ISIS : A Brief History Crime, International, News

The Islamic State of Iraq and Sham has claimed responsibility for Wednesday’s attack in London, England.

Drake releases More Life, Twitter goes nuts Arts & Entertainment, News

At long last, Drake has blessed his fans with More Life.
The 22-track project released Saturday, although it was expected to drop in December.

Some die-hard fans grew frustrated as the Toronto-native habitually put off the release date. Other fans, like Buffalo, N.Y. rapper Bobby Foulton, a.k.a. imboyfriend, were still eager to listen, but were understanding.

“It didn’t take long for what it is. 22 songs is a big project.” said Foulton, a Drake fan of eight years. “I guess in 2017, it’s easier for an artist to do more music in a shorter time, but I’m the type to wait on something that’s going to be great vs. something rushed.”
Whether it was worth the wait or not is up for debate, but one thing is for sure: fans and critics alike took to social media to sound off, with over 15 million tweets and counting revolving around More Life.

Art Hut closing but Queen St. West will survive Arts & Entertainment, News

The Gladstone Hotel’s Art Hut project will be coming to an end this April, and will soon become the home to another condo.

The six-month pop-up initiative looked to “animate the currently empty property” directly across from the hotel at Queen Street West and Gladstone.

“It’s been fantastic,” said Christina Zeidler, the president of The Gladstone Hotel. “We’ve had everything from artists using the space as residency space, or people having something that was just a pure installation and people could come and look at it.”

But come May, the art space will be replaced with a sales centre and then later on by a 16-storey condo.
