    Here at HotNewHipHop we advocate people getting "Turnt Up!"  Sometimes it's going to the club and wildin' out more than usual, getting amped up before a basketball game, or just going nuts in your bedroom listening to big tunes.  "Turnt Up" has become a phrase synonymous with letting loose, having an insane night, or just getting messed up on whatever your vice of choice.   We've decided to...

    Trinidad James is by no means reserved when it comes to fashion. You might see him in an all over gold print shirt, or wearing HBA with motocross pants (we don't get it either). However last night James broke out a fresh new pair of Shadow Jordan 1s, and broke a sneaker commandment. Pictured above, you can see the extra grey lace bag still attached to the shoe. Hopefully he's not planning on...

    Ty Dolla $ign has been on the come-up for awhile, and although he still is on his way up, he's definitely started carving out his own lane within the rap/r'n'b game. The West Coast native has been steadily dropping mixtapes, since 2011's House On The Hill, to his most recent, Beach House 2. All the while he's kept close ties with frequent collaborators like DJ Mustard, Teeflii, YG, and the...

    Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife, Siohvaughn Wade, is suing the NBA All-Star for a $1 million, alleging that he and his attorneys have been deliberately “hiding” money to keep her from accessing it. According to the lawsuit filed by Wade’s ex, the two had signed agreements with endorsement companies in the past where payments were to be deposited into a joint-account they both had access to.  Now...

  • Jay-Z Says Obama Said "Give Me The Ball" At End Of 2nd Election
    4,760 Views
    Barack Obama's love for basketball is a subject that comes up fairly regularly as the President loves to play hoops, and doesn't even mind if he catches an errant elbow, or is off on a day and throws up some bricks in front of onlookers, he just likes to ball.  The President has somewhat of a relationship with Roc Nation Sports head, and hip hop mogul, Jay-Z, who took part in the OPUS'...
  • Dennis Rodman Has His Own Brand Of "Bad Boy" Vodka
    1,059 Views
    Dennis Rodman’s career, and life, has been riddled with controversy, so naturally he’s a great fit to be a spokesperson for a new brand of vodka.  Taking a cue from his days as a Detroit Piston, the vodka is called Bad Boy Vodka. The spirit has been made with basketball in mind (whatever that means) and The Worm himself describes it as “tough and edgy, yet smooth and classic taste.” ...

    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. While Kanye has declared himself god and delved into even...

    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...

    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. With...

    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. And it's not even just those tweets from back in the day, even now,...

    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. As for Beach House...
