Drake gave the look, the verse, and even the hook to a list of up and comping rappers since he’s reached superstar status. Not to say that the Toronto rapper has birthed any artist’s career per se, but he’s undoubtedly created a platform and heightened the fan bases of a lucky few.
Drake hosting Saturday Night Live included double duty with him performing a pair of songs during each of his musical sets. The YMCMB rapper kicked renditions of “Started From The Bottom,” “Trophies,” “Hold On We’re Going Home” and “From Time.”
Drake has a love for Aaliyah that’s well documented, tried, true, and even tattooed on his body. That said, it shouldn’t be surprising that the rap star used Instagram as a means to preview an unreleased track featuring the late songstress.
Drake had a few surprises in store during last night’s “Would You Like a Tour?” show at Los Angeles’ Staples Center. By that, we mean guest appearances by West Coast legend Snoop Dogg and a few YMCMB familia in Birdman and Nicki Minaj.

UK singer-songwriter Sampha makes due on his promise to release the b-side single, “Happens,” for your listening pleasure. Rather than your typical stream, he delivers the track with a smooth visual.
