    This past week The Weeknd dominated the charts, although he was outshone only by country star Keith Urban. The race between the country star and r'n'b star was a close one, with 3,000 units making the difference for the #1 spot on the Billboard 200. The race was so close, in fact, that Drizzy and The Weeknd prematurely celebrated, when Drake congratulated his friend at his recent L.A. show....

    Everyone's been talking about Kendrick Lamar and his much lauded debut album, good kid, m.A.A.d city, but we decided to give a little more attention to his collective.  Black Hippy epitomizes what a hip-hop collective should be: a group of rappers who can flow together as a group and still maintain a strong individual presence. They've taken the hip hop world by storm, each member having...

    Although he’s been in the rap game since the early '90s, Pusha T had yet to release a studio solo album. Until now.

    Last night proved to be an eventful one, when we learned that Lil Boosie was finally a free man. All the internet rejoiced, and fans of the Baton Rouge native began to come out of the woodwork, just in time to celebrate his freedom.

    With his dusty, warped, sample-heavy sound almost instantly recognizable at this point, Madlib has carved out quite a niche for himself in the underground hip-hop world. First emerging in the '90s with his group Lootpack, he's gone on to rap under the name Quasimoto, play jazz as Yesterday's New Quintet, release his Medicine Show series of concept-driven beat tapes, and of course, collaborate...

    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? Release perhaps...

    After a short hiatus, 140 Bars Or Less: Tweets Of The Week returns to some trouble in paradise. There's friction within the once untouchable MMG empire. Meek Mill announced the Sept. 9 release date of Dreams Worth More Than Money on Monday, which was supposed to kickstart the anticipation for the next big MMG release. Instead, the hype got overshadowed when Meek Mill...

    HNHH went to the canvas to do a shoot with the lovely Miss VVV.  Although, nothing short of a Pacquiao and Mayweather fight would save boxing at this point, we thought this gallery might be a step in the right direction.

    Rappers are storytellers of the modern age. The media often misunderstands these narrators of society, but future generations will recognize them as windows into the past. Truly talented rappers have the ability to connect with people through their words, which may or may not be written down prior to the stage of recording. Some argue that the work of rappers who do not scribble down words...

    Another stellar year for hip-hop. As the digital market continued to flourish, singles did accordingly. From Chicago trap to New York boom-bap to Houston trill, it’s all here. Not only were the year’s top singles diverse, but their marketing tactics were unique as well (take Kanye’s “New Slaves”, for example). It is no surprise that Kendrick Lamar and DJ Mustard had...

    Take note, aspiring rappers - if you create a single that's both catchy and infectious enough to catch the ear of the mainstream, you could be thrust into the limelight sooner than you think (establishing connections doesn't hurt, either).  Take up-and-coming Atlanta trio Migos, for example, who are affiliated with Future's Freebandz movement and Young Scooter's Black Migo Gang. They...
