    Snoop Dogg stays a busy man, from hosting the BET Hip-Hop Awards, to working on new music, to hosting his own YouTube segment GGN News, the rapper/reggae artist/funk artist doesn't stop. His latest foray into the genre of funk with producer Dam-Funk incited his name change (once more) from Snoop Dogg to Snoop Lion to now, Snoopzilla.

    In the 90s and early 2000s, smoking marijuana was largely unaccepted and taboo. There was talk that weed was "dangerous," and despite debates and research showing that it was actually safe, and had possible healing properties, it remained banned in every US state. In recent years, more states have come to realize the medical benefits of marijuana, and it has become legal (for medical use only) in...

  • Review: B.o.B.'s "No Genre 2"

    B.o.B. is one of those artist that currently stands in a grey area: he's attained mainstream success thanks to catchy tunes, but he's also a seasoned rapper, and finds himself balancing between full-out pop music and more hardened hip-hop. So who are his main fans, the picky hip-hop heads or the avid radio listeners? On No Genre 2 he makes a plea for both.  Three years, two albums and two...

    Even the grittiest of gangster rappers have their mothers to thank for much of their success, and they don't always get the credit or respect they deserve. As such, and in celebration of Mother's Day, we've compiled a gallery of 25 photos of emcees with their moms, from Tupac Shakur to Kanye West.  Even if you won't be seeing your mother today, make sure you let her know what she means to you,...

    When you think hip-hop, North Carolina is definitely not the first thing that comes to mind. Nevertheless, hip-hop knows no borders and thanks to the internet, we often don't know the regions of the music we receive either. Back in the mid '90s, the most well-known rapper from NC could very well have been Petey Pablo, but with J. Cole's rise in the rap game and his mainstream popularity, he's...

    They say that imitation is the highest form of flattery, but not everyone is flattered when Weird Al Yankovic decides to make their hit song into a caricature. The 54-year-old funny man has spent the better part of three decades taking some of pop’s biggest hits and making them into parodies that touch on subjects ranging from television to tattoos to trash day. Weird Al rose to stardom...

    While she may have had her doubters at certain points, its clear from last night's Summer Jam performance that Nicki Minaj is one of the most exciting voices in the rap game right now. While the Young Money rapper has had her share of incredible solo tracks, she also tends to bring a particularly great energy to features. Leading up to Pink Friday was Nicki's first string of legendary guest...

    Migos’ style is something like a basketball point guard. The person at the position doesn’t need to master every aspect of the game and probably won’t — rebounding just isn’t his thing. But the person’s shortcomings are hidden by how exceedingly good he is or has to be in a few other skills, whether it’s ball handling or calling plays. Migos will probably...

At HNHH, we decided to honor Jonathan Smith's birthday by listing the top ten hit tracks that he's associated with...

    What most music fans don’t know is that a major record label deal is not guaranteed change in your pocket. A recording contract is essentially a legal agreement which allows the record label to exploit an artist’s work through recorded material. This includes the album’s release, promotion, marketing, sales… you name it. The price tag set on the deal merely highlights the...

    Like any Wiz project, there will be a wide variety of opinions on 28 Grams, ranging from exuberant praise to vitriolic disdain. This variance in opinion is common for Young Khalifa, as Wiz has been riding the same strange roller coaster as Weezy the last few years, delivering excellent mixtape projects like Taylor Allderdice and Cabin Fever 2 while disappointing most with his retail...

    This segment of Charts Don't Lie is relatively subdued, as we have no big new entries to speak of just yet. While Childish Gambino's new album, Because The Internet, dropped last week, it has yet to start charting although it is expected to sell a pretty respectable amount, especially considering it's double the amount of his last release, Camp. Gambino is projected to move 80-90k  while Camp...

    Hip-hop and beef are synonymous with one another. The nature of the game is competitive, and so stars are always getting into tussles with one another, diss tracks are released (if you're Papoose, it often appears for no reason whatsoever), and with help from social networks like Twitter, we often have feuds occurring over the insignificant issues. 2013 was no different from past years, and some...
