    HNHH continues to tackle the issue of sales in the hip-hop world. This week we had two new-comers top the charts, as well as an old head make an appearance. While Macklemore & Ryan Lewis perform the best this week, it's becoming more and more obvious that major labels may slowly be heading the way of the tall T, as independent labels manage to do it just as big. Not for nothing...

    Last week with the success of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, we asked if independent artists' marketing strategy would be the new wave and replace the major labels on the charts.  Their album The Heist saw a steep decline in sales, and might have topped out early.  In what is one of the slowest week in Hip Hop/R&B sales of recent months, we get a semi-surprising name at the #1 spot.  This could be a...

    This week we saw pop star Rihanna, who also has one foot in the urban-sphere, rise to the top of the charts with her album Unapologetic. The LP was extremely pushed in all media markets, and her #RihannaPlane launched it into the internet stratosphere. Now we see how good advertising and promo can really effect sales--yes, Rihanna was a superstar in her own right prior to the album drop, but she...

    Last week was pretty reasonable on the music-front, this week is about to get mad busy though, there's a ton of albums and mixtapes dropping. I haven't downloaded a complete new mixtape for a minute though, except for Clams Casino's Instrumental Tape 2 (any song of which I could have posted here...but instead I'll just tell you to go check it out entirely). All this to say, I'm...

    This week's UA brings you two up-tempo beats and two dark beats to enjoy in the summer heat. That kinda rhymed but it wasn't my intention. Also to clarify about UA, it's not necessarily for unknown artists, it's just artists that I'm feeling who's music HNHH posted but didn't get as much play time by HNHH viewers as I would have hoped. Aight. Sir Michael Rocks- Now You Do I wasn't...

    Charts Don’t Lie… how easily you’re hated. Understandably so considering math can be agitating. That said this ongoing chart is an aggregate of the best record keeping the industry has to offer. From Nielsen Soundscan to Billboard and beyond, these calculations are here to provide important information. And this week is no different. For starters, as projected, 2 Chainz took the...

    As the last week of August comes to an end, here are some final summer jams to add to your playlist. A banger or two and some chill vibes. Nitty Scott, MC- Flower Child Feat. Kendrick Lamar Many clicked on this song just for the K.Dot feature, but Nitty Scott also brings it. It's a chilled out track, and the beat even reminds me of flowers. Rapsody- Round Table Discussion Feat. Mac...

    A lot of tracks get posted on HNHH and some of them fly under your radar, maybe because you've never heard of the artist before, you just didn't feel like clicking, or it wasn't labeled “very hot.” Whatever the reason, we're gunna start exposing some of the audio from the past week that you may have slept on every Monday... Bodega BAMZ- 100 Keep It (Prod. V'Don) Feat. Smoke DZA & Willie The...

    You probably know the dilly if you are a frequent HNHH viewer, but if not, this is some audio that (I feel) may have been overlooked from last week. Listen below.         Travis Scott- Animal Feat. T.I. I'm not sure how Travis Scott was able to get a Tip feature, but its surprisingly dope. It's not a conventional beat for T.I., but Travis Scott is usually on some other...

    More than any other substance, marijuana has played a most crucial role in the uprising of rap music. And though he doesn't deserve all of the credit, who knows how the genre would have formulated had it not been for the Ambassador of Pot himself, Snoop Dogg.With the recent wave of weed obsessed rappers, new marquees of hip hop have arisen, from producer Clams Casino's cloud rap beats for ASAP...

    Last week we saw r'n'b/pop take over the Billboard 200, and this week we finally see the return of rap to some of the top spots within the Billboard 200. Impressively, G-Eazy's third studio album comes in highest this week nabbing the #3 spot. Obviously his grind is starting to pay off, as the independent artist sold 46,000 units opening week, basically matching the numbers Fif's Animal Ambition...

    As much as we think times change, they really don't. We like the music we like, regardless of what our parents think. Then something even newer comes out, and we say it isn't as good as the old days. It's the circle of life, and the music industry should've seen it coming. Why wasn't the industry, for the most part, ready for the internet, and all the challenges that came with it? If we know that...

    There are only two new entries within the top 10 of the Billboard 200 this week, and they belong to two rappers: ScHoolboy Q and Kid Cudi. As we said last week, Q was projected to move 150-160k, but fell slightly under that by moving 138,950 copies opening week. This was nevertheless an extremely strong showing from the TDE rapper, which gave him his first #1 debut as well as that of the label's....
