Troy Ave talks to HNHH backstage at the Festival Village.
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.

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.

Call them bloopers, call them fails, but it would be difficult to justify calling these "plays." We take a look at the 12 Worst On-Court Fails from the 2012-2013 season, starring of course, JaVale McGee and Kendrick Perkins.
Recently it was revealed the LeBron James is the second highest paid athlete in all of the United States, and had surpassed Kobe Bryant who had long stood as the “most popular player” worldwide in the NBA. Now Forbes has released numbers of top sneaker sales and it’s easy to see why James is earning more than the rest as his shoes sold six times as much as the next player, Kobe Bryant’s
The days of slowing it down and pounding the ball inside are all but gone. Dominant bigs have been replaced by speedy, ultra-talented guards half their size. Coaches are trotting out smaller and smaller lineups in an attempt to match up. We may have more elite point guards in the league now than ever before, which made compiling this list challenging.
It’s been hard to turn on the radio in the past year or so and not hear French Montana’s rich yet slurred delivery coming through the speakers. The Moroccan born, Bronx, NY bred rapper’s rise to the top may seem like it happened overnight but that’s far from the case.
In 2002 the team moved to the old home of the Jazz, New Orleans, as the game of “Musical Chairs For Team Names” began. Only two years later, the league brought in a new team to Charlotte, and the Bobcats were born. Looking for a change, and feeling no relation with the Hornets team name, New Orleans changed to the Pelicans at the end of this season. With the Hornets team name up for grabs
For this week's Track Breakdown, we called upon rising singer August Alsina. August already has a deal locked in with Def Jam, through none other than r'n'b singer and hit-maker, The-Dream. With mentoring from Terius Nash, there is no doubt that August will go far with his music. The 20-year-old singer recently released his second mixtape, The Product 2, and the response has been very positive.
