Drake and LeBron James Jr. Are Exchanging Playful Trash Talk Over Cavs-Raptors Series

Between Drake in Toronto and Kevin Hart in Philadelphia, two of the NBA's biggest celebrity fans have found themselves utterly silenced in the second round of the playoffs. In Drake's case, his Raptors have played the Cleveland Cavaliers tough, but they've fallen into a daunting, 3-0 hole after narrow losses in Games 1 and 3.

At this point, everyone is throwing dirt on the Boy—even LeBron James Jr., a.k.a. Bronny. Drake put up a photo on the 'gram Monday morning…


Keep it that way.

…and Bronny slid into the comments with a little trash talk on behalf of his father. “Your season ends tonight,” he commented. Drake responded with a joke of his own.

The internet is an incredible place. As Bronny noted, the Cavs could close out the Raptors Monday night. They'll square off in Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland at 8:30 p.m. ET. The game will air on TNT.

What a depressing ending a sweep would be for Toronto fans, who watched the Raptors piece together their best regular season in franchise history en route to claiming the No. 1 seed. Is it time for the Raptors to blow it up? Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer published a good breakdown answering that question over the weekend.

Boston holds a commanding, 3-0 lead in the other East series. The Celtics will look to close out Philly Monday at 6 p.m. ET. That game will also air on TNT.

J. Cole Just Announced Dreamville Festival

J. Cole has announced the first annual Dreamville Festival, which will take place Sept. 15 in Raleigh, North Carolina. Sign-up for pre-sale access to tickets is available on the official website. According to the News & Observer, it will be a multi-stage festival.

This festival adds a new element to Cole's productivity recently. Exactly one week ago, on April 20, he released his newest project, KOD. Right out the gate, KOD broke Apple Music's record for the most album streams in the first 24 hours of its release, knocking Drake's Views from the top spot. The title track “KOD” also broke a U.S. Spotify record previously held by Taylor Swift for the biggest opening day. With stats like that, it looks like the projections that show the album ready to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart are correct.

What's more, Cole has already promised a deluxe version of the album is on its way, with brand new tracks that didn't make the first cut. The rapper has also released two new videos: “ATM” and “Kevin's Heart,” the latter of which stars Kevin Hart in one of the greatest music video puns of all time.
