Drake Reveals New Date For Young Money Get-Together

Following the opening of OVO Fest, things got off to a tremendous start last weekend. Drake showed up on stage for the All Canadian North Stars performance honoring the pioneers of hip-hop who made their mark on the genre. It appears like his excessive partying caught up to him, which is unfortunate. He revealed on Monday that he had tested positive for COVID-19, and that the Young Money Reunion event for OVO Fest had been postponed as a result.

“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,” he stated. “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).” 

Fortunately, it appears that the immunization worked because the rapper tested negative a few days later. Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne will be joining him for the Young Money reunion at OVO Fest, he announced on Instagram today.

“Negative test…positive outcome…this was the only date available until the fall and because the family is so solid everybody is flying back in to make it happen for you all…SEE YOU SATURDAY…young moulaaa,” He made a statement on Instagram.

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.

Nicki Minaj Appears To Criticize Kanye West During Her Performance At The Essence Festival

Nicki Minaj abruptly ended her “Monster” performance at the Essence Festival on Friday, saying she doesn’t “fuck with clowns.” Numerous fans consider Minaj’s guest verse on the Kanye West song to be her greatest.

She performed a number of her biggest songs, including “Do We Have A Problem,” “We Go Up,” “Did It On ’em,” and “Beez in the Trap,” until her DJ started playing “Monster” and Minaj abruptly stopped it.

“A monster though!” Minaj started. “A monster though! But we don’t fuck with clowns.”

She then presented Lil Wayne and Birdman as her special guests for the set, along with Cash Money Records co-founder Birdman. They gave the act “#1 Stunna, “Seeing Green, High School, Truffle Butter, and A Milli are few examples.

It’s unclear what caused the relationship between the two musicians to deteriorate, if Minaj’s remarks were meant as an insult. Online haters speculated that West’s recent duet with Cardi B on “Hot Shit” was perhaps the reason.

After Minaj’s Performance, West Has Not Yet Commented

2010 saw the debut of “Monster,” which was a tune on Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, his fifth studio album. The song also includes Jay-Z, Rick Ross, and Bon Iver in addition to Minaj.

On Sunday, Summer Walker, The Roots and Friends, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, and other artists are expected to perform at the Essence Festival’s continuing stage.

Doja Cat Talks About Being A Rapper And Nicki Minaj's Influence

Doja Cat Talks About Being A Rapper And Nicki Minaj’s Influence

Doja Cat claims that winning a Grammy in the rap category would mean “everything” to her. Despite hip hop purists debating whether she is a rapper. Earlier this year, her collaboration with Saweetie, “Best Friend,” got nominated for a Grammy for Best Rap Song.

“The only person who should be rating hip-hop is an OG or somebody who is respected in hip-hop,”  Doja requested a fresh profile from Elle.

She revealed why she enjoys rap music: “When I was little, that’s kind of all I listened to,” she named Busta Rhymes and Lauryn Hill. “I’ve rapped since the beginning, and I really couldn’t even sing that well to begin with I got a lot better. I use my voice as a tool to create these worlds, and it’s fine if people think that I can’t rap.”

Remy Ma is one well-known figure that claims Doja isn’t a rapper. In a March appearance on Drink Champs, the legendary rapper commended Doja for making “dope recordings,” but claimed her music shouldn’t be  among rap music.

Doja later recognized Nicki Minaj as one of her key influences in the interview. They previously worked together on a remix of Doja’s “Say So.”

“I think her as a businesswoman really inspired me,” According to Doja. “The way Nicki can carry herself felt almost alien to me, because I was kind of a little runty kid, trapped in her room, just watching YouTube videos. And back then I was like, ‘Damn, that’s dope.’”

Nicki Minaj's Father's Killer Pleads Guilty To Two Counts Of Murder And Faces Prison Time

Nicki Minaj’s Father’s Killer Pleads Guilty To Two Counts Of Murder And Faces Prison Time

Nicki Minaj’s family is on the verge of receiving justice. Robert Maraj’s killer, Charles Polevich, entered a plea, according to TMZ, more than a year after his death.

The 71-year-old admitted to leaving the scene of an incident without reporting it and tampering with physical evidence, both felonies.

Polevich was facing a maximum sentence of seven years in prison, but Judge Howard Sturim has agreed to sentence him to only one year. “No more than one year in jail, along with community service and suspension of his driver’s license.”

According to Page Six, the motorist struck Maraj on February 12th, 2021, when he was crossing a street in Mineola. Polevich stepped out of his car and asked the victim if he was okay before fleeing the scene without offering any assistance or calling the cops.

Carol Maraj, Nicki Minaj’s mother, filed a $150 million lawsuit against Polevich in Nassau County’s state Supreme Court in March of last year. Ben Crump and Paul Napoli, attorneys at the time, stated, “[Polevich] was not only irresponsible and negligent but more concerned about running away and hiding than seeking help.”

“Polevich’s behaviour was criminal, cowardly, and immoral. We will hold him responsible for his reckless actions that led to Robert Maraj’s death!”

Nicki Minaj and Fivio Foreign created an obvious smash with “We Go Up,” but did you know that the Queen Barb got a slot on his “What’s My Name” tune by the New York-born rapper?

