MMG is undeniably one of the strongest teams in the
rap game right now, especially after a summer of dominance, and now with all
eyes on Meek Mill’s Dreams & Nightmares dropping at the end of the
month. One of the signings that has gone
relatively unnoticed is the addition of R&B veteran, and one time B2K
member, Omarion. The singer, actor, and
all around entertainer...
Stalley has his music style and sound
down pat, and he is now expanding his repertoire to include clothing
design. The bearded rapper launched his line, named after his

HNHH had a chance to sit down with an introspective Budden,
who talked about the difference between working solo, and being with his Slaughterhouse brethren. He discussed his

With Christmas arriving tomorrow, we decided it was only appropriate to make our recent interview with Kid Ink Christmas-themed. Ink will no doubt be busy this holiday prepping the release of his debut album My Own Lane for the New Year (January 7th, to be exact), but nonetheless, even rappers have time to celebrate Christmas.
Ink tells us all about his best and worst Xmas gifts, as well as the...

Boldy James is not your average drug-talking and dealing rapper. It shows in his musical output, from his above par beat selection, to his descriptive and almost eloquent rhymes, Boldy is far from average. The Detroit player first surfaced on the rap scene with his very dope and album-quality mixtape, Trapper's Alley: Pro's & Con's and while he's had a slow rise, he's definitely built a solid...

Hip hop’s love for all things green, both money and weed, is
well documented. On tour artists are
faced with a constant grind of travelling, and also the grind of filling up their
spare time while in various, sometimes seemingly random, cities. HNHH caught up with A$AP Rocky for an
exclusive interview while on his “LongLiveA$AP" tour, and the A$AP Mob member
was open about...

Los' upcoming mixtape, Becoming
King, is set to drop November 29th, and has a slew of
features including Wiz Khalifa, Diddy, Machine Gun Kelly etc. So we wanted to know
who he wanted to have featured that doesn't make an appearance. Los
T.I. may be heralded as “The King of the South”,
but he did not reach those heights on his own.
One of his partners coming up was his boy Big Kuntry King, who was close
with Tip even back when the two were slanging tapes out of their trunks on the
streets. King has been in the game for
years, and after dropping his first studio solo effort My Turn To Eat, he’s
Drumma Boy is constantly on his grind. Whether he's trying his hand at rapping, or doing what he's known best for, producing, he's putting in work. HNHH was able to catch up with him over the phone to find out what he has in the works and what artists he's currently collaborating with. Read below to find out how Drumma Boy developed into the producer he is today, from selling bass...
