Around this time last year, we caught up with South Central L.A. emcee DUBB for an extensive interview. If you missed it, or are unfamiliar with the man, you can and should read it here. His new project, titled Perfect Timing and hosted by DJs Skee and Whoo Kid, dropped today, which happens to be his born day.
You know how it goes. We've grabbed some of the tracks we thought were overlooked this past week, and placed them all in one place (here) for your enjoyment. This week it really is about rappers that are overlooked (apart from Party Next Door, who is not a rapper at all).
Game Changers is a new HNHH feature that highlights artists that have left a strong mark on hip hop. Whether it be through creativity, influence, exposure, or just plain good timing, a game changer is someone who has brought something to rap where the game just wouldn't be the same without them. In our first entry to the series, we're
Obviously the biggest topic of this week's Charts is Drizzy Drake. The rapper utilized the surprise release tactic that we've seen several artists find success with over the last year or two, and it definitely paid off for him as well.
Manolo Rose Says He Has Songs With Harry Fraud & Hit-Boy In Store Jun 11, 2015 at 11:18am 2,408 Views
Fresh off the release of his debut mixtape Concrete Rose, Manolo Rose stopped by the office to speak on the project and what else he has in store this year.
This past week, Twitter was mostly dominated by three things: the wild conclusion of Game of Thrones' fifth season, the launch of Orange is the New Black's third season, and most importantly, the Rachel Dolezal scandal.
Today is an annual shopping event in the United States known as Black Friday. With deals on just about everything across the web and in stores, a lot of people get their Christmas shopping on today, and even a little personal shopping done for themselves. For rappers, this kind of shopping is done on a weekly basis, and it's usually not based off whether something is on sale.
The latest NBA player to talk about playing in the NFL is Nate Robinson, who says he would have been great. Yesterday, we posted a tweet of LeBron James saying he wants to play at least one game in the NFL before he retires. There has been a lot of speculation of just how dominate this freak of nature athlete could have been in football.
Dissecting the foibles of the hip hop community as expressed in under 140 characters on Twitter. Not just used as a device to flood people's timelines with your new track, album, video, or clothing line, sometimes rappers truly channel the unfiltered interaction with fans. Each week we take a look at some of the most memorable twitter moments from some of the genres biggest personalities.
For years boxing fans both rabid and casual have been eagerly awaiting, theorizing, and fantasizing about the potential of a Floyd "Money" Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao matchup.

We know that The Weeknd is not considered hip hop, but you can't escape Kiss Land as a great production piece. The Weeknd is known to be one of the new faces of R&B and Drake's go-to guy for an R&B feature.
We're very excited today to debut our first-ever digital cover story, with Mr. Wonderful himself, Action Bronson.
The rap game is filled with natural born hustlers, that much is undeniable. It is truly astonishing, looking at how so many MCs, since the inception of the genre itself, have successfully used hip-hop as a platform to become titans of multiple industries. Even though Jay Z (spoiler alert: he’s on this list) was the one who coined the phrase “I’m not a businessman.
This week on hip-hop: Labels, labels, labels. Either because the record heads can't get it together or the artists don't want to play the game, the past couple of days saw two rappers at odds with their respective labels. Chief Keef is on the verge of getting dropped from Interscope. It was probably a long time coming to be honest, but at least Keef looks like he's still eating.
HotNewHipHop's On The Come Up series profiles rising stars in the rap game that show strong promise and the will to succeed. Most of the time, they're new to the site but deserve some shine. We will profile artists and producers ranging from those in the deep underground to artists just about to bubble up into the mainstream that you may have missed.
Christopher George Latore Wallace, otherwise known as The Notorious B.I.G. or Biggie Smalls, was born at St. Mary’s Hospital in Brooklyn on May 21, 1972. He grew up as an only child in the Clinton Hill area to his parents Voletta Wallace, a Jamaican preschool teacher, and George Latore, a welder and Jamaican politician.
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.
Clearly there’s some bad blood between Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife, Siovaughn Funches-Wade, as she had filed a lawsuit for a million dollars but has no “voluntarily dismissed” the case. The lawsuit had claimed that the two signed a contract back in 2006 that certain endorsement money would be placed in a joint account where Funches-Wade could access it, but that Dwyane had voluntarily bee
This week all eyes are Kanye West, J. Cole and Mac Miller. But mainly Kanye West. The three rappers are releasing their respective projects two days from now (Tuesday, June 18th) and we will be watching the sales and the charts to see where each artist lands.
Brazilian Drug Lord Gave Al Harrington A "Ghetto Pass" To Visit The Hood Oct 15, 2013 at 10:57am 15 Views
The Wizards' Al Harrington was in Brazil with the team for an exhibition game against the Chicago Bulls and was granted access from a drug lord to visit a Brazilian hood. Called "favelas" in Brazil, they are run by drug lords and no one is allowed access in or out without getting a pass from the man who runs them.
For some, a New Year's Day is just another day — except a little newer. That's the impression you'd get from a quick glance at rap Twitter. Old grievances carried on to 2015. But that's OK, because there are only three things that matter: new Migos, new Kanye West and Plain Pat. Check out the details on 140 Bars Or Less.
Some combos are classic like peanut butter and jelly or Oreos and milk or Cory and Shawn, and some take more getting used to, like chocolate and bacon, or french fries with a Frosty, or Jessica and Roger Rabbit. The idea of our favorite artists breaking genre barriers and doing collaborations together can be unexpected, even downright shocking, and like some combinations (mustard and oatmeal, fo
Nate Dogg left an incredible body of work before his time came to an end. He crushed it on his solo projects, alongside 213, and also on dozens and dozens of legendary features. The latter of which is what we're focusing on today.
Coming up with the right supporting beats and melody in a hip-hop track can be extremely challenging. Not to mention the time and effort it takes to make an original beat. In this day and age, artists often borrow music from other songs and build off it, to create a new and unique beat-- obviously, this is called sampling.
