    Mixtapes are like opinions. Everyone has one, but not all of them matter. Your mixtape should be a totally uninhibited creative space. A platform where you can impulsively exhibit your talent for a more focused and passionate audience. The mixtape is a very reliable vehicle for hip-hop, especially in the digital era where free information spreads feverishly. In some cases, artists give away music that is significantly more awesome than their commercial releases. It just depends.

    After what may or may not have been a listener-constructed beef between Drake and The Weeknd, the two seem to be on good terms.

    The past two weeks were dominated by Drake, who in turn dominated the charts with Nothing Was The Same. Now Justin Timberlake has taken over, with the release of  The 20/20 Experience 2, his second album in the span of a year, and his second album to debut at #1 in that same time.

    This past week the Drake frenzy surrounding Nothing Was The Same came to a peak when the actual first week sales were released. The rapper's album had the best opening week of this year second to Justin Timberlake's come back effort-- he even topped Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail first week sales. Nonetheless, his reach hasn't quite made the 1 million mark yet, although, if he continues on this path, it could very well happen on his next effort.

    This week has been Drizzy Drake everything, with the official release of Nothing Was The Same and a bunch of promo for it. Drake has not started taking over the charts yet, but that will change next week when we get the results of his first week sales. The projections were revealed this past week, and although many OVO fans were hopeful Drake would reach 1 million in the first week, it seems he doesn't quite have that much power yet.

    This past week The Weeknd dominated the charts, although he was outshone only by country star Keith Urban. The race between the country star and r'n'b star was a close one, with 3,000 units making the difference for the #1 spot on the Billboard 200. The race was so close, in fact, that Drizzy and The Weeknd prematurely celebrated, when Drake congratulated his friend at his recent L.A. show.

    We know that The Weeknd is not considered hip hop, but you can't escape Kiss Land as a great production piece. The Weeknd is known to be one of the new faces of R&B and Drake's go-to guy for an R&B feature. With no surprise, you'll also find Drizzy Drake featured on this project on "Live For." Out of the 10 tracks on Kiss Land, not counting the bonus tracks, we found 5 were sampled by other artists.
