Drake: Homecoming (Trailer)

Pre Young Money Drizzy about to hit select cinemas.

Seriously. I’m a little puzzled but this looks like the must-see for longtime die-hards as what was supposed to be lost forever is now found: concert footage from Drake’s 2009 homecoming concert when he had the ‘So Far Gone’ buzz.

Hopefully it’s not like the quality though of internet videos in 2009. Just 5 years ago, and smartphones were like flip phones and no one had a Canon. So… yeah. That’s why I’m not sure about this. But alas, here’s the trailer and it is HD video. Also featuring Jas Prince who talks on initially sharing Drake’s music to Lil Wayne.

Shawn Marion “I’m A Champion” f/ T-Pain, Dorrough, & Young Cash

So, this seems like a fun idea. A compilation album called Full Court Press, Vol. 1 that will feature rap verses from NBA players like known baller-rappers Iman Shumpert, Stephen Jackson and Lou Williams. Then, according to SLAM, which should be a different version with Willie in instead of Mario Winans. Either way, a good reason to bring up that Carlos Boozer and Twista once made a track together (I didn’t think I’d miss the Carlos Boozer Era this much…)

Anyway, the first release from this compilation is Shawn Marion linking up with T-Pain, Dorrough, & Young Cash for a song called “I’m A Champion”. Marion’s verse salutes Dallas since he won’t be returning next season and reminds the rest of the league that he was a champion (and curiously, still a free agent). Oh, and this fun play on his nickname:

I’m like Neo, welcome to the Matrix

More tracks on deck will be “Welcome to NY” with Iman Shumpert & Ma$e, the aforementioned “Winning Streak” with Twista, Willie Taylor & Carlos Boozer, “Go Hard” featuring Bun B & Stephen Jackson, “We Hoopin’ (Yeah Boy)” with Charlie Villanueva & Royce Da 5’9, and “Airtime” featuring Future, Sean Garrett, Rocko & Lou Williams. Hah! Enjoy.
