HNHH's "Underrated Audio" puts you on not-too-mainstream music you might have missed from the past week.
This feature highlights a hand-picked selection of some of the bigger tracks of the week. We have chosen a few of the tracks that landed within our top 25 most played, focusing on those that stood out, and left room for discussion.
The Jordan XX8 SE in reflect silver/total orange is scheduled to release on Christmas Eve, December 24th. The price tag is $150.The Jordan XX8 is constructed of a black upper with reflect silver Flywire. Total orange makes its way onto the laces and heel tab, and white handles the rest. The Jordan XX8 comes complete with Flywire and carbon fiber plating on the upper and speckled midsole.
The Motor City is not necessarily a mecca when it comes to hip-hop, however, it is home to several big names in rap, the first to come to mind are probably Eminem and Big Sean. More recently, Danny Brown has been stepping into the limelight outside of his city, with his album Old undoubtedly making many year-end lists and serving as Danny's lee-way to bigger and better things.
Originality is a rarity in modern hip-hop, and when an experimental album comes along, it tends to polarize listeners initially. Take Kanye West's new album Yeezus, for example. Its minimalism, raw emotion and amalgamation of genres was difficult for many diehard fans to stomach at first (not to mention the left-field visuals).
Ecentrik Artistry's Air Jordan 5 "Blue Frost" custom utilizes the Laney 5 as its base. Seeing a Laney turn into this will make some stomaches turn, but others are into the one of a kind look. Festive graphics adorn the icy blue upper which can be purchased now. Using either the Laney, or Grape as the base, the custom will run you a cool $475. Is it worth the asking price?

Well, shout out Herm Edwards for this one! You guys have been asking us to do a street fight match-up for rappers, so we came through.
Although Hannukah went down early this year, Christmas is still right around the corner. With that in mind, we've decided to help you pick out your gifts (or perhaps you'll just add something to your wishlist!) this year with a Holiday Gift Guide perfect for the hip-hop head.
The Nike KD 6 “Christmas” will release on December 26th, 2013. The red upper'd, green midsole'd Nike KD6 features a green lace lock which is something the KD model has never endorsed. Gold swooshes and KD on the heel round out the Christmas kick.
NEW YORK – The Boston Celtics demolished the New York Knicks, 114-73, behind a game-high 23 points from Jordan Crawford at Madison Square Garden on Sunday.
This week nothing major dropped in terms of hip-hop. Nonetheless, overall album sales went up by 42%. To what can we blame this spike in sales? It would be safe to say Black Friday, which is basically the commencement of the holiday season/shopping frenzy.
Underrated Audio provides you with a few joints we feel deserve an extra look or two from the last seven days. This week we give some more shine to A$AP Nast, another New Yorker who's a female by the name of Leaf, Nikko Lafre and Shlohmo. Peep those four cuts in the gallery above, and let us know what underrated piece of audio you've been digging this week.
For no particular reason other than the fact that animals are fucking cute, we present to you a photo list of rappers chilling with a variety of animals. From the most common, dogs, to baby tigers, penguins, dolphins, parrots and cats, rappers show love for all species, and they also show that no one's too cool for some one-on-one animal time.
Rich Homie Quan dominated the summer with his smash single “Type of Way.” The song made its way onto the Billboard chart and helped catapult the Atlanta rapper’s career (and bank account) into a new stratosphere.
Fat Joe is still practicing the technique of licking the soles of his deadstock sneakers. We all remember the episode of MTV Cribs where he proved his Olympic 7s were clean by licking the soles. The most recent soles Fat Joe slobbered over were the "Gamma Blue" Air jordan 11, which are a release that has everybody drooling.
LeBron James continues his quest for not only NBA dominance, but global dominance, as he's signed on Kevin Hart to co-star alongside him in a feature film called "Ballers." The movie is about two brothers, and one is an NBA star (James) while the other is frustrated with living in the shadow of his superstar sibling (Hart), but gets a chance to prove himself at a fantasy camp.
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. This week features Tyler, The Creator, Action Bronson, Chief Keef and more!
The regal looking Nike LeBron 11 "BHM" features a predominately black upper with BHM graphics on the overlays. King James' lion head logo and crowns stand out on the foamposite overlays, while other graphics make their way throughout the upper. The royal purple outsole makes the shoe, with its gold speckles that compliment the gold branding seen on the upper.
Chris Bosh gets a lot of flack for unknowingly making funny faces during photos, and generally giving off the wrong impression, but recently he was involved in something cool as Childish Gambino recorded his latest album at Bosh's house.
Ladies and gentleman, the Nike Kobe 9 Elite "Masterpiece." Mark Parker, CEO of Nike, Eric Avar, the designer, and Kobe Bryant, the Black Mamba, were all present for the official unveiling of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite. The super high-top sneaker features Nike Flyknit, Flywire, and Lunarlon.
Dikembe Mutombo has been a mainstay reference for rappers since the 90s. Usually rappers are talking about how big they are, on the block, or how their money is "long like Mutombo." The NBA legend has seen a post-playing career resurgence of late as his trademark blocking prowess followed by his signature finger waving were used in a viral GEIKO commercial.
Yesterday we kicked off our month of the Hottest of 2013 with the Most Searched Artists On HNHH. That's just the beginning though, as you can expect a lot more from us within the coming weeks, leading up to the New Year. To give you guys an idea of what to expect and to drum up some excitement, we're gunna give you a break-down of what we're dropping and when. See the full list below.
Now aged 44, Jay Z's career statistics are mind-blowing. He has released 21 albums, has 123 singles to his name, plus several business ventures, and according to Forbes last year, he is estimated to have a net worth of $500 million. He owns Roc Nation which houses some of the biggest names in music. Shawn Carter really needs no introduction.
The new Collective Bargaining Agreement is starting to make teams strongly re-consider their spending habits, and the days of hoarding top-name free agents look to be coming to an end.
To say Hopsin's third album is long overdue is like saying FEMA's response to Hurricane Katrina was slightly delayed. It's been three years since he dropped his critically acclaimed sophomore album Raw. Since then, he's toured the country extensively and landed a spot on XXL's 2013 Freshman list.
