Drake is so hype about the Raptors win you would think he was playing in the NBA Finals himself.

Being the megafan that he is, the hip-hop star is celebrating the team’s sweet victory with some new music –– it’s about time!

Drizzy announced via Instagram live last night that he will be releasing two new tracks scheduled to drop sometime today (June 14). Entitled “Omertá” and the Rick Ross-featured “Money in the Grave,” surprising his followers with an over-the-top caption, “THE CHIP TO THE 6!!!!!!!!!!!!”

The Toronto Raptors ambassador also revealed he’ll be the one designing the rings for the Raptors amid poking fun at Klay Thompson, referring to the time the Warriors SG called him a “bum a**” and saying that he’ll let that incident go.

“Yo Klay, when you’re wakeboarding this summer in your Quiksilver shorts, you know what time it is. When you see me, you better wave — friendly, too,” he teased.

Drake believes, “That dynasty’s over.” “We did what we had to do. Praying for KD, praying for Big Papi, but tonight belongs to Toronto.”

Nora Rothman and Cape Francis release “Fifteen / Feet” just in time for Summer

Published

Earlier this month, singer-songwriter and activist Nora Rothman debuted the first single off her forthcoming EP titled “Nothing New.” The lead single, “strange,” set the tone for the ethereal project that takes influence from folk and soul for a sound Popdust describes as “dream-pop gauziness and 70’s folk motifs.” 

Today, ahead of the EP’s July 12th release, Rothman is debuting another cut from the project, this time a collaboration with Cape Francis on “fifteen / feet.”

Produced by Kate Ellwanger (aka DOT) and co-written with Cape Francis, “fifteen / feet” is a song described as “as foreboding as it is wondrous” by Atwood Magazine. The three-minute composition is a lush soundscape of organic instrumentation, driven by guitar and drums, that acts as an ideal foundation to showcase Rothman’s soft vocals and poetic songwriting.

“This EP includes songs from the past five years, like random pages ripped out of a diary,” describes Rothman. “The EP explores newness, nostalgia, and the negative space between them. In the end, it’s really nothing new — we’ve all been here before.”

Meek Mill plans to slap Cosmo hotel with discrimination lawsuit

Meek Mill and the Cosmopolitan hotel are allegedly headed to court.

On Tuesday (May 28), Mill’s lawyer Joe Tacopina confirmed to TMZ that the hip-hop star plans to sue the Las Vegas hospitality company for “heavily monetary damages” over racial discrimination.

Tacopina is accusing several of the hotel’s personnel of “lying and humiliating Meek” upon his arrival at the Marquee Dayclub on Saturday (May 25).

“The assertion that the Cosmopolitan denied Meek because of capacity concerns at Marquee Dayclub is outright false,” Tacopina told TMZ after Meek was denied entry. “In the recorded video, Meek also inquired about getting a meal at one of the hotel’s restaurants, yet their security team continued to deny Meek and said he would be arrested for trespassing regardless of location in the premises. The Cosmopolitan’s conduct continues to be deplorable.”

For his part, Meek once again addressed the entire situation on Tuesday morning. “And I don’t care about that casino I bring in millions every time my name mentioned on a Vegas casino event where I am always welcome … but y’all not gone just treat us like shit and act like it’s normal Put some respect on our race [‘]please and thank you,[‘]” Meek wrote in the tweet.

The conflict is said to have occurred after the hotel’s security team denied Mill entry into DJ Mustard’s show. They allegedly threatened to arrest him if he got out of his vehicle.

Mill has been on a straight and narrow path since being released from prison last year, but it seems his criminal history is taunting him as the hotel also claims he has been blacklisted from the property over a previous incident with their security on an undisclosed date.
