Alcoholic beverage lines seems to be a popular trend amongst rappers. E-40 has already released a few liquor brands (Earl Stevens Collection wines, Slurricane, and E-40 malt liquor), while P. Diddy has Ciroc vodka and DeLeón Tequila and Nicki Minaj has Myx Fusions Moscato. 

Now Drake is set to become the latest rapper to unleash his own booze line. In an Instagram post last month, the rapper shared a picture of the logo for his new whiskey brand, Virginia Black, with the caption: "After that legendary moment what else is there to do but celebrate with class. Virginia Black coming soon..."

Though no release date for the amber-colored liquid has been announced, Drizzy did post another photo of the drink on his Instagram account yesterday, with the caption "First look." The brand's colors appear to be gold and black and are accompanied by a sleek, diamond-shaped logo with sans-serif font. The Instagram account for the whiskey (@virginiablackwhiskey) has only two posts, but over 2,940 followers to date.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
