Drake Promises Fan $50,000
Drake was performing in Vegas over the weekend and he was feeling very generous. A fan held up a sign that said, “I spent my furniture money on your two shows”, so Drake told the fan he was going to give him $50,000. That’s going to buy a lot of furniture. Check out this video of Drake promising to cover that fan’s costs… https://www.youtube.com/shorts/1hvyIIJibk0
Diddy Returns Publishing Rights to Bad Boy Artists
Speaking of generosity, apparently Diddy has returned the lucrative Bad Boy publishing rights to Bad Boy artists like Mase, LOX and the estate of The Notorious B.I.G. Of course, Mase has been heated about this over the past few years. But to me, it’s crazy that Biggie’s estate hasn’t seen any of that money til now. Faith Evans and 112 also got their publishing rights back. Reports are that Diddy was offered “nine figures” for the Bad Boy catalog but decided to return the publishing rights to the artists themselves instead, which is great. Diddy’s whole thing these days is about supporting each other in the community. So, you can’t be promoting that message and still own other people’s rights to things. Right?
