The Best Hip Hop Songs (On Spotify) Of November 2016
The Best Hip Hop Songs (On Spotify) Of November 2016 Nov 30, 2016 at 10:13am
Earlier this year, HNHH launched a Spotify playlist called FIRE EMOJI: The Hottest Hip Hop Songs Right Now.  The playlist is updated on a daily basis. It lives on Spotify and thus is inherently imperfect, because not all super-hot hip hop songs have been added to Spotify. Still, the playlist is generally representative of the best new releases in hip hop and R&B.

When Drake and Future linked up just over a year ago for What A Time To Be Alive, it was an almost earth-shattering event in hip hop, regardless of the album's quality. One was (and still is) undeniably the most popular rapper on the planet, and the other was (and probably isn't at the moment) the hottest, the guy who was just capping one of the craziest 12-month runs we've seen in this decade.

For the past few years it's been clear that regardless of quality, everything Drake announces or releases is guaranteed to produce more pageviews on HNHH than any of his contemporaries. We've known this for a while and capitalized upon it a few times, which many of you have noticed and decried, but hey, you're still clicking on it. Drizzy dropped four tracks on OVO Sound Radio last weekend and nothing has changed, despite the fact that they did arrive too late for last week's Top Tracks list.
Vote For Your Favorite Feature On Meek Mill’s “DC4”
Vote For Your Favorite Feature On Meek Mill’s “DC4” Oct 28, 2016 at 05:27pm
It's been a rocky 16+ months for Meek Mill, between a beef with Drake that partially erased Dreams Worth Than Money from public memory and legal issues that threatened to put him back in jail. The arrival of the long-anticipated DC4 carries the potential to knock aside the sideshows and return focus to Meek's music. DC4 includes a diverse array of features, and we want to know which one was your favorite:

Tory Lanez On "Litty": "I Can't Sound Like Somebody I Wrote For" Oct 28, 2016 at 04:44pm
"Litty" is one of the most explosive tracks on Meek Mill's DC4, thanks in large part to a frantic auto-tuned chorus and verse from Tory Lanez. Enough listeners drew comparisons between Lanez and Travis Scott on Twitter that Lanez felt compelled to respond. “I can’t sound like somebody I wrote for…” he wrote.
Chance The Rapper, Tory Lanez, & Rae Sremmurd Make Spotify's "25 Under 25" List
Chance The Rapper, Tory Lanez, & Rae Sremmurd Make Spotify's "25 Under 25" List Oct 27, 2016 at 10:04am
Thursday morning, Spotify released its third annual "25 Under 25" list of influential artists under the age of 25. Spotify's algorithm combines several factors, including monthly streams and the artists' presence on Spotify's charts and most popular playlists. This year, pop artist Shawn Mendes took the top spot, followed by Ariana Grande and Chance the Rapper. Here are the hip hop artists that appeared in this year's Top 25: 3. Chance the Rapper 13. Tory Lanez 17. Desiigner 23. Rae Sremmurd

Last week gave us Gucci Mane's second album of the year, Woptober, The Game's 1992, and Anderson .Paak and Knxwledge (aka NxWorries)' Yes Lawd!, and we've still got projects from D.R.A.M., Joe Budden, Common, and Jeezy dropping soon, but it feels like it's been a while since any major releases have arrived.

Barring The Weeknd's Starboy and any late-year surprises, we don't seem to have a whole lot coming on the release calendar as fall settles in. Gucci Mane's Woptober, Anderson .Paak and Knxledge's Yes Lawd! under their Nxworries title, and D.R.A.M.'s debut album Big Baby D.R.A.M. are all coming later this month, but compared to the summer we just had, that's small potatoes.

Drake may have had to postpone some shows due to an ankle injury, but he was charged up as ever during his Friday concert in Toronto, or as he would call it, the 6. The crowd was as responsive as you'd expect to his Summer Sixteen Tour, which is nearly over, and he was clearly feeding off the energy when he decided to send out a message to his competition.
19 Rappers Rapping Before The Fame
19 Rappers Rapping Before The Fame Oct 7, 2016 at 05:32pm
YouTube is perhaps most useful as a historical archive. When it comes to hip hop, the site is a veritable treasure trove of videos of rappers as they were before the fame, back when their music video budgets hovered in the single digits. These clips are not pretty, but grainier is almost better -- intense pixellation gives these videos the character of artifacts rather than modern footage, even if they are only a few years old.

Abel Tesfaye, AKA The Weeknd, has had one of the most unexpected career paths of any R&B artist in the new millennium. Basically paving the way for every ensuing singer/rapper who's warranted the "mysterious" tag when first emerging, his early tracks paired The-Dream's Lothario musings with an indie-influenced, lo-fi sound, and druggy themes. After major label move Kiss Land flopped commercially and critically, he went back to the drawing board and returned with a pop sheen courtesy of superproducer Max Martin.
Meek Mill Previews Tory Lanez Collab Off "DC4"
Meek Mill Previews Tory Lanez Collab Off "DC4" Oct 1, 2016 at 10:29pm
Meek Mill has been more than generous with the Dreamchasers 4 snippets -- to the point of excess. But the latest one is of particular interest, as it features Tory Lanez. Both artists have an enemy in common. Drake's beef with Tory hasn't ever risen to the same stakes as the highly scrutinized contest involving him and Meek Mill, but it's become obvious there's no love lost between the two singing rappers from The 6.

Minneapolis-bred rapper Rocky Diamonds has released two songs this year, both well-received on the site. The latest was June's "Come Down," produced by TM88, which held fans over through the lengthy wait for his EP, Anywhere But Here. It's finally here, packed with six tracks and no features.

Summer is fast turning to autumn, vacation to school. Soon, the sun's oppressive reign will end and give way to increasingly temperate conditions. With August in the books, we look back at ten of the most notable hip hop and R&B albums and mixtapes of the month and ask our readers to decide which one they believe is the best. Pour one out for Noname's Telefone, which came out on July 31. Here are the ten:

Drake was holding down the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 for months, but this past month we've seen VIEWS fluctuate in place of different #1 albums. DJ Khaled, Suicide Squad, and now Frank Ocean have all had a taste of the top spot in the late-summer blitz of new releases. Ocean, who's long-awaited follow-up to Channel Orange came out last week, was sold exclusively on Apple Music, and did just shy of a quarter million units on there.
