Top Tracks: February 1 - February 7
Constant new music from the game's biggest stars has become the norm. And while it's almost too much to digest, we're not complaining. This week's Top Tracks is dominated by Future, Drake, and Rihanna, and it's likely those names aren't going anywhere -- Future, especially, who's already dropped two projects this year, adding to the four he put out in 2015. And don't let me forget about Meek. Drizzy stans aren't gonna let him live any time soon, though most everything he's dropped this year has cracked the Top 10. He's finally using all the controversy to his advantage.

Behind The Beat: C-Sick
C-Sick has been one of Chicago's hardest working producers for quite a few years now, and within the last little while, his name has begun to catch up with his impressive body of work. Recently working with artists like Meek Mill, Lil Durk, and Chance The Rapper, as well as keeping up relationships with longtime collaborators King Louie and Logic, the producer is more recognized than he's ever been, but his work ethic has remained the same throughout.
