Drake 430 Week Run On The Billboard Hot 100 Chart Has Come To An End

For the first time since his debut all the way back in 2009, Drake has zero entries on the Billboard “Hot 100” chart.

This means that the record-holder for the most “Hot 100” hits among solo music artists has had his 430-week run come to an end.

Even though this is sad news for Drizzy, that is one hell of an accomplishment to be proud of!

Trailer For The Drake Homecoming Movie

According to AMC Theatres, a movie based on Drake‘s sold out show at the Sound Academy in Toronto, Canada back in 2009 before he signed to Young Money will be released on March 19th.

The 2-hour-long film has took so long to come out, because the footage was believed to be lost and destroyed. It is also set to include interviews with James Prince, Jas Prince, Bun B, and others.

You can watch a trailer for “Drake: Homecoming” after the jump below! What’s interesting is that Jas says in the preview: “Wayne told me he sucked, he was like: ‘Jas don’t play me that shit no more, it’s not good'”.

Drake Nominated For Best New Artist At VMA Awards 2009

The 2009 Video Music Awards nominations are out, and though much of the attention is on Best Video, one of the most intriguing categories is the race for Best New Artist. It pits Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” against 3OH!3 (“Don’t Trust Me”) and three top-shelf MCs: Drake (“Best I Ever Had“), Kid Cudi (“Day ‘N’ Nite”) and Asher Roth (“I Love College”).

Drake has certainly built up a great deal of buzz in the hip-hop community. And unlike some artists, he has fully delivered on that hype. A smooth, crooning MC in the Lil Wayne mold, his runaway hit “Best I Ever Had” has not only found a home on regular rotation on MTV but also has camped out near the top of the Billboard chart for most of the summer. Though the Canadian rapper has recently hit on hard times (he re-injured his knee at a concert stop in New Jersey), he’s still had an incredible year: He dropped a much-downloaded mixtape, signed with Lil Wayne’s Young Money label, was drafted to the “American’s Most Wanted” tour and got Kanye West to direct the clip for “Best I Ever Had“.

Shouts to MTV and who thinks Drizzy will win this award ❓
