Drake Cancels Concert After Uncle's Death + D'Angelo Works On New Album

 

Unfortunately, Drake has had to cancel a concert in Florida while he mourns the death of his uncle. Get the deets inside and find out about D'Angelo back in the studio after the jump.....

 

Rapper Drake has suffered a death in his family and has cancelled his Florida concert as a result.

His rep released a statement saying,

 "We regret to announce that Drake will not be able to take the stage at Universal Orlando Resort due to a death in the family.  He hopes that his fans understand the situation he finds himself in and know that he fully intends to return to the area in the future. He thanks Universal Orlando Resort and his fans for their continued support.”

Our prayers are with you Drake.

 

Also in music news....

Fans of D'Angelo will be happy to learn that he hit the studio with Roots drummer Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson and bassist Pino Palladino in New York earlier this week for a late-night recording session.

Quest posted about the session on Twitter saying,

"Most people use midnight as a time to sleep. others are working on their 11 year followup. this of course being hour number one."

Early reports say the CD will be called James River and released via J Records towards the end of the year or in early 2012.

I can't wait to hear his new music. I wonder will he drop a hot video like "Untitled."

for those commenting on

for those commenting on D'Angelo...trust, he's "almost" back to his fighting weight. I was in the elevator at the hospital a few months ago and go the shock of my life when he walked on. He still has the same beautiful smile...and he was genuinely nice & looked great.

I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, CoolCent.com

Hmm. First, it's Nicki's

Hmm. First, it's Nicki's cousin. Now, it's Drake's uncle. That's unfortunate. Those family members didn't deserve that. Why should they have to die because your 15 minutes are up? It's cool, because now they have blood on their hands. I'm gonna say this now--I can give LESS than a f*ck a person's opinion from this, but if you don't want people like me to ask questions, then DON'T have these innocent people die so quickly within DAYS of each other!

I can appreciate that you took the time out of your busy, bandwagon hopping life to look up some good insult words from Merriam Webster's dictionary to hit me with, but as I've said in my last comment, I don't care what you call me. The fact that you felt a certain way about my opinion to respond says enough for me. Now it's your turn to defend Drake. Don't worry, I'll be right here.

@DSE Honestly you're ignorant

@DSE Honestly you're ignorant as hell with the vocabulary you use to voice your opinion. Talk about believing everything you read and to get off the internet when you're the one automatically believing anything this post says which is on the internet. No one speaks of the illuminati on these blogs but they will put a picture of drake with one eye squint and a owl on his shirt which is what the illuminati worship. How about you pick up a book and do some research instead of being simple minded and defending somebody who doesn't know you.

Young money's really going through some things right now, it's a sad situation but for superstitious people it might be a reason to live better just to avoid bad karma. I guess it could be one of those "with the good comes bad" sayings? Anyway, empathy sent out to Drake.

I am more worried about people like you who run around outing people and pointing the finger, history has shown over and over again that it is usually your type that is involved in the evil but to take focus off yourself you point at others.
