HotNewHipHop presents our first-ever digital cover story with Action Bronson.
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. Hence our new feature.Sometimes it's the picture and sometimes it's the caption.
Hip-hop and professional sports are more similar than you might think. Both fields are competitive, exciting, and allow for great debates. Rappers are often seen interacting with world class athletes, such as Lil Wayne hanging out with Cristiano Ronaldo, 50 Cent breaking bread with Floyd “Money” Mayweather, or Drake taking pictures with whoever won that evening.
HotNewHipHop's On The Come Up series profiles rising stars in the rap game that show strong promise and the will to succeed. Most of the time, they're new to the site but deserve some shine. We will profile artists and producers ranging from those in the deep underground to artists just about to bubble up into the mainstream that you may have missed.
Remix Fix: Kaytranada Puts His Flip On "Kaleidoscope" By BADBADNOTGOOD Nov 18, 2014 at 11:09am 2,105 Views
BADBADNOTGOOD is a jazz trio of young guys who met in 2010 while attending Humber Music College in Toronto, Ontario. Matthew Tavares, Alexander Sowinski, and Chester Hansen uploaded to YouTube their version of an Odd Future song "The Odd Future Sessions Part 1" and it went viral thanks to help of Tyler, The Creator (who became a fan after hearing the track).
HNHH Exclusive: Ace Hood's "Trials & Tribulations" Listening Session Jun 20, 2013 at 05:28pm 189 Views
Ace Hood seems to have finally found his lane within the rap game, after his career stalled for a moment. The falter didn’t discourage Ace, instead, motivated him to get to where he is today-- affiliated with YMCMB, We The Best, and MMG, although currently signed to DJ Khaled’s We The Best label.
MMG is beginning to look like a truly unstoppable force as even natural disasters can't seem to stop them, or even slow them down. A few weeks ago we got the release of one of the most anticipated albums of the year in Kendrick Lamar’s GKMC, which has performed mightily in the context of today’s rap album sales. Now we get a look at Maybach Music Group’s
50 Cent entered the Billboard 200 this week, with Animal Ambition moving more than the projected amount, although it's still not the numbers Fif used to do. It's independent numbers though, with a showing of 47,000 units. It will likely be quiet on the charts until we approach June 24th, when we've got multiple albums, including ones from Ab-Soul and Riff Raff, dropping.
Nothing gets us more turnt up than a fire new collaboration between two (or more) dope artists, especially if they haven't made a lot of music together before.
Exclusive "Under The Influence" BTS With Berner, Wiz Khalifa, A$AP Rocky, Trinidad James And More Jul 25, 2013 at 10:58am 90 Views
Want a glimpse of what it's like to experience the "Under The Influence Of Music" Tour up close? Watch Episode 1 of HNHH and Taylor Gang's behind-the-scenes look at life on the road. In this segment, Berner gets with the fans, Trinidad James plays hoops, Wiz gets under the influence, Macklemore goes skateboarding and A$AP Rocky just wants to party.
OLD is Detroit emcee Danny Brown's third studio project, released on October 8th via Fool's Gold Records. The audience rating on our review of the album stands at 85%, and we feel it's one of the better offerings of 2013, both sonically and lyrically.
Beyonce beat the system with the unexpected drop of her fifth, self-titled album, which shocked the internet, the media and music fans alike. Although B's team had recently told us to expect an album soon, (Ne-Yo almost ruined the surprise as well), no one suspected it would happen this soon.
This feature highlights a hand-picked selection of some of the bigger tracks of the week. We have chosen a few of the tracks that landed within our top 25 most played, focusing on those that stood out, and left room for discussion.
Halftime at any sporting event is usually the time when folks go to the bathroom, get refreshments and talk amongst themselves about the game. For Waka Flocka Flame, halftime is no time for an intermission. Instead, it’s a period to continue carrying the heat.
Bizzy Crook Speaks On Hitting Studio With Mannie Fresh & Lloyd, "No Hard Feelings" Mixtape Apr 23, 2014 at 01:02pm 2,433 Views
Bizzy Crook is probably a name you're becoming more and more familiar with, as he makes his way across the U.S. alongside Kid Ink and King Los for the "My Own Lane" tour, not to mention recent leaks like "Bands In A Depression" featuring OVO's OB OBrien.
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh huh honey."

It was 15 years ago today that Dr. Dre released 2001, his 20-track, star-studded, cinematic LP. “It's a movie, with different varieties of situations. So you've got buildups, touching moments, aggressive moments…It's got everything that a movie needs,” Dre said of the album.
Kid Ink is steadily grinding out videos from his debut album Up & Away.
Pusha T has always paid tribute to the pioneers of the rap game in his music, besides reflecting the influence of the golden era in his style, he's also often flipped classic Rakim lines in his verses, and even went as far as to pay homage to Big Daddy Kane in the title of his latest mixtape.
Let’s face it. Real rap groups today are a rarity in hip-hop.
To help you celebrate your Christmas while maintaing the hip-hop on your playlist, we're providing you with 20 jams that have surfaced over the years, from vintage to brand new, that all contain a reference to today in some way or another.
As we continue to recover from New Year's Eve festivities, memories from the evening are slowly coming back to us.
Self-promoted as a hungry emcee, Ace approaches tracks with a ravenous appetite, and on Body Bag Vol. 2 he devours everything placed in front of him. On “Gutta Back” he introduces the tape’s subject matter; namely, outright arrogance expressed poetically. He gets political on “Wanna Beez” and “Yeen Bout Dat Life,” questioning the candidacy of his opposition.
Last week we saw a solid output of music from artists both big and small. However, Drake took the cake with Nothing Was The Same leaking-- basically all talk revolved around Drizzy. Today let's take a look at five dope tracks that dropped in the past seven days, that are unrelated to the Toronto king. Let us know which underrated rappers you're feeling at the moment.
