The craziest pimp-outs on Xzibit and MTV's "Pimp My Ride."
Battle rap is quickly growing as a culture. What was almost completely relegated to street corners and Youtube a few years ago has garnered national recognition, more tv programming, Pay-Per-View events, and other attention of the mainstream media. Hip Hop icons like Eminem and Snoop Dogg have put on events for the battle scene and at this rate things can only continue to expand.
After a long wait, SURF is finally here. The debut LP from The Social Experiment (aka SOX) is billed as Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment despite the fact that the band’s biggest star is obviously Chance The Rapper. The album features, although they aren’t listed on the iTunes version of the free album, the likes of J.
Hype Williams may have only directed four videos in 2014, but that doesn't mean we can't all remember a time when every dope hip-hop video seemed to have Hype's fingerprints on it. Countless legendary MCs collaborated with Hype Williams, including the likes of Jay Z, Notorious B.I.G., Nas, Busta Rhymes and A Tribe Called Quest, and also R&B stars like Blackstreet, Aaliyah, Usher and Mary J.
This week on Charts Don't Lie we see the Christmas spirit in effect, as Mariah Carey's 1994 album Merry Christmas soars back up the charts. We're also seeing a relatively quick decent for the MMG boss Rick Ross, and a relatively low debut for his counterpart Omarion. Wu-Tang Clan arrive on the charts with A Better Tomorrow receiving around 25k streams and sales, although they get one-upped by Ms.
The Bill Cosby saga continued over the weekend when the New York Times uncovered additional deposition transcripts in which the comedian presented himself as an "unapologetic, cavalier playboy, someone who used a combination of fame, apparent concern and powerful sedatives in a calculated pursuit of young women." Since Barbara Bowman's November 2014 op-ed in the Washington Post
Lamar Odom & Khloe Kardashian Are Selling Their Mansion, Probably Getting Divorced Nov 8, 2013 at 11:34am 160 Views
The Lamar Odom saga continues as reports are that he and Khloe Kardashian are selling their home. As has been reported in several articles, Lamar has been struggling with substance abuse, and this had driven him and Khloe apart. Although she has been supportive and wants to help him get on the right track reports say that Khloe wants a divorce and that one is in the works.
Business moves quick, and that's no exception for the rap world. From the hottest new signings to movie deals to album pushbacks, the industry is constantly in motion. It can be hard to keep up with at times, so we've consolidated all of the must-hear information from the past month, all in one place.
Hailing from Gary, Indiana, Freddie Gibbs moved to Los Angeles in 2006 after he signed to Interscope Records. Things didn't work out with Interscope and Gibbs inked a deal with Young Jeezy's CTE label. Things didn't work out there either, but with the help of Madlib, Freddie Gibbs was on the tip of everyone's tongue last year, and founded his own imprint, ESGN.
Drake was the first one to strike in this ongoing beef with Meek Mill, delivering a vicious combo move in the form of "Charged Up" and "Back To Back." Last night, Meek finally mustered a response, dropping "Wanna Know." Compared to the explosive aftermath of "Back To Back," and even the less-amped reactions to "Charged Up," the internet's collective response to Meek's new track has been
Do you think that LeBron James is better than Michael Jordan was, or can eventually be better than Jordan? Think about your stance for a second, now decide if you would stab someone if they disagreed.This is what happened at a bar in Baden Pa., as two men got in a heated sports argument.
The holidaze are finally here, and instead of waking up and giddily running to the tree like we did on Christmas morning, we lethargically roll over and smoke trees, and go down the lazy river that is 4/20.
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.
Last week, the world got an unprecedented look inside of Schoolboy Q's various addictions on Oxymoron, an album named after the painkiller Oxycodone. It's most certainly an album that can be categorized as "drug rap," making it the latest in the long, storied history of rapper's infatuation with, selling of, and popularizing of various controlled and illegal substances.
Sir Michael Rocks is not new when it comes to this rapping thing. He's been doing it for almost ten years now, yet he can still be considered a young'n at the current age of 26 (and in fact, he's often grouped in with the young'ns, something we discuss during our interview). When he started out with Chuck Inglish as The Cool Kids back in 2005, he was too ahead of his time.
"Free Gucci" Anthems: 14 Tracks That Call For Gucci Mane's Freedom Jun 23, 2015 at 12:37pm 11,466 Views
Yesterday, we got wind of a rumor that Gucci Mane might be a free man(e) come July 11th. The 1017 rapper's been incarcerated since September 2013-- first for a probation violation, then for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon-- and although he's been able to drop more music than arguably anyone else during these past 21 months, his presence has been sorely missed in the rap game.
Someone once remarked that Chicago and Atlanta had replaced New York City and Los Angeles as the capitals of modern rap music. As blasphemous as that claim might seem, it’s 100% true in 2014. Atlanta has been a dominant force in hip-hop for over a decade now, but since 2010, it has experienced a lot of change.
Miss Info & Laura Stylez Talk On Hot 97's Summer Jam 2014 & More May 28, 2014 at 12:59pm 6,002 Views
Summer Jam is right around the corner, literally. The annual Hot 97 rap event goes down this Sunday, June 1st, at the Met Life stadium. We surmise that this year will be just as eventful as any other year, or perhaps more so, due to the return of once-banned 50 Cent and once-insulted Nicki Minaj.
The evolutions of Donald Glover and Childish Gambino appeared mutually exclusive until recently, with the masses not completely sold on either. Glover was either "that guy from that show,” or “Troy!!!!” The Gambino character was viewed as a playful, non-threatening side project, by fans of Glover’s work, and other rappers.
Dr. Dre's Compton has hit most hip hop-lovers speakers by this point, and one of the most defining characteristics of the album are the largely unknown artists that make up the features.
HBK (Heart Break Kids) are a crew from the San Francisco Bay Are who count rapper/producer Iamsu! as their de facto leader. Formed in 2008 by Su and producers Chief and P-Lo, the crew went on to add Sage The Gemini, Skipper, CJ, Rossi, Dave Steezy, Jay Ant, Kool John and the production team The Invasion (consisting of Iamsu!, P-Lo, Kuya Beats, Jay Ant, and Chief).
For Vado, Sinatra represents much more than just another one of the several tapes he has dropped over the past few years. The smooth flowing Harlem representer is in the midst of a crucial part of his rap career. The Dipset affiliate went from NYC --> MIA to link up with DJ Khaled and in 2013 he signed with Khaled's We the Best label.
Eminem found his way back to #1 on the Billboard 200, after spending a week at #2. The rapper sold the same amount that some rappers do opening week (if not more) and he's in his third week on shelves with MMLP2.
It’s always a beautiful thing when Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka get on a record together. Let’s be clear, these two men aren’t the most lyrical cats in the game, but they bring that bravado and street lingo that we all love and appreciate.
For years, we have tried to decode the enigma that is Wale. Rather than being lauded for his gift of gab, he's been overshadowed by his shill cries for acceptance. You see, Wale always had the skills to be a special artist in hip-hop. Nobody questioned his motor in the booth. Nobody questioned his scintillating wordplay.
