    Drake unveiled the artwork for the standard and deluxe editions of his new album Nothing Was The Same this past week. As with all things Drake, memes soon ensued. Like with Drizzy's Take Care art, people were polarized with their thoughts on it. Is it dope? Is it weird? Is it art? We'll let you have that discussion in the comments. For now, click through some of the best memes we found...

    As most of you probably know by now, we sponsored this year's Festival Village stage at Hot 97's Summer Jam XX festival. Kid Ink, A$AP Ferg and Action Bronson were among the bigger acts who performed, and each of them stopped by our tent to sign autographs and take photos with their fans either before or after they took the stage. Kid Ink stopped by shortly after...
  • Review: Iamsu!'s "Sincerely Yours"

    It only took one day for Iamsu!’s debut album, Sincerely Yours, to reach iTunes’ top album charts, a feat which is, quite frankly, surprising. Though the album is not a flop, it’s not a work of artistic genius either. There is nothing about this album that differentiates it from his previous seven albums, and many of the songs on it sound alike. The Richmond rapper’s...
  • Hottest Singles Of 2013

    Another stellar year for hip-hop. As the digital market continued to flourish, singles did accordingly. From Chicago trap to New York boom-bap to Houston trill, it’s all here. Not only were the year’s top singles diverse, but their marketing tactics were unique as well (take Kanye’s “New Slaves”, for example). It is no surprise that Kendrick Lamar and DJ Mustard had...

    Mac Miller recently dropped his latest effort, the “Macadelic” mixtape. I haven't really had feelings towards Mac Miller, good or bad; I've enjoyed some of his stuff, but he's not an artist who's in heavy rotation on my iPod. Nonetheless, this was a free tape, so why not give it a listen.  I enjoyed it more than I anticipated, and I think he went in a slightly different direction...

    Bad Boy Records was founded in 1993 by a lesser-known-at-the-time Sean Combs, who later went by Puff Daddy, P. Diddy and now Diddy. Combs began his music business experience as an intern at Uptown Records (that's a good bit of motivation for everyone interning out there). However, after becoming an A&R executive he was fired in 1993, prompting him to start Bad Boy Records. The first two...

    In the world of hip hop "beef" isn't unusual, in fact it's customary. Some of the greatest and most historical moments in the culture and genre have been produced because of contention. Most disagreements are between two or more artists and/or producers, but from time to time artists have been in dispute with their record labels. And when rappers take to social media, or in some cases to wax, to...

  • Sports-Mad Rappers

    Sports and hip hop often go hand in hand. Rappers not only love to make sports analogies and references as frequently as possible, but they always show allegiance to their team/sport of choice often representing the city they are from. Some artists have even started blurring the lines of music and sports, with, for example, Jay Z taking Roc Nation into sports management, and with Drake putting...

    Often time, being in the rap game and doing prison time goes hand-in-hand, something which we documented on another recent list, 15 Rappers Who Did Jail Time. That's not to say this is the case for all the hip-hop artists out there: there are some rappers who don't have so much as a spot on their record, while there are others who have simply managed to avoid jail time altogether thanks to a...

    Big Sean's G.O.O.D. Music album Hall Of Fame has been out long enough at this point for us all to properly digest it. The album has generally been received as a step up from his debut effort, Finally Famous, with a selection of beats that reflect who Sean is as a rapper. The rapper who is vying for a spot among the best emcees in the game shows us what he has lyrics-wise and production-wise with...

    Call him Steve-O. The Cleveland Wild Boy is back with his new mixtape, Black Flag. Featuring all original music, the free album is more or less a gift to his dedicated EST fanbase. This project comes not too long after Machine Gun Kelly’s debut studio album, Lace Up, which released in October of last year. Nevertheless, MGK certainly didn’t rush the making of his latest mixtape. Triumphant...

    50 Cent and G-Unit made headlines following this year's Summer Jam for a very visible fight that took place in front of 50,000 viewers (70,000 if you count those online) on the event's mainstage. But outside of that seconds-long scuffle, there was a bigger, albeit more subterranean, conflict going on throughout the daylong event. It may not have been apparent to all those in attendance, but...

    HNHH recently got the chance to chop it up with video vixen, dancer, and model Tokyo. Tokyo's stock in the rap game has been on the rise, ever since she appeared in Kendrick Lamar's music video for "Backseat Freestyle" as 'Sherane.' The labeling led some to believe that she was actually THE Sherane K. Dot talks about on good kid, m.A.A.d city (although it's not true). As Tokyo continues to build...
