    The other week, Harlem spitter and Mass Appeal signee Dave East announced a new mixtape in the works. The project, titled Hate Me Now, was led by the leak "Demons." The mixtape touted a feature from bossman Nas, and today Dave East has decided to let us hear the collaboration. It definitely channels old school New York vibes, as Dave imagines the millions he'll be making (but with Nas no imagination is required).
  • Do What I Do
    Do What I Do
    After sharing Deeply Rooted lead single "God" a couple weeks ago, Houston legend Scarface returns with another gem in "Do What I Do." Scarface is still a problem on the mic, and he ratchets things up to the next level by bringing in Nas and Rick Ross for a verse a piece and fellow Houston veteran Z-Ro for the chorus.
  • If I Ruled The World Freestyle
    If I Ruled The World Freestyle
    The great thing about freestyles on well-known beats as that they level the playing field, control for beat quality, and provide a way to more accurately measure rappers against one another.
  • The World Is Yours (Freestyle)
    The World Is Yours (Freestyle)
    Fabolous  rapped on a Nas beat last week for his #FridayNightFreestyles series and he's back at it again this week with Illmatic's "The World Is Yours," perhaps the best Nas beat of all time. 
  • God It
    God It
    Last month, veteran rap trio De La Soul announced that they were starting a Kickstarter to fund their new album. Now, they say they're "busy at work," but they took a break to share a track that won't show up on the upcoming project. This one's called "God It," and it features none other than Nas. 
  • Last Words (Freestyle)
    Last Words (Freestyle)
    For his latest freestyle, Dave East chose to go in over a Nastradamus highlight. Over Esco's "Last Words," Dave gives the classic track a dope update (pun intended, as he raps quite a bit about dope fiends on the track). His bars tell the harrowing story of a crack addict who forsakes her daughter in favor of the pipe-- East's storytelling skills are on-point. Quotable Lyrics
  • Something To Believe In
    Something To Believe In
    Fashawn is set to release his long-anticipated sophomore album next week, and after dropping off a brand new record on Monday, he returns once again with the stacked "Something to Believe In". Over a hard loop from the legendary DJ Khalil, Fashawn is joined by both Aloe Blacc, as well as one of the most respected emcees in hip hop history -- Nas.
  • Veni Vidi Vici
    Veni Vidi Vici
    When Madonna revealed the official tracklist for her new album Rebel Heart, we saw that is was heavy with the rap features (actually, the only features she had were rap artists).
  • Focused On You
    Focused On You
    It was only a matter of time before 2 Chainz referenced one of his "Most Expensivest Shit" feats in a verse. The GQ webseries, which features Tity Boi trying out some of the priciest gear in the world, seemed primed for mid-song references to the ATL rapper's love for life's finer things, and now it' happened. On Eric Bellinger's new track "Focused On You," Chainz mentions the episode in which he ate the world's most extravagant burger: "I just ate a 300 dollar hamburger."
  • The Season (Remix)
    The Season (Remix)
    J Dilla's "Gobstopper" beat has been sitting around for years, with a few enterprising individuals dropping bars over it in years past, but now that Nas copped the instrumental for his new track "The Season," you can bet that he'll inspire new takes on the 2006 track. Fittingly enough, it's AZ, Nas' old collaborator, who steps up to remix it first.
  • The Season
    The Season
    We knew this was coming. After previewing the new, J Dilla-produced joint "The Season" at a Run The Jewels album release event in Brooklyn last night, God's Son drops the official version on his Audiomack account.
  • In The Scrolls
    In The Scrolls
    Critically-acclaimed producer Large Professor is back on HNHH with a brand new track released in tribute of Nas' birthday. Titled "In The Scrolls," the track finds Professor spinning that "Illmatic shit," complete with scratches and soul samples. In other words, it's everything an early 90s hip-hop head could ask for.
  • Studio (Remix)
    Studio (Remix)
    Yesterday we posted our new interview with ScHoolboy Q (which you can watch below if you missed it), where the rapper reveals that he's already begun to work on his follow up to Oxymoron, and he warns HNHH users not to expect any new 'VERY HOTTTTT' music from him for a minute. A day later, Q pops up with that VERY HOTTTTT remix of his vibing "Studio" record with BJ The Chicago Kid.
  • Free Turkey
    Free Turkey
    Other than the Shmoney Dance, the other thing that the hip-hop Twittersphere has been abuzz with in the past month is a rapper named Your Old Droog. With a name that references A Clockwork Orange and a voice and delivery that sound uncannily like Nas, Droog set the internet ablaze a few weeks ago when someone hypothesized that he was the Nasty one in disguise. 
  • We Dem Boyz Part 2
    We Dem Boyz Part 2
    Wiz Khalifa already released an alternate version of "We Dem Boyz" that featured Meek Mill, Puff Daddy and French Montana, but now he returns with an actual remix of the track that features Nas, Schoolboy Q and Rick Ross. The new beat is composed by Sledgren, RMB Justize, and Ricky P, and is substantially chiller than the original's. Rozay kicks the guest appearances off, and is followed by Schoolboy and then Nas. 
  • Troubeaux
    Jennifer Lopez has been riding the success of her latest single “I Luh Ya Papi”, for some time now. With multiple remixes out, it’s time J. Lo gives fans a new song to get down to. Luckily for them, a new song titled "Troubeaux" has found its way onto the internet today and it happens to feature a hot new verse from Nas.
  • Hustle
    Rocko surprised fans today with a new mixtape, Poet, which is dedicated to Maya Angelou who passed away yesterday. Angelou's death, at the age of 86, had rappers tweeting all day, but Rocko decided to step things up with a selection of socially conscious records. Apparently the music has been in the works for a few months, but with Angelou's passing Rocko decided it was the right time to drop it.
  • Dedicated
    90s hip-hop fans unite! After announcing the track list for her new album Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse earlier this month, Mariah began a storm of anticipation for her new record "Dedicated" with Mr. Nasir Jones. Now the record is available in full form for your listening pleasure.

    The World Is Yours (Freestyle)
    Meyhem Lauren was originally slated to appear on the #Illmatic20 tribute tape, but apparently missed the deadline for the project. So now Lauren has decided to hop on a cut from the iconic debut for kicks, taking on classic single, "The World Is Yours". NahRight's eskay, who put together the comp, explained; "he went ahead and hopped on “The World Is Yours” instrumental for us anyway, ’cause he’s a G like that."
  • Halftime
    To mark the 20th anniversary of Nas' Illmatic, a group of younger NYC rappers all hopped on The #Illmatic20 Tribute Mixtape today and took turns repurposing the album's tracks. One of the sure highlights is Smoke DZA's version of "Halftime."
