"Origins" offers a break down of the samples in each track featured on Eminem's "Marshall Mathers LP 2."
Mmmmaybach music. The heaviest group in hip-hop presents the third volume of their Self Made album series. Formulaically, the self-proclaimed untouchable Maybach empire haven't missed a step. Likewise previous installments in the series, Self Made Vol. 3 is packed with speaker-knocking beats driven by Rozay and company.
Since it's evolution from the late 1980s, hip-hop music has gone from strength to strength. Nothing tells the story of this success better than seeing the facts by numbers. We often hear about first week album sales, and then there's always Forbes annual break-down of the wealthiest celebrities, but after that, we forget about it.
For years, we have tried to decode the enigma that is Wale. Rather than being lauded for his gift of gab, he's been overshadowed by his shill cries for acceptance. You see, Wale always had the skills to be a special artist in hip-hop. Nobody questioned his motor in the booth. Nobody questioned his scintillating wordplay.
Waking up isn't always easy. Why would anyone want to leave the comfort of their warm bed to enter out in to the world? It almost doesn't make sense when you think about it. But we all have responsibilities, and we can't waste our entire lives away sleeping!
In many ways, it's surprising that we're still doing a list like this in 2014, as we've reached a point where music has, almost, gone entirely digital. No one's actually buying physical albums, but we still see album artwork with each release, and we certainly had some compelling examples in 2014.
50 Cent entered the Billboard 200 this week, with Animal Ambition moving more than the projected amount, although it's still not the numbers Fif used to do. It's independent numbers though, with a showing of 47,000 units. It will likely be quiet on the charts until we approach June 24th, when we've got multiple albums, including ones from Ab-Soul and Riff Raff, dropping.
Yes it's back again! We've gone digging for those stupid, hilarious, random and anger-filled comments that your favorite rappers make, for another edition of Shit Rappers Say. Unlike any other genre, you can always expect rappers to be outspoken, and be blunt with honesty, after all that's what they endeavor to do with their music.
In the competition between the same-day release rappers Juicy J and Big Sean Juicy J appears to be taking the lead, although Sean debuted stronger than Juicy initially. Not to say they both haven't fallen quite a few spots-- they have. However Juicy J's fan base remains more persistent that Sean Don, with Stay Trippy selling another 21k at #15 and Hall Of Fame selling only 18k at #24.
Throughout Welcome to Forever Robert Bryson Hall II reflects upon the last year of his career. The opening title track recalls when Logic met Nas for the first time in the line, “Shook his hand then he started quoting my lines? God damn this is real life!”
The other week the kid Tory Lanez stopped by our office for an interview. It was about time the HNHH readers got better acquainted with the rising rapper, who recently debuted his Lost Cause mixtape exclusively on HNHH and wrapped up his "Lost Cause" tour. The Toronto native opened up in our interview, discussing his upbringing and the loss of his mom, his behind-the-scenes work, and much more.
Ron Artest was involved in the most nefarious brawl in league history at the Malice At The Palace, but it was after he was ejected from a game in a playoff series in 2011 that he wanted to start anew, and changed his name legally to Metta World Peace.Recently, Metta was amnestied by the Lakers and then picked up by his hometown New York Knicks. Wanting to have yet another fresh start, World Peac
Are you a lanky, purple-haired smoke enthusiast who raps, or a singer with long dreads and a penchant to wear a bandana? That's the ultimate question we're asking with the release of the new EP from Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dolla $ign, Talk About It In The Morning.
Like we did last year, we'll be rolling out a slew of year-end lists to round up everything that went down in rap and r'n'b in easy-to-digest list-form. We like to kick things off with the Most Searched Artists on our site of 2014, because that will give people a good gauge of who was popping on HNHH specifically in the last year.
There've been a slew of rap game birthdays lately. Alicia Keys celebrated her born day on Friday, Lil Jon's was yesterday and now it's The Bawse's turn for cake. Turning 37 today, Rick Ross' impressive career boasts a plethora of solid songs and verses. He's overcome criticism, beef, literal shots and even two seizures to become one of the best in the game currently.
The Game hosted a private listening event this afternoon for his fifth album, "Jesus Piece." The event took place at Space 15 Twenty in Hollywood, CA - where everyone celebrated with soul food, champagne and 40oz's.
The trend of surprise albums has definitely caused a shift in the traditional method of releasing music. Interviews, music videos and singles are still protocol (well, usually), but we’ve watched the likes of Jay Z, Beyonce, Kanye West, Skrillex, J. Cole etc. trade customary release dates for something a little more exciting and spontaneous.
6 Things We Learned From Kendrick Lamar's Interview With Flying Lotus Apr 10, 2015 at 02:01pm 17,627 Views
The day Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly came out, Flying Lotus took to twitter to let us know some inside information on the LP. It turns out that FlyLo was helping Kendrick with the visual portion for his opening slot on the "Yeezus" Tour, and, at the same time, he gave the MC a folder full of beats to mess with for TPAB.
Wiz Khalifa nabs the cover for Complex's October/November issue. Peep the cover below as well as other photos from the shoot, and head to Complex for the full cover story.
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.
Music videos have always been an integral part of hip-hop. Whether it’s shots of the neighborhoods that birthed some of the world’s biggest stars, or the spoils that come with commercial victories, the visuals are a crucial component to solidifying artistic expression.
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.
Today may not be a government-mandated holiday, but for those who advocate a green lifestyle, it's just as important as any other statutory holiday. Rap music has a special niche for all the weed smokers out there, however it's really transcended that niche genre and has become pretty common-place.
All too often, emcees get caught up listening to and taking influence from the majors instead of looking at the wealth of material growing right in their local music scene. DeJ Loaf is not that kind of emcee. The following ten tracks, all of which Loaf picked herself, were so underground Detroit that half of the emcees listed didn't even come up in a Google image search.
Tyler The Creator is known for his crazy attitude, style, and lyrics. The latter of which have been shocking, cruel, grotesque, immature, and usually all of them combined, leaving the listener to ask himself, "WTF!?!?"
