Who's Going On Tour? Spring/Summer Tour Round-Up
Who's Going On Tour? Spring/Summer Tour Round-Up May 4, 2016 at 04:13pm
A lot of big artists are going on tour this spring and summer. You have mega-stars like Beyonce, Rihanna, and Drake. You have rising stars Anderson .Paak and Bas. You have established vets like Snoop Dogg, Maxwell, and Cam'Ron. And everybody in between. It looks like some legendary tours are going down towards the end of the calendar year. Gucci Mane & Friends tour is scheduled to go down when La Flare gets released from prison in September and Kanye West is also shooting to kick off his The Life of Pablo tour in September as well.

Is it just me, or have the past few weeks felt like the calm before the storm? After all of the TLOP hubbub died down (this is the first week in a long time that we haven't had a Kanye solo joint in our top ten list), we've had quite a lack of releases from rap's upper echelon. Teasers, singles, and release date announcements seem to keep flooding in, but this Friday, when A$AP Ferg releases Always Strive And Prosper, things will really get cooking.

Tory Lanez Declines XXL Freshman Cover Spot Apr 15, 2016 at 06:29pm
There is much buzz about the rap world regarding the 10 rappers who will appear on this year's XXL Freshman cover. The HNHH staff recently shared its opinions on those most deserving of the honor and put forth a list that includes talents like G Herbo, Jazz Cartier, and Tory Lanez, the latter whom it seems has been a contender for a few years now.
HNHH's Picks For The 2016 XXL Freshman List
HNHH's Picks For The 2016 XXL Freshman List Apr 14, 2016 at 06:23pm
We, the editors of HNHH, put our heads together this afternoon and picked the 10 artists we deemed most deserving of the 2016 XXL Freshman cover. Tough choices were made. Digital fists of fury were thrown on the HNHH editor email thread. But we feel good about our list. Our list is rock fucking solid. NOTE: according to the official bylaws of XXL, any artist who has released an album on a major label is ineligible for the Freshman cover. Hence, we did not include Bryson Tiller on our list.
10 Photos Of Rappers With Their Pets
10 Photos Of Rappers With Their Pets Apr 11, 2016 at 05:18pm
Fame and exotic pets go hand-in-hand. Just ask King George I, who ruled England in the early 18th century, who kept a pet human. Rappers are no different. While many rappers like to keep it down-to-earth w dogs, some prefer to ball out and domesticate animals you've never even heard of like endangered saber-toothed manta rays.

On last week's edition of Top Tracks, Drake locked down the highest two spots with new leaks, and appeared once more as a guest on PartyNextDoor's "Come And See Me," which landed at number eight. If you thought that was impressive, wait til you see this week's. The 6 God controls half of this week's list, despite the fact that all versions that appear on here are unofficial leaks.

With festival season approaching, hip hop heads should consider traveling to Pemberton Music Festival in British Columbia, Canada this year. Pemberton just announced the full 2016 lineup and it looks very promising. Snoop Dogg, J. Cole, Wiz Khalifa, and Ice Cube are all headliners.  Also of interest for hip hop enthusiasts: Tyler, the Creator, Tory Lanez, Anderson .Paak, Method Man and Redman, Rae Sremmurd, Joey Bada$$, Miguel, SZA, Mac Miller, Cypress Hill, FKA twigs, Dizzy Wright, Hudson Mohwake, & Pell.

A$AP Ferg & Tory Lanez Announce "The Level Up Tour" Apr 1, 2016 at 12:40pm
A$AP Ferg and Tory Lanez are going on tour. Ferg and Lanez will co-headline the "Level Up" tour, a 25-city trek that kicks off May 18 in Philadelphia and wraps up on June 24 in Boston. They spent at least one night at SXSW making music at Lanez' mansion in the countryside, and it sounds like they have a special joint set figured out.

Last week was definitely dominated by SXSW, with most of the rap world seeming like they were down in Austin either to perform, kick it with some of their equals in the game, or announce mixtapes in creative ways.

March 15 & March 16 We're taking on SXSW literally as I type this. As I type this, I'm sitting in a studio in Austin suburbia, where we expect to create some fire emoji collaborations with everyone from Nessly to Audio Push to Skeme to Allan Kingdom and more. However let's rewind a couple of days, and run through everything we've seen and done in our two days since landing in the Lone Star state.
Tory Lanez & Jacquees Have Squashed Their Beef
Tory Lanez & Jacquees Have Squashed Their Beef Mar 19, 2016 at 02:53pm
South By Southwest can really do everything. In addition to providing dope performances for fans, it can also be a means for reconciliation. Back in late February, Tory Lanez and Jacquees fell into a brief Twitter beef that was started when Tory Lanez responded flippantly to a post from the new Cash Money signee.

After the excitement of new projects from Kevin Gates, Future, Young Thug, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, French Montana, and Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz, we seem to have hit a bit of a lull three months into 2016. Views From The 6 is (hopefully) in sight for April, and A$AP Ferg and ILoveMakonnen both should have new material out in the next few weeks, but March is definitely looking like a down month for hip hop's upper echelon.

We got an extra day of February this year, and while there aren't quite as many brand new tracks on that week's top ten list as the one that preceded it, we still got over 50% turnover.

Other than some resurfacing beefs (between Young Thug and The Game, and Rick Ross and Birdman, respectively) and the beginning of what is sure to be another drawn-out, highly-publicized Kanye West album rollout, it was a relatively quiet week, especially as far as full-length releases went.
Staff Picks Playlist (February 26)

The week is almost over, and with that, comes our Staff Picks playlist. This past week wasn't so heavy on the mixtapes/albums (although French Montana did make a splash with Wave Gods), as it was on the songs/news. Perhaps more so on the news, but the end of the week still proved fruitful with a Cash Money reunion of sorts, a big ASAP Mob remix, a Tory Lanez flip, a new single from Baauer and more. As we approach the month of March, we're preparing ourselves not only for a shift in weather but a shift in music.
Jacquees Challenges R&B Competition, Tory Lanez Responds
Jacquees Challenges R&B Competition, Tory Lanez Responds Feb 26, 2016 at 01:49pm
Drake may have taken shots at Tory Lanez on his only single of the year, "Summer Sixteen," though during All-Star weekend in Toronto, Lanez denied any bad blood toward his fellow Canadian. Lanez now finds himself in another potential conflict, though with an unexpected artist: Atlanta R&B singer Jacquees, who has emerged as Birdman's latest protégé.
