What do you get when you cross Young Thug, the Hills and twenty miniature cars? A masterpiece. Young Thug has just released the video to his critically acclaimed song Wyclef Jean. Set against the backdrop of Los Angeles' famous Hills, the video has pretty much everything except the man himself. The video tells the story of the production crew and their struggles to film a video without the rapper and how they had to improvise but we think it came out pretty well. Starting things off, a recording of Young Thug talks about a juxtaposition where the adults and kids swap keys and take each other's cars for a spin, smashing up a police car on the way. We finally get a glimpse of Young Thug thanks to some footage recorded with a private jet and a packet of Cheetos but that's bout as far as it goes. Moving to a backyard pool party, an instagram hack, arguing bodyguards and threats of shutting it down cause havoc but there's no doubt that it's one of the best videos out there. Watch it. Again.

1. Christmas in Harlem - Kanye West ft Cyhi Da Prynce & Teyana Taylor To start with Mr. West is a given as there's rarely a song of his that isn't a hit so when he announced his return to music with a Friday giveaway in 2010 people went crazy for it, and rightly so. He finished them off in December with Christmas in Harlem. An uplifted track about living the good life back home in Chicago with la

After bravely discussing his fight with his own demons back in October Scott Mescudi, better known as Kid Cudi, has seemingly left his troubles behind him with his trippy new album Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’. The elongated 19-track album which was originally scheduled to drop in October, follows on from his Man on the Moon series; splitting into four distinct acts with each telling a story as enthralling as the last. Frequency headlines Act I, which as a whole is a pretty slow builder. Each track is quite mellow to start with, slowly building the tempo for what is the highlight of Act I - a surprise feature by Andre 3000. Taking things to another level, By Design gives us a snippet of those Outkast vibes that are long overdue. Act II just seems a little dirtier, like Cudi has opened up his thoughts to us in a really gritty but honest way. Features seem to be the subject of conversation though with Willow Smith, Travis Scott & Pharrell Williams all prominent throughout the next few

J. Cole managed to go platinum with an album that contained no features and that kind of begs the question, is he one of the best? When 2014 Forest Hills Drive released the critics went crazy over a young rapper from Carolina who took influences from both the East & West Coasts. Boasting a mentor in none other than Jay-Z, Cole spoke fondly of the influences that the likes of Tupac, Biggie Smalls, Snoop Dogg and Eminem had on his style and with inspiration like that - who needs features? On Friday, J.Cole finally released his long awaited follow up album in the form of 4 Your Eyez Only and what's most apparent from a couple of runs through the album is that he doesn't really care to be famous. In a year that has seen Kanye West drop an album, have another child, a couple of clothing lines and a mental breakdown, all in the public eye, it's quite refreshing to hear from a guy who's happy to fold clothes and drink almond milk at home with his family. Whether J. Cole will go platinum for the second time is yet to be seen, but it's safe to say that he's back in the game and sitting pretty at the top where he belongs.
