YES! Clear Soul Forces just dropped the visuals to "Ain't Playin", off their upcoming Gold PP7s project. This comes as the second release off Gold PP7s after "Beats Rhymes and Life", and once again, the Detroit-based foursome come correct. Gold PP7s is set for release on September 17th through Fat Beats, and it definitely has to be one of my most anticipated releases of the year; my expectations are high after their exceptional Detroit Revolution(s) album.

[Video] Drake brings out Kanye West, J.Cole, Miguel, Big Sean, P.Diddy & Mase, TLC at OVO FEST 2013

We wrote an article this past week on our special guests predictions at this year's OVO Fest 2013, and looking back on the list, we got 5/10 right with The Weeknd, J.Cole, Lil Wayne, French Montana, and 2 Chainz who according to Karla Moy aka Hustlegrl, 2 Chainz and PARTYNEXTDOOR were scheduled guests but couldn't perform due to unforeseen circumstances. The other special guests I don't think ANYONE could have guessed. Drake literally made history happen last night with P. Diddy and Mase performing "Mo' Money, Mo' Problems", "Feel So Good", and "Victory". Big Sean was definitely a nice surprise but TLC and Kanye West was a shock! The whole venue went crazy when we heard "New Slaves" and "No Scrubs" by TLC. I think this year Drake outdid himself and I can only imagine what he has planned going forward. As he said repeatedly he does his ONLY for the city of Toronto and the other artists let us know to appreciate how much love Drake has for his hometown.
"This one of my first mentors, one of the first people that embraced me, my role model, y’all make some noise for the god that is Kanye West." - Drake
"Me & Hov would have never made “Watch The Throne,” if this nigga (Drake) wasn’t putting pressure on us like that." – Kanye West
