Royce returns with another freestyle and it’s off the chain.
He jumps on Big Sean’s “Moves” and Dave East’s “No Hook,” and annihilates in a new 6-minute freestyle titled “Let’s Take Them to War.”
Though Eminem described Royce’s recent freestyles as “devastating,” “Let’s Take Them To War” is probably his best release of 2017 so far. Maybe the mix is better. Maybe it’s the very rare Tom Chambers reference. Any way you slice it, Royce went all the way in. The rampage continues.
Toronto rap superstar, Drake has shattered is for the highest-grossing Hip Hop tour for his Summer Sixteen Tour with Future.
Drake grossed $84.3 million over 56 shows in 38 cities between July 20 and October 8, according to numbers from Pollstar. The average show on the tour drew a crowd of 19,793 fans who paid an average ticket price of $112.08. In total, there were 752,141 tickets sold.
The numbers would’ve been higher if not for an ankle injury that sidelined Drake from the last six shows of the tour.
Despite breaking the all-time record for Hip Hop, Drizzy just missed cracking the Top 10 out of all genres for 2016, coming in at #11. Beyoncé came in at #2 for 2016 by grossing $256.2 million with her Formation Tour’s 49 shows, while Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band took the top spot with a tour that grossed $268.3 million over 76 shows.
Kanye West’s Saint Pablo Tour was the second-highest grossing Hip Hop tour of 2016, pulling in $52.8 million over 41 shows to land at the 29 spot.
Kanye had previously held the record with Jay Z for their Watch The Throne Tour over 2011 and 2012.
Drake’s now prepping to head back on road for his European tour, which kicks off in Amsterdam on January 21 and ends in Cologne on March 16.
Drake’s promoted the upcoming tour by saying “special guests” will be announced, although Young Thug has strongly hinted at his own inclusion on Instagram.
Bryson Tiller may be an enigma, but he’s finally starting to let us into his world!
Currently on his sold-out “Trap Soul Tour,” Pen Griffey made a stop at Orlando’s Power 95.3 and sat down with radio personality Aladdin to discuss all the burning questions fans have been wanting answers to.
The first thing learned in his interview is that it’s going to be rare to find any Tiller interviews online during his career. When asked why he doesn’t like to do video interviews, or really any interviews at all in general, Bryson replied simply: “I just don’t like to be all over the internet. When I look up some of my favorite artists, I just hate seeing like the same interview over and over again. Why not just give like one interview that’s special?”
During the chat he details how it was just a mere coincidence that he had the chance to meet Timbaland through a mutual friend — his barber. He also discusses how a few of the extra songs written for Trap Soul that didn’t make the cut, landed him a writing placement on Chris Brown’s latest album Royalty. He admitted that he wants to collab with some of today’s greats including J. Cole, Kanye West, The-Dream, and Jazmine Sullivan. A collaboration with any of those artists would definitely be dope!
Aladdin even got Tiller to talk about how his early life in Kentucky living with his Grandma, after the passing of his mother, helped to shape his musical taste and artistic sound. He cites The-Dream and T-Pain as major influences from his childhood and he loves the sound of R&B influenced by Hip-Hop the two of them created.
