HNHH breaks down 20 of the best horror film references in hip-hop - not the "Top 20", simply 20 of the best.
This feature highlights a hand-picked selection of some of the bigger tracks of the week. We have chosen a few of the tracks that landed within our top 25 most played, focusing on those that stood out, and left room for discussion.
This week we really saw the effects of Kendrick Lamar's verse on "Control" transfer over to the charts. The rapper's debut album, which officially went platinum this past week, has been slowly creeping back up the charts, something we've been seeing on Charts Don't Lie over the past weeks. Rather than jumping the usual few places this week though, K.
In an attempt to draw an even bigger parallel between the hip hop community and the sneaker world, it's time to take a look at some of the most iconic hip hop artists and their sneaker counterparts. Based on what the sneaker/artist represents, both in history and as a person, we'll take a look at the similarities between 10 artists and the sneaker that best represents them.
This week r'n'b singer and hit-maker extraordinaire, The-Dream, enters the charts with his latest effort, IV Play. The-Dream is an interesting artist to analyze, because while he creates hits on top of hits for tons artists in the game, his own fan-base is much smaller, yet extremely devout to the singer.

SneakerMob.com linked up with DJ Neil Armstrong. You may have seen him on stage for Jay-Z's performance at Obama's inauguration, perhaps you've heard a world famous DJ Neil Armstrong mixtape, seen him in an adidas commercial featuring stars such as David Beckham & Snoop Lion ( Snoop Dogg ) or DJ'ing at an adidas event in your home town.
HOT97 Summer Jam XX Recap: Festival Village With Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$, A$AP Ferg & More! Jun 5, 2013 at 06:00pm 9,011 Views
The Festival Village stage was a special event for HNHH, as we actually served as a sponsor, and had our own tent at the show. So not only did we get to take in all the performances, but also had Kid Ink, A$AP Ferg, and Action Bronson stop by the tent for autographs and interviews.
Dissecting the funniest, most entertaining, and outrageous tweets from some of the biggest names in rap who are on Twitter.

Dissecting the foibles of the hip hop community as expressed in under 140 characters on Twitter.

This week Trey Songz's Trigga makes its debut on the Billboard 200 at #1, giving Trey his second #1 album in a row, following up Chapter V. Although Chapter V sold more records in its opening week (135k), Trigga came close under it with 105k. That's still a respectable follow up-- something we unfortunately cannot say about Robin Thicke.
Fans have been anticipating Tyga's debut YMCMB album “Careless World: Rise Of The Last King” for awhile. It experienced several delays, and almost didn't make it on store shelves because of an uncleared sample.
Talking To Nipsey Hussle & 9th Wonder On "Face The World" & "TM3" Jun 12, 2013 at 01:46pm 13,213 Views
Although Nipsey Hussle has yet to release a debut album, the West Coast native keeps his fans locked with a steady flow of strong mixtapes. His Marathon series of mixtapes have seen Nipsey grow as an artist and evolve into someone unique in a rap game that is over-saturated with drug-talking and gang-affiliated rappers.
This week we see Trey Songz maintain a spot within the Billboard 200's top 10, although he fell from the grace of #1. We're also seeing just how quickly Robin Thicke's Paula is going to fall off, as it already finds itself nearing the edge of the top 50.

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.

The first week of April has arrived, and along with it came a few jams from some of the usual suspects: King Chip, Action Bronson, Young Roddy and Travi$ Scott. These four are no strangers to Underrated Audio, but soon one or two of them may get too big for the UA circuit and move on up to Top Tracks of the Week.
As an actor, Common has definitely been in some major mainstream flicks and get his due recognition for it. As a rapper, Common borders on the underground/conscious scene, although he's not fully immersed in it because he does do double duty acting.
