2019: A Year in Hip Hop
20:19 was a monumental

year

for hip-hop kanye west jesus's king sold so well that he became the first rap gospel artist to literally go silver following his sudden arrest 6:9 pled guilty to several racketeering charges and announced that he'd be cooperating with the feds appearing in court looking like The Godfather of some kind of sharpie racket Y&W Nelly went from smoking bud with his best buds to smoking his best buds after catching the motor out for the death of two of his

year

mug lil nas ex rode his horse all the way to the top of the charts breaking World Records for the longest run ever on the Billboard charts being the first ever entry on the Rolling Stones newly launched top 100 chart and having the biggest impact on the patented trap law Rost cringe-worthy rapper's chart I personally gave it o out 10 and following
the damning allegations in the surviving our Kelly documentary for the first time ever the hip hop community was finally ready to acknowledge our Kelly's crimes and admit that for the last 30

year

s he truly been putting the T&P dough but if

2019

was about anything it was about comebacks and what better place to start than a man that claimed to have the biggest comeback off the model you know I had the biggest comeback of 2018 period I started the wave I'm the reason why these new
artists gonna sign I'm the reason why it's a little pump I discovered cheeky I've been doing it you through I was the first artist with Joyner they laughed at me they said I killed hip hop and now they're doing exactly what I did and shine me and shine I'm being shunned upon yes soldier boy kicked off

2019

with an explosive Breakfast Club interview where he claimed to have had the biggest comeback of 2018 that is of course if you don't count the comeback that 6:9 got from
his new cellmate in the process of claiming the crown of 2018 Soulja Boy made some pretty bold claims including that he invented the internet I started is internet but the truly juicy viral moment came when he dragged his fellow comeback contenders Tiger and Drake spawning one of the most iconic catchphrases of

2019

Tiger had a record Tiger tire okay tiger gray- got body by pusha t the negative hiding scared from the world but is where I wouldn't have from the kid big Draco Trudy came with a
fire on that Breakfast Club interview and over the course of that hour turned his giant L of a career in Twain massive w reminding everybody just why we fell in love with him back in 2008 and he was looking fresh rockin his Gucci headband an old age everything swag looking like a typical British meal he also took the opportunity to defend himself against claims of being a soldier fraud after his bizarre soldier game Lord I got my new video game you know saying they say that's it
counterfeiters tuna I thought it would only sell like five hundred copies two hundred copies not a lot we got like a thousand ten twenty thousand orders and it got backed up you know what I'm saying I didn't I didn't I didn't expect it to go to the sell that much you know it's an act so we got backed up but if your product is on the way as we all know he was beaten out in the gangster gang wars by six nines Nintendo snatch my favorite hip hop moment of

2019

it's simple
Soulja Boy more specifically everything that he was doing at the start of the

year

it might not have been the most groundbreaking or most revolutionary moment for hip-hop but what it was was super entertaining that time when Soulja Boy was rocking the Gucci headband that was a great time for hip hop tiger drake ariana grande no one was safe from being called out by beg soldier whether it was because he felt like they were stealing his flow or because they supposedly doesn't have as good a
comeback in the previous

year

as home it was just fun and resulted in so many great moments not least of all his iconic Breakfast Club interview unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you feel about this whole situation soldier has been laying low for the second half of the

year

pretty much the rest of

2019

but I will always remember that time when he was just snapping on everyone for the most simple reasons Soulja Boy's Breakfast Club interview was a viral moment not just for being
hilarious but it's incredible virality would prove that it only takes a magic moment like this to spark a genuine career comeback and from here this actually led to a true soldier resurgence fueled even further by him releasing some of the genuinely best music that he's released in nearly a decade including hit my line cut that cheque a new drink and before you know it he was traveling all over the country playing packed shows in San Diego he pulled up in his hometown of LA presumably
checking in with his Banton Bloods before branding that soldier boy at the LA Clippers halftime show he even took his comeback tour to Las Vegas which he documented on his YouTube channel in a video where you can see a gigantic ass next door woman twerking and with all this new money coming in salty boy was truly splurging copying a rare new McLaren which has the hidden third seat and Blunt control dude I fired the brains in a row earlier my read his love of you I'm spending such a crazy
amount of money in Fendi that he got too excited and for a moment forgot he was scared of paper today we spend 6000 in a piece that excuse me but unfortunately big Draco's run on top would tragically be cut short in April when he got sentenced to 240 days in jail for violating his probation after getting caught with ammunition being a violation of a weapons case dating all the way back to 2014 in addition to that he'd also been caught out falsifying evidence that he had completed
court-ordered community service so you were slipped in you young Drake oh hey no wonder he scared of paper but also in less lighthearted news January also saw the airing of the harrowing documentary surviving our Kelly a sensational six-part drama documenting our Kelly's love for the underage poontang it documented some of his own experiences receiving abuse as a child his monumental rise to fame and then how he eventually exploited that Fame to prey on impressionable young and underage
women who he would tempt to dominate physically mentally and emotionally it featured moving testimony from victims people close to the victims and people in our Kelly's life who had enabled him at the time but later had a change of heart and wanted to tell their truth the emotional and hard-hitting documentary added fuel to the mute our Kelly campaign leading his record label to eventually drop him in response to the show our Kelly initially attempted to move into damage control downplaying
the allegations and continuing to appear in public he popped up at his own 52nd birthday party in Chicago's v75 nightclub which I assume is the only nightclub in Chicago that has to hand out Poncho's at the door I don't wanna hurt nobody yes you do but there is something go on then this should be good some critics of the documentary suggested that perhaps it may be gone a little bit far in sensationalizing some of these accounts for entertainment and ultimately money but it is a TV
show after all and some of these critics did have a point I mean no matter how slick Li edited your mob justice is the legal system should always take precedence and whilst for a moment delusional r.kelly supporters did have that to cling on it didn't take long for reality set in and he was eventually arrested and charged with ten counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse this was in February after a new child sex tape had emerged somehow he managed to get his broke ass on a million dollars
bond and pled not guilty to all charges and then after a couple of months of freedom and very erratic behavior including an explosive CBS this morning interview reaching breaking point when r.kelly realized that in addition to sleeping with underage girls it was also illegal to hook up with your own children and from there things went bad to worse in May catching 11 more criminal charges and in July getting indicted on 18 charges he was catching more charges than you can count which is insult to
injury considering the fact that our Kelly can't count hey maybe in jail him and Kodak brat can get their different chip on together the charges included child sexual exploitation child pornography production kidnapping racketeering obstruction of justice and even forced labor damn you mean to tell me that child labor went into my officially-licensed $3.99 our Kelly Fiesta camara it's all man next you're gonna tell me that Chocolate Factory from his album was the one that collapsed
in Bangladesh you've gone too far this time Kelly at this point he was duly denied bail pled not guilty and has been sitting around for the majority of

