HNHH's 'On The Come-Up' profiles rising rappers and producers that show strong promise but haven't necessarily seen much shine on the site. This could range from those deep underground to artists on the cusp of the mainstream that we've overlooked.
As we continue to suffer through the #MusicDrought (as one HNHH commenter put it), we once again bring you weekly jams that stood out from the mainstream ish we hear all the time. There's some variety on this week's list, from simple instrumentals, to chilled out strip club music, to ignorant bangers. A little something for everyone to vibe too.
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.
For those of you still unfamiliar, meet Action Bronson, government name Arian Asllani, a 29-year-old chef-turned-rapper of Albanian descent.

Having enlisted in the rap game not three years ago after an
"Lyrics bleed from my mind state / Elevate my mind and watch it rise like the crime rate."–Logic, Walk On By There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked (with the exception of diss tracks like Pitbull's "Welcome to Dade County"). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really
Nike is releasing the Phoenix Suns edition of the Foamposite Ones next week. They've been compared with the Eggplants which were previously released in 2010. These Foamposites consist of a very strong purple and an almost reflective orange. Besides the change in colorway, the soles seem to be made of a new composite. They're very clear and look something like frosted glass.
It seems like good music has been slow lately. Although we're still being bombarded with content on the daily, it seems like you have to wade through a lot to find the gems.

There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days. Generally, specific lyrics tend to get overlooked (with the exception of Lil' Wayne's recent Emmett Till controversy). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.
The Air Jordan 3 - Bright Crimson's are releasing this week. The 3 has always been amongst the favorites of the Jordan collection. On this drop the shoe will feature a "Canyon Purple" on the elephant print & the sole, as well as "Bright Crimson" accents on a classic black canvas. Definitely a great look for spring 2013. Release Date: February 23 2013
Game Changers is an HNHH feature that profiles artists who've left a strong mark on hip hop. Whether it be through creativity, influence, exposure or simply good timing, they've brought something to rap music that the game just wouldn't be the same without. This week, we've chosen to profile an inarguable game changer: RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan.
This past week we saw an influx of themed content, surrounding Valentine's Day and the NBA All-Star Weekend. Rappers just love dropping material simultaneously, thus the site was busy with mixtapes and songs centered around either subject, resulting in some music getting pushed aside. Here are five tracks that may have been neglected in the V-Day and All-Star frenzy that occupied last week.

This new weekly feature will highlight a few popular tracks from throughout the week, giving readers another chance to listen to and discuss some of the bigger and better songs that we cover. Rather than re-posting the top ten most viewed tracks, we're selecting a few from the top 25 that stood out and still leave room for discussion.
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.
All the single guys out there know Valentine's is just another hallmark holiday, but that doesn't mean you can't celebrate the occasion. What better way to protest the couple-centric day, than to embrace your own bachelor-status with a
Debuting in 2005, Gucci Mane has been in the game for a better part of a decade and has a discography that reflects that.
