Kanye West's album, "Ye," is already crushing numbers ... and it's only been available for a few days.
A discussion turned to violence between two rising stars in the hip-hop community on Saturday, June 2.
Drake's done more than just financially support his baby mama and her son ... he's pulled out all the stops to be with him almost since birth.
Sources connected to Sophie Brussaux tell TMZ ... Drizzy wasn't present when she gave birth, but he's been actively involved since a paternity test confirmed he's the father. Our Drake sources say no paternity test has been taken yet ... but Sophie has a different story.
We're told Drake met his alleged son, Adonis, shortly after the test and has seen him multiple times.
Our sources say Drake's flown Sophie and Adonis to be with him. We're told Drake chartered a private jet for them on Christmas. Again, Drake has not publicly acknowledged he's the dad.
And get this ... Adonis was born on October 24 ... Drake's birthday. On top of that ... they also share the same initials (ADG) and last name, Graham.
Chief Keef got shot at early Saturday morning in NYC, but fortunately the shooter -- or shooters -- missed ... TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us ... Keef was shot at around 6 AM outside the W Hotel in Times Square. We're told a shell casing was discovered and police are looking for 2 black males wearing black hoodies who fled the scene.
Our sources say the bullet missed the rapper and struck hotel signage. It's unclear how many shots were fired at this time. Chief's staying at the hotel and was returning after a night out when he was shot at.
What's interesting -- Chief Keef's been in an apparent heated beef on social media with Tekashi69, but we're told at this point there's no connection between that and the shooting. Our sources say 6ix9ine is currently in L.A.
Over the weekend, 6ix9ine released his single, "TATI" with DJ SpinKing. Surprisingly, the days leading up to it's release, he didn't spark any beef or fire shots at anyone in order to have a successful single. Shortly afterwards, it seems as if his beef with Chicago rappers have kicked off, once again. 6ix9ine hit Instagram to call out Chief Keef and Lil Reese and essentially said that they aren't living the same things they're rapping about.
6ix9ine made it back to the 'Gram to call out Chief Keef and Lil Reese shortly after he announced that he didn't have to spark beef to sell records. The rapper was in New Jersey with his Tr3yway homies as well as Cuban Doll sitting next to him.
"Nobody give a fuck about what y'all n*ggas did three years a go." he said, "What y'all did four years a go, three years a go, live in y'all raps, y'all don't do. I know that personally."
He continued to call them out for not doing anything to him despite the threats before naming Reese and Chief Keef.
"Fuck Chief Keef. Fuck Lil Reese. Fuck all them n*ggas. Fuck y'all n*ggas talkin' about?" He said, "I bet y'all n*ggas [won't] pull up to New Jersey now. Jersey ain't even my city but my brothers out here, you heard me."
Shortly after, he posted another FaceTime conversation with Tadoe. 6ix9ine continued to ask where Tadoe is so they can presumably settle everything face to face.
