    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...

    The new entries keep coming in on Charts Don't Lie. Recent weeks have seen quite a few releases that are within the hip-hop realm, as is often the case, because rappers like to release projects on the same day. This week, however, the new-comers to the charts don't come in as strong as you might think. Pop-friendly rapper Will.i.am moved under 30k for opening week with his solo album #willpower....

    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 approach reveals so much...

    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...

    Big K.R.I.T. lands himself a strong debut for his sophomore effort Cadillactica, sliding into the Billboard 200's top 5 at #5. This happens to be the same debut as his first LP, Live From The Underground, although Krizzle upped his numbers this time, ever so slightly, moving 44,000 units. Live From The Underground did 41,000. That's definitely a respectable starting place for a rapper who refused...

    This week on Charts Don't Lie we see the Christmas spirit in effect, as Mariah Carey's 1994 album Merry Christmas soars back up the charts. We're also seeing a relatively quick decent for the MMG boss Rick Ross, and a relatively low debut for his counterpart Omarion. Wu-Tang Clan arrive on the charts with A Better Tomorrow receiving around 25k streams and sales, although they get one-upped by Ms....

    Nicki Minaj dominates the charts this week, although, there is one artist she isn't able to dominate: you guessed it, Taylor Swift. No matter, Nicki outdid sales projections with her first week on shelves, after moving a sold 244,00 units; basically 100k more than we expected. Magic? Or did Cash Money snatch up 100k copies? We'll let you be the judge. We're also seeing D'Angelo make a return to...

    This week on the charts proves to be rather uneventful, as there are no new entries to speak of, although G-Eazy was able to re-enter with These Things Happen. Cadillactica, on the other hand, experienced a steep drop from its top 5 debut. Nonetheless, we're anticipating quite a few new albums that will enter the Billboard 200 in the coming weeks, Eminem's Shady XV will most likely top them all...

    Game Changers is an HNHH feature that profiles artists who've left a strong mark on hip hop. Whether it be through creativity, influence, exposure or simply good timing, they've brought something to rap music that the game just wouldn't be the same without. This week, we've chosen to profile an inarguable game changer: RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan. "RZA is different from the others. His spirit...

    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 increased 17%, which is due in part to the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, but also, Valentine’s Day-- lest we forget the extremely commercialized...
