1. Rick Ross responds to Drake with diss track

Within hours of a Drake diss track leaking that finds him sending shots at Kendrick Lamar and others, Rick Ross drops his response to Drizzy, called “Champagne Moments.” On the outro of the diss track, Rick Ross revealed an uncorroborated secret: Drake got a nose job because he didn’t want to have the same nose as his dad. The Miami rhymer added that he unfollowed Drake on Instagram because Drizzy allegedly sent a cease-and-desist letter to French Montana.

Then, over a pounding beat and violins, Ross lyrically insults Drake by calling him a “White boy” and alluding to him using ghostwriters. He also clowned Drizzy for leaking the diss track and not stepping to Ross like a man if he had an issue with him. Rick Ross’ response comes after Drake’s initial diss track was leaked on social media.

2. Shallipopi’s ‘Shakespopi’ album dominates Apple Music Naija top 100

Shallipopi has made a significant impact on the Apple Music charts with the release of his new album, “Shakespopi.” Within 48 hours of its debut, the album took over the top nine positions on the Apple Music Naija Top 100 chart. “Shakespopi” marks Shallipopi’s second studio album, arriving just two years after his rise to fame in the music industry.

However, the overwhelming popularity of Shallipopi’s new album has sparked speculations among music critics, who have suggested the possibility of an artificial boost of the songs on Apple Music known as “farming.”

The partnership will provide global distribution and label services for Stonebwoy’s upcoming sixth studio album, as well as his latest single, “Ekelebe,” featuring Nigerian rapper Odumodublvck.

“This deal marks another stride forward in bringing my music to the global stage via ADA’s network,” Stonebwoy said in a statement.

5. Monte Carlo Masters: Casper Ruud beats Novak Djokovic to set up Stefanos Tsitsipas final

Novak Djokovic says he is “not having a great season at all” after losing to Casper Ruud in the semi-finals of the Monte Carlo Masters. The world number one’s 6-4, 1-6, 6-4 loss to Norway’s Ruud follows a third-round exit at Indian Wells and a semi-final loss at the Australian Open. Also, the 36-year-old Serb is still searching for his first title of the year. “Not having a title is, compared to the last 15 years, not a great season at all,” he said. “There are positives to take away, for sure, but I’m used to a high standard in terms of expectations and results.”

Djokovic, who has an 11-4 record this year, also lost while playing for Serbia in the quarter-finals of the United Cup in January. He will hope to win a record-extending 25th Grand Slam title at next month’s French Open.
