This past week we saw a pretty solid amount of music get released, however, all things turned to Drake when his single "All Me" dropped (so it really is All Drake). But for Underrated Audio we will take the focus off Drizzy for a minute and present you with five tracks from the past week that may have been swallowed up by those huge joints from Drake, 2 Chainz, etc. We contemplate what's up with...
We got quite a few new mixtapes this week, including one really big one from Dizzy Wright, The Golden Age. The tape has been getting Dizzy a lot of love, which is definitely a good thing for the Las Vegas emcee on his grind, and the project is probably his most high-profile yet. As another week wraps up, peep five records that dropped over the past seven days which weren't racking up views like...
Above you will find 23 photos of 23 NBA players (both current and retired) when they were still kids. Click through the photos, and see which ones you can recognize. Some of them are easy to spot, while others may stump, and surprise you. The ones you see in the cover image above are easy ones, so try all 23 and let us know which players you couldn't guess. Highlight below to see the...
There was a lapse in UA last
week due to me being sick and not being in the mood to do it. But
this week we're back at it, giving you the tracks that HNHH posted
last week that I felt deserved more views! And we're pretty much mid-October and the month's been great to hip-hop so far. Tomorrow we're going to be getting a new Gucci Mane mixtape which I've been looking forward too (oddly...
We're in mid-November now and it's
almost Thanksgiving for all our U.S. residents, so we know everyone's
gunna be eating some good and get pretty lazy (aka full) afterwards.
Here's some tracks to pass the time during your Thanksgiving dinner.
Play them for your parents, grandparents, cousins, siblings,
neighbours etc..whoever is at your dinner table! 'Cause who doesn't
love an acoustic...
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
numbers, and that was Kendrick Lamar’s seminal album Good Kid,...
is pretty big on the music-front, we got Big Boi and Game’s album both out
today, and both are equally dope and deserve multiple listens. With those LPs
taking up much of my spare listening time, the rest is relegated to Sir Michael
Rocks’ new shit (a sample of which is seen below) and various other singles
(also seen below). Enjoy.

As November fast approaches, we're all getting excited to hear Eminem's come-back (we hope) on MMLPII on November 5th. However, October 15th was also an important day for hip-hop, with three of the most dope and underrated emcees all dropping records: Boldy James, Dom Kennedy, and Black Milk. Dom Kennedy is sort of making his way out of that underrated category, with Get Home Safely receiving...
With this exclusive look at Big K.R.I.T.'s "4Eva N A Tour" behind-the-scenes, we catch a glimpse of life on the road with the "King Remembered In Time" artist.
In this episode, K.R.I.T. gets his younger brother wasted as they celebrate his younger sibling's 21st birthday. We get a visit from Talib Kweli, who stops by the dressing room to reminisce on how his life got flipped when his...

Wiz Khalifa is currently working on a new album, Blacc Hollywood. He's already revealed some of the artists he's working with on the album, including The Weeknd, Miley Cyrus and Adele, while he's released just one (possible) album cut, "Look Into My Eyes." Although the updates on the album have been a little slow lately, we got to speak to Wiz about the whole concept of 'Blacc...
Wowwww I can't believe it's already July. A lot of good ish has been steadily dropping since summer started. G.O.O.D. Music has been releasing new singles, MMG, and all the other relevant crews I don't feel like listing. I wish it was summer year round.
Big Boi- Gossip Feat. UGK & Big
This is one of the singles off Big
Boi's upcoming album Vicious Lies & Dangerous...
You know what it is. My favourite cuts from the past week, there's probably one or two you overlooked so now's your time to look them over. Some solid summer jams.
Jeremih- Val Venis (Remix)
I've really been digging Jeremih's shit
lately (see: this). He's doing a little bit of rap-singing on this
and I like it. The beat is dope, laced with some hi-pitched chiming
and bass every...
Although it is the holidays, rappers never stop putting in work. Rappers love to release shit on holidays specifically, and this year was no different. Quite a few artists came through with big records in the spirit of Xmas, but there were also some smaller gems which we're shining light on in Underrated Audio.
Have a look through to see what you may have missed in the past seven days.

There aren't very many changes in this week's Charts Don't Lie compared to last week. The main list of artists has remained the same, as we have yet to receive any new rap or r'n'b debuts on the Billboard 200, although Kid Ink's debut album My Own Lane will begin charting in the near future. Ink's RCA album is projected to move a solid 40-45k, which will land him within the top 3. That's not too...
The Grammys had a positive effect in terms of album sales, as those nominated and those who won both received a boost in the past seven days. Despite Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d city not taking home a Grammy, the rapper still saw a spike in his sales and an almost twenty-spot jump up the charts. Of course, four-time Grammy winners Macklemore & Ryan Lewis also benefited this past week,...

Long viewed as an art form mired in chauvinism and bravado, hip hop is in the midst of ‘gender-fication’ with an upheaval in how we view, listen, and consume the music. Talking about your glock while holding your cock, is no longer limited to male rappers.
Nicki Minaj has taken rap, pop and R&B by storm, and melded it into her own cornucopia of pop-synth other-worldly...
