    How the hell did we make it through fifty percent of 2015 already? June has seemingly crept up out of nowhere, marking the halfway checkpoint of a year that, so far, has been ripe with exceptional releases from some of hip-hop’s brightest emcees. Releases-- highly anticipated or dropped by surprise, some commercial mixtapes and some full albums -- have infused the year with some fun that surely help the time pass as we approach the new year.

    Drake has been a busy man these past few days. The OVO crooner not only held a massive celebrity-filled party at his L.A. mansion over the weekend, which featured guests Kanye West, Amber Rose, Travis Scott, the Game, French Montana, and more, but he also apparently shot a new music video with the Game for an upcoming song called “100”.

    There aren't a lot of things to hate on Canada for. The home of great healthcare coverage, genuinely friendly people, and Drake generally has a pretty good reputation, but as polite as its residents may be, anyone who lives there will tell you that Air Canada totally sucks.

    Sprite has always had a connection to rap music. As an advertiser, they were one of the first brands to promote their product with the assistance of rappers, and to specifically target an urban audience in so doing. Not only that, but when most brands did try to incorporate rappers into their ad campaigns they went the mainstream, pop-friendly route, whereas Sprite tapped more credible, "real" hip-hop artists such as Curtis Blow and Heavy D. Thus it may come as no surprise that they're digging into their hip-hop roots once more with their latest ad campaign, "Obey Your Verse."

    In 2011, The Weeknd released a trio of mixtapes that would eventually become known as The Trilogy. Arriving at the same time as electronic music was starting to really blow up in America, the dense, thick, dubby, druggy sound was a huge hit in the underground, and it didn't take long for the mainstream to catch on.

    Ever since The Weeknd turned down a deal with OVO, it's been clear that there's some bad blood between him and Drake, but between a recent hint at new collabs and this Apple conference today, it's looking more and more like they've patched things up.

    Wearing some very tight black jeans, Drake took the stage Friday night on Randall's Island in NYC to headline the opening day of Governor's Ball 2015. Old jams, slow jams, new jams, Drake left no stone unturned as he opened it all off with "Legend" before entertaining the Gov Ball faithful with "Trophies," "HYFR," Big Sean's "Blessings," and much more. Vibe reports that he had "the crowd eating from the palm of his hand."

    After a few uneventful weeks on the charts, ASAP Rocky and Boosie Badazz brought some much-needed excitement with their strong debuts. Each a respective triumph, Rocky took the number one spot, while Boosie moved in comfortably at number 3. While it didn't qualify for the Billboard 200, it should also be noted that Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment's SURF pulled in over 600,000 downloads on iTunes, making it (in some capacity) the biggest release of the week.

    In the R&B game, there's no one hotter than Tinashe. Last fall, the 22-year-old L.A. singer blew us away with her debut album, Aquarius, which is still spawning hits, such as "All Hands On Deck," which just got a remarkable new video.

    Earlier this afternoon XXL unveiled their 2015 XXL Freshmen cover after much anticipation. The cover's been a long time coming, with artists pushing for their spot several months ago. The Freshmen class includes a few unsurprising names, such as Fetty Wap, DeJ Loaf, OG Maco and Tink, and a few from left-field like GoldLink and Kidd Kidd, although, that tends to be the case every year.

    The first thought that went through many peoples minds when they saw the Tidal team standing on stage (after cracking an Illuminati joke, that is) was "where's Drake?". The rapper's absence was definitely noticed, but no direct explanation was ever given about whether or not he was approached to be a part of the project.

    A History Of Drake Showing Love On Tour

    Drake stays true to the three words he lent to Juvenile's Rich Gang single "Show Me Love." "I Show Love" is mantra he lives by when he's in the 6 and when he's on the road. Drake rarely mentioned his Canadian identity during the beginning of his career, setting himself apart from most city-repping, street-affiliated rappers. Since, he's gone on to dedicate himself to "the 6," giving Toronto that universally-recognized nickname and anointing himself the "6 God."

    It’s often said “the grass is always greener on the other side." Hell, Ludacris has a track named after the phrase. Maybe that’s why it seems as though everyone in Hollywood wants to be in the music industry and everybody in the music industry wants to be in Hollywood (I mean, Luda of all people would understand).

    Drake is well-known showing love to each city he visits while on tour. He recently shouted-out young rapper Amir Obe while in Detroit, and on Friday (May 29), during a stop in Chicago, he paid homage to a bigger rap star, Chief Keef, giving the crowd a rendition of the South Sider's latest hit, "Faneto."  Drake took the time to show love to many young Chi rappers, specifically shouting-out Herb, Bibby, Keef, and even 14-year-old Lil Mouse. He then, much to the crowd's delight, proceeded to belt out a bar-for-bar a cappella verse from "Faneto."
