Bey’s “Formation World Tour” is her first solo run since 2013’s “Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.” In 2014, however, she did a joint tour with her husband Jay Z, who coincidentally, is DJ Khaled’s new manager at Roc Nation.

As Khaled preps his run with Queen Bey, which starts April 27 in his hometown of Miami, the producer is also working on a new album called Major Key, which he says is coming soon.

Report: ILoveMakonnen No Longer Signed to OVO Sound

ILoveMakonnen 4.19.2016 New Music News Report: ILoveMakonnen No Longer Signed to OVO Sound

ILoveMakonnen is no longer repping OVO. A source has revealed that the “Tuesday” hitmaker has cut ties with Drake’s OVO Sound label, according to Billboard.

Things seemed to be all good in March of this year, when the rapper-singer said a compilation project featuring all of OVO’s stars had been recorded. “A collaboration album? I can’t say too much,” he said. “It exists. We’ll just see when it comes out.”

However, it’s unclear when his relationship with OVO ended. His latest project, March’s Drink More Water 6, was released via Warner Bros. Records and without OVO Sound.

That same month, Makonnen told The FADER that his relationship with the label was simply that of an artist and imprint. “It’s cool,” he said. “They put out my music and stuff and we just keep it moving. Let them tell you their relationship with Makonnen. I’m just an artist, being an artist, and there’s only so much that I can do.”

Despite that news, things are still going up on a Tuesday for ILoveMakonnen, who just announced the upcoming “Red Dragon Based God Tour” with Lil B. In a SoundCloud post celebrating the run, the ex-OVO star called the Based God a “friend,” “brother,” “mentor,” “superstar,” and “the legend” he aspires to be.

To celebrate the announcement, the duo released a new single, “Can’t Let It Go,” which can be heard below.

New Music: Jim Jones feat. A$AP Ferg – ‘Harlem’

Harlem 4 hours ago New Music New Music: Jim Jones feat. A$AP Ferg – ‘Harlem’

Jim Jones is back in “Harlem.” Shortly after revealing his star-studded “Finesse” single, the Dipset spitter returns with a hometown anthem featuring fellow Harlem rhymer, A$AP Ferg.

The track takes a page out Future’s book with Jones saying he “fucked your bitch in some Jordan flip-flops.” Ferg continues the chorus’ theme, saying he did the same in adidas flip-flops. Through their verses, Jimmy brags about his old drug dealing days while the Trap Lord name-checks other Harlem rappers, including Cam’ron and Ma$e.

“Harlem” is the second back-to-back Ferg/Jones collaboration following last week’s “Finesse.” That joint also featured Desiigner and Rich Homie Quan. Both tracks could very well end up being on Jimmy’s next project, The Kitchen.

Take a short trip to “Harlem” below.

3 hours ago Music Videos Video: G-Eazy feat. Chris Brown & Tory Lanez – ‘Drifting’

G-Eazy is making movies. At least that seems to be the aim with the Bay Area rapper’s new cinematic video for “Drifting,” which features Chris Brown and Tory Lanez.

The Daniel CZ-directed clip starts with film-like typography as if it’s a new movie trailer. Produced by Riveting Entertainment, the visual features Gerald, Lanez, and Breezy rapping and singing about relationships that have gone sour as lovely ladies lay in bed sporting lingerie.

“That’s the biggest song in the world,” G-Eazy told Rap-Up TV. “I made the song with Tory Lanez and then Chris heard it, and he jumped on it and that’s a game changer.”

“Drifting” can be found on G-Eazy’s When It’s Dark Out, an album that he’ll be promoting on “The Endless Summer Tour” with Logic, YG, and Yo Gotti, which launches in June.

Watch “Drifting” below.

Dame Dash Says He Could Have Saved Aaliyah’s Life

Aaliyah and Damon Dash 1 hour ago News Dame Dash Says He Could Have Saved Aaliyah’s Life

Fifteen years after Aaliyah’s untimely death at 22, Damon Dash is opening up about the beloved singer’s tragic passing.

During his visit to “The Real,” the Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder was asked if there was a chance he would have been on the plane with his then-girlfriend at the time of her death. “There is no chance that if I was there, we would have been on that plane,” he said. “It would’ve never happened that way.”

Aaliyah and eight other passengers died after their small airplane crashed during takeoff while returning from Abaco Island in the Bahamas. She was there to shoot a music video.

“If I was there, I would have made sure that that jet that was supposed to be for her, the G4, she would have been on that,” he added. “I wouldn’t have gotten on that plane. It probably would have been different.”

Watch Dame reflect on Aaliyah’s final days in “The Real” interview below.
