    More than any other artists or group (excepting Scarface) Outkast is responsible for the rise of southern rap. They were among the first acts to gain recognition from the region and remain one of the most commercially and critically successful rap groups to date. The group has constantly pushed sonic and topical boundaries within the rap genre. They have, together, produced some of the most...

    This week we don't have too many songs for your to look through. We saw a few big tracks drop this week from the likes of Future, Sean Kingston, Young Jeezy, Ab-Soul and Drake, but take the time to check out these three jams from Stalley (who dropped a new mixtape which you shouldn't overlook), Dom Kennedy (who has been missing from our lives lately) and Kat Dahlia (who is a new-comer, but...

    This week was obviously a memorable one for hip-hop, with Big Sean's "Control" dropping and a Kendrick Lamar frenzy ensuing. While the verse has received way more attention than we could have imagined, plenty of rappers are retaliating and introducing new excitement into the rap game which isn't a bad thing. We will have to wait and see how long this lasts, but in the meantime it's just making...

    We see two new entries when it comes to hip-hop on Charts Don't Lie this week. They belong to Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt and A$AP Mob's A$AP Ferg. While both rappers moved respectable amounts, it gives us a moment to think about the whole ideas of crews in hip-hop, and how no matter what, there is always one rap leader who has to make an impression on the audience first. For OF, this is Tyler,...

    HNHH spoke to random people on the street to test their knowledge of Hip Hop trivia for both popular and lesser known facts.  The results were interesting. In this first episode, see if you can tell which artist only sold 1,000 copies of their debut album, was not a backup dancer prior to becoming a rapper and who wasn't an artist mentioned in Kendrick Lamar's "Control" verse.   Don't forget...

    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....

    Recently, we featured Funk Volume's Dizzy Wright, and his stand-out track "Maintain" on Track Breakdown, and today we return to the Funk Volume crew, but this time to get some more knowledge about Jarren Benton's single "Razor Blades & Steak Knives," produced by Kato. The single is the first off Jarren's forthcoming debut on Funk Volume, My Grandma's Basement. The single stays true to Jarren's...

    You know how it goes. We've grabbed some of the tracks we thought were overlooked this past week, and placed them all in one place (here) for your enjoyment. This week it really is about rappers that are overlooked (apart from Party Next Door, who is not a rapper at all). From Jon Connor, to Stalley, to Tree, it's generally agreed that these rappers don't get the credit they deserve, and they're...

    For this week's Track Breakdown, we called upon rising singer August Alsina. August already has a deal locked in with Def Jam, through none other than r'n'b singer and hit-maker, The-Dream. With mentoring from Terius Nash, there is no doubt that August will go far with his music. The 20-year-old singer recently released his second mixtape, The Product 2, and the response has been very positive....

    For now, rap releases have slowed down, but new ones are on the way. The month of June promises to be one full of album drops-- which all fall under a few different dates. The biggest date by far, is, of course, June 18th. The date which 'Ye tweeted a month ago is (unsurprisingly?) turning out to be a huge one in terms of hip-hop. We'll be getting a matured Mac Miller's Watching Movies With The...

    This week we keep it short and sweet for y'all. We've got four cuts from upstarts in music, who all deliver vastly different sounds, from the indie-kinda-rap OnCue spits, to the r'n'b ish JMSN delivers, to the '90s sounding rap from Dillon Cooper. We also threw in a cut from Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks. Plus we have G-Unit rapper Precious Paris featured, so we can all reminisce on G-Unit days for a...

    As we do every week, we aim to bring you overlooked records that dropped in the past seven days with Underrated Audio. These were cuts that didn't get a ton of views, so we're hoping to give them a boost with a second look. This week's edition features music from Tsu Surf, Roc Marciano, GLC and more.

    With the holiday season winding down, we're still seeing the affect it had on the charts and the sales. It seems like almost everyone on today's Charts round-up had an increase in sales and a rise up the Billboard 200 in the past seven days except for B.o.B. Unfortunately, Underground Luxury does not seem to be taking off in any way, and although it was released in time to give as a Christmas...

    Underrated Audio aims to bring to your attention several tracks from the last seven days that were overlooked. Each week we choose a few cuts that we think deserve a little more love from our viewers, and this week we've rounded up Chuck Inglish's latest single, a choice cut from Ricky Hil, rising rapper G-Eazy and more. Scroll through the images above and let us know what record you think was...
