BREAKING NEWS: Drake Get His Wig Pushed Back

YMCMB rapper Drake sophomore album, entitled Take Care has been pushed back from October 24th to November 15th. So far, Drake completed 19 songs for the album and is having some issues with clearing samples, which is the reason why the album was pushed back. Drake took to his official blog OVO to make the announcement. Peep what Drake said below:

The new date for Take Care is November 15th, 2011. I managed to create this album in my hometown of Toronto and the thoughts and stories I wanted to get across just became so clear. It truly felt like when I was here 3 years ago making So Far Gone. So I have completed 19 songs (17 on physical and 2 on bonus), and have run into a roadblock of clearing 3 samples in time to make the October 24th date. My options were to take the songs off and make the birthday release happen, or to take an extra couple weeks to get the paper work right and give you the album they way I NEED you to hear it. The choice was clear as day for me. November 15th you will get Take Care the exact way I created it with no trimmings. This music means too much to me to get attached to dates and I do apologize for the delay but I promise that it is only for the benefit of our experience together. Club Paradise Tour will also be moved to when students are back from the Christmas/New Year break so that I can get to more schools. New dates will be released in the next week…see you all soon.”

Picture Me Dope: The Notorious B.I.G. & Junior Mafia Rolling-Up On The Stoop In Brooklyn Back In The 90’s

Smoking blunts was a daily routine since 13.” Biggie Smalls

Christopher Wallace a.k.a. The Notorious B.I.G. was more than a rapper, many people consider him to be one of the greatest MC’s to ever pick up the mic or spit a 16. On March 9, 1997,  The Notorious B.I.G was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles. 14 years later, we’re still celebrating the life of The Notorious B.I.G.

Most MC’s who came out in the 90′s and beyond owe respect to the “Player President.” He lived Notorious and was the Black Frank White. How can we ever forget “Big Poppa” with classics like “Juicy” and “Who Shot Ya”? Not only was he a Black male that was stereotyped, he was also misunderstood, but no matter what, he always rep his Brooklyn hood.
