A look at the funniest, most entertaining, and outrageous tweets from some of the biggest names in hip hop.
Two years ago, Jay-Z and Kanye West joined forces and crowned themselves the kings of rap. After an extensive worldwide Watch The Throne tour, the two went back to their separate careers to work on solo projects. Although they both welcomed a brand new baby in the last year and a half, they couldn’t be in more different places musically.
Following Dwight Howard’s “Dwightmare” this year was tiresome, and fairly annoying, but it was nothing compared to LeBron James’ decision of where to “take his talents” in the summer of 2010. As you’ll recall, it all ended with a nationally televised special, “The Decision.” A program in which LeBron James was interviewed by Jim Gray at a Boy and Girls Club surrounded by kids
In February of 2012, Pro Era’s Joey Bada$$ and Capital STEEZ dropped the visuals for their collaboration “Survival Tactics,” which quickly went viral. Crowned the future of New York rap, Bada$$ served the perfect blend of youthful, braggadocio-tinged rhymes, and laid-back flows-- not to mention an ear for classic 90s-referencing production that would make Gangstarr proud.
WILD 'N OUT is known for pitting rappers and comedians against one another in a series of competitions. To celebrate the show returning for its fifth season, HNHH has compiled a list of artists we'd like to see go head to head in freestyle battles. We've pitted J. Cole against Drake, Kanye against Ray J, DJ Khaled against Kevin Hart and more in this freestyle faceoff!
This week on Charts Don't Lie we have one new entry, and that's Wale with The Gifted. Wale is an interesting rapper to consider, because there's no denying people love to hate on him. We saw this with the resurgence of old tweets from rappers-- one thing they seemed to all have in common was their strong dislike from Mr. Folarin.
Ty Dolla $ign delivered his Beach House 2 mixtape just in time for summer. At first glance, the tape's tracklist looks iffy. There's at least one guest appearance on each song, something which is often frowned upon by devout fans and critics. However, flooding a project with features has been done successfully before, as was the case with The Game's 2012 album Jesus Piece.
Take note, aspiring rappers - if you create a single that's both catchy and infectious enough to catch the ear of the mainstream, you could be thrust into the limelight sooner than you think (establishing connections doesn't hurt, either).
With the 4th of July having happened this past week, and people still celebrating this weekend, the blogging has been toned down the past few days. However, at the beginning of the week, we saw notable mixtape releases from Ty Dolla $ign, PartyNextDoor and Joey Bada$$.
There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked (with the exception of Jay-Z's recent "leaks"). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.
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, 50 Cent, Lil B and more!
The latest signature shoes for Derrick Rose, the adidas D Rose 3.5, got a new high end colorway, as designer Jeremy Scott designed sneakers with “the coolest cherubs in the world.” Peep the gallery above to check them out. “I really wanted to meld my world and Derrick’s world,” said Jeremy Scott.
HNHH Awards: Trinidad James, Jeremih, Yo Gotti, Problem & More Choose "Rapper Most Likely to Be..." Jul 4, 2013 at 01:44pm 67 Views
HNHH attended the 2013 BET Awards this past weekend, and while there we decided to give out some of our own awards.
Happy Fourth of July Hip Hop lovers! In honor of America’s birthday, we wanted to put together a list of some of our favorite artists showing their love for their country. Since the U.S.A is the birthplace of Hip Hop music, it’s only fitting we give our love back with this Patriotic list. Please let us know of any additional artists you think belong on this list!
The BET Awards are always eventful. This past weekend the event rounded up some of the biggest names in the hip-hop industry, to dish out awards, perform on stage, walk the red carpet, and generally keep things hip-hop.
As part of his “humanitarian” efforts, Dennis Rodman joined VICE and the Harlem Globetrotters on a trip to North Korea, a country that is stingy on admitting Americans because of diplomatic relations. During the North Korea Basketball Tour, Rodman spent some time with despot, and leader of the nation, Kim Jong-un, who was a fan of the 90s-era Chicago Bulls. The Worm was quoted earlier as sa
Call him Steve-O. The Cleveland Wild Boy is back with his new mixtape, Black Flag. Featuring all original music, the free album is more or less a gift to his dedicated EST fanbase. This project comes not too long after Machine Gun Kelly’s debut studio album, Lace Up, which released in October of last year. Nevertheless, MGK certainly didn’t rush the making of his latest mixtape.
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.
Toronto rapper and singer/songwriter D-Pryde is finally getting ready to drop his new EP, Canal & Richvale, which he is now providing as a full exclusive stream. The project is lead by his first single and video for "Lifted," and comes only a few short months after his signing with BMG. Check out the full tracklist and stream below, and pre-order the EP from iTunes here.
HNHH recently got together with Problem to film the visuals for his exclusive In The Booth track "Chachi's Revenge". We also got some footage of the rapper behind the scenes at the shoot, where he talked about the process behind the song and video.
Freddie Gibbs is a veteran in the rap game but it’s taken him a decade to put out his first studio album. Cutting his teeth on the mixtape circuit, Gibbs released a steady stream of solid projects rife with stories of the drug game. After signing with Interscope Records, Gibbs was shuffled to the back of the bus before being dropped altogether.
There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked (with the exception of redacted lyric leaks from Jay-Z). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.
We now have the numbers for what was a monumental week in rap history, with Kanye West, J. Cole and Mac Miller all dropping their respective albums on June 18th. And Kelly Rowland.
This week we keep it short and sweet for y'all. We've got four cuts from upstarts in music, who all deliver vastly different sounds, from the indie-kinda-rap OnCue spits, to the r'n'b ish JMSN delivers, to the '90s sounding rap from Dillon Cooper. We also threw in a cut from Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks.
Of the dozens of rappers debated as the G.O.A.T dead or alive, Nas's name probably comes up with the most frequency behind The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac (maybe ahead depending on the source).
