While King Los was shooting the official
video for his HNHH Original "Born A King" we caught up with him
on the set to shoot him a few questions.
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

HNHH's Ashlee Ray questioned Ferg about...

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...

HNHH caught up with French

for a long time in New York before receiving commerical or mainstream success. In our interview, we ask him about this new-found
success. We also find out how he originally got in touch with a
Beyond being a pioneer for women in hip hop, MC Lyte is
a pioneer of hip hop, period. Her seminal
debut album Lyte as a Rock was released in 1988 during hip hop’s formative years, and included the trailblazing female diss track,
“10% Dis” directed at then rival Antoinette.
She was the first solo female hip hop artist to have a gold record, with
Last week Waka Flocka dropped his latest mixtape Salute Me

HotNewHipHop.Com was on site the day of Hot 97's Summer Jam concert, which took place this past Sunday on June 2nd. We brought the whole team down to cover the event, including the Festival Village stage, of which we were a sponsor! The Festival Village was probably just as crazy as the main event, because we had a tent set up right beside the Festival Village stage, where Action Bronson, A$AP...
