With 2014 closing its proverbial doors we here at iHipHop took the time to reflect on the last 12 months and complied our Best of 2014 post, which features eight categories best encapsulating 2014. Overall, in our assessment of 2014, we have come to the conclusion that it has been an interesting year for hip-hop and its culture, and here we get to dwell on the pleasant surprises rather than the (many) disappointments and utter letdowns. For us, it was either come up with year-end lists you’ll see after the jump or walk away pondering how 2014 gave us more social media hip-hop scuffles than bringing people together (a la Iggy Azalea vs. Azealia Banks.) And frankly, that’s a prospect just too depressing to contemplate. With that being said, check out iHipHop’s Best of 2014 and enjoy!
