In the past 12-month analysis of social conversations, Drake has dominated, consistently sparking more social media interest than Kanye West and Jay-Z. And its not even close. An article over at USA Today points out a study by Networked Insights which indicates Drizzy Drake is far ahead in the lead as the rapper who has the biggest social media presence, nearly doubling the second place holder, Yeezy. Drake showed more consistency throughout time. However, social media conversations spiked for each artist when something of prominence happened to them, for example, Yeezus and Magna Carta Holy Grail release dates.
