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.
This week nothing major dropped in terms of hip-hop. Nonetheless, overall album sales went up by 42%. To what can we blame this spike in sales? It would be safe to say Black Friday, which is basically the commencement of the holiday season/shopping frenzy.
Ticket Giveaway: Chris Webby's "Chemically Imbalanced" NYC Show At S.O.B.'s Oct 22, 2014 at 01:08pm 1,325 Views
Chris Webby seems to be a pretty well-liked character on the site, often receiving a user rating of VERY HOTTTTT. So for those fans of the Chemically Imbalanced rapper, we've got a ticket giveaway for his album release party/NYC tour stop on his "Chemically Imbalanced" tour.
The age-old question under which almost all hip-hop music is scrutinized: does it pass the car test?
Following the release of T.I.’s last two somewhat lackluster albums, 2010's No Mercy and 2012's Trouble Man, combined with the rise of new age rap stars like Drake, Kendrick Lamar, J.
In the hip-hop industry, there are four kinds of artists: those who have crossover appeal, those who don’t, those who choose not to, and those who shouldn’t. Slaughterhouse, as a collective and as solo members, simply shouldn’t.
Yesterday, amid flamethrower bursts and a gaggle of up-and-coming grime artists, Kanye West debuted the third song we've heard from his upcoming album thus far.
You may not agree with everything Kanye West says--in fact, it would be worrisome if you did--but you can't deny his omnipotence as a tastemaker. If Kanye says it's hot, it's hot. Many of today's household names were once unknowns, and thanks to Yeezy, we can now enjoy their them in their full spotlight. The Grammy's prime nemesis has won more Awards than anyone his age--21 total.

Exclusive Interview: Honey Cocaine Talks Linking Up With Tyga, "90's Gold" & More Jul 23, 2012 at 12:22pm 1,157 Views
After catching up with Tyga during his Careless World Tour, HNHH also took a moment to sit down with his Last Kings signee, Honey Cocaine.The young rapstress came on stage during Tyga's set and kept the energy high on stage, while performing her singles with T-Raw, including "Heisman." We asked her about initially linking up with the YMCMB rapper, her new tape 90's Gold, getting shot in Omaha, th
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.
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.
The Fugees second album, The Score, has garnered a significant amount of critical acclaim over the years. The LP turns 19 today, February 13th 2015, and we wanted to take a look back at the record’s creation, influence, and above all: music.
It doesn't even really need to be said at this point, but this past week was dominated by Kendrick Lamar and the many "Control" responses that followed. It seems every rapper feels some type of way about some line in K. Dot's verse, even if they weren't directly called out.
Last week was a game changer at the top of the Top 100. After a few weeks of relative consistency, the Top Ten was washed out in a wave of new music. Keep track of how those songs are doing below. 10) The Game ft. Dej Loaf – Ryda
Before Drake hit the big time, he was another rapper putting out mixtapes trying to get his music out there to the world. (Well, and a Canadian TV star, but that's kind of another story.)
Wiz Khalifa, 2 Chainz, Kid Ink & More Make Super Bowl XLIX Predictions Jan 30, 2015 at 03:28pm 29,741 Views
The Super Bowl is imminent. With the 49th annual Super Bowl going down this Sunday, February 1st, we decided to get word from various hip-hop artists on who they think will take the cake at the championship game.
Rick Ross is excessive by nature, sometimes when it's not even necessary. To be fair, he was forced to be this way after the feud with 50 Cent and being outed as a correctional officer through those infamous photos. After the flames, Ross decided to expand his myth and rattle off one No. 1 album after another (the critically acclaimed Teflon Don is the only album to peak at No. 2).
Yesterday we got news that Daniel “Boobie” Gibson had turned himself over to authorities in New Orleans as he was charged with battery. The Cavaliers guard, who is married to R&B singer, Keyshia Cole, was later released on bail.The only details heard were that the altercation took place at the Essence Music Festival earlier in July. Keyshia Cole was one of the performers at the event,
There aren't very many changes in this week's Charts Don't Lie compared to last week. The main list of artists has remained the same, as we have yet to receive any new rap or r'n'b debuts on the Billboard 200, although Kid Ink's debut album My Own Lane will begin charting in the near future. Ink's RCA album is projected to move a solid 40-45k, which will land him within the top 3.
This week J. Lo returns to the Billboard 200, although her opening week numbers are not as strong as previous releases from the pop star. Back in the 2000s when J. Lo was really in her prime (although we cannot deny she is still looking hot these days), the singer would easily sell upwards of 200,000 units opening week. However her comeback album, A.K.A., didn't even manage to break the 50k mark.
Although he’s been in the rap game since the early '90s, Pusha T had yet to release a studio solo album. Until now. As one-half of the Clipse with his brother (now) No Malice, Push saw his popularity rise with their hit single “Grindin.” Three albums and 16 years later, Push, real name Terrence Thornton and his brother parted ways musically to work on their solo careers.
Theres no way to deny it, we are currently living in a time in which streetwear reigns supreme. Through recent years streetwear has evolved, not only taking a more fashion-forward approach but opening up doors for musicians, especially rappers, to slide through, leaving an imprint not only musically but aesthetically.
