Vote on what you think will be the song of the summer!
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.
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 one of the most anticipated segments of the #HOTNEW14 end-of-year rollout, HNHH is pleased to present our top 50 songs of the year. As always, you're gonna have to do some scrolling to find out the #1 hottest record. Whatever your thoughts on 2014's hip-hop landscape, there was a lot going on and a lot to keep track of. Rappers started singing and singers started rapping.
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.
Review: Earl Sweatshirt's "I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside" Mar 29, 2015 at 03:42pm 21,347 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.
The final week of sales recorded from Tuesday happened last week, and this week's numbers are a weird transitional phase, tacking on a couple of days to bring them around to Friday, resulting in a one-time only 11-day tally. Thus, the results for this cycle are simply beefed up numbers from last week. For the most part, everyone pretty much stays in there place.
Like all social media platforms, Instagram has become a hugely popular device not only for the average person but for celebrities and entertainers as well. In this day and age, a person's worth can be determined by how many people like their Insta photo or Facebook status.
Cash Money is an indisputable empire, and at the helm, sits Birdman--and, behind the scenes, his brother Slim. In its nearly 25 years of existence, Cash Money has become one of the most successful hip-hop labels of all-time, though many of its living legends look back on their Cash Money days with disdain. When Cash Money and Young Money joined forces, the empire looked to be unstoppable.
Fabolous has always done a solid job at blending in with his environment. Whether he’s cutting with DJ Clue and The Neptunes in 2001 or jiving with Rich Homie Quan in 2015, he’s done a phenomenal job at adapting to change and staying relevant, something that is easier said than done.
A Track-By-Track Guide To Kendrick Lamar's "To Pimp A Butterfly" Mar 16, 2015 at 07:17pm 72,029 Views
Last night, Kendrick Lamar, or someone at Interscope, perhaps, released To Pimp a Butterfly a week ahead of its initial March 23 release date. Already the most anticipated album of the year, Kendrick's follow-up to Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City is unlike anything he's ever done, though it could've only come from the man himself.
"I'm Done Standing Up For These N****s!" - Clipper Matt Barnes, After Ejection Nov 14, 2013 at 05:11pm 1 View
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."

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
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.
To say that the dawn of drill feels like yesterday would be generous at best. It's been roughly three years since Chicago's rap explosion took the world by storm, and now it feels like you're sifting through the rubble. So many promising talents have struggled to live up to the hype, gotten lost in the blogosphere, or become unrecognizable.
Machine Gun Kelly is known to be outspoken in his words and behavior, so for our latest sit-down with the rapper, after he visited DJ Skee's Skee Live TV show, we decided to get MGK to open up about his many and various sexual encounters.
It’s hard out there for the life of a rappers wife or that ride-or-die chick. Once you beat out the competition; the gold diggers, video vixens and schemers, and officially accept the title, your public image changes, usually for the worse.
Guest features have been an important part of hip hop throughout its history, and have become increasingly popular in recent years. It's a great way for artists to cross promote between each other's fan bases, as well as give each track a signature shakeup for a verse or two. The only problem with letting other rappers spit, is once in a while they body you on your own shit. See what I did there?
Tupac Shakur's influence can't really be measured by any sort of numbers. Sure, he's had five #1 albums and countless singles, but his impact goes deeper than that; it even goes deeper than rap.
When Young Money released their We Are Young Money album four years ago, they were undeniably the hottest team in hip-hop. Lil Wayne's army was young and hungry, as artists like Tyga and Nicki Minaj had yet to develop into superstars. Veterans such as Mystikal and Busta Rhymes have since joined the Young Money militia, though have failed to make a lasting impact with the group.
Logic Speaks On Being Biracial & Says He's Working With Hit-Boy On Debut Album Nov 7, 2013 at 01:03pm 15,932 Views
Logic has been on his grind for a long time now, and it's paid off, as he's linked up with Def Jam for a deal while still remaining under the independent label that he came up with, VMG. We caught up with Logic at the beginning of October for Track Breakdown of his single "Two Kings," and we were able to speak to the rising rapper once more when he was on DJ Skee's Skee Live.
We are in the midst of a mini-Nina Simone revival.
