FYI Newsletter Shifts To A Weekly Schedule

By David Farrell

Effective today, FYI’s newsletter will be published on Thursdays only as the news team winnows down on the wide spectrum of available news and fashions it into a cogent, digestible format for our over 6,000 weekly newsletter subscribers in Canada and abroad.


The reason for reducing the schedule is to provide more thoughtful detail on stories of the day.

Bulletin breaking news stories will be published as needed, when they break, on the website and broadcast alerts will be fanned out using social media platforms that include Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

As ever, Team FYI is eternally grateful for the financial underpinning provided by Gary Slaight that has carried this Canadian music industry news report since 2012.

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
