Drake Upstages Everybody With The Ultimate Sneak Attack Move
Despite all the major fanfare transpiring in Manhattan tonight with NBA All Star activities and the march to Fashion Week, Drake (who was in attendance at Roc City Classic) may be out for the gusto. Just as he did more than five years ago, Drizzy delivered a mixtape, cleverly titled If You’re Reading This Its Too Late. Released just moments ago, the Cash Money Records 17-track affair hit iTunes (for $12.99). While the media and die hard fans clamored from event-to-event, Drake may be the one who has everybody talking, at the other guys’ events.
Thursday, February 12, 2015 may be a day to remember in Hip-Hop history. In New York City, Kanye West formally launched his Adidas Yeezy, with a high-profile fashion show. Amidst the model choreography and high-brow fashion, Jay Z, Beyonce, Puff Daddy, Rihanna, Anna Wintour, Cassie, Justin Bieber, Russell Simmons, Kim and Khloe Kardashian, along with North West lined the front row.
This event kicked off “Yeezy Season,” as West debuted a new record (“Wolves”) with Vic Mensa and Sia, before Roc City Classic, a Life + Times NYC event, available for live stream, featuring a who’s who of the Roc Nation and G.O.O.D. Music family (Kevin Durant, Travis $cott, Skylar Diggins, Pusha T, Big Sean) and a host of others in the crowd and on stage.
In Madison Square Garden, Puff Daddy (who was sideline at ‘Ye’s late afternoon event) co-headlined a show, with Snoop Dogg. The perceived onetime rivals shared the same exact stage where the Death Row vs. Bad Boy Records beef went public 20 years ago, at the 1995 Source Awards. In a weird twist of irony, the symbolic gesture transpired amidst LAPD spokespersons further implicating Suge Knight in a murder earlier this month.
In a 12 months that’s witnessed Drake challenge Jay Z on the mic, and Kanye in the controversial Rolling Stone interview, and be accosted by Diddy over a beat, is this the ultimate power move? Here’s the full stream.
