I'm not going to take the time to crunch all of the numbers for the 28 weeks of 2016 we've experienced thus far, but in terms of artists who show up most often in our weekly top ten tracks list, it's not even close. Drake is the clear victor, seeming to find a way on here every week. Second place is a little more murky.

Even on the very rare occasion that Drake doesn't show up in our top ten tracks of the week, his presence is still felt. In this case, he's directly responsible for three separate tracks in the top ten, whether that entails remixes or disses aimed at him.

Sounwave is one quarter of Top Dawg Entertainment’s in-house production unit the Digi-Phonics. Although deeply respected in the hip hop production community, he rarely strays outside the confines of TDE's roster of artists, and even within TDE he collaborates with Kendrick Lamar more than anyone else (although he did produce three tracks on ScHoolboy Q's new album Blank Face LP). Along with Terrace Martin, he was one of the chief architects of To Pimp a Butterfly's sonic universe.

Tracks featuring Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, & Ab-Soul, the four members of Black Hippy, are always fire and increasingly rare. Which is why fans were so stoked to get a Black Hippy cut on Jay Rock's 90059 in the form of "Vice City" and so disappointed to see the absence of a Black Hippy cut on ScHoolboy's Blank Face LP tracklist.

Ab-Soul: "This Bench Is Getting Warm As Fuck" Feb 8, 2016 at 06:16pm
Top Dawg Entertainment’s stable of emcees is one of the best in the game. However, it can be tough to keep everyone happy with so many mouths to feed, so to speak. Ab-Soul is the only artist of the bunch who hasn’t released a critically-acclaimed and widely promoted album. His last project, These Days… came out after ScHoolboy Q’s widely popular Oxymoron but it didn’t receive nearly same amount of promotion. The same goes for Jay Rock’s 90059 and any of Kendrick Lamar’s albums.

Rock has performed at a handful of Kendrick's "Groove Sessions," and he's set to appear at the tour's final show on November 10 in Oakland, but the quality of his recent album, 90059, warrants a tour of his own.
