money’s new track single featuring Drake “Loving You No More“. This track is featured on their upcoming album Last Train To Paris LP which is due to come out some time soon. The track is really not that new, because it was leaked about a year ago, but this time it’s just mastered. Check it out, for the mean time though.
Did Drake and Nicki Minaj get married, or is this a big joke on Twitter? Tons of fans are going crazy about the recent tweets from Drake and Nicki Minaj. Young Money prince and princess tweeted just minutes ago about them supposedly getting hitched secretly, and all their followers are in a re-tweeting frenzy. Nicki Minaj wrote, “Yes, its true. Drake and I tied the knot.”
A little bit after, Drake tweeted, “Please refer to @nickiminaj as Mrs. Aubrey Drake Graham and don’t stare at her too long, She’s finally mine. ”. Sources close to both artist would not confirm or talk about anything.
Can it really be, what do you think about this?
While on a little break in Capcana, Dominican Republic a couple weeks ago, Drake sat down for an impromptu performance from a local band Bocatabu.

Aaliyah’s 9th anniversary since the tragic accident was yesterday. Drake has tremendous love for Aaliyah, he even has a portrait hung up in his apartment of of her. Drake wrote a letter to Aaliyah to share his thoughts to RapRadar.com.
I’ve never lost a parent, a friend, or a lover but I will never forget this day for the rest of my life. I remember getting the news that you had passed and it connected with my heart like a clean shot from Muhammad Ali. I was crushed. Not only was I one of your biggest fans but I was truly in love with you. I loved the way you carried yourself, the way you dressed, the confidence with which you addressed passion and relationships in your music. I said to myself that even if we never met, I wanted a woman in my life just like you. I am pained that we will never get to connect now that music ended up being my career path. But you should know, we all listen to you everyday and we remain inspired and moved by all that you’ve given the world. I hope I make the right life choices so I can end up in heaven where I know you rest your head. I’ll continue to make music in your honor until the day we finally meet. Dinner’s on me!
Love you always and forever,
Watch the extended version of the MTV VMA 2010 Drake promo. Drake brings some swagger and some class to these VMA promo commercials. Drake will be performing at the VMA’s. Don’t forget to catch the VMA 2010 live Sunday September 12, at 9pm EST.
‘It wasn’t shot the way I would have shot it,’
Anthony Mandler says of Lil Wayne footage shot before he came onboard as director. Drake’s “Miss Me” video is the third project between the rapper and director Anthony Mandler (Jay-Z, Rihanna, Mary J. Blige), following their work together on the Toronto star’s “Over” and “Find Your Love.”
According to Mandler, he and Drake are establishing an aesthetic via their collaborations. Mandler said that “Over” was about re-establishing Drake visually and “Find Your Love” was intended to make Drake the lead in story.
With “Miss Me,” however, the director said the video was a particular challenge because co-star Lil Wayne’s footage was shot prior to Mandler coming onboard. [Read more →]
It looks like fans will have to wait to catch Drake and Wiz Khalifa on the same bill.
In a much-watched Ustream convo with fans on Thursday, Drizzy extended an invitation to Khalifa to join his upcoming Light Dreams and Nightmares Tour. However, the Pittsburgh MC said he won’t be added to the Nightmares lineup, which also features Clipse and Bun B, and has decided to focus on his own Waken Baken string of dates. [Read more →]
Here are some promo pictures from Drake’s photo shoot with MTV Video Music Awards. The 27th Annual MTV Video Music Awards will air on Sunday, September 12th at 9:00PM from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, and Drizzy is nominated for “Best Hip Hop Video” and “Best Male Video“.
Drake is taking it way back for his 2010 MTV Video Music Awards promo.
Donning a dapper suit, complete with a gentlemanly pocket square, the singer and rapper is surrounded by midcentury glamour as he takes the mic for a commercial touting his VMA appearance. The Toronto lyricist makes a dramatic entrance under a brightly lit “Drake” marquee and steps onto a stage populated by a sprawling big band sporting white jackets.
“I get to channel my inner [Frank] Sinatra,” Drizzy — who is up for Moonmen for Best Hip-Hop Video and Best Male Video — said on the set. “In the acting world, you gotta have reference points. I like to get into characters.”
Sinatra isn’t the only legend that influences Drake’s gentlemanly style in the promo. The “Degrassi” actor-turned-chart-topping MC also looked to Denzel Washington’s troubled trumpeter in Spike Lee’s 1990 flick “Mo’ Better Blues.” [Read more →]
Drake is doing it big right now. The Toronto MC’s debut album, Thank Me Later, is platinum, he’s about to headline his upcoming Light Dreams and Nightmares Tour and he’s just notched 1 million Twitter followers. With that type of success, there’s probably very little that is out of the lyricist’s reach. But Drake revealed that there is one thing he wants that he hasn’t been able to secure yet: snagging Wiz Khalifa as his tourmate.
“I had a little bit of a fan moment, I tried to get this third cat on my tour,” Drizzy told more than 30,000 fans who logged on to check him out live on Ustream on Thursday (August 19). The broadcast came on the heels of the premiere of his “Miss Me” video with Lil Wayne.
Apparently, Drake was keeping his plan to add another act to his tour on the low. “You know we was trying to get Wiz on the tour,” he said, simultaneously informing listeners and his team who were hanging out in the room and clearly didn’t know what he was referring to. The MC then addressed his fans once again: “Hopefully, the Light Dreams [and] Nightmares Tour, depending on what city we go to, it’ll be Clipse, Bun B and Wiz Khalifa. That’s what I’m hoping. I don’t know, maybe I spoke too soon.”
Clipse were already confirmed to join the Young Money MC on the road, along with Houston O.G. Bun B, when the tour kicks off on September 20 in Miami. The chart-topping singer and rapper asked the “Hottest Breakthrough MC” directly about possibly joining the fall tour.
If Wiz by any chance watches this, you gotta make some calls for me and make this happen,” Drake said. “We got that young energy right now, we need to go out here and kill these people.
In addition to making his plea for a more Taylor Gang-friendly Light Dreams tour lineup, the MC said he really wants to work with producer 9th Wonder on the follow-up to Thank Me Later. [Read more →]

After giving his fans a chance to watch the premiere of the “Miss Me” music video, Drake reached out to his fans — literally — during a Ustream webcast from his Toronto apartment Thursday night (Aug. 19).
