    We have two new-comers to Charts Don't Lie this week, who come from opposite ends of the spectrum- Robin Thicke and Tech N9ne. Both artists had impressive debuts, with Thicke earning a #1 debut for the first time, and Tech N9ne earning his chart peak as well. Independent labels may just be the way of the future, as Mac Miller and Tech (and others) have proved again and again how they can do it...

    This week Big Sean and Juicy J enter the Billboard 200, debuting one after another. Each rapper sold a respectable amount, however, it's nothing too crazy. Sean Don actually sold less than his debut album, although he promoted Hall Of Fame as better than his debut, perhaps the fans didn't care that much? They cared enough though-- he moved 72,000 units, which gave him a #3 debut. It sometimes...

    With the school year already in session we've been seeing rappers get busy too-- albums are dropping one by one, and there are more to come, with Drake's Nothing Was The Same in ten days, and MMG's Self Made 3 prior to that, Danny Brown's OLD finally on the way, plus Meek Mill's mixtape...You get the idea. Take a break from those big hitters with a four underrated pieces of audio from the past...

    Last week we saw a solid output of music from artists both big and small. However, Drake took the cake with Nothing Was The Same leaking-- basically all talk revolved around Drizzy. Today let's take a look at five dope tracks that dropped in the past seven days, that are unrelated to the Toronto king. Let us know which underrated rappers you're feeling at the moment.
  • Talking To Logic & C-Sick On "Two Kings"

    Logic was quietly grinding in his hometown of Maryland for some time, releasing tape after tape, before he hit it big and signed a deal with Def Jam. His story is similar to that of many rappers: an absentee father, a mother with a drug addiction, and a high school drop out. However, Logic is not your average rapper. The emcee first stepped to the mixtape game with Young, Broke, And Infamous,...

    This past week saw a few big mixtape drops, from the likes of Game and Nipsey Hussle, Lil Durk, and The Ying Yang Twins (jokes...but they really did drop a mixtape). Childish Gambino came through with a new record, "Yaphet Kotto," which is always a big deal since he's dropping music far and in between (although a new album is on the way). DJ Khaled dropped a record this past which riled up a lot...

    Nothing too big transpired on the charts this week when it comes to hip-hop. That's not to say there weren't hip-hop releases-- there most definitely were, however, none could top Drake's Nothing Was The Same at #4 on the Billboard 200. And if DJ Khaled's low sales projections are correct, Khaled probably won't top Drizzy either next week. Dom Kennedy's album Get Home Safely sold over 13k opening...

    With the Yeezus tour back in full swing (albeit several dates cancelled), Ye is back to his usual antics, and that's a good thing. The Yeezus tour is far from your average hip-hop show, as those who have attended know. The event is cinematic and theatrical, with actors coming on stage (including one dressed as Jesus) through out the show, Ye ranting, and fans generally rejoicing. We attended the...

    This week we have two new-comers on Charts Don't Lie, the first being buzzing singer Jhene Aiko and the latter, veteran in the game, Bun B. Jhene Aiko pulled pretty good numbers for her debut EP, leaving us hopeful for what's to come from the West Coast native. Her buzz will only continue to climb leading up to the release of her debut album, Soul(ed) Out, and so dropping the EP was definitely a...

    This week we welcome a new entry on Charts Don't Lie, Kid Ink. Kid Ink is a prime example of a rapper who took his internet fame way past the internet. The Alumni rapper is now signed to a major label, and was able to successfully release his debut album My Own Lane-- he actually surpassed the sales projections of 40-45k. Ink sold a respectable 50k, which isn't too shabby for an artist who is not...

    As we do every week, we're bringing you some dope records that dropped in the last seven days, each of which deserve more views. This week was pretty busy in terms of major single releases, we saw the return of Luda with "Party Girls," we saw the return of Big Sean with his "1st Quarter" freestyle and we even got some free music from J. Cole, not to mention another comeback, from Cam'ron (with...

    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 week we seem to accidentally have a MidWest theme going on, with tracks from various Detroit and Chicago...

    This past week has been pretty interesting for the Billboard 200. Following the Grammys and more recently, the Super Bowl, we've seen several artists gain substantial increases in sales. First, the song that Macklemore & Ryan Lewis performed at the Grammys, "Same Love", as we reported earlier this week, saw a crazy increase in sales of 350%, while their album, The Heist, saw a 62% increase....
