DJ Orange Calderón brings the Houston vibes out in Travi$ Scott's "Drugs You Should Try It."
After three studio albums and countless mixtapes, it seems Ace Hood is as determined as ever to prove himself with the release of Trials & Tribulations.
Freddie Gibbs is a veteran in the rap game but it’s taken him a decade to put out his first studio album. Cutting his teeth on the mixtape circuit, Gibbs released a steady stream of solid projects rife with stories of the drug game. After signing with Interscope Records, Gibbs was shuffled to the back of the bus before being dropped altogether.
“Prince Akeem, they throw flowers at my feet, nigga!” Drake declares in the intro of his third album. In 2009, he released the highly-acclaimed So Far Gone mixtape and since then the half Jewish, half Black kid from Canada has gone on sell millions of records, sell out concerts, become insanely rich and currently holds the title for most number one songs on the Billboard rap charts.
Tory Lanez definitely has some buzz behind his name at the moment. Following the release of his r'n'b flavored Chixtape 2, the rapper-slash-singer appeared as a featured artist on YG's debut album My Krazy Life, plus he's been busy touring with G-Eazy & Rockie Fresh.
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.
The hot weather is creeping in for many of us, and this of course means we need some dope tunes to accompany the sunshine. Our list provides you with some summertime essentials which will help you along the way whilst sipping on those alcoholic beverages outdoors, BBQ-ing during the day and partying on those hot summer nights.
Many people think foams are dead. It sure seems that way after the last couple Foamposite releases.
Have you ever scrolled through Instagram and instantly bursted into uncontrollable laughter? Raised your eyebrow? Scratched your head? Instantly smiled? Thought, "Damn. That's dope."? Stared at your phone? Did an instant repost? HNHH is sure you've answered yes to at least one of those questions.
For as long as hip hop has been a part of popular culture, it has been one of the more interactive genres in music. But while most MCs like to make the crowd a part of the show, fans sometimes go to far in trying to get close to their favorite artist. Whether they're heckling or showing love, the stage has always been an "Enter at your own risk" zone.
This week Trey Songz's Trigga makes its debut on the Billboard 200 at #1, giving Trey his second #1 album in a row, following up Chapter V. Although Chapter V sold more records in its opening week (135k), Trigga came close under it with 105k. That's still a respectable follow up-- something we unfortunately cannot say about Robin Thicke.
This week we don't have many new entries to speak of, save for Sage The Gemini's Remember Me. Depending on the numbers Smoke DZA's new album Dream.ZONE.Achieve did, we may or may not see it pop up on Charts Don't Lie next week, though. This week remains fairly unexciting, as Pharrell manages to climb up the charts while Rick Ross descends, and Pharrell picks up pace sales-wise too.
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 week on hip-hop: Labels, labels, labels. Either because the record heads can't get it together or the artists don't want to play the game, the past couple of days saw two rappers at odds with their respective labels. Chief Keef is on the verge of getting dropped from Interscope. It was probably a long time coming to be honest, but at least Keef looks like he's still eating.
The relationship between basketball and gangs is no secret. Traditionally the best basketball players often came out of the most impoverished areas, in which they had very little options other than balling or joining a set.
F*ckin Problems Chief Keef Edition: Artists Who are Always In The Headlines Apr 23, 2013 at 03:09pm 98 Views
Which artist gets into more trouble than Chief Keef these days? In a short amount of time, Chief Keef has pretty much established himself as a mainstay on HNHH's news headlines. Former King model, Ashlee Ray, breaks down some major Chief Keef moments in the video below. Make sure to also participate in our "Problems Polls". // What's The Top Song With "Problem" In The Title? //
With Halloween being today, HNHH decided to collect some of the best photos we could find of rappers wearing Halloween costumes. 'Cause what's funnier than seeing a rapper in a Halloween costume? Not much.Scroll through rappers in various Halloween get-ups throughout the years. And make sure you stop at #5 and absorb the hilarity that is Drake dressed up as an elf. Happy Halloween!
Having released five albums to date, Trey Songz is extremely popular due to his radio-friendly hits and his ability to capture the entire male genders emotions on songs. Most of Trigga's hits are songs that showcase his lyrical ability to grasp the emotional ties between a guy and his girl. Not to mention, he makes some great songs to dance to at the club.
Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx has been celebrated as a classic for some time, but one record from the Wu Tang Chef's debut album has managed to stay on the tip of our tongues over the last 20 years.
Since Outkast began an indefinite hiatus shortly after the release of Idlewild in 2006, their unique sound has been greatly missed in the rap game and beyond. Big Boi brought 50% of the equation back in 2010 with his critically-acclaimed solo album Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty which he followed up this past December with Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumours.
Time to kick off your weekend with HNHH's Staff Picks playlist. We're finally approaching warm weather and with warm weather comes the VERY HOTTTTT tracks, just wait on it. The big question we're asking the peanut gallery today (more commonly known as the comment section) is: what will be the song of the summer?
What qualifies an underrated song? What defines a classic album? Who makes the rules? These are all important questions as we approach our good-natured discussion.
Tattoos have become a pretty popular trend among adolescents and adults in today’s culture, especially within the rap and hip-hop community. While your average person may choose to get a tattoo or two, rappers and other artists in the music industry often adorn their entire bodies with artistic ink, such as Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, 50 Cent, DMX, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne and Kid Ink.
Hip-hop has always had its fair share of food-related lyrics-- with Outkast repping for fish and grits, Lil Wayne comparing himself to lasagna and MF DOOM releasing an entire food-inspired album-- but it's not often that a rap lyrics sheet resembles the menu of a five-star restaurant. That is, unless we're talking about Action Bronson.
"They want that old Sosa… for what doe?" Well, for good reason. Chief Keef ran into some icebergs with Bang Pt. 2, and the ship continues to sink. The same qualities that were present on his last mixtape reappear on Almighty So. Poor mixing and sloppy delivery continue to cloud the highlights. Thankfully the beats were banging, or else this mixtape would have been a lot worse.
