  • Cover of Samples Of The Week: July 17
    When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music.

    Frank Ocean recently settled a lawsuit with Chipotle in a pretty badass way-- at least, we thought he did. The singer was paid a hefty sum to contribute some vocals to an ad campaign, but he never followed through.

  • Cover of Underrated Audio: December 21- December 27
    Although it is the holidays, rappers never stop putting in work. Rappers love to release shit on holidays specifically, and this year was no different. Quite a few artists came through with big records in the spirit of Xmas, but there were also some smaller gems which we're shining light on in Underrated Audio.
  • Cover of Review: Action Bronson & Party Supplies' "Blue Chips 2"
    Action Bronson is not your typical rapper. The portly fire-flame gourmet chef turned rapper with a shock of curly red beard, whose father is an Albanian immigrant and mother is a Jewish New Yorker, looks nothing like his peers.
  • Cover of Action Bronson Talks "Blue Chips 2," Attacks On His Character
    Action Bronson is known for his colorful personality. While his off-the-wall nature can be responsible for incredible lines like "Grown men turn the keys to cheese, as I water ski Belize," it's also garnered some criticism-- with some accusing the rapper of misogyny.

  • Cover of Talking To Logic & C-Sick On "Two Kings"
    Logic was quietly grinding in his hometown of Maryland for some time, releasing tape after tape, before he hit it big and signed a deal with Def Jam. His story is similar to that of many rappers: an absentee father, a mother with a drug addiction, and a high school drop out. However, Logic is not your average rapper.
  • Cover of Underrated Audio: August 31- September 6, 2013
    After a hiatus last week, Underrated Audio returns today to bring you several overlooked records that dropped in the past seven days. We've had an influx of mixtapes recently, which have provided us with most of these tracks-- no Lil Wayne on this feature though.

    With the hectic-ness that was HOT 97's Summer Jam UA was missing from the site last week. Nonetheless, today we return in full force looking back at tracks that were posted within the past fourteen days instead of seven, because as usual, more than a few dope cuts have gone overlooked.

  • Cover of Underrated Audio: February 19-26
    It seems like good music has been slow lately. Although we're still being bombarded with content on the daily, it seems like you have to wade through a lot to find the gems.
  • Cover of Underrated Audio: July 24- July 30
    Last week was kind of under-wheming on the new-music-I-enjoy front, but we have some promising releases in the very near future. See three jams below that deserve a listen.Sir Michael Rocks- Can’t Hide Feat. Rockie Fresh
