2014 is upon us, and with it many promises and predictions from rappers and producers alike. While last year may have been the year that most of the heavyweights weighed in—Drake, Jay Z, Kanye West, Eminem—this year the hip-hop world seems, if possible, even more excited to see what’s coming up. Will Rick Ross’ Mastermind live up to the hype? Will OutKast really get back together, and if so, will it involve new music? Will Kanye and Kendrick really drop new albums? And will Lil Boosie finally see freedom this February? There are a lot of questions, and a lot of anxious fans waiting to see what will and what won’t happen. With all that in mind, XXL has compiled a list of the 15 things—albums, events, business moves and the rest—that we’re looking forward to in 2014. Nothing will be the same.
