Drake wasn't kidding when he said this would be a very good week for his fans. After giving Khaled the okay to drop "Started From The Bottom" remix "No New Friends," he sneaks in a new track using Fauntleroy's Cocaine 80s strategy. Looks like the road to Drake's forthcoming effort Nothing Was The Same is officially in sight.
Stream the "Say My Name" sampled "Girls Love Beyonce" below, which capitalizes on a scientifically proven fact. We DO love her!

Drake's latest vent "5AM In Toronto" was so nice lyrically, even his biggest and most hilarious naysayer Big Ghost couldn't find much to hate on. Now the OVO general releases a visual to accompany the unofficial single, which shows him out with his team at what looks like... 5AM in Toronto.

Drake can probably coast off of his hit "Started From The Bottom" until his album Nothing Was The Same drops, but it looks like he's got something to prove as he rips into Boi-1da & Vinylz's production "5AM In Toronto."

"Poetic Justice" may be the most commercial/radio friendly track on good kid, m.A.A.d city, but leave it to Kendrick Lamar and his TDE family to take the record to a deeper level with powerful visuals. Watch the video below as Drake is ignorant to the tragedy that just hit his Club Paradise Tour peer.

This video dropped before Drake took home the Grammy for Rap Album of the Year, but the honor makes "Started From The Bottom" even more fitting. "HYFR" was a pretty hilarious video, but this may take the cake as Drake gets upgraded from a stockboy to night manager to superstar while bringing his friends up with him.

It was originally rumored that Drake would be releasing this track on Grammy night, but it seems like there's been enough waiting. Stream his new single "Started From The Bottom" below, and check out his letter to his fans that coincided with the release:
My good friends,
It has truly been too long. I assume you're all keeping well and making the most of this year that has been given to us. Today is the day to begin sharing my newest work with you. This is the first single off of my upcoming album. I feel sometimes that people don't have enough information about my beginnings and therefore they make up a life story for me that isn't consistent with actual events. My family and my second family (consisting of the best friends anybody could ever have) all struggled and worked extremely hard to make all this happen. I did not buy my way into this spot and it was the furthest thing from easy to achieve. I am proud of every part of my past and I'm excited for this song to find a place in your life as well. I didn't feel I needed any interviews or radio or press to launch this song. It felt right to come back to the site that I started on and release it to the people that started here with me. Judging by this post, the tour that we've been planning, the conversations about new songs and album artwork...I think it's safe to say we're back together again. Looking forward to seeing you all soon.
"You don't have to ask me how I'm doing...just listen to the music" - K.Samir
Drake's trademark dark formula blended with a west coast sound and a club ready hook. Sounds like a hit to me.

I took a little sabbatical from blogging late last year to shift my focus a little more from reporting what kind of music was out there to creating. While I plan to continue sharing great music with all my loyal G's out there, look forward to more mixes which I intend to make better with each and every edition.
During my brief break, I put together The Re-Up, which a lot of people seemed to enjoy and pass around. Since it's the weekend it's the perfect time to give this a spin and take a nice, healthy shot of Turnup juice. Check out the rest of the repertoire on Mixcloud and be sure to let your support be known!

There were rumors that Future and Drake had some bad blood after their collab on "Tony Montana," but it seems all is well as the two collab over a Mike Will production on "Fo Real." Look for Future's Free Band Gang: The Movie to hit the net in two days on 1.13.

If this song sounds familiar to you, take a listen to the closing track on Colin Munroe's mixtape Unsung Hero and you'll realize why. Recorded in 2010 as a potential track for Drake's debut album Thank Me Later, the previously unreleased collaboration surfaced over the weekend, which also features a verse from the beautiful Dawn Richard. I think this should've made the cut. Do you?

Thank you, Ashton Kutcher. Thank you, MTV.
No, I'm not accepting an MTV Movie Award (Performance highlights coming soon). I'm thanking them for this elaborate prank pulled on Drake that completely made my day. Watch below how he responds to a fake earthquake while thinking he's in custody of the secret service.
