Singer Dave Hollister has been in the music industry for some time. In fact, he was working in the industry before many of today’s new artist were born. While his determination to remain true to his artistry hasn’t earned him much pop success, he hasn’t allowed himself to be swallowed up by the industry. To many, he may always been seen as the lead singer of Blackstreet. The Chicago native has expanded his horizons by acting for several years, more recently playing his best friend, the late Gerald Levert in the play “Baby Hold On To Me”. This fall, Hollister will hit the stage along with Musiq Soulchild, Chrisette Michele, MC Lyte, Raheem DeVaughn and Marsha Ambrosious in the stage production “Love Jones The Musical”. His forthcoming album “MANuscript” will be released on Sept. 9. Without question, Hollister’s fans can expect to see and hear a great deal from him in the coming months. Crooner Tory Lanez’ debut album will be released soon, but in the meantime, the singer will be heading out on a headlining tour. Fresh off the “Level Up Tour” with A$AP Ferg, the Toronto native is launching his own tour titled “I Told You”, named after his debut album. The 76 date trek, which will include special guest Veecee, will begin today at the Wayhome Music & Arts Festival in Oro-Medonte , Ontario. From there, Lanez is set to travel across North American through December, which will include stops at  Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Made in America and the Mad Decent Block Party. The remaining 21 dates will be announced later this year. Tickets are available via IToldYouTour.com. Lanez will release “I Told You” on Aug. 19 on Benny Blanco’s Mad Love imprint, distributed by Interscope Records. The Joe Budden/Drake beef was escalated to a new level last during  Drake and Future’s “Summer Sixteen Tour” stop in Dallas. During his set at the American Airlines Center, Drake mocked the Slaughterhouse MC’s 2003 hit “Pump It Up”, calling him out by name. It wasn’t a lengthy rant, but it was a snarky jab nevertheless. Now out of prison after serving a three year sentence stemming from a weapons charge, rapper Gucci Mane is back. His current album “Everybody Looking” is now available and only time will tell what’s next for the Atlanta MC.
