Drake Says The Young Money Reunion Has Been Postponed Following A Positive COVID-19 Test

The eagerly anticipated Young Money reunion in Toronto appears to be postponed from its originally planned date of August 1st. After testing positive for COVID-19, Drake said that his Toronto party with Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj will be postponed. The rapper said he would reschedule the festival as soon as his test came back clean, though he hasn’t said when that may be.

“I am truly devastated to say that I tested positive for COVID and the Young Money reunion show scheduled for tonight is being rescheduled to the SOONEST date possible. I will keep the city posted and share the new date whenever we have it locked. Until then I hope everyone stays safe and healthy and I love you all I am so sorry for letting you down on our weekend together and the moment I test negative I will give you everything I got on stage (except the COVID),” he stated.

The All Canadian North Stars concert, which featured classic hip-hop and R&B performers who helped establish Canada’s music culture, served as the opening act for the rapper’s OVO Fest on Thursday. The OVO Fest lineup on Friday includes Chris Brown and Lil Baby’s One Of Them Ones concert in Toronto.

Jack Harlow Features Lil Wayne And Brandy For The BET Awards Performance

Lil Wayne and Brandy joined Jack Harlow for performances of his smash songs “Poison” and “First Class” at the BET Awards on Sunday night. On Harlow’s most recent album, Come Home The Kids Miss You, the two songs are included.

Background dancers joined Harlow on stage to perform “Poison” to open the concert. Wayne entered the stage to continue where Harlow left off as Wayne’s verse began. “First Class” was then played before Brandy took the stage to perform the song’s remix. In the audience, Ray J could be seen beaming with excitement.

Harlow’s collaboration with Brandy comes after the “What’s Poppin” rapper admitted earlier this year during an interview with Hot 97 that he was unaware that Brandy and Ray J were related.

To support his “Industry Baby” co-star, Harlow wore a Lil Nas X shirt earlier in the evening on the red carpet. Nas publicly criticized the BET Awards as the network failed to recognize his hugely hit single with Harlow, despite it being one of the year’s most popular songs.

Harlow has already shown his support for Nas. He referred to the rapper as a “hero” earlier this year.

Fat Joe Admits Lil Wayne Is The Best Artist He’s Seen In The Studio

When asked who they think is the best at anything, artists never want to appear as if they’re picking one of their colleagues above the other. However, Fat Joe took a chance during his recent appearance on The Shop: Uninterrupted. Along with guests Don Lemon and Amy Schumer, as well as the show’s writers, the rapper paid a visit to the HBO series. Joe isn’t afraid to express himself, so he was asked who he believed were the greatest of the artists he’s seen in the studio.

“I don’t want nobody to kill me, but the best…Lil Wayne,” he stated without hesitation. “Wayne taught me so, what happens is, Lil Wayne took up from where Tupac was, he was putting out two albums a year. This guy was never in the club, he was the No. 1 artist in the world.”

“He was just in that studio, in that hit factory, in that studio,” Joe added. “So, I was privy to being there with Wayne ’cause I live in Miami and this guy, he would just get a beat, and the guy starts sparing with the speaker.” It was something the Bronx rapper had never seen before. Someone asked him to explain what that meant.

“He’s in a little room and there’s big, giant speakers, and he’s just there like, staring at the speaker,” Joe stated. “He goes in the booth, ‘I am a beast, feed me Hip Hop, feed me…’ I was like holy f*ck. This guy took the record. He’s a beast!”

Roddy Ricch Arrested For Weapons Possession Prior To The Governors Ball Show

Roddy Ricch Arrested For Weapons Possession Prior To The Governors Ball Show

Roddy Ricch did not attend the Governors Ball on Saturday (June 11) as planned. Instead, he was reportedly arrested on weapons possession charges just hours before his performance.

Roddy and his group were stopped at a CITI Field security checkpoint, according to TMZ. Authorities uncovered a loaded pistol, nine rounds of ammo, and a big magazine when searching the vehicle.

Governors Ball responded with a tweet that stated, “Unfortunately Roddy Ricch is no longer performing today.”

Roddy and two other people were eventually detained and charged with four charges of criminal weapon possession, possession of a large capacity ammo feeding mechanism, and unauthorized possession of that equipment.

The arrest is yet another low moment in rap’s relationship with law enforcement, especially in New York during festival season. Fetty Wap was jailed on federal narcotics charges prior to his appearance at Rolling Loud New York last year. Five New York rappers, including the late Pop Smoke, Sheff G, Casanova, Don Q, and 22GZ, were barred from playing at Rolling Loud New York in 2019.

