HNHH was invited to cover Hot 97's Summer Jam. Here are a few main stage photos. More galleries are coming, along with video coverage.
This past week saw a few big mixtape drops, from the likes of Game and Nipsey Hussle, Lil Durk, and The Ying Yang Twins (jokes...but they really did drop a mixtape). Childish Gambino came through with a new record, "Yaphet Kotto," which is always a big deal since he's dropping music far and in between (although a new album is on the way).
There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked. This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.
As the year presses forward, we seem to be getting closer and closer to T.I.
The Def Jam rapper explained that B.O.A.T.S II: #METime would be the ultimate record to self-reflect to, or gain some ‘me time’ as 2 Chainz calls it. Self-indulgent it certainly is, and we would expect nothing less from 2 Chainz, considering his swag and confidence.
The title of best female rapper is a buzz term that gets thrown around a lot, and is often hotly contested. Several female emcees have been vying for the title. A rivalry of sorts has began between Iggy Azalea, and Azealia Banks with people choosing sides between the dualing female artists.
Kevin Durant has been busy this summer putting work in various summer leagues, recently dropping 63 points in Jamal Crawford’s Seattle Pro-Am. Usually Durant is an affable dude, and only shows his cut-throat competitive nature when hooping, but yesterday was the exception. Running into Justin Bieber, KD alongside Tyson Chandler, posed for a photo with a topless Biebs who posted it on his Inst
This week we overloaded with music, thanks in most part to Halloween-- rappers love dropping their shit on a holiday of some sort or on some themed tip, and this year was no different. Among the ton of mixtapes and singles we received, we've picked out four in particular that deserve a second look in this week's Underrated Audio.
Kevin Durant lets his game do the majority of the talking for him, so it came as a surprise to most when it was announced that the OKC Thunder’s forward was engaged to Monica Wright of the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx. Over the weekend, the future Mrs.
This week continues to be a good one on the hip-hop front. Today alone saw new projects from Logic and Harry Fraud, yesterday we got August Alsina's mixtape, while last week we got projects from J. Cole, Chance The Rapper, and the list goes on.
The newest signee to MMG, Rockie Fresh, surprised most folks when Rick Ross announced him as the latest member on his label. HNHH recently caught up with the Chicago rapper who has maintained his humble roots, and stresses the importance of family and respect. Even though he’s part of one of the biggest groups in the rap game, Rockie has not changed a
As you transition from summer to fall, whether that involves updating a playlist, updating a wardrobe, or back in the school/word grind, these songs should help make the changeover easier. The whole back-to-school-time is promising to bring in just as good music as the whole it's-summer-time. What with Freddie Gibbs' Baby Face Killa having dropped today, Murs & Fashawn
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.
This off season just keeps getting worse for Lamar Odom, as yet another notable rapper drops his name on a track as Lil Wayne calls out Odom's reported drug use. Lamar's struggles with drug abuse have been well-documented, and although he claims to not be on drugs, there are various sources citing that he has been indulging in crack.
The team over at Sole Clinics came through big time with this carbon fiber Air Jordan 11 custom. The all-black colorway looks super smooth, swapping the iconic patent leather for a more rugged carbon fiber. Despite losing it's iconic patent leather, the sneaker doesn't miss a beat in terms of catching the eye.
Formerly a 2008 Quickstrike, the Air Jordan 1 Hi Premier Varsity Red/Dark Army, will re-release on December 2nd with a $115 price tag. The shoe features a premium red leather upper, tonal suede on the eye-stay, collar and toe box, and dark contrast on the inner-lining, swoosh and outsole.Scheduled for release a few weeks before Christmas; will this festive Jordan be on your holiday wish list?
Sneaker names, and the sneakers themselves, are often a cause of criticism, especially amongst sneaker communities. At times, the criticism and ridicule can turn into a full blown controversy. Sometimes, the controversy surround a sneaker is silly and unwarranted. Other times, it's hard to believe a sneaker ever made it out of the factory in the first place.
Fuda Customs "Knicks" Air Jordan 4 rendition features all the familiar colors New Yorker's know and love. The base sneaker was the "Military Blue" Air Jordan 4, which gets treated with an orange upper. Knicks logos are stamped on the ankle collar, with hits of blue and white setting everything off.
The much anticipated Air Jordan 6 "Infrared 23" has already made its way into DJ Khaled's collection. The sweet looking, new colorway will hit all retailers on February 15th.
The Nike Kobe 9 Elite "Inspiration" will be releasing on March 1st. The "Inspiration" was unveiled yesterday along with two other colorways, but the Nike Kobe 9 "Inspiration" is the sneaker Kobe will be lacing up when he returns to action for the Lakers.
In case you didn't get enough of Kevin Hart on nearly every commercial the past week, here he is again. The funny man was out and about in LA after watching the Heat take on the Lakers on Christmas day. The Nike Air Yeezy 1 was Hart's shoe of choice, and he also wore a jacket that had to be a size XXS.
The all black, carbon fiber Nike Air Flightposite looks to be making a return in 2014. The sleek, all black look is a nice change of pace from the crazy and vibrant colorways we've previously seen getting retro'd.
Dikembe Mutombo has been a mainstay reference for rappers since the 90s. Usually rappers are talking about how big they are, on the block, or how their money is "long like Mutombo." The NBA legend has seen a post-playing career resurgence of late as his trademark blocking prowess followed by his signature finger waving were used in a viral GEIKO commercial.
Lamar Odom Raps About Using Drugs & Cheating On Khloe In Bizarre Freestyle Nov 22, 2013 at 04:05pm 9,251 Views
Lamar Odom has been working out with a trainer in Long Island, and has some serious interest from both the Clippers and Lakers if he can show that he's in shape, and not using any illicit substances. Of course this follows a tumultuous summer for Odom where reports of him using drugs like crack surfaced, and he had been mostly MIA from his family and wife Khloe Kardashian.
