Every rapper that can be considered in the G.O.A.T. debate eventually hits a wall.
This drop-off point comes for everyone and leads their stans to add qualifiers to their respective "best all time" arguments, "Of course, I'm talking about Jay-Z from Reasonable Doubt to Black Album, Eminem pre-Encore, etc."
Remember back in late November when Toronto Raptors’ guard Demar DeRozan spilled the bean on a possible Drake mixtape that was supposedly dropping in early 2015? Well, it looks like that bish is really happening as Drake’s good buddy and OVO affiliate, P. Reign, confirmed the news with Karen Civil recently.
Lil Wayne just dropped off his Sorry 4 The Wait 2 mixtape moments ago, and as expected, it finds Tune going over some of last year’s hottest instrumentals, including “Coco”, “No Type”, “Try Me”, and even Shmurda’s “Hot N*gga”.
Last year, Drake made his film debut when he had a cameo in "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" alongside Kanye West and many more, and now it looks like he might be popping up in another big-ticket sequel.
GLOVO; it certainly has a nice ring to it, but is it the makings of a new bond between Drake and Chief Keef? Sosa just yesterday posted a photo to Instagram with a logo for the mysterious acronym, captioning the pic with "Thou Not Ready".
Disappointingly, the vast majority of hip-hop "remixes" these days consist of rappers dropping bars over already-existing instrumentals. No matter how many people hopped on Bobby Shmurda's "Hot Nigga," no MCs or producers even tweaked Jahlil's beat a bit.
Leave it to KanyeToThe to unearth yet another nugget of information about one of the planets biggest rappers. For their latest trick, some of the forum's members unearthed evidence of a Drake video shoot in Toronto that took place last weekend, and now we're left to speculate where the footage will end up.
We've already seen Eminem dip into the battle rap world recently, and now it appears Drake will be following suit. The successful Toronto rap battle organization, King Of The Dot has joined forces with Drake and OVO for the most recent event in their "Blackout" series.
A day after we received the Coachella line-up, which includes Drake as a headliner, New York's Governors Ball music festival follows suit. The festival has also tapped Canadian Drizzy Drake to headline this year.
Now that we've officially ushered in 2015, we can expect Coachella to go down sooner rather than later. The yearly music fest has announced their typically massive three-day line-up today, with tickets going on sale in a day's time.
2014 is over and done with, and we the hip-hop community are moving onto greater endeavors. After an overall mediocre year for rap albums, 2015 is destined to be different. Hip-hop's biggest names are all scheduled to release albums this year, and the timing could not be more right.
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.
Rich Homie Quan's biggest gig yet may be his work with Young Thug on the latest Rich Gang mixtape, but he's got big plans for his first solo album due out in 2015. Closely working with Birdman and the rest of the Cash Money team, Quan has already done songs with some of the label's biggest names.
