Jhene Aiko and Cassie have both had big years. Cassie dropped the well-received Rockabyebaby mixtape back in April, and Jhene is fresh off of releasing her debut EP, which debuted at number 8 on the Billboard chart this week.
Rap is the most competitive genre in music. For decades, artists reveled in competition because they wanted to prove that they were elite.
It all seemed like fantastic, luxurious, one-percent-y fun and games during the initial TIDAL press conference.
The chemistry between Wayne and Drake is surreal. Even though Drake is considered Lil Wayne’s protégé, he has diligently worked his way up to his boss’ level and might have even superseded him.

Rich Gang is now synonymous with Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan. The young duo is the hottest commodity out of Atlanta, and they haven't even released an album. Their music is different than anyone else's, but then again, everything about them is different.

New York has always had a strong lineage of lyrical rappers. The Notorious B.I.G., Nas, Rakim, and Jay Z cultivated New York Rap with their lyrical candor and unblemished wordplay.
It’s always a joyous occasion when Chris Brown and Tyga link up. The two party boys aren't here to strain your mind necessarily, rather, they're here to ensure you have a good time with easy-listening, pop-leaning music.
It’s always a beautiful thing when Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka get on a record together. Let’s be clear, these two men aren’t the most lyrical cats in the game, but they bring that bravado and street lingo that we all love and appreciate.
