Bizzy Crook is probably a name you're becoming more and more familiar with, as he makes his way across the U.S. alongside Kid Ink and King Los for the "My Own Lane" tour, not to mention recent leaks like "Bands In A Depression" featuring OVO's OB OBrien.
Underrated Audio aims to provide you with some dope looks from the last seven days, that flew under most peoples' radars. While they may have received front-page placement on HNHH, they didn't get as many views as they deserve, so we shine a little more light on them right here.
On this day, 27 years ago, N.W.A released their indisputable classic, Straight Outta Compton. Selling over 750,000 copies before they even gained notoriety on tour, N.W.A recieved immediate controversial attention from the media for their lyrical content, which was often violent and/or focused on dissatisfaction with police.
The latest single off Rihanna’s upcoming album, “Bitch Better Have My Money” has jacked anticipation up to another level. The track is a hit that has been making noise through social media posts, tweets and conversations since she dropped a snippet just last week.
Keeping Gucci Mane out of the headlines is no easy task. Once again he’s back, although this time with the release of his digital album The State Vs. Radric Davis II: The Caged Bird Sings.

Stream Main Attrakionz "808s & Dark Grapes III" & Read Our Interview With The Duo Jun 29, 2015 at 04:25pm 6,160 Views
Four summers ago, Squadda B and Mondre Man hit pay dirt with 808s & Dark Grapes II, a tape with a reputation that would very quickly outgrow its Kanye-referencing name. The duo, known collectively as Main Attrakionz, had noticeably progressed beyond the series' first installment, honing an ethereal, blunted sound with a handpicked roster of fairly unknown producers.
It seems like the lack-of-music we we're talking about on last week's Underrated Audio has finally come to an end. This past week we've seen huge songs drop from Drake, Fabolous, A$AP Rocky, Lupe Fiasco and Ace Hood, just to name a few. You'll see some of those songs topped our Top 100 and were featured on Top Tracks of the Week, but it wasn't only the big names dropping music this past week.
Many had written off, Dwyane Wade, who was hobbled with a knee injury throughout the 2012 Playoffs, but he was able to persevere and the Miami Heat dispensed of the Oklahoma City Thunder in a surprisingly short five game series to capture the franchise's second NBA Championship. D-Wade recently shouted out HNHH for continually supporting
To say a lot of stuff happened this week would be a complete understatement. So we won't and will just give you a short recap. For one, we're living in a world where there's a new D'Angelo album. Secondly, we may soon live in a world where Bobby Shmurda is behind bars. In less epochal/apocalyptic news, Nicki Minaj and J. Cole are having a moment after their recent album releases.
Have you ever scrolled through Instagram and instantly burst 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.
Eminem is one of the biggest things to happen to hip-hop, period. He challenged the status quo and found success as a white artist in a predominantly black industry. Though he was not the first white rapper to blow, Eminem is one of the few to be consistently ranked among the greatest rappers of all time.
What's up? This Tuesday afternoon is pretty slow on the news-front, but at least we've got some UA for your reading, and better yet, listening pleasure. I love this Tuesday 'cause a) it looks really nice outside and b) the HNHH office is practically empty (!!).
With Christmas approaching soon, everyone is getting into the holiday spirit-- rappers included. On this week's edition of Underrated Audio you'll find two themed tracks that are perfect for the holidays, as well as two other joints that you should feel free to bump any time of the year.

After a hiatus last week, Underrated Audio returns today to bring you several overlooked records that dropped in the past seven days. We've had an influx of mixtapes recently, which have provided us with most of these tracks-- no Lil Wayne on this feature though. Take a look through the tracks and let us know what your favorite underrated cut was this past week.
Game Changers is an HNHH feature that profiles artists who've left a strong mark on hip hop. Whether it be through creativity, influence, exposure or simply good timing, they've brought something to rap music that the game just wouldn't be the same without. This week, we've chosen to profile an inarguable game changer: RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan.
Underrated Audio aims to provide you with some dope looks from the last seven days that flew under most peoples' radars. While they may have received front-page placement on HNHH, they didn't get as many views as they deserve, so we shine a little more light on them right here.
Kali Uchis is a Colombian singer and songwriter gaining notoriety quickly with a growing fan base in Northern VA and internet buzz. Kali is based in D.C. and she received comparisons to Amy Winehouse shortly after she released "Know What I Want" back in October. She caught the eye of local radio hosts and made the Washington Post's list of what folks will be buzzing about in 2015.
In a career that spans two decades, eleven solo studio albums, a number of chart hits, and years of financial success, Jay-Z is definitely one of the greatest of all time. He now co-owns a NBA team in his native Brooklyn, he has altered the hip hop landscape numerous times, and as other artists have faded away, he has consistently been relevant, both culturally and musically.
Underrated Audio is back on our mission to supply you with exciting new music you may have missed upon initial browsing, from artists who haven't quite broken the mainstream. The talent is there, the quality uncut.
Whatever the conversation is in hip-hop this week, it'll be dominated by Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly. Even though it has almost as much live instrumentation as a Roots album, the epic project also manages to incorporate a ton of samples that pull from past eras of music.
