The Real Reason Drake Sold Over 600,000 Copies of “Views” in 1 Night

For months, Drake has been preparing us for the release of his album Views from the 6, which dropped last Friday. If you ask me, the wave really began when Meek Mill declared war on Drake. Drake used that momentum to get us prepared for his next offering, and he even let us know he was taking a break from recording the album to respond to Meek during their conflict last year. If you listen to the tail end of Back To Back, Drake makes the reference “I took a break from Views, now it’s back to that, 6!” Shortly before releasing the album online, Drake shortened the name of the release to simply Views,…

Last Friday, Brian Birdman Williams appeared on The Breakfast Club radio show in an apparent effort to bully the show’s hosts for disrespectful comments and offensive commentary made regarding record industry mogul. The video clip, seen above, is a bit comical in nature. If you remove all the negative connotation attached to the meeting, it looks like a grown ass baby, no pun intended, sitting in a chair, pouting, preparing to launch a ghetto-fortified hissy fit. And essentially, that’s exactly what Birdman did. He demanded that his name be respected comma and for about 35 to 40 seconds, engaged in a friendly game of “So what you gon’ do?” You remember that game, we’ve all…
