Atlanta is home of hip-hop's most exciting sub-genre: Trap.
There's a pretty common rule, "Snitches Get Stitches". As HNHH's Ashlee Ray points out, there's some vixens out there that need stitches as well. Trust no one. These ladies shared some intimate details of their encounters with various rappers for a shot at fame, some were more successful than others...
Last week we featured some of the game's heaviest hitters on Samples Of The Week, with Action Bronson and The Alchemist getting jiggy over a classic drum break and Drake once again paying homage to country music star George Strait.
Art is often a collaborative process. Hip-hop is no exception. You know that feeling you get when two of your favorite artists work together? It’s amazing, right? We need to pursue that feeling. Some people were just meant to work together, and sometimes they need us to remind them of this. Today we’re going through a list of collaboration albums that we, as a hip-hop community, need.
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.
It’s hard out there for the life of a rappers wife or that ride-or-die chick. Once you beat out the competition; the gold diggers, video vixens and schemers, and officially accept the title, your public image changes, usually for the worse.
Grandtheft is best known for his work with Keys N Krates on the hit single “Keep It 100”, however as a producer, he’s infamous for having some of the illest remixes out there on the internet.
The hot weather is creeping in for many of us, and this of course means we need some dope tunes to accompany the sunshine. Our list provides you with some summertime essentials which will help you along the way whilst sipping on those alcoholic beverages outdoors, BBQ-ing during the day and partying on those hot summer nights.
The Save Money crew is still pretty young to the rap game, but if the successes of members Chance the Rapper and Vic Mensa are any indicator (both MCs have appeared on the new XXL Freshmen 2014 cover) it won’t take long for them to become a household name.

Kevin Durant has been busy this summer putting work in various summer leagues, recently dropping 63 points in Jamal Crawford’s Seattle Pro-Am.

This week we overloaded with music, thanks in most part to Halloween-- rappers love dropping their shit on a holiday of some sort or on some themed tip, and this year was no different. Among the ton of mixtapes and singles we received, we've picked out four in particular that deserve a second look in this week's Underrated Audio.
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.
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".

WNBA rookie, Skylar Diggins, signed a contract with Jay Z's Roc Nation Sports before beginning her pro career, and recently dropped a quick Instagram video showing off her "dancing"/twerking skills. See the quick clip below of Diggins and her friend popping it to Kstylis' "Booty Me Down." This is certainly a departure from the last twerk-inspired video we posted of Miley Cyrus paying "homage" t
Like most mother’s, Kobe Bryant’s mom was tired of holding onto all of her kid’s old stuff long after he had moved out. Pam Bryant decided she wanted to sell some of Kobe’s things at auction and see if she can get some money for them. Problem is, most of this was valuable memorabilia that Kobe didn’t want sold. The two ended up going to court over the matter and eventually settled t
The newest signee to MMG, Rockie Fresh, surprised most folks when Rick Ross announced him as the latest member on his label. HNHH recently caught up with the Chicago rapper who has maintained his humble roots, and stresses the importance of family and respect.

As you transition from summer to fall, whether that involves updating a playlist, updating a wardrobe, or back in the school/word grind, these songs should help make the changeover easier. The whole back-to-school-time is promising to bring in just as good music as the whole it's-summer-time. What with Freddie Gibbs' Baby Face Killa having dropped today, Murs & Fashawn
