April 1 is not only April Fools Day, it's also the first day of the second quarter of 2014. That means the year is just starting to take shape. But even if we're only three months into the year, plenty of noteworthy things have happened. Guys like Pharrell, Kid Cudi, Rick Ross, YG, and ScHoolboy Q all dropped albums to much fanfare and discussion. Meanwhile, A-list stars like Jay Z, Drake, and Kanye West didn't have to release a ton of music to keep their names in headlines.
Oh, and let's not forget some of the other major talking points of the year so far: OutKast reuniting, Macklemore winning too many Grammys and becoming vilified, Young Thug becoming the most talked about young rapper, Lil Boosie coming home from jail, and the never-ending saga of Justin Bieber. It's been an pretty eventful year already but there's definitely more to come. To recap, here's What The Hell Just Happened in Music During the First Quarter of 2014?
