HNHH takes a look at some of Drake's funniest moments in recent years.
With yesterday's news from A$AP Yams that the Mob's debut album was officially scrapped, the only positive news was the promise of new music. Yams tweeted that while the compilation album was cancelled, we'd get a mixtape in October from A$AP Nast as well as a new album later this year from Rocky. So we can't be that mad, right?
Sometimes one song can set the precedence for an album’s entirety and Chris Brown’s opening title-track, X does just that. The Diplo-produced, hip-hop/EDM comprised record symbolizes Brown’s back and forth attempt at being an R&B, hip-hop, pop and dance music star.The song starts off slow and then builds up to an uptempo dance record filled with egotistical lyrics.
This was hard. This was really hard. Mostly because we love all of Kanye West's albums. They've each played a unique role in the progression of hip-hop (and music in general), each pushing the boundaries of his sound and offering something new to the table.However it's fun to really dissect a great artist's work, and Kanye's is no different.
Beef is good for Hip Hop its like high school fights niggas dont really get hurt most the time but when they do? AWW MAN #youngveggiesvoice — Vince Staples (@vincestaples) May 5, 2014
The beauty of a cypher is that it gathers artists from different walks of life and allows them to share their fortes. In a hip-hop cypher, competitors and spectators alike gather to hear some of the hardest bars around. The nicest emcee goes home with the respect of onlookers and a metaphorical prize that comes with murdering everything on sight.
As a 17-year-old just beginning to make waves in the rap game, Jo-Vaughn Virginie Scott didn't have the same life as most kids his age. He wasn't thinking about graduating high school to attend a university or enter the work force. As a matter of fact, before he even graduated high school he had formed a collective with classmates that would come to be known as Pro Era.
2014 may be remembered as one of the weakest years for rap in recent memory, but there were, however, some definite highlights, especially when it came to newcomers. Bobby Shmurda had one of last year’s biggest rap records, DeJ Loaf had one of last year’s most remixed rap records and Young Thug was one of last year’s most talked about rap artists (even if for all of the wrong reasons).
Game doesn't quite get the respect he deserves. Sometimes things like his habitual name dropping and controversy divert attention from the fact that he has been one of the most consistent rappers over the last decade.
Scrolling through the comments on a Young Thug Instagram post is an experience like no other, even in an age when being able to hide behind a computer screen has made disparaging trolls out of nearly all of us.
Summer is nearing it's end, and while the warm weather will soon subside, the season will be remembered through the tracks that soundtracked it. With plenty of huge releases, we've been pretty spoiled as far as big summer tracks go, with material from the likes of Drake, J. Cole, the Black Hippy crew and more.
Selfies are now a worldwide phenomenon. Yes, turning the camera on yourself has become an extremely popular act of our generation. Whether it's to show off your new look, a dope location or just to share your current emotion. We love selfies.
June 18th might as well have been Christmas Day for hip-hop fans. Kanye West’s highly anticipated album Yeezus finally hit the shelves. Determined to go against one of the heavyweights of rap, J. Cole decided to move up his sophomore album Born Sinner to compete with West.
Last week, at the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival, Jay Electronica gave fans a set to remember as he brought out labelmate Jay Z, Mac Miller, J. Cole, and Talib Kweli. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, Jay is an elusive rapper and producer who joined Jay Z’s Roc Nation roster label in 2010.
Slinging crack rock, popping glocks, and smacking hoes is not the way to keep it gangsta. In the words of Stic.man of the hip-hop duo Dead Prez, "HEALTHY IS THE NEW GANGSTA." True happiness can be achieved through knowledge, proper nutrition, fitness, and meditation; not guns and drugs.
Each year around the beginning of March, artists begin sending in pitches to XXL, hoping to wind up on the magazine’s highly-coveted Freshmen list. Thus far, we’ve seen Lil Herb, Bishop Nehru, Fat Trel, and a few others try to convince us they have what it takes to grace the cover along with eleven of their peers, each turning in a short video clip to the publication.
In honor of 4/20, HNHH has put together a gallery documenting hip hop's love affair with kush. Make sure to vote in the poll below, and tell us which artist has the biggest weed habit! Also, don't forget to let us know who we missed in the comments. But most importantly, keep in mind that it's always 4:20 somewhere! // Which Artist smokes the most Kush?
With the rise of social media, we can only wonder if artists would have the balls to say the things they say via Instagram and/or Twitter in real ass life. The social media age has made it all too easy for artists and the average person alike to throw shade whenever they please, and then, when things get a bit rough, hit 'delete.' Fortunately, most of the time, we catch it.
Sir Robert Bryson Hall II even sounds like future royalty. Professionally known as Logic, the massively talented Maryland MC has that potential. He’s also an interesting meta case study of multiple perspectives. Surface level, his racial background paints a ready-made perception, fair or not.
Producers are generally the ones responsible for hot sound and trends, but they are often outshone by the more visible artists in front of them. HNHH is taking the opportunity to shed light on some of the most innovative and and prolific beatmakers in the game right now.

Dot's music.Well, now she's shown even more support, having reached Pitchfork Music Festival where Lamar was performing this weekend to catch his set.Gaga watched Kendrick from the side of the stage, and the two were seen hugging later.
Mixtapes are like opinions. Everyone has one, but not all of them matter.
Last week, the world got an unprecedented look inside of Schoolboy Q's various addictions on Oxymoron, an album named after the painkiller Oxycodone. It's most certainly an album that can be categorized as "drug rap," making it the latest in the long, storied history of rapper's infatuation with, selling of, and popularizing of various controlled and illegal substances.
With A$AP Rocky debuting the new track "M's" just hours ago, excitement for his upcoming album has never been higher. A few weeks ago, we got a title, A.L.L.A. (At. Long.La$t.A$AP), and then a potential release date, so we're in the full-swing of what was once called the "album release cycle," before Beyoncé upended that shit in December 2013.
In 2014, it's no secret that where Kanye West goes, the rest of hip-hop follows. Starting with him and Just Blaze making "chipmunk soul" a hot sound in Roc-A-Fella's prime, Mr.
