A look at all the incidents that have given Birdman and Cash Money such notoriety.
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.
It's just been announced that Meek Mill will support Nicki on the "Pinkprint" tour. Judging by his personality, Meek is no "opening act," but for Nicki, he'll gladly make an exception. In his own words, Nicki Minaj is "da best female ever". That tweet was from three years ago, and Meek's thirst goes back even further than that. Meek first tweeted about Nicki in October of 2009.
The other week the kid Tory Lanez stopped by our office for an interview. It was about time the HNHH readers got better acquainted with the rising rapper, who recently debuted his Lost Cause mixtape exclusively on HNHH and wrapped up his "Lost Cause" tour. The Toronto native opened up in our interview, discussing his upbringing and the loss of his mom, his behind-the-scenes work, and much more.

Last night the marquee game on the slate was the OKC Thunder visiting the L.A. Clippers, and the game didn't disappoint in the highlights department. OKC controlled the first half, and with only seconds remaining in the second quarter, Serge Ibaka got tangled up with Blake Griffin, and Matt Barnes took exception to Serge pushing away from Blake.
Nike has launched a new interactive experience dubbed "LeBron James: A Decade in the Making." Essentially, this animated experience highlights each of LeBron's signature shoes to date, and also features his newest, LeBron 11 signature.

You can feel Cozz's hunger when listening to his music. It's easy to understand why J. Cole would want the youngster out of LA on his Dreamville/Interscope Label. Cozz has the lyrical trappings of a rapstar in the making.
A$AP Rocky Apologizes To Jason Collins, For Seeming Homophobic At MTV VMAs Sep 10, 2013 at 10:57am 240 Views
During the 2013 MTV Video Awards, A$AP Rocky was on stage with Jason Collins – who famously came out to the media this summer – and introduced Macklemore’s “Same Love” which deals with the subject matter of equality and having an open mind towards people of varying sexuality. Inadvertently, the rapper gave Collins a strange look while they were introducing Macklemore, and it instantly b
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.
Tyga's Reebok T-Raww "Brass" is available now at select Reebok dealers. The sneakers look gold, but it's described as a metallic brass, and it smothers the entire shoe. Beige laces and a thick dark gum outsole accompany the brass theme. "T-Raww" is written on the sole in case you forgot who's sneaker it was.
Drake unveiled the artwork for the standard and deluxe editions of his new album Nothing Was The Same this past week. As with all things Drake, memes soon ensued.
Twitter Reacts To Drake's Second Meek Mill Diss, "Back To Back" Jul 29, 2015 at 10:54am 105,977 Views
Initial reactions can determine a lot. Reception for Drake's first Meek Mill diss, "Charged Up," was lukewarm, and had many ready to crown Meek the champion of a beef in which he hadn't even dropped music yet.
"Tall men come down to my height when I hit 'em in the body." -Jack Dempsey The rap game may be dominated by rappers of average height, but some of its biggest stars fall well below that margin.
Drake & Future's "What A Time To Be Alive": The Complete Name-Drop Guide Sep 22, 2015 at 12:53pm 38,872 Views
Drake and Future successfully created a moment with What A Time To Be Alive, successfully dodging leaks and getting rap fans everywhere tuned in to a a good old-fashioned radio show. Of course, the main difference with doing this in 2015 is the project could instantly be discussed on a major scale, with fans everywhere tweeting out lyrics as they happened.
The biggest story in this week's charts is the triumphant return of Janet Jackson, who -- as she should -- takes the top spot this week, making her one of three artists who has scored number one albums over the last four decades. It kicked off a very rap and R&B-heavy top 5, followed by The Weekend, Drake & Future, and Fetty Wap. Take a look at the full breakdown below.
Review: Earl Sweatshirt's "I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside" Mar 29, 2015 at 03:42pm 21,778 Views
Earl Sweatshirt’s I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Get Outside is a short and moody album. It also happens to be a very focused, quality listen, and possibly the best output we’ve received from the California native. Through bummed-out stoned raps and shoegazing beats, Earl proves to be one of the most talented, albeit depressed, rappers in the game.
In the past thirty or so years, the Hip Hop genre has made its way through so many transformations, crossing over all different elements of culture. During its emerging popularity, rappers and artists in the community began to influence a lot more than just the music world. Fashion became a huge part of the hip hop scene, influencing and inspiring trends on a mass scale.
Yesterday, The Game surprised us all by announcing that his long-awaited sequel to 2005's The Documentary would span two discs and 38 tracks. Unless you're a ride-or-die Game fan, this news may come as a disappointment.
Ludacris is a veteran in the game. Lyrics, beats, hit songs, a unique style; over his 10-plus year career he has obviously shown why he has been one of the most respected and successful stars in hip hop.
Not a lot of people can captivate their listeners in the realm of R&B anymore. Do you remember when Mary J. Blige soulfully wowed us on Jay Z’s “Can’t Knock The Hustle”? Do you remember when Jamie Foxx channeled his inner Ray Charles on Kanye West’s “Gold Digger”? Times like that were special.
Rap has an long-running obsession with food. Even "Rapper's Delight' couldn't resist speaking about grub, and when Wonder Mike dropped these words on the eighth verse of the pinnacle track, it opened up a lane that hasn't shut down since... "I mean the macaroni's soggy, the peas are mushed, and the chicken tastes like wood"
Bobby Shmurda and various GS9 crew members were picked up by police on Wednesday, December 17th, while recording at Quad studios in NYC. At the time, it was unclear just how serious (and how many) charges the were against the burgeoning rapper and his affiliates. Shmurda had been arrested earlier this year, but that was extremely minor in comparison.
On paper, recording a song for a film soundtrack is considered the ultimate form of selling out. The music itself is literally used as promotional material for a larger product. Music money is big, but movie money is on another level (ask Ludacris, who hasn't released an album since "Fast Five").
The Kardashian/Jenner clan truly broke the Internet yesterday (June 1). Kim and Kanye announced their second child, only to be overshadowed by even bigger news, as Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce Jenner) officially presented herself to the world by appearing on the cover of Vanity Fair.
Jay Rock has made quite the name for himself over the past few years with strong features alongside his peers Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and Schoolboy Q. Just recently, the California native released his second full-length album 90059, so what better time to look back at some of the essential tracks he's delivered throughout his tenure, both from that album and prior.
