This is interesting to say the least, but Drake's Pop is continuing plans for a musical project. The only thing is Drake is not going to be a part of it. Now, that's not good for business when your son is one of the top artists in the world. Anyway, Mr. Dennis Graham is not letting that stop him and has found a new classy lady to help push his project.
Here is Ze Monroe on some project with Yung Blac.
And here is a previous report:
Well, Graham tells TMZ he found his woman in rookie rapper Ze Monroe, and she's going to rhyme on his new song, "Kinda Crazy." The original plan was for Drake to guest star too, but he couldn't fit studio time into his schedule … but DG says there are no hard feelings. As for future family collabs? Dennis, who's in his early 60s, says he was asked to do a club gig near Coachella — where Drake's headlining — but adds he's not sure he can stay up that late.

Iggy Azalea speaks on sparking a change in what's accepted in Hip Hop, during interview with GQ magazine.
Whether her music career lasts for a few years or until she's in her thirties, Australian rapper Iggy Azalea recently revealed that she has "sparked a change" in what is accepted in Hip Hop.
Iggy, who says she hopes for a lengthy career, spoke on the matter during a newly-released interview with GQ magazine.
"You never know how long you'll be in people's good graces, especially in this business," Iggy said, when asked what she wants her legacy to be. "So I hope it's long—but I could be here for three or four years and then be out, like most artists. So it depends. I might be here for a long time. At the very worst, if I have a short-lived career, at least I could say I sparked a change—that I inspired some leniency in what people accept in hip-hop. And if I have a very long career and can be gyrating in a leotard at 35, that would be great."
After being accused of appropriating black culture by artists like Azealia Banks, Iggy was asked how she copes with criticism. According to the Australian musician, being nominated during award season helps her bite her tongue when it concerns criticism from fellow artists.
Azalea later declared that when she listened to Hip Hop growing up there weren't "enough characters" that represented her situation.
"Uh, awards season helps," she said. "Anytime where people get to choose who they want to have a voice and they choose me, I just think that makes it worth it. And that gives me the patience to just bite my tongue. When people choose me as the person they think should be speaking for them, I think, Well, I don't really care what someone in the industry or another artist has to say about it. Your opinion is biased anyway, because you want people to listen to your voice. So having actual people who choose me, it makes me think, I have a place, and I don't care what other people have to say about it. I was a fan of rap music growing up, and I didn't feel like there were enough characters that represented me and my situation. So I think it's needed."
