    Who Had The Better Verse: Lil Wayne Vs. Drake
    Apr 13, 2015 at 11:24am
    The chemistry between Wayne and Drake is surreal. Even though Drake is considered Lil Wayne’s protégé, he has diligently worked his way up to his boss’ level and might have even superseded him. Regardless, when Tune and Drizzy collide on a record, they always produce the best music together. Their catalog is longer than Anthony Davis’ wingspan. They have bangers like “My Darlin Baby,” “Stunt Hard,” "Used To," “Successful,” and “Unstoppable.” While they enjoy churning out goodies like Mr.

    Last night, Drake took the stage at midnight (3:00am E.T.) to close out Coachella for what promised to be one of the most exciting performances thus far. Drizzy die-hards got to hear it all, from "Trophies", to "We Made It", to his newest cuts off If You're Reading This Its Too Late, including "Madonna", after which came the surprise of the night.

    It was originally reported that Coachella would pull a fast one on the people of Earth by not live-streaming Drake's set. Thankfully, this is no longer the case. Drake will appear tonight on one of Coachella's three live webcast YouTube channels, which are all embedded below. His set is scheduled to begin at 10:15 PT.

    This week is an exciting not only due to a lot of movement in the chart, but the fact that four rap albums take up the top spots on the Billboard 200. Yes, one happens to be a soundtrack, but seeing that the tracklist is made up almost entirely of hip-hop and RnB, it's hard to see it any other way. This also happens to be the first week since it's release that Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly hasn't occupied the number one spot, being ousted by Wale's The Album About Nothing.

    Not a lot of people can captivate their listeners in the realm of R&B anymore. Do you remember when Mary J. Blige soulfully wowed us on Jay Z’s “Can’t Knock The Hustle”? Do you remember when Jamie Foxx channeled his inner Ray Charles on Kanye West’s “Gold Digger”? Times like that were special.

    In 2014, the Canadian government awarded Drake's OVO Fest $300,000, but, this year, it looks like funding for the Toronto festival will have to come out of OVO's pockets. Celebrate Ontario, the organization that awards grants to events like OVO Fest, just released its schedule of events, and the finances allocated to each, and Drake's two-day concert in downtown Toronto wasn't included on the list.

    One of the best parts of festival season these days is that you generally don't have to leave your house to take part in it. The majority of fests now offer streaming options, so you can watch many of the performances from the comfort of your couch, and over the last few years, Coachella has offered the option as well.

    Ranking Lil Wayne's 13 Mixtapes From Worst To Best
    Apr 7, 2015 at 12:30pm
    Lil Wayne didn't get the nickname "Mixtape Weezy" for nothing. Over the course of hip-hop history, very few artists have used the art of the mixtape to their advantage as well as Weezy F. It's helped to blow up the likes of Wiz Khalifa, A$AP Rocky and even Drake over the past decade, but Wayne's 13 mixtapes came when he was already a star. He didn't need the tapes to become a star, but they certainly propelled him in to GOAT territory by simply crushing the output of his competitors.

    When you have a lot of disposable income, why wouldn't you make bets with your similarly rich friends. Rappers seem to be constantly challenging one another, and depending on the rapper, it can be for some insane sums of money.Drake and The Game, while both very successful artists in their own right, decided to keep things "humble" with their bet on the recent Wisconsin/Kentucky game in the NCAA tournament.

    The biggest story from last week's charts is far-and-away Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly, which hit iTunes a week earlier than expected, which seems to have benefitted the LP, despite a rocky start to the release. K-Dot has earned his very first #1 album with TPAB, smashing Spotify streaming records over the first two days of its release, and pulling a feat Madonna could not a week earlier, unseating the Empire soundtrack.

    OVO Sound is a label founded by Drake, Noah "40" Shebib, and Oliver El-Khatib in 2012. The label consists of Drake and in-house producers 40, Boi-1da, T-Minus, Mike Zombie. PartyNextDoor, Majid Jordan, ILoveMakonnen and OB O'Brien are also affiliated with the crew. Today we're comparing 40 and Boi-1da. Not because we have to decide if one is better than the other, but because we're hip hop nerds who are always thinking critically about one of the dopest art forms to come out of America. Period.

    As much as Drake insists on calling If You're Reading This It's Too Late a mixtape, it's release has been anything but. After putting the project out as a paid download on iTunes in February, the nearly-platinum project will reportedly be headed to shelves in April, with two bonus cuts in tow.

    Nardwuar's 5 Most Memorable Interviews

    As Drake said after he concluded his first interview with Nardwuar, a Canadian man who rocks a tartan hat and calls himself the "Human Serviette," "this guy is a legend." There's really no better way to put it: this guy's interviewed everyone from Nirvana to N*E*R*D, and always seems to unearth facts that no other interviewer in the game can. His earnest personality can throw some artists for a loop, but it doesn't take long to realize that despite the quirks, this man is one of the best in the business.
