    There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific bars are often overlooked. This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions. Keep in mind, these are the most noteworthy lyrics of the week, not necessarily the best. Also, it's hard to get everything right - if you notice any errors, don't hesitate...
  • 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. Garnering success after the release of his second studio album XXX last year, the Detroit-born rapper is more confident in his weirdness and...

    At the beginning of October we heard DJ Premier confirm that he will produce a full Nas album one day-- which got us excited, and also got us thinking about what other albums we're really, really hoping will drop in the not-so-distant future. Many avid hip-hop fans have a similar wish-list to ours-- Dr. Dre's Detox, an Outkast album, that infamous Kendrick Lamar & J. Cole joint project, to name...
  • 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. Yet,...

  • Review: Ty Dolla $ign's "Beach House 2"

    Ty Dolla $ign delivered his Beach House 2 mixtape just in time for summer. At first glance, the tape's tracklist looks iffy. There's at least one guest appearance on each song, something which is often frowned upon by devout fans and critics. However, flooding a project with features has been done successfully before, as was the case with The Game's 2012 album Jesus Piece. As for Beach House...

    Things have changed since the days of Yo! MTV Raps. As professional camera gear becomes cheaper and more accessible, and with the free marketing potential of YouTube, more and more artists are producing quality music videos. They don’t necessarily need a budget of millions or major label support to put out dope visuals anymore. They don’t need heavy rotation on BET to get noticed, either.Here...

    You might remember Sasha Del Valle as Princess from 50 Cent's directorial debut "Before I Self Destruct". The 23 year old model has also done work in music videos, with some notable appearances in Jay-Z's "Roc Boyz", and G-Unit's "Rider Pt. 2", as well as showing up in the pages of XXL and King magazine. Sasha is definitely an up and comer in the vixen game, and came through to HNHH for an...
  • Word Up: Hip-Hop Through The Wire
    4,545 Views
    The Wire is a critically-acclaimed T.V. show, probably one of the greatest ever. Although it didn't have a large audience while it aired, its fan base has since grown ten-fold, and many fans of the show are within the hip-hop community. For those who are unfamiliar with the HBO crime drama, let me give you a little background: it's set in Baltimore, Maryland, and focuses on the illegal drug...

    Interesting juxtaposition we have in the first two weeks of December. This week saw the release of J. Cole's 2014 Forest Hills Drive, an album projected to be highest selling hip-hop project of the year while having more than its fair share of aw shucks moments. We're turning up next week, though. The Pinkprint is coming out, and those thinkpieces will be on their way soon. And after...

    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. Third time's...
