HNHH hit up the BET Hip Hop Awards this Sunday, and we got our very own Broady The Joker to tear up the Green Carpet for some interviews. We talked to Nelly about his new album, asked Snoop about getting into stand-up, as well as hanging out with Cash Out, Tiara Thomas, Yo Gotti, August Alsina, Lola Monroe and more!
Watch Broady chop it down with the celebs and artists below, and check out an...
Last week we saw a solid output of music from artists both big and small. However, Drake took the cake with Nothing Was The Same leaking-- basically all talk revolved around Drizzy. Today let's take a look at five dope tracks that dropped in the past seven days, that are unrelated to the Toronto king.
Let us know which underrated rappers you're feeling at the moment.

There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked (with the exception of the already infamous verse Kendrick dropped on Big Sean's "Control" this week). 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...

This week's Underrated Audio is mainly composed of artists who are on the rise, from Toronto rapper Rich Kidd, to the Def Jam signee, August Alsina. Although most of these artists have yet to really establish themselves in the game (we can gloss over Cory Gunz, who also appears in UA this week), they delivered quality tracks this past week which we’d like to shine some more light on. Some of...

The Air Jordan 3 - Bright Crimson's are releasing this week. The 3 has always been amongst the favorites of the Jordan collection. On this drop the shoe will feature a "Canyon Purple" on the elephant print & the sole, as well as "Bright Crimson" accents on a classic black canvas. Definitely a great look for spring 2013.
Release Date: February 23 2013

With the relentless expansion of the Internet and the rise of social media, mass exposure is accessible to more artists than ever before, for better or worse. Each new year gives rise to new artists, as well as older artists attempting to reinvent themselves in the digital age. Of this ever-growing yield there are artists that stand out,
leaving a deeper impression than those that simply ride...

MMG is beginning to look like a truly unstoppable force as
even natural disasters can't seem to stop them, or even slow them down. A few weeks ago we got the release of one of
the most anticipated albums of the year in Kendrick Lamar’s GKMC, which has
performed mightily in the context of today’s rap album sales. Now we get a look at Maybach Music Group’s
Meek Mill who in the face...
Thanks to emcees like Iggy Azalea, the female rapper has clawed its way off of the endangered species list. The Australian bombshell earned her name like Indiana Jones. Her whip appeal struck T.I., and her quest for the Holy Grail is underway with the assistance of Grand Hustle. Glory stands as her gateway offering on the road to The New Classic. Designed as a traditional...

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...
HNHH took a quick trip to Austin, Texas this year for SXSW, to cover The Warner Sound (which included performances by, T.I., B.o.B., Wale, Meek Mill, Stalley, Curren$y, Kirko Bangz, XV & Snow Tha Product). The trip was a short one but productive nonetheless. It was my first time at SXSW and I definitely want to go back for more than three days next time. I'ma give you guys some details on our...
Although it is the holidays, rappers never stop putting in work. Rappers love to release shit on holidays specifically, and this year was no different. Quite a few artists came through with big records in the spirit of Xmas, but there were also some smaller gems which we're shining light on in Underrated Audio.
Have a look through to see what you may have missed in the past seven days.
Underrated Audio is here to provide you with choice cuts from the past week that seemed to be over-looked by the average viewer-- meaning they didn't get as many views as they deserved. This week we've got six tracks spanning the genres of r'n'b and hip-hop, including one that's not necessarily either. We're covering all bases here, with singers like Tinashe and TeeFlii to rappers like Lil Bibby...
Last year J.R. Smith was put on blast after a screenshot of a direct message he sent to a female fan was put online. The Knicks swing man asked her if she "wanted the pipe," to which she politely declined. Now a Twitter user, @g0ldbluntz has posted a message she received from new San Antonio Spur, Marco Belinelli where he asked the young lady if she wanted to have something "big," "long and...
