    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. On this week's edition we scrounge up music from rappers on the rise, some of whom just inked a independent label deal...

    A lot of tracks get posted on HNHH and some of them fly under your radar, maybe because you've never heard of the artist before, you just didn't feel like clicking, or it wasn't labeled “very hot.” Whatever the reason, we're gunna start exposing some of the audio from the past week that you may have slept on every Monday... Bodega BAMZ- 100 Keep It (Prod. V'Don) Feat. Smoke DZA & Willie The...

    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...

    This week we see one new entry below, belonging to October's Very Own's PARTYNEXTDOOR. The r'n'b singer is relatively new, having released his first official mixtape PARTYNEXTDOOR just last summer. Nonetheless, he's already developed quite the loyal following, undoubtedly due (in part) to his affiliation with Drizzy. The Toronto singer has been able to move a solid 15k, almost 16k, since his...

    Last week we saw PARTYNEXTDOOR make a relatively strong debut on the Billboard 200, however he has not maintained his ranking this week, having fallen below Billboard's top 100. We've got one new entry this week, coming from the underground crew signed to Tech N9ne's Strange Music, Ces Cru. They were able to sell just over 6k, making a debut at #40. Apart from that we see Childish Gambino make a...

Beats Music, a subscription-based streaming service announced by Dre and Jimmy Iovine in January (and bought by Apple in May), will be...

    Battle rap is quickly growing as a culture. What was almost completely relegated to street corners and Youtube a few years ago has garnered national recognition, more tv programming, Pay-Per-View events, and other attention of the mainstream media. Hip Hop icons like Eminem and Snoop Dogg have put on events for the battle scene and at this rate things can only continue to expand. That being the...

    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 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...
