As opposed to a winter and spring that found a lot of repeat appearances in our Top Tracks list, summer's been more of a free-for-all, with quick week-to-week turnover as everyone seeks to land a summer anthem. Sure enough, we've only got two returning tracks from last week's list, and following another big recent trend in this feature, both involve Drake. Drizzy's got fingerprints on three of these ten tracks, as does Future, a sure sign that the What A Time To Be Alive team are still comfortably the hottest in the game.

What a tumultuous last few days it's been. Reports of Prince's sudden passing rocked us on Thursday, but then hours later we got a new A$AP Ferg album. About 48 hours after that, Lemonade arrived, effectively shutting down everything else on the internet at the time.

Kid Cudi Interviews Pee-wee Herman For Talkhouse Podcast Apr 21, 2016 at 05:13pm
Rapper, singer, and actor Kid Cudi is a noted film and TV buff, though it's rather surprising too discover he's a devoted fan of Pee-wee Herman, the television, theater, and film character played by Paul Reubens. Herman was immensely popular in the '80s and still retains a widespread following today. For its latest episode, The Talkhouse Film podcast organized a conversation between Reubens and Cudi, which coincides with the recent Netflix premiere of "Pee-wee's Big Holiday," the first Pee-wee Herman film in almost 28 years.

Is it just me, or have the past few weeks felt like the calm before the storm? After all of the TLOP hubbub died down (this is the first week in a long time that we haven't had a Kanye solo joint in our top ten list), we've had quite a lack of releases from rap's upper echelon. Teasers, singles, and release date announcements seem to keep flooding in, but this Friday, when A$AP Ferg releases Always Strive And Prosper, things will really get cooking.

Drugs and rap have been pretty synonymous since the 90s, but recently there's been an influx of rappers talkin' about harder drugs than the chronic. Chance the Rapper's Acid Rap tape was perhaps the most illicit example of an ongoing trend that's taking place amongst the newer artists.

20 Hip Hop Artists Who Threw Out The Ceremonial First Pitch Apr 5, 2016 at 09:21am
The pitcher's mound is a stage, a very different stage from the one rappers and singers are accustomed to standing upon. The ceremonial first pitch is ostensibly a celebration, and throwing the ball 60 feet in a particular direction may not seem like much of a challenge. But much can go wrong. From Kendrick Lamar to Snoop Dogg to MC Hammer to 50 Cent (!), here are 20 hip hop artists who took the mound for the ceremonial first pitch.
