We think we know who Drake is voting for in this Battle of the Booties.

The (VERY) lucky singer is on the receiving end of a Nicki Minaj lap dance in a series of photos released by Minaj late on Monday, all of which tease tomorrow's release of her "Anaconda" music video.

The artist, of course, has used her impressive rear end to promote the track for weeks, initially releasing cover art that depicts her in nothing but a g-string.

Nicki went on to complain about a double standard for African-American women who pose in racy fashion versus white women who do the same... but Drake doesn't look like he has a problem with it, does he?

Nicki Minaj Teases Anaconda Video, Drake
So... what do you think, Drake? The singer gets an up close and VERY personal look at Nicki Minaj in this tease for the "Anaconda" music video.

Minaj will also perform "Anaconda" this Sunday at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Chris Brown and Drake’s short-lived bromance appears to be in full swing, with the former crooning to the latter's song in an amusing new Instagram video.

Using a very theatrical, feminine and exaggerated falsetto voice, Chris sings a few bars from Drizzy's "0-100 (Real Quick)," clearly cracking himself up.

Brown captioned the post, “Ima GANGSTA n*gga!” Watch:

While some celebrity gossip sites jumped on this as a sign that their once-infamous feud may be back on, we're going with the opposite conclusion.

This strikes us as Chris being silly more than anything.

Everyone was shocked to see Chris Brown and Drake in the studio together this month, and to see Chris rap along to a Drake song on Instagram.

All the bad blood over Rihanna (and their nightclub fight from 2012) feels like a distant memory, and they even spoofed the beef in an ESPYs skit.

Yes, Chris is having some fun at Drake's expense here, but it seems pretty light-hearted and out of mutual respect, rather than a cheap shot.

While the hot dogs are being eaten and the patriotic cocktails consumed, you're probably going to want some tunes to groove to at your Fourth of July cookout.

Some musicians and bands out there are proudly shouting "Hey, we got your back!" Or, more appropriately, they've got your entertainment. 

Over 75 songs exist which contain the word "firework" or "fireworks" in the lyrics, though not many of them are actually about fireworks. Or the Fourth of July. 

Meh. Semantics, right?

We took the liberty of making you a Fourth of July playlist, featuring 11 songs titled "Fireworks." From Indie Rock to R&B, get ready to jam out before the skies light up with pyrotechnics:

It seems like only 2012-13 when Chris Brown and Drake were engaged in an epic feud and their posses were hurling bottles at a New York nightclub.

Now only have they quashed the beef, but nowadays, Breezy spends his downtime rapping along to Drake songs and posting videos of it online!

So ... do you want to sound the man-crush alert or shall we?

Many felt that Drake's romance with Rihanna would jeopardize the detente with Chris, but if so, he wouldn't Instagram himself rapping Drake’s "0-100."

Chris posted that he was “bored freestyling," talking about sex, guns and jail - topics he is well versed in. Dude's good at using guns and knives, remember.

In any case, his Instagram post seems to suggest that there’s at least a baseline level of respect with Drake, who returned the favor back on June 2:

In what often seems like a genre focused on getting cars, cash, and girls, rap often gets a bad rap. Some of the genre's most talented voices use their powers for good.

Or they try. Instead of playing to the lowest common denominator, their politically charged and often personal song lyrics are an attempt to alter the course of pop culture.

It's easy to sell records when songs are about Miley Cyrus Twerking. Making people listen to your song about class struggles, religion, and racism is a different story.

Drake
Drake was 2013's most Tweeted about rapper. He definitely knows a thing or two about social media, and the personal stories behind his songs have made him immensely popular.

Fortunately, some rappers have made this their mission. They're the voices of political discourse for their generation. And they know the meaning of one simple word: diversify.

Instead of focusing solely on their careers as musical artists, they've branched out into the world of music production, acting, apparel, and public speaking.

Drake may not know the square root of 69, but he does know a thing or two about rap and joins a list of our 17 most intelligent rappers ever, a group of most definitely smart men.

Bottom line: There's more than one way to bank the Benjamins while spreading your message than merely rapping about being all about the Benjamins.

Meanwhile, Weezy has been hard at work on Tha Carter V, which he has said will be his final album; Drake will serve as executive producer on the project.

Drake released a new song Tuesday called "Draft Day." The track, which samples Lauryn Hill, is not affiliated, we don't think, with the movie of the same name.

It does, however, contain some lyrical gems, with the star name-checking Chicago MC Chance the Rapper, Johnny Manziel and ... Jennifer Lawrence.

There are also plenty of insults and barbs to go around.

"Draft Day" opens with a nod to the controversial college football phenomenon Manziel before Rihanna's rumored boyfriend addresses his detractors:

"And if I left this s--t to chance, I would've picked a name like Chance the Rapper. No offense 'cause I don't know that n---a. I just focus on making records and getting bigger."

Elsewhere, Drake appears to diss Jay-Z and Kanye West, with whom he has feuded before, with the line, "Just hits, no Mrs. / That's for the married folk."

But arguably the best and most unexpected reference came with a tribute (see what we did there?!) of sorts to a well-known celebrity in a different field.

Many people were impressed by Macklemore texting Kendrick Lamar to say that he just robbed him of Best Rap Album honors at the 2014 Grammy Awards.

Drake was not one of those people.

  • Drake Reacts
  • Macklemore Image

The Canadian rapper-crooner, who was also nominated in that category, spoke with Rolling Stone about Macklemore's gesture, declaring, "that s--t was wack as f--k."

His reasoning behind that view?

Drake was nominated for his album, Nothing Was the Same, but didn't receive any text after Macklemore & Ryan Lewis took home the prize for The Heist.

Macklemore texting Kendrick Lamar may have seemed cool to some fans, but "To name just Kendrick? That s--t made me feel funny," Drake continued.

Drake is on his "Worst Behavior" in his latest music video. So to speak.

The 27-year-old rapper's new effort from his album Nothing Was the Same comes in the form of a 10-minute video that features from his dad, Dennis Graham.

Two of his best friends, Juicy J and Project Pat, also appear. Watch:

"Would You Like A Video?" Drake Tweeted to his followers with the clip.

Filmed in Memphis, the video begins by showing historic Royal Studios, which was run by the performer's uncle Willie Mitchell, interestingly enough.

Cue Drake's pops lip-syncing "Worst Behavior" in a sharp white suit!

Drake canceled his show the other night in Philadelphia just before it was set to begin, and reportedly the cause was serious fan safety concerns.

Drake's camp was vague as to why he pulled the plug at the last minute, saying it was due to "unexpected technical issues." That's putting it mildly.

Apparently Drake was scared that the catwalk that loomed over the stage would fall into the crowd due to an electrical problem that could be severe.

The catwalk, on which the rapper walks back and forth as he raps, is a big part of the show, and any failure could have tragic consequences for fans.
