HNHH brings you coverage from the 20th anniversary Summer Jam concert, which saw the likes of Joe Budden, Miguel, Wale, Chris Brown, Fabolous, Wu-Tang Clan, 2 Chainz, A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar, and French Montana-- and that's without naming the surprise guests.
The Festival Village this past weekend at the annual HOT 97 Summer Jam saw performances from a bunch of upcoming New York rappers, among them, Troy Ave. Troy Ave and his BSB crew have been working hard recently, having dropped two collaborative efforts since March. The drug (and specifically coke) talk will continue on Troy's upcoming release named after his city, New York City.
This weekend we visited New Jersey to catch the Summer Jam music festival. Along the way we spotted some serious heat on feet. Click through to see our favorite kicks at this year's Summer Jam!
Smoke DZA performed at the HNHH-sponsored Festival Village stage this weekend for the 20th annual Summer Jam. On top of fulfilling his dreams of performing at the festival, he joined HNHH's own Ashlee Ray backstage to hang out and answer a few questions.
The Lebron X "Corks" took on a life of their own earlier this year and now has become one of the most sought after versions of the silhouette. It was a new inspiration of the X designed more towards lifestyle fashion rather that on court performance. This casual wear style of the Lebron line looks to be back this summer with a couple new colorways with unique materials. Here we get to view t
HotNewHipHop had the pleasure of sponsoring the Festival Village stage at Summer Jam this year, which featured up-and-coming artists such as A$AP Ferg, Joey Bada$$, Troy Ave, and more. Action Bronson earned a well-deserved headlining spot at the stage, and on top of delivering a memorable performance, he stopped by the HNHH tent to meet some fans and sign some autographs.

The power forward position has become increasingly versatile in recent years. Typically a position for bruising board-crashers, fours are now more apt to step out and knock down midrange and three point shots. When looking at the impact of big forwards around the league many of them affect the game in varying ways.
French Montana joins Charts Don't Lie this week, with his debut album Excuse My French. French, Diddy and the whole Bad Boy team went hard with promo for this one, rounded up the biggest features in the game, but the album wasn't able to move more than 50k opening week.
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, Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka and more!
There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked. This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.
Slam dunks are without a doubt one of the most entertaining aspects of the game of basketball. At one point or another, whether on a Nerf hoop in our bedroom, or a lowered backyard rim, or purely in our imagination, every basketball fan has pictured themselves on the court for the Dunk Contest. The combination of grace, power, and sheer athleticism this feat requires is a main selling point fo
Check out the homie Mr. Foamer Simpson with the first "What the MVP" video Review.
The cross-section of hip hop and basketball culture is a large one with both influencing each other’s style, and stars of each hailing from the same regions. In 2004, Jay-Z bought into the Nets for $350,000, which was only valued at roughly 0.15% of the franchise. Although not a large investor, Jigga became the sideline face of the franchise, and was involved in moving the team from the Mead
It appears that Jordan Brand will be releasing a "Fear Pack" as images of a Jordan III, IV, and V model surfaced. While the III's are rumored to be photoshopped, both the IV and V models appear to be releasing towards the end of the year. The "Oreo" colorscheme adorns all three pairs in the collection, making the pack say more "Midnight Snack" than something to be fearful of.
French Montana celebrated his album release for Excuse My French at King of Diamonds on May 24th, the mecca of all strip clubs. The following night the partying continued when Young Jeezy hit up KOD with his crew. Peep photos of both nights from NLPG Images. Thanks to Echo Hattix & Moses Hill!
This week's Underrated Audio will put you on to five cuts from rising artists all of sorts.
High flying dunks and vicious facials all result in some very sick highlights. Though every team around the league has players that are capable and do produce highlight worthy plays night in and night out, there are some teams that are just a little better. All of the teams on this list produced jaw-dropping alley-oops last season and last second game winners.
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.
Setting off the KD VI model in style, early photos of the "Meteorology" colorway have surfaced. Though by no means a throwback to the "Weatherman" colorway sported by the KD IV model, this new colorway features great detail.
There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked (with the exception of Yeezus' scriptures). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.
Having a skilled shooting guard on your team can help properly space the floor and drive the offense. From deadly spot up shooters, to lethal slashers, the league is full of players that can flat out score at will. The best two guards can shoot the lights out from any spot on the floor and get to the hoop when their team needs it.

For now, rap releases have slowed down, but new ones are on the way. The month of June promises to be one full of album drops-- which all fall under a few different dates. The biggest date by far, is, of course, June 18th. The date which 'Ye tweeted a month ago is (unsurprisingly?) turning out to be a huge one in terms of hip-hop.
