HNHH's "Underrated Audio" puts you on not-too-mainstream music you might have missed from the past week.
Part of the rapper lifestyle means lots of travelling, lots of fans and/or groupies, and hardly any time to settle down and wife up. Thus it may not come as a surprise that rapper seeds often get sprinkled across the states, and often times, they've got multiple baby mamas.
The Air Jordan 1 Mid "Infrared 23" is the latest in the growingly line of infrared inspired Air Jordans. The upper is constructed of a tonal black leather, using infrared accents on the vibrant midsole, laces and branding. A release date has not been announced but these should be a popular pick-up when they drop.
Hip-hop artists stunt exceptionally well at the best of times. Whether it’s dope performances, providing quality albums, or being trendsetters, there’s always a lot to be celebrated within rap music.
Martin Luther King Jr. really needs no introduction at all, however, we will attempt to do the civil rights leader justice in our brief description.
2013 was undoubtedly a great year for rap music. If you are a die-hard hip-hop head, you are probably praying that 2014 will continue along the same lines, if not one-up 2013. Now that we're examining some of the releases lined up for this year, the chances look good.
Fuda Customs "Knicks" Air Jordan 4 rendition features all the familiar colors New Yorker's know and love. The base sneaker was the "Military Blue" Air Jordan 4, which gets treated with an orange upper. Knicks logos are stamped on the ankle collar, with hits of blue and white setting everything off.
This week we welcome a new entry on Charts Don't Lie, Kid Ink. Kid Ink is a prime example of a rapper who took his internet fame way past the internet. The Alumni rapper is now signed to a major label, and was able to successfully release his debut album My Own Lane-- he actually surpassed the sales projections of 40-45k.
Underrated Audio aims to bring to your attention several tracks from the last seven days that were overlooked. Each week we choose a few cuts that we think deserve a little more love from our viewers, and this week we've rounded up Chuck Inglish's latest single, a choice cut from Ricky Hil, rising rapper G-Eazy and more.
It’s hard out there for the life of a rappers wife or that ride-or-die chick. Once you beat out the competition; the gold diggers, video vixens and schemers, and officially accept the title, your public image changes, usually for the worse.
Graffiti is obviously a staple to the hip-hop culture, but artwork in general is just as important. While some rappers prefer a badly photo-shopped cover for their mixtape, we do have instances of dope artwork being used by rappers for album and mixtape covers, and that makes the project that much more engaging.
The Air Jordan 6 "Carmine" is one of the most popular Jordans of all time and it will be retro'd, yet again, in 2014. The beloved Carmines originally dropped in 1991, and were last seen in 2008 as part of a Collezione Pack.
Beyonce & Jay Z Share Photos From New Year's Eve & Blue Ivy's 2nd Birthday Jan 16, 2014 at 06:05 PM 41,355 Views
Beyonce and Jay Z like to keep their personal life under tight wraps, so whenever we get a glimpse at what the power couple has been up too, we usually take it.
13 years ago, Aaliyah was tragically killed in a plane crash at the tender age of 22 when returning from the Bahamas after shooting the video for “Rock The Boat.” Her death deeply affected her fans and the hip-hop community at large.
2013 saw many breakout stars. From Chance The Rapper, to Jhene Aiko, to Rich Homie Quan, it was more difficult than ever to predict who would rise to fame at any given moment. 2014 will likely be no different, but we've organized a few artists who could very well have big breaks this year. Some are more visible than others, but all of them have the potential to make a splash in the rap game.
Twizz Customs is the mastermind behind the Nike LeBron X "Ghostbuster." The unique custom features all things Ghostbuster, including; a khaki upper reminiscent of the Ghostbuster uniform, a caution taped Nike swoosh, Slimer's green remains strewn throughout, and a Ghostbuster logo at the ankle collar. What's the verdict; Cop or Not?
Kid Ink may have suddenly rose to popularity with the 2012 catchy hit “Time of Your Life” but the California rapper has been at it longer than that. Releasing his first mixtape in 2010, Kid Ink, real name Brian Collins, gained a slew of fans with his laid-back style and blend of singing and rapping.
There aren't very many changes in this week's Charts Don't Lie compared to last week. The main list of artists has remained the same, as we have yet to receive any new rap or r'n'b debuts on the Billboard 200, although Kid Ink's debut album My Own Lane will begin charting in the near future. Ink's RCA album is projected to move a solid 40-45k, which will land him within the top 3.
We're offering you a chance to grab the records that flew under the radar these last seven days with the weekly Underrated Audio. We scope out the records that received less views than they deserved, and give them a few more looks here. This week we round up tracks from rising rapper Da$h, Cleveland/LA native King Chip, a newcomer Nile Ross and more.
Record labels, Ciroc, "Revolt" internet channel, Diddy is making money hand over fist. That includes hustling dice games in Taxi Jordan 12s. Diddy posted this shot on Instagram after apparently winning a game of dice. #kicksoftheDay! So Harlem! Celo BIG BANK Take lil bank
The "Toro" Air Jordan 6 is scheduled to release on February 15th, the same day as the "White/Infrared" 6. 2014 marks the 23rd anniversary of the Air Jordan 6, so its reasonable to believe there will be a ton of Air Jordan 6releases.
There are plenty of rap magazines that have gone and went through out hip-hop's 40 years, but there are also several mainstays in the culture. Magazines like Rap Sheet and The Source were some of the first to ever do it, starting out as simple newsletters and developing into something much more. While the former has been defunct, The Source (which launched in 1988) is still kickin'.
The inspiration rappers have drawn from comic book characters over the years is undeniable, whether it be superheroes, villains or relatively normal protagonists who happen to find themselves in extraordinary circumstances.
The Air Jordan "Olympic Pack" features the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 6. Both sneakers feature removable flag decals and USA colorways. Included in the pack, wooden shoe trees, white Olympic dust bags, a USA Olympic Basketball themed Nike Destroyer jacket, and a hat bearing the flag.
Dissecting the foibles of the hip hop community as expressed in under 140 characters on Twitter. Not just used as a device to flood people's timelines with your new track, album, video, or clothing line, sometimes rappers truly channel the unfiltered interaction with fans.
