"Origins" offers a break down of the samples in each track featured on Big Sean's "Hall Of Fame"
We see two new entries when it comes to hip-hop on Charts Don't Lie this week. They belong to Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt and A$AP Mob's A$AP Ferg. While both rappers moved respectable amounts, it gives us a moment to think about the whole ideas of crews in hip-hop, and how no matter what, there is always one rap leader who has to make an impression on the audience first.
Chris Bosh gets caught in more corky and unflattering moments than any other player in the NBA. This has resulted in the Miami Heat power forward becoming one of the most "memed" players in the league. Jokes about being a mascot as well as an ostrich and dinosaur have followed Bosh from Toronto to Miami. B
The year of the Jordan 5 will be continuing this Saturday when the "Fire Red" colorway seen above will be hitting store shelves. This colorway is very similar to the white, red, and black Jordan 5 released earlier in the year but differences will include a black tongue and a stitched 23 on the side.
After a number of impressive leaks, Dizzy Wright, drops his highly anticipated mixtape, The Golden Age. This is the Sin City representative's fifth street album in total, the tape is the follow-up to the free version of SmokeOut Conversations, which was released in June 2012, and comes on the heels of last December's Booth-hosted The First Agreement EP.
The hip hop culture has a very heavy impact on the fashion culture in today's world and one huge market where the two collide is sneakers. Rappers are getting huge sneaker deals and collaboration opportunities from major sneaker brands.
Photos have emerged of what looks to be the Doernbecher Jordan Retro release for 2013.
Violence and the NBA have an unfortunately lengthy history of intertwinement. On-court attacks have been stymied by League-wide crackdowns - after incidents like Kermit Washington nearly killing Rudy Tomjanovich, and the Pacers nearly destroying the Palace of Auburn Hills - but away from games, players still often find themselves on both sides of bizarre conflicts.
There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific bars are often overlooked. This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.

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.
Nike announced today a never before seen colorway of Lebron James signature shoe, the Lebron 11. Dubbed the "Terracotta Warrior" this shoe will see a limited release in Asia in October, before releasing in the United States on November 27th. The shoe is named for the Terracotta Warrior exhibition James visited while in China, and features "neutral stone colors" that correspond with the colors t
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. These all black renditions of his personal model are the sequel to the original release, which featured a bright red upper and plenty of gold. 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.
The Lightning Jordan 4, previously pulled from a rumored March release, has been tentatively confirmed to release November 16th, 2013. Originally releasing in 2006 as part of a package including a T-Shirt, original retail was $250.
Although fashion has always been a part of hip-hop culture, it's been taken to a new level in recent years thanks to artists such as A$AP Rocky, Kanye West, Pharrell, 2 Chainz and Danny Brown. Love it or hate it, more and more of your favorite emcees are becoming acutely fashion conscious, both in and outside the genre.
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.
