    Artists who performed at the Grammys or (better yet?) won an award, gained more than just the honor—they gained new fans, perhaps reached a wider audience than usual and thus increased sales of their music. Over the past week, overall album sales increased 17%, which is due in part to the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, but also, Valentine’s Day-- lest we forget the extremely commercialized holiday. There were definitely some urban artists who benefited from

    All eyes were on the world of music as it was the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, which many artists used as a platform to push new material and make announcements of upcoming projects.   As far as the world of hip hop and R&B went, there were no real notable new releases.  The biggest new project to drop was Joe Budden’s, who, following the success of his A Loose Quarter mixtape, was looking to capitalize with a studio project.  Unfortunately for Joey, his fans seem to be enthusiastic about downloading his free projects, but not crazy

    Just as we mentioned last week, it seems we now have some chart-toppers that are here to stay, at least for the time being. We've seen the first four artists below consistently on Charts Don't Lie since their respective albums dropped. All are steadily selling, and if they do decrease in sales, it isn't by a vast amount. We're also finally seeing the r'n'bers make their way off Charts, with Alicia Keys now sitting below T.I.

    A$AP Rocky has been on a promo binge since the release of his album Long.Live.A$AP, which included a trip to London where he met up with Life + Times. During their conversation, Rocky discussed his album sales in light of the early leak, the possibility of working with two female Harlem rappers, misconceptions about him and more.

    Kendrick Lamar was right, “real people want real music, the Jig Is Up.” With A$AP Rocky’s album leaking incredibly early, the very solid debut studio effort from the Harlemite continues to sell.  All the albums making our Charts this week are featured on some kind of “Best Of” list, and as far as Hip Hop/R&B sales are concerned, fans are purchasing quality projects from artists.

    This week we see a new chart-topper arrive, the New York rapper who takes on that southern style, A$AP Rocky. Rocky's debut album, Long.Live.A$AP did surprisingly well. We see albums leak all the time-- usually it's just a week prior to the album's release though. In Rocky's case, we saw it leak a month early. However, Rocky continued doing promo and dropping singles, not worrying about the album leak or bumping his release date up. And it worked out well for him, he still sold a large amount of copies, and landed #1 on the Billboard 200.

    Feeling the back to school/work doldrums now that summer is disappearing into the rear view mirror of your whip?  Don't worry, just because the hot weather is nearly gone doesn't mean there aren't hot albums on the horizon (even if you have to play them in your ride with the top up). HotNewHipHop compiled a list of ten of the hottest LPs dropping this fall, some with singles you've already heard, some with delays, and some that you may have heard little about.

    I'm going to assume everyone's seen the XXL Freshman 2012 list, unless you're seriously out of touch with the internet...in which case you probably wouldn't be on HNHH in the first place. The always controversial list was once again, well, controversial. Many wondered where ASAP Rocky was (he declined) and everyone had their own thoughts about who should or shouldn't have been on the list.

    Word Up: Joint Projects In Hip-Hop Becoming A Trend
    Feb 23, 2012 at 12:42 PM
    A recent trend that has surfaced in hip-hop is to do collaborative projects with another artist. I'm not saying that artists haven't done this before, I'm saying that it's become a trend. Arguably two of the greatest, Kanye West & Jay-Z, may have gotten this trend going when they dropped Watch The Throne. That was definitely a successful collab that everyone was (and still is, it seems) pumped about. And now there have been rumours of a lot of other joint efforts coming up (and some have already dropped).
