Jay-Z Not Buying Tupac Shakur’s Unreleased Music

This may be a good thing for Jay-Z not to purchase because of his image and status. Not only is he not on +Tupac Amaru status, +Jayz Carter is publicly known for having former beef with Tupac. Rumors that hip-hop mogul Jay Z and Roc Nation have purchased the music catalog of Tupac Shakur‘s unreleased material for $384 million are not true, Billboard has confirmed.

The false rumors began surfacing on social media Saturday (March 28) that Jay Z had purchased Shakur’s unreleased work from Entertainment One. Some reportsalso noted that a new album from the late rapper — titled And Now I Rise – would be released in 2016, with features by Snoop Dogg, Drake, Nas, The-Dream, DMX, Beyonce and Jay Z.

As the 20th anniversary of the Shakur’s September 1996 death approaches, elements in the works include new apparel rolling out later in 2015, collections like a recent Grammy Museum exhibit showcasing his writing, and a biography by a “very serious writer” whose deal is being finalized, Jampol recently told Billboard.

Drake Goes Platinum

+Young Money artist +Drizzy Drake has just went platinum. Even before the official physical release, Drake‘s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late has gone platinum. Earlier this week, Drake announced that the mixtape/album would be hitting store shelves along with two bonus tracks.

Drake released the project as a surprise back on February 13th, and has since sold 1,011,041 copies. It sold 535,000 copies in its first week, debuting at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100. Also, the surprise release shot 14 Drake songs into the Hot 100, which tied a long-standing Beatles record (51 years, to be exact).

It’s expected that Drake will perform songs from If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late at both Coachella (April 12th) and his own OVO Fest (August 2nd). Let’s not forget about Views From The 6, which is Drake’s long-awaited studio album, rumored for a release sometime in late 2015. Could Drake go platinum twice in one year?
