Drizzy was all the way live in Dallas, Texas as his “Would You Like A Tour” rolled into town.

Take a look at how it all went down in front of a sold out crowd.
Drake’s Would You Like A Tour? officially started last night as the YMCMB rapper decided to bless fans in Pittsburgh with the first show. Here’s some footage of the Canadian native and former Degrassi actor performing “Worst Behaviour,” “305 To My City,” “All Me” and “Started From The Bottom” featured on his new album Nothing Was The Same.

Curren$y releases his latest single titled “442” featuring his former Cash Money bosses Lil Wayne and Birdman. The New Orleans rapper effortlessly laces the song’s infectious and soulful instrumental which is provided courtesy of Jet Life affiliates Monsta Beatz. Listen as Spitta gives the track a muscle car theme by dropping rhymes about Oldsmobile’s classic 442 model. Weezy and Birdman also deliver their respective verses but do little to outshine Curren$y on his turf.
Aubrey is in his feelings with the undisputed auto-tune champ Future after the rapper-singer made some questionable remarks to Billboard (the comments have since been removed) during an interview about Drake’s recent Nothing Was The Same LP. At one point Future stated to Billboard, “Drake made an album that is full of hits but it doesn’t grab you. They’re not possessive; they don’t make you feel the way I do.” It looks like Drake wasn’t happy with what he read as Future’s comments have now landed him off Drizzy’s upcoming “Would You Like A Tour?” which is set to begin on Friday in Pittsburgh. Obviously not happy about losing his lucrative spot on the music tour, Future has countered the YMCMB rapper by suing him for $1.5 million. The auto-tune champ has since been replaced by songstress Jhené Aiko who took to Instagram to announce the news to her fans but quickly removed the posting following it’s initial appearance.
Over the weekend Compton bred rapper The Game was handed his first Cash Money chain by YMCMB artist Tyga in front of a sold out crowd at Irvine’s Verizon Wireless Amphitheater for the “How The West Was Won” concert.

The California native eventually took to his Twitter account the same day he was chained and confirmed to everyone that the news was legit.

DJ Ill Will liberates some new Lil Wayne music with “Original Silence” featuring Mack Maine. In typical Weezy fashion, the Cash Money rapper spits familiar bars about his lavish lifestyle, love of money, blood gang affiliation and lets it be known his heat comes equipped with a silencer for the haters. Mack backs Lil Tunechi with “killer” raps of his own. No word yet on where the new leak will end up but for now take a listen to “Original Silence” which also comes with a download option.
