Drake announces OVO Fest lineup

OVO Fest is already going on 6 years, which is crazy to think about, but it’ll go down the first weekend of August without a hitch and today, Drake announced the full lineup.

Looks like he’ll be merging J. Cole’s summer tour and calling on good friend Kevin Hart to perform in the T. Dot. No doubt the ‘6th’ version of OVO Fest will be a special one given that Views From The 6 should be up next.

In other news… (as you may have suspected…)

Kanye calls out Nike

Last night at Big Sean’s Grammy Weekend set at the HoB Sunset, the stars were out and it was Kanye who took over the headlines. He called out Nike real quick up above saying, “Y’all should thank Nike because they made me make these songs right here,” West says before performing ‘New Slaves'”.

Also partaking as part of Big Sean’s set was Travi$ Scott, Justin Bieber, Ty Dolla $ign, Chris Brown, Tyga, YG and DJ Mustard for “IDFWU”. And as you can tell in the photo below too, J. Lo, J. Cole, and the Jenners were at the show too.

Finally, be sure to also peep an entertaining video of Kanye letting an aspiring rapper spit some bars to him last night. Love that guy’s thankful reaction at the very end, haha.

YG “2015 Flow” (prod. DJ Mustard)

YG & DJ Mustard were upset about the Best Rap Album nominee snub and put out a new release to keep it movin’. Here’s “2015 Flow”.

Who is YG unseating though from these nominees? Whether it’s name, quality, or buzz, I feel like the artists that did get the nod deserve it over YG from a national perspective. I’m also sharing the award show perspective that Iggy Azalea’s album is hip hop and not pop, so there is a case there. I digress…
