    Plenty of people pay tribute to their favorite artists through tattoos, but Drake fans tend to take it to the next level. Who can forget the painful-looking forehead tattoo we saw on a woman a few years back, hell, even King Louie has been pretty liberal with his OVO face tats, considering there's been no official word on whether he's signed to the label.

    The Weeknd rose up as a largely anonymous kid from Toronto who released three epic mixtapes in 2011. March, August and December each held a release date for this dude who was mixing sounds of electronica, hip-hop, dubstep, R&B, downtempo and soul in a way that had never been done before.Well, it worked. In November of 2012 The Weeknd reissued the three mix tapes on the Triology release which donned his face on the cover. He was no longer an anonymous kid from Toronto, he was now a certified star and, in many ways, a sex symbol.

    Drake broke the Internet two nights ago by unexpectedly releasing his brand new mixtape If You're Reading This It's Too Late. It looks like Drake did the cover art himself, writing out the mixtape title in all caps above the signature 6-God prayer hands. He also included, in the same all caps chicken scratch, a very extensive list of thank yous to the people who helped him complete the project. We attempted to decipher Drake's penmanship and track down each person listed. Here goes...

    Jas Prince has been credited for discovering Drake (or at least, he'll happily take the credit), and then connecting Drake with Cortez Bryant and Lil Wayne-- which obviously led to Drizzy joining the YMCMB roster, and going on to have an extremely successful career. While the two haven't always been on good terms, what with Jas suing Drake/YMCMB back in 2012, it seems the family still sides with Drake, as Jas' father J. Prince (Rap-A-Lot Records CEO) has come to Drake's defense in a leaked diss track/rant/short clip.

    After devoting a few of the most recent editions of "Samples Of The Week" to break down sample-heavy albums by J. Cole, Lupe Fiasco. Joey Bada$$ and Fabolous, we return to the usual format this week. That means it's back to covering three big tracks that dropped this week, and this time around, they're taken from all corners of the hip-hop spectrum. First, Action Bronson paired up with The Alchemist for a dusty gem, then Cannibal Ox returned with DOOM in tow for one of their space-age anthems, and the last track on the list... well, you know what the biggest song of the week was.

    With technology at the forefront of our lives, any and everything that has happened in the world of hip hop over the course of 2014 spread through the webosphere in no time. By the end of 2013 thousands were quoting "you ain't got the answers Sway" from Kanye's infamous sit down interview on SiriusXM's Sway in the Morning, leaving a tough viral moment to outdo. But from rappers landing label deals overnight to A-list celebrities spazzing out on live TV, the possibilities were endless and completely random in 2014.

    Drake has always been pretty good at taking criticism, often participating in memes at his own expense. While Drizzy can take a joke, he can dish one out just as easily, as he displayed yesterday, when he couldn't help but comment on Kevin Hart's outfit of choice on Instagram.Drake reposted Kevin's photo of himself in a sleeveless leather shirt, adding a couple of friendly jabs in the form of hashtags. As it turns out, C. Papi wasn't the only one offended by Hart's choice, with both Meek Mill and Lil Duval echoing that the shirt has to go.
