If it weren't for the weird for-pay nature of Drake's new "mixtape" then all five of these tracks would come from the 6 God.
That's not to say the rest of the week was terrible. Our Top 100 chart contained a number of notable tracks.
With their demented early music and sketch TV show, "Loiter Squad," Odd Future have always had comedy on their minds. Sometimes, as was the case with Tyler, The Creator's hilarious alter ego, Young Nigga, this humor extends to music.
Call this story Halley's Comet because shit this weird only comes around once every 76 years or so. As part of their year-end magazine, clothing company Citizens of Humanity invited none other than ex-boxer Mike Tyson to interview Earl Sweatshirt.
Seeming like he was poised to break out of the bonds of his local drill scene ever since dropping the great Welcome To Fazoland tape earlier this year, Lil Herb now appears on a very out-of-character track that also features Earl Sweatshirt.
How did this week go? Not great. By another miracle of the justice system, Darren Wilson got away with murdering Michael Brown; a grand jury decided to not indict him. To put this in perspective, you need to be beyond reasonable doubt to prove a defendant is guilty. An indictment only requires suspicion.
Flying Lotus has been making brain-melting beats for about a decade now. The LA-based producer lives in the underground, but as the electronic music world has exploded, his music has gained the acclaim of critics and casual music listeners everywhere.
Ferguson. The ALS Challenge. Rihanna apparently still banging Drake. "Anaconda" threatening the drown America in thirst. Etc., Etc. There wasn't much new material to come out of the hip-hop community, but the artists still had plenty to talk about and cause controversy over during the past couple of days.
