Could you deem a passive dispute between an Australian tennis player and a Canadian rapper an international feud? Ladies and gents, prepare yourselves: we may have WWIII on our hands. 

Nick Kyrgious, the nineteen year old Australian tennis pro had some choice comments to make about a Drake song he felt didn’t do an adequate pump-up job for the young pro pre match. When facing third round opponent, Jiri Vesely, Kyrgious was off to a rather slow start. He blamed his preparatory playlist for the sluggish beginning, particularly pointing a finger at a Drake song.

 
Drake fired back at the low blow:
"I also want to meet this guy that says he lost because he listened to my music. I also want to meet that guy and look him in the eye and see exactly who he is as a man and size him up and then chop him right down. Nick whatever-his-name-is - ‘cause he didn’t win, so that’s how he’s going to be remembered: ‘Nick whatever-his-name-is
 
Ok Drake, not the most eloquent grouping of words ever put together, nor is it completely correct, but ok. At least you’re not the guy who blamed his bad performance on a song.

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter


2 eggs


1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour


1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder


2 teaspoons dried lavender


1/2 teaspoon salt


1 cup sugar


1/4 cup honey


1 teaspoon vanilla


2/3 cup milk


 
Dried lavender (optional)



DirectionsAllow butter and eggs to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, line forty-eight 1-3/4-inch muffin cups or eighteen 2- 1/2-inch muffin cups with paper bake cups. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, the 2 teaspoons lavender, and the salt. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar, honey, and vanilla; beat until combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Alternately add flour mixture and milk to butter mixture, beating on low speed after each addition just until mixture is combined.
Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each about three-fourths full. Use the back of a spoon to smooth out batter in cups.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes for 1-3/4-inch cupcakes (or 16 to 18 minutes for 2-1/2-inch cupcakes) or until a toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool cupcakes in muffin cups on wire racks for 10 minutes. Remove cupcakes from muffin cups. Cool completely on wire racks.
Pipe or spread with Honey Frosting. If desired, sprinkle with additional lavender. Makes 48 (1-3/4-inch) or 18 (2-1/2-inch) cupcakes.

Drake and Chris Brown are going to work together on a comedic skit for ESPN’s ESPY awards.

They were also allegedly collaborating in the studio together this week. Time will tell how this goes.. 

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony will reunite to release one copy of a new album and auction it off for 1 million dollars. For everyone aside from the one idiot who wins the album at auction, Bone Thugs will also go on tour to hopefully perform some of their new material. 

Still though….

 

It’s a misunderstanding. As soon as the tweets went out, I spoke to both of them on the phone. Those two guys, they’re brothers. At the end of the day, they’re brothers and it’s time to turn up right now. It’s time for all of us to turn up and stay turned up, you know what I mean? But it’s all love between those two and everybody knows that.” Rick Ross on conflict between Wale and Meek Mill. How sweet!

Did you know that Drake’s baptismal name is Aubrey Graham..
