Weekly review of the Hip-Hop and R&B sales/charts.
HNHH Does BET Green Carpet With Snoop Dogg, Nelly, Yo Gotti, Bone Thugs & More (Part 1) Oct 2, 2013 at 09:32am 166 Views
HNHH hit up the BET Hip Hop Awards this Sunday, and we got our very own Broady The Joker to tear up the Green Carpet for some interviews. We talked to Nelly about his new album, asked Snoop about getting into stand-up, as well as hanging out with Cash Out, Tiara Thomas, Yo Gotti, August Alsina, Lola Monroe and more!
Well, it looks like DJ Khaled will in fact not be suffering from success with his latest album. His second week on the charts finds him plummeting more than 20 spots, and moving less than 10,000 units. However if there is one rapper we could say has suffered from success, it is most definitely Eminem.
With the 4th of July having happened this past week, and people still celebrating this weekend, the blogging has been toned down the past few days. However, at the beginning of the week, we saw notable mixtape releases from Ty Dolla $ign, PartyNextDoor and Joey Bada$$.
Clearly there’s some bad blood between Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife, Siovaughn Funches-Wade, as she had filed a lawsuit for a million dollars but has no “voluntarily dismissed” the case. The lawsuit had claimed that the two signed a contract back in 2006 that certain endorsement money would be placed in a joint account where Funches-Wade could access it, but that Dwyane had voluntarily bee
This past week proved to be a big one for hip-hop. Definitely a week to be remembered, with three big rap albums (and one r'n'b album) all dropping on the same day (and every one knows this date by now)-- June 18. While Kanye West, J. Cole and Mac Miller had the spotlight for the majority of the week, that's not to say there weren't some dope releases from other artists.
As we do every week, we aim to bring you overlooked records that dropped in the past seven days with Underrated Audio. These were cuts that didn't get a ton of views, so we're hoping to give them a boost with a second look. This week's edition features music from Tsu Surf, Roc Marciano, GLC and more.
Eminem is one of the biggest things to happen to hip-hop, period. He challenged the status quo and found success as a white artist in a predominantly black industry. Though he was not the first white rapper to blow, Eminem is one of the few to be consistently ranked among the greatest rappers of all time.
Eminem week officially hit us with full force. We've seen legendary rappers like Jay Z and Kanye West both drop albums this past year, but none compared to the chart domination of Slim Shady. As we mentioned last week, a few of Em's old albums had popped back up on the Billboard 200, presumably due to anticipation for new one, MMLP2.
New Years Eve celebrations went down just a few days ago, so this weekend you may still be recovering from all your mid-week partying. While you do that, you can take a look at the four chill cuts sitting in Underrated Audio this week. No records too turned up this weekend. From a little-known Arkansas rap group to Sean Price, here are four pieces of audio we're giving a second look.
With the Yeezus tour back in full swing (albeit several dates cancelled), Ye is back to his usual antics, and that's a good thing. The Yeezus tour is far from your average hip-hop show, as those who have attended know. The event is cinematic and theatrical, with actors coming on stage (including one dressed as Jesus) through out the show, Ye ranting, and fans generally rejoicing.
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 everyone's favorite dope boy Pusha T finally made his Charts debut, with My Name Is My Name. The album, which has been praised highly by most, managed a #4 debut, selling on the lower-end of the projected amount, with 75k. While it's solid numbers for a rapper who's been in the underground for most of his career, what does it say about those supporting 'real rap'?
This segment of Charts Don't Lie is relatively subdued, as we have no big new entries to speak of just yet. While Childish Gambino's new album, Because The Internet, dropped last week, it has yet to start charting although it is expected to sell a pretty respectable amount, especially considering it's double the amount of his last release, Camp.
This week we overloaded with music, thanks in most part to Halloween-- rappers love dropping their shit on a holiday of some sort or on some themed tip, and this year was no different. Among the ton of mixtapes and singles we received, we've picked out four in particular that deserve a second look in this week's Underrated Audio.
Underrated Audio brings you four tracks from the past seven days that didn't get enough looks. This week Kidd Kidd offers a tribute to both Trayvon Martin and Ahlittia North, Sango drops some music to vibe too with help from JMSN, R.A. The Rugged Man drops a serious remix and Stalley stunts on "A-Wax." Check out the songs in the gallery above.
Underrated Audio provides you with a few joints we feel deserve an extra look or two from the last seven days. This week we give some more shine to A$AP Nast, another New Yorker who's a female by the name of Leaf, Nikko Lafre and Shlohmo. Peep those four cuts in the gallery above, and let us know what underrated piece of audio you've been digging this week.
HNHH spoke to random people on the street to test their knowledge of Hip Hop trivia for both popular and lesser known facts. The results were interesting. In this first episode, see if you can tell which artist only sold 1,000 copies of their debut album, was not a backup dancer prior to becoming a rapper and who wasn't an artist mentioned in Kendrick Lamar's "Control" verse.
This week Big Sean and Juicy J enter the Billboard 200, debuting one after another. Each rapper sold a respectable amount, however, it's nothing too crazy. Sean Don actually sold less than his debut album, although he promoted Hall Of Fame as better than his debut, perhaps the fans didn't care that much? They cared enough though-- he moved 72,000 units, which gave him a #3 debut.
With Christmas approaching soon, everyone is getting into the holiday spirit-- rappers included. On this week's edition of Underrated Audio you'll find two themed tracks that are perfect for the holidays, as well as two other joints that you should feel free to bump any time of the year.
This week has been Drizzy Drake everything, with the official release of Nothing Was The Same and a bunch of promo for it. Drake has not started taking over the charts yet, but that will change next week when we get the results of his first week sales.
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.
This past week saw a few big mixtape drops, from the likes of Game and Nipsey Hussle, Lil Durk, and The Ying Yang Twins (jokes...but they really did drop a mixtape). Childish Gambino came through with a new record, "Yaphet Kotto," which is always a big deal since he's dropping music far and in between (although a new album is on the way).
The past week brought Christmas, which undoubtedly brought sales in all departments, music or otherwise. However not all hip-hop artists were lucky enough to benefit from this Christmas season. Although B.o.B released his album Underground Luxury just in time to enjoy some holiday giving, his album fell completely flat, managing to debut at #22 this week on the Billboard 200, moving only 35k.
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.