Governors Ball has been scrambling to find acts to perform in recent weeks. Due to “circumstances beyond [their] control,” Migos announced on Tuesday (June 7) that they will no longer be performing at the event.

Lil Wayne was supposed to take Migos’ position on the list, but due to a “flight disruption,” he couldn’t perform on Friday (June 10) and was replaced by A$AP Ferg.

Lil Wayne has one of the most extensive music archives in hip-hop, and with so many tracks to choose from, it’s easy to forget some of the old lyrics. Tunechi had a similar experience when he had to seek for his own lyrics during a restaurant performance.

Wayne was joined by Robin Thicke for a performance of their song “Shooter,” which was released in 2005 on the album “Tha Carter 2.” The Canadian singer nailed his part, but the Young Money leader had to look up his part on the internet while playing in front of the crowd, which included 2 Chainz, Mack Maine, and others.

In a recent interview with Eminem on Young Money Radio, the “A Milli” rapper said that he frequently Googles his lyrics in case he forgets them. “Man I literally broke when I’m doing something my sh*t. If you go through my phone history, my Google history, and you press “l”, first thing gonna come up is “Lil Wayne lyrics”. I literally have to Google my lyrics to make sure I didn’t say something before,” he stated.

The Migos have been dropped off the Governors Ball 2022 roster, and Lil Wayne will take their place, the event revealed on social media on Tuesday. The swap was done mere days before the festival’s debut date.

“Due to circumstances out of our control Migos are no longer performing at Gov Ball,” before adding in another post, a tweet from the festival’s account wrote, “@LilTunechi will be playing the GOVBALLNYC Stage on Friday, June 10th at 6:30pm!”

While the event did not provide an explanation for the Migos’ absence, some speculated that it was a sign that the famed Atlanta group was parting up.

“Gov ball just confirmed the migos break up fml,” a fan replied.

After Quavo and Takeoff released the tune “Hotel Lobby” together without Offset, rumors of a breakup among the three rappers have been spreading for weeks. DJ Akademiks recently stated that he has spoken with Offset. But he does not expect the feud to get to the point of a total breakup.

Ak informed TMZ in May that he “actually spoke to Offset just the other day, and while there might be some tense feelings, he doesn’t think any ‘beef’ will escalate to a full-scale split.”

Wayne will now play on Friday, June 10 at 6:30 p.m. From June 10 to 12, the festival will take place. Kid Cudi, Halsey, and J. Cole will be among the event’s headliners.

Lil Wayne is one of the best rappers of all time, thus whenever he appears in public, followers will be stunned and want to get a snapshot of the Hip Hop legend. That happened recently, when the founder of Young Money went to see soul icon Anita Baker perform in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Weezy F Baby stood up and thanked the audience for the round of applause in a video published online, and Anita took a second out of her set to acknowledge him. One fan, in particular, couldn’t believe Lil Wayne was truly present in person.

The individual, who in dressed in a yellow t-shirt, stood up behind Wayne to express his admiration for the NOLA great. When the “A Milli” rapper turned around, the fan burst out laughing and took out his phone to record the happy moment.

During Anita Baker’s broadcast, Lil Wayne wasn’t the only one who got some love. Chance The Rapper received some praise after the singer thanked him for assisting her in obtaining her master recordings.

“You should say hello to a friend of mine by way of the music industry and by way of helping me, helping me to get a hold and ownership of my master recordings,” Baker said this while pointing to Chance, who rose up and thanked the audience for their yells and applause.

Machine Gun Kelly is venturing into punk-rock and his new album, “Mainstream Sellout” is expected to debut atop Billboard charts. According to DJ Akademiks, “Mainstream Sellout”  should debut at the number of the Billboard 200 chart attracting 90-100k sales. 

DJ Akademiks revealed that 45-55k of the number is anticipated to come from pure album sales. The new project features artists such as Lil Wanye, Gunna, Young Thug, and other rappers. Kelly changed the title of the album in January from Born with Horns to Mainstream Sellout. 

While performing at Lollapalooza Brazil, he said he has five rules with which he listens to the album. He said: 

“I have five rules for listening to Mainstream Sellout,” MGK said. “One, you have to listen to it once by yourself. Two, you have to listen to it in a car. Three, you have to listen to it with friends. Once, you have to listen to it in the daytime. And then last, you have to listen to it at nighttime. You can combine two and three, and listen to it in a car with friends. That also counts.”
