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.
Like with Drizzy's Take Care art, people were polarized with their thoughts on it. Is it dope? Is it weird? Is it art? We'll let you have that discussion in the comments. For now, click through some of the best memes we found...
2014 may have been a terrible year for hip-hop in terms of record sales, but don't let the numbers fool you into thinking the year was uneventful. In this case, the numbers most definitely do lie. Aside from numerous relationship gossip, 2014 saw the return of Lil Boosie, the rise of August Alsina, and the (maybe) beginning of the end for Cash Money Records. The following news stories were among...

Jennifer Lopez came through last night with her highly anticipated music video for her "Booty (Remix)," featuring equally-blessed-with-booty Iggy Azalea. The visual comes on the heels of Nicki Minaj's over-the-top "Anaconda" music video, and so comparisons were inevitable. Both songs advocate the bigger the booty, the better. So for today's Hotties feature, we're bringing back the "Hottie Vs....

Art is often a collaborative process. Hip-hop is no exception. You know that feeling you get when two of your favorite artists work together? It’s amazing, right? We need to pursue that feeling. Some people were just meant to work together, and sometimes they need us to remind them of this. Today we’re going through a list of collaboration albums that we, as a hip-hop community, need....

The A$AP Mob isn’t really a mob, you know.
“Mob” denotes unruliness, panic, chaos and lawlessness in an unorganized mass. Nothing could be farther from what this Harlem collective actually is, because the so-called “mob” has a leader.
His name is A$AP Rocky and even though he wasn’t around for the founding of the group, he has served as the Mob’s...

“The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”
― Sun Tzu, The Art of War
To be dissed in rap is nothing new. Whether it’s your flow, fashion sense or recent actions, name one MC who doesn’t have a target on his or her back for any rival rhymesayer to take a shot at.
Ready, aim…but wait!
When engaging in war, the objective is to...
On Animal Ambition, 50 Cent returns to the old street-ready sound that made him a household name back in 2003. Unfortunately, a lot has changed in hip-hop since 50’s debut. With the rise of Kanye West (or more particularly 808s & Heartbreak), the genre has become more emotive—more artistically diverse and interesting. Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Kid CuDi and even Future to an extent...
While we usually focus on American hip-hop music here at HNHH, we thought it would be nice to shed the spotlight on some non-American rappers for once. From Spain to Australia, cool rap music definitely exists in other countries.
We started with some English rappers to wet your palate before diving in to some underground Korean hip-hop and even German hip-hop. We touched on Hilltop Hoods...

In the age of the internet it seems everybody can be a rapper, or at least make a feeble attempt at so doing. It may seem hard to find real talent with the game cluttered by generic, wanna-be, or insignificant rappers. That's not to say that ill emcees don't exist out there-- they obviously do, but sometimes they get overlooked 'cause some mainstream fish...

For rappers, having a dope ride is more than just a mode of transportation. Yes, it does mean no more riding the bus. But purchasing a brand new whip is symbolic of their rise to the top. Bugattis, Chevrolet Impalas, Aston Martins, and more luxury vehicles come with a hefty pricetag. If you can afford it, you’re probably living the life. Plus if you've got a nice whip, the ladies will...
