It is clear that in both the past and present, blackface engages in representational violence by drawing on antiblack stereotypes.
It’s easy to consume hip-hop as nothing more than entertainment. However, we should strive to engage hip-hop as a living and evolving culture that rhymes across national borders.
It's safe to say June 2018 should be one of the more memorable months in hip-hop history.

Drake's big ass 2015 just continues to get bigger. The Toronto rap star was the most streamed artist in the world on Spotify in 2015, reaching a staggering 1.8 billion streams. Rihanna was the #1 female with over 1 billion.
Drake did just about everything an artist could do this year. Some artists may have withered under the kind of pressure Drizzy faced this year. Label woes, rap beefs, and even murder could not slow the Toronto MC down this year. Even though Drake's label Young Money is locked in a battle with its distributor Cash Money, Drake appeared to be unfazed by the legal issues.
Drake — who practically knighted Councilman Norm Kelly on social media after the councillor came to the Toronto rapper’s defence over some now old news Twitter beef with rival rapper Meek Mill — would earn a prominent shout-out from city hall if the signs were approved and installed.
The way Drake frames his lyrics makes them much more palatable for men and women. Moreover, it is something the rapper has done deliberately.
Adding to his fashion cred, Drake has been revealed as the cover star and muse of W magazine's upcoming art issue, for which he collaborated with Editor-in-Chief Stefano Tonchi on choosing five artists to create works incorporating his likeness.

Drake's career blew up before he finished high school. The rapper, who dropped out at the age of 15, eventually earned his high school diploma in 2012. That may have appeased Drake, but one fan wants to see the rapper continue his education.
Growing and maintaining a beard has paid off for stars like LeBron James, rapper Drake and James Harden.
In popular culture, even vegans like a little “beef” from time to time. From the playful jabs of Bo Diddley’s "Say Man," to The Beatles' riffing the sound of The Beach Boys on "Back in the USSR," many revel in a little bad blood between artists.
Drake And Future Drop Mixtape And Gets Props, But Meek Gets Flamed By Trolls.
According to Serena, they share a mutual interest in tennis, which was a sport that Drake played when he was a teenager. The passion has continued into his adulthood. His 3-acre, 12,500 square-foot in Hidden Hills has a tennis court where he presumably practices sometimes.

Two people were killed at an After Party for OVO Fest. According to a new lawsuit, violence is nothing new for Drake or the club that hosted his party.
Even some of the fashion at OVO Fest was disrespectful to Meek. Big Willie's hat is made by a company in Toronto!!
Drake is the Raptors Global Ambassador, and friend to athletes from LeBron James to Andrew Wiggins to Serena Williams. And in each of this week’s salvo he has embedded references to Toronto’s sports glory.
The fact that Meek Mill frequently utilizes Twitter to voice his opinion to almost 5,000,000 followers, could be, or eventually cause a strain in his relationship with Nicki Minaj. According to stats released by Pew Research, technology is wreaking havoc in a significant amount of users' lives!
