HNHH's "Underrated Audio" puts you on not-too-mainstream music you might have missed from the past week.
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.
Pattern recognition: utilizing data to classify the present and better predict the future. For those of you following the charts week in and week out pattern recognition is a discipline worth employing. On an elementary level it reveals the fact that big names sell, female fans buy, and strong singles provide additional reach. However, an increasingly analytical
Ron Artest was involved in the most nefarious brawl in league history at the Malice At The Palace, but it was after he was ejected from a game in a playoff series in 2011 that he wanted to start anew, and changed his name legally to Metta World Peace.Recently, Metta was amnestied by the Lakers and then picked up by his hometown New York Knicks. Wanting to have yet another fresh start, World Peac
On Friday we posted a photo of Dwyane Wade's ex wife in the streets of Chicago holding a sign that read "NBA Miami Heat Star Mother Of His Children Out On The Streets," and now we get more info about why Siovaughn Funches-Wade was "protesting." It all stems from the court case between the two, as we reported earlier had sued the Heat star, and then that lawsuit was removed.
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...
Underrated Audio brings you four tracks from the past seven days that didn't get enough looks. This week Kidd Kidd offers a tribute to both Trayvon Martin and Ahlittia North, Sango drops some music to vibe too with help from JMSN, R.A. The Rugged Man drops a serious remix and Stalley stunts on "A-Wax." Check out the songs in the gallery above.
Legendary director of “He Got Game,” “Do The Right Thing,” “Clockers,” “Inside Man,” and much more, Spike Lee is raising funds for his next film through Kickstarter and offering some nice incentives to those that can contribute to his project. There are several incentives at various levels, but the basketball-related ones include: for $500 you will get a call from Spike and ta
Scottie Pippen was involved in a short altercation outside Nobu, a restaurant in Malibu, that ended up with Pip punching a man, and said man crumbling to the ground and being knocked out. Now that man is suing the Hall Of Fame forward for $4 million.Police are still investigating the incident, but they had interviewed Pippen, and witnesses had said the man was intoxicated and was berating the
It seems like the lack-of-music we we're talking about on last week's Underrated Audio has finally come to an end. This past week we've seen huge songs drop from Drake, Fabolous, A$AP Rocky, Lupe Fiasco and Ace Hood, just to name a few. You'll see some of those songs topped our Top 100 and were featured on Top Tracks of the Week, but it wasn't only the big names dropping music this past week.
Artists who performed at the Grammys or (better yet?) won an award, gained more than just the honor—they gained new fans, perhaps reached a wider audience than usual and thus increased sales of their music. Over the past week, overall album sales
It's almost December and that's some crazy shit. I've kind of been in a music slum lately, nothing that has dropped recently has realllllyy grabbed me (I'm talking mixtape-wise, Joe Budden definitely got a few listens but it's not on repeat). So I guess singles will have to be on rotation for now.
I was M.I.A. last week but now I'm back! Last week was massive, a lot of big tunes were dropping every day and some smaller ones dropped that were equally ill (if not iller). It saddens me to say that summer is almost over, but if you're heading back to school, at least you'll have some sick music
The Air Jordan 11 Low "Infrared 23" as we're calling it, is scheduled to drop on June 14th. Grainy images of the black and white build features a white cement pattern about the ankle collar, infrared accents on the branding, and an icy translucent outsole. Little is known about the new Air Jordan 11 Low, but it is certain to make waves when it releases at the end of Spring.
Four tracks this week for you to enjoy, if you haven't already. Phil Ade- Hatin (Faded Remix) Phil Ade takes on Tyga's “Faded” and turns it into “Hatin” for all his haters (and fans too). I hope we get a new Phil Ade project soon. Sir Michael Rocks- Chill Feat. Like (of Pac Div)
Check out some music you may have overlooked this past week. Rockie Fresh- Want My Blood Feat. The Kickdrums & DZ Deathrays This doesn't sound like your typical rap song, Rockie flows over a synth-based beat. Redman- Just Don't Give A Fuck (Remix)
Check out some underground/slept-on tunes you may have missed last week. Ro Ransom- Temperature
This week we got some new Ab-Soul and JMSN, actually our first real taste of the duo working together, and it was quite well-received.
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.
Well guys, 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
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
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 Tuesday. 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 has
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$AP Nast, another New Yorker who's a female by the name of Leaf, Nikko Lafre and Shlohmo. Peep those four cuts in the gallery above, and let us know what underrated piece of audio you've been digging this week.
Clearly there’s some bad blood between Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife, Siovaughn Funches-Wade, as she had filed a lawsuit for a million dollars but has no “voluntarily dismissed” the case. The lawsuit had claimed that the two signed a contract back in 2006 that certain endorsement money would be placed in a joint account where Funches-Wade could access it, but that Dwyane had voluntarily bee
UA has compiled four different tracks this week, each with a unique feel and solid production, setting them apart from the daily list of songs. Term & Lil Fame vibe out over Alchemist production, Curt@!n$ 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. Termanology & Lil Fame-
