    Underrated Audio aims to provide you with some dope looks from the last seven days that flew under most peoples' radars. While they may have received front-page placement on HNHH, they didn't get as many views as they deserve, so we shine a little more light on them right here. On this week's edition we scrounge up music from rappers on the rise, some of whom just inked a independent label deal...

    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. Thicke attained worldwide success with 2013's Blurred...

    Rappers are storytellers of the modern age. The media often misunderstands these narrators of society, but future generations will recognize them as windows into the past. Truly talented rappers have the ability to connect with people through their words, which may or may not be written down prior to the stage of recording. Some argue that the work of rappers who do not scribble down words...

    Last week we saw r'n'b/pop take over the Billboard 200, and this week we finally see the return of rap to some of the top spots within the Billboard 200. Impressively, G-Eazy's third studio album comes in highest this week nabbing the #3 spot. Obviously his grind is starting to pay off, as the independent artist sold 46,000 units opening week, basically matching the numbers Fif's Animal Ambition...

    This week J. Lo returns to the Billboard 200, although her opening week numbers are not as strong as previous releases from the pop star. Back in the 2000s when J. Lo was really in her prime (although we cannot deny she is still looking hot these days), the singer would easily sell upwards of 200,000 units opening week. However her comeback album, A.K.A., didn't even manage to break the 50k mark....

    When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh...

    Slow and steady wins the race, or so they say. In an era of immediate consumption and instant gratification, we want something the second it becomes available, if not before. We wait in line overnight so we can be the first in our group of friends to have the newest iPhone, Call of Duty, or retro Jawwdins. Being a first adopter is a pride thing, and some care about it more than others, but nobody...

    This week we saw quite a few albums get pushed down thanks to new entries on the Billboard 200 that weren't strictly hip-hop. Jack White's Lazaretto took over the #1 spot, and various other albums, including a country record and "The Fault In Our Stars" movie soundtrack, rounded out the top 5. We won't spend too much time discussing those LPs as you likely have no interest in knowing where...

    50 Cent entered the Billboard 200 this week, with Animal Ambition moving more than the projected amount, although it's still not the numbers Fif used to do. It's independent numbers though, with a showing of 47,000 units. It will likely be quiet on the charts until we approach June 24th, when we've got multiple albums, including ones from Ab-Soul and Riff Raff, dropping. Until then, we'll have to...

    This week our one new entry belongs to Mariah Carey, who recently released her umpteeth album, Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse. While the sales show she doesn't quite have that star power she once did, it's still a respectable debut of #3. Meanwhile, we're waiting to hear the final numbers for 50 Cent's comeback LP Animal Ambition, which he dropped perfectly in tune with...

    Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" is about to begin a summer takeover, if the Billboard charts are any indication. The rapper's lead single from The New Classic reached new heights this week, as it obtained the #1 spot on the Hot 100, making it Iggy's first #1 single. At the same time, she received a spot at #2 on the Hot 100 thanks to a feature on Ariana Grande's "Problem," giving her two hit singles at...
