We break down "Only One," "Wolves" and "All Day" and see what hints they hold about Kanye West's upcoming album.
Take note, aspiring rappers - if you create a single that's both catchy and infectious enough to catch the ear of the mainstream, you could be thrust into the limelight sooner than you think (establishing connections doesn't hurt, either).
Yesterday the blogs and gossip sites went crazy over security footage from an elevator at the Standard Hotel in NYC on the night of the Met Gala. The footage showed Solange, Jay Z and Beyonce entering the elevator with security guards, and as the doors close, Solange completely attacks Hova, feet kicking in the air and hands flailing.
Just as a disclaimer, you won't find Detox on this list. We gave up on that a long time ago. We can only assume at this point that Dre is swimming in a literal pool of Apple money somewhere, Scrooge McDuck style. What you will find on this list however is a whole bunch of projects that we cannot wait any longer for, we need them.
Originality is a rarity in modern hip-hop, and when an experimental album comes along, it tends to polarize listeners initially. Take Kanye West's new album Yeezus, for example. Its minimalism, raw emotion and amalgamation of genres was difficult for many diehard fans to stomach at first (not to mention the left-field visuals).
After giving everyone a positive spin with the Hottest Songs of 2014, we're getting brutally honest and critical today with the Most Disappointing Projects of 2014. Following 2013’s parade of ridiculously good albums, it was hard to keep pace and not get left behind from the jump. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened with some of the releases of 2014.
Last night proved to be an eventful one, when we learned that Lil Boosie was finally a free man. All the internet rejoiced, and fans of the Baton Rouge native began to come out of the woodwork, just in time to celebrate his freedom.
Halloween arrives tomorrow, and it's the time of the year where grown ass men and women can get away with dressing up as whatever they want, really, and usually for women, that involves showing as much skin as possible.
Game has held an interesting position in the rap game since his monstrous debut in 2005, The Documentary. He’s acknowledged as one of the premier acts from the West Coast, but he’s been hit-or-miss with his projects since that first album.

"They want that old Sosa… for what doe?" Well, for good reason. Chief Keef ran into some icebergs with Bang Pt. 2, and the ship continues to sink. The same qualities that were present on his last mixtape reappear on Almighty So. Poor mixing and sloppy delivery continue to cloud the highlights. Thankfully the beats were banging, or else this mixtape would have been a lot worse.
When the world was first introduced to Jaden and Willow Smith, the children of celebrity power couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, they seemed pretty normal for famous kids.
YG first popped up on the radar with the 2009 song "Toot It And Boot It" featuring Ty Dolla $ign. While he was locked up serving a six-month sentence for a parole violation stemming from a home invasion, the Compton native saw the song steadily climb the Billboard charts. Once YG was released, he had several label options, eventually signing with Def Jam.
It's Thanksgiving today, so while you enjoy your day off with family and friends and probably some turkey, you can also waste time by clicking through our twerky gifs! Not much to explain here, just something (sort of) festive for the holiday. Who doesn't enjoy a good Thanksgiving twerk? We hope that Miley Cyrus one doesn't turn you off turkey completely though.
Hot 97's Summer Jam 2014 took over New Jersery's Met Life stadium last night, with plenty of rappers and artists gathering there for the event, some tapped specifically by Hot 97, some surprise performers, and some, like Rihanna and Fat Joe, were just there to take it all in.
With the relentless expansion of the Internet and the rise of social media, mass exposure is accessible to more artists than ever before, for better or worse. Each new year gives rise to new artists, as well as older artists attempting to reinvent themselves in the digital age. Of this ever-growing yield there are artists that stand out,
The first few months of 2013 passed with the hip-hop game in limbo, with a severe lack of albums that sparked everyone's attention. Weezys tenth album, I Am Not A Human Being II, was mediocre compared to his previous projects, A$AP Rocky's album, despite being exceptional was leaked late last year, weeks before its release date; several artists pushed their album release dates back extinguishin
The story of two brothers who came from nothing, from a city far off the hip-hop radar, and built an empire. But they didn’t do it alone. Brothers Bryan “Baby” Williams (who we now know as Birdman), age 22, and Ronald “Slim” Williams, age 24, wanted to get out of their projects and build a better life for their family and friends in Magnolia and the surrounding Wards.
Beyonce & Jay Z Share Photos From New Year's Eve & Blue Ivy's 2nd Birthday Jan 16, 2014 at 06:05 PM 41,353 Views
Beyonce and Jay Z like to keep their personal life under tight wraps, so whenever we get a glimpse at what the power couple has been up too, we usually take it.
Hip-hop and beef are synonymous with one another. The nature of the game is competitive, and so stars are always getting into tussles with one another, diss tracks are released (if you're Papoose, it often appears for no reason whatsoever), and with help from social networks like Twitter, we often have feuds occurring over the insignificant issues.
2012 was a great year for music lovers. With plenty of album releases from rap veterans and newcomers alike, hip-hop heads have been very busy listening to the latest projects from the biggest and not so biggest names in the industry.

For one reason or another, Big Sean has yet to achieve that "classic album" status that's so sought after in hip-hop.
With Halloween just two days away, it's the time of year when all women feel free to dress up in their sexiest (insert Halloween costume here). No one is judged for their scantily clad outfits, and it's best that way. In celebration of one of the sexiest days of the year, HNHH compiled 25 Sexy-Ass Halloween Costumes from the urban and hip-hop sphere for your enjoyment.
Critics are always fighting conflicting urges. On the one hand, there's the need to be objective and evaluate each work on its own merits. On the other, there's the desire to fit each new release from an artist into an over-arcing career narrative. The trick is to find a balance between the two.
You can never really expect what will come out of a rapper's mouth at any given moment. Hip-hop is a genre that is known for its unbridled, outspoken nature so it is really no surprise that the artists in the genre bring us some very hilarious quotables when they sit down for an interview.
