A breakdown of the week's hottest tracks by their samples.
Underrated Audio aims to provide you with some dope looks from the last seven days, that flew under most peoples' radars. While they may have received front-page placement on HNHH, they didn't get as many views as they deserve, so we shine a little more light on them right here.
HNHH took a quick trip to Austin, Texas this year for SXSW, to cover The Warner Sound (which included performances by, T.I., B.o.B., Wale, Meek Mill, Stalley, Curren$y, Kirko Bangz, XV & Snow Tha Product). The trip was a short one but productive nonetheless. It was my first time at SXSW and I definitely want to go back for more than three days next time.
The Fresh Prince truly was fresh, debuting many Jordan models over the years.
Time heals all wounds, and in the case of NBA fans, it appears they have moved past "hating" on LeBron James for bolting Cleveland via a nationally televised event and then parading on stage in Miami before even winning anything.

King Louie speaks the truth: “They say you can make it anywhere, if you make it in Chicago.” The city notoriously known as Chiraq has been long overshadowed by gang violence, and those fortunate enough to make it out the trap are considered heroes. You know the statistics; Chicago has more murders than the war in Iraq. To cope with the violence, the city’s youth created drill music.
The Air Jordan "Olympic Pack" features the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 6. Both sneakers feature removable flag decals and USA colorways. Included in the pack, wooden shoe trees, white Olympic dust bags, a USA Olympic Basketball themed Nike Destroyer jacket, and a hat bearing the flag.
The San Antonio Spurs have unveiled their new camouflage alternate jerseys. Earlier, the team announced that they would be releasing camo jerseys that would be worn on Military Appreciation nights.
Over the 20 or so years they've coexisted, rappers and reality TV have had a pretty great relationship. "Flavor of Love" is still one of the most popular reality programs of all-time, more people know Xzibit for "Pimp My Ride" than his appearances on Dr.

Cole, the Black Hippy crew and many, many more. For a small taste of what the event was like, peep the photos in the gallery above.

If you recall in the 2012 All Star Game introductions, Derrick Rose famously did not dance along with the four other starters. Some took this to mean D Rose is uptight, but here's the Bulls franchise point guard at his son's first birthday party dressed up.
The Knicks took another devastating loss last night, at home, against the Philadelphia 76er's. Knicks fans were outraged by the time the final seconds ticked down, and booed their hometown heroes into the locker room.

As we gather around for a Thanksgiving meal with family, friends and loved ones, we are grateful for what we have and are reminded of those that are less fortunate. For many, this holiday season has been marred by Hurricane Sandy and the destruction left behind. The super-storm that touched down in late October left
Kevin Hart took to instagram to display his latest pick-up. The elusive, Red October Yeezy II. Some instagrammers questioned the authenticity of the little man's Yeezy's, to which he quipped; "For my Haters…..REAL REAL REAL BITCHHHEESSSS!!! #TheyMadBecauseIgotMineSoEarly #OhYouMadCuzImStylingOnYou #LittleSwag #Connections #HowDareYou #EnoughSaid."Ya'll gon' learn today!
Hip hop and basketball have an undeniably strong cultural connection; their influence on each other is greater than any inter-music/sport relationship, and this website's existence is a testament. Of course, when two realms are so closely linked, the inclination to cross-over seems more natural, and NBA players like to think they can rap even more than rappers like to think they can ball.
NBA fans in the Philippines were understandably excited when members of the Rockets and Pacers touched down to play a pre season game in Manila. After all, this is the first NBA game being played in the Philippines.
With four league MVPs, four NBA Finals appearances, two straight titles along with two Finals MVPs, LeBron James is the consensus "best player on the planet." Not satisfied with just being the greatest currently, LeBron has opened up about striving to be the greatest to ever play the game.
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh huh honey."
Today we get more images of the Air Jordan 11 "Taxi". This sneaker features a white upper with with a half black midsole, red accents on the Jordan logo and 23. This kick also details golden eyelets and hits of gold on the outsole and background of the Jordan logo. You can cop this dope kick when it comes out on December 14th for $160.
A day late, but here's three tracks from last week that were lacking in views but good ish nonetheless. Trouble- Let Them Tell it I not only love this beat but the lyrics are on point. If you let them tell it...everybody's fake as fuck. True words from DTE's Trouble. Johnny Polygon- My Shit >

Classic Rotation: Ol' Dirty Bastard's "Return To The 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version" Mar 28, 2015 at 06:53pm 3,073 Views
Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version turns 20 today. Rap music’s most eccentric figure isn’t here to celebrate the occasion, but he did leave behind a phenomenal LP during his time here on earth.
Since its inception in 1946, the NBA has fluctuated as a league, which at times was dominated by guards and at other times, ruled by big men. Originally, the center position was meant to swat shots, grab rebounds, and score with their backs to the rim. The new era of centers such as Tim Duncan and Marc Gasol now have the ability to handle the ball, pass, and pull-up for the midrange jump shot.
