"Now why'd drake have to bring sza's good name out like that," one social media user tweeted on Friday. The user adding "HES LYING YOUR HONOR" in a separate post.

"A song that mark ran last night on night owl sound live set shouldn't have been played. It's a song that leaked 3 years ago and got scrapped shortly after. He was just going too deep in the Drake/Future catalogue. Last thing I'd want to do is wake up having any friends of mine feeling disrespected so I just had to say that to start the day."

Celebrities and pro athletes are sweating bricks after a prestigious law firm that represents them was hacked and their personal data was compromised.

The hackers threaten to release the personal data to the public if $21 million ransom isn't paid very soon.

Hackers infiltrated the computer systems of Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks, a law firm based in New York City that represents a long list of high-powered VIPs, corporations, A- and B-list celebrities and pro athletes.

The hackers used a phishing link in an email to trick an employee into giving them access to the company servers. Then they downloaded over 756 GIGs of data including contracts and personal e-mails sent and received by clients, according to Page Six.

Now the hackers are demanding $21 million ransom to restore the data and unlock the firm's website, which is down.

The long list of clients include Drake, LeBron James, Elton John, Lady Gaga, Barbra Streisand, Nicki Minaj, Mike Tyson, Maria Carey, Mary J. Blige, Spike Lee, Lil Nas X, and many more.

The corporations repped by the law firm include MTV, HBO, EMI Music, Playboy Enterprises, Spotify, and more.

The law firm can't access any client files online because the hackers have the files encrypted. Only the hackers can access the files.

The police are powerless to help the law firm because the hackers are based in Russia or some other far flung country.

The police usually advise hacked hospitals, municipalities, and corporations to pay the ransom.

Some social media users are hoping the law firm doesn't pay the ransom so they can learn if LeBron is indeed paying child support for a love child.

Music critics have spoken, and they say Drake's latest musical offering, Dark Lane Demo Tapes, is the worst of his career.

To be fair, Drake probably produced and mixed all the songs himself while on quarantine at his mansion in Toronto.

The Pop Hob tweeted:

"Drake's newest mixtape 'Dark Lane Demo Tapes' debuted with a score of 56 on metacritic, making it the rappers worst project to date & earning its spot as the worst album released this year beating out Justin Bieber’s changes."

Rolling Stone magazine gave Drake's mixtape a 60 metascore: "The project, a grab bag of new songs, leaks, and material previously teased on Instagram Live, is often bittersweet and deeply contemplative, even by Drake's standards."

One metascore critic wrote: "For me, this album was a very easy way for Drake to drop something. Most of these songs aren't well executed and this album will probably flop..."

Another critic wrote: "Dull, boring, horrible, always the same, completely been done before, terrified to reference or not reference."

Drake enjoyed unprecedented success as a hip-hop artist after the release of his first album Thank Me Later in 2010, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard chart.

His follow-up albums Take Care (2011) and Nothing Was the Same (2013) sold millions of copies, as did his first commercial mixtape If You're Reading This It's Too Late (2015).

Listen to the mixtape below.

Drake shared a first picture of himself with his 2-year-old son Adonis, alongside an emotional message detailing his thoughts on fatherhood and the coronavirus pandemic.

The 33-year-old rapper, who is rumored to be bisexual, fathered the curly-haired toddler with unemployed adult movie actress and French artist Sophie Brussaux in October 2017.

The Toronto lyricist initially denied he was Adonis's dad after Sophie tried to obtain a DNA test to establish paternity.

Drake was forced to acknowledge his son after rap rival Pusha T revealed the surprise news in a 2018 diss track. Now Drake seems to be fully embracing being a dad.

The "Hotline Bling" hitmaker posted a picture of Adonis sitting on his knee on his Instagram page on Monday. He also shared his thoughts about fatherhood and the coronavirus pandemic.

"What is most important for you right now is to connect to your own inner light. This will create the biggest opening of all. Trust that you have all of the power within to make this happen, and in order to do that connect to the people and things that bring you a lot of joy."

The star went on to tell fans to "break free of the wheel of suffering and panic and open up to your own light" in a reference to those struggling with self-isolation or sickness.

He added:

"Laughter is your best medicine, but tears can also be a powerful release. Let go of any judgment you may have around that. Remember that you are never alone, and if you need to be reminded of that ask for support and it will show up."

Drake, pictured with his mother, Sandi Graham in Oct. 2019, hinted he is struggling with self-quarantine away from his loved ones in his Toronto mansion: "I love and miss my beautiful family and friends and I can't wait for the joyful day when we are all able to reunite."

Drake previously confessed to having past difficulties with Sophie, but he told LeBron James on his HBO series "The Shop" that he would always have "unconditional love" for her as she is the mother of his only child.
