Toronto Raptors Reportedly Lift Meek Mill Music Ban

(Radio.com) Drake is a huge Toronto Raptors fan; he's also the basketball team's official Global Ambassador. When Meek Mill called out the Canadian rapper for using ghostwriters, his music was banned in the team's locker room, according to Raptor's player Patrick Patterson.

That was back in January. TMZ's cameras recently caught up with Patterson who told them the ban has been lifted. "You seem to forget we have a guy from Philadelphia on the team," he said. "Yeah, you got people from Philly, so people from Philly tend to play Philly music. Myself, I still listen to Meek Mill."

Not that things have really cooled down between Meek and Drake. Just last week Mill took a shot at Drizy in a seven minute freestyle. Check out the full video here.

Video Of Lady Gaga Bar Show Goes Online Featuring New Songs

(Radio.com) Lady Gaga had promised fans a performance of her new song 'Million Reasons," and a taste of her new album, Joanne. And she made good on that promise, playing four songs from the album at a short show in Nashville on Wednesday night (Oct 5).

The location was a secret until Bud Light posted a live stream on Facebook. The pop star arrived at The 5 Spot venue in East Nashville at 10:22 p.m. Gaga entered through the front door, schlepping her own guitar and greeted fans on the way in.

Gaga opened her set with a low-key performance of the Joanne song "Sinner's Prayer." The earthy, uptempo track "A-Yo" followed. Then Gaga unveiled her new ballad "Million Reasons"; Nashville seemed the right place to unveil the country-flavored tune. Gaga wrapped up the set with "Perfect Illusion," the album's lead single.

And then, it was done. 'Nashville. We love you. Good night," she said. And the mic hit the floor. By 10:50 pm the Webcast was over. Read more and watch the Nashville show here.

Drake Pranks Drake University Under Cover Of Darkness

(Radio.com) Drake University in Iowa has been trying to get its not-namesake Drake to visit for years. And on Tuesday night (October 4), under cover of darkness, he did just that.

Drake was in Des Moines performing as part of his Summer Sixteen tour. When he announced the show in May, Drake University's press team issued a public invitation to finally #BringDraketoDrake. He actually responded, saying he'd visit when everyone least expected it.

After finishing up his show, Drake pranked the university by visiting campus and posing with the sign. He even stood outside sorority houses and used his Instagram Stories for the first time to share teasing video. "Kappa Kappa Gamma, I'm outside of your sorority house right now and you're all asleep," he said.

Even if students were bummed to miss Drake, the university capitalized on his appearance, going so far as to put down footprints where he stood by the school's sign so others can pose in that very spot. Read more here.

Jana Kramer Opens Up About Domestic Abuse

(Radio.com) Jana Kramer's first marriage was a painful, terrifying experience that the country singer has rarely discussed. Speaking with People in a new interview, Kramer discussed meeting her first husband Michael Gambino when she was 19 years old.

He was 17 years older, but that was part of the attraction. "At the time, I liked that," she admitted. "I felt protected." The two wed shortly after meeting each other in an L.A. coffee shop, but things took a violent turn just two weeks later.

Gambino's frequent bouts of jealousy turned abusive. "He'd come home at 3 o'clock in the morning and pick me up out of bed, throw me onto the ground and start yelling and hitting," she explained. When she tried to leave, he would threaten her, one time sending her a photo of her two dogs on the freeway with a message about letting them loose if she didn't return.

On August 6, 2005, Gambino choked Kramer into unconsciousness and left her bleeding in their driveway. "I remember praying that night, 'Please, just take me away, I don't want to be here anymore'," she said. He was later arrested and sentenced to six years in prison. He was released in 2010, but committed suicide two years later. Read more here.

Justin Bieber Shares His Love For Shawn Mendes' New Album

(Radio.com) It looks as though Shawn Mendes has himself a true blue fan in fellow Canadian pop star Justin Bieber. The Biebs tweeted out a series of messages to followers earlier this week(October 5), encouraging them to buy Mendes' sophomore studio album Illuminate.

"Shawn Mendes voice makes me smile. Truly a gift to be able to move peoples emotions through songs!" Bieber wrote. "So proud of you brother! Great album!"

The good will comes after Justin appeared to shade Shawn last year when he claimed to not know who Mendes was in an interview. That riled up Mendes' fans more than it did the burgeoning pop star himself, but Bieber extended an olive branch before any kind of beef got going. He later tweeted directly at Mendes, and wrote, "Shawn I checked out the music and I'm so proud! So glad to see another boy from Canada crushin it. #canadiansdoitbetter." Read more here.

Mobb Deep's Prodigy Is A Tupac Fan Despite Beef

(Radio.com) Mobb Deep was a big part of the '90s east coast/west coast beefs, and on the latest episode of the Rap Radar podcast on CBS Radio's Play.it. In fact, he told hosts Elliott Wilson and Brian "B-Dog" Miller that he became a fan of his adversary Tupac during the beef.

"We was living that só," Prodigy explained. 'That was our mindstate anywhere we at. I don't care where we going' I'm just prepared for that só at any time."

West coast legend Tupac Shakur had taken plenty of shots at New York rappers as a whole grouping together rappers like The Notorious B.I.G., Junior Mafia and Mobb Deep in songs like 'Hit 'Em Up" and 'Hail Mary."

"I wasn't a big Tupac fan, I liked his songs like 'Dear Mama,' 'Keep Ya Head Up' and all of those," he said. 'All of that was before the drama and all that but I wasn't a big, big Tupac fan until he started the songs going at us. I was like 'That's hard, son.' On that 'Hail Mary' track I was like 'He coming hard now,' that's when I became a real Tupac fan."

Prodigy laughed as he explained this but he maintained that those diss tracks were how Shakur gained his respect. Mobb Deep wasn't ready to back down from Shakur and the rest of Death Row Records, who were taking shots at the young New York rappers. Read more here.

Wiz Khalifa Clothing Line Inspired By His Son Sebastian

(Radio.com) Wiz Khalifa's new capsule clothing line "BASH" has a unique twist: It's a range of clothes for fathers and young sons, ensuring that dads and kids can hang out together in style.

Wiz partnered with L.A.-based Junk Food Clothing and said three-year-old Sebastian, his son with ex Amber Rose, was the inspiration for its creative direction.

"All the designs are based around Sebastian -- all of his hobbies and the things that he's into. I just really wanted it to feel personal to him, so when he sees it, he gets excited," Wiz tells People.

The rapper added that kids (with their various interests and hobbies) shouldn't feel left out of the fashion game. 'He's three years old, so he might not understand the concept of having his own clothing line," he added. "But the fact that all of his favorite things are all over his clothes, it makes him feel special; it makes him entertained by what he's wearing." Read more here.

Adam Lambert Reveals His New Huge Tattoo

(Radio.com) There are all sorts of symbols associated with gay pride, but Adam Lambert may soon start a new fad thanks to the fresh ink he recently got. The pop star got a new tattoo on his flank, which he showed off on Instagram earlier this week (October 3).

The black and white design features the head of Antinous, the Greek youth who was a lover of Emperor Hadrian way way back in the day aka circa 120 B.C.

Lambert posted on Instagram, "(look him up)" after sharing the name behind the design. After Antinous' death at only 29 years old, Hadrian deified him and he has since become synonymous with homosexuality in Western culture. Lambert's tattoo, therefore, is a proud symbol of his sexuality's heritage, one that moves past more traditional symbols like the rainbow flag. Check it out here.
