What would hip hop even look like if we lived in a world where Prince never existed? It'd be much less colorful and funky, I"m sure, and some of its most vibrant artists would never have had the courage to step out of the box were it not for one of the weirdest artists of all time. André 3000, Kanye West, Pharrell, The-Dream, and Young Thug (so basically, all of The Life Of Pablo's squad) in particular have Prince to thank for some, if not most, of their musical and/or fashion styles, and the rest of the rap game isn't far off either.

Celebrity appearances are a staple of nightclubs these days, elevating the price of entry for clubs and making money for the celebrities that appear. It wasn’t always that way though. Back in the day, record execs like Puff Daddy would have to pay off club owners or DJs to spin an artist’s new tracks. In today’s celebrity-driven culture, the script has been flipped.

As usual, there was a lot going on in the world of rap this week, and it was evident on Instagram. First off, Kim Kardashian started a whole dialogue on slut-shaming and empowerment by posting a censored nude selfie taken in her bathroom mirror. It caused a few women to speak out against Kim's choice, but more importantly it found many fellow celebrities supporting her, including Amber Rose, who suggested Kim speak out about slut-shaming at her SlutWalk event next year.

Lots of exciting stuff going down on Instagram this week. First off, we got an update on ALL of the upcoming TDE releases, and surprisingly, it was Kendrick's album that came through first (though it seems Q, Isaiah, Sza, and Soulo aren't far behind). We also got a brief update on Drake's Views From The 6 through a photo of Drizzy's creative partner, 40, stocking up with supplies to camp out in the studio (and to keep it Canadian, a Tim Horton's cup in hand).

Top Tracks: February 1 - February 7 Feb 8, 2016 at 02:57pm
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.
