A few NBA players have made headlines this summer for their off-court antics which has led to fines, suspensions, and even gone to court. Michael Beasley was charged with marijuana possession (again) and now may be cut by the Suns.
There are only two new entries within the top 10 of the Billboard 200 this week, and they belong to two rappers: ScHoolboy Q and Kid Cudi. As we said last week, Q was projected to move 150-160k, but fell slightly under that by moving 138,950 copies opening week. This was nevertheless an extremely strong showing from the TDE rapper, which gave him his first #1 debut as well as that of the label's.
The MTV VMAs took place last night, and as per usual, the eventful night was jam-packed with photo-ops. There were performances by Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, Nicki Minaj and more, and many-a-star was in attendance.
The egos and morals of some professional athletes are seriously bloated and twisted, as evidenced during the annual offseason circus of free agency and trade demands we're again cycling through. While players handle their situations questionably time and time again, their backwardness can have serious implications for the teams rolling the dice with them.
Slaughterhouse finally performed at the Well in Brooklyn on September 8th, after the concert initially was delayed. Although it still rained a bit during the show, the performance was well-recieved and HotNewHipHop was able to catch up with (most) of the Slaughterhouse boys after the show. Fans may have noticed 1/4 of the super
Here’s a countdown of what HotNewHipHop readers we’re listening to the most this week, according to our Top 100 chart. 10) Flying Lotus ft. Kendrick Lamar - Eyes Above K-Dot collaborated with free-jazz beatsmith and all-around musical madman Flying Lotus on FlyLo’s latest album You’re Dead! with the frantic track “Never Catch Me.”
With the rise of social media, we can only wonder if artists would have the balls to say the things they say via Instagram and/or Twitter in real ass life. The social media age has made it all too easy for artists and the average person alike to throw shade whenever they please, and then, when things get a bit rough, hit 'delete.' Fortunately, most of the time, we catch it.
Exclusive Interview: Nipsey Hussle Talks On His Partnership With DJ Skee, MMG, And What's Next Feb 20, 2012 at 03:59pm 438 Views
Last week Nipsey Hussle decided to let go X-tra Laps, which consisted of a slew of tracks that didn't make it onto The Marathon Continues, making his fans and blogs extremely happy. It also reminded us why we love Nipsey. We were able to reach him on the phone to talk about what the future holds, and also discuss his start in the rap game.
Former athletes and entertainers are becoming synonymous with the word "broke". Many athletes have signed lofty contracts and lost it all. Much like Mike Tyson. A vast majority of players aren't financially responsible which ultimately leaves them bankrupt. Some have gambled their money away or carried an entourage too big for their checkbook.
Tyga released the cover art for his forthcoming mixtape Well Done 3, which is the latest instalment in his Well Done series. Check out the gallery below for his latest and past cover art in his mixtape series.
Blame it on self-employment, shady labels or a simple lack of knowledge about this country's impenetrable tax system-- rappers have historically had problems with unpaid taxes. Time and time again, we've seen stories of various artists in the game getting hit with either a tax lien or tax evasion charges from the IRS and owing the government a ton of their hard-earned money.
Being an NBA player leaves lots of potential for partying. Not only are players essentially off work for a third of the year, but - for the most part- have large egos that love the limelight and even larger wallets that love spilling money frivolously; as Meek Mill put it, "Young & Gettin' It" .
This may make you feel a little old, but Kid Cudi's career-launching mixtape A Kid Named Cudi is about to turn seven years old. While the "Day 'n' Nite" artist has released much music since then, many fans long for the alternative-minded rap the Cleveland kid layed down on his first two albums.
Introduced to most of us via her dope Cloud 19 tape last summer, Bay Area native Kehlani has kept her grind strong since then, now gearing up to release a follow-up on April 28th. Before we get You Should Be Here, we're out to preach to the unconverted and convince you that Kehlani deserves to be on your iPod.
Yesterday we kicked off our month of the Hottest of 2013 with the Most Searched Artists On HNHH. That's just the beginning though, as you can expect a lot more from us within the coming weeks, leading up to the New Year. To give you guys an idea of what to expect and to drum up some excitement, we're gunna give you a break-down of what we're dropping and when. See the full list below.
The latest single off Rihanna’s upcoming album, “Bitch Better Have My Money” has jacked anticipation up to another level. The track is a hit that has been making noise through social media posts, tweets and conversations since she dropped a snippet just last week.
I'm going to assume everyone's seen the XXL Freshman 2012 list, unless you're seriously out of touch with the internet...in which case you probably wouldn't be on HNHH in the first place. The always controversial list was once again, well, controversial. Many wondered where ASAP Rocky was (he declined) and everyone had their own thoughts about who should or shouldn't have been on the list.
Last week, Pro Era released the triumphant sequel to their debut mixtape, 2012's The Secc$ Tap.e. The new tape, showcasing tracks from up-and-comers like Dessy Hinds, Rokamouth and Nyck Caution as well as the crew's more established stars (Joey Bada$$, CJ Fly and Kirk Knight), proves that Pro Era is one of the deepest crews in the game right now.
Karl Marx taught that capitalism despite increasing the productivity of the world’s economy would nevertheless create a social chasm. On one hand there’s the bourgeoisie who own and control the labor, and on the other is the proletariat who sell their labor. In the music industry this problem is evident.
Rihanna has revealed behind-the-scenes photos of the upcoming video for her "Pour It Up" single via Instagram, which will apparently drop next week. The Barbadian songstress can be seen smoking a blunt while rocking a blonde wig, purple eyebrows and and a fishnet dress.
We saw some wacky outfits last night at the VMAs, but none (well, maybe Miley Cyrus') top Riff Raff and 2 Chainz choices. Between snakeskin pants, pink shoes, and all over patterns head to toe, its hard to pick a winner for who wore it worst.Click through to see both outfits, and decide using our "cop or not" rating.
Chris Bosh gets caught in more corky and unflattering moments than any other player in the NBA. This has resulted in the Miami Heat power forward becoming one of the most "memed" players in the league. Jokes about being a mascot as well as an ostrich and dinosaur have followed Bosh from Toronto to Miami. B
After being very public about their affection for each other, it appears Andre Drummond and Jennette McCurdy are an actual “item” or whatever you’d like to call it, now. The two hung out last week after exchanging flirty messages on Twitter. They enjoyed it so much they went to Disneyland together afterwards, with Dre posting various Vines, and pics from the outing. Now TMZ caught up wit