2019

awaiting his trial it's hard to have a sympathy for a guy that allegedly kept women locked up against their will complaining about having to be in jail he should enjoy it because being in jail isn't really that different from being trapped in that closet he also came out to complain that he can't read his fan mail because of
his illiteracy oh it's cute he still thinks that that's fan mail and of course the final nail in the coffin for any shred of sympathy for our Kelly came in the form of him complaining that he wasn't allowed to have both of his girlfriends visit for a conjugal three-way he gave me two girlfriends I would go to jail right now hell I'd go to jail for one girlfriend considering how disastrous my love life has been in

2019

I would probably do take Ain was just for a hand Shandy and
a kiss on the forehead man I need to work on my negotiating skills in 2020 just today the famed fashion house Gucci is apologizing for selling this sweater that appears to mimic blackface Twitter exploded what the hell were they thinking went one post Gucci announced today that the sweater is being yanked from the marketplace Gucci deeply apologizes for the offense caused in February we went from Gucci headbands to Gucci gettin banned after they revealed a black turtleneck that featured a half
balaclava with a red lit outline that looks suspiciously like blackface look even if you don't think this thing is racist it's still offensive just as a shitty piece of fashion it's like somebody at Gucci was sitting around saying you know what this

year

's look needs to be Steve Jobs with a herpes outbreak now at this point t I and other celebrities called for a boycott of Gucci the only reason Gucci had it because we made this the we start wearing this the day that tape Hugh
charlemagne even gave them the donkey of the day yes don't you today for Monday February 11th cause the Gucci Prada märklin whatever the fashion brand decided that blackface would be the fashion trend for this season yeah yeah that's why I don't wear Gucci too because they're racist it's got nothing to do with me being absolutely broke yes in fact even though I'm definitely super rich off of youtube the only reason that I wear tattered ranks from goodwill is because
apparently they're mad and not racist in responds big Draco himself soldier boy even retired his Gucci headband and said that he was so upset with Gucci that he was getting the goddamn Gucci tattoo that he's got on his forehead removed hey I got a Gucci tattoo in the middle of my phone hey are you gonna get that removed I've started the process I got to go back two more times but other people decided not to participate in the boycott young clown I sorry I mean young thug decided to
wear the damn thing and Kodak Blanc decided to ride with Gucci sowing the seeds for a later beef with ti I got a few more Gucci killed it up but it I'm one way now it's not completely surprising that Floyd Mayweather also didn't get the memo about the Gucci boycott considering the fact that he would have been able to read it and not long after the boycott he was actually spotted going into Gucci dropping some bands and some hilariously misguided comments see the thing is this I live
for myself I live with myself I do what I want to do when I want to I want to I'm not a follower you know when everybody else they says on it everybody gonna boycott I say guess what what is boy don't get on a yacht about to be fair to Floyd he only moved in the Gucci store because he thought it was the TV store now at 5:37 two men are in jail this morning including an up-and-coming Florida rapper both men are charged in a double murder police are saying the two staged a crime scene to
make it look like a drive-by shooting now 2018 saw the meteoric rise of unstable gun toting madman Y&W Melly after an impressive run of releasing hit song after hit song including blue Balenciaga Melly the Menace slang that iron and of course my personal favorite for real I'm so far real sorry I've been doing that we're off the back of these hits he's landed some of the best opportunities the rap game has to offer and thankfully his connections with music video director drew
film bit ensure that all of his videos were indeed filmed correctly if two didn't film it then it may sound right eventually Landon the holy grail of mental health problem collaborations the tracks split personalities with Kanye West that debuted with a cold Bennet directed video releasing on lyrical lemonade wait a minute true didn't film this it can't possibly have been filmed right now during Mellie's incredibly fast come up he was rarely pictured without his other Y&W
cronies when W bought them wine W juvie and wine W sacked racer sake Mellie why can't you have just taken wine w bought linen G V and spared us a chaser just off the back of having one of the most hilarious and inspired hip hop names since ASAP ball waxer now the Y&W boys have been best friends since childhood and all appeared extensively in Y&W Meles Meles documentary small thank yous well from its a deal MacGuffin to be successful is just a job a house and pilot bureau so i lost
somewhere I got a house they loved it it was like they happy to see is they happy to see us when they see there's nothing wrong I mean ironic we had but unfortunately shortly before that documentary was released tragedy struck Y&W juvie and Y&W sack jasa were killed in a drive-by shooting well at least that's what the end of the documentary said but by February investigators were taken a closer look at the circumstances surrounding those deaths leading Y&W Mele to turn
himself in authorities brought murder charges against ynw Mele and wine w Beurling suggesting that the ballistics evidence said that their story about being targeted in a drive-by didn't hold up now they told the cops that they'd left the recording studio and whilst they were driving another vehicle pulled up next to them and opened fire but later after taking officers back to the block where they supposedly happened they couldn't find any evidence or reports of a shooting having
taken place they shut down the block between 168 and 172 not a single report of gunshots was reported and no evidence of a shooting was found and to make matters worse the alibi that Mele had left the recording studio in a different car to the other three boys didn't hold up because security footage from the studio showed Mele getting in the Jeep with the three other guys that same Jeep that turned up to the hospital later with two dead bodies sands Mele GPS data not only corroborated this
but also suggested that Mellie was in that car up until around three minutes before it turned up to the hospital and that vehicle had taken a completely different route to what their statement said a month later the cops used GPS records and a k-9 unit to find the spot where the shooting had actually taken place here glass from that same car that was brought into the hospital along with eight shell casings were found and those shell casings match another shell casing that was found in that car
and as if that wasn't enough to make the prosecutors have a raging hard-on apparently the autopsy on Y&W sack chaser proved that his wounds came from close up likely within the vehicle specifically the rear left see exactly where CCTV footage showed the Y&W male who was sitting when he left the studio this story was frankly sensational and it was no surprise then that Mellie's 20-17 hit murder on my mind where he vividly recounts the killing of a friend went completely viral now
at this stage the case is still unresolved and it's unclear whether or not Mele will beat these charges him and wine W bought them both pled not guilty many people have speculated that he's completely considering the amount of evidence against him and at this stage basically no story seems to have come out from the defense's side but hey maybe there's a good you know he might slip fell and let off his dicks now many wasn't the only rapper in trouble with the cops in February
grammy-nominated atlanta-based rapper called 21 savage has been arrested by US immigration officials who say he has been living illegally in the country yes British rap fans were truly rejoicing when American immigration authorities revealed that Atlanta knife robbed 21 savage was really sir 21 the duke of savage shire a bonafide brick now for some people this came as a surprise but many of us had seen the signs early on I was probably wear this jacket on my way to have tea and crumpets on a
beautiful Monday morning he was actually detained for nine whole days before eventually receiving legal help from jay-z being released and popping up on ABC news to tell his story some people get locked up and find God others find glasses I was just driving and I just seen guns and blue lights and then I was in the back of a car and I was gone they know you're under arrest oh man and they didn't say nothing they just said we got Savage they said we got Savage yeah whatever guys your boy
quake from diverse mentality and easily the craziest thing and the most interesting thing to happen in hip hop in

