Favorite Features In Hip-hop

Hip Hop artists that are always ace when featured in a song.

Another producer that I love for their sound. Samples of horns, glass breaking, car crashing, horns blowing all collide together into a cacophony of andrenaline pumping trap. Case in point, when TNGHT's "R U Ready" sample kicks in on Blood On The Leaves... Oh god. Its amazing.
4MF Doom
Operation: Doomsday

I love MF Dooms feature as a producer. I'm always able to spot a Doom production; its just that unique. Those samples and boom-bap production style is infamous.
3The Weeknd
House of Balloons

My reasoning for The Weeknd is simply this: When he is featured on a song, it is no longer a [insert artist] track. Its a Weeknd track. He just turns all the lights on himself(ie: Crew Love and One of Those Nights). And depending on your stance with The Weeknd, that can be a great thing, or an extremely annoying thing. For me, I love it.
2Danny Brown

Danny, just like Kendrick, makes everyone else on the track look Juvenile when he spits on a feature. Really my 1 and 2 can be flipped at any point, Danny's style just seems to stand out even more when he is featured.
1Kendrick Lamar
good kid, m.A.A.d city

Kendrick kills every verse that I've ever heard him featured in. I don't know why people feel like the 'Control' verse was his best feature, I mean I guess subject matter in terms of mainstream was important, but lyrical hip hop is still out there.
