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
This is one of the singles off Big
Boi's upcoming album Vicious Lies & Dangerous...
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
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...
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
to most off producer The Alchemist's album Russain Roulette which drops July...
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. ROMANCE & HIP HOP? Last...
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). All this to say, I'm...
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.
Brother Ali is not one of those artists
who lets go a song a day, so when he does put out music I pay
attention, and he...
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. As a founding member of the Beastie Boys, Yauch was largely responsible for the most successful...
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
drops his project Control System. Every song I've heard off...

More than any other substance, marijuana has played a most crucial role in the uprising of rap music. And though he doesn't deserve all of the credit, who knows how the genre would have formulated had it not been for the Ambassador of Pot himself, Snoop Dogg.With the recent wave of weed obsessed rappers, new marquees of hip hop have arisen, from producer Clams Casino's cloud rap beats for ASAP...
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
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,
and made that clear from the start....

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
become a regular...
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. Due to the fact that she signed with a label like Young Money, whose primary focus is to generate revenue (ergo, pop), it...
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.
I'm not sure how Travis Scott was able to get a Tip feature, but its surprisingly dope. It's not a conventional beat for T.I., but Travis Scott is usually on some other...

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.
Nicki Minaj has taken rap, pop and R&B by storm, and melded it into her own cornucopia of pop-synth other-worldly...
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)
1/2 of the Cool Kids dropped his solo tape this past week, “Premier Politics 1.5,”...
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)
Randomly, Redman let go his version of some classic Eminem, and he definitely does it justice. It's reminiscent of Em's track...
