Drake continues to make moves by teasing about a new venture by delivering flowers throughout his hometown of Toronto.
The business, named More Life Growth Co. assumes the namesake of his 2017 project. Posts on social media have popped up with Drake’s team spreading joy and positivity by handing out flowers. Based on the name and its grassroots marketing technique, some might assume that the 6 God is making his way into the marijuana business seeing that’s not only legal in Canada, but he would be following in the footsteps of fellow artists Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg who’ve gotten into weed industry.
Local television host Dina Pugliese-Mirkovich posted the Drizzy bouquet to Instagram hinting at his new business “That one time when @champagnepapi sent me flowers! Ok….so his team is out and about spreading all kinds of positive vibes with flowers to unsuspecting peeps today…but still. Lol! He’s launching a new business venture this Thursday,” she wrote. Fans are encouraged to follow @MoreLife on Instagram to stay in the know for Thursday’s launch.
The inaugural Asian edition of Rolling Loud in Hong Kong has been canceled due to security concerns. The hip-hop festival with a roster that included Wiz Khalifa, Migos, Playboi Carti, Lil Skies and more was slated for October 19-20.
A statement posted on the event’s Instagram account announced that the volatile nature of the ongoing street protests made it impossible to ensure the safety of attendees at Art Park in the West Kowloon cultural district. “After consulting with security experts, it has been determined that it is not possible to organize the upcoming Rolling Loud Hong Kong edition as we had hoped without endangering the safety of our fans, artists and staff.” The danger in question stems from China’s Communist Government’s attacks on Hong Kong residents who are resisting the removal and erosion of their most basic of Civil Rights.
All tickets for the gathering will be refunded in full through the organization’s ticketing platform within 45 business days. The event was also slated to feature sets from $uicideboy$, Sup Music, Night Lovell, Danny Towers, Pact, Ski Mask the Slump God, Go$h, Smokepurpp, Robb Bank$ and more. See the full explanation of cancellation below.
Carnage is back with a whole new vibe and completely fresh concept.
“Papi Gordo” as he is affectionately called, has recruited the likes of G-Eazy and Wiz Khalifa to create the swinging collaboration “Wait For Me.” The song about breakups and different ways to deal with them sees the two lyricists taking turns on the mic between a haunting chorus that’s backed up by a stripped-down instrumental that keeps the bass steady as Carnage has done for years.
“I wrote this song when I was on a break and locked in my house in Vegas with Prinze George,” Carnage told EW. “I sent it to G and he automatically loved it. We’ve all been through breakups. I think G and Wiz have a different perspective since they’ve both been in majorly public relationships. Both are such heartthrobs that always have girls after them, it was time we heard from them on the topic. I think it’s very refreshing.” Listen to the Heavyweight/EMPIRE-released recording through its trippy “visualizer” below.
Wiz Khalifa celebrated his favorite day of the year, yesterday, by droppinga hazy music video, which accompanied the entire mixtape, Fly Times, Vol 1: The Good Fly Young.
The Pittsburgh-born rapper kept the details for Fly Times under wraps before the clock struck midnight on April 20, save for a tweet on Friday night that revealed his excitement for the project. This huge release comes hot off the heels of Behind the Cam, his new docuseries that premiered on Apple Music this week.
In the “Taylor” clip, Khalifa rolls some joints and chills poolside with the bikini-clad object of his affection as he happily drifts along, fully clothed, in a giant inflatable flamingo pool float at one point. The Warner Music-releasedFly Times, Vol. 1 spans 14 tracks and includes collaborations with Ty Dolla $ign, Curren$y, multiple tracks with Young Deji and more.
Wiz Khalifa has been an influence within the Hip-Hip world for well over a decade, but there is still much that is unknown about the Taylor Gang head honcho.
The 31-year-old rapper recently took to Instagram to announce Wiz Khalifa: Behind the Cam, a docuseries with Apple Music that will allow fans to view into the rapper’s life like never before. “Taylor Gang has been with me since the start, so I wanted to make something to show just how far we’ve come,” Wiz says of the inspiration behind the film.
A two-minute trailer that premiered via Variety provides a peek into what’s to come, detailing the North Dakota native’s rise in the rap game and featuring interviews with family and friends who were there to see it first-hand every step of the way. Behind the Cam is set to be laid out in five episodes, which will debut on the streaming service in full on Wednesday, April 17th. Take a look at the teaser below.
In December, Wiz Khalifa told his fans that they can expect his 2009 joint album with New Orleans rapper Curren$y to finally arrive in 2019. To go along with the elusive project, the Live in Concert collaborators announced that they’ll embark on a 22-date trek across North America.
The “2009” tour will begin in Seattle on February 8th and run for just over a month into the start of March. Stops along the route include San Francisco, Portland, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, and more before wrapping up in San Antonio.
Tickets are scheduled to go on sale at 10AM local time this Friday (January 11th) via Live Nation. The “Black and Yellow” rapper also stated that a limited run of 2009 merchandise will be released soon, but on no specific date. Check out the official tour announcement and full list of shows below.
The new single that features the “hook king” Lee, also contains a smooth guitar riff, atmospheric synths, and mellow drums. Rae Sremmurd’s singer opens the track with “My night runs into morning, all the time/And through my phone I’m scrolling, bang my line/Off the drink it’s hard to focus/Seems like I am always chosen by romantics that are hopeless.”
Sremmurd subsequently hands the track over to Khalifa who continues the vibe with, “I’m getting all of my checks/I’m winning all of my bets/No, I ain’t letting you down/Baby, I’m giving a hundred percent.” Listen to the whole song below.
Rolling Papers 2 is expected to arrive on July 13th via Atlantic Records, ahead of Wiz’s upcoming Dazed and Blazed Tour featuring Rae Sremmurd. The 27-date tour kicks off on July 21st in Detroit, MI before the tour hits Chicago, Brooklyn, Atlanta, and more.
On June 29, Demi Lovato threw an actual house party. If you didn’t get an invite, don’t fear, you can live vicariously through her new video for “Sorry Not Sorry.”
The footage for the video was actually taken from Lovato’s June 29th party and showed what really happens at her parties, namely: swimming pool shenangians, make outs, a foam-filled room and celebrity appearances by Wiz Khalifa, Paris Hilton and Jamie Foxx.
“My favorite part about the filming the music video for ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ would have to be having all my closest friends there,” Lovato said in a recent Twitter video Q&A. “It was the funnest video that I’ve ever shot.”
Before even sharing the song, the singer posted a message to fans saying that the song is “an anthem for anyone who’s ever been hated on and risen above it and come out from the other side like a f—ing savage!!!”
The tear-jerking Furious 7 ballad (that also serves as a tribute to the late Paul Walker) is and was definitely a popular song, but (at least in my circle) it did not seem to be as wildly viral as “Gangnam Style” was. Nonetheless, the fans have spoken with their views and we now have a new most-viewed video.
Watch the most-watched YouTube video, Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again,” featuring Charlie Puth, below.
Wiz Khalifa has taken the cute and cuddly “Closer” and turned it into a weed-centric stoner anthem.
The remix, which he first performed at Okeechobee Festival in Florida earlier this month, leaves the melody and chorus untouched. However, Khalifa, adds his own flavor to the pre-chorus with lyrics like, “Take a joint to the face and we both go far/ Let’s get hi-i-i-gh, can’t stop,” which is quite a departure from the loving atmosphere of the original.
