Canadian broadcast exclusive with Drake | The Joking Judge


Happy Thursday! Here's what's on tap for the show today:

  • While yesterday's throne speech garnered much attention, Jian highlights in the #Qessay another statement released this week deserves our attention, too - namely: 'The statement upon conclusion of the visit to Canada,' issued by James Anaya, UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. [FULL POST]

  • Jian's special hour-long conversation with hiphop mega-star Drake, now touring behind his latest album, Nothing Was the Same. The Toronto-raised rapper has gone from being an outcast at his Toronto high school, to a successful teen TV actor, and now -- at age 26 -- a hugely-successful rapper whose confessional, vulnerable lyrical style is matched in force by his confidence and bravado as a performer and celebrity.

  • Vince August, a New Jersey judge whose sideline as a stand-up comedian put him in professional hot water...and forced him to make a choice. [FULL POST]
