Drake
The Toronto Raptors do not love them some Meek Mill. In fact, they have banned his music because of his rivalry with Drake.

The Raptors' James Johnson and Patrick Patterson spoke with Complex Sports about the team's love for the Toronto-born rapper when the team was in London, England for an NBA global game.

It looks like if you are Drake's enemy, you are the Raptors' enemy too.

Have you had to put a ban on Meek Mill?
Patrick Patterson: Oh yeah, Meek Mill has been banned for a long time. No one plays Meek Mill.

Ouch. Sorry, Meek Mill. At least, Nicki Minaj still likes you.

It's On! Meek Mill Disses Drake Again!

40 Best Songs Of 2015

40 Best Songs Of 2015
It’s a tall task to pick the best albums in any given year, specifically when it comes to ranking them. Even more difficult is selecting the best songs as the music industry is much more record/song-centric than it was once was. Even when albums (exception: Adele’s 25) don’t sell, songs do. There were lots and lots of notable songs from 2015, so narrowing the list to 40 is an arduous task. As arduous as it was, here’s our best shot – 40 of the Best Songs of 2015.

Toronto Politician And Raptors Mascot Dance To 'Hotline Bling' F
Once every year the Toronto Raptors honor their fearless leader, Drake, with his own night.

November 25 is Drake's night.

On of the perks of Drake night is free Drake stuff, like lint rollers and t-shirts, which later sell on Ebay for thousands of dollars.

This year, in addition to watching LeBron James destroy the team, ticket holders are able to film their own 'Hotline Bling' video. The Raptors mascot, Raptor and Toronto politician Norm Kelly were the first to try it out.

11 Sexy Songs – Songs With Sexually Driven Lyrics
Get prepared folks for the sexiest songs ever – said no one ever. Any form of the word sex doesn’t leave much room for substance, as it literally “is what it is.” These supposedly sexy songs all have pleasure in mind, and not just your listening pleasure! Here are 11 sexy songs – supposedly!

Selena Gomez Fends Off The Game For Top Spot

Selena Gomez Takes ‘Revival’ To No. 1 On The Billboard 200
Selena Gomez did it once again – debut in the number one spot on the Billboard 200. Enough folks were ‘revived’ by Gomez’s Revival to propel the pop artist’s fifth album overall (second solo album) to the penthouse. Overall, Revival impacted to the tune of 117,000 units, which is respectable. That said, only about 73% of that total (85,000 copies) is sales excluding streaming and tracks. Previous album Stars Dance was a stronger seller.

Even with Gomez padding her totals with streaming and tracks, Gomez would’ve still edged the other frontrunner for the top spot, The Game. The Game still...

Verdict From Drake And Serena About Engagement, Marriage Rumors:
Unless you've been too busy waiting for the world to end, the news that Drake proposed to Serena Williams probably slipped by you. Yea, it's like that; Drizzy supposedly popped the question to the world's No.1 women's singles tennis player, and she said "yes!" Both were tight-lipped about the latest rumors, and Twitter went bonkers over this Drake and Serena engagement thing. But according to the rapper's camp, it didn't go down like that.

Musicians have been “throwing shade” at each other for years – understatement. In fact, before it was known colloquially as throwing shade, the esteemed classical composers were literally ripping each other apart with their harsh critiques of one another.

Drake And Future Take Top Honors

Drake And Future Take ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ To No. 1
Lana Del Rey could practically taste her second no. 1 album – that is until Drake and Future totally ‘killed her vibe’ with surprise mixtape, What A Time To Be Alive. Expectedly, the superstar hip-hop collaboration was too much for the moody, alt-pop singer to overcome. In other words, her Honeymoon in the ‘penthouse’ wasn’t meant to be. Okay, okay, enough puns!

Drake and Future took top honors on the Billboard 200, to the tune of 375,000 units – WOW! This doesn’t outpace Drake’s earlier no. 1 album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late or the juggernaut that was The Weeknd’s Beauty Behin...

On Sunday, September 21, Drake and Future gave the music industry a gift – a collaborative mixtape. Two of the biggest triumphs in 2015 have come at the hands of Drake and Future. Future’s DS2 didn’t come anywhere close to Drake’s numbers with If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, but the rapper had the biggest debut of his career and scored his first number one album. Furthermore with their respective albums, the two MCs have had some staying power on the charts. This makes a collaborative mixtape something of a godsend, hence the gargantuan numbers.

The Weeknd Makes It Three Weeks At No. 1 On Billboard
For a third consecutive week, The Weeknd keeps the top spot on the Billboard 200 piping hot. Well, perhaps the 99,000 units that Beauty Behind The Music moved this week isn’t ‘the second coming’ but The Weeknd definitely has a good thing going for him. Three weeks in, Beauty Behind The Madness has moved around 655,000 units. Pure sales are less robust eliminating streaming and tracking from the formula, but still Beauty Behind The Madness is putting up some sales numbers as well – impressive!

Yes the Billboard 200 is putting more emphasis on the ‘total package’ or the 195K number cited first, but with albums selling so poorly, selling 172,000 copies itself is notable achievement.
