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...
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.

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...
Charles Barkley may not be on Twitter, but if you ask him for his opinion he will give it to you unfiltered. As part of a celebrity golf tournament, Charles was on CNBC’s “Closing Bell,” where he gave his opinion on various things including people people leeching off athletes, why he stays off Twitter, and even touched on the George Zimmerman not guilty trial verdict. Barkley says...

Our new entry on Charts Don't Lie this week belongs to Ace Hooooood. The rapper constantly on his grind delivered Trials & Tribulations after months of promotion, a huge hit single, "Bugatti," a listening event, among other things. And while it worked in his favor somewhat (it's his best sales to date), it's still not very much of an improvement from his last album, Blood, Sweat & Tears. Trials &...
This past week we saw a pretty solid amount of music get released, however, all things turned to Drake when his single "All Me" dropped (so it really is All Drake). But for Underrated Audio we will take the focus off Drizzy for a minute and present you with five tracks from the past week that may have been swallowed up by those huge joints from Drake, 2 Chainz, etc. We contemplate what's up with...
We got quite a few new mixtapes this week, including one really big one from Dizzy Wright, The Golden Age. The tape has been getting Dizzy a lot of love, which is definitely a good thing for the Las Vegas emcee on his grind, and the project is probably his most high-profile yet. As another week wraps up, peep five records that dropped over the past seven days which weren't racking up views like...
Above you will find 23 photos of 23 NBA players (both current and retired) when they were still kids. Click through the photos, and see which ones you can recognize. Some of them are easy to spot, while others may stump, and surprise you. The ones you see in the cover image above are easy ones, so try all 23 and let us know which players you couldn't guess. Highlight below to see the...

Long viewed as an art form mired in chauvinism and bravado, hip hop is in the midst of ‘gender-fication’ with an upheaval in how we view, listen, and consume the music. Talking about your glock while holding your cock, is no longer limited to male rappers.
Nicki Minaj has taken rap, pop and R&B by storm, and melded it into her own cornucopia of pop-synth other-worldly...
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...
