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...
Today is Tuesday but it feels like a
Monday...and since UA is usually posted on a Monday, we'll pretend
today is Monday and tomorrow is still Wednesday 'cause fuck a
Clams Casino- Always Have A Choice
One of my favorite producers at the
moment, Clams Casino, takes to Twitter every now and then to let go
random instrumentals he's done and it's always appreciated. Clams...
The first week of September is upon us,
but the new music isn't slowing down just 'cause summer is.
We had a ton of mixtapes drop this past week, and still more to come.
Nonetheless, not all new music is good music!! But here is some shit
that is actually new AND good. Crazy shiet.

I don't listen
to Blu very often, and I keep telling myself I'm going to download
more of his...
The debate as to whether charts do, or don't lie, rages on. On one hand, there are the numbers themselves. As to what they
mean is a subjective matter. That said there is the argument that the numbers
are incorrect. Weighted sales are one such issue. Particularly problematic in
the late 90’s, weighted sales were a questionable algorithm included in
Soundscan’s overall equation. It...
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.

Word up HNHH viewers, the Grammys were on last night, and even if you missed it, you can catch all the relevant performances here.
So let's just take a minute to discuss the lack of love showed to my favourite genre, obviously, hip-hop. What the fuck. How did Bon Iver win Artist of the Year? I like Bon Iver, I mean, I used to be into his shit a while back...I really didn't think he was a new...

By now you've probably seen, or at
least heard about, the Tupac hologram which debuted at Dr. Dre &
Snoop Dogg's performance at Coachella. It took the internet by storm,
and was praised by many; but there is still a sense of hesitancy in
accepting that holograms are the 'way of the future.' I don't think
I'm alone in saying that I hope that the Tupac hologram doesn't
become a regular...
Almost three years after finding a cancerous tumor on his parotid gland Adam Yauch (MCA) acquiesced to the illness on May 4th, 2012. Since then fans, friends, and fellow artists have mourned Adam’s life and work through their words and actions.In truth there is much to mourn, and much to remember. As a founding member of the Beastie Boys, Yauch was largely responsible for the most successful...

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...
