    Alicia Keys' 12 Best Rap Collaborations
    This week, Alicia Keys dropped her latest album, <em>Girl on Fire</em>. The New York native has been a favorite of rappers and hip-hop heads since exploding onto music's main stage with her 2001 debut, <em>Songs in A Minor</em>, but she rarely collaborates with rhymeslingers. This year, though, she's worked with two of the game's biggest, in Nicki Minaj and 50 Cent, and can often be seen (with good reason) alongside her husband, hip-hop hitmaker Siwzz Beatz. In honor of the new album, <em>XXL</em> takes a look at Alicia Keys' 12 Best Rap Collaborations.

    I guess Drake’s “Fireworks” wasn’t deemed worthy by a magazine that dickrides YMCMB.
