With an unexpectedly sample-heavy release from Drake blowing up your newsfeeds all week, we have a wealth of tracks to pick from for Samples Of The Week. We could've easily devoted this entire thing to If You're Reading This It's Too Late, but we thought we'd spare you another feature article on Drake. Still, one or two songs from the tape are included on here.

The rap game is still buzzing as we head into the final weeks of the year and await for the hearing from Ferguson. While the latter hasn't been announced when this post was published, rappers did find other things to be outraged about.

Joe Budden Says New Slaughterhouse Album Is "By Far" Their Best Project, Will Feature Action Bronson Nov 12, 2013 at 03:18pm
Joe Budden certainly seems confident in the new Slaughterhouse project. The New York wordsmith also made sure to stress that his feelings about the LP are sincere, realizing just how often "rappers say that" to promote their albums.  "The Slaughterhouse album is great," Budden said in a recent interview with Hot 97. "It's much better than the shit we did last time. I won't call it shit. That was a figure of speech, but it's much better music. It's the best music we've ever made by far."

 Nothing too new is going on in the game this past week. In other words, hip-hop is just going right now. And that's not bad: Vince Staples is alive and still hating on Chris Paul, Jay Z still knows how to tweet, Meek Mill is still free and he's #woke. Common and John Legend won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song ("Glory" from Selma), but other than that, things have been a 40 degree day. The tweets are still fire though.

For some, a New Year's Day is just another day — except a little newer. That's the impression you'd get from a quick glance at rap Twitter. Old grievances carried on to 2015. But that's OK, because there are only three things that matter: new Migos, new Kanye West and Plain Pat. Check out the details on 140 Bars Or Less.

The 10 Most Ridiculous Scenes In Action Bronson's "Mr. Wonderful"
The 10 Most Ridiculous Scenes In Action Bronson's "Mr. Wonderful" Mar 23, 2015 at 01:48pm
The cover to Action Bronson's new album, Mr. Wonderful, shows an illustration of Bronson spread-eagle perched atop a golden staircase. It's inspired by a scene from the 1988 American kung-fu film Bloodsport, in which the main character sits in the same pose overlooking Hong Kong as he prepares for battle. Indeed, much of Mr. Wonderful is inspired by cinema.

HOT97 Summer Jam XX Recap: Festival Village With Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$, A$AP Ferg & More! Jun 5, 2013 at 06:00pm
The Festival Village stage was a special event for HNHH, as we actually served as a sponsor, and had our own tent at the show. So not only did we get to take in all the performances, but also had Kid Ink, A$AP Ferg, and Action Bronson stop by the tent for autographs and interviews. The first performer of the day started off with some of the most brutal honesty we heard on-stage. "Y'all might not know me now, but you're going to know me im 2 years!". We're still not sure of the performers name, but check back in 2015!

Action Bronson Shares The Artwork For "Mr. Wonderful" Feb 12, 2015 at 10:15am
After tweeting the tracklist for his highly anticipated Mr. Wonderful, Action Bronson just got on Instagram to share the artwork for the project. The CD cover shows a shirtless Bronson perched atop some golden steps, addressing a crowd we can't see, with "Sincerely, Mr. Wonderful" signed in cursive above him. It's designed by FRKO, who did the totally crazy cover art (which shows Bronson riding a laser-headed, missile-firing shark through space) for "Actin Crazy," the second single off Mr. Wonderful.
