UA has compiled four different
tracks this week, each with a unique feel and solid production,
setting them apart from the daily list of songs. Term & Lil Fame
vibe out over Alchemist production, Curt@!n$ returns to the music scene with
help from ScHoolboy Q, Gangsta Gibbs chops up the hard, and Jon
Connor does what he does best. Check them all out below.

week, another great showing from R&B artists on the sales charts. Drake’s boy and fellow Toronto artist The
Weeknd managed to nab the top spot here this week, and he did it all with only
dropping three original tracks. Look for
Nicki Minaj to follow suit when her Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - The Re Up drops,
although some retailers have not chomped at the bid to carry the...
I don't got much to say, but since this is underrated type ish, you guys should all peep DJ Dahi's new instrumental mixtape, Toys 2.0. Dope for rappers, and the average listener alike, cop it here. And on an equally random note, I would really like some new Lloyd Banks in my life so I really hope he finishes those two mixtapes he's working on, like, yesterday.Sir Michael
Rocks- Make This...
to one of the game’s biggest stars and several acclaimed risers, Toronto is
finally emerging as the hip hop force it’s spent over two decades trying to
become. Until recently, the city’s place on the world stage was tenuous. As North
America’s fourth largest market, Toronto has produced talented and original
acts since the 1980’s, but with the exception of a few cross-over...

This week we see Wiz Khalifa’s O.N.I.F.C. debut at #2, just as his last album, Rolling Papers did. However, the numbers don’t exactly add up-- O.N.I.F.C. sold less than Rolling Papers. While Rolling Papers may have been considered a commercial success, according to die-hard TGOD fans, it was far cry from what they knew and loved about Wiz. O.N.I.F.C. found Wiz attempting to return to his...
I’ve been pretty sick recently, but I guess it’s that time of year where colds
are going around. So I definitely had the Monday blues yesterday, but then
Tuesday rolled around, and Tuesday means it’s practically Wednesday which is
practically the middle of the week, which is almost Thursday which is pretty
much the end of the week, so if you're keeping up with, this...

With the holidays in full swing, shopping and spending is at
an annual high, and it’s semi-ironic that a Jesus titled album heads up our
charts this week. The numbers are not
massive, and we will have to keep an eye on sales in the coming weeks, closer
to actual Christmas, and right after when people are using the gift cards that
gift givers are so fond of giving. We
saw two big hip...
The night started off as any other night would with a full out dance party on the second floor of Webster Hall. There, fans got their fill at one of their three bars and danced to the tunes of Nicki Minaj and her Young Money cohorts. Eager to see their favorite MC, fans were dressed up as Nicki Minaj from their eyelashes to their shoes. It was definitely going to be a crazy night.At 12:30 AM, the...
Whatup homeboys and homegirls, Underrated Audio has been on a bit of a hiatus, although you probably didn't notice. Mainly it was because it was the holidays and I was chilling in the Holy Land (Israel). I listened to some Hebrew rap while over there, but it just wasn't the same 'cause I couldn't understand what the fuck anyone was saying, which is obviously like 90% of enjoying a rap song....
we saw a comeback from Juelz Santana, which seems to be going over pretty well,
my personal favorite is definitely the Banks feature (so far). Future also
dropped his F.B.G. crew tape today, which as per usual, has people divided with
equal amounts hate & love. I guess an auto-tuned rapper isolates people
like that. You either hate it or love it.
Anyways, for those who are not...
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...

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. Once more, it seems like promotion is on the rapper and producer's side, as an appearance on Saturday Night Live...
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...

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...
King Los has released mixtape after mixtape, documenting his journey to 'Becoming King,' as he calls it, and increasing his fan-base with the release of each project. Although the rapper thinks that the journey to 'Becoming King' will be a lifelong one, he is persistent and relentless in his pursuit of it.The Bad Boy rapper is prepping his Becoming King mixtape, which will be his first since...

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...
