    This week we see Tyga make an entry onto the charts, while Tyler, the Creator, whose album dropped last week, fell quite a bit from his impressive #3 debut. Tyga's Hotel California is definitely a venture into the more typical sound that has defined Tyler's career, with plenty of DJ Mustard-esque beats and the accompanying flow. However, maybe this signature sound isn't the signature fans are...

    This week's Underrated Audio is mainly composed of artists who are on the rise, from Toronto rapper Rich Kidd, to the Def Jam signee, August Alsina. Although most of these artists have yet to really establish themselves in the game (we can gloss over Cory Gunz, who also appears in UA this week), they delivered quality tracks this past week which we’d like to shine some more light on. Some of...

    This week we see a new entry in Chart's Dont Lie, with Tyler, the Creator's WOLF having dropped on April 2nd. The rapper is definitely expanding his fanbase, with this album impressively debuting at #3 on the Billboard 200. Tyler has been known for extreme and controversial lyrics, which may have made him less accessible to the general public in the past. Now it seems like the public is...

    Dizzy Wright was recently crowned a 2013 XXL Freshmen (by the people's vote, nonetheless), which is sure to make his stock in the rap game rise. However, he's as humble and as hard-working as ever. This is evident on his new track, "Maintain," which offers support for people and their every-day struggles, instead of glamorizing hard times, as rap can do.We called upon Dizzy Wright and...

    This week's unintentional theme for Underrated Audio seems to be dark and trippy tracks-- from Jarren Benton spitting craziness, Don Trip giving us mellowed out and dark bars, and the Flatbush Zombies delivering drug-addled rhymes, all bases were covered in either department. Check out those three tracks, as well as two more that are on the lighter side, by clicking through the gallery...

    This week we saw Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience break another record, after first topping Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV in first week sales, it became the first record in 2013 to crack one million sales, going platinum just two weeks after it dropped. On the other end of the spectrum, we saw Weezy F's album, I Am Not A Human Being II, sell a strong 217k, but it did not really live up to...

    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. Namely, Travi$ Scott, who almost reached 24,000 views on his Wale-featured...

    This week we were extremely impressed by the numbers that Justin Timberlake pulled with his new album, The 20/20 Experience. Within the hip-hop/r’n’b-sphere, we haven’t seen a chart topper sell the amount JT sold in a while. The artist pulled in 980k, which funnily enough takes away a record from Lil Wayne, who happens to also have a new album that released this past week.  Wayne...

    Well, today is the day that Lil Wayne's album I Am Not A Human Being II officially dropped. Although we're positive it will sell given Weezy's huge fanbase, we're not so sure about the content there within. If you're not in a Wayne mood today, we've got five new tracks from the past week that we're tryna show a little more love too, so give them a listen.

    This week we await the official numbers for Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience, which is projected to sell huge amounts (750-800k),  and will no doubt take over Charts Don’t Lie for a period of time. Next week will also have Lil Wayne’s I Am Not A Human Being II dropping, which is also sure to make a splash on the charts in the coming week. This week however, we see hardly...

    As we near the end of March we've been getting more good-ass music coming in each and every week. This past week we saw the underground circuit drop several dope tracks (from King Chip to the Flatbush Zombies), and we've rounded the best five cuts for you to check out here. Randomly enough, it seems to be a strictly East Coast/Midwest affair on UA this week, with Detroit, Chicago, New Jersey,...

    As the past few months have been slow all-around when it comes to music, we are not seeing many, if any, new hip-hop entries on the charts. However this shortage of music is coming to a close; the past week or two have seen many big songs drop, and a mixtape or three. We'll definitely begin to see some new names on Charts Don't Lie as early as next week,...

    Tha Joker has been steadily grinding alongside producer, Big Fruit, for some time now. The  two southerners first linked up in 2006, when Joker joined Big Fruit's independent label. Although the two have since parted ways label-wise, they have remained frequent collaborators. The chemistry between the two is obvious on any Big Fruit record that Tha Joker hops on. Tha Joker has released mixtape...

    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....

    On Charts Don't Lie this week we familiar faces, along with one that may seem completely random: Flo Rida. We'll get to that one in a minute. As for the regulars, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis see their best chart peak this week since they debuted at #2, with a leap from #16 to #4. Once more, it seems like promotion is on the rapper and producer's side, as an appearance on Saturday Night Live...
