HNHH's "Underrated Audio" puts you on not-too-mainstream music you might have missed from the past week.
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.

HNHH Exclusive: Ace Hood's "Trials & Tribulations" Listening Session Jun 20, 2013 at 05:28pm 195 Views
Ace Hood seems to have finally found his lane within the rap game, after his career stalled for a moment. The falter didn’t discourage Ace, instead, motivated him to get to where he is today-- affiliated with YMCMB, We The Best, and MMG, although currently signed to DJ Khaled’s We The Best label.
Waka Flocka "Salute Me Or Shoot Me Vol. 4: Banned From America" Review Sep 14, 2012 at 11:27pm 151 Views
For starters it needs to be stated that DJ Holiday is one of the greatest mixtape DJ’s out there. With Classic’s like French Montana’s Mister 16: Casino Life, and Gucci Mane’s Writings on the Wall 2, he definitely deserves the honor. That said, his work with Waka Flocka is equally admirable, and considering this new chapter in their celebrated series the crack continues to cook.
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.
Nate Dogg left an incredible body of work before his time came to an end. He crushed it on his solo projects, alongside 213, and also on dozens and dozens of legendary features. The latter of which is what we're focusing on today.
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?
The Grammys bring all of recorded popular music together under one roof. It's the only time you can see Snoop Dogg and Billy Joel at the same party (because Billy's a Piru for life).
Today's the very last instalment in the #HOTNEW14 round-up. As we aggregate all the 'Hottest Of' in 2014, we cannot forget what keeps our site alive and thriving-- the commenters. Or trolls. Not every commenter is a troll, but we know a good half of you are.
We've gone through our stats for the top 100 most popular searches on Hot New Hip Hop, and narrowed it down to ten artists. Songs, album titles, and creative spellings of rappers names were all taken into consideration when compiling the final results.
As summer draws to a close and all the kids are back at school, it's a great time to reminisce about all the fun that was had and great music that came out. Last week we tackled the best mixtapes of the summer, but that doesn't tell the whole story.
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.)
Ever since Drake dropped off "0 To 100" right in the middle of Summer Jam on June 1st, rappers from every corner of the game have been clamoring to hop on the track, with everyone from Juicy J to Joell Ortiz spitting over Boi-1da, 40 and Nineteen85's ill production.
The other week we got producer Jahlil Beats to do some of our work for us, and list his Top 10 producers of all time. It was an interesting glimpse into the mind and the influences of the young producer, as he cited plenty of seasoned producers and let us know his favorite to ever do it was Swizz Beatz.
HotNewHipHop and RUVilla have partnered up to give Mindless Behavior fans VIP treatment at their meet and greets this week, where the winner and a friend get to cut the line and take a photo with the group. Contest Rules:
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,
Nas' first four albums famously wore portraits of the MC in a different light. He was a kid on Illmatic. He was an adult on It Was Written. He was a pharaoh on I Am... He was Nostradamus on Nastradamus.
It's Thanksgiving today, so while you enjoy your day off with family and friends and probably some turkey, you can also waste time by clicking through our twerky gifs! Not much to explain here, just something (sort of) festive for the holiday. Who doesn't enjoy a good Thanksgiving twerk? We hope that Miley Cyrus one doesn't turn you off turkey completely though.
Lil Tunechi has accomplished a heck of a lot in his three decades and a year. Joining Cash Money Records at the tender age of nine, he has since spent a highly respectable 22 years (and counting) in the hip hop business. The New Orleans rapper has clocked up some remarkable statistics in his discography, with 10 studio albums, 19 mixtapes, and a whopping 192 singles.
We're currently awaiting first week sale numbers for Jeezy's new album, Seen It All, which is supposed to move around 90k-100k. Even though these are just projections at the moment, it's extremely unlikely The Snowman will be able to beat the sales of his last album TM:103 Hustlerz Ambition, which moved 233,000 copies when it dropped three years ago.
It's a mantra that hip-hop listeners are all too familiar with. Year after year, statistics prove that the black community in America--particularly in lower-class neighborhoods--is subjected to unjust treatment from those supposedly designated to protect them. For the most part, these are the same communities that dominate the rap marketplace.

The other week Kendrick Lamar and Lady Gaga surprised their respective Twitter followers when they communicated on Twitter, and Gaga showed her support for K. Dot's music.Well, now she's shown even more support, having reached Pitchfork Music Festival where Lamar was performing this weekend to catch his set.Gaga watched Kendrick from the side of the stage, and the two were seen hugging later.

It can be hard to keep up with at times, so we've consolidated all of the must-hear information from the past month, all in one place.
