And another Jay-Z collaboration is on the horizon. After Raekwon instagrammed a picture of himself and Hove a couple of days ago, another pic of Jay and Drake has now surfaced. The picture was taken by Lenny Santiago, the longtime A&R over at Def Jam and friend of Jay. This caption has been added:

As we know, Drizzy is working on his new album Nothing Was The Same this summer, it is also rumored that Jay-Z is working on a full-length as well. Feel free to speculate below.
As is if this movie could not get any better. After reports came through that Kanye West has joined the all-star cast of Anchorman 2, NY Daily News now delivers the news that Drake is set to be featured in the highly-anticipated movie as well. A first picture from the set has also disappeared and as you can tell above, the '70s look suits him quite well. Stay tuned for more updates on this.
After taking to Instagram to post a photo of Hov & Rae together a few days ago, A&R legend Lenny S posted yet another photo, this time of Hov & Drake with the following message.

Something for Drake’s upcoming Nothing Was Same LP? Or perhaps it’s for Hov’s next solo outing? Let us hear your thoughts.

PREVIOUS: The Making of Drake’s “Girls Love Beyoncé” (Video)
Tamara Saul has been making steady moves within the European R&B circuit since the release of her Neon Nights EP. Its title track was featured on BBC Radio 1 on #R1Review and serves as an indicator of what this up-and-coming songstress from Zagreb, Croatia has in store for us. Take her latest creation "Biggie Say My Name (Girls Love Beyonce Bootleg)" for instance, where Tamara interprets Drake and James Fauntleroy's single while also serenading the legacy of the late and great The Notorious B.I.G. And while you're at it, also have a listen to Ta-Ku's version of the song as well.
Remember Lil Wayne's plan to release Devol -- an album that only consists of love songs? Well, it appears that this project is finally coming to fruition. In a conversation with MTV's Sway Calloway, he said:
“I do still plan on dropping that. I’m very excited about that album. I know ya’ll probably like, ‘I don’t want to hear no love songs according to [Wayne].’ But I’m talented. [Birdman] let me do whatever I want to do, so I’m putting that album out, ya dig.”
Moreover, Tunechi also confirmed another Big Tymers album. However, don't expect Mannie Fresh, but rather Birdman teaming up with Drake and Wayne for this one. A sequel to Baby and Weezy’s 2006 sequel album Like Father, Like Son is also in the works. And we know, Mannie is busy in the studio with Yasiin Bey.
While down in Miami, Florida over the weekend, MTV had the opportunity to catch up with Young Money's Lil Wayne. Here we note Weezy speaking on what is rumored to be his final album, The Carter V. Fortunately, however, it isn't expected to arrive any time soon, as Wayne and company have several album possibilities in the works, one of which being a Big Tymers reunion, welcoming along YMCMB golden child, Drake. Will this actually come to fruition? Only time will tell. But one thing is for certain, that would be pretty crazy. Stay tuned for more.
October's Very Own releases a clip of Drake in a studio session for "Girls Love Beyoncé.” Aborting the blackberry approach, Drake sings a melody with rough lyrics from memory to see what James Fauntleroy thinks. Afterwards, Drake turns to the vaporizer for some creative assistance. Drake's new album, Nothing Was The Same, is set for release this summer.
Stemming from his days on DeGrassi: The Next Generation, Drake is no stranger to the small screen. Set up by his Young Money label mate, Nicki Minaj, the platinum-selling artist made a special guest appearance on American Idol, surprising contestant Candice Glover who had just finished performing his song, "Find Your Love." While an audio message from Drizzy plays overhead, he steps out from behind the scenes to congratulate and embrace the singer. To see her reaction, check out the video above.
Thanks to Gabe Oshin.
Drake recently dropped off his James Fauntleroy-assisted ode to BaddieBey with his "Girls Love Beyoncé" single, and now 20-year-old producer JAYBeatz has taken it upon himself to mashup Beyoncé's vocals onto the new tune. Replacing Fauntleroy's chorus, which stems from Destiny's Child's "Say My Name," the North Carolina-based beatmaker provides a solid recreation, giving listeners a better idea of what the track would have sounded like had Drizzy got Mrs. Knowles on the original. Stream and/or download the song below and let know how you feel about this one.
