A selection of tracks from the top of our charts.
As is obvious from the multiple "who??" comments that still somehow show up on pretty much everything we post about Tink, many of you still need to get familiar with one of hip-hop's most talented young stars.
Big K.R.I.T. lands himself a strong debut for his sophomore effort Cadillactica, sliding into the Billboard 200's top 5 at #5. This happens to be the same debut as his first LP, Live From The Underground, although Krizzle upped his numbers this time, ever so slightly, moving 44,000 units. Live From The Underground did 41,000.

Detroit rap group Slum Village has certainly endured a lot in its 18 years. Members have tragically passed on, while others have left the group for various reasons. T3 is the only original member left. But despite all that; the veteran rap group personifies Detroit hip-hop. They carry on the legacy of deceased members J. Dilla and Baatin in the most beautiful of ways.
We've entered the month of December, which means not only is Christmas approaching but so is the New Year. As we did last year, we'll be rounding up the Hottest of 2013 from mixtapes to albums to singles and much more. To kick off our year-end lists we've got a simple enough one, which rounds up the ten Most Searched Artists On HNHH Of 2013. Y'all have no one to blame but yourselves for this!
Underrated Audio aims to provide you with some dope looks from the last seven days, that flew under most peoples' radars. While they may have received front-page placement on HNHH, they didn't get as many views as they deserve, so we shine a little more light on them right here.
Miss Info & Laura Stylez Talk On Hot 97's Summer Jam 2014 & More May 28, 2014 at 12:59pm 5,787 Views
Summer Jam is right around the corner, literally. The annual Hot 97 rap event goes down this Sunday, June 1st, at the Met Life stadium. We surmise that this year will be just as eventful as any other year, or perhaps more so, due to the return of once-banned 50 Cent and once-insulted Nicki Minaj.
After not finding a buyer, Michael Jordan is selling his Illinois mansion. In July, Jordan had lowered the price of his Chicago-area mansion from $29 million to $21 million, after having the house on the market for 6 months. Now MJ is tired of holding onto the 56,000 square foot palace and is sending it to auction to sell it already.
Lamar Odom & Khloe Kardashian Are Selling Their Mansion, Probably Getting Divorced Nov 8, 2013 at 11:34am 159 Views
The Lamar Odom saga continues as reports are that he and Khloe Kardashian are selling their home. As has been reported in several articles, Lamar has been struggling with substance abuse, and this had driven him and Khloe apart. Although she has been supportive and wants to help him get on the right track reports say that Khloe wants a divorce and that one is in the works.
The annual MTV Video Music Awards went down in Inglewood, CA last night. While there was no twerking extravaganza/controversy from Miley Cyrus this year, there were plenty of other memorable moments, as we saw stars walk the red carpet, receive and give awards, perform on stage (and almost have a major wardrobe malfunction), plus, Blue Ivy was there.
This week Drake is knocked from his pedestal ever so slightly, as Big Sean's new album Dark Sky Paradise is ushered in at #1. Drake moves to #4, which still isn't a bad look, considering he's above rivals Chris Brown and Tyga. Fan of a Fan didn't move as much as you might expect two mainstream stars to sell-- with just over 50k in pure sales opening week.
Old buddies Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y just dropped off "Uber Driver" and announced an upcoming project titled #2009, the year when they released their first joint mixtape How Fly? Wiz has come a long way since then, now one of the industry's biggest rap stars, and Curren$y has kept it underground, though continuing to add prestige to his name with each release.
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!
Even while behind bars, Gucci Mane has proved that he can produce quality music no matter where he is. His newest mixtape, also available on iTunes, Brick Factory Vol.1, is assumed as one of several compilations to follow, and the series is off to an impressive start.
Coming up with the right supporting beats and melody in a hip-hop track can be extremely challenging. Not to mention the time and effort it takes to make an original beat. In this day and age, artists often borrow music from other songs and build off it, to create a new and unique beat-- obviously, this is called sampling.
Isn't it crazy how some rappers just refuse to retire? Take Jay Z for example, he retired about a decade ago and that lasted all of no time at all. It's hard to put down something you truly love, and even though rap is a young man's sport, this list is dedicated to those who hardly age.
"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.
Things turned down a few notches after last week, which isn't a bad thing considering how crazy that week was. Kanye West returned to The Breakfast Club, and that was pretty much the biggest thing. We're still on the look out for his album and Big Sean's Dark Sky Paradise. Until their drop (or next week), check out 140 Bars Or Less.
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.
Rapping and acting have gone hand-in-hand since the days of Krush Groove. Pioneers like Heavy D, 2-Pac, LL Cool J and Queen Latifah made the move not only acceptable but honorable as well. Since then not only have rappers added to their accolades by hitting the silver screen, others have stepped off the stage and grabbed the mic in turn.
The 1990’s was the most crucial decade in the mainstream acceptance of hip hop as a viable art form. The genre’s fresh, energetic sound, coupled with an explosion of talent and one very tragic feud, allowed for rap music to assume a dominant position in popular culture. Some of the legendary acts that created the foundation for this success are still
A lot of rappers like to smoke weed, as do a lot of their fans, that's a given. Marijuana has become a much more accepted part of, not only hip hop culture, but our society as a whole. As smoking weed becomes more widely accepted, we can feel more comfortable doing it, almost as comfortable as rappers seem with it. That got us thinking.
Guest features have been an important part of hip hop throughout its history, and have become increasingly popular in recent years. It's a great way for artists to cross promote between each other's fan bases, as well as give each track a signature shakeup for a verse or two. The only problem with letting other rappers spit, is once in a while they body you on your own shit. See what I did there?
Fans have been anticipating Tyga's debut YMCMB album “Careless World: Rise Of The Last King” for awhile. It experienced several delays, and almost didn't make it on store shelves because of an uncleared sample.
