    Underrated Audio: June 22-28
    This week we keep it short and sweet for y'all. We've got four cuts from upstarts in music, who all deliver vastly different sounds, from the indie-kinda-rap OnCue spits, to the r'n'b ish JMSN delivers, to the '90s sounding rap from Dillon Cooper. We also threw in a cut from Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks.
    28 Grams: Hip-Hop Instagram Recap (Aug 9)
    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. 
    Samples Of The Week: July 17
    When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. 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". 
    Review: Odd Future's "The OF Tape Vol. 2"
    21st century Hip-Hop has followed a simple formula for the most part; cash, money, and hoes have dominated its lyrical landscape. Still, with puberty underway, art form and the anxiety of adolescence has led to a variety of psychedelic changes, none more evident than the movement known as Odd Future. This band of Fairfax skaters represent rap’s first cult status offering since Wu-Tang.
    Fan Perspective: That's That Shit I Don't Like
    Don't get me wrong, I love Hip Hop. Like, I really love Hip Hop. Eat it, breathe it, sleep it, kind of thing. But just like anything else, there's always improvements to be made. If we're simply satisfied with the genre just as it is, we'll get complacent, and the quality will suffer.
    Iggy Azalea Talks "Trap Gold" At SneakerPimps
    Fresh off her EP release Glory, Iggy Azalea is seemingly everywhere in the media these days. She spoke to HNHH about her upcoming album The New Classic, how she idolized Missy Elliot growing up, why dropping out of school was necessary for her career, how her relationship with T.I.

    Review: Lloyd Banks' "V6"
    Lloyd Banks released his anticipated mixtape, V6, last week, proving once again that he can hold his own solo. Although the G-Unit member has reportedly not spoken to 50 Cent in almost a year, it seems he doesn't need too. This last release was stronger than Fif's previous release. This is Banks' second project in the past eight months, following Cold Corner 2 in November, which

    On The Come Up: YS
    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.

    Lyrics Of The Week: April 19-25
    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. 
    Review: Danny Brown's "Old"
    It was strange when the tracklist for Old was released, as the album was divided into two different halves, but at first listen it's obvious why: they represent two sides of Danny Brown's multifaceted psyche and personality, as well as the old and the new.
    Rebirth Pt. 2: The Evolution Of A Rap Collaboration
    Competition breeds success. No disrespect to Drake, but this motto could trump Y.O.L.O. So much so that, in hip-hop, the saying can be modified to read “competition breeds superiority.” Nowhere is that more present than in the situation known as the collaboration.

    Baron Davis Claims He Was Abducted By Aliens Or Illuminati
    Baron Davis was one of the most talented players in throughout the first decade of the 2000s, and as versatile as he was as a guard he has dabbled in various artistic fields such as movies, music, and fashion, so it’s safe to say he is an open-minded person. While on a podcast for comedians Neal Brennan (co-creator of Chappelle Show) and Moshe Kasher, the West Coast point guard told a story how

    Rap Elect: If Rappers Ran The Government
    We already know what rappers think about today's election, but what if those same rappers were the ones running the government? Election season has been in full swing since the beginning of the fall, and as the nation heads to the polls to decide the future of the United States for the next four years, one could only imagine how this country would be if the next President picked rappers to ho

    HNHH Trivia: Test Your Hip Hop Knowledge (Episode 1)
    HNHH spoke to random people on the street to test their knowledge of Hip Hop trivia for both popular and lesser known facts.  The results were interesting. In this first episode, see if you can tell which artist only sold 1,000 copies of their debut album, was not a backup dancer prior to becoming a rapper and who wasn't an artist mentioned in Kendrick Lamar's "Control" verse.
