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.

I Got You, Fam: 10 Rapper-Athlete Bromances Apr 13, 2016 at 07:42pm
The elite class of athletes and musicians share much in common -- wealth, fame, a central role in popular culture. So it should not come as a surprise that there is, generally speaking, a great mutual respect between rappers and athletes. Sometimes this respect engenders friendship. Sometimes it engenders rappers and athletes throwing each other alley-oops... on and off the court.

The 10 Best R&B/Rap Covers Of Classic Songs
The 10 Best R&B/Rap Covers Of Classic Songs Mar 18, 2016 at 04:22pm
Searching "rap covers" online is like walking into a minefield of acoustic guitars and webcams, leftovers from a war that began with Ben Folds' famous version of Dr. Dre's "Bitches Ain't Shit." An earnest-sounding white dude with a guitar and an angelic backing choir singing things like "Lick on these nuts and suck the dick" was (believe it or not) novel at some point, but now that approach has been beaten to death. Last year, for example, a ten year old covered "Trap Queen."

The Murs-9th Wonder connection has proven to be one of the sturdier creative partnerships in hip hop, dating back to their classic 2004 album Murs 3:16: The 9th Edition, which still slaps. The partnership has now even endured a 2012 collab called The Final Adventure -- before the ball dropped on New Years Eve, they shared their sixth full collaboration, a new project called Brighter Daze.

After the relatively dry 2014, we thought it was a drought, but the overwhelming amount of material made making our year-end list both very easy and very difficult. On one hand, there was a wealth of album to choose from, but on the other hand, a lot of great stuff had to be left on the cutting room floor.

Last week belonged to Drake and Future, and while their numbers didn't live up to the inflated projections, they still managed to keep Lana Del Rey, Mac Miller, and the persistent Beauty Behind The Madness out of the top spot. Miller's major label debut came in at number 3, a little lower than his previous independent offering, but we're sure the new money behind him will keep the gears moving throughout the year.
