J. Cole and Wale have collaborated on numerous occasions. With both rappers packing punchy lyrics, we examine their past collaborative records and explore who outdid the other.
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.
As far DJs go, there's no one who sells more music than DJ Khaled. Khaled Khaled (no typo) is far from just a DJ though. The Miami hip-hop magnate is the founder and CEO of We the Best Music Group, which includes artists like Ace Hood and dancehall superstar Movado, and the President of Def Jam South, which helped revive Def Jam as a whole toward the end of the '00s.
Forget mixtapes and albums, some of the hottest verses in hip hop come right from the offices of Hot 97 via Funkmaster Flex's famous freestyle sessions. Whether artists go right off the dome, kick something they plan on using later, or a combination of both, rappers always bring their A-game for Flex.
With the evolution of producer software, everyone can make beats on their computer. It doesn't take a lot of money or studio time to learn how to chop up samples, loop drum patterns, and create something great. And we're finding more and more beatmakers are making quality tracks.
For Mother's Day we're offering up a fun quiz to see how well you know your rapper baby mamas. Rappers are prone to having multiple baby mamas, and so it can be a task to keep up with them. Not only that, but given the close-knit music industry, it's not uncommon for rappers to exchange baby mamas, or at least, take on another rapper's lady after the couple breaks up.
Have you ever scrolled through Instagram and instantly bursted into uncontrollable laughter? Raised your eyebrow? Scratched your head? Instantly smiled? Thought, "Damn. That's dope."? Stared at your phone? Did an instant repost? HNHH is sure you've answered yes to at least one of those questions.
A$AP Rocky Apologizes To Jason Collins, For Seeming Homophobic At MTV VMAs Sep 10, 2013 at 10:57am 1 View
During the 2013 MTV Video Awards, A$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
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. The slides above are listed chronologically, starting with King James' first signature, the one that started it all, the Nike Air Zoom Generation.The experience ta
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.
It would seem like a no brainer, rap and advertising belong together, but the ad industry didn't always recognize what hip-hop could really do for marketing. This all changed in the 1980s. Each side began realizing what the other could for them. Rappers could help boost sales, and rappers could, of course make money.
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".
Since it's evolution from the late 1980s, hip-hop music has gone from strength to strength. Nothing tells the story of this success better than seeing the facts by numbers. We often hear about first week album sales, and then there's always Forbes annual break-down of the wealthiest celebrities, but after that, we forget about it.
The DJ Clark Kent x Nike SB Dunk Low "112" is scheduled to release on November 26th with a $98 price tag. The SB takes on the 112 theme head-on with it's classic silver, neon, and elephant print design. Neon laces, outsole and branding are electrifying sitting alongside the 3M silver upper.
Henry Laufer, better known as Shlohmo, is a founding member of L.A.'s WeDidIt collective, one of the most forward-thinking labels in electronic music, and, within in that world, the crew with the most crossover hip-hop appeal. Other than Shlohmo, members like RL Grime and Ryan Hemsworth have produced for Deniro Farrar, Big Sean, Tinashe, and even Pitbull.
Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx has been celebrated as a classic for some time, but one record from the Wu Tang Chef's debut album has managed to stay on the tip of our tongues over the last 20 years.
As Drake said after he concluded his first interview with Nardwuar, a Canadian man who rocks a tartan hat and calls himself the "Human Serviette," "this guy is a legend." There's really no better way to put it: this guy's interviewed everyone from Nirvana to N*E*R*D, and always seems to unearth facts that no other interviewer in the game can.
While anticipation grows for A$AP Rocky's second album's release, At.Long.Last.ASAP (A.L.L.A), Rocky has been up to a lot more than just rapping. Since the release of Long.Live.ASAP in 2013, Rocky has been on hiatus, at least, from the rapsphere. Even before he dropped his debut album, he started experimenting in the business of fashion.
Last year in March, Kid Ink reached a big milestone for a new artist: his single “Show Me” featuring Chris Brown went double Platinum.
Fifteen years of Shady Records represents an unusual time for rap music, transitioning out of the shiny suit era and into a bubble featuring new names. Aside from D12 and Obie Trice releases, the label’s existence was mostly tied to Eminem signing a certain Queens MC.
Yesterday (May 19), Drake announced the schedule for the second annual OVO-run Houston Appreciation Weekend (HAW), which kicks off tomorrow (May 21) with a Bun B tribute event and ends Sunday (May 24) with a Drizzy/Future "Jungle" show and a Boosie Badazz after-party.
This week, Chief Keef caused a stir by releasing two tracks with Andy Milonakis, a comedian who'd formerly rapped alongside RiFF RAFF and Dirt Nasty in the group Three Loco. The man who came up as the poster boy for Chicago's violent drill scene was chilling out a bit and embracing humor with these tracks, or so it seemed.
"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.
As a former gourmet chef of Albanian and Jewish descent who raps over a Tracy Chapman guitar riff at most of his shows, Action Bronson has always been a unique presence in hip-hop. Never has this been more pronounced, though, than at last week’s South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas.
This week we’re seeing a new entry with G-Unit’s The Beast Is G-Unit EP hitting the charts. Although it moved under 20k opening week, we doubt the Unit is too upset.
