Phil Ade is the next rapper up out of the DMV area. The rapper has consistently brought rhymes and wordplay with a mix of sometimes conscious rap and sometimes ignorant rap. It's a good combination which has led to a devout following of Phil Ade fans, who expect more and more from the rapper after each mixtape. Rightly so.

Big Sean is on the eve of his second pro model shoe with Adidas, following in the footsteps of fellow Detroit artist Eminem who also worked on his own shoe collection.

Noticeably less limited than the original drop, the Blackout Pro Model 2s will be avail
Summer is nearing it's end, and while the warm weather will soon subside, the season will be remembered through the tracks that soundtracked it. With plenty of huge releases, we've been pretty spoiled as far as big summer tracks go, with material from the likes of Drake, J. Cole, the Black Hippy crew and more.

Big Sean's new album Hall Of Fame officially dropped today, but Sean Don's been celebrating it. Last week in Ohio at Villa Big Sean held a block party in celebration of the album, and HotNewHipHop was on hand at the event. We also helped out a few lucky Big Sean fans by hooking them up with the VIP treatment, which included cutting the line and taking a photo with the rapper.
It’s been a long road to the top for Big Sean. Back in 2005 after hearing Kanye West was going to be at a local radio station in Detroit for an interview, Big Sean headed down there to chance fate. Two years later he signed with G.O.O.D. Music but it wasn’t until 2011 that his debut album Finally Famous would hit the shelves.
Trinidad James was one of many celeberties seen rocking the Air Jordan 3 "Legends of the Summer" and the more and more we see of it we wonder, will we ever see a release date? Trinidad James rocked them with all red jogger pants and he also left the hang tag on, typical Trinidad James.
We saw some wacky outfits last night at the VMAs, but none (well, maybe Miley Cyrus') top Riff Raff and 2 Chainz choices. Between snakeskin pants, pink shoes, and all over patterns head to toe, its hard to pick a winner for who wore it worst.Click through to see both outfits, and decide using our "cop or not" rating.
The 2013 MTV VMAs went down last night in Brooklyn, New York. As with every year, there were plenty of surprises, whether it be performance-wise, fashion-wise, or otherwise.
True to his verse on Big Sean's Control track, Kendrick Lamar showed up to the 2013 VMA's in T-shirt and Nike Cortez. And I ain't rockin no more designer shit/White T’s and Nike CortezPictured above, Kendrick broke out the Nike Cortez in Nylon Suede Grey and White, perhaps one of the least hyped up colorways of an already low key model. Is Kendrick going to bring back this original Nike model
This week we really saw the effects of Kendrick Lamar's verse on "Control" transfer over to the charts. The rapper's debut album, which officially went platinum this past week, has been slowly creeping back up the charts, something we've been seeing on Charts Don't Lie over the past weeks. Rather than jumping the usual few places this week though, K.
We got quite a few new mixtapes this week, including one really big one from Dizzy Wright, The Golden Age.

Both Swiszz Beatz and Fabolous dropped in at Rucker's Park to show off Reebok's #1 Draft Pick Question Mid.

Fans of the colorway can pick there's up online from Reebok today for $120 here.

Earlier this year, hip-hop bible XXL Magazine featured rappers A$AP Rocky and French Montana on its cover declaring New York rap is back.
