Looks like being one of the best rappers out (currently) isn’t the only thing on Drake’s agenda. The “Back to Back” rapper has allegedly teamed up with “Top Chef Masters’” Susur Lee for a new restaurant called Fring’s!
Fring’s and will be located in Drake’s hometown of Toronto. Based on Drake’s Instagram post, he will become a restaurant owner sooner rather than later.
Lee and the Toronto rapper hosted an event to promote Fring’s, which pretty much confirms the new restaurant is really in the works. In a statement to Now Toronto, the former “Top Chef Master” contestant stated, “We haven’t really figured it out yet. We’re still testing and tasting, you know. Good things take time.”
Two weeks ago when Meek Mill came after Drake on social media, it sent the hip hop industry into a frenzy. No one saw that coming, especially since Drake was just featured on one of Meek’s latest songs “R.I.C.O” on his new album “Dreams Worth More Than Money.”
Putting the two rappers’ latest collaboration aside, Drake is friends and works very closely with the “Lord Knows” artist’s girlfriend Nicki Minaj. So it poses the question: Why did Meek Mill attack Drake on social media for the whole world to see?
After Meek accused Drake of having a ghostwriter fans began to take sides. Even radio station personalities Funkmaster Flex and Charlamagne chimed in. Things got ugly really quickly, to the point where City Councillor, Norm Kelly banned Meek Mill from Toronto.
Both rappers released consecutive diss tracks about each other within the past two weeks, but fans weren’t impressed. When you compare this rap feud to the likes of the Nas vs Jay Z and Biggie vs Tupac beef, the lyrics on these modern day diss records were unimpressive from both parties.
Given the situation we all expected harder punchlines, but music has to keep up with the speed of technology. Diligence has taken a backseat and it certainly showed in the Meek Mill vs Drake feud.
Minaj and Drake are more like industry brother and sister (even though Drake has practically professed his love for the rap diva). One can’t help but ask: Why didn’t Nicki Minaj stop Meek from beefing with Drake on Twitter?
Did Meek Mill and Drake purposely go easy on each other on their diss tracks? Was this all a publicity stunt or did Meek commit career suicide?
The Carters are about to change the hip hop game and we don’t mean Jay and Bey. Jay Z and Lil Wayne have started off the new year making some major power moves in the hip hop industry.
By now you’ve heard the news; Jay Z made a $56M bid for Swedish music steaming company Asprio. A few weeks ago rumors of the hip hop mogul’s purchase of New York City radio station Hot 97 surfaced, but he shot down those rumors immediately.
Apparently the news was on the right track, with the wrong information. Jay Z’s new business venture is a major move for the hip hop industry. If the “Holy Grail” rapper’s bid goes through, that means he has the power to change they way people stream music.
In other news Lil Wayne is suing his mentor/father figure Birdman. He wants $51 M and his release from Cash Money. To add insult to injury Weezy is also hinting at taking Drake and Nicki Minaj along with the money and his contract.
Another strong move in hip hop – why? Nicki Minaj and Drake have been at the top of the charts for almost 6 years strong. If Lil Wayne is released from his contract and takes his fellow rappers with him, the Young Money founder will have one of the strongest units in hip hop for his new venture (what ever that may be).
You have to admit, if this actually happens this will go down in hip hop history.
Cash Money’s deteriorating roster started with rapper Tyga in October 2014 when was interviewed by Vibe Magazine. Will the Cash Money franchise survive with the loss of Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Drake?
Jay Z bids for Aspiro and Lil Wayne suing Birdman taking Nicki Minaj and Drake, do you think the Carters are making some major power moves in hip hop news?
