If you’re unaware, LeBron James has a new unscripted TV series on HBO called The Shop , which finds him and business partner Maverick Carter sitting in a barbershop setting and talking with various celebrities about pretty much anything. Well on Friday night, episode two aired on HBO, and it happened to feature non-other than Toronto rapper Drake , who spoke about a plethora
of things fans have been waiting to hear.

Throughout the 30-minute episode, Drizzy spoke on his beef with Kanye West, saying that 40 went to Wyoming a day early and told him there was something funny going on. He also confirmed that he played Kanye “March 14” and asked him for advice on the situation and that ‘Lift Yourself’ was supposed to be his song.

“I ended up linking with Ye, and he sold me on this whole speech of like, ‘I’m in a great place, I’m making money, and I’m a father, and I wanna be Quincy Jones and help you, but in order to do that, you’ve gotta be transparent with me. And you gotta play me your music, and you gotta tell me when you’re dropping.

And I know you don’t like to do things like that,’” Drake recalled. “And so I was in the studio, guess we all kind of felt a genuine vibe from it. So I play him my music, and I told him when I was dropping.”

“He played me ‘Lift Yourself’ and he was like, ‘Yo, you can have this if you want.’ And I was hype. I started writing to it. And then he was like, ‘Yo, you gotta come to Wyoming.’ So Wyoming happened,” he explained. “And then (producer Noah “40” Shebib) went to Wyoming early, and he was like, ‘Man, I’m here a day early, man.

Something’s off.’ He’s like, ‘This guy is working on an album.’ And I was like, ‘For real? He just told me he wanted to work on, like he just told me he wanted to give me beats.’” He continued: “And he said he wasn’t dropping until like October, November, something like that.

And I’m like, ‘It’s all good, let’s just go, and let’s just see what it’s about.’ So I went and ended up pretty much spending the majority of my time working on his music, just trying to like cook up ideas for him.”

“By the way, Im in Wyoming and I play him ‘March 14th.’ I send him a picture of my son. I tell him I having trouble with my son’s mother. I wake up, and all these dates are out.

Then the next two days, whatever, I wake up now to this text from him, passive like, ‘Yo, I love you brother,’” he recalled. “‘Lift Yourself’ comes out with him just talking nonsense. Oh this guy’s trolling me. This was like a manipulative, like, ‘I wanna break you’ thing. So I said alright. I’m gonna go back to distancing myself again.

I know what this is. Then, the first album drops. And of course there’s a diss song toward me that you produced, that’s talking about writing? I was just there with you as friends helping you, and now you’re dissing me. So I’m like, man, this is dark.”

Then after that, Drake transitioned into talking about Pusha’s diss track, saying that he wasn’t mad about his son coming up or his family, but the line about 40’s MS he felt went too far.

“People love to say, like rap purists and people who just love confrontation, they love to say, ‘Aye there’s no rules in this shit.’ But there are fucking rules in this shit,” he said. “And I’m gonna tell you something: It’s like, I knew something was gonna come up about my kid.

They had to add the deadbeat thing to make it more appealing, which is fine. I understand that. Even that, I was like, OK. The mom and dad thing, whatever. You don’t even know my family. But I’mma tell you, wishing death on my friend that has MS… I study rap battles for a living. Now when you mention defenseless people who are sick in the hospital, that passed away, that really sent me to a place where I just believed then, and believe now, that there’s just a price that you have to pay for that. It’s over. You’re gonna get… someone’s gonna fucking punch you in the fucking face.

The shit’s done, the event’s over. I wanted to do other things. I didn’t wanna further your reputation or your career by rapping back at you and having this exchange. And that was it for me.”

Drizzy also addressed the mysterious diss track he had waiting for Kanye & Pusha T , and why he never released it. “I got home and listened back to it, and I was like man this is not something I want to be remembered for. This is not necessarily a place I want to go. By the way, hell of a chess move.

The song I thought was trash, but the chess move was genius. Back against the wall, I either go all the way filthy or I fall back and I kinda have this chink in my armor for rest of my time to rap purists, which is fine I can live with that. I’Id much rather live with that than the things I was about to say and the research I did against and the places I was gonna go. Not only for him but for the other guy too.”

Ne-Yo Secures $6.4M Bag From Ex-Manager Who Cheated Him Out Of Millions

It seems that Ne-Yo’s former manager was chasing the champagne life a little too much. He now faces up to seven years in prison after fleecing his clients to afford a lifestyle of luxury. On top of his sentence, he was ordered to pay back $7.9 million in restitution with $6,456,250 going to Ne-Yo and $151,675 to Brian McKnight, HotNewHipHop.com reports on Thursday (May 23). He also owes the IRS a whopping $1.4 million.

The final verdict follows a nearly three-year long investigation into the R&B singer’s former accountant and business manager, Kevin Foster, after he was found guilty of a slew of white collar crimes including wire fraud, money laundering and tax evasion by the Department of Justice.

In 2016, a team of federal prosecutors opened an investigation into Foster for tax evasion when he filed bankruptcy for a company he had a controlling stake in. The investigation unearthed he had mislead Ne-Yo and McKnight into investing in his sports drink brand OXYwater under false pretenses.

When Foster’s finances begun to nosedive, he convinced his former clients to invest in OXYwater without informing them of his controlling stake in Imperial company, who owned the sports drink brand.

During the lengthy investigation, federal prosecutors discovered multiple instances where Foster used his position as their manager to withdraw more money from his clients’ accounts (without their permission) to fund his company. The disgraced manager further misappropriated an additional $1.5 million of Ne-Yo’s into the sports beverage without informing him.

He also forged the singer’s signature to open a new line of credit worth $1.4 million. Portions of the stolen funds went toward padding his own lifestyle, with receipts of Foster dropping top dollars on a Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Jaguar and Mercedes, expensive suits, jewelry and Super Bowl tickets.

Earlier this year in February, I published an article entitled “My Tennis Fashion Thoughts.” I discussed the collaborative opportunities that popular designers have within the professional tennis industry, and how such collaborations between players and tennis brands would present a means for players to further express their personalities on the court. Since then, this year has pleasantly surprised me with a number of unexpected collaborations between tennis brands and fashion brands/ designers.

It is evident that this year tennis has shifted to becoming a sport of trends and style. It has drawn attention not just from tennis fans, but from anyone who enjoys fashion and the latest style trends. The success and attention from this year’s collaborations have the potential to propel future ideas and collaborations into motion, forever impacting professional tennis and the tennis culture. Such collaborations would bring more attention and popularity to the game, making it more mainstream and relatable.

In no particular order, here are this year’s top fashion collaborations in the tennis industry.
