Weekly review of the Hip-Hop and R&B sales/charts.
This week's UA brings you two up-tempo beats and two dark beats to enjoy in the summer heat. That kinda rhymed but it wasn't my intention. Also to clarify about UA, it's not necessarily for unknown artists, it's just artists that I'm feeling who's music HNHH posted but didn't get as much play time by HNHH viewers as I would have hoped. Aight. Sir Michael Rocks- Now You Do
You know what it is. My favourite cuts from the past week, there's probably one or two you overlooked so now's your time to look them over. Some solid summer jams. Jeremih- Val Venis (Remix) I've really been digging Jeremih's shit lately (see: this). He's doing a little bit of rap-singing on this and I like it. The beat is dope, laced with some hi-pitched chiming
Wowwww I can't believe it's already July. A lot of good ish has been steadily dropping since summer started. G.O.O.D. Music has been releasing new singles, MMG, and all the other relevant crews I don't feel like listing. I wish it was summer year round. Big Boi- Gossip Feat. UGK & Big K.R.I.T. This is one of the singles off Big Boi's upcoming album Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors, and
Today is Tuesday but it feels like a Monday...and since UA is usually posted on a Monday, we'll pretend today is Monday and tomorrow is still Wednesday 'cause fuck a Tuesday. Clams Casino- Always Have A Choice One of my favorite producers at the moment, Clams Casino, takes to Twitter every now and then to let go random instrumentals he's done and it's always appreciated. Clams has
This past week we didn't see too many dope tunes drop, the internet was taken over by that whole Drake and Chris Brown fight. However, these three songs deserve a spot on your iPod. The Alchemist- Flight Confirmation Feat. ScHoolboy Q & Danny Brown This was the song I was looking forward
Volume one established the idea that an enduring fan of Hip Hop is committed come hell or more auto-tune. It’s easy to complain about the bad, or to become complacent with the good enough. However, if this metaphorical marriage is going to work out, forgiveness must be given for the mistakes artists make, and fans need to be rewarded with quality product in turn.
Last week was pretty reasonable on the music-front, this week is about to get mad busy though, there's a ton of albums and mixtapes dropping. I haven't downloaded a complete new mixtape for a minute though, except for Clams Casino's Instrumental Tape 2 (any song of which I could have posted here...but instead I'll just tell you to go check it out entirely).
There were a lot of huge records that dropped this past week (two, at least, which Meek Mill & Drake were a part of), anyways, while I'm sure most people checked out those, here's some that might have been neglected. Brother Ali- Not A Day Goes By (Prod. Jake One) Brother Ali is not one of those artists who lets go a song a day, so when he does put out music I pay
Almost three years after finding a cancerous tumor on his parotid gland Adam Yauch (MCA) acquiesced to the illness on May 4th, 2012. Since then fans, friends, and fellow artists have mourned Adam’s life and work through their words and actions.In truth there is much to mourn, and much to remember.
It was a good week for Underrated Audio. See below for the awesome tracks from last week that didn't get played as much as they should.Ab-Soul- SOPA Feat. ScHoolboy Q With Kendrick Lamar blowing up and ScHoolboy Q next up, Ab-Soul is oft over-looked in the TDE camp (along with Jay Rock). Anyways, I think that will soon change when he
More than any other substance, marijuana has played a most crucial role in the uprising of rap music.
Last week there wasn't an overwhelming amount of dope music released, but it was 4/20 so we got a lot of new music to smoke to. With that being said, here's a few gems.Vince Staples- Twitch (Prod. Michael Ozuwuru) Odd Future affiliated rapper, Vince Staples, spits a story about a woman getting knocked up by a guy who just doesn't give a fuck about her,
By now you've probably seen, or at least heard about, the Tupac hologram which debuted at Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg's performance at Coachella. It took the internet by storm, and was praised by many; but there is still a sense of hesitancy in accepting that holograms are the 'way of the future.' I don't think I'm alone in saying that I hope that the Tupac hologram doesn't
The first time we heard Nicki Minaj was on “Monster,” a track that includes heavyweights Jay-Z, Rick Ross and Kanye, it was her ferocious verse that stood out the most. It automatically exhibited her potential to be this generation's dopest female M.C.
You probably know the dilly if you are a frequent HNHH viewer, but if not, this is some audio that (I feel) may have been overlooked from last week. Listen below. Travis Scott- Animal Feat. T.I.
Long viewed as an art form mired in chauvinism and bravado, hip hop is in the midst of ‘gender-fication’ with an upheaval in how we view, listen, and consume the music. Talking about your glock while holding your cock, is no longer limited to male rappers.
Four tracks this week for you to enjoy, if you haven't already. Phil Ade- Hatin (Faded Remix) Phil Ade takes on Tyga's “Faded” and turns it into “Hatin” for all his haters (and fans too). I hope we get a new Phil Ade project soon. Sir Michael Rocks- Chill Feat. Like (of Pac Div)
Check out some music you may have overlooked this past week. Rockie Fresh- Want My Blood Feat. The Kickdrums & DZ Deathrays This doesn't sound like your typical rap song, Rockie flows over a synth-based beat. Redman- Just Don't Give A Fuck (Remix)
Check out some underground/slept-on tunes you may have missed last week. Ro Ransom- Temperature
Word up HNHH viewers, the Grammys were on last night, and even if you missed it, you can catch all the relevant performances here.
A lot of tracks get posted on HNHH and some of them fly under your radar, maybe because you've never heard of the artist before, you just didn't feel like clicking, or it wasn't labeled “very hot.” Whatever the reason, we're gunna start exposing some of the audio from the past week that you may have slept on every Monday...
Word up HNHH viewers, welcome to a new feature on HNHH where we will discuss some relevant shit going on in the hip-hop world. It shall be called Word Up. Let us begin.
