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...
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!
Watch Broady chop it down with the celebs and artists below, and check out an...

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.
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.
This week nothing major dropped in terms of hip-hop. Nonetheless, overall album sales went up by 42%. To what can we blame this spike in sales? It would be safe to say Black Friday, which is basically the commencement of the holiday season/shopping frenzy. It's interesting to see the effects on the charts, as many of the rap albums we're looking at today were affected positively from this season...

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...
