There's a certain dilemma rappers face when they finally break out of the underground, releasing mixtape after mixtape (which provides them with no financial compensation): how do you expand your newfound fanbase without neglecting the loyal supporters who were there with you from the beginning? Such was the problem that graced Pittsburgh stoner Wiz Khalifa, whose 2010 mixtape Kush N Orange Juice...
As most of you probably know by now, we sponsored this year's Festival Village stage at Hot 97's Summer Jam XX festival.

Lets be real, most of us can't even afford to buy CDs at retail value. At least that's what we tell ourselves as we pirate just about every record we can get our hands on. That being said, there are some things in life that just aren't accessible for free on the internet no matter how badly we want them to be. One of those things is food. Another is live performances. "Bullshit! 50 is streaming...

Ray J's new cover art and single title are currently making waves in the blogosphere for their equally outrageous content. The title, "I Hit It First," may give you some indication that we're going to be getting something referring to his ex, Kim Kardashian, and the cover art makes it even clearer, if we weren't sure at first.
Ray J looks like he'll be throwing some shade Kanye West...

The 1990’s was the most crucial decade in the
mainstream acceptance of hip hop as a viable art form. The genre’s fresh,
energetic sound, coupled with an explosion of talent and one very tragic feud,
allowed for rap music to assume a dominant position in popular culture. Some of
the legendary acts that created the foundation for this success are still
emceeing, and rapping with the same...

The Marshall Mathers LP dropped in 2000 and became the fastest selling solo album of all time, influencing a whole generation of artists with its unique and in-depth look into the bizarre world of Eminem. The album was sandwiched in between Slim Shady LP and The Eminem Show – two other classic albums that are every bit as influential today as they were a decade ago. The same cannot be said of...

If the first Starvation mixtape proved to be a metaphor for Ace Hood’s unmitigated hunger for the level of super stardom usually reserved for rappers like his friend, Lil Wayne, then Starvation 3 makes Ace Hood sound as hungry as ever, except this time around, the production values are a lot better. Of course Ace Hood is a lot closer to his goal than he was when the first Starvation...

They constantly make references to their stomping grounds in their tracks, paying homage to their homies through shout outs, making sure they never take for granted where they came from.
Until Notorious B.I.G.’s death...
The Festival Village stage was a special event for HNHH, as we actually served as a sponsor, and had our own tent at the show. So not only did we get to take in all the performances, but also had Kid Ink, A$AP Ferg, and Action Bronson stop by the tent for autographs and interviews.
The first performer of the day started off with some of the most brutal honesty we heard on-stage. "Y'all might not...

Eminem took things back to basics on his new LP. The Detroit rapper recruited one of Hip Hop's pioneers, Rick Rubin, to help him channel some classic sounds and ideas, many of which came through sampling.
The late 80s era of hip hop they pull from is well-represented in plenty of small vocal snippets and interpolations not instantly evident to the casual rap listener. Many of the musical...
