AHH Stray News: Drake Leaks; Money Making Jam Boys; Common Cancels Gig

(AllHipHop News) Drake’s highly anticipated album Thank Me Later has been leaked on the Internet in its entirety almost two weeks before landing in stores. Tracks like “The Resistance,” “Up All Night” featuring Nicki Minaj  and “Show Me a Goodtime” (produced by Kanye West) are currently being traded on the Internet. Drake responded to the issue today (June 2nd) via Twitter and implied the leak didn’t seem to bother him. “I gave away free music for years so we’re good over here,” Drake tweeted. “Just allow it to be the soundtrack to your summer and ENJOY!” Thank Me Later officially lands in stores on June 15th. The Money Making Jam Boys have been added to the lineup of the 6th Annual Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival. The group features Roots rappers Black Thought and Dice Raw, along with Truck North and P.O.R.N. Other rappers announced as performers during the festival include Curren$y, Fashawn and Skyzoo. Rappers Smif-N–Wessun, Black Moon and De La Soul will headline the festival which takes place from July 5th -10th.  Highlights of the company include an independent talent show, a film festival, panel discussions featuring Q-Tip,  a tribute to DJ’s, a family day and more. Fans in Auckland, New Zealand are disappointed with rapper Common, after he inexplicably canceled a concert slated for later in June. Promoters issued a statement saying Common will not be performing at The Powerstation on June 16th. While no reason was given for the cancellation, promoters are offering disgruntled fans a full refund. Promoters are attempting to rebook Common for later in the year.
