    The Best Prison-Released Gucci Mane Tracks Of 2015

    Gucci Mane has released nine projects this year. We don't have to check-- that's more than any other rapper. He also happens to be in prison. Last year, he released 14 projects from the pen, making a cool $1.3 million, and he's on pace to topple those numbers this year.  He's feeding his fans, he's feeding the streets-- though who knows if he's actually the mastermind behind any of this. No matter when these tracks were actually recorded, they're still among the hottest out.

    Since some old Makonnen tweets came out of the woodwork a couple months back, it hasn't been clear whether or not the Atlanta newcomer and Drake are on good terms. Some speculated that Drizzy was distancing himself from Makonnen following some lines on IYRTITL that seemed to be directed toward a disloyal co-sign.

    10 Hottest Singing-Rappers Right Now

    Nowadays the lines are becoming blurred as to who is a rapper and who is a singer. Not only are genres being bent in different directions, so that it's not uncommon to find an EDM influence (or folk, if it's Yelawolf) in a rap song and vice versa, but vocals are being bent in every which way as well. Rappers are experimenting with flows and voices, like Kendrick Lamar, and they're also pushing the boundaries when it comes to being a singer.

    With yesterday's remix of Fetty Wap's "My Way," we're getting that feeling that this summer's gonna be Drizzy season yet again. Drizzy had the most successful 2014 of anyone who didn't put out an album, and he did it by dropping impromptu remixes on the ever-fashionable OVO soundcloud. First, the TOPSZN boys bumped up Tinashe's "2 On" to level 6, and, then, weekdays were forever changed as he flexed his vocals to the max on iLoveMakonnen's "Tuesday."

    Atlanta, Atlanta, Atlanta. As far as new music goes, in the rap scene, no one is doing it quite like Atlanta. Migos, iLoveMakonnen, Rich Homie Quan, and Young Thug are a few of the bigger names to pop up out of the scene recently, but Father is right up there in that conversation as well.

    With technology at the forefront of our lives, any and everything that has happened in the world of hip hop over the course of 2014 spread through the webosphere in no time. By the end of 2013 thousands were quoting "you ain't got the answers Sway" from Kanye's infamous sit down interview on SiriusXM's Sway in the Morning, leaving a tough viral moment to outdo. But from rappers landing label deals overnight to A-list celebrities spazzing out on live TV, the possibilities were endless and completely random in 2014.

    Were it not for Drake's "Tuesday" remix, the majority of rap listeners still probably wouldn't know who iLoveMakonnen is. There's no doubt that the OVO co-sign has immeasurably aided the singer/rapper's career, but now it seems like Makonnen wasn't always the biggest fan of his current label boss. Someone's just dug up some tweets of his, the oldest of which dates back to 2010, that take some shots at Drizzy. View them in the gallery above.

    Drake still may still be looking for a Hot 100 number one as a lead artist, but his sheer number of entries to the chart is nothing to scoff at. In fact, this week it saw him passing one of the biggest and most respected musical acts of all time. That's right, Drizzy now has more Hot 100 singles than The Beatles.
