    Tha Joker has been steadily grinding alongside producer, Big Fruit, for some time now. The  two southerners first linked up in 2006, when Joker joined Big Fruit's independent label. Although the two have since parted ways label-wise, they have remained frequent collaborators. The chemistry between the two is obvious on any Big Fruit record that Tha Joker hops on. Tha Joker has released mixtape...

    Exactly 16 years ago, the rap game changed forever. Christopher George Latore Wallace, more commonly known as The Notorious B.I.G. was shot and killed during a drive by shooting in Los Angeles. This after the equally devastating murder of Tupac Shakur several months earlier. All on the coat tails of one of the most intense, violent and publicized feuds in music history, but that’s not what...

    This week we await the official numbers for Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience, which is projected to sell huge amounts (750-800k),  and will no doubt take over Charts Don’t Lie for a period of time. Next week will also have Lil Wayne’s I Am Not A Human Being II dropping, which is also sure to make a splash on the charts in the coming week. This week however, we see hardly...

    This week we were extremely impressed by the numbers that Justin Timberlake pulled with his new album, The 20/20 Experience. Within the hip-hop/r’n’b-sphere, we haven’t seen a chart topper sell the amount JT sold in a while. The artist pulled in 980k, which funnily enough takes away a record from Lil Wayne, who happens to also have a new album that released this past week.  Wayne...

    This week's Underrated Audio is mainly composed of artists who are on the rise, from Toronto rapper Rich Kidd, to the Def Jam signee, August Alsina. Although most of these artists have yet to really establish themselves in the game (we can gloss over Cory Gunz, who also appears in UA this week), they delivered quality tracks this past week which we’d like to shine some more light on. Some of...

    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'? That there aren't that...

    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.

    This week continues to be a good one on the hip-hop front.

    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. However, there are some chart main-stays which we couldn't have predicted when the album initially dropped-- such as Macklemore...

    Although Nipsey Hussle has yet to release a debut album, the West Coast native keeps his fans locked with a steady flow of strong mixtapes. His Marathon series of mixtapes have seen Nipsey grow as an artist and evolve into someone unique in a rap game that is over-saturated with drug-talking and gang-affiliated rappers. The Marathon is continuing with the upcoming third mixtape, TM3: Victory...

    This week all eyes are Kanye West, J. Cole and Mac Miller. But mainly Kanye West. The three rappers are releasing their respective projects two days from now (Tuesday, June 18th) and we will be watching the sales and the charts to see where each artist lands. While it's been generally assumed that Yeezy will lord over the other releases, there have been some people who say Cole's Born Sinner will...

    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. This week in Underrated...
