Hey guys, Im back and better than ever with the most up to date entertainment news with a dab of my perspective! Well, while I was scrolling down my timeline I came across a post Drake made that seems to provide his fans the title of his up coming album and the date of release!  

In the picture its Drake wearing an all black varsity type jacket, Drake has his back to the camera so all you can see is the back of the jacket which states “Scorpion” then under it states “June Twenty Eighteen” and lastly ending with “By Drake”.

I am not surprised by this post for Drake has released two singles for which his fans can assume will be featured on a new album. The first single “God’s Plan”, dropped a couple months ago, that documented him traveling around the city of Miami blessing people with the million dollar budget he was supposed to had spent for the video.

Then just almost two weeks ago he dropped another single titled “Nice For What” that gives me that New Orleans bounce feeling, and I swear I heard a Big Freedia sample. What makes the video to this song so special is instead of Drake using the normal formula, women shaking their asses, oh no! Drake was actually celebrating powerful and successful women, for example, Rashida Jones, Olivia Wilde, Tracey Ellis Ross and more.

I do wonder what Drake has planned for this album, which is titled the name of his horoscope, Scorpio. After these two singles, which both provided a message, I have a feeling that the rest of this album will continue with this vibe. What ever has inspired Drake to come thru with such positive images during this time of the “Me Too” movement and women big ups lately, provides his fans with a refreshing sound, but still worthy to be played in the club type of music.

LA Clippers Tease Quavo With A 10 Day Contract

 

The LA Clippers teased Quavo with a 10 day contract after becoming 2018’s NBA Celebrity Game MVP!!

On Dj Vlad site, they caught Balleralert comment creeping up under Quavo’s twitter post, and pointed out how the L.A. Clippers commented “We got that 10 day contract for you when ever your ready”

This type of announcement should not come off as no surprise for Quavo scored an amazing 19 points during the game that led to his team winning the game! Quavo Huncho had 7-10 FG, 5 rebounds with 3 assists! He almost knocked NBA 2K host, Rachel DeMita, out her shoes when he blocked her shot!

Quavo, being the talk of the night, was so excited about his win that he even brought his MVP trophy out with him to The Beats By Dre party!

Being a major fan of the Migos, I been knew that Quavo was very athletic & during his down time he stays active by continuing to play sports. Quavo, whose real name is, Quavious Marshall, was the starting quarterback for Berkmar High School. During his high school years Quavo led the county in passing yards and set game records.

According to Bleacherreport Quavo’s former coach, John Thompson, believed Quavo was a great player and was quoted as saying “He was a joy to coach; he made it fun,” Thompson adds. “The thing they all had to learn was that for me, to be on time you have to be five minutes early. Quavious would always walk in exactly five minutes early and smile that little grin he has: ‘Coach, I’m here!’ I think sometimes he did it just to aggravate me, but he was always there. He was a prankster.”

Even though the LA Clippers were making a joke, they know that if Quavo was not a part of the Migos, he will prolly take the deal! While watching the game I thought Chris Brown was going to be the show off for the game, like he usually do! SIKE!! Quavo proved me wrong!

I do believe that once the Migos reach a certain level of fame, Quavo will return back to his roots and will start a little league team like Snoop Dogg did years ago. When you’re blessed with talent, its only right to spread those blessings back to our youth for they are our future!!

VIOLATION FREESTYLE OUT NOW @offsetyrn 📸: @rivetingentertainment

A post shared by KING CONTENT (@oggizery_june) on

According to Complex, as of Monday, Culture 2 sessions had wrapped up and tracks have been forwarded for mixing. No mention of the track list yet, but we can assume that “Motorsport” featuring Nicki Minaj & Cardi B, and the new club single produced by Pharrell “Stir Fry” will be included on the album.

As for who will be producing the album we will have to wait patiently for that until then Quavo did deny rumors of Kanye West being a guest producer. Well, I am so proud of the Migos, they also are nominated for “Best Rap Album of The Year” catagory for the 2018 60th Grammy awards which will airing live on January 28th at 7:30pm eastern. I also had the pleasure of interviewing hot producer Cash Clay Beats in December regarding being Grammy nominated for his contribution to the album on the single “Kelly Price“.

Make sure to keep up with the station blog to watch out for Culture 2 updates!!!

Beyonce x Coachella Announces 2018 Festival Dates

beyonce-ivy-park

Beyoncé officially has her first tour dates for 2018 set: Coachella just announced its festival dates for next year. The two-weekend music and arts festival will take place from Friday, April 13, through Sunday, April 15, and Friday April 20 through Sunday, April 22, respectively.

The “Formation” singer was originally a 2017 Coachella headliner, but after announcing that she’s pregnant with twins in February, she had to cancel her appearance (despite delivering a show-stopping performance at the Grammys). To make up for her unexpected cancellation, Beyoncé signed on as a headliner for 2018.

Because of Beyoncé’s move, fans who plan to attend next year’s fest already know one headliner they’ll get to see, which isn’t typically the case with Coachella. Even with lineups being announced long after tickets go on sale, passes sell out at a rapid pace — so with someone like Queen B confirmed for the bill, better act fast if you want to be there.

Advance tickets for Coachella 2018 will be available starting June 2 at 11 a.m. PT.
