What's up essence live. We are back with one of my favorite parts of each and every show slayed or shade, and I have some characters up here today. Joining me we have entertainment editor Yolanda Sanguini. Give it up for her. Come on y'all can do better than that. [APPLAUSE] And this trouble maker right here in the middle. Who, me? Yeah you, celebrity stylist and you may not know him but you definitely know his work. He's worked with Taraji, Jessie Smallet, he slays it, Warry Vine. Ow, y'all didn't clap like y'all were alive out there. Are we at the Essence Fest or no? [APPLAUSE] Cuz, there's a whole bunch of people in front of me, but I can't even hear them. Can't hear them. I see you, but I don't hear you. That's shade. [LAUGH] That was shade. Shade. And you just heard this beautiful songstress, whose EP is out right now. Justine Sky, thank you for joining us. [APPLAUSE] Shady Now are you all ready to play Slayed or Shade? Yeah. Let's do it. So here's how it works for those of you who don't know, but all of you should know. I'm gonna talk about a couple of topics in pop culture, news, and entertainment and you guys are gonna let me know if it slays, which is good, or if it shades, which is bad or not so good. So, Here we go. The first one I think is a little comical myself. Your boy Drake a.k.a. Champagne Poppy, has been doing the most on Instragram. He's grown a beard, he's trying to get his [UNKNOWN] sexy on. Working on his body. And he's posting quite a few pictures. A lot of the pictures have gone viral. Is it a [UNKNOWN]? Because you know what, it's a good look for him and it's always good to improve yourself and work on yourself. Or is it a shade cause you know what? He might be a little thirsty. Let me know what you think. I like how you just fixed it, okay. [NOISE] We got a slayed, slayed. Everyone says they're slaying. Okay, let's start with you Yolanda. We can say Drake is thirsty at all, so I think, It's just to show that you're improving yourself. I like it. I co-sign. I feel like there's quite a bit of water being thrown at Drake. If you know what I'm saying? Okay. Well, we know that he obeys his thirst with Sprite. So, that's already different. He's putting himself together. I mean, he's exhibiting it for the world. If you look good, feel good, show it off. Why not? You think it's a good look for him, stylists? He looks like a grown up now. That's a good point. Alright. Cool. He looks like a grown up. He doesn't look like a little boy no more. [INAUDIBLE] I support it. Uh-huh. Justine? Yeah, I think Drake looks good. That's it. Short, straight, and to the point. [CROSSTALK] Throw the mic down. Okay.

We’d like to think Drake is a pretty stand-up guy, so his recent decision not to send a fan to jail comes as no surprise.

Earlier this week a Pennsylvania woman broke into his home, but instead of stealing jewelry or money, she drank. As authorities reported, the young lady put on one of the rapper’s hoodies and drank a Pepsi, Sprite and Fiji Water.

She was found by one of Drake’s friends, who called the police.

Now, TMZ is reporting that Drake will not press charges against the girl. They say his attorney contacted the Los Angeles County district attorney to let them know he would not be filing charges. 

Drake believes the woman has mental issues and thinks it would be cruel to make her a felon and send her to prison for the April 3 incident where no one was hurt, the celebrity news site reports. 

We guess it’s safe to say Drake is here for real criminal justice reform.