If you’re unfamiliar with the song, it’s on Fivio’s debut B.I.B.L.E. album, which was out on April 8th and features Queen Naija and Coi Leray. The three-minute, 21-second title includes a sample of Destiny’s Child’s “Say My Name,” and it became a fan favorite from the tracklist.

Nicki Minaj On “We Go Up” Video

Mama Minaj made it clear after the release of the music video for “We Go Up” that she won’t hesitate to “delay the album” if the video doesn’t do well. That doesn’t appear to be an issue as the clip was trending #1 only a few days ago.

The “Did It On ‘Em” recording artist came by the comment area to give a few words after the father of two submitted a joyous post. “The [fact that] you asked me to get on ‘Say My Name’ months ago, now even that’s [f*cking] outta here!!! YIKES. CONGRATULATIONS,” 

Minaj also stated in a comment “Fivi n*ggaz ain’t even drop a bag on this song yet. No YouTube countdown/promo. No radio. No playlisting. You a real one. It’s [Up!].” 

“As tempted as I was to make it a 2-3 minute song, nah man. [F*ck that]. All genuine love from the PEOPLE!!!” she added.

Young Thug Shares The Cover Art For His Next Music

Young Thug is the latest to join the list of announcements that have enthralled Hip Hop. Nicki Minaj recently released a music video that teased her awaited album, Pusha T’s It’s Almost Dry is on the road, and Kendrick Lamar stated this week that his new album will be out in May. Thugger surprised fans by sharing the cover art for his upcoming album, and fans can’t get enough of it.

Thugger closed his eyes, shirtless, and covered in blood in the photograph. Fans went wild with his caption.

“These past few weeks gave me so much to talk bout.. y’all ready??” he stated. People immediately assumed Thug would speak about the murder of LaKevia Jackson, the mother of his 14-year-old son. She got shot and died at a family entertainment facility during a bowling alley and a skating rink last month following a reported dispute or quarrel.

A man is reportedly arrested in connection with the slaying earlier this month, according to reports. Young Thug hasn’t said anything about his terrible death, but many believe the time has come for him to speak up.

Nicki Minaj Releases The Video For “We Go Up” With Fivio Foreign, Threatens Album Delay

Nicki Minaj has been working hard in the studio in preparation for the start of 2022. In March, she returned to Brooklyn to hire drill rhymer Fivio Foreign for “We Go Up.” Less than a month later, the New York natives are spinning the block for a gritty visual, which dropped on Tuesday (April 19).

Fivio chose the sour apple lime green sports car while Nicki chose the bright pink Lamborghini to race around the Big Apple. They paid honor to their birthplace by making New York City appear far more hospitable than the customary dismal days during the winter season.

Nicki Minaj Releases And Speaks On Her Fifth Studio Album

Last week, she stated on The Late Late Show with James Corden that her fifth studio album would be out before the summer of this year.

“I do know that it’s soon, and I do know that it’s a lot sooner than it’s ever been,” she said. “And I know that it’s coming this year. And I know that it’ll be out before the summertime.”

Nicki Minaj isn’t about to let the Barbz off the hook yet, threatening to postpone her album if the “We Go Up” video doesn’t do “what needs to be done” by any criteria.

“If y’all don’t do what needs to be done with the #WeGoUpVideo I will significantly and I DO mean significantly…delay the…the…the…oh what’s the word… oh! the album,” she wrote. “That’s right. *sighs* the album *devil wears Prada Meryl Streep voice*.”

6ix9ine Mocks Fivio Foreign's First Week Album Sales

6ix9ine Mocks Fivio Foreign’s First Week Album Sales.

6ix9ine and Fivio Foreign are in a verbal spat, and as with most feuds featuring the “TROLLZ” rapper, it’s just going to get worse.

Fivio’s debut album B.I.B.L.E., which was released on Friday (April 8), is expected to sell 29,000 album-equivalent units in its first week, according to reports earlier this week. While that amount is expected to land 6ix9ine in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 for the first time, he is less than happy with the results.

6ix9ine On Fivio’s Sales Forecasts

On Wednesday (April 13), after seeing Fivio’s sales forecasts on DJ Akademiks’ Instagram page, the controversial rap figure — who has sold 55K, 66K, and 53K first-week copies across his first three releases — rushed into the comments area to mock his fellow New Yorker.

“This y’all king?” he wrote. “Not blackballed, all those features, the whole industry promoted that [crying face emojis] and now you Kanye and Nicki sidekick even they even tried to help you promote.”

The spat between Fivio Foreign and 6ix9ine began last week, sparked by rivalry for the title of “King of New York.”

Fivio, who claimed to be the successor to the late Pop Smoke’s throne on “City of Gods,” questioned 6ix9ine’s claim with a cryptic tweet after he said “the King of New York is coming back” while announcing his return to music.

“5 Billboards in Times Square, Top 5 songs in NY on Apple at once, & articles in both Daily News & NY Times,” he tweeted. “Don’t ever let that n*gga say he the King Of this city.”

Fivio Foreign and 6ix9ine aren’t the first rappers to fight for the title of “King of New York.” Following the tragic murder of The Notorious B.I.G. in 1997, JAY-Z and Nas famously fought for the title belt, while 50 Cent’s meteoric rise in the early 2000s generated competition with Ja Rule, Fat Joe, and Cam’ron.
