We talk with Ro Ransom about his new project "Ro Ransom Is The Future," New York rap, the possibility of "Howling at Hades 2," wrestling and 50 Cent.
Lecrae is on the way to becoming a household name, which is a feat for a rapper, let alone a Christian rapper. The rapper made an impressive debut this past week, with Anomaly topping the Billboard 200 and selling just under 100k, with 88,000. While the sales projections indicated it'd be a close race between Jhene Aiko and Lecrae, Lecrae came out the clear winner.

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.
Christmas might be over, but the holiday spirit is still alive and well, and let's hope it stay that way for a bit. We've seen rappers give to those who are less fortunate over the holidays, but yesterday, it was all about family and friends. Some of our favorite artists gave us a peak inside their home and their celebrations on Christmas day by sharing photos and video on Instagram.
We spoke to the pint-sized rapper Honey Cocaine on the set of Dizzy Wright's "Fashion" video shoot, and although the femcee is small, she's not letting that deter her from making a mark in the rap game.
We're a day away from Christmas, which means you have been subjected to the same five Christmas songs for the last 90 days. Mariah is a national treasure, but if we have to hear "All I Want For Christmas Is You" again, we'll go to her Bel Air home and drop off all the dogs that have spent the last two decades panicking to Daydream. We know that some of you are with us.
Following the earlier release of their debut project Indigoism this year The Underachievers are back with a solid new mixtape, The Lords of Flatbush reasserting their undeniable spot in the Beast Coast movement.

Songs I like, you mighta missed cuz they're not-so-mainstream, you know the deal. Tayyib Ali- Dear Lord [Prod. Jahlil Beats] I was surprised to hear this beat because it does not sound at all like anything I've heard from Jahlil before, he should definitely make some smooth jams more often. Tayyib provides some deep lyrics to go along with it. Young Roddy- The Plot
Happy Fourth of July Hip Hop lovers! In honor of America’s birthday, we wanted to put together a list of some of our favorite artists showing their love for their country. Since the U.S.A is the birthplace of Hip Hop music, it’s only fitting we give our love back with this Patriotic list. Please let us know of any additional artists you think belong on this list!
Since 1993, Sean “Diddy” Combs has always kept his finger on the pulse of trends in hip-hop music. When he founded Bad Boy, he assembled a roster that included one of the greatest rappers of all time. Never one to rest on his laurels, Diddy continued to reinvent his label to stay current with the time.
Music videos have always been an integral part of hip-hop. Whether it’s shots of the neighborhoods that birthed some of the world’s biggest stars, or the spoils that come with commercial victories, the visuals are a crucial component to solidifying artistic expression.
Death Row Records had quite the run in the 90s. Picking up where N.W.A left off, Suge Knight assembled an all-star crew that would come to epitomize the West Coast hip-hop sound, along with bringing it to popularity. 2Pac, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg and others dropped classic after classic on the controversial label.
10) 50 Cent ft. Jeremih, 2 Chainz and T.I. – Get Low Like all of 50’s recent stabs at radio play, this single fell off fast. “Get Low” dropped eight spots from its first-week appearance at number two, landing at the bottom end of our top ten. 9) Jeezy ft. Rich Homie Quan – I Might
Lloyd Banks' pedigree as an ill emcee speaks for itself at this point. During G-Unit’s active days, Banks was widely considered the best pure spitter in the group. Very little has changed in that regard; if anything Banks' career since the early 2000s has distinguished him as one of the most technically savvy rappers out. F.N.O. (Failure's No Option) only makes it easier to argue the case.

Members of the Golden State Warriors organization took a trip to San Quentin penitentiary to play some "prison ball" with inmates, and this isn't a rare occurrence.

HNHH Awards: Trinidad James, Jeremih, Yo Gotti, Problem & More Choose "Rapper Most Likely to Be..." Jul 4, 2013 at 01:44pm 67 Views
HNHH attended the 2013 BET Awards this past weekend, and while there we decided to give out some of our own awards.
Everyone was baby-faced at some point in their life. Rappers are no different. We decided to do some digging and found twenty-seven photos of various different rappers as the young'ns they once were. Albeit, some of these rappers are still young, but they're not THIS young anymore.
Exclusive Interview: Chicago Rapper YP Talks On Meeting Nas & Q-Tip, Upcoming Projects May 22, 2012 at 01:06pm 3,212 Views
Chicago is a city buzzing with many talented rappers, and one of the them on the come-up is YP.

YP talked to HNHH about his new deal, hooking up with Jim Jones, meeting Nas & Q-Tip, and the two
Beefs between rappers in hip hop are nothing new. Through the years we’ve seen infamous rivalries in the rap world, the most prominent being 2Pac and The Notorious B.I.G’s East Coast/West Coast feud and perhaps the Jay Z and Nas New York rap war.
By now, you all don't need an introduction to Amber Rose. Like it or not, she's a big deal in hip-hop. The former stripper turned video girl first caught the eye of Kanye West in Ludacris' "What Them Girls Like" video, and the two soon began a relationship that lasted almost two years. After 'Ye, she moved on to Wiz Khalifa, whom she married two years later.
This week, we finally got the XXL Freshman class, reveled in the glory of Surf, and even got a new Lil Wayne track.

Read on to catch the best tweets of the week.