2019

was when we found out that 21 Savage is not originally from Atlanta when he got detained by ice at an award show which is like never happened ever I think an artist getting detained at an award show like that and then finding out he's from Britain East London specifically was just something that was so left-field that if you asked me in the beginning of

2019

what would be
2019 a year in hip hop
the craziest thing that would be the last thing I would guess this guy's the most gangster rapper the last 5

year

s so to find that out was insane and the memes were just super funny everything was funny online so it was just a crazy moment shall have to try blow Ross you're killing it man in

2019

he actually emerged that streaming now accounts for 75% of music industry revenues I assume the other 25% is accounted for by sales of little Uzi birds jarred fart gasps sorry I meant to say
release of eternal or take Luisi could spent a lot of 2018 and most of

2019

moaning about the terrible record deal that he'd supposedly signed with DJ drama and Don Cannon a record deal that was so monumentally bad in just a short space of a few

year

s he went from being a humble nobody on soundcloud to a grammy-nominated millionaire with a seven-figure fleet of luxury cars oh the humanity actually did an entire video breaking down the whole story of lil uzi verse deal so just go and check it
out if you want to know more in other news dr. Dre got thoroughly clowned often bigging up his daughter for being self-made and getting into the University of Southern California all by herself turned out that he'd actually donated 70 million dollars to the school at which point he quickly deleted that post I guess giving a universe each 17 million dollars just to secure the naming rights for the chronic gymnasium is the only surefire way to make sure that nobody forgets about Dre and in
March we also saw the biggest takeover by one of nas's little exes since police brought her stinky box of milkshakes to the yard in 2018 lil nas ex accidentally created what in a flash of an eye in

2019

would end up being probably the most monumental song of all time lil nas ex bought the beat for Old Town Road from a producer named a Yankee oak for a measly $30 he recorded Old Town Road a humble $20 in our studio in Atlanta in less than an hour before releasing it in December of 2018 now
the track didn't do that much at first but eventually picked up steam after getting attention on this decade most revolutionary platform for grooming tick tock and tick tocks army of 14

year

old Kitty cam girls sir I mean creators saw the emergence of the yeehaw challenge a running meme on tick-tock where people would show themselves transitioning into Cowboys cow women and since its

2019

cow people all set to the sound of little nas ex is an Old Town Road nas ex said that he'd made over
a hundred memes of the song himself oh poor little nas ex does he know how many times we got subjected to this song in

