    Joe Budden released his fifth studio album recently, No Love Lost. No Love Lost found Joe openly speaking about his struggles and the lessons he's learned from them, all with brutal honesty. The rapper is a man of few words, however maybe it's because he doesn't need to say much-- his music says it all. We decided to talk to the Mood Muzik rapper about "Last Day" featuring Lloyd Banks and Juicy...

    John Wall and Kenneth Faried shed their uniforms for ESPN Magazine’s “The Body” issue as both players posed for ‘tastefully’ nude photos.  The issue is supposed to help bring awareness to the body, and make people feel more comfortable with who they are. One person who was uncomfortable with Wall’s poses was teammate Martell Webster.   When asked by a member of the Washington Post...

    This week's Underrated Audio gathers four tracks of varying kinds for your listening pleasure. Both Kevin Gates and Ace Hood dropped albums this past week, and while Ace Hood's Trials & Tribulations was undoubtedly made for the mainstream, Kevin Gates' project took a somewhat experimental approach to rap. Gates incorporates rap-singing on Stranger Than Fiction, and while the content may be...
  • "Control": Just What Hip Hop Needed? Weigh In On Kendrick Lamar's Verse

    If we've learned anything from Kendrick Lamar's verse on Big Sean's song "Control", it's that there seems to be something lacking in today's Hip Hop genre.  This is evidenced by the reaction of fans, the industry, social media and artists themselves. At HNHH, we think this discussion is a good thing for rap; but it leaves us with a lot of questions. And if the recent outpouring of reactions...

    It doesn't even really need to be said at this point, but this past week was dominated by Kendrick Lamar and the many "Control" responses that followed. It seems every rapper feels some type of way about some line in K. Dot's verse, even if they weren't directly called out. You've probably had your fill of anything titled "Control" so let's take a look at some of the records that dropped this...

    Phil Ade is the next rapper up out of the DMV area. The rapper has consistently brought rhymes and wordplay with a mix of sometimes conscious rap and sometimes ignorant rap. It's a good combination which has led to a devout following of Phil Ade fans, who expect more and more from the rapper after each mixtape. Rightly so. As Phil continues to grow and cultivate his skills, the independent...

    This week has been Drizzy Drake everything, with the official release of Nothing Was The Same and a bunch of promo for it. Drake has not started taking over the charts yet, but that will change next week when we get the results of his first week sales. The projections were revealed this past week, and although many OVO fans were hopeful Drake would reach 1 million in the first week, it seems he...

    This past week the Drake frenzy surrounding Nothing Was The Same came to a peak when the actual first week sales were released. The rapper's album had the best opening week of this year second to Justin Timberlake's come back effort-- he even topped Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail first week sales. Nonetheless, his reach hasn't quite made the 1 million mark yet, although, if he continues on this...

    This week was a good one for hip-hop. The BET Hip-Hop Awards delivered cyphers from plenty of rappers, and Curren$y hopped on a track with his former YMCMB bosses, Lil Wayne and Birdman, which was pretty cool. DJ Khaled also leaked a bajillion tracks off Suffering From Success (well, at least four).  Today we bring you five dope tracks that didn't get all the love they should have in terms of...

    Atlanta, Georgia. The city bursting with waffle houses and strip clubs also happens to be one of today’s hip-hop capitals. Trap music has skyrocketed over the past couple years, ATL being its home. Twenty years ago, however, there was a much different picture in the A. The Dirty South was simply trying to garner recognition while the East and West Coasts shared a stranglehold on the rap scene....

    Everyone seems to be in Eminem overdrive with the release of Marshall Mathers LP 2 (HotNewHipHop is no different, as you probably noticed), but Underrated Audio gives us a chance to shy away from whatever is taking over our Top 100 chart or taking over our News feed. Thus, we bring you four records from three different spitters and one completely new artist we've never heard before, all of whom...

We caught Waka on a day off in L.A. and got a quick update on what it's like to tour with Aoki, Flockaveli 2, and his EDM rap album.  Waka doesn't reveal many details about Flockaveli 2, which has been delayed until 2014, but he does say, "I wanted to go back...

    Volume one established the idea that an enduring fan of Hip Hop is committed come hell or more auto-tune. It’s easy to complain about the bad, or to become complacent with the good enough. However, if this metaphorical marriage is going to work out, forgiveness must be given for the mistakes artists make, and fans need to be rewarded with quality product in turn. ROMANCE & HIP HOP?

    The first time we heard Nicki Minaj was on “Monster,” a track that includes heavyweights Jay-Z, Rick Ross and Kanye, it was her ferocious verse that stood out the most. It automatically exhibited her potential to be this generation's dopest female M.C.   Due to the fact that she signed with a label like Young Money, whose primary focus is to generate revenue (ergo, pop), it...
