Kanye West & Drake Teases Collaboration Album At OVO Fest 2016

Yeezy & Drizzy may be teaming up for something collosal. 

Day two of Drake's annual OVO Fest was held in Toronto last night (August 1), and Drizzy continued to roll out surprise guest after surprise guest.

After appearances and performances by French Montana, Popcaan, and Rihanna (for the second day in a row no less), the 6 God decided to press the 'Ye button. Kanye West rose from below the stage through a dense fog to blow concert attendees' collective minds. This marks the second year in a row where Kanye has been a guest performer. Also, just recently (July 27), he came out during Drake's Summer Sixteen Tour stop in Yeezy's hometown of Chicago.

The vibes were different last night however. In Chicago, Kanye addressed his ongoing feud with Taylor Swift, but last night, the only focus was on music. Before rolling into his Life Of Pablo hit "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1," Yeezy made a very special announcement.

Kanye teased the crowd by stating, “Is y’all ready for this album?” Stopping the music right before the drop of the song, then he clarified that he wasn’t talking about his solo album The Life of Pablo or the other album that he has been talking up recently Turbo Grafx 16. Instead when he asked the crowd the question a second time, he pointed clearly at Drake, insinuating a collaboration album between the two super stars may be in the works and on the way.

You may not remember but a Yeezy x Drizzy collab album isn't a new thing. In an interview back in 2015 with The Breakfest Club, Kanye told them that the song "Wolves" was inspired by discussions the pair had about collaborating.

"The 'Wolves' song came from a conversation that me and Drake had, when was gonna do an album together, and the album was called Wolves," Kanye said.

Fans who attended the festival last night tweeted out that Drake later confirmed the joint album, saying, “And what he was asking, was are you ready if we made an album.”

Kanye ended up performing a couple of his largest hits yesterday. He performed his verse from the Drake banger "Pop Style" while also finding time to do "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1," "Famous," and long time hit single "Runaway."

Watch some footage from the incredible night of music below and get ready for what could be the biggest collab album since Kanye and Jay Z teamed up for Watch the Throne.

Tone Loc Detained After Confronting Family Over Confederate Flag Hat

West Coast rapper Tone Loc was reportedly detained at the Midland International Air & Space Port in Texas on Sunday (Mar. 24). He was reportedly handcuffed by airport security after aggressively confronting the parents of a teenage boy who was wearing a Confederate flag hat, CBS7 reports.

The incident reportedly started when the 53-year-old– born Anthony Terrell Smith– confronted a teenager who was wearing the controversial hat at baggage claim.

"How are you going to wear that in front of a black man?" Loc asked the boy, according to witnesses.

The teenage boy's parents reportedly stepped in and reprimanded the rapper for talking to their son in such an aggressive tone. The rapper apologized but continued to state that the boy should not be wearing the hat.

The argument didn't stop there though. The family and Loc continued the heated altercation outside. In a video obtained by an NBC affiliate, the "Wild Thing" artist could be heard shouting: "F**k all that Confederate sh*t."

Authorities were later called to the scene where they separated both parties and detained Loc. Once the situation de-escalated, the handcuffs were removed, and Loc was permitted to leave. No criminal charges were filed.

Watch a clip of the incident below.

Rico Nasty To Release 'Anger Management' LP In April

Rico Nasty allowed much time to go by without new music. Since the release of her debut album Nasty last year, the rapper has released a steady amount of singles and slayed guest spots on tracks with Doja Cat and Amine. Now the 21-year-old is ready to drop another LP perfectly titled, Anger Management. 

On Sunday (March 24), Rico hopped on Instagram Live to share the news. A date hasn't been put in place but she assured that the project will "probably come out in April." Like many of her projects, Rico will team up with producer extraordinaire Kenny Beats. Rico revealed how she wants fans "to really enjoy it" as she will jump into different sounds and styles.

From what Rico disclosed in her Instagram Live, Anger Management will feature guest spots from Earthgang and "Intro part 2" rapper Splurge.

The "Countin' Up'" artist has always been unique in her style and comfortable in her own skin. Nasty, which was featured on our EOY lists last year, showed how successful Rico is at mixing trap and pop. Seems like fans can expect the same magic this time around.

Rico was most recently at SXSW and will perform at Coachella in April.
