Drake and his box of money
This stunt probably seemed a lot cooler when he dreamed it up with his buddies. How else do you explain why Drake brought a cardboard box filled with $50,000 in small bills to the Cameo Nightclub in Charlotte, North Carolina, to "make it rain" on the strippers?
Photos show the club floor literally carpeted in a thick layer of bills, but strangely, the rapper doesn't look that cheerful. Maybe he realized halfway through how goofy it was going to look in the tabloids.
At least some dancers went home with purses stuffed full of cash. We're guessing they'll spend it more carefully than Drake did.
Modern Superstitions no more
We've long been supporters of Toronto's Modern Superstitions, even back when they were simply known as the Superstitions. Unfortunately, word on the street is that they've decided to call it quits and their February 28 show at the El Mocambo was their last.
We've got a feeling you'll be hearing more from the various members in the future, but it's still sad to see such a promising band throw in the towel.
Jesse Futerman vs Odd Future (?)
Details are still sketchy, but it looks as if Toronto producer Jesse Futerman is now part of the infamous Odd Future collective and is supposedly making beats for both Earl Sweatshirt and Danny Brown. Futerman confirms the reports, but nothing official has come from the OFWGKTA camp yet, other than a post on what appears to be Earl Sweatshirt's personal Facebook account.
If it is true, it'll be a major boost for the up-and-coming producer. If, however, he's just trying to prank the media, we'll never believe anything he says again.
UPDATE (3/11/2013, 12:32 PM): We thought something seemed a little fishy about this story, and it turns out that Jesse Futerman himself was the victim of an odd prank. The Toronto producer thought he was talking to Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt and his management, but it turns out to have been an impostor. A dejected Futerman admits that he should have been a bit more skeptical about the situation.
"Prior to talking to the fake Earl I was going through a bit of a hard time, trying to vary my style so I could hopefully play more shows. I feel like my career and name have been scarred and tarnished. I wish this never had happened and I hope the truth comes out."
Inquiries to Odd Future's publicist confirm that someone had obtained access to Earl Sweatshirt's Facebook account, and had used that to convince Futerman that they were the actual musician.
