In 2014, Drake helped several artists bolster their hip-hop status by jumping on joints like Migos’ ‘Versace,’ ILOVEMAKONNEN’s ‘Tuesday’ and YG’s ‘Who Do Love.’ Now the rap superstar is going back to where he started from — the mixtape circuit — and dropping a new project of his own — before his album arrives.
According to Toronto Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan, Drizzy is planning to drop a new mixtape in January 2015. In an interview with NBA TV, the baller revealed that he would get first dibs of Drake’s new mixtape before he releases it to the public.

There’s nothing that will ruin a Thanksgiving dinner faster than an argument. In order to keep the peace this Thanksgiving, here are some topics to avoid:

A Boston woman is turning a striking resemblance to Rihanna into cold cash. According to England's Daily Mail, 22-year-old Andele Lara looks so much like RiRi that's she been paid up to $20,000 to promote products as the pop star. "I know I could happily give up my part-time job and studies to have a career as a Rihanna lookalike," says Lara, who has used her look to help sell clothing, sneakers, mascara and hair products.
Lara says that she's been mistaken for the star for several years now. "The comments started in my sophomore year. My friend had a magazine with Rihanna on the cover. He held it up to my face and was like, ‘You look like her!'"
Lara says she hopes to meet her meal ticket one day and take a selfie with her.
