Peep this snap off ‘Odd Future‘s Tyler The Creator and Rap deity Drake, taken last night at Frank Ocean‘s LA ‘Channel Orange’ show last night.

Caught backstage, the lively pair showed their support to the ‘I Miss You’ crooner whose debut album has moved over 200,000 units in the space of two weeks- spawning the well received jam ‘Bad Religion’.

Drake’s sighting at the show comes two days after it emerged his latest tour, ‘Club Paradise’ has pulled a sweet $42 million worldwide since its launch in February

This, landing his show in the top 5 of Pollstar’s Worldwide Tour Mid-Year tally.

Righting a number of wrongs made by an underground MC before her, Minaj has risen to become the fastest rising Rapper in her field- by way of mainstream notoriety and commercial prowess.

Now,  the ‘Conceited’ Remy Ma has spoken out in her defense.

Virgin Records, in its heyday, was home to some of the most diverse and wildly successful artists the music industry has ever known.

However, a series of mergers and mishandling’s have seen the label morph into a shadow of its once-flourishing self.

That all looks set to change, though, amidst mounting speculation that Richard Branson is preparing to buy back the music arm of his Virgin empire.

Eclectic singer Nelly Furado serves up the title track from her comeback LP ‘The Spirit Indestructible’ as the set’s latest single offering.

She just may have the whole world in her hands.  For, despite the recent arrival of multiple lawsuits against her, ‘Celebration’ singer Madonna may have cause to do just that as reports indicate the Pop queen is ruling tour charts across the globe.

Leaving her nearest competitors, Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez, in her rearview…


Brandy may be The Vocal Bible, yet she proved that she knows how to ‘Put It Down’ on the dancefloor. Case, point, Access Hollywood‘s behind the scenes look at the singer’s rehearsals for an upcoming promotional appearance.
