OVO Producer Mike Zombie & Dougie F – Coin In The Bank

In a Jersey joint effort, Mike Zombie and Dougie F come together for a brand new release with “Coin In The Bank.”

“Coin In The Bank” is inspired by Sonic 2, featuring a jingle from the video game’s “Chemical Plant” stage. The quirky reworked chiptune is backed by a guitar accompaniment from Torin Martinez. The cover artwork, designed by Mike Z., features two game characters–one with red hair and the other with a yellow top. The red-haired character (Super Sonic) is representative of Mike’s real-life red tresses while the yellow one (Knuckles) is symbolic of Dougie’s yellow du-rag wearing swag.

Listen to “Coin In The Bank” below! The song is available on iTunes here.

OVO affiliate Gilla releases new “Wrapped Up” video

Toronto-based OVO affiliated Reps Up crew rapper Gilla releases a new video “Wrapped Up” that pays homage to the Toronto neighborhood of Scarborough that helped raise him. While Scarborough is known as a region in Toronto that has produced everything from world class comedians (Mike Myers) to YouTube celebrities (Lilly Singh), there is a dark underbelly that few outside of Toronto know, and Gilla takes viewers on a vivid tour of the streets of Galloway. 
 
Gilla is a member of Reps Up – whose members include rapper P. Reign, Drake’s right hand man / bodyguard Chubbs, and Baka aka Baka Not Nice – and his “Wrapped Up” video comes as a follow up to his debut single “Pray For Me” produced by Grammy nominated producer Daniel Worthy (Drake, Yo Gotti, PartyNextDoor, The Game) that featured a cameo appearance by Wu Tang Clan’s Raekwon. “Wrapped Up” is the second single from the forthcoming and highly anticipated “Stay Solid – Part Two” mixtape.

#WTF: Drake Allegedly Hospitalized After Nightclub Brawl vs. Diddy

Allegations that “Bad Boy” CEO Diddy squared off with OVO founder Drake flooded Twitter early this morning, December 8th. While the rumors haven’t been confirmed by Diddy or Drake, DJ Sam Sneak, DJ Ace, and comedic actor Lil Duval have all confirmed that Diddy hooked off on Drake.

According to DJ Ace, the altercation occurred outside the back exit of LIV Nightclub in Miami, Florida. Details on the actual fight are scarce, but Diddy definitely tried to put hands on the “Started From The Bottom” rapper. DJ Ace claims that he saw “@drake get slapped by @iamdiddy outside the back of LIV with my own eyes,” while Twitter user “@CocaineNoHoney” claims that Diddy hit Drake with the “take that, take that move.”

DJ Sam Sneak claims that the altercation was more serious than a simple slap in the face. According to him, Diddy hit Drake with a “3 piece” combination, and the end result from the entire rumble was Drake being checked into the hospital after suffering a dislocated shoulder. @CocaineNoHoney also claims that one of Diddy’s security guards was hit with a Ciroc bottle by someone from Drake’s OVO crew after Diddy landed the initial punch.



Lil Duval sent fans into a frenzy after he trolled the situation and jokingly tweeted that Diddy hit Drake because he was trying to spit game to Cassy. Duval later clarified that he was only joking about that being the cause of the altercation. We’ll keep you updated as more details surface from the fight between Diddy and Drake, but for now, check out the tweets surrounding the confrontation above.