2019

but anyway the tic-tock effect eventually gave the song such a boost that it ended up hitting the Billboard charts in March triggering nas ex lying a seven-figure deal with Columbia Records to distribute the single after what was described as an bidding war that's crazy I mean to me an intense bidding war is still just staying up till 4:00 a.m. on eBay trying to get a
last-minute 94 cents bid in on some news we wear however the racist old codgers at billboard said that the song should be disqualified from being number 19 on the Hot Country Tracks chart because apparently it didn't fit the genre I mean come on the shit's about riding a horse down the old town road what more do you want this sparked a huge debate about the definition of what country music truly was and the possible racism of the genre and the Billboard charts themselves a debate which
definitely wasn't stimulated by Columbia Records to generate attention for the song well off the back of that completely organic discussion the racist old codgers at billboard ended up eating their words as the song got a remix from Billy Ray Cyrus country pop legend and father to the winner of the 2018 stinky saddle award Miley Cyrus the speed at which this record label assisted slam dunk took nas ex to the top stirred up a vast amount of speculation that young nas was just some sort of
industry plant a term which is reserved for artists that seem to explode it's suspiciously quick not off the back of their own merits or buzz with France but record label Schilling backroom deals and paid advertising and the revelation that he'd been running a bunch of mean pages and Nicki Minaj Spann accounts before his success in music didn't really help his case so the record label continued shilling the out of little nas ex putting out remix often god damn remix there was the
Billy Ray Cyrus remix the Diplo remix the young thug remix the sale town remix featuring RM of BTS because you know what a trap country song definitely didn't need thousands of fans of grammy-nominated rapper and community activists Nipsey Hussle are in a state of shock today they're mourning the hip-hop stars ultimately and violent death Nipsey Hussle was murdered in broad daylight outside a clothing store that he owned in South Los Angeles and he was killed just before he was about to
meet with city leaders and the LAPD about reducing gang violence April started with a depressing story that's become far too familiar in hip-hop the news of Nipsey Hussle tragic murder permeated throughout the hip-hop community leaving fans and artists completely devastated his passing was particularly impactful considering the fact that he was taken from us at the height of his career fresh off of the back of releasing an incredible grammy-nominated album victory lap and just as he was
beginning to seemingly make huge progress by investing in his community and taking steps to try and reduce gang violence in his city before long people were lining up to press Earth and pay their respects to the Fallen legend as mostly prayers out to the Nipsey Hussle his family to Lauren London and her family up that this is up so up well the person to man where are the people over here driving down Slauson man driving down Slauson flow in the morning man cuz I can't sleep behind what
happened to MIT man why do to homie like that big and his own stop on this in his own hood man just try to do good for man crazy man I can't even sleep Manny I'm disgusted by the but then again you know what isn't a respectful way to respond to the death of a rat legend yeah off the heels of letting the entire culture down by riding with Gucci in the midst of the blackface scandal following the tragic passing of Nipsey Hussle Kodak black continued his

2019

decline seemingly
suggesting that he would slide in on Nixie hustles Widow Lauren London Oh to be fair he said that he'd give her a

year

to get over it how gentlemanly of you well after all we all know how Kodak likes to treat the ladies don't we naturally friends of Nixie Friends of Lauren or just anybody with a common sense of decency knew that this wasn't okay they said go for Kodak black and any other disrespecting my nicknamed his legacy his family keep my name out your mouth keep his
girl's name watch your mouth the wrong with you new but the person who seemed to take the most offense was Atlanta legend and easiest question on the hiphop cryptic crossword puzzle TI codec glue ya packet Nik fix their shoe quickly expeditiously no packet me they nobody's gonna see you're gonna see it see you never see um see you think you have a packet maybe now after all of the backlash Kodak quickly apologized but not apologized for disrespecting nipsey before going on to
basically diss anybody that had been checking him and you could tell that this was a heartfelt apology because he also for some reason decided to say something about how viral his farts are even though ID and recipes to do but for all you other people like trying to fake act like a little boy me on the internet or checking me on the Internet that's how you feel broke like a poor opal they Authority ah kodak black kodak black but apparently TI didn't let this drama ruin his vacation
quickly clapping back at kodak fans on instagram line a deal without Gina see what I see and then I move the before seemingly realizing that he was in way over his head and quickly trying to get out of the beef by pretending to be a motorcycle that Ducati I maneuver didn't work see I fired more shots by removing Kodak blacks exhibit from the Atlanta trap Museum but apparently Kodak wasn't bothered saying that Museum presumably after looking up water museum Walt's speed up we're
started old man but God I gotta see a pot that was there then at this point t I previewed a kodak black bass track which in my opinion was the moment that this devolved into him genuinely sticking up for nipsey's Widow and just plain cloud chasing not to mention also having a proper Kodak's IQ at the airport yes I had brain capacity could come up with an urgent mayor you know saying you know go to educate himself enlighten them served me and you know saying cuz if you knew better he do
bill I mean it's a bit rich coming from a guy whose rap name is literally only two letters but anyway then the beef reached a sudden crescendo point when Kodak dropped the diss song expeditiously a play on key eyes earlier line that he needs to fix the problems of what he said expeditiously it came with a music video that featured gratuitous shots of Kodak brushing his chains make sure you get those hard-to-reach diamonds at the back code okay and in the track he made some pretty general
sneak this is all about Ti being a snitch suggesting that tip didn't even know nipsey and also dissing his wife tiny it was an average this song but a big portion of disrespect considering the fact that Kodak black was completely in the wrong in this situation t I had a pretty muted reaction to expeditiously saying that if he really had a problem he'd pull up and not make a song I don't make sauce up fuller that's funny cuz it really looked like you've made a song a couple of
days ago but okay and let's be honest P I was kind of already in the wrong for even pursuing this beat after the fact that Kodak had pretty much apologized to Lauren London early on to be honest this whole thing just wasn't really a very good look for tre he's supposed to be this reformed figure of good behavior in hip hop but the whole thing just came across pretty undignified Petty and childish he probably should here's left Kodak to me a fool of himself I mean no one was
riding with Kodak because ironically the way he was describing Kodak in this beef almost described himself oh you had to say with no courier but yeah I mean I'm glad to say well no Kermie ya mean you were at your wedding you were at your room you were actually ultimately this beef fizzled out from here and there was nothing else to say but weirdly all of the attention on Kodak brac and his erratic behavior in this period unexpectedly shined a light on the UK drill scene which was having an
excellent

