Welcome 2 Brooklyn
M.O.P Feat. Maino
For a duo whose best-known track also competes for the title of the most amped-up, shouty hip-hop track to predate Flockaveli (the legendary "Ante Up"), M.O.P have been dropping surprisingly smooth tracks in preparation for their new EP. "Welcome 2 Brooklyn," which also features Maino, is taken from Street Certified, which drops tomorrow.
Maino Feat. O-Wave
Following the recent release of his “No Type” remix, Maino decides to keep the new content moving and release an all new original track called “Militant”, featuring Brooklyn’s O Wave.
Laughing At The Haters
DJ Kay Slay Feat. Maino, Raekwon, Jim Jones & Tony Yayo
DJ Kay Slay is really putting on for NY on his latest The Original Man tape. Due to be released on Tuesday (November 4th), the hotly anticipated project has thus far inspired three drops here at HNHH, all three of which are composed almost entirely of East Coast emcees. The last single, "Don't Say Nothing To Me," dropped yesterday to reader-acclaim. Given the tonal similarities and the quality of the guest verses, "Laughing At The Haters" should be met with equal or greater enthusiasm. The instrumental on this one is courtesy of Gotti Gator.
No Type (Remix)
Following the recent release of his Meek Mill & Yo Gotti-featured record “All These Hoes”, Maino decides to keep the new content moving and release a freestyle over Rae Sremmurd’s latest hit-single “No Type”.
All These Hoes
Maino Feat. Meek Mill & Yo Gotti
Maino recently ran into some trouble when a porn star accused the rapper of assaulting her. Her accusations seemed to be true, as Maino later turned himself in to the police and was arrested for a misdemeanor assault. There haven't been any legal developments since the rapper turned himself in, but he's not letting that deter him from the music at least.
Honey Cocaine Feat. Kid Ink & Maino
Honey Cocaine is all about the gwola. We just premiered the Toronto native's new mixtape Like A Drug moments ago, and it's jam-packed with bangers and several solid features. "Gwola" is no different, it's an high-energy record with appearances from past collaborator Kid Ink and new collaborator Maino. As she said on Twitter, even though it happens to be her birthday today, she felt like giving everyone else a gift.
Maino Feat. French Montana & B.o.B
Maino, French Montana and B.o.B connect for a baller's anthem today on "Dreamer." This serves as the first single off Maino's upcoming King of Brooklyn 2 EP, which the rapper is currently prepping to drop on November 25th. Where as the first King of Brooklyn project, from February, was a mixtape, this one will be a commercial release.
Am I Wrong (Remix)
Maino Feat. Nico & Vinz
If you thought Nico & Vinz's summer smash "Am I Wrong" was in your rearview, it's time to think again. Bringing his gritty vocals to the otherwise smooth, radio-friendly hit, Maino reflects on his personal struggles, questioning if he's made the right decisions in his life. It's a short but effective verse that should have fans excited for what's to come from the emcee's upcoming King Of Brooklyn 2 project, which is due later this year.
You Ain't That Nukka
Maino continues to feed the fans with quality material. The latest in the rapper's string of well-received drops, "You Ain't That Nukka" is presumably off King Of Brooklyn 2 and/or an upcoming tape from DJ Self, who debuted the track on his official SoundCloud. Regardless, Maino handles all of the vocals on this one.
Dance Like A Stripper (Remix)
Knocka Feat. Maino, Chinx , Cristion D'or & Notch
Knocka gave us the Bay Area-channelling club anthem, "Dance Like A Stripper" at the top of the year, and while the original mix featured a guest appearance from Chinx, the remix recruits a few more NY personalities, such as Maino, Cristion D'or & Notch. All the emcees manage to make the most of the west coast-leaning production, despite hailing from the opposite side of the map.
