Young Money's latest collaboration album, "Rise Of An Empire", features labelmates who've skirted success over the years. Unfortunately, the new album doesn't hint they will ever achieve it.
Usher's eleven-year-old step-son has been declared brain dead, following a jet ski accident on Friday.TMZ reports Kyle Glover, who is the son of Usher's estranged wife, Tameka Foster, has not experienced any brain activity since he was admitted to the hospital on Friday.Sources say Usher arrived at the hospital on the night of July 7th, while Tameka has not left since Friday.
With the rise of digital music, decline of music sales, and mass growth and adoption of social networks and blogs, we have seen the playing field become leveled. With that has come fewer major label releases and a lion share of independent releases.
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.
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.
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

Earlier this year, hip-hop bible XXL Magazine featured rappers A$AP Rocky and French Montana on its cover declaring New York rap is back. While the focus of the game has shifted to other parts of the country in the past several years or so, there are some native New York emcees that are doing their part to rep their city.
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.
Rap is a young man’s game. No matter how much you may disagree, the fact remains that there are a good bit of rhymesayers who have secured their financial future from making a successful entry into the rap arena and conquering other avenues.
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.
2013 wasn't just a good year for music, we also saw some great and memorable album covers. Artwork is an important aspect of any project, as art will likely draw a listener in off first glance and can also give you an idea of what's to come-- themes can often be represented in the art, but then again, sometimes art is drawn up for pure jokes-- both instances are seen in this countdown.
The songwriting process in rap can sometimes be hard to follow. With the use of sampling, and the genre's increasingly collaborative production methods, breaking down the construction of songs can become convoluted. Unless you're in the studio, a close reading of the liner notes is the most accurate representation of what went into the music presented on record.
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.
Last week we took a look at the “NBA’s 10 Best Rappers”, and the list was filled with some ballers you may have known rhymed, and a few surprise performances, and overall they held their own in the booth. Now we have compiled a list of 10 NBA players who have besmirched not only their basketball reputation, but the entire hip hop community by trying their hand at
This new 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.
Game Changers is a new HNHH feature that highlights artists that have left a strong mark on hip hop. Whether it be through creativity, influence, exposure, or just plain good timing, a game changer is someone who has brought something to rap where the game just wouldn't be the same without them. In our first entry to the series, we're
There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific bars are often overlooked (with the exception of anything ever uttered by Drake). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.
Mixtapes are like opinions. Everyone has one, but not all of them matter.
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?
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.
For an artist that's just turned 21, Mac Miller has a discography that would have taken many years to garner. It took some time to sort through 7 mixtapes, 3 EP'S, and an independent album. But, after some extensive research and hours of listening to the Pittsburgh rapper, we've broken down 25 of his top songs.
Rappers have extremely demanding work schedules, especially the successful ones. With all the time they need to prioritize towards writing music, recording, performing and engaging in press interviews, a lot of them just simply use the time to rest and unwind. However, some of them find extra time to pick up truly unique and worthwhile hobbies.
As y'all know, Sundays are slow here at HNHH, which is reason enough to kill time with this completely arbitrary list.
Maybach: over a century old now this luxury automobile brand will soon cease production for the second time during its illustrious reign. From tanks to trains, and of course Exelero’s and Landaulet’s, Maybach has a history to be proud of. That said their legacy in the rap game is just beginning.Rick Ross began utilizing the moniker for his music group in 2008.
