Exclusive: French Montana Talks On Success, Harry Fraud & "Excuse My French" Aug 10, 2012 at 04:08 PM 29,111 Views
HNHH caught up with French Montana in Toronto before Drake's huge OVO Fest went down. French is a shining example of that whole “hard work pays off” saying, as the man was grinding for a long time in New York before receiving commerical or mainstream success. In our interview, we ask him about this new-found success. We also find out how he originally got in touch with a
The BET Hip-Hop Awards always result in a lot of commentary the next day, from critics to fans, everyone has their thoughts on the show and in particular, on the BET cyphers.
We all know that rappers often get a bad rep with the press. Accusations of criminal activity, encouraging violence, or just plain bad behavior are common for hip hop artists. Selfless and generous acts by hip hop stars seldom get the coverage or attention they deserve.
As a former gourmet chef of Albanian and Jewish descent who raps over a Tracy Chapman guitar riff at most of his shows, Action Bronson has always been a unique presence in hip-hop. Never has this been more pronounced, though, than at last week’s South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas.
First there were two boys, now there is 2 Chainz. After taking a break from Playaz Circle, Tity Boi also took a new name. Armed with the extra glossy moniker he hit the feature circuit and appeared on over seventy-five tracks in two years. Furthermore, he toured with Drake and talked
On paper, the two new Kendrick Lamar songs we've received in the past six months couldn't be more different. The first, "i", was deemed a departure from his acclaimed 2012 album, good kid, m.A.A.d city, and compared to Pharrell's "Happy" and OutKast's "Hey Ya" in varying degrees of disdain by fans on Twitter.
As yesterday's flash mob in NYC proved, the A$AP name can still send fans into frenzied riots.
Meek Mill has been through hell and back. He’s only 26-years-old but on the streets, age-wise that makes him a veteran. Growing up in the gritty, unforgiving city of Philadelphia, Meek, real name Robert Williams, fell into the same trap that a lot of his friends and many others in his age group that grew up in the same type of environment.
In the two weeks since the release of Kendrick Lamar’s heralded good kid m.A.A.d. city, many pundits have lauded the technical and creative prowess of the work as nothing short of an instant classic. This could very well prove true in coming years. While the Compton emcee’s masterpiece marinates, HNHH takes a step back to look at 10 of raps greatest, most
Wale may be a victim of bad timing. While most rap fans were in their glory last week with the release of albums from Kanye West, J. Cole and Mac Miller, others are feverishly looking forward to Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail, which is dropping on Independence Day. The release date of Wale's third album is stuck in the middle.
Rick Ross is excessive by nature, sometimes when it's not even necessary. To be fair, he was forced to be this way after the feud with 50 Cent and being outed as a correctional officer through those infamous photos. After the flames, Ross decided to expand his myth and rattle off one No. 1 album after another (the critically acclaimed Teflon Don is the only album to peak at No. 2).
Two days back we had an article about the origins of certain flows, and some of our ever reliable commenters took it to be some sort of ranking of the best flows, which was not the case. The entire point of the article was to point out that some flows are influenced by region, and some by other artists.
It's pretty common knowledge that the Notorious B.I.G came from humble beginnings and had his fair share of struggles. His undeniable talent enabled him to quickly make a name for himself in the hip-hop world. Wallace soon left the world of drug-dealing behind for a better life in music.
Following the release of T.I.’s last two somewhat lackluster albums, 2010's No Mercy and 2012's Trouble Man, combined with the rise of new age rap stars like Drake, Kendrick Lamar, J.
Review: Rich Homie Quan's "I Promise I Will Never Stop Going In" Dec 5, 2013 at 06:30 PM 27,865 Views
Rich Homie Quan dominated the summer with his smash single “Type of Way.” The song made its way onto the Billboard chart and helped catapult the Atlanta rapper’s career (and bank account) into a new stratosphere.
There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked (with the exception of the already infamous verse Kendrick dropped on Big Sean's "Control" this week). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.
Get Home Safely, Dom Kennedy’s second studio album and follow up to last year's Yellow Album, demonstrates Dom Kennedy’s unique ability to weave highly accessible stories into his lyrics without compromising intelligibility. Actually, it’s not a trait unique to him. Artists like Slick Rick, Snoop and Nas are known for this same technique.
Tyler, the Creator's previous two solo projects were critically-acclaimed pieces of work. The success of Bastard and Goblin allowed him to garner the crazed fan base that follow his every move, but with Wolf, the Los Angeles native has moved on to something new.
We've entered the month of December, which means not only is Christmas approaching but so is the New Year. As we did last year, we'll be rounding up the Hottest of 2013 from mixtapes to albums to singles and much more. To kick off our year-end lists we've got a simple enough one, which rounds up the ten Most Searched Artists On HNHH Of 2013. Y'all have no one to blame but yourselves for this!
There's no denying the inspiration rappers draw from movies, whether the sound is on or off.
When Gucci Mane released his World War 3 series on iTunes last month, it was merely a hint of what was to come. The first shots were fired on September 7th, when Guwop and Waka Flocka engaged in a Twitter argument. As more names got involved , the feud grew nastier. The peak of Gucci’s Twitter rant came on September 9th, when he put moguls such as Jeezy, Nicki Minaj, and T.I. on blast.
Soon Jay-Z is going to be on the charts, undoubtedly dominating the top spot, which belonged to J. Cole this week. Jay-Z's new album has made waves not only for it's creative rollout but for changing the rules of RIAA, in order to ensure the album went platinum before it even dropped, unlike our other chart-toppers this week, who are working their way to platinum the old-fashioned way.
Kid Cudi has never been one to hold his tongue or boast modestly. The Cleveland native is infamous for his onstage rants and mid-performance meltdowns. So it should come as no surprise, when talking about his fourth studio album, Cudi likened Indicud to Dr. Dre’s classic 2001 album. A bold statement indeed.
Arguably one of the most influential artists of our time, Kanye West has always played by his own rules-- evidenced in his new album Yeezus. And it's certainly no different when it comes to his fashion choices.
