    Vote For Your Favorite Drake Feature Of 2014

    Without releasing an album, Drake has completely dominated the first two thirds or so of 2014, staying on the tip of everyone's tongues by delivering unexpected fireballs like "0 To 100/The Catch Up" and "Draft Day." But more so than anything else, the reason Drake's been able to stay relevant this year is his insane gift for picking features.

    Drake first brought the term "YOLO" to the masses with his 2011 single "The Motto." While it's a fairly obvious statement-- You Only Live Once-- we'd never before seen it shortened to an acronym which we could hashtag all the time and use on a daily basis. At this point, everyone and their mother knows what the term YOLO means, even the Oxford Dictionary.

    I Am Music. The title of Lil Wayne’s 2008-2009 national tour needed no further explanation. Wayne, who had just released his Grammy Award-winning album Tha Carter III, had the rap game on lockdown. Using binoculars, it still would’ve been hard to see stragglers such as actor-turned-rapper Drizzy Drake in Wayne’s rearview. Drake, who hadn’t yet released his 2009 breakthrough mixtape So Far Gone, was still a no-name rapper to the greater half of the hip-hop community. Fast forward five years later, oh how the tables have turned.

    Drake Was Not Likening Rihanna To Satan At OVO Fest

    Drake is known for his subliminals, and as a result, fans often jump to conclusions with every second or third person pronoun he uses in a verse. The latest example of such came not with a line, but an image. During his performance of "Days In The East" at his annual OVO Fest, Drake had a screen behind him which briefly flashed Rihanna's image amidst the repeated number 6. Conspiracy theorists quickly concocted a story that Drizzy was equating his former flame to the devil, using the number "666".

Lil Wayne" tour. They made the live debut of recently-released Carter V single "Grindin'," and tore through a 2-hour-plus set that pitted them against each other.

Days after being dumped by Karrueche Tran, the R&B star's hopes of performing with Drake at Toronto's OVO Fest on Monday have been crushed, thanks to the criminal record that seemingly follows him everywhere.

    Samples Of the Week: July 24
    Jul 24, 2014 at 10:11am
    When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".
