Blu- Rap Dope I don't listen to Blu very often, and I keep telling myself I'm going to download more of his...

    The debate as to whether charts do, or don't lie, rages on. On one hand, there are the numbers themselves. As to what they mean is a subjective matter. That said there is the argument that the numbers are incorrect. Weighted sales are one such issue. Particularly problematic in the late 90’s, weighted sales were a questionable algorithm included in Soundscan’s overall equation. It...

    With the holidays in full swing, shopping and spending is at an annual high, and it’s semi-ironic that a Jesus titled album heads up our charts this week.  The numbers are not massive, and we will have to keep an eye on sales in the coming weeks, closer to actual Christmas, and right after when people are using the gift cards that gift givers are so fond of giving.  We saw two big hip...

    The night started off as any other night would with a full out dance party on the second floor of Webster Hall. There, fans got their fill at one of their three bars and danced to the tunes of Nicki Minaj and her Young Money cohorts. Eager to see their favorite MC, fans were dressed up as Nicki Minaj from their eyelashes to their shoes. It was definitely going to be a crazy night.At 12:30 AM, the...

    Whatup homeboys and homegirls, Underrated Audio has been on a bit of a hiatus, although you probably didn't notice. Mainly it was because it was the holidays and I was chilling in the Holy Land (Israel). I listened to some Hebrew rap while over there, but it just wasn't the same 'cause I couldn't understand what the fuck anyone was saying, which is obviously like 90% of enjoying a rap song....

    This week we saw a comeback from Juelz Santana, which seems to be going over pretty well, my personal favorite is definitely the Banks feature (so far). Future also dropped his F.B.G. crew tape today, which as per usual, has people divided with equal amounts hate & love. I guess an auto-tuned rapper isolates people like that. You either hate it or love it.  Anyways, for those who are not...

    This week we got some new Ab-Soul and JMSN, actually our first real taste of the duo working together, and it was quite well-received. The rapper and singer/producer have a collaborative album dropping in February, which is the only album I really am looking forward to in the pipeline of winter releases...It doesn't really seem like there are many dope LPs to get us through the winter so let's...

    Almost three years after finding a cancerous tumor on his parotid gland Adam Yauch (MCA) acquiesced to the illness on May 4th, 2012. Since then fans, friends, and fellow artists have mourned Adam’s life and work through their words and actions.In truth there is much to mourn, and much to remember. As a founding member of the Beastie Boys, Yauch was largely responsible for the most successful...

    Word up HNHH viewers, the Grammys were on last night, and even if you missed it, you can catch all the relevant performances here. So let's just take a minute to discuss the lack of love showed to my favourite genre, obviously, hip-hop. What the fuck. How did Bon Iver win Artist of the Year? I like Bon Iver, I mean, I used to be into his shit a while back...I really didn't think he was a new...

    Another week, another great showing from R&B artists on the sales charts.  Drake’s boy and fellow Toronto artist The Weeknd managed to nab the top spot here this week, and he did it all with only dropping three original tracks.  Look for Nicki Minaj to follow suit when her Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - The Re Up drops, although some retailers have not chomped at the bid to carry the...

    Home to one of the game’s biggest stars and several acclaimed risers, Toronto is finally emerging as the hip hop force it’s spent over two decades trying to become. Until recently, the city’s place on the world stage was tenuous. As North America’s fourth largest market, Toronto has produced talented and original acts since the 1980’s, but with the exception of a few cross-over...

    I don't got much to say, but since this is underrated type ish, you guys should all peep DJ Dahi's new instrumental mixtape, Toys 2.0. Dope for rappers, and the average listener alike, cop it here. And on an equally random note, I would really like some new Lloyd Banks in my life so I really hope he finishes those two mixtapes he's working on, like, yesterday.Sir Michael Rocks- Make This...

    This week we see Wiz Khalifa’s O.N.I.F.C. debut at #2, just as his last album, Rolling Papers did. However, the numbers don’t exactly add up-- O.N.I.F.C. sold less than Rolling Papers. While Rolling Papers may have been considered a commercial success, according to die-hard TGOD fans, it was far cry from what they knew and loved about Wiz. O.N.I.F.C. found Wiz attempting to return to his...

    Well guys, I’ve been pretty sick recently, but I guess it’s that time of year where colds are going around. So I definitely had the Monday blues yesterday, but then Tuesday rolled around, and Tuesday means it’s practically Wednesday which is practically the middle of the week, which is almost Thursday which is pretty much the end of the week, so if you're keeping up with, this...

    This past week we saw an influx of themed content, surrounding Valentine's Day and the NBA All-Star Weekend. Rappers just love dropping material simultaneously, thus the site was busy with mixtapes and songs centered around either subject, resulting in some music getting pushed aside. Here are five tracks that may have been neglected in the V-Day and All-Star frenzy that occupied last week.
