The past year was another intriguing one for hip-hop with several albums vying for best of the year along with a few that were expected to be great but fell short. The year also brought us a whole host of collaborative efforts from crews, to quartets, to surprising duos that took listeners by surprise.
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music.

What a week it has been in hip-hop. It's a week that got kicked off with tragedy. It's going to take some time for the wound that A$AP Yams left us to heal.But the game still continues just like he would've wanted. The back half of January saw strong releases from Lupe Fiasco and Joey Bada$$. Lil Wayne's Sorry 4 The Wait 2 has gotten a mixed response, but at least one rapper approves.

This week r'n'b singer and hit-maker extraordinaire, The-Dream, enters the charts with his latest effort, IV Play.
