Drake Responds To Alan Anderson Saying He's Not The GOAT Dec 19, 2015 at 05:53pm
Most would agree that Drake has been one of the most dominant rappers of the past few years, but is he ready to be included in the GOAT discussion? Many in his home city of The 6 seem to think so, including lady emcee getatKAT, who recently shared an TBT Instagram pic of her and Drake at SPiN Toronto, a ping-pong club owned by Susan Sarandon. "The GOAT of all Goats," KAT wrote in the caption. 
Hottest Albums Of 2015
Hottest Albums Of 2015 Dec 18, 2015 at 01:47pm
2015 was a pretty phenomenal year for music. After the relatively dry 2014, we thought it was a drought, but the overwhelming amount of material made making our year-end list both very easy and very difficult. On one hand, there was a wealth of album to choose from, but on the other hand, a lot of great stuff had to be left on the cutting room floor.

The Year Of Drake
The Year Of Drake Dec 9, 2015 at 04:29pm
If anything foretold the type of year Drake would have in 2015, it was the release and ensuing impact of Summer 2014's "0 To 100." Dropped off unannounced on OVO's Soundcloud while most of the rap world's eyes were on Summer Jam, the popular loosie eventually hit the radio, went platinum and scored two Grammy nominations, redefining the bounds of a non-commercial non-single.

Review: Erykah Badu's "But You Caint Use My Phone"
Review: Erykah Badu's "But You Caint Use My Phone" Dec 4, 2015 at 05:18pm
You don’t peg Erykah Badu as the type of artist to release a mixtape. Her albums are well thought-out, seemingly in every sense. They’re rich with instrumentation, passing as top-notch soul music while keeping a foot in the hip hop scene. They’ve been spaced a few years apart, presumably to get everything to sound perfect, with 100% crisp production and the type of vocal delivery that has given Badu legendary status.

ICYMI: Rick Ross Throws Shade At Drake On "Color Money" Dec 2, 2015 at 03:46pm
As you may have seen yesterday, Rick Ross released a new record off the upcoming Black Market album, "Color Money." With the album arriving in two days time, some extra hype is always nice, so it may be strategic that this latest leak takes a few shots at Drake. Then again, it was a leak that's since been taken down, so it could be inadvertent. Either way, it's got people talking.