I Ain't Missin
Doe B Feat. G-Eazy & Maino
Since Doe B's passing in December, we've heard a number of posthumous tracks that paint a promising picture of what the rest of his career could have been. Starting with the T.I.-assisted "Why," released in January, the list continues with "I Ain't Missin," a new track on which G-Eazy and Maino assist the late Hustle Gang rapper.
Uncle Murda Feat. Maino & Jay Watts
It looks like Uncle Murda isn’t slowing down anytime soon. Delivering his third song in as many weeks, Murda links up with Maino & Jay Watts for this new track called “Hands Up”. Following in the footsteps of many other artists (J. Cole, T.I., & Game to name a few), Murda & Maino take this opportunity to voice their opinion on what's happening in Ferguson, Missouri right now and its police injustice. The two Brooklyn rappers deliver heartfelt verses while Jay Watts handles the hook over the Reefa and 12 Keyz-produced instrumental.
Maino Feat. Troy Ave
It's no secret that both Maino and Troy Ave will go far, far out of their way to let you know that they're from NY, and that NY is where hip-hop was born, and they're "bringing NY back." This time around, that sentiment unmistakably manifests itself in the form of some very elaborate beat jacking. "Something Epic," the pair's new collabo, cops classic beats from Jay-Z, The Notorious B.I.G., Lil’ Kim, Fat Joe, Nas and the Wu-Tang Clan, and pits its stars against each other as they trade bars in a pretty thrilling bit of microphone acrobatics.
One Take Feat. Fred The Godson, Maino & Jim Jones
Queens rapper One Take makes his HNHH debut with the remix to his successful street single "Verrazano." The original, feature-less track, was made available in early February and has slowly gained itself a following ever since. Produced by Johnny Benjamin, the single draws influence from other the south while remaining distinctly New York--the "Verrazano" referred to being, of course, the Verrazano-Narrows bridge that connects Brooklyn and Staten Island.
I Be About It
DJ Self Feat. Maino, Vado, Big Bz & Uncle Murda
DJ Self moves on from his "Yeah OK" anthem, which received two different remixes (here's one and here's the other) to deliver his new single, "I Be About It." For this record, he recruits Maino, Vado, Big Bz and Uncle Murda, making it a strictly NYC affair.
All About You
Maino Feat. Mack Wilds
Today two New York locals connect for a reinterpretation of a Tupac track. Maino is back after dropping off "Focused" last week, with actor-turned-singer Mack Wilds by his side. "All About You" remains a chill record like the original, although the sound has been updated slightly with production by Reefa Music. Mack Wilds takes on the hook which is directly borrowed from Pac's: "no matter where I go, I see the same hoes."
Maino Feat. Vado & DJ SpinKing
Maino is so focused on the rap game he had to write a song about it. Today the self-appointed King of Brooklyn releases a new leak featuring Vado and DJ Spinking "Focused" which follows up his last effort "You Can't Touch This."
Hate Me Now (Remix)
SBOE Feat. Maino & Troy Ave
SBOE (Slow Bucks Over Everything) just signed a deal with EPIC, and they're wasting no time in releasing new music. The Queens trio has linked up with two of the hardest working New York rappers in the game right now Maino, and the recent XXL freshman Troy Ave. The rappers take on a slightly reinterpreted instrumental from Nas and Diddy's "Hate Me Now".
Torch Feat. Maino & Uncle Murda
Torch has been busy working on his new EP, Remember When, and hasn't hit us with a new track since "Milk Crates." Today the rapper remedies that, delivering a collaboration with fellow New York spitters, Maino and Uncle Murda on "Waddup." The track is available for download if you're enjoying it, and it has hard-hitting production from !llmind. It'll appear on the forthcoming EP Remember When which you should keep your eyes peeled for.
You Can't Touch This
It's not hammer time, it's Maino time. Brooklyn’s self-proclaimed King is back today with another new freestyle for the streets. Following his recent take on Snootie Wild's "Yayo" track, Maino decides to flip DMX's "Get At Me Dog" instrumental for his latest freestyle. Listen and download the new street cut below.
