Drake’s Tour To Have a Charitable Cause

Posted by T.K Taylor on September 18, 2010

Drake is set to embark on his “The Light Dreams & Nightmares” Tour. The campaign kicks off with two sold out shows in Miami on September 20 – 21, 2010, at the “James L. Knight Center” and will wrap up on November 6, 2010 at the “The Joint” in Las Vegas, NV.

We are excited to announce that Drake’s charitable partner for The Light Dreams & Nightmares Tour dates will be SickKids Foundation, with a portion of proceeds from from every concert ticket sold going to the Friends of Music Therapy Endowment Fund at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) in Toronto, Canada. This fund supports the delivery of the Music Therapy Program at SickKids to its most critically ill patients including children being treated for cancer and organ transplant, and those in palliative care. Fans who would like to make additional donations to the program can do so by visiting http://www.sickkidsfoundation.com/drake .

T.I. Covers Upscale Magazine (September / October 2010)

Posted by yoMcLovin on September 1, 2010

Clifford is on two covers of the September and October issue of Upscale magazine.

On his new album:
This project just like all of my projects will be a open window into my life, what I’m going through, how I feel and where I am right now.

On where he is:
I’m still learning and growing everyday. I do believe this project is in some ways the final installment of a trilogy. TI vs. TIP being the first one…. I hope that events of my life are captured in music in all of my records. So they were there for the beginning, they saw the middle (with Paper Trail) and now the only thing left to be seen is the conclusion.

On the advice he’d give to young Clifford Harris:
I would say man, if you knew what I knew, you would chill out… I would tell myself you’re going to be alright later on, all you have to do is cool out, you might not see it right now, but you have a reason to fall back. I just hope that I would listen.

On his best and worst character traits:
I can manage to be arrogant or confident as well as be humble and possess a certain level of humility. I can be aggressive and I can also be mild mannered.

On his future in hip hop:
I know I still have the ability to do it, but I don’t know if I have as much passion to do it as I once did… I might find that I’m more effective in another capacity, but I won’t know if I don’t ever try. I have other talents and abilities that I may not be paying any attention to because I have this first one that I’m very fond of and I’ve grown attached to… As an artist I still would like to be better, but as an artist, I think TI has had a stellar career already.

On loyalty getting in the way of business:
…If I say I’m gonna ride with you, I’m gonna ride with you. That’s personally, professionally. So even if I know that you might not be all what everyone else thinks you’re cracked up to be, I’m still gonna ride it out with you. It does get tiresome and it does get gruesome at time, but I don’t know no other way to be.

On being a daddy:
I make them look up different places and ask them where would they like to go. I just spend time with them. I try to stimulate their interests and build on that.

On his favorite quality in a woman:
Just having that instinct of when to take charge and when to fall back.

Skype has some competition as Google Inc. new VIOP services

Posted by yoMcLovin on August 26, 2010

Hello, Skype, is Google there?

Google Inc. said that users of Gmail will now be able to call telephones directly from their e-mail, putting it in direct competition with Web calling service Skype and companies such as AT&T Inc.  

While Google had already offered computer-to-computer voice and video chat services; starting yesterday, it said that it will allow calls to home phones and mobile phones directly from Gmail for the first time.

Google promised free calls to U.S. and Canadian phones from Gmail for the rest of this year and said that it would charge low rates for calls made to other countries.

For example, it said that calls to the U.K., France, Germany, China and Japan would be as low as two cents per minute.

Google also said that making a call works like a normal phone, in that a user could click on the “call phone” option in their chat buddy list and type the number or enter a contact’s name.

Skype, owned by private equity firms and eBay Inc., has long allowed consumers to make phone calls from computers, as well as computer-to-computer voice and video calls. Skype said it aims to raise as much as $100 million in a public share offering.
