Video: P. Reign f/ Drake – ‘DnF’

Drake and P. Reign

Reps-Up meets OVO in the Drake-directed video for “DnF.” The Canadian comrades put work on “pause mode” and hit the sandy beaches of St. Maarten for some rest and relaxation, but the only thing missing is some female company.

That quickly changes when Drake tells his pal about a couple young tings that he heard about in town. Before you know it, P. Reign is making love to one buxom lady in the pool, while Drake holds it down in the bedroom. But was it all a dream?

“This is really just a record about having fun and letting loose. It was inspired by every day shit,” P. Reign told The FADER. “F**k the stress, the bullshit, and everything that goes with it. Let those inhibitions go and just have a good time.”

The original song, which also features Future, can be found on P. Reign’s EP Dear America.

Behind the Video: P. Reign f/ Drake – ‘DnF’

P. Reign and Drake

P. Reign escaped to the island of St. Maarten while shooting the sunny video for his Drake and Future-assisted single “DnF.” The Canadian rapper was joined by fellow Toronto native Drake, who came up with the tropical treatment. The fellas chilled poolside with a couple bikini-clad babes and soaked up the lush landscape.

“This is the first video we’ve done together, which is exciting because we’ve known each other for a long time,” said Drake.

The song can be found on P. Reign’s EP Dear America, which also features Meek Mill, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and A$AP Rocky.

Go behind the scenes with Reps-Up and OVO.

Chris Brown Talks Jail, Lean Addiction, Rihanna, & Drake with Ebro

Chris Brown

Chris Brown stopped by Hot 97′s “Ebro in the Morning” on Friday for an in-depth interview. The “Loyal” singer, who recently settled his lawsuits including the one in D.C., opened up about everything from his past with Rihanna to squashing his beef with Drake to his time in jail.

During his sit-down with Ebro, Peter Rosenberg, and Laura Stylez, Breezy admitted that he was unsure where his career would take him after jail. “Once you do that, it kinda makes you mature faster and see what’s really important and what your focus is and what you gotta do in your career,” he said.

It was Drake’s camp who initially reached out about the ESPYS skit. So far, Nicki’s single “Only” is the only collaboration the two have recorded. When asked if there will be more he said, “Hopefully. They gotta cut the check.”

The most Chris charges for a feature is $250,000, and he demands a cut of the publishing. “If I’ma give you a No. 1, I need to capitalize off it as well,” he said.

He claimed that he lost $20 million in endorsements due to his bad reputation, but said that he makes 50 percent of all sales off his album.

He and Trey Songz are gearing up to launch their joint tour. The tour does not have a title, but he has been considering “One Night Stand” and “The Morning After” as potential names for the two-hour show.

He also revealed that he was addicted to lean (“the hood cocktail”) and found it impairing his work. “I was turning up. I was off the syrup and Xanax,” he said. “It wasn’t conducive to me. I was falling asleep on video sets, I was cussing people out randomly, I was doing crazy stuff.”

Through his trials and tribulations, he’s learned to be comfortable in his own skin. “I don’t have to prove myself,” said Chris. “I’m comfortable being a singing, dancing, painting, great guy. I don’t have to be tough.”

Plus, hear what he had to say about his girlfriend of four-and-a-half years Karrueche Tran, battling Usher in a dance-off, and what he fears most.
