Sotheby’s is teaming up with the rapper Drake in an exhibition of contemporary works by black American artists on sale at this auction house’s New York headquarters from April 28 to June 12.The hope is that Drake, whom Sotheby’s calls one of today’s “foremost cultural tastemakers,” will lend some of his aura to bolster its budding private sales business.

Full Story NY Times

Looks like Drake’s thoughts on the rap/art world are changing. Drake will be choosing music to be played at listening stations near the art work.

It’s like Hov can’t drop bars these days without at least four art references! I would love to collect at some point, but I think the whole rap/art world thing is getting kind of corny.”

ABC’s Special On Strawberry Mansion

World News Videos | US News Videos

In a special ABC News “Hidden America” report on the school that first aired in May 2013, Diane Sawyer and ABC News producers followed the daily lives of the school’s students and faculty, including its then-new principal, during the 2012-2013 school year. ABC News then went back in September 2013 to follow Strawberry Mansion at the start of the new 2013-2014 school year for a second special that aired in December 2013.

Grammy award-winning hip-hop artist Drake was so moved by the ABC News specials, especially after learning that budget cuts had left the school without a music teacher, that he donated $75,000 to Strawberry Mansion for a new recording studio.

The studio Drake help funded was finished last summer but now the school finally has a music teacher so students can utilize it. Clearly he didn’t do it for attention, there was no photos posted of a huge check.

Drake switch up a line from “Energy” to mention R&B N****s instead of rap. Is this in reference to Chris Brown’s latest interviews?