2019

yes we have drill in the UK it's a bit like Chicago gorillas except instead of guns we have shanks instead of Bloods and Cripps we have postcode gangs and instead of lean we sit double cup Tetley codeine tea around the time of Kodak's nipsey controversy he was actually spotted dancing on instagram live to the UK drill song county lines by incarcerated and previously fairly unknown drill artists frosting this coastline helped frosty strand blow up internationally and
brought a lot of extra attention to the UK drill scene and other big names that were getting huge international shine around this time included a young sniper by the name of digger D who would drop the song no diet scoring a million views within just four days of its release in April racking up around 15 million views on YouTube to this day and landing at number 20 on the UK charts a rarity for a drill sir sadly digger DS run would be short-lived as he eventually ended up in jail on another
charge that is yet unresolved and this led to a truly iconic moment in the UK drill scene were a couple of fans hacked the Metropolitan Police's Twitter account and tweeted free diggedy and hackers weren't the only one loving digger DS music Drake showed his love for digger while chilling with backer not nice and it was actually dregs regular patronage of UK drill in

2019

that led to him in raging British grime legend Wylie who managed to get some amazing free album promo by bait and
Drake into responding to his culture vulture allegations that's some culture vulture like what does I mean I don't understand what that means yeah I didn't like that mmm and his wily that said that you know I'm sound this is name cuz that oh yeah I just didn't like that and the final piece of UK troll news came from Russ who followed up his January hit song gun lien with the T on Wayne assisted tribute to Trap House thoughts to Keisha and Betty this peaked at number 7 on the
UK charts hanging around for 31 weeks and eventually going platinum very rare for a UK drill stop now I know you American viewers are probably sitting around saying I've never heard of rats and it's pretty likely that you're actually unable to listen to the British Russ's music since the petty American rust actually threatened to sue and try to get the British rust to change his name well the British rust didn't cave in because you know he's really tough yeah changing my
name but uh I'll smash my thumb use both so now his music is completely blocked in America and you probably need a VPN to even listen to it a great way to put the brakes on any international development of your career isn't it but hey I'm in favor of it because it seems to be a massive middle finger to the American Russ who everybody seems to agree is totally whacked and it's for that reason that as my own personal fu to the American rust I'm officially changing the title of
my channel to trap all brass hi this is a trap lower Ross English youtuber in it my favorite rap story of

2019

as it has been requested that I address well there's a lot of bad stuff obvious bad stuff you know like people getting arrested kill the Jews well obviously is the worst and I can think of but it you know in terms of positive stuff I'm just gonna go out on a limb and say I got to give it to the baby I'm a big fan of the baby I think it's a great guy I think he
represents such positivity such talents such charisma such energy you know he's gonna be a guy that we're seeing in the game for a long-ass time as far as I'm concerned and I just like that whole positive narrative of him and you know just on it for Vegas I'm a big fan him too I don't know why the am I talking about the baby I couldn't think anything else it doesn't feel like this is like the thing I should be talking about but it was definitely dope to see him come
out I feel like I got to get that interview and also lil nas ice just because of the gay thing after the baby's debut big label album baby on baby dropped in March the foundations for a

2019

take over what truly says the album was frankly a banger laced modern classic which in my opinion was fire from start to finish his lead single sugar slid into the bottom of the charts in April and continued its rice throughout May bringing the baby to the forefront now the public's interest into
baby were initially stimulated by his general shenanigans including a famous incident where he goddamn killed a guy in Walmart and if you don't know that story you are truly tripping because man's did a video about it and it was the most popular thing I ever did go and watch that if you haven't but you hopefully have but it's important to acknowledge the fact that in spite of the shenanigans the baby was also making genuinely amazing music thus creating a perfect storm of talent
and tomfoolery and when he roasts at a height of Fame only a few months later the shenanigans continued and only fueled the legend around him in May he had a couple of truly viral moments including getting in a fight with a dog on an airplane ladies initially were 'muslims begginers darling winning no pretty boss thank you no funky earth let him put the stake in a house dog why didn't you why didn't you fly first-class you know you're too good to have a dog next to you why
don't you fly first but and in eight sir but you guys keep down we're gonna call the police I said matter of fact Carl the police I'm getting off in the next city we fly in private I never want to give his fists of fury arrest he famously put the beats on a human man for harassing him in the louisv store now knowingly I can't actually show you the clip of the beatdown because it probably violates multiple YouTube policies on violence so let's darling main give you the most
expert analysis one could offer alright the fat cam call it art was attempting to buy a belt and then cam ended up on the ground with his pants around his ankles shows why belts are so important you really shouldn't leave home without one honestly there's nothing more simultaneously classy and ratchet than beating someone senseless in the Louie Vuitton store to be fair I've only ever been beaten senseless in the Louie Vuitton store once and that was for jerking off in the changing
room hey maybe if they made their marketing less sexy I wouldn't have to do it and for the record I never jerk off in the Gucci store because they're racist also in May a couple of significant albums drop both Tyler the creator's I gore and DJ Khaled's father of ass are dropped duking it out for billboards number one slot now before we look at who won let's take a look at the pros and cons of each project now the pros forefather of Assad is that it's literally got every
rapper that's ever lived on it Nipsey Hussle check John Legend check Lil Wayne check quavo chance the rapper jay-z future I mean the tracklist of this thing looks like super heads a little black book I swear at this rate dj khaled next album is just gonna have a thousand rappers on there each saying a word e but of course the major con is that on every one of those tracks dj khaled is shouting his goddamn voice all over it and constantly waving his son around in the music videos like some
2019 a year in hip hop
kind of Arabic Tron now Tyler the Creator zeiger album on the other hand is a very camp affair it was all funny wigs and feelings it's a concept album with a deep narrative that supposedly portrays Tyler the Creator seeing a guy called I Gore who is also seeing his ex girlfriend in a strange love triangle I mean this album is rich in things other than money and it made me feel a weird and emotional I don't like it I mean it was almost as if he'd spent a lot of effort crafting a piece

