The past 24 hours have not been memorable for Tyga. The former Young Money celebrated his 26th birthday on Thursday, even releasing a new song for the occasion. Ringing in the occasion with a star-studded party at 1Oak nightclub in Los Angeles with A$AP Rocky, Wiz Khalifa, Jamie Foxx, and more, one person was missing in action.
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are soon-to-be parents. The couple announced on Monday evening that they’re expecting a baby.

Our friends at the FADER are pulling out all the stops for their 100th issue. The first cover-story reveal is Drake, possibly his best-looking portrait (I mean, there have been some odd ones over the years), and an interesting look into arguably the biggest “rap” star during one of his most active periods. The story opens up with Serena Williams fans blaming him for her U.S. Open loss, moves onto Drake’s action-packed summer of Meek beef and Future bromance…and gives some insight into the imminent ‘Views From The 6′ album which still has no set release date.
The FADER also reminds us that this is Drake’s first in-depth interview since he quit the media in 2014 amidst the backlash of his refreshingly abrasive Rolling Stone feature.
Along with incredible detail and observation from writer Leon Neyfakh, there are also some beautiful photos by Mark Peckmezian that show a different side of hip hop’s most meme-ingful star.
Really well done.
More on Drake in the FADER’s 100th issue, after the jump….

MissInfo: People are usually shocked when I tell them that I’m actually kind of shy in real life…but it’s true. Pulling out stories from others is a breeze, but talking about myself is pure struggle. That said, I loved opening up my humble abode to our friends from the FADER and Sonos for their incredible “At Home With” series because I know that there are so many folks out there just like me, cramming family, friends, work, and of course, music into their day.
Watch as I drag MissInfo.TV‘s Mikey Fresh to the farmer’s market, have a brainstorming meeting about our upcoming site redesign (it’s finally coming!), eat bagels and lox with my girls, and listen to some tunes with my 3-month old baby boy, Max. Most importantly…I get to share some thoughts about being a working mom isn’t a sacrifice, it’s a bonus!
