If you planned on seeing Drake and Future grace the same stage on the “Would You Like A Tour,” you’ll be sorely disappointed. Page Six reports that the Atlanta native has been kicked off the tour, because of comments he made during a recent sit down with Billboard.

The laughable clip of Marina Shifrin, a former video editor at a large Taiwanese company, quitting her job in style, while Kanye West‘s “Gone” served as theme music has amassed over 15 million view since being uploaded on September 28.

Drake‘s new album delivered, at least commercially. The Toronto rapper’s third proper project, Nothing Was The Same, lands this week at no. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. 

Like it or not, we’re in the midst of Drake season. With only weeks to go until Nothing Was The Same hits stores, Billboard releases more details about the album via their Fall Music Preview.

Drake has a history of giving loaded statements in interviews, especially in situations involving discourse. Billboard unveiled the OVO rapper’s cover story featuring his thoughts on Kendrick Lamar’s highly discussed “Control” verse, and his take was very, um, interesting.

It’s clearly Drake‘s time. As fans anxiously await his third album, Nothing Was The Same, Billboard magazine unveils their fall preview issue cover featuring the OVO founder.

Jay-Z has been buzzing in the media ever since the airing of the epic Samsung “Magna Carta” commercial, and the preview of the Magna Carta Holy Grail album. Hov’s moves of late with the telecommunications giant land the Brooklyn business mogul and rapper a spot on the cover of Billboard magazine this week.

Samsung reportedly paid $5 each for 1 million copies of Jay-Z’s upcoming Magna Carta Holy Grail album. But, Hova won’t be able to write “new rules” regarding album sales and the charts. According to SoundScan,  the mogul won’t be able to claim instant platinum status on July 4.

Comedian and actor Tracy Morgan tickled funny bones for years as a longstanding cast member on NBC’s late night sketch comedy show, Saturday Night Live and the recently ended 30 Rock. Today (April 17), the New York native landed another great gig after it was announced Morgan will host the 2013 Billboard Music Awards this […]

A Tribe Called Quest made news last week after it was announced they would be joining the iconic Prince as part of Samsung’s Next Big Thing private party and show. After the performance, Q-Tip, Phife, Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Jarobi talked rocking out at SXSW 2013, future projects and more.
