We're giving away a pair of tickets for each remaining city on "The Beach House" tour-- catch Joe Moses hit the stage with Ty Dolla $ign, Mila J and Bobby Brackins!
This week we keep it short and sweet for y'all. We've got four cuts from upstarts in music, who all deliver vastly different sounds, from the indie-kinda-rap OnCue spits, to the r'n'b ish JMSN delivers, to the '90s sounding rap from Dillon Cooper. We also threw in a cut from Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks.
THE RULES ARE SIMPLE:1) Follow @HotNewHipHop on Instagram 2) Repost the below image on Instagram with #HOTNEW @hotnewhiphop*TIP: Try to get as many likes on your repost. 3) Winners will be chosen at random at the end of February and contacted via Instagram. The winners will also be announced on the next contest article in March.
Lloyd Banks released his anticipated mixtape, V6, last week, proving once again that he can hold his own solo. Although the G-Unit member has reportedly not spoken to 50 Cent in almost a year, it seems he doesn't need too. This last release was stronger than Fif's previous release. This is Banks' second project in the past eight months, following Cold Corner 2 in November, which
You may know 50 Cent from a variety of movies. You may know him for his ventures in the businesses of boxing, energy drinks, or clothing. But if you're like us, you know him for his early 2000s rap bangers.
Today HNHH is kicking off a new monthly (we've decided on monthly rather than weekly) series, aptly titled Top 10 Best HNHH Comments. It will feature the editor's pick of favorite comments seen on the site, gathered during the weeks. The result will be posted on the last Friday of the month.Everyone is probably aware that HNHH commenters are unique in
Underrated Audio is back on our mission to supply you with exciting new music you may have missed upon initial browsing, from artists who haven't quite broken the mainstream. The talent is there, the quality uncut.
Entrepreneur, actor, and Grammy Award winning recording artist, Nelly has become a brand due to giving listeners chart-topping hit after hit while maintaining impressive album sales. Ruling the early 2000’s with his smooth flow, southern swag, catchy
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 all began in 2010 as a one-day festival with a flyer that looked more fit for a club appearance at a Jamaica, Queens nightclub than for an event that would end up hosting Jay Z and Eminem.
When the Miami Heat won Game 7 of this year's NBA Finals in Miami, American Airlines Arena exploded with jubilation and the wild celebration began. Before heading out to the club and buying 100s of bottles of custom Miami Heat champagne, the team poured into the locker room. Heat fan, and friend of LeBron, rapper Drake tried to enter in the media entrance and was famously denied access.
Underrated Audio aims to provide you with some dope looks from the last seven days, that flew under most peoples' radars. While they may have received front-page placement on HNHH, they didn't get as many views as they deserve, so we shine a little more light on them right here.
So that does it. This is the final 140 Bars Or Less of the year. While many were shedding melancholic tears at the year's final days and others totally checked out because of holiday festivities, the news kept coming in to give a fitting end to one of the most divisive years in recent memory.
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.
Defining a “classic” is no easy task. The first factor is obviously the quality of the music. Here we ask the basic questions: Are there any unnecessary tracks? Does the production impress without outshining the lyrics? The usual surface stuff that’s easy to assess on two full listens. After the surface level is cleared, an album has to separate itself from the pack.
In November, Atlanta rapper Trinidad James caused a firestorm with comments he made while performing in Brooklyn, New York City. After multiple rappers (most notably Maino) called him out for stating that ATL rappers run NYC musically, the Def Jam signee finally admitted he chose the wrong venue.
There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific bars are often overlooked. This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.
After the awards, the celebration was in full swing around town last night. Highlights include Jay-Z actually drinking from his award, and party photos of Chris Brown, Nas, 2 Chainz, Rihanna, Usher, Trinidad James - all enjoying the festivities.Check out some highlight photos from the 55th Annual Grammy Awards after parties below.
After a big first quarter, May has been kind of a slump month for releases, as there's tons of noteworthy projects planned for this summer, but the last few weeks have mostly been dominated by singles, videos and news.
French Montana was on the cover of FADER magazine where they did a cover story on his return to his native home of Morocco. The story is an in depth look at French Montana the person, and depicts the first time he had been back to Morocco since leaving it for New York with his family as a teenager.
Things turned down a few notches after last week, which isn't a bad thing considering how crazy that week was. Kanye West returned to The Breakfast Club, and that was pretty much the biggest thing. We're still on the look out for his album and Big Sean's Dark Sky Paradise. Until their drop (or next week), check out 140 Bars Or Less.

There was no simmering MMG beef to light up the hip-hop conversation this week and unfortunately Meek Mill is still in jail. But life still goes on in this week's 140 Bars Or Less: Tweets Of The Week.