s this album was actually a really significant moment in the hip-hop cultural zeitgeist it was no surprise then that aegyo landed at number one on Billboard and DJ Khaled's father of Assad at number two
we the second best now at this point dj khaled allegedly flipped his lid and stormed into the Epic Records office and threw a temper tantrum apparently he was pissed at the way they'd rolled out the album this was made even worse by the fact that his attempts to finesse more album sales by bundling copies with shitty cans of pop completely failed and to make matters worse he then posted then deleted a bitter rant against Tyler's album recorded from the backseat of his 1 million dollar
Maybach Landaulet convertible oh it's a hard life being number two isn't it Khaled and I say this too I make out and so people could play it and you actually hear it you know driving your car you're another car player you know go to the barbershop and hear them playing it you know turn the radio on and you hear them playing it you know it's playing everywhere it's called great music it's called albums that you actually hear the song not know mysterious by me doll he
seemed to inadvertently describe his own album is only being good if you heard it from a distance from a passing car or under the sound of clippers in a barber shop ya calles that's a good point because I actually listen to your album from an iPhone that was nestled between the butt cheeks of a fat man's as your tracks played in between muffled wet baths I've got to say it definitely improved the listening experience Khaled was mad that Tyler's album was all mysterious I mean the
audacity of a man that doesn't even rap or produce the songs on his own album on someone else they're actually made of good piece of art because it's mysterious the only thing mysterious about Callens album is it's a mystery what contribution he even made to the thing I mean honestly all of his albums might as well have been made by a googly-eye that had been fed nothing but slow rider albums for 10

2019

Nicki Minaj missing posters emerged as fans wondered where she disappeared to over

2019

and to be fair they have reason to be concerned I mean she'd been hanging out with a killer after all one of my personal favorite of the

year

dropped from young thug clone lil keed proving
that no matter how far hip-hop evolves there's always new noises you can make with your mouth but there was actually one big release that everybody had been anticipating for better or for worse and in June we'd finally find out if nobody's favorite cowboy could capture lightning once again Familia probably the first song I made for this EP you know it was kind of like just me liking him mindset of almost you know like a person who's gone from nothing and now they're like
moving up in the world and like they've had like these fans before they started to like really pop and those fans don't love you as much in the morning me like be fans or maybe like family members or something like that yes in June person lil nas ex attempted to do the impossible following up quite literally the biggest song in the world that he'd made completely by accident he released his sequel panini and had fans baffled why was little nas ex using his moment in the spotlight to
declare his love for mediocre rectangular sandwiches that you commonly find in pret Mondrian Starbucks maybe Starbucks is where little Miles X is gonna work when those cowboy chicks coming I don't know upon closer inspection it turned out that the song's title panini was actually a reference to the Cartoon Network's children's show chowder I mean it makes sense many people thought that the recent old town road had been such a hit was it simple lyrics that refer to driving
tractors or riding horses I mean these basic bars are most enjoyed by very young children kids just learning to read or at a stretch kodak black and soon after the track the music video for panini dropped which i think is best described as old town wrote in space but thankfully the track also got a remix from de baby making it just about bearable with a fire verse that once again proved a baby was truly here to stay lots of people praised this as a massive w4 lil nas ex proving once and for all
that he wasn't a one-hit wonder but I kind of disagree old town road was truly the biggest run anyone has ever had on the charts and he had an impossible task and although it's a w4 panini to come out of the gate landing at number 4 on billboard the success of this song was really just the after-effects of Old Town Road being such a huge hit Old Town Road was another record and in the sense so was panini being that it was a novelty to see the old town road guy trying to follow up Old
Town Road in Spurrier's the only other contender that he had for a follow up hit was the track rodeo with car DB which only reached number 22 on the Billboard show a track that in my opinion was actually pretty damn good much better than panini it's a little similar to Old Town Road frankly little nose X's in kind of a shitty position I mean it's basically impossible to follow up Old Town Road you can top a number one hit after all Wiz Khalifa was nearly a one-hit wonder with
black in yellow but then see you again with Charlie Pooh blew out the water

year

s later but Old Town Road has now had the biggest billboard run ever he literally can never beat it and look if he does I'll eat my words and admit that he is literally the greatest artist of all time yeah this guy unlikely and yes I know what you're thinking trampled or Ross you're 0 for 0 on billboard the album that you dropped for a joke this

the African American community in this country and when I say African American I think I can really say from everybody in this country this whole Sharad even included a bizarre moment where it seemed pretty clear to me but ASAP Rocky must have piped down Melania at some point actually the one who knew about a said rocky was our first lady right and Trump eventually made an ace at rocky pile on his Twitter account that genuinely convinced me that we were living in a simulation Trump law over
here ultimately for a minute this was the biggest news in hip hop and a lot of misinformation circulated people said rocky was living in squalor and sleeping on a yoga mat there were reports that people in his cell was smearing feces all over the wall but on closer inspection it just turned out that it was a shelf of DJ coward CDs in the end the whole drama played out publicly in the with some of the courtroom sketches at least giving ASAP rocky half a decade of album covers to choose well and
after being held captive in Sweden for a couple of weeks ASAP Rocky was eventually released even though he was convicted on a minor charge we have some breaking news to bring to you the the rapper ASAP rocky has been found guilty of assault in Stockholm the Swedish Court says the victim in the case will be awarded damages and once again I did a whole video about rocky and other rappers getting arrested in Sweden so do go and watch that if you must in other news chants the rappers album the big

