Weekly review of the Hip-Hop and R&B sales/charts.
There has been a heavy influx of modern and neo r'n'b in the past few years, but R. Kelly will always remain an important figure in what we now consider “old school r'n'b”.
A lot of rappers like to smoke weed, as do a lot of their fans, that's a given. Marijuana has become a much more accepted part of, not only hip hop culture, but our society as a whole. As smoking weed becomes more widely accepted, we can feel more comfortable doing it, almost as comfortable as rappers seem with it. That got us thinking.
Production duo Nard & B, hailing from Atlanta, have worked with many of your favourite ATLiens. This includes, but is not limited to, T.I., Future, and Gucci. In this interview, HNHH talks to the Grand Hustle signees on what projects
Marshall Mather's career has been a roller-coaster ride of success, drug abuse, WTF moments and undeniable talent. Widely regarded as one of the best MCs of all time, Eminem has no shortage of recognizable tunes and hits.
Last week we discussed the new effort from Beyonce which made waves in the internet over night, selling an astounding 80,000 units in just three hours. Apart from breaking an iTunes record, the album is well on its way to platinum, following the #newrules of her husband Jay Z.
Atlanta. Just a mention of the city in hip-hop circles conjures up thoughts of trap (and maybe crunk and So So Def-style bass music if you're a bit older), a sound that's been dominating the region since T.I. first hit the scene over a decade ago. But some artists from the A don't fit into that box, opting to cut their own path rather than getting swept up in the prevailing current.
The snare and synth-filled beats, the arrogance in the rhymes, and the claims to fame are all reasons why Tyga has gained so many followers, and this shines through on the first three tracks of Hotel California. It's this familiar, blanket sound that has garnered him the success he so rightfully brags about.
Ne-Yo has been topping charts since the early 2000s when we we're all dancing in school gymnasiums to his first breakout hit "So Sick". His latest album, Non-Fiction featured the track, "Coming With You," a song that has become huge overseas.Blonde is a UK production duo comprised of Adam Englefeld and Jake Manson. The two have been remixing hip hop tracks and turning them house.
We've been keeping you up to date with all the latest hip-hop news and music, so how could we not give you a view of SXSW from the eyes of the fans who were able to attend? We've combed through a lot of photos and video that fans have posted with the #SXSW hashtag, to bring you some of the best flicks documenting the festival. Check out how Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose's matching outfits.
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.
It’s often said you should never put off tomorrow what you can do today. Although this saying works with most people, for some it’s more of a challenge. For rappers, it can result in not delivering that highly anticipated project the fans have been waiting for.
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.
Hip-Hop has been a male-dominated genre since its inception in the 1970s on the streets of the South Bronx. However, female emcees were looking over the horizon and soon crept into the game. From MC Lyte to Salt-N-Pepa, female rappers proved that they had the skill to hang with their male counterparts. They enforced a message of unity to gain the respect that they rightfully deserved.
All the single guys out there know Valentine's is just another hallmark holiday, but that doesn't mean you can't celebrate the occasion. What better way to protest the couple-centric day, than to embrace your own bachelor-status with a
At the beginning of November we did a list that comprised of 9 Creative Rappers You Should Know About. Today we're following up that list with 7 Creative Producers You Should Know About. Producers lack credit across the boards, but they are essential in creating a song, and not just a 'song' but a dope song.
Throwback photos have definitely become somewhat of a a novelty at this point, but there's a certain nostalgia a photo can create that is hard to find anywhere else. We've compiled a list of 20 of the best vintage photographs of legendary rappers together-- some of the pairs are predictable, some are surprising, and a few of the rappers pictured are no longer with us.
HotNewHipHop and RUVilla have partnered up to give Mindless Behavior fans VIP treatment at their meet and greets this week, where the winner and a friend get to cut the line and take a photo with the group. Contest Rules:
The other week we got producer Jahlil Beats to do some of our work for us, and list his Top 10 producers of all time. It was an interesting glimpse into the mind and the influences of the young producer, as he cited plenty of seasoned producers and let us know his favorite to ever do it was Swizz Beatz.
50 Cent is no stranger to controversy, having feuded with just about every big name in the hip hop game. However, his latest mixtape shows that for all his enemies, Fifty’s made the right friends.
Have you ever scrolled through Instagram and instantly bursted into uncontrollable laughter? Raised your eyebrow? Scratched your head? Instantly smiled? Thought, "Damn. That's dope."? Stared at your phone? Did an instant repost? HNHH is sure you've answered yes to at least one of those questions.
There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked (with the exception of open rap letters from Jay-Z). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions. Keep in mind, these are the most noteworthy lyrics of the week, not necessarily the best.
Exclusive: King Los Talks On "Becoming King" Mixtape & HNHH Original "Born A King" Nov 8, 2012 at 09:31am 1 View
While King Los was shooting the official video for his HNHH Original "Born A King" we caught up with him on the set to shoot him a few questions. Los' upcoming mixtape, Becoming King, is set to drop November 29th, and has a slew of features including Wiz Khalifa, Diddy, Machine Gun Kelly etc. So we wanted to know who he wanted to have featured that doesn't make an appearance. Los
In case y'all were wondering about VH1's new reality series "This Is Hot97", our very own Ashlee Ray recently caught up with the principal cast in New York City for an in-depth interview. The program stars the staff from the pioneering hip-hop radio station, with Ebro, Peter Rosenberg and Cipha Sounds at the forefront.
It's Thanksgiving today, so while you enjoy your day off with family and friends and probably some turkey, you can also waste time by clicking through our twerky gifs! Not much to explain here, just something (sort of) festive for the holiday. Who doesn't enjoy a good Thanksgiving twerk? We hope that Miley Cyrus one doesn't turn you off turkey completely though.
