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 recently heard Tech N9ne go crazy (and spit super fast) on Hopsin's "Rip Your Heart Out," which is just one of several collaborations the two rappers have done together.The same day "Rip Your Heart Out" dropped, we hit up DJ Skee's Skee Live show and got to talk to Tech about his music and who else he'd like to work with in the rap game.
Tech Ninna revealed a desire to work with the...

50 Cent entered the Billboard 200 this week, with Animal Ambition moving more than the projected amount, although it's still not the numbers Fif used to do. It's independent numbers though, with a showing of 47,000 units. It will likely be quiet on the charts until we approach June 24th, when we've got multiple albums, including ones from Ab-Soul and Riff Raff, dropping. Until then, we'll have to...
Slow and steady wins the race, or so they say. In an era of immediate consumption and instant gratification, we want something the second it becomes available, if not before. We wait in line overnight so we can be the first in our group of friends to have the newest iPhone, Call of Duty, or retro Jawwdins. Being a first adopter is a pride thing, and some care about it more than others, but nobody...
Underrated Audio aims to provide you with some dope looks from the last seven days, that flew under most peoples' radars. While they may have received front-page placement on HNHH, they didn't get as many views as they deserve, so we shine a little more light on them right here.
This past week proved to be pretty fruitful for good music, as we approach summer we are getting plenty of summertime...

This week on Charts Don’t Lie, R&B artists who infuse
their music with hip hop collaborations and sounds continue to rule, however
things are about to change as A$AP Rocky’s studio debut is projected to top the
Billboard 200 next week. In the interim,
we see the holdovers from 2012 selling solid with some of the best albums of
the year still appearing on the charts.
The first week of April has arrived, and along with it came a few jams from some of the usual suspects: King Chip, Action Bronson, Young Roddy and Travi$ Scott. These four are no strangers to Underrated Audio, but soon one or two of them may get too big for the UA circuit and move on up to Top Tracks of the Week. Namely, Travi$ Scott, who almost reached 24,000 views on his Wale-featured...
This week we saw Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience break another record, after first topping Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV in first week sales, it became the first record in 2013 to crack one million sales, going platinum just two weeks after it dropped. On the other end of the spectrum, we saw Weezy F's album, I Am Not A Human Being II, sell a strong 217k, but it did not really live up to...
Wowwww I can't believe it's already July. A lot of good ish has been steadily dropping since summer started. G.O.O.D. Music has been releasing new singles, MMG, and all the other relevant crews I don't feel like listing. I wish it was summer year round.
Big Boi- Gossip Feat. UGK & Big
This is one of the singles off Big
Boi's upcoming album Vicious Lies & Dangerous...
You know what it is. My favourite cuts from the past week, there's probably one or two you overlooked so now's your time to look them over. Some solid summer jams.
Jeremih- Val Venis (Remix)
I've really been digging Jeremih's shit
lately (see: this). He's doing a little bit of rap-singing on this
and I like it. The beat is dope, laced with some hi-pitched chiming
and bass every...
There was a lapse in UA last
week due to me being sick and not being in the mood to do it. But
this week we're back at it, giving you the tracks that HNHH posted
last week that I felt deserved more views! And we're pretty much mid-October and the month's been great to hip-hop so far. Tomorrow we're going to be getting a new Gucci Mane mixtape which I've been looking forward too (oddly...
We're in mid-November now and it's
almost Thanksgiving for all our U.S. residents, so we know everyone's
gunna be eating some good and get pretty lazy (aka full) afterwards.
Here's some tracks to pass the time during your Thanksgiving dinner.
Play them for your parents, grandparents, cousins, siblings,
neighbours etc..whoever is at your dinner table! 'Cause who doesn't
love an acoustic...
Perhaps Snoop made a poor career choice by switching from
hip hop to reggae. If he truly wanted to
move units he should consider an R&B persona. Rhythm and Blues singers have been performing
mightily on these charts as of late, but this week they took over fully. Only one “Hip Hop” album managed to move any significant
numbers, and that was Kendrick Lamar’s seminal album Good Kid,...
is pretty big on the music-front, we got Big Boi and Game’s album both out
today, and both are equally dope and deserve multiple listens. With those LPs
taking up much of my spare listening time, the rest is relegated to Sir Michael
Rocks’ new shit (a sample of which is seen below) and various other singles
(also seen below). Enjoy.

There were a lot of huge records that
dropped this past week (two, at least, which Meek Mill & Drake
were a part of), anyways, while I'm sure most people checked out
those, here's some that might have been neglected.
Brother Ali- Not A Day Goes By (Prod.
Brother Ali is not one of those artists
who lets go a song a day, so when he does put out music I pay
attention, and he...

This week we see a new entry in Chart's Dont Lie, with Tyler, the Creator's WOLF having dropped on April 2nd. The rapper is definitely expanding his fanbase, with this album impressively debuting at #3 on the Billboard 200. Tyler has been known for extreme and controversial lyrics, which may have made him less accessible to the general public in the past. Now it seems like the public is...
