We scour the internet for 20 dope throwback photos of some of the most legendary rappers-- together.
After three studio albums and countless mixtapes, it seems Ace Hood is as determined as ever to prove himself with the release of Trials & Tribulations.
Nothing too big transpired on the charts this week when it comes to hip-hop. That's not to say there weren't hip-hop releases-- there most definitely were, however, none could top Drake's Nothing Was The Same at #4 on the Billboard 200. And if DJ Khaled's low sales projections are correct, Khaled probably won't top Drizzy either next week.
Christopher George Latore Wallace, otherwise known as The Notorious B.I.G. or Biggie Smalls, was born at St. Mary’s Hospital in Brooklyn on May 21, 1972. He grew up as an only child in the Clinton Hill area to his parents Voletta Wallace, a Jamaican preschool teacher, and George Latore, a welder and Jamaican politician.
Memorial Day Weekend Recap: Nicki Minaj, Game, Big Sean & More Hit Up Las Vegas May 26, 2014 at 05:40pm 26,420 Views
The long weekend festivities haven't ended just yet, with many people, rappers included, planning to barbecue and relax for their extra day off. A lot of hip-hop artists have sent out tweets and social postings in remembrance of fallen soldiers and those currently fighting for the U.S., and these same artists have updated us with what they've been doing all weekend.
Atlanta, Atlanta, Atlanta. As far as new music goes, in the rap scene, no one is doing it quite like Atlanta. Migos, iLoveMakonnen, Rich Homie Quan, and Young Thug are a few of the bigger names to pop up out of the scene recently, but Father is right up there in that conversation as well.
After a few listens to Nicki Minaj's latest album, The Pinkprint, it is pretty clear that, to a certain extent, she does pay attention to critics. Her last album, 2012's Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, was universally panned in reviews for being disjointed, gimmicky and lackluster, among other things.
Today Juaquin James Malphurs known better to us as Waka Flocka Flame turns 28.
After he proved he was a bankable rapper, 50 Cent started his own imprint and made G-Unit his first priority. For a while Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, Young Buck and Fiddy were consistently putting out quality music that fed the streets. But all good things must come to an end. In the Unit's case, the general fell out with first Young Buck and kicked him out of the group.
Earlier this year, hip-hop bible XXL Magazine featured rappers A$AP Rocky and French Montana on its cover declaring New York rap is back. While the focus of the game has shifted to other parts of the country in the past several years or so, there are some native New York emcees that are doing their part to rep their city.
It’s been a long road to the top for Big Sean. Back in 2005 after hearing Kanye West was going to be at a local radio station in Detroit for an interview, Big Sean headed down there to chance fate. Two years later he signed with G.O.O.D. Music but it wasn’t until 2011 that his debut album Finally Famous would hit the shelves.
We're currently awaiting first week sale numbers for Jeezy's new album, Seen It All, which is supposed to move around 90k-100k. Even though these are just projections at the moment, it's extremely unlikely The Snowman will be able to beat the sales of his last album TM:103 Hustlerz Ambition, which moved 233,000 copies when it dropped three years ago.
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.
For no particular reason other than the fact that animals are fucking cute, we present to you a photo list of rappers chilling with a variety of animals. From the most common, dogs, to baby tigers, penguins, dolphins, parrots and cats, rappers show love for all species, and they also show that no one's too cool for some one-on-one animal time.
“Top 5” lists are often a personal thing. Everyone has their reasons for their top five emcees. Sometimes, those reasons will include “because I said so," or the other go-to "because it’s my list,” When talking personal favorites, your list is your list. Things are different when arguing greatest of all-time however. Certain guys are almost required to be mentioned.
Remember the feeling you got when you heard Kendrick Lamar connect with MC Eiht on "m.A.A.d city" off his debut album good kid, m.A.A.d city? Or what about when Stalley collaborated with Scarface on "Swangin'"?
Before Wiz Khalifa was a household name, he was on the mixtape grind. Before he was selling out stadiums, he was shelling out free material and making fans all over the internet. A few years later, the guy was everywhere.
Top Dawg Entertainment, or TDE for short, is one of the biggest success stories in hip-hop in recent memory. Founded in 2004 by Anthony Tiffith, the label didn't release its first mixtape until 2008, and its first album until 2010, but since then, has reached commercial and critical heights the likes of which most other independent labels couldn't imagine.
No truer words have ever been uttered than the ones Method Man said of Ol' Dirty Bastard on their legendary 36 Chambers album. ODB is truly one of a kind, with absolutely no father to his style. With a name as crazy as his flow, Ol' Dirty Bastard took the world by storm during his 10 year hip-hop takeover.
Before Drake hit the big time, he was another rapper putting out mixtapes trying to get his music out there to the world. (Well, and a Canadian TV star, but that's kind of another story.)
We're all doing it for the Vine these days. Six second videos perfectly capture those funny and sometimes awkward situations whether it’s from a rapper or just the average Joe telling you how things go down in the real world. Watching Vines can become pretty addictive, sometimes you just get mesmerized by the never-ending loop.
Everyone's been talking about Kendrick Lamar and his much lauded debut album, good kid, m.A.A.d city, but we decided to give a little more attention to his collective. Black Hippy epitomizes what a hip-hop collective should be: a group of rappers who can flow together as a group and still maintain a strong individual presence.
We spoke to the pint-sized rapper Honey Cocaine on the set of Dizzy Wright's "Fashion" video shoot, and although the femcee is small, she's not letting that deter her from making a mark in the rap game.
Before he was acting in "Fast and Furious" movies, before he even made music under the name Bow Wow, Shad Moss was a 13-year old rapper known as Lil Bow Wow. The concept of a kid rapper is an interesting anomaly. On one hand, rap is a young man's sport, but on the other side of things, how much knowledge can a boy give you before he can even drive a vehicle?
