Staff Picks Playlist (January 22)
Some cool shit happened this past week. That Kanye West "Black Skinhead" remix with Miley Cyrus and Travis Scott finally surfaced. Meek Mill and 50 Cent got deep into it, so deep, that Meek accepted defeat at Fif's continuous-meme-creating-hands. There was yet another new mixtape from rap MVP Future.

Future Says He “Aint Done Yet”; Purple Reign Just A “Pre-Warm Up”
With Purple Reign still fresh in rotation, it looks like Future may have more music in stored for us. Taking to twitter Tuesday night, the ATL rapper says he’s “not done yet,” and that “Purple Reign” (which he substituted with the great umbrella emoji) is just a “pre warm up….get ready.” While we know nothing of this next project, it appears Future is looking to carry over his unstoppable run from 2015 into 2016.
Top Tracks: January 11 - January 17
Another week, and the rap game ain't slowing down. TDE proved its youngest member is one of its most prized assets, Tyga finally dropped his mixtape, Mike Will seriously upped the expectations for Ransom 2, and a random Thugger leak managed to crack the Top 5. And that was before the weekend...
Top 5 Beats From Future's "Purple Reign"
As if you needed one more reason to go see Future live on his "Purple Reign" tour with Ty Dolla $ign, the rapper decided to come through with a Purple Reign mixtape early Sunday morning. The ATL crooner already has enough material for any one fan to want to see him perform live, but Purple Reign just gave fans thirteen more reasons (maybe ten or eleven depending on if you fucked with the entire mixtape or not-- I've seen some division amongst fans in terms of how hard this project goes).
Future Hive Goes In On Russell Wilson With Memes
In case you aren’t a football fan, the Seattle Seahawks lost to the Carolina Panthers in a game that was a lot less close than the score appeared. That’s not (really) what this story is about though.
Future Is About To Drop "Purple Reign" Mixtape

Behind The Beat: DJ Spinz
Atlanta has a rich history of rap, but in recent years it's become known for producing a large number of stars and hits through its very supportive, collaborative and creative music scene. While vocalists remain the face of music from the region, its success depends greatly on a network of producers and DJs, many of whom help in the process of finding and developing new talent, and ultimately breaking records and artists.

2016 is looking like it's gonna be a fast year. Yeezy decided to become the year's frontrunner after jumping over Jumpman on New Year's Eve, and somehow, he outdid himself the next week, dropping a two-in-one package that had one of the craziest debuts in HNHH history -- and continues to do huge numbers.
TMI: When Rappers Overshare On Social Media
One of the main things that fueled Future's career reinvention, which began with Monster, and dominated the majority of 2015, was his breakup with Ciara, his onetime fiancée and mother of the most recent of his four children.
Charts Don't Lie: January 6th
We didn't see many debuts this week, but pretty much all the big rap releases of 2015 experienced a considerable push. The most logical explanation would be that many of the most popular rap albums depend on streams to chart, and when Christmas rolled around, physical and iTunes copies were being sold a whole lot more, but it was pop releases like Adele's back catalog that saw the greatest boost. Now, that the surge is over, heavily streamed albums are now back in their rightful positions.
Possible Details Emerge About Future's Anti-Ciara Twitter Rant
Rumors are making their way around the web today after Future’s short rant on Twitter yesterday about Ciara’s potentially controlling nature. Unfortunately the rumors don’t seem to be about any new music, despite Future Hendrix hinting as much in his tweets.

Future Blasts Ciara: "This Bitch Got Control Problems"
Since Future's acrimonious split with Ciara, their child, 19-month-old Future Zahir Wilburn, has spent the majority of his time with Ciara (and, to Nayvadius' immense chagrin, Russell Wilson). Future has had enough of this arrangement, and he blasted Ciara this afternoon in a brief but Twitter rant, accusing her of keeping him from seeing Baby Future.“This bitch got control problems,” he wrote. “I gotta go through lawyers to see babyfuture…the fuckery for 15k a month. I jus want babyfuture that's all."
Young Scooter Teases Joint Mixtape With Future

In response to a Twitter follower requesting a Scooter and Future mixtape in 2016, Scooter replied, "COMING SOON."
Kendrick Lamar Says Drake & Future Made Some Of His Favorite Rap Music Of 2015
Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly was probably the densest album of the year, through a combination of its grandiose musical arrangements, disparate influences, political themes, and very technical rapping. While this made the album a critical success, it also made it the go-to project for a certain type of rap fan to describe as "real hip-hop".
