There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked (with the exception of anything Drake ever drops.) This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.
HNHH was on the road for Hot 97's Summer Jam so I'm a day late on this Underrated Audio ish. Apologies. And just like that, it's June!! You know it's summer when you start getting good music. See below. Travi$ Scott- Up Feat. Casey Veggies Travi$ Scott has been featured on Meek Mill's Dreamchasers 2 "I Get It," and there's a rumour he may be joining the
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. This week features Tyler, The Creator, Nicki Minaj, Lil B and more!
Last week Waka Flocka dropped his latest mixtape Salute Me Or Shoot Me Vol. 4: Banned From America, and HNHH was on hand for the exclusive listening party at Patchwerk Studio in Atlanta. While talking to Waka, we asked him about what he’ll do when he reaches the two million followers plateau on Twitter, and what special track
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. This week features Tyler, The Creator, Action Bronson, Chief Keef and more!
Last week we profiled N.O. spitter Lil Wayne, but today we're taking a look through the catalog of Chi-Town legend Kanye West.Kanye West doesn't do small-scale. Many talk of his humble beginnings as the young rapper who said “everybody self-conscious I'm just the first to admit it.”, but fail to mention the fact that he was calling himself a prophet AT THE SAME DAMN TIME.
French Montana joins Charts Don't Lie this week, with his debut album Excuse My French. French, Diddy and the whole Bad Boy team went hard with promo for this one, rounded up the biggest features in the game, but the album wasn't able to move more than 50k opening week.
Heat In These Streets will give you the low-down on choice rappers putting on for a specific city and advancing the sound of hip-hop at the same time. For the first edition, we profile rappers making noise for Atlanta, a current hot-bed for auto-tuned, unique (sometimes weird), and creative rappers. Let us know if there is a city you'd like to see up next.
The Roots are the greatest hip hop band of all time, hands down. From the streets of Philadelphia to late night TV, they have conquered each and every stage they've graced over their twenty-eighty year career. Questlove is a cultural icon, an authority on hip hop, accomplished author, a real-deal DJ, and elite drummer.
As you probably heard last night, Drake started yet another trend with his #HoodGrammys on Instagram. That's all well and good, but he only announced 5 awards, and to be honest there was a slight OVO-family bias with some of them (PARTYNEXTDOOR with mixtape of the year? Bruh.) So we've decided to use this week's Top 10 instalment fill in all the missing categories.
After getting two big albums, Big Sean's Dark Sky Paradise and Chris Brown & Tyga's Fan Of A Fan: The Album, last week, this week has been all about the singles. Everyone from Ludacris to Juicy J to Wale seemed to drop off a new track, and so this edition of Samples Of The Week focuses on three of the best we've heard recently.
LeBron James says that Allen Iverson is "pound for pound" the greatest to ever play in the NBA. There's been a lot of talk lately about LeBron James' place among the greatest of all-time.
People do not like change. Music fans, especially. When the use of Auto-Tune exploded in the mid-2000s, many were skeptical. Today, many still are. Since its creation in 1997, Auto-Tune has crept its way into virtually every genre of music, most notably Hip-hop/R&B.
50 Cent is no stranger to controversy, having feuded with just about every big name in the hip hop game. However, his latest mixtape shows that for all his enemies, Fifty’s made the right friends.
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.
HotNewHipHop's On The Come Up series profiles rising stars in the rap game that show strong promise and the will to succeed. Most of the time, they're new to the site but deserve some shine. We will profile artists and producers ranging from those in the deep underground to artists just about to bubble up into the mainstream that you may have missed.
It’s official: Pharrell Williams is back. With the recent success of songs like “Get Lucky”, “Blurred Lines” and his newest Oscar-nominated single “Happy”, Pharrell has reclaimed his spot in the R&B royal family and is killing it. Not that he was ever really gone, since he’s been co-producing for other artists throughout.
Yasiin Bey has taken on the role as a hip-hop elder. He speaks on important issues and is often times regarded as a spokesperson for the culture along with cats like Talib Kweli, Questlove, Q-Tip, etc.
Two years ago, Jay-Z and Kanye West joined forces and crowned themselves the kings of rap. After an extensive worldwide Watch The Throne tour, the two went back to their separate careers to work on solo projects. Although they both welcomed a brand new baby in the last year and a half, they couldn’t be in more different places musically.
2013 was undoubtedly a great year for rap music. If you are a die-hard hip-hop head, you are probably praying that 2014 will continue along the same lines, if not one-up 2013. Now that we're examining some of the releases lined up for this year, the chances look good.
Ever resilient and defiant, Big K.R.I.T. drops K.R.I.T. (King Remembered in Time) for hip-hop heads to feast on. Placing a stake in Mississippi, K.R.I.T. presents a project to deliver his message that he’s a force to be reckoned with in the rap game.
