Drake & Chris Brown Are Doing a Skit at the ESPYs

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Newly minted besties and Eskimo Brothers for life Drake and Chris Brown will be joined by Clippers star Blake Giffin for a comedy sketch on tonight’s ESPYs broadcast. TMZ got their hands on a behind the scenes shot of Drake and Blake on set and they have some details about what the skit will entail.

Here’s what we know from the rehearsals … the skit begins in a law office, then a locker room and finally in a dentist’s office with Clippers star Blake Griffin standing over Drake like Steve Martin in “Little Shop of Horrors.”

We’re told … Blake looks like he’s about to go in deep, when a frightened Drake blurts out, “Are you really going to do this?” Then — suddenly — Chris walks in and answers, “No, I am!”

I feel like Rihanna is somewhere right now making this face:

The ESPYs air tonight at 9 EST on ESPN. UPDATED: Watch the sketch here plus several other highlights from the ESPYS.

The New Drake Album Will be Called Views From The 6

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014


With a new press release promoting his hosting gig at the ESPYs tomorrow night, OVOFest and the Drake vs. Lil Wayne Tour, Drake announced the title of his 4th studio album. He is expected to start working on the new project, Views From The 6, when he gets back from the tour with Wayne, which kicks off at the beginning of August and ends September 27th.

As for the meaning of the album title, your guess is as good as anybody’s but as Billboard speculates, it’s likely a reference to Toronto’s 416 and 647 area codes. Hit the jump for the full text of the press release, which also mentions the new projects from OVO’s Majid Jordan and PARTYNEXTDOOR.
