Pepper Spray Halts Lil Wayne Party

A party crasher brought Lil Wayne’s soiree to an abrupt end when he unleashed a can of harmful pepper spray into the ventilation system.

New Song from The Weeknd – The Zone

The Weeknd has a new song out called “The Zone”. The track, which features Canadian rapper/singer Drake, comes off of the R&B singer’s latest mix tape called “Thursday”. If you’re unaware, The Weeknd is the stage name of Toronto-based artist Abel Tesfaye. Drake has always been a big supporter of The Weeknd ever since hearing his music, even before coming into the scene in March 2011. It’s actually publicity created by Drake via Twitter that pushed The Weeknd’s initial popularity. As for the song, it has a chilling vibe that’s heightened more with The Weeknd’s vocals. The verse by Drake was a nice addition to the song. I like it but I understand that it may not be everyone’s cup of tea.
