We got 5 shows in a row wit Snoop Dogg. I haven’t been on stage since I did Japan in May. So it felt real good to perform.” Cube also made his prediction for the “Three Kings” on the Miami Heat – LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. “It won’t work, Lakers are still the team to beat.” According to Ice Cube, the next single to be released will be “Drink the Kool-Aid.”According to reports, Toronto rapper Drake has expressed interest in playing United States President, Barack Obama. Drake was a child star in the Nick! series Degrassi: The Next Generation, starring as a wheelchair-bound student named Jimmy Brooks. “I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama’s life soon because I could play him,” Drake told Paper magazine. “That’s the goal… Anytime I see him on TV, I don’t change the channel, I definitely pay attention and listen to the inflections of his voice.” Drake’s debut album Thank Me Later is currently #2 on Billboard’s Top 200, second only to Eminem’s album Recovery. Tiny & Toya have put the brakes on their hit BET reality series Tiny & Toya, which will return as Toya’s Family Affair. According to reports, the new show will focus on Antonia “Toya” Carter’s relationship with her daughter by Lil’ Wayne, in addition to the mothers of Lil’ Wayne’s other children. Those women include Lauren London, R&B singer Nivea and Sarah B. “We kind of always get together to keep the kids together so they can know each other,” Carter said. “The situation is not ideal but at this point it is what it is and we try to make the best of it.”
