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...

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...
Clearly there’s some bad blood between Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife, Siovaughn Funches-Wade, as she had filed a lawsuit for a million dollars but has no “voluntarily dismissed” the case. The lawsuit had claimed that the two signed a contract back in 2006 that certain endorsement money would be placed in a joint account where Funches-Wade could access it, but that Dwyane had voluntarily...
The best Summer League player in the world, Andre Drummond, went to a trampoline play area and worked on his Slam Ball skills of dunking while using a trampoline. He posted several vids, including one of him imitating a classic Tracy McGrady two hand reverse – popularized in the 2000 Dunk Contest. In Orlando Summer League, Dre dominated the Miami Heat and threw down some vicious dunks,...
Like most mother’s, Kobe Bryant’s mom was tired of holding onto all of her kid’s old stuff long after he had moved out. Pam Bryant decided she wanted to sell some of Kobe’s things at auction and see if she can get some money for them. Problem is, most of this was valuable memorabilia that Kobe didn’t want sold. The two ended up going to court over the matter and eventually settled...
On Friday we took a look at Kobe Bryant’s mother auctioning a 2000 NBA Championship ring that Kobe had ordered for his mother, which was a replica of the ring he was given by the team. At the time the bidding was up over $40,000, but eventually went for over $100,000. Bryant had taken his mother, Pam, to court when she originally planned on auctioning off memorabilia she had of Kobe’s...
Last week we contemplated the low sales for Ace Hood's Trials & Tribulations album. This week, we see a severe drop for Ace's album, at the same time we get a new entry with similarly low sales, Rich Gang. We all know those Young Money fans go hard for their rappers, however, it appears they didn't come out to purchase Birdman's YMCMB compilation (of sorts), Rich Gang. First off, the album was...
