Seven Reasons why Hip hop will have a great 2014

2013 was great year for hip hop, and continued prominence in 2014 look like its in the forecast. Here are a few reasons,in no particular order,why things are looking even better.

Lil Boosie Release

Lil Boosie (real name Torrence Hatch) was arrested in 2009 for violating his parole where he plead guilty to marijuana charges, then pleaded guilty again in 2011 for attempting to smuggle drugs into prison. After continuous speculation and many false dates given, it looks like Boosie, (his real name) Torrence Hatch, is finally set to be released on August 18, 2014. And this time it definitely is a go as the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections has posted the date as well. Pam Laborde, the agency’s communications director of NOLA.com also mentioned that Boosie will probably be under supervision until June 17, 2018. Though largely a regional underground rapper, Boosie has accumulated quite a following via social media since his incarceration. #FreeBoosie is often a trending topic on twitter and his facebook page has over three and a half million likes. Good things may be happening for Boosie in 2014 following his release, with rumors that Rick Ross is hinting at a possible deal with Maybach Music Group.

Good Kid Mad City at the Grammys

Kendrick-Lamar-Good-Kid-Maad-City
With seven Grammy nominations, GKMC, is an instant classic. Kendrick Lamar’s first album solidified the west coast lyricist as a star. Lacking any real “Cross over “ singles, (“Don’t Kill My Vibe” was the closest) the album portrays California life through the eyes of Kendrick and a few of his counterparts. A story from front to back, its look to be an important album in Hip Hop.

The Return Of “The Crew”

Last Year year during the BET Awards the strength of “Crew Love” was evident. With the likes of Supergroups like Slaughterhouse(Joell Ortiz,Royce da 5’9, Joe Budden & Crooked I) and Black Hippy(Ab-Soul,Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, and Jay Rock) kill the cyphers. Even the two-man group like, Run The Jewels(Killer Mike & El-P) and Audiopush are flexing the collaborative efforts.The team effort proves to be a successful one currently. Even the producers are getting in on it, recently Just Blaze, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League , IllMind , Cardiak, and AraabMUZIK have come together to collaborate together.

Beyonce

She’s currently grossing over $2 million per city,and on pace to have her top fiscal year ever, and if her new album helps sustain the addition of more shows and sell more tickets for her existing winter gigs, the financial impact could be far greater than that of Beyoncé’s record-setting iTunes sales.

The Backpack Rapper

While there was a public declaration of the death of Hip-Hop, it remained alive in the underground,cultivating a new breed of rapper.The “Backpack Rapper” is just another name conscious rap.Where real-life situations and emotions are expressed at a more genuine level on wax. Emcees like Joey Badass and Chance The Rapper, have forgone the gangsta mentality and still be able keep it real amongst thier peers..

RocNation Sports

In the late 90’s Jay z’s Roc-A-Fella brand was home to some of the most creative artists of its generation.It seem Jay wants to do the same in the sports world.Formed in 2013, Roc Nation Sports was founded by Jay-Z and co-partner Creative Artists Agency,
They’ve already signed many big names,like NBA superstar Kevin Durant, or WNBA phenom Skylar Diggins,.Roc Nation also signed Robinson Cano, MLB second Baseman, and brokered a 10-year $240million Deal.With rumors, Teddy Bridgewater, All-American College quarterback,is close to signing, its no slowing down The Roc.

Kanye’s Self inflicted Gag Order

“I’m not going to ever bring up Nike again. And the only way I’ll bring them up is in a positive light because I actually appreciate the opportunity to have been able to make my own shoe with them,and if I didn’t have the opportunity I wouldn’t have my deal I have with Adidas right now” “I’ll Never bring up the Grammy’s again in a negative light, cause I actually appreciate the 21 Grammy’s I did win,regardless of what categories they in, cause I’m not finna be the dude that has all the opportunity in the world and just focus on the negative and complains about it….”

On Dec. 23 in Toronto, Chicago rapper Kanye West let us know who has the answers.What most websites call a rant, I call a humbling portrayal of a human being .
He expressed his feelings and gave a response to how his year in the public’s has constantly portrayed him in a negative light.He even promised to a sold out Toronto crowd to not speak negatively about anyone or thing for, at least six months.He plans to focus all his energy into his music and other creative outlets, like his deal creating a shoe at Adidas. Kanye looks as if he is primed to have an interesting and important year.
