HNHH lists 15 of the best fine art references in hip-hop - not the "Top 15", simply 15 of the best.
The Nike LeBron 11 "Graffiti" will hit retailers tomorrow, with a $200 price tag. Nike has previously used graffiti style graphics in limited release fashion, on the LeBron 4 and again on the LeBron 8 V2. These highly popular kicks were difficult to get your hands on, and you can expect the same headache if you're digging the Nike LeBron 11.
If the first Starvation mixtape proved to be a metaphor for Ace Hood’s unmitigated hunger for the level of super stardom usually reserved for rappers like his friend, Lil Wayne, then Starvation 3 makes Ace Hood sound as hungry as ever, except this time around, the production values are a lot better.
Raekwon and Talib Kweli met up in Brooklyn, New York to film their upcoming video for the track they did together, "Violations." While they were filming, HotNewHipHop met up with Raekwon to pose him a question, how he thinks the internet has impacted hip- hop.
The Knicks took another devastating loss last night, at home, against the Philadelphia 76er's. Knicks fans were outraged by the time the final seconds ticked down, and booed their hometown heroes into the locker room.
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 upper is constructed of a tonal black leather, using infrared accents on the vibrant midsole, laces and branding.

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.

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.

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.

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.
