This week in Hip-Hop we’ve seen quite a lot happening from new music release teasers, to a street being renamed after a Hip-Hop legend, to new scented candles being released from a Toronto Hip-Hop heavyweight, let’s get into it!
First off, let’s start with DJ Khaled, arguably one of the most renowned Hip-Hop producers of all time and undoubtedly so for this era. He posted a video clip to Instagram on March 22nd, 2021 that had him and Migos in studio and used the caption “IM IN #ALBUMMODE #KHALEDKHALED”, which is a clear indication that there is a collaboration happening with them for his upcoming album “Khaled Khaled“.

If this hasn’t gotten you feeling excited yet, DJ Khaled also revealed on March 23rd, 2021 that two other music industry heavyweights, H.E.R. and Post Malone, have sent him their vocal stems!
Another important moment in Hip-Hop that has happened this week is that Big Punisher (Big Pun) received some huge recognition in his home borough as an intersection in the Bronx was named after this iconic figure in Hip-Hop. The intersection of Fordham Road and Grand Concourse was renamed after Big Pun and will now forever be “Big Pun Plaza“.
The last thing we’re going to focus on for this week is that Drake has previewed a wide variety of…wait for it…self-scented candles on Instagram! He is evidently somebody who really cares about fragrances as he launched the Better World Fragrance House and the line of candles which will reportedly smell just like he does. Champagne Papi took to his Instagram story last night (March 25th, 2021) to preview the Williamsburg Sleepover fragranced candle which will release as part of his upcoming line.
