OK, so Drizzy isn’t technically employed as an A&R, but for all the artists he’s broken on a national level over the past year, he’s the best unofficial A&R in the game. A rundown of the emerging artists whose profiles were significantly raised through his co-sign this year is proof enough. He signed eccentric Atlanta rap-singer Makonnen to his OVO Sound label, boosted Tinashe’s already-buzzing single “2 On” with a surprise remix, reinvigorating Soulja Boy’s waning career with his take on “We Made It,” and put Detroit newcomer Dej Loaf on the map by quoting her single “Try Me” on his Instagram.
