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."

It's been a bizarre saga as to where Young Thug's affiliations lie. First, he claimed to be a free agent no longer with Atlantic.

Later, Atlanic phoned Billboard saying Young Thug was still with them and Gucci Mane's subsidiary, Brick Squad.
Yesterday it was pointed out that struggle rapper and son of Tom Hanks Chet Haze had been using the N-word in some of his social media posts. While there was no way to explain away his casual use of the word, his reasoning for doing so has only made things worse.
2014 was a relatively quiet year for music. It almost felt like the first half of the year was dedicated to the remnants of 2013 (so we had Young Thug continue to blow up, all the Drake leftovers) and the second half was a build up to next year (we received no Lil Wayne or Kendrick Lamar album, etc). Nonetheless, the year is ending on a high note, with albums from J.
You might be thinking "Here we go, yet another dissection into the enigma that is Young Thug." But that's just the thing with Thugger.
