The media industry was set ablaze today as it was announced that Kanye West, Drake and Bruno Mars would be headlining Wireless Festival on 3 separate days in both London and Birmingham this July. Supporting acts include Pharrell Williams, Rudimental and the reunited duo Outkast.

After taking place in London’s Hyde Park and the Olympic Park, Wireless has now found a new home in North London’s Finsbury Park making it a 5 minute journey for myself. Result!!!

Drake On SNL

drake-SNL-2014

Drake’s eagerly anticipated SNL appearance took place last night over in the States. The biggest rap star on the planet stopped by for some comedy sketches and performances, plus he even brought the talented Jhene Aiko along for the ride. Drizzy also cut the beard off making him look like his former Degrassi character LOL.

Check the performances after the jump..




Drake – Trophies | New Music

First the We Made It Freestyle and now Drake comes through, as promised, with the Hit-Boy produced track Trophies. This is another triumphant track that didn’t make Nothing Was The Same but it will make the rap game happy.




Drake – We Made It | Freestyle

Drizzy continues to give his fans heat with another slick freestyle over Soulja Boy’s banger We Made It. I think Drake has developed a formula for free styling over trap rappers beats and merging lyrical content with a club friendly flow. This one will tear up clubs for 2014.




Kanye West Brings Out Drake During Yeezus Tour Finale

The T Dot got turnt last night as Kanye West’s Yeezus tour came to a spectacular finale in Canada. The GOOD Music rapper brought out hometown hero Drake for a few songs and Yeezus even managed to throw in a huge compliment by naming Drizzy a “Rap God”.

Future – Sh*t (remix) ft. Drake & Juicy J | New Music

15-drake-future

Drake was teasing us with this verse not too long ago but now the full remix to Future’s hit song “Sh*t” has found its way on to the internet and it features Juicy J too. Many will deliberate whether Drizzy was indirectly sending for Kendrick Lamar but I think it’s pretty obvious. He also shouts out his ties with Michael Jordan giving the OVO x Air Jordan deal some more coverage.

Drake has tooooo many flows!




Beyonce – Mine (ft. Drake) Official Video

Beyoncé_-_BEYONCÉ

Beyonce set the world alight last night when she dropped her self titled 5th studio out of literally no where. The LP has 14 tracks and 17 music videos making this an unprecedented move for a music artist. Features include Jay-Z, Miguel, Frank Ocean and Drake on the track “Mine” which is already a stand out for me personally.

You can check the visual for the high profile collab after the cut…




56th Annual Grammy Awards 2014 | Nominations Revealed

2014_grammy_temp_cover-flat_rgb_-_copy

It’s that time of the year again where the music industries elite gather to see who the nominees are for the annual Grammy awards. Jay-Z leads the pack for 2014 with 9 nods despite having a rather mediocre album. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams and Justin Timberlake all got 7 each.

The most interesting category for me though is Best Rap Album. “Yeezus” made the cut along with Drake’s “NWTS” but J. Cole’s “Born Sinner” got overlooked. Tragic.
