Drake receives rave reviews for ESPY Awards performance [Video]


Los Angeles, CA – Full of charisma and confidence, Drake proved ESPN executives right in selecting him as this year’s host for their annual ESPY Awards banquet. Some have already called him the best ESPY host in the award show’s 20+ year history. The OVO boss was front and centre at LA’s Nokia Theater, opening up with a killer monologue a skit that featured Blake Griffin and former arch-nemesis, Chris Brown.

His acting skills were on full display but he also hilariously reverted back to music by introducing some songs like “Honorable Mention,” and the Brian McKnight assisted “Side Pieces.” In “Honorable Mention,” his lyrical abilities shine through as he manages to big up KD (Kevin Durant), show some solidarity with Kendrick Lamar, and diss Macklemore all in one line:

KD, I know you hear me. I know you understand me. Real talent doesn’t always win championships, and real music doesn’t always win Grammys.

He also teamed up with boxing champ Manny Pacquiao for a rendition of “Let It Go,” from the movie Frozen (yeah, that movie had more than one song).

And one of our favourite moments was Drake, decked out in a jersey from Skylar Diggins’ alma mater, Notre Dame, reading a poem he had written for the Tulsa Shock (WBNA) star. It’s a hilarious bit that really highlights Drake’s strong sense of humor. Certainly not something Diggins’ boyfriend (Daniel Smith) will be happy to see.

Check out the highlights below, starting with the opening monologue, and look for more after the jump.

“Lordy, lordy, Michael Jordy”

Black Milk kills Vancouver softly with Nat Turner [Review]


Vancouver, BCBlack Milk has performed in Vancouver a couple of times now and he’s one of few artists I’ve made the effort of seeing more than once. His most recent appearance was at Venue on July 3 to a perfectly packed house — in that I mean you could still move around and get up close to the stage if you wanted.  Opening acts included KIDS, ILL-Legitimate, Attikus and the high-energy rapid-fire lyricism of Northwest Division. The openers killed it, getting the crowd hyped up and buzzing as they waited for Black Milk to take the stage.

For those unfamiliar with Milk, he travels with a live band, Nat Turner – which almost always makes for a better quality of live music. Combine that with his veteran stage presence and delivery and you are pretty much guaranteed a dope experience.
