The long weekend festivities haven't ended just yet, with many people, rappers included, planning to barbecue and relax for their extra day off. A lot of hip-hop artists have sent out tweets and social postings in remembrance of fallen soldiers and those currently fighting for the U.S., and these same artists have updated us with what they've been doing all weekend.
Dissecting the foibles of the hip hop community as expressed in under 140 characters on Twitter. Not just used as a device to flood people's timelines with your new track, album, video, or clothing line, sometimes rappers truly channel the unfiltered interaction with fans. Each week we take a look at some of the most memorable twitter moments from some of the genres biggest personalities.
As we do every week, we're bringing you some dope records that dropped in the last seven days, each of which deserve more views. This week was pretty busy in terms of major single releases, we saw the return of Luda with "Party Girls," we saw the return of Big Sean with his "1st Quarter" freestyle and we even got some free music from J.
Mmmmaybach music. The heaviest group in hip-hop presents the third volume of their Self Made album series. Formulaically, the self-proclaimed untouchable Maybach empire haven't missed a step. Likewise previous installments in the series, Self Made Vol. 3 is packed with speaker-knocking beats driven by Rozay and company.
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.
We've reached a day and age when a new Kanye West interview is an event in and of itself. Thanks in part to his iconic "George Bush hates black people" quip in 2005 and a pair of headline-worthy outbursts two years ago, Mr.
Check out some photos from Meek Mill's album listening party took place the other night at the legendary Electric Lady Studio in Greenwich Village. The event was hosted by Hot 97’s Angie Martinez and D’USSE Cognac, and special guests Jay-Z, Will Smith, Rick Ross, The-Dream, Wale and more were in attendance.
So that does it. This is the final 140 Bars Or Less of the year. While many were shedding melancholic tears at the year's final days and others totally checked out because of holiday festivities, the news kept coming in to give a fitting end to one of the most divisive years in recent memory.
In 1993 West coast Hip Hop was at the top of its game. Suge Knight, The D.O.C, and Dr. Dre had formed the now infamous record label Death Row Records. The new label had released Dre’s album The Chronic (1992) to huge fan fare, solidified G -Funk as a proper Hip Hop style (sorry Too $hort), and were quickly becoming the most important players in the game. So what was left to do?
Kendrick Lamar is gearing up to release the sequel to his debut good kid, m.A.A.d city, as you well know. With the release of the untitled album’s first single (or rather "statement") “i” this Tuesday putting everyone in a frenzy, it’s only a matter of time until we get the full product.
This year marks landmark anniversaries for a number of essential albums. OutKast’s Southernplayalistic, The Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready to Die, and Nas’ Illmatic are just a few of the classic albums to turn 20. Eminem’s The Slim Shady LP and The Roots’ Things Fall Apart turn 15. Madvilliany and Kanye West’s The College Dropout both turn 10.
After 14 years of waiting, D’Angelo’s surprise album Black Messiah had every right to be the R&B/Soul equivalent of Guns & Roses' Chinese Democracy - a creaky mess that was done no favors by the weight of fan expectations. But that’s not what happened.
There are few artists who can make seriously great hip-hop albums that are captivating and cohesive for the entirety of their duration. However, those who do understand the medium do it really, really well, time and time again.
WNBA rookie, Skylar Diggins, signed a contract with Jay Z's Roc Nation Sports before beginning her pro career, and recently dropped a quick Instagram video showing off her "dancing"/twerking skills. See the quick clip below of Diggins and her friend popping it to Kstylis' "Booty Me Down." This is certainly a departure from the last twerk-inspired video we posted of Miley Cyrus paying "homage" t
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".
This feature highlights a hand-picked selection of some of the bigger tracks of the week. We have chosen a few of the tracks that landed within our top 25 most played, focusing on those that stood out, and left room for discussion.
BTS Photos: Rockie Fresh, Rick Ross, & Nipsey Hussle's "Life Long" Video Feb 10, 2013 at 04:37pm 43 Views
While in L.A. for Grammy weekend, Rockie Fresh teamed up with Rick Ross and Nipsey Hussle for the "Life Long" shoot. The track is one of the standouts off of his recent Electric Highway tape and should be coming your way soon.View the gallery below.
Atlanta. Just a mention of the city in hip-hop circles conjures up thoughts of trap (and maybe crunk and So So Def-style bass music if you're a bit older), a sound that's been dominating the region since T.I. first hit the scene over a decade ago. But some artists from the A don't fit into that box, opting to cut their own path rather than getting swept up in the prevailing current.
Fuck Donald Sterling. Let's just get that out of the way off the top. Regardless of your opinion on how Clipper's players handled it, or what the NBA will have to do in the aftermath, we can all agree that Sterling is a despicable human being that is clearly living in an alternate universe where he thinks his view on "culture" is acceptable.
Fat Joe is still practicing the technique of licking the soles of his deadstock sneakers. We all remember the episode of MTV Cribs where he proved his Olympic 7s were clean by licking the soles. The most recent soles Fat Joe slobbered over were the "Gamma Blue" Air jordan 11, which are a release that has everybody drooling.
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.