2019

double XL freshmen list included Y&W Melly who wasn't included because he smoked his buddies NLE Tropper who apparently blew up to recently to be included poll og I am actually genuinely not sure why he wasn't on the list because he was quite good juice world who admitted that he actually turned down being on the list
check West who couldn't make it because he was accused of stalking and abusing the singer Justine Skye lil baby who was arguably too big for the list by the time it went to print plus the fact that Donna got on the list was almost a consolation prize because at this point lil baby was already racking up more plaques than a crank themed on his life - and of course lil nas ex who was by far too famous to be included on the list at this point and also technically at this point is way more of a
cowboy than a rapper but following her inclusion on the list Megan Vai stallion dropped the song hot girls summer making sure that August

2019

long to their lady after the phrase hot girl summer went viral on Twitter in July Megan set out to capitalize on the phrase that she'd coined in her songs cashier and on the cover of her

2019

mixtape fever to support her she pulled in a fading star Nicki Minaj and the master of using symbols to shorten things that would take longer to say ty dolla
sign and it featured a music video which included probably the most intimidating looking pool party in history rapper jay-z has agreed to partner with the National Football League to promote social justice initiatives and expand entertainment options but many see the move as a betrayal of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in August jay-z made his latest business finesse by confirming a partnership between his rock nation and the NFL the particulars of the deal said that
rock nation would now help the NFL advise on selecting artists for major NFL performances such as the Super Bowl hey you know who would be super for this Super Bowl performance jay-z and you know who would be great for the next Super Bowl jay-z the one after the jay-z what about the next Gaz however after the deal was announced people were immediately pissed because ex 49er Colin Kaepernick was still going unsigned by an NFL team after the season where he infamously kneeled during the national
anthem to protest against racial injustice in the wake of caps still being left out in the cold by the NFL many people called jay-z a sellout and a hypocrite though jay-z himself said that he's spoken to cap about the deal and that he was viewing his involvement with the NFL as a step forward to attempt to influence change from the inside but then he started catching more flak for being two-faced after it emerged that jay-z had apparently told JD Jermaine Dupri not to work with the NFL back
in 2018 and it didn't take long for the Baron of bitterness himself Dame Dash to offer his expert analysis that perhaps jay-z's unusual behavior might be the result of eating his own dukey's I mean everybody knows jay-z like that everyone knows it apparently the deal also included a partnership for rock nation to provide a currently undetermined program relating to social justice likely playing a role in the NFL's recently launched inspire change initiative on the one hand a lot
of people suggested that giving an already rich and powerful black man like jay-z yet another opportunity to cash in off the NFL's dime doesn't really address the issue of injustice other people pointed out and this can only be a step in the right direction and giving jay-z a platform influence change and promote social justice from the inside should be worth a try hey hopefully he can do both fixing systemic racism in the NFL making another billion dollars and finally live out the dream
of bringing an NFL team to the Marcy projects don't wrap this baby whoa also in

has got to be 6-9 and his trial first off the memes were phenomenal
second off there was so much crazy that was released to the public that most people completely overlooked the footage and audio of 6:9 getting kidnapped by his own gang was just released to the public the FBI tacked a bunch of phone calls between Trey way members saying how they want to set up six and nine and kill him and now I got released public like it's literally a Netflix original series just waiting to be made so six 9s trial and all the information that came out of it the apartment

but it was also revealed that six nine intended to turn down witness protection if he eventually gets released attending to pick up his career where he left it and make a comeback but it seemed there was one person on the other side of hip-hop make him quite the opposite of a comeback as Nicki Minaj finally decided to hang up her stinky leopard-print leotard once and for all she had an incredible journey to the throne of hip-hop queen but heavy is the but that wears the crown and
since cardi B's arrival on the scene it seemed like hip-hop only had space for one giant fake-ass having songstress and on top of that Nicki was having some trouble maintaining her relevance some felt that she was really failing to recapture her previous Billboard success with her recent releases she'd only recently had an embarrassing L after pulling a DJ Khaled and getting mad salty at Travis Scott after her album came in at number two after his mono he's got Fanta Ross Khaled or
Nicki her to

singles Megatron and Tusa scored billboard positions 20 and 79 respectively but in our defense she was having success appearing as a feature on already popping songs with genuinely good verses including Megan the Stallions hot girls summer some said that this was proof that she was still killing it other said that this was proof that she was falling off and can only remain relevant by attaching herself to already successful songs and artists and in addition to that nicki minaj

her case for him being a reformed character by spending twenty nineteen running around threatening to SiC her killer boyfriend on people that don't like her music like DJ academics so a lot of fans and internet trolls truly weren't feeling Nicki Minaj's vibes at this point and it really felt like in

real by comparison she looks like a measly million dollar store Kylie Jenner and for the record she denied the rumors of cheating to some people came out the woodwork and said that the real reason for the split was that Kylie was upset that Travis Scott haven't made a marriage commitment to her hey maybe she was trying to make his broke ass sign a prenup and after all they have been rumored to have tied the knot a couple of times but regardless after the split Kylie petty went from the

was Kanye's will he won't he album drew all the way back in 2018 Kanye announced that his new album would be called Yandy and this evolved the
yeezus cover art did the rounds for a couple of months I mean Kanye must have sinned a lot during the recording of this album because even though he's a good guy Gandhi is kind of a step down from Jesus I personally would have liked to have seen Kanye really have some balls named his album yahwah for a picture of the prophet mohammed on the cover and get that fat pocket now that's how you market an album and be forced into hiding but Yandy rumours ran all the way through 2018 and

