Without releasing an album, Drake has completely dominated the first two thirds or so of 2014, staying on the tip of everyone's tongues by delivering unexpected fireballs like "0 To 100/The Catch Up" and "Draft Day." But more so than anything else, the reason Drake's been able to stay relevant this year is his insane gift for picking features.

Back with the long awaited and highly anticipated Dream.ZONE.Achieve, DZA sets out to prove that he has a lot more to talk about than just marijuana.
Awful Records are a tough bunch to pin down. For starters, there are fifteen of them, and everyone seems to drop a new project every three or four months. Then there's the fact they seem to lack a unifying sound, all going off in their own directions, each one seemingly more leftfield than the next.

Now, ready to show us what he’s learned, he takes us back to school with Hystori: Black History Project. His most socially conscious body of work yet, CyHi gives us a history lesson throughout the project.
Earlier this year, hip-hop bible XXL Magazine featured rappers A$AP Rocky and French Montana on its cover declaring New York rap is back.
