The first audio preview of ‘Ye’s new album dropping in parallel with his guest appearance on the season premiere of SNL on Saturday. I dig the soulful flavor but not much of anything else (so far.) Wondering if the album will be as contradictory as ‘Ye’s ‘fit. 🤔

Lumping this milestone news together for Toronto’s finest today.
First, The Weeknd has the #1 song in the country! Would you have believed that in 2011? “Can’t Feel My Face” tops the Hot 100 this week and I suspect the run will at least ride through the rest of the summer.

The other accolade goes to the city’s top dog, Drake, who has the first platinum album of 2015. 1 million copies sold… and this is after the initial rush got it for free back in February. Quite the accomplishment that Drake also dapped up on social media tonight too.
Hip Hop lost another one today. Reports this morning confirm the passing of Sean Price. He was 43. Details remain uncovered about how Price passed, except that it was in his sleep late last night.
“It is with beyond a heavy heart that Duck Down Music is sadly confirming that Sean Price passed away early this morning in his Brooklyn apartment, Saturday, August 8th, 2015,” reads a statement from his reps. “The cause of death is currently unknown, but it was reported that he died in his sleep. He’s survived by his wife, and his three children.
The hip hop community is already pouring out some heartfelt condolences. We of course do the same and thank Sean Price, or as you may have heard him as Ruck or 0.5 of Heltah Skeltah, for his many contributions to the culture.

Damn. Some of Sean Price’s last tweets.
