In Toronto, Drake’s 6th annual OVO Fest which featured guest appearances from Kanye West, Pharrell, J. Cole, Big Sean, Future and more, was overshadowed by two shootings at the OVO Fest after-party at Muzik nightclub last Tuesday. Ten days after the incident, which took the lives of Duvel Hibbert, 23, and Ariela Navarro-Fenoy, 26, Drake has released a statement on the tragic incident.

The last few days I have been in a moral bind. I am used to the fact that my life and the things I say to my fans are‎ closely watched,” he opens the statement, which was released on his website. “It’s tough in situations like this where there’s a tragedy and I consider the advice of my trusted advisors and counsel who worry that anything I might say could be misinterpreted.”

Meek Mill took to the stage at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, taking time to fire more shots at Drake. Before Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Wayne had their moment on stage during “The Pinkprint” tour on Sunday night, Meek responded for a second time to Drake’s “Charged Up” track which debuted on OVO Sound Radio the previous night.

I was doing my album, and I asked the ni**a to give me a verse for my album,” said Meek to the crowd in Brooklyn. “The ni**a gave me a verse for my album. But he gave me a verse that he didn’t write, that another ni**a wrote. Where I come from, I represent the mother****ing game. I represent the mother****ing streets. If you ain’t with me, you ain’t gotta act like you with me, I got the mother****ing streets with me for life!.”

Meek Mill will be releasing a response record to Drake’s “Charged Up” on HOT 97 at 7 p.m. tonight.

future

Future has held off from doing interviews during his recent hot streak of projects this year. The ATLien sat down with Marc Lamont Hill on HuffPost Live on Monday afternoon, discussing a wide range of topics. During the 30-minute sitdown, Future speaks on the decision to drop Monster, Beast Mode, 56 Nights and now Dirty Sprite 2 on short notice, looking up to artists like Jay Z and André 3000, and rumors of him being a deadbeat father.

The Freebandz artist also opened up on his previous relationship with Ciara, stating the reason for their breakup was the two growing a part and not due to him cheating. The “Commas” rapper closed the live chat, taking time responding to OG Maco’s recent comments, where the “U Guessed It” star called Future out for his drug-filled lyrics destroying lives “by making it cool to be a drug addict.”

Miguel had social media buzzing on Monday, after an interview with The Sunday Times was published online. During the conversation, the “Adorn” singer was asked if he had any kind of relationship with fellow R&B artist Frank Ocean. “I wouldn’t say we were friends,” said Miguel. “To be completely honest—and no disrespect to anyone—I genuinely believe that I make better music, all the way around.” He later added “We’ll see who’s in it for the long haul, it’s like a marathon, you know?.”

As expected in today’s world of entertainment, always ready to blow things up, fans of Frank Ocean blasted the singer on social media and debates quickly formed as to which artist is better. Hours after the interview was made public, Miguel took to Twitter on Monday night, clarifying his comments without mentioning Ocean’s name. “There’s room for all artists,” later explaining “That’s what Wildheart is all about: celebrating individuality. I guess what I’m saying is, there’s no need to compare apples to oranges, there’s something out there for everyone.”

Read Miguel’s full statement below.
