If you think you havent heard of T-Minus before then I can assure you that you’ve heard his work. T-minus is the amazing producer behind hits like: DJ Khaled’s I’m On One, Lil Wayne’s She Will, Nicki Minaj’s Moment For Life and the list goes on. Check out this video via The Come Up Show where T-Minus talks about perfectionism, his creative process and producing on Drake’s latest album Take Care.
The director of the video for “The Knowing,” Mikael Colombu, disclosed on Facebook that The Weeknd’s first official video will be released this week according to HypeTrak. The Weeknd has already had an insane amount of fan-made videos for his music released, so it will be very interesting to finally see his interpretation. The Knowing was a song featured on The Weeknd’s critically acclaimed mixtape House of Balloons and my guess is that this video will be the build up for the highly anticipated 3rd mixtape Echoes of Silence; due to release “whenever The Weeknd feels like it” , according to Drake.
To get your excitement built up just a bit more, here’s some popular “un-official” videos on Youtube. The Knowing ‘official video’ is due before the week’s end(who bets on Thursday?)
The Knowing below…..

“This record is just more about the OVOXO movement and just being proud to be from Toronto. When you go outside the city, just be proud.” – Drake on the song when it premiered on Flow 93.5FM today
Being an all female team at Pretty Hype, we have to show love to Female DJ OHSO and her dope remix to The Weeknd’s song “High For This”. Hailing from Miami, Florida she mixes Drake’s hit I’m On One with High For This in a perfect head-nodding, psychedelic form that improves 2 already hot songs. This is Pretty Hype Still!
The album is finally finished and ready to be released so why not put out a trailer?It’s not everyday you see a trailer for an album but I suppose this is an interesting way to build up the excitement for Take Care . The video features some Drizzy statistics and mash-ups of all his hits and features. I like Drake but I don’t know how I feel about the video, I mean people would buy his album with or without it, anyone else agree?
Here is what Drake himself had to say about Take Care and his upcoming Tour:
“The new date for Take Care is November 15th, 2011. I managed to create this album in my hometown of Toronto and the thoughts and stories I wanted to get across just became so clear. It truly felt like when I was here 3 years ago making So Far Gone. So I have completed 19 songs (17 on physical and 2 on bonus), and have run into a roadblock of clearing 3 samples in time to make the October 24th date. My options were to take the songs off and make the birthday release happen, or to take an extra couple weeks to get the paper work right and give you the album they way I NEED you to hear it. The choice was clear as day for me. November 15th you will get Take Care the exact way I created it with no trimmings. This music means too much to me to get attached to dates and I do apologize for the delay but I promise that it is only for the benefit of our experience together. Club Paradise Tour will also be moved to when students are back from the Christmas/New Year break so that I can get to more schools. New dates will be released in the next week…see you all soon.”
The album drops November 15th, are you excited? Let us know in the comments below.
