Call us crazy but we think Drake just may be throwing some subtle shade Kanye and Kendrick’s way. A day after West dropped his new single “No More Parties in L.A.” featuring Kendrick Lamar, Drake posted a photo of his uncle Larry Graham’s album cover on his Instagram page with the caption: A Few More Parties in L.A.

Coincidental? We think not. As it turns out, Graham’s single “Stand Up and Shout About Love” from the album, One in A Million You, was sampled in Ye’s latest track.

According to Rolling Stone:

The song’s primary sample comes courtesy of Walter “Junie” Morrison, the Dayton, Ohio–born songwriter behind the first major singles for the Ohio Players, including the oft-sampled R&B classic “Funky Worm.” In this case, Madlib flipped Morrison’s 1976 solo cut “Suzie Thundertussy,” and cuts it with a Ghostface sample from Supreme Clientele‘s “Mighty Healthy” — a song Kanye previously sampled on 2012’s “New God Flow.” (To add to the matryoshka-doll-like layers, that sample is actually Ghostface quoting 1987 Divine Force single “Holy War.”) The song’s intro comes from Johnny Guitar Watson’s 1977 record “Give Me My Love,” and the bridge comes from Larry Graham (Aubrey “Drake” Graham’s uncle) — a sample of 1980’s “Stand Up and Shout About Love.”

Drake could merely be shouting out his uncle, or as we suspect, since the singing rapper still has a beef brewing with Lamar, he’s letting it be known his family will soon be propheting (and partying), thanks to the coins they receive off a Kendrick record.

Now how ironic is that?

Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!

Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.

Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”

In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.

“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”

BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