2019

people said it was gonna have six nine extant a C on the me goes and then he was seen recording in Miami with T grizzly Lil Wayne Y&W Mellie and then mysteriously his Sunday service session started popping up as you can see in this footage here with Kanye West at one of the first Sunday services seemingly pressing the Crouch button on his keyboard over and over again and Kanye Sunday service sessions did the rounds all through

2019

popping up in fields all over the US like some sort of Yeezy
season car boot sale apparently during this time Kanye really begun to find his faith even bringing in his pastor Adam Tyson to work on his Jesus is king out nicki minaj revealed around mid

2019

that Kanye had truly become a born-again Christian and eventually Kim revealed the title and tracklist of Kanye's new gospel album on the same Twitter account that she uses to post gratuitous pics of her nice cans how Christian of her but hypocrisy aside she announced the album's release date
September 29th and when that day finally came we here to spread the gospel I'm not here for your entertainment after a period of radio silence Jesus's King finally dropped right at the end of October which meant that November was only about one thing is this any good well the album seemed to divide hip-hop into two distinctive counts people who liked Jesus is king and dirty sinners destined to hail you will burn in hail now I personally love the album it's highly ambitious and I
think it deserves respect for the following reasons it's really hard to make a gospel album that is genuinely sonically interesting it's really hard to make a clean hip-hop album that still has something to say and isn't conceptually whack on some vanilla rice he got the clips back together on a track which allowed no malice to actually spit a relevant verse for the first time in a decade and of course finally the means about Pusha T having to write a verse that wasn't about
cocaine because it's a gospel album really made me laugh well Yai's risky gospel rap concept truly paid off and in the first week it sold two hundred and sixty four thousand copies landing at number one on the Billboard chart and on top of that it also broke records by landing at the top of several other Billboard charts including top Christian albums top gospel albums top R&B and hip hop albums and top rap albums and I assume it also topped the commemorative Y&W Nelly serious

January the Glock and a bunch of weed so the feds closed in and in November Kodak ended up copping a plea that saw a potentially 96 month sentence reduced down to 46 and to be honest things are looking too good for little Kodak he's still awaiting trial for an open rape case that he caught in North Carolina and by the sounds of it he can't even catch a break while he's in the can as apparently he'd got put in the hole for having a fight with a prison guard that eventually led to

I appreciate you letting me be in the video bro peace out rapper juice world is dead after suffering a medical emergency at Chicago's Midway Airport the rapper whose real name is Jerrod Anthony Higgins had just gotten off a flight from California this morning when he collapsed he was rushed to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead he just turned 21 last week on December 2nd southern tragedy struck in December where seemingly out of nowhere juice world past after
having a seizure at Chicago Airport this loss was particularly acute for the hip-hop community as

had truly been drew swells

his second album death race for love dropped in March and had been a billboard number-one hit social media was instantly bereft with tributes as well as stock warnings against drug use amid reports that his death may have been caused by a drug overdose or withdrawal and while as the days passed unusual details surrounding the circumstances of juice world's
death emerged including reports that a large amount of drugs and some guns were found on the airplane as well as speculation as to why juice world might have taken a fatal dose of drugs none of that really mattered because regardless of the circumstances as to why juice world passed the true story here wasn't about what was going on on that plane but it was really about the tragic loss of one of hip-hop's most promising talents seemingly at the hands of a tough relationship that he'd
had with drugs for many

year

s it was heartbreaking to look back and see that over the course of his career he'd always been open about not wanting to go out this way in fact whilst traveling over to the US for Christmas I was shocked in the airport to see a cover of double-xl magazine with juice world on the front cover for a minute I was thinking how the hell can these guys print magazines so fast before I realized that this had actually been printed before he passed and I was even more
shocked when I bought the magazine and read his interview which had a huge title quoting him saying that he didn't want to go out this way to me both of these things really drove home just how well do swirled was doing in

2019

but also just how big of a part his drug habit had played in his story up until this point when I heard future the first song I ever heard my future was ain't no way around it the second song I've ever heard of our future is dirty sprite like for off the first

another casualty this loss hit the rap community particularly hard juiciest friends and peers came out and disbelief that he could have been taken from us so soon right at the height of his potential at this point 20 19 felt like such a huge alpha hip-hop and everything was just falling apart not only had we also lost an MC but also in the UK we'd seen the loss of two promising young rappers cadet and bits of the Harlem sparks it's been a hard

and the scene has lost a lot of
talented souls and honestly at this point it's just so hard to muster up any enthusiasm for all of the other hip-hop stories of December Oh Nick Cannon tried to make a comeback by dropping some Eminem diss songs they were shared next o-69 wrote a letter to the judge begging to have his sentence reduced they'll probably get some clicks oh let loose you vote released another lame song with the stupid dance whatever you know what I'm got the energy for this anymore this yeah you
