In HNHH's new segment, Damon Campbell talks to Skeme and Dom Kennedy about their origins, background, and ongoing work in an in-depth interview.
Last night celebrities flooded their Instagram accounts with photos of what they donned for this year's Halloween festivities. Some went the simple route, sporting a mask, some went all out with full body paint and a unique concept, and some wore basically nothing at all.
This week has been a mixed bag, which is unfortunate since it started off good. Missy Elliott came back, messed around and stole Iggy Azalea's Super Bowl performance. Will this put impetus on Missy E to put out a new album soon? One can hope.
Game Changers is an HNHH feature that profiles artists who've left a strong mark on hip hop. Whether it be through creativity, influence, exposure or simply good timing, they've brought something to rap music that the game just wouldn't be the same without. This week, we've chosen to profile an inarguable game changer: RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan.
Many had written off, Dwyane Wade, who was hobbled with a knee injury throughout the 2012 Playoffs, but he was able to persevere and the Miami Heat dispensed of the Oklahoma City Thunder in a surprisingly short five game series to capture the franchise's second NBA Championship. D-Wade recently shouted out HNHH for continually supporting
Halloween arrives tomorrow, and it's the time of the year where grown ass men and women can get away with dressing up as whatever they want, really, and usually for women, that involves showing as much skin as possible.
T.I. is a legend at this point. For nearly 20 years he has been blessing the mic with verses of the hustle, the struggle, roads to success and pimpin'. He's a rapper, actor, convicted felon and one of the south's most heralded artists.
For our inaugural 2015 edition of Behind The Beat, we're giving you the full scoop on a producer who you probably heard in 2014, just without knowing it. He is one of three names credited on Drake's ESPY-ready Johnny Manziel tribute, "Draft Day," which placed #25 on our Hottest Songs of 2014. And that wasn't even the only beat he helped commission for the 6-God last year.
Some may say that DJs like Drama are not "DJs" at all. Seeing that they aren’t steady flipping faders, critics feel it's fair game to strip them of their titles. With the club experience in, mind let us make it more expansive - a DJ is someone who takes an array of sounds and combines them creatively to produce an eclectic audio experience.
"You have no choices about how you lose, but you do have a choice about how you come back and prepare to win again." -Pat Riley
Repetition remains a reality in the rap game, and specific bars 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.
Martin Luther King Jr. really needs no introduction at all, however, we will attempt to do the civil rights leader justice in our brief description.
Nothing too new is going on in the game this past week. In other words, hip-hop is just going right now. And that's not bad: Vince Staples is alive and still hating on Chris Paul, Jay Z still knows how to tweet, Meek Mill is still free and he's #woke. Common and John Legend won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song ("Glory" from Selma), but other than that, things have been a 40 degree day.
As social media become more ubiquitous than ever in our interpersonal networks, interactions between celebrities become fodder for our inner voyeuristic tendencies; from the live-tweeting of births to trivial jabs at peers, exchanges posted online manage to garner global audiences, sometimes bringing forth meaningful conversations about societal behaviors that otherwise would be left unspoken.
Smoke DZA fans have seen the Harlem rapper’s growth from his last few projects. He went from hard-hitting straight-laced lyrics in George Kush Da Button to a street storyteller in Rugby Thompson. Back with the long awaited and highly anticipated Dream.ZONE.Achieve, DZA sets out to prove that he has a lot more to talk about than just marijuana.
This past week has been pretty interesting for the Billboard 200. Following the Grammys and more recently, the Super Bowl, we've seen several artists gain substantial increases in sales. First, the song that Macklemore & Ryan Lewis performed at the Grammys, "Same Love", as we reported earlier this week, saw a crazy increase in sales of 350%, while their album, The Heist, saw a 62% increase.
We're all doing it for the Vine these days. Six second videos perfectly capture those funny and sometimes awkward situations whether it's from a rapper or just the average Joe telling you how things go down in the real world. Watching Vines can become pretty addictive, sometimes you just get mesmerized by the never-ending loop.
So we've showed you the main stage and the Festival Village, now it's time to take you backstage at Summer Jam XX 2013. Can't really say much about backstage, it's TOP SECRET!
This week on Charts Don't Lie some of the less consistent rappers have fallen off, while others prove they're on the charts for the long-term. We already knew Justin Timberlake would be here awhile, after he went platinum in very little time following his album's debut.
Kanye West recently performed three shows--with one more tonight--at the Fondation Louis Vuitton to close out Paris Fashion Week. Decked out in his new Yeezy Season 1 adidas gear, Kanye performed songs, including unreleased material off So Help Me God, from his entire catalogue. In addition, he also showed off some of his signature dance moves.

Ever since electronic dance music exploded a half-decade ago, the rap industry has been tapping in to the DJ culture in hopes to exploit it for some radio air time. Artists like Steve Aoki, David Guetta and Tiesto have offered their bottle-service beats up to the likes of otherwise-solid MCs such as Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes.
This week we see Trey Songz maintain a spot within the Billboard 200's top 10, although he fell from the grace of #1. We're also seeing just how quickly Robin Thicke's Paula is going to fall off, as it already finds itself nearing the edge of the top 50.
