Rapidly rising rap star Drake will be heading out on the road this year. Billboard.com is reporting that the emcee will kick-off his “The Away From Home Tour” in the spring. The trek begins April 6th in Charleston, Illinois, and will feature 25 shows with stops in Orlando, Boston and New Orleans. The tour will also include stops at 15 college campuses as part of the “Campus Conscious Tour.” Included on Drake’s “The Away From Home Tour” is Canadian rapper K-OS and New York pop band Francis & The Lights. Drake has also partnered with the non-profit organization Reverb to adopt eco-friendly policies for the tour. Biodiesel fuel and biodegradable and recyclable products will be used on Drake’s tour bus and backstage. An “Eco-Village” featuring environmental groups will also be included on “The Away From Home Tour.”
Drake went out on tour last year as a part of Lil Wayne’s “Young Money Presents: America’s Most Wanted Music Festival.” Unfortunately, the rapper injured his knee during the tour and was sidelined for part of the trek. Drake is currently working on his debut album, “Thank Me Later.” The record is expected to hit stores sometime this year.
The homie necolebitchie posted Young Money came out in support of Lil Wayne last night at Dolce for his official â€œGoing Away Partyâ€ in Miami. As you may recall, Wayne was arrested in 2007 on gun charges. He will be formally sentenced this Tuesday (tomorrow) and is expected to begin his jail sentence at Rikers Island immediately afterwards.

The scorn woman sent an email which stated:
Ladies it is time for us to wake up and see these men for who they are. This is one of many emails to come! Remember in life you must make choices; love the one you are with and stop thinking people will never find things out… cause your actions always come to the light.
That boy Bobby getting it in, but at what PRICE? I could not imagine what I would do if this happened to me. Ladies, tell me if I am wrong, but…There is nothing, I repeat, NOTHING like a woman SCORNED…People, please watch where you put and leave your phones…

According to MISSJIA.com, looks like Faith Evans will be stepping from behind the mic and in front of the CAMERAS! Reality shows seem to be the latest craze among celebrities, and an even greater number for R&B singers. Kim Kardashian, Hugh Hefner, Ice T and CoCo, Ray J, Monica, Keyshia Cole, and Fantasia have placed their lives on the flat screens for the world to see. Now, Faith Evans will join them when she releases her 6th album and debuts her own reality show called â€œItâ€™s All About Faith.â€
As one of the original cast members of Bad Boy, Faith will let viewers into her home as she prepares to return to the spotlight after a 5-year hiatus.Â Years since the death of her husband Notorious Big, Â Evans will reveal her personal side in a reality show that introduces fans to the mother, wife, and entreprenuer sides of the already established singer.
The reality show and new studio album will be released through E1 Television and E1 Music.
On another note, Actress Maia Campbellâ€“who was last seen on a scary and erratic PROSTITUTE SPEECH looking a complete METH wreckâ€“was spotted on Melrose Ave. Word is she was placed Â in a rehab facility to get help. Looks like itâ€™s working. She’s starting to look like that sweet chic from “In the House”with LL Cool J.Â Ms. Campbell was truly DOWN BAD. This is beautiful REDEMPTION. What do ya’ll think?
As we all know, Lil Wayne was SUPPOSED to head the jail earlier this week. Â Well, according to MTV.com, the rapper was due to be sentenced Tuesday but instead will now be back in court on March 2 after SURGERY on his teeth….I didn’t know they did that…Anyway, personally, I can count the 2 times I have seen Wayne without some kind of GRILL, so I wonder what kind of work is he getting done…lol.
Reports claim he filmed NINE music videos at the weekend. He also released a video online saying goodbye to his fans (POSTED ABOVE).
We will miss Wayne during his bid. Young Money will most likely hold it down until his release.
His Quote :
â€œIâ€™m out this bitch. To all my fans, my real fans, I really, really, really truly love you. I love you with all of me, for real. Iâ€™ll probably be loving everything else because I love you so much. Thank you from the bottom [of my heart]. Do not forget about me â€™cause I will forever think about you, and I cannot wait for you to see me again. Iâ€™m out.â€
