Easily the biggest story of this past week was the announcement of J. Cole's new album, 4 Your Eyez Only, the release of a "making of" documentary, and the ensuing drama. The doc contained videos for two new tracks, "False Prophets" and "Everybody Dies," which have been construed to contain disses of Kanye West and Lil Yachty, respectively. A J.
The Hip Hop Dating Map
The Hip Hop Dating Map Dec 5, 2016 at 11:21am
The law of six degrees of separation applies to the hip hop dating circuit -- a land where fast money, fast women, and horny men collide, resulting often in fireworks. As you can see in the dating map we have assembled below, there isn't much distance separating stars like Rihanna, Drake, Kanye West, Future, Lil Wayne, & A$AP Rocky. Ray J even has his own dating wheel, which gives credence to Vince Staples' mind-blowing Theory of Ray J.

Nicki Minaj & Meek Mill Offer Confusing Response To 21 Savage's "Back To Back"-Quoting Tyga Diss Dec 3, 2016 at 03:48pm
In the age of social media, all it takes to get involved in a beef is a decent internet connection and some daring fingers, and as a result, things can get complicated very quickly. Over the last 24 hours, 21 Savage and Tyga have been exchanging jabs on social media, and with multiple platforms in use, it's already become tough to follow, but Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill just made things even more confusing.

21 Savage has been pretty vocal about Kylie Jenner over the last little while, but he hasn't been the only rapper shouting out Jenner on or off record. We've collected some memorable quotes and social media posts from a variety of artists that all have one thing in common -- Kylie.

Since debuting last year, Drake's OVO Sound Radio installation on Apple's Beats 1 has proven a huge force in debuting music by already-established stars as well as breaking new talent like Kodak Black, dvsn, and WizKid. Obviously, it's an engine that's benefitted its creator the most, creating huge events out of the debuts of What A Time To Be Alive, "Summer Sixteen," and VIEWS, but the 6 God has spread the love too.

By the time the next edition of Top Tracks drops, it'll almost be December, which means that in terms of music releases, we're entering the year's equivalent of garbage time. We've still got projects from The Weeknd, Childish Gambino, Gucci Mane, and Drake on the way in 2016, but beyond that, don't expect too many surprises in term of full-length projects. What you can bank on, though, are some new singles dropping in order to carry hype into the new year. Let's start shaping up that early 2017 release calendar.

The state of high-profile stars' song creation processes is such that we often don't know how credited songwriters and/or guests factor into the equation until long after the song is released. Time and time again this year, we've seen "original versions" by people other than the lead artists surface, basically proving that they're the main crative forces behind the song in question.

When Drake and Future linked up just over a year ago for What A Time To Be Alive, it was an almost earth-shattering event in hip hop, regardless of the album's quality. One was (and still is) undeniably the most popular rapper on the planet, and the other was (and probably isn't at the moment) the hottest, the guy who was just capping one of the craziest 12-month runs we've seen in this decade.

For the past few years it's been clear that regardless of quality, everything Drake announces or releases is guaranteed to produce more pageviews on HNHH than any of his contemporaries. We've known this for a while and capitalized upon it a few times, which many of you have noticed and decried, but hey, you're still clicking on it. Drizzy dropped four tracks on OVO Sound Radio last weekend and nothing has changed, despite the fact that they did arrive too late for last week's Top Tracks list.
Vote For Your Favorite Feature On Meek Mill’s “DC4”
Vote For Your Favorite Feature On Meek Mill’s “DC4” Oct 28, 2016 at 05:27pm
It's been a rocky 16+ months for Meek Mill, between a beef with Drake that partially erased Dreams Worth Than Money from public memory and legal issues that threatened to put him back in jail. The arrival of the long-anticipated DC4 carries the potential to knock aside the sideshows and return focus to Meek's music. DC4 includes a diverse array of features, and we want to know which one was your favorite:

Well clearly the big news today is the announcement of Drake's new project More Life, and the ensuing tracks that the 6 God dropped on OVO Sound last night. Dude can still easily dominate the conversation whenever he wants to.
5 Things We Want From Nicki Minaj's Next Album
5 Things We Want From Nicki Minaj's Next Album Oct 18, 2016 at 06:38pm
It's been almost two years since Nicki Minaj dropped a new album. Yes, that seems hard to believe, but it's true: The Pinkprint, her third studio release, came out on December 12, 2014. It's easy to understand the long wait since Nicki has been busy with a variety of other projects – including touring, recording guest verses, and taking on a few acting roles – but it doesn't change the fact that TWO YEARS is pretty long time to go without some fresh bars from The Pink One. 
Nicki Minaj Clears Up Confusion Over Her Comments About Kanye West
Nicki Minaj Clears Up Confusion Over Her Comments About Kanye West Oct 17, 2016 at 06:09pm
In her recent Marie Claire profile, Nicki Minaj shared a criticism of the industry, which some confused as a criticism of Kanye West.“I’m so tired of black women feeling that when our men get rich, they’re going to leave them for a woman of a different race," she told the magazine, going on to reference Kanye's #1 single, "Gold Digger." "It wasn’t funny when Kanye said, ‘When he get on, he’ll leave your ass for a white girl’—and Kanye happens to be with a white girl now," she shared.

Last week gave us Gucci Mane's second album of the year, Woptober, The Game's 1992, and Anderson .Paak and Knxwledge (aka NxWorries)' Yes Lawd!, and we've still got projects from D.R.A.M., Joe Budden, Common, and Jeezy dropping soon, but it feels like it's been a while since any major releases have arrived.

10 Rappers' Myspace Pages Before The Fame Oct 14, 2016 at 05:40pm
If you were in your teens between the years 2003 and 2009, having a Myspace was a must. The predecessor to Facebook was a major step up from instant messaging platforms like AIM, the only form of social network any of us really had until the mid-2000s, and it also had a big impact on the music industry. For the first time, undiscovered artists had a means of sharing their music with millions of people across the globe (YouTube would come into the picture two years later), and the personal touch of a Myspace page gave eventual fans something more to latch onto.

Barring The Weeknd's Starboy and any late-year surprises, we don't seem to have a whole lot coming on the release calendar as fall settles in. Gucci Mane's Woptober, Anderson .Paak and Knxledge's Yes Lawd! under their Nxworries title, and D.R.A.M.'s debut album Big Baby D.R.A.M. are all coming later this month, but compared to the summer we just had, that's small potatoes.
