Christmas is finally here and no doubt you’ve already finished your shopping. You left a few very important people off your shopping list, however. Namely, your favorite rappers. They’ve done nothing but provide us with great music and be good little girls and boys (GS9 excepted) all year. And yet you stiffed ‘em.

It was a busy week, and as usual, Twitter was popping to match. Read on to get the best, funniest and most interesting rap tweets of the week.
In terms of sales, hip hop albums did not do very well this year. As of press time, J. Cole is the only rapper with a gold album this year, and he just sneaked into the fourth quarter with a surprise release. Most of this boils down to a simple lack of "event" albums.
On Animal Ambition, 50 Cent returns to the old street-ready sound that made him a household name back in 2003. Unfortunately, a lot has changed in hip-hop since 50’s debut. With the rise of Kanye West (or more particularly 808s & Heartbreak), the genre has become more emotive—more artistically diverse and interesting.

If you're on the East Coast like we are, you probably walked outside in the last few days and noticed something; it's fucking cold out. Where'd that come from? It feels like just yesterday we were riding around with our windows down bumping "Hot Nigga" remixes and enjoying our Summer.
With A$AP Rocky debuting the new track "M's" just hours ago, excitement for his upcoming album has never been higher. A few weeks ago, we got a title, A.L.L.A. (At. Long.La$t.A$AP), and then a potential release date, so we're in the full-swing of what was once called the "album release cycle," before Beyoncé upended that shit in December 2013.
Like we did last year, we'll be rolling out a slew of year-end lists to round up everything that went down in rap and r'n'b in easy-to-digest list-form. We like to kick things off with the Most Searched Artists on our site of 2014, because that will give people a good gauge of who was popping on HNHH specifically in the last year.
Now that the new scholastic year is upon us, the doors of summer have officially closed and it's back to reality. As such, we've decided to look back on some of the projects that helped define the warmer months of 2013, if only to prolong those chiller times for a moment.
Many of hip-hop's most classic albums have one thing in common: they were all produced (mostly) by one man. Dr. Dre, J Dilla, the RZA, Kanye West, Madlib, and many more have all laced MCs with a collection of beats that create a cohesive aesthetic through which full LPs can thrive.
On May 12th, Snoop Dogg and Pharrell will link up to release their first joint album, BUSH. Although they haven't previously worked on an entire album together, this is far from their first rodeo as a team, as they have a joint hitmaking streak that extends back to The Neptunes' early 2000s heyday.
Houston, Texas has birthed some incredible rappers. One of them goes by Scarface, and together with Geto Boys, he helped to put Houston on the rap music map. With a style all his own, the baritone MC has released 11 solo albums along with doing countless features and more. Some of those songs helped to shape hip-hop throughout the past 30 years.

To answer the above question, yes, mostly. His recent headlines alone show that there’s something to Nipsey Hussle, and we do get a glimpse of what that 'something' may be in Crenshaw. Overall, the tape is a good listen and a sound effort.

The drought of music from the A$AP Mob family came to end recently when A$AP Rocky put out a new single "Multiply." With the visual treatment for the song, we were granted a sneak peek at what is presumably his next single, "Pretty Flacko 2." Given how much of a banger the first "Pretty Flacko" was, anticipation began to build immediately, and grew exponentially when Rocky performed the single
B.o.B. is one of those artist that currently stands in a grey area: he's attained mainstream success thanks to catchy tunes, but he's also a seasoned rapper, and finds himself balancing between full-out pop music and more hardened hip-hop. So who are his main fans, the picky hip-hop heads or the avid radio listeners? On No Genre 2 he makes a plea for both.
