We give you a break-down of what it's like at Kanye West's "Yeezus" Tour, an event that all hip-hop fans deserve to attend.
Jay-Z basically dominated the web this past week with the release of Magna Carta Holy Grail and all the interviews and promo that followed.
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.
This week we see a new chart-topper arrive, the New York rapper who takes on that southern style, A$AP Rocky. Rocky's debut album, Long.Live.A$AP did surprisingly well. We see albums leak all the time-- usually it's just a week prior to the album's release though. In Rocky's case, we saw it leak a month early.
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.
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.
More than any other substance, marijuana has played a most crucial role in the uprising of rap music.
This week on Charts Don’t Lie, R&B artists who infuse their music with hip hop collaborations and sounds continue to rule, however things are about to change as A$AP Rocky’s studio debut is projected to top the Billboard 200 next week. In the interim, we see the holdovers from 2012 selling solid with some of the best albums of the year still appearing on the charts.
We have two new-comers to Charts Don't Lie this week, who come from opposite ends of the spectrum- Robin Thicke and Tech N9ne. Both artists had impressive debuts, with Thicke earning a #1 debut for the first time, and Tech N9ne earning his chart peak as well.
This week our newest entry in Charts Don't Lie is the former G.O.O.D. Music representer, Kid Cudi. The rapper announced his departure from G.O.O.D. Music shortly before the release of INDICUD, to the shock of most. Although Cudder assured fans it was an amicable split, it nonetheless gets us wondering as to the root cause.
This past week we saw an influx of themed content, surrounding Valentine's Day and the NBA All-Star Weekend. Rappers just love dropping material simultaneously, thus the site was busy with mixtapes and songs centered around either subject, resulting in some music getting pushed aside. Here are five tracks that may have been neglected in the V-Day and All-Star frenzy that occupied last week.
This week on Charts Don't Lie some of the less consistent rappers have fallen off, while others prove they're on the charts for the long-term. We already knew Justin Timberlake would be here awhile, after he went platinum in very little time following his album's debut.
RIAA Now Includes Audio & Video Song Streams In Gold & Platinum Certification May 9, 2013 at 11:11am 1 View
As the music industry continues to adjust to the age of the Internet, The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has announced a new change in their certification of Gold and Platinum awards.
We saw a brief hiatus of Charts Don't Lie over the holiday break, but that doesn't mean sales slowed down, in fact, it appears to have been the opposite. Over the holiday season, many artists saw a rise on the charts as more copies were sold of their respective albums. So this week, you'll see artists featured that probably haven't appeared on Charts for a while.

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)
Perhaps Snoop made a poor career choice by switching from hip hop to reggae. If he truly wanted to move units he should consider an R&B persona. Rhythm and Blues singers have been performing mightily on these charts as of late, but this week they took over fully. Only one “Hip Hop” album managed to move any significant
John Wall's Teammate Doesn't Want To See Him "Butt Naked" In Magazine Jul 14, 2013 at 05:14pm 7 Views
John Wall and Kenneth Faried shed their uniforms for ESPN Magazine’s “The Body” issue as both players posed for ‘tastefully’ nude photos. The issue is supposed to help bring awareness to the body, and make people feel more comfortable with who they are. One person who was uncomfortable with Wall’s poses was teammate Martell Webster. When asked by a member of the Washington Post
HNHH continues to tackle the issue of sales in the hip-hop world. This week we had two new-comers top the charts, as well as an old head make an appearance. While Macklemore & Ryan Lewis perform the best this week, it's becoming more and more obvious that major labels may slowly be heading the way of the tall T, as independent labels manage to do it just as big. Not
Charts Don’t Lie… how easily you’re hated. Understandably so considering math can be agitating. That said this ongoing chart is an aggregate of the best record keeping the industry has to offer. From Nielsen Soundscan to Billboard and beyond, these calculations are here to provide important information. And this week is no different. For starters, as projected, 2

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.
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
