Drake Briefly Weighs In On His Hot 100 Streak's End

The re-up is apparently on the way.

Since Drake traded in his acting career to pursue his music dreams, he's broken records within the industry including the Billboard charts. Since his debut with "Best I Ever Had" in 2009, his melodies have found a comfy home on the Billboard Hot 100 charts for 431 weeks -- in his words -- back to back to back.

Earlier this week, news broke that the Toronto native fell off the charts, leading to a mass of headlines that promoted the news. Now, TMZ caught up with the OVO leader to get his reaction to the matter. While the "Controlla" rapper left TAO in Hollywood, the site's cameras picked up Drizzy's retort, stating, "I need 500," alluding to the notion that he's about to swarm the web with new tunes to restart his charts run.

At the top of the month, the 30-year-old reportedly hinted at a new body of work during his OVO Fest performance.

"I'm about to go back to making this new album in Toronto just for you," he said. "I'll see you next year, we'll be bigger, we'll be better. I go by the name of Drake, this a OVO Sound ting for life." Only time will tell.

Alabama Newspaper Editor Calls On KKK To Lynch Democrats In Washington D.C.

The editor of a fledgling Alabama newspaper made news after he penned an editorial pleading for the KKK to “night ride again.” Goodloe Sutton, editor and publisher of the Democrat-Reporter, a small weekly paper in Linden, Ala., doubled down on his racism in an interview Monday (Feb. 18).

"If we could get the Klan to go up there and clean out D.C., we'd all been better off," he told the Montgomery Advertiser. "We'll get the hemp ropes out, loop them over a tall limb and hang all of them.”

Sutton added that he’s not asking for “Americans”  to be lynched. “These are socialist-communists we’re talking about.” He also compared the KKK to the NAACP. “They didn’t kill but a few people. The Klan wasn’t violent until they need to be.”

In his editorial, Sutton lashed out against Democrats in the Republican party for “plotting to raise taxes in Alabama.”

“They do not understand how to eliminate expenses when money is needed in other areas,” he wrote. “The socialist-communist ideology sounds good to the ignorant, the uneducated, and the simple-minded people.”

Later in the piece Sutton put a bird call out to the KKK. “If you haven’t noticed, they did away with the draft so their sons would not have to go into battle. Seems like the Klan would be welcome to raid the gated communities up there.

Sutton’s editorial is obviously catching backlash and calls for his resignation. The Alabama Press Association’s Board of Director’s condemned Sutton and suspended the newspaper’s membership. Auburn University’s Journalism Advisory Council voted to revoke his award in community journalism and the University of Southern Mississippi took him off their Journalism Hall of Fame.

Sutton's paper is doing so badly that he was forced to move the publication to an old barbecue restaurant. This new round of publicity could officially put the paper out of its misery.

After nearly a 15-year hiatus from the music industry, Kareem "Biggs" Burke is back with a new music company called Circle of Success. To kick the newly-launched business off right, Burke has already announced his first signee, Brooklyn-based artist, SAINt JHN.

Circle of Success is a management company that oversees musicians. In an interview with Billboard on Feb. 19, Biggs discussed his new venture and artist.  "The night [Roc Nation co-founder Tyran Smith], played a preview of SAINt JHN's new album, I drove home listening to Collection One and had an immediate sonic connection to his music," Burke said.

The Roc-A-Fella cofounder also addressed his new company on Instagram, noting that it was his first time backing an artist since Kanye West nearly 20 years ago. "The last 2 projects I’ve done was College Dropout and Late Registration," he wrote. "After such a long time away I’ve decided to jump back in with someone who I believe will be equally as impactful and change the game and be a HUGE brand with the music being the core of the business. @saintjhn made the decision easy for me because it’s very rare you come across talent like his. I’m BACK!!!!"
