    This week the hip-hop underground proves you don't need to be mainstream to top the Billboard 200, at least these days. Two mainstays within the underground movement debuted within the top 10 of the Billboard charts this week.

    The month of April is already wrapping up, even though it seems like it just arrived. We celebrated 4/20 over the weekend, which saw an influx of weed-smoking songs on the site, as expected. Nonetheless, we like think that you can make every day a 4/20, especially when you have the right music. This week UA has four perfect tracks to do so.

Nonetheless, we've come through, with five cuts from last week that were not given all their deserved play time. Rockie Fresh is featured again this week, as he continues his climb from the underground to the...

    Closely linked and even rumored to have been in a relationship with Knicks' super-sub, J.R. Smith, Rihanna isn't only a Knicks fan, she also supports New York's other squad, the Brooklyn Nets (recently she even donned a LeBron jersey at a Heat game so it's fair to assume Ri Ri doesn't have any strong NBA allegiances.)  Rihanna was on hand for the Nets' Game 7 matchup, as they hosted the Chicago...

    Last week we questioned the grip of Will.i.am's influence on the mainstream, with his solo effort, #willpower, moving less than 30k opening week. We could also blame this on the ever-waning sales of albums in general. This week, we get LL Cool J's Authentic album as a new entry in Charts Don't Lie. The old school rapper only moved around 13k, and so we gotta ask, what factors played into his...
