Battle rap is quickly growing as a culture. What was almost completely relegated to street corners and Youtube a few years ago has garnered national recognition, more tv programming, Pay-Per-View events, and other attention of the mainstream media. Hip Hop icons like Eminem and Snoop Dogg have put on events for the battle scene and at this rate things can only continue to expand.

"My Way" may have been the Fetty Wap song Drake chose to bless with a guest verse earlier this year, but it might have more accurate if he had chosen "Again."

The number of questionable life decisions Chris Brown has made now hovers somewhere in the hundreds, and while many of them are too horrible to find humor in, he's also given people plenty of reason to laugh at his expense. His latest "WTF" move is one of the latter.
The Weeknd rose up as a largely anonymous kid from Toronto who released three epic mixtapes in 2011.
