HNHH takes a look at the top 15 albums dropped over the past 12 months.
Although 2012 has been an amazing year for rap music in general, there are several projects that didn't contribute to this collective greatness as much as they should have. There are several more that were simply not good in the first place.To say some of these works were disappointing is not to say they were full-on bad. Indeed a couple of the listed projects were actually quite good.
Things have changed since the days of Yo! MTV Raps. As professional camera gear becomes cheaper and more accessible, and with the free marketing potential of YouTube, more and more artists are producing quality music videos. They don’t necessarily need a budget of millions or major label support to put out dope visuals anymore.
Welcome to this year’s Sexiest Videos countdown. This year had so much booty shaking, bottle popping and ass clapping that I think it might have become an epidemic. Hey, as long as it’s a hottie epidemic and not zombies, it’s cool with us. With a little mix of R n’ B, club bangers and some femcee action, this list has a little bit of everything for everyone.
It was hard sifting through albums and debating on what actually categorized as R&B.With artists crossing genres constantly or including more than one in their album, it's hard to truly define their sound. Some were more obvious than others but after much discussion, HNHH has brought you what we think are the Ten Best R&B Albums of 2012.
The past year was another intriguing one for hip-hop with several albums vying for best of the year along with a few that were expected to be great but fell short. The year also brought us a whole host of collaborative efforts from crews, to quartets, to surprising duos that took listeners by surprise.
With the relentless expansion of the Internet and the rise of social media, mass exposure is accessible to more artists than ever before, for better or worse. Each new year gives rise to new artists, as well as older artists attempting to reinvent themselves in the digital age. Of this ever-growing yield there are artists that stand out,

In a career that spans two decades, eleven solo studio albums, a number of chart hits, and years of financial success, Jay-Z is definitely one of the greatest of all time. He now co-owns a NBA team in his native Brooklyn, he has altered the hip hop landscape numerous times, and as other artists have faded away, he has consistently been relevant, both culturally and musically.
At the beginning of November we did a list that comprised of 9 Creative Rappers You Should Know About. Today we're following up that list with 7 Creative Producers You Should Know About.

Game has been in the news lately talking about a future full-length collaboration with Chris Brown, beef with 50 Cent and has had Shyne dissing him on a track, but today, HNHH takes a moment to wish him Happy Birthday.
Having released five albums to date, Trey Songz is extremely popular due to his radio-friendly hits and his ability to capture the entire male genders emotions on songs. Most of Trigga's hits are songs that showcase his lyrical ability to grasp the emotional ties between a guy and his girl. Not to mention, he makes some great songs to dance to at the club.
Big Sean is constantly repping his hometown of Detroit, whether it's in his music or in his fashion. He has teamed up with adidas Originals to take it a step further, by designing a shoe which is dedicated to the D, called the "Detroit Player."The sneaker is an adidas Pro Model II and it is entirely red with gold accents, as well as snakeskin and suede accents on the shoe.

The "feud" between 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather a couple weeks back got us thinking about the long-standing love affair between rappers and boxers. Both require a tremendous amount of skill, and both camps have made sincere, desperate, and hilarious attempts at paying homage to one another.
