"Look, this is the name of the game for 2014," said Mac. "D.A.D.D. Do As Drake Does. Drake got the game on lock, if you want to watch how anyone releases music and puts out an album, watch Drake."

    Recently the highly anticipated collaboration between YG and Drake, "Who Do You Love" dropped, proving to be as infectious as we might have guessed from the short snippets. Now that the song is circulating, a veteran rapper has found that Drake's lyrics closely mimic those of his own. Drake starts his verse, "I got a shorty name Texas and / She got a buddy name Young JB and now you know the deal / We turnt up in the studio late night / That's why the songs that you hear are comin' real tight."

    There seems to have been some tension between Drake and Kendrick Lamar this year, but with no one explicitly naming names, it's hard to tell how much of it is imagined by outsiders. One thing is for sure-- they haven't been giving each other many compliments. Thus, it came as a surprise when Drizzy went out of his way to praise Lamar's major label debut in a new interview with Vibe.
