An essential selection of Audio Push's tracks
Whether they're teaming up against Drake on Hot 97 or popping bottles together in the club, Chris Brown and Tyga have had quite the bromance going for a number of years now.
The summer concert season is quickly approaching, as we close out the month of April. It’s comparable to Christmas for avid music fans. It doesn’t get much better than beautiful weather complimented by beautiful people dancing to bass-laden tunes. Excess amounts of cheap alcohol and THC add to the excitement at summer concerts.
Fabolous' latest giveaway is not your average freestyle--it was a major statement. Most rappers, wisely, would shy away from such a beat--"Shook Ones", the lead off Mobb Deep's legendary The Infamous. But Fabo gave it a good shot. The best? You decide.
Like any Wiz project, there will be a wide variety of opinions on 28 Grams, ranging from exuberant praise to vitriolic disdain.
This week on Charts Don't Lie we see the Christmas spirit in effect, as Mariah Carey's 1994 album Merry Christmas soars back up the charts. We're also seeing a relatively quick decent for the MMG boss Rick Ross, and a relatively low debut for his counterpart Omarion. Wu-Tang Clan arrive on the charts with A Better Tomorrow receiving around 25k streams and sales, although they get one-upped by Ms.
From its birth, Hip Hop culture has been majorly influential for a lot of fashion trends. One of the most recognizable is the sporting of chains. But why do rappers wear these flashy pieces of jewelry? There are probably a ton of different theories and possibilities as to why but some think that wearing "ostentatious articles indicate monetary success.
Along with emceeing, DJing and breakdancing, graffiti is one of the four fundamental elements of hip-hop, and it's been an integral part of the culture since the beginning. Films such as Charlie Ahearn's Wild Style and Stan Lathan's Beat Street helped define this vivid form of expression in the 80s, and it's since grown into an international phenomenon.
Interview: Vince Staples On "Summertime '06", Working With No I.D. & The Beauty Of Atlanta Rap Jun 15, 2015 at 04:46pm 12,704 Views
Not just anyone can release a double album these days.
Sports and hip hop often go hand in hand. Rappers not only love to make sports analogies and references as frequently as possible, but they always show allegiance to their team/sport of choice often representing the city they are from.
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.
One of the many unsung players in the game of hip-hop is the producer. So many of us tune into some music not even listening to the artist in question, but dancing along to the beat, most likely created by an entirely different person.
As summer draws to a close and all the kids are back at school, it's a great time to reminisce about all the fun that was had and great music that came out. Last week we tackled the best mixtapes of the summer, but that doesn't tell the whole story.
We provide you guys with overlooked tracks each week on Underrated Audio, and our Top Tracks feature tells you what's trending on our Top 100 chart, but what is the HNHH staff really listening too? No more sleepless nights wondering what Trevor Smith is keeping on repeat, because we will be rounding up the staff's favorite drops each week for a weekend-ready playlist, which will be
Nicki Minaj dominates the charts this week, although, there is one artist she isn't able to dominate: you guessed it, Taylor Swift. No matter, Nicki outdid sales projections with her first week on shelves, after moving a sold 244,00 units; basically 100k more than we expected. Magic? Or did Cash Money snatch up 100k copies? We'll let you be the judge.
In these tumultuous and confusing times, it’s good to know we have Lil Wayne. Weezy was just about the only constant in this week’s Top 10, with nearly all other tracks getting washed out in a wave of new music. Let’s get started. 10) Tyga ft. Boosie Badazz – Pleazer
Michael Jordan and his model girlfriend, Yvette Prieto, got married this past year, and are already working on starting their new family as the couple announced that Prieto is expecting a child. At the ripe age of 50, the consensus G.O.A.T. has been making some changes in his life. Besides his marriage to his beautiful 34 year old wife, he also put his Illinois mansion up for auction.
Throughout the years Kanye West has transcended hip hop and has made music of his own kind. A hybrid of many sounds and ideas, Yeezus is an ambition expansion of West’s sound palette. Introducing news soundscapes and textures, the album has a completely new sound for the artist, and is a complete disregard for the rules of hip hop and music and because of it, it works.

On his interview with Hot 97 that uploaded to YouTube yesterday morning, Kendrick Lamar said there's "definitely, definitely" going to be a collaboration album with J. Cole. (You can find that tidbit around the 11:25 mark on the interview.)
Remix Fix: Orange Calderón Chops Up Travi$ Scott's "Drugs You Should Try It" Nov 26, 2014 at 10:27am 7,714 Views
If you're feeling sluggish this Wednesday morning, well, Remix Fix probably won't help with that (and sorry we're a day late). This week we take things the chopped and screwed direction, with a chopped up remix of Travi$ Scott's already-melancholic "Drugs You Should Try It."
In music we tend to glorify the debut album, always craving the newest and shiniest thing out. The downside of that is usually we're slightly disappointed in the follow up sophomore album, possibly what led to the phenomenon known as the "sophomore slump".
Black Friday is behind us. It is officially the Holiday Season. There are going to be highly touted releases dropping every week. With that, it's crucial that you stay focused and remember to buy gifts for those on your list, before you blow your budget on yourself.A weekly breakdown of whats to come is necessary. No only to budget yourself, but to plot which pick-ups you should focus on.
Fat Trel Explains The Meaning Of "Gleesh", Talks Artwork Controversy May 2, 2014 at 10:03am 21,778 Views
Fat Trel has made major strides in the last year. After getting picked up by MMG in 2013, the DC rapper has wasted no time in getting his name out there, releasing his Gleesh mixtape, as well as a project with his Slutty Boyz crew, Da New Kool. All the while, he has shown no compromise in his style or substance.
It's fair to presume that some hip-hop fans have slept on Asher Roth over the years. Some still associate him only with his 2009 platinum-selling hit "I Love College". If you find yourself in this category, it's time to recognize one of the best lyrical, smooth-flowing rappers in the game.
Since releasing his sophomore album, Honest, about a year ago, Future has been on a mixtape tear, sharing Monster last fall and the back-to-back heaters Beast Mode and 56 Nights this year.
