3. Drake- 107,730 Searches
Drake released two enormous songs in the past few months. "Started From The Bottom", and "5AM in Toronto" are likely to have placed him highly on their existence alone. However, Drizzy also showed up in the "Poetic Justice" video, Wayne's "Love Me", and Snoop Lion's "No Guns Allowed", and with a new album dropping later this year, this may only be the beginning of Drake's presence in 2013.
2. Chief Keef- 107,780 Searches
Chief Keef had a huge presence on the site, despite being locked up for the majority of the period these stats came from. Mainly centered around the events that landed him with a 2 month bid in juvenile detention, Keef ruled the HNHH headlines for quite a while. Between being sued for missed concert appearances, faced a petition for child support from a girl in middle school, and his alleged breakdown in the courtroom. On top of all that, "Love Sosa" also placed within the top 100 searches, so it seems HNHH users were listening to Keef as much as they were reading about his legal troubles.
