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".
HNHH recently got together with Problem to film the visuals for his exclusive In The Booth track "Chachi's Revenge". We also got some footage of the rapper behind the scenes at the shoot, where he talked about the process behind the song and video.

Repetition remains a reality in the rap game, and specific bars tend to get overlooked. This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.
On the night before Christmas two-thousand and ten, a black Santa grunted an album would come. A year and a half later he delivered the goods. God Forgives, I Don’t is now played in everyone’s hood. Some coal deserving kids are crying the rest of us are celebrating. Up to this point Rick Ross has yet to produce a
There are only two new entries within the top 10 of the Billboard 200 this week, and they belong to two rappers: ScHoolboy Q and Kid Cudi. As we said last week, Q was projected to move 150-160k, but fell slightly under that by moving 138,950 copies opening week. This was nevertheless an extremely strong showing from the TDE rapper, which gave him his first #1 debut as well as that of the label's.
Big Sean dropped some heat. Meek Mill dropped some heat. Kanye West? Eh. He was lukewarm, but at least he's still dropping new material. Still, it wasn't too bad of a week for hip-hop, which helps since the we're probably going to be shaking our fists at whatever goes down at the Grammys. That's not until Feb. 8. For now, let's enjoy the week with 140 Bars Or Less.
Soooo, I was assigned an article about tracing the origin of a lot of the flows in hip hop to different regions around the country. Originally, I thought that would be fairly easy to do, and to a certain extent it is, but the article really went in a different direction the more research I was doing.
There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked. This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.

In November, Atlanta rapper Trinidad James caused a firestorm with comments he made while performing in Brooklyn, New York City. After multiple rappers (most notably Maino) called him out for stating that ATL rappers run NYC musically, the Def Jam signee finally admitted he chose the wrong venue.
This week's Charts Don't Lie finds Kendrick Lamar sitting atop the list for good reason. His debut album moved impressive amounts for a hip-hop album, and landed at #2, if it wasn't for Taylor Swift's enormous teen fan base, maybe we would have seen an emcee at #1. Either way, it's good to see fans supporting hip-hop artists.
