In recent years, hip-hop artists have become more and more tatted as the trend continues to grow. Once upon a time, the average rapper may have had a few selective tats on their bodies, but it's now a usual sight to see emcees with fully tatted chests, sleeves, backs and even tattoos on the face. Artists such as 50 Cent, Tyga, Lil Wayne and Wiz Khalifa exhibit this perfectly.
The choice of...

Another stellar year for hip-hop. As the digital market continued to flourish, singles did accordingly. From Chicago trap to New York boom-bap to Houston trill, it’s all here. Not only were the year’s top singles diverse, but their marketing tactics were unique as well (take Kanye’s “New Slaves”, for example).
It is no surprise that Kendrick Lamar and DJ Mustard had...
HNHH recently got the chance to chop it up with video vixen, dancer, and model Tokyo. Tokyo's stock in the rap game has been on the rise, ever since she appeared in Kendrick Lamar's music video for "Backseat Freestyle" as 'Sherane.' The labeling led some to believe that she was actually THE Sherane K. Dot talks about on good kid, m.A.A.d city (although it's not true). As Tokyo continues to...
At the beginning of October we heard DJ Premier confirm that he will produce a full Nas album one day-- which got us excited, and also got us thinking about what other albums we're really, really hoping will drop in the not-so-distant future.
Many avid hip-hop fans have a similar wish-list to ours-- Dr. Dre's Detox, an Outkast album, that infamous Kendrick Lamar & J. Cole joint project, to name...

“A rapper”. This is
the common response an NBA player gives when asked “what would you be if you
weren’t in the NBA?”, (with “actor” a close second). Many ballers have put their money where the
mic is and tried their hand at rapping, an even a few have started up their own fledgling labels. We take a look at the NBAers who have shown some promise on the mic. HNHH...
Guest features have been an important part of hip hop throughout its history, and have become increasingly popular in recent years. It's a great way for artists to cross promote between each other's fan bases, as well as give each track a signature shakeup for a verse or two. The only problem with letting other rappers spit, is once in a while they body you on your own shit. See what I did there?...

From being a rarity in the hip-hop game to the norm, mix-tapes are now a way for artists to get their name recognized; they're a way for an artist to release songs that didn't make the album but still deserve recognition and sometimes, mix-tapes are crucial for an artist to find their voice and make it stick out amongst the masses. At HNHH, we recognize that mix-tapes deserve recognition,...

Yeezy Season is about to bestow itself upon us very soon, folks. Twenty people in Paris have heard Ye's new album and he also told the students of Los Angeles Trade Technical College that he's now "waiting" for it to come out, implying that it's pretty much in the hands of Def Jam as we speak.
West has revealed small pockets of information about the new album, many details of which...
