    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...

    Volume one established the idea that an enduring fan of Hip Hop is committed come hell or more auto-tune. It’s easy to complain about the bad, or to become complacent with the good enough. However, if this metaphorical marriage is going to work out, forgiveness must be given for the mistakes artists make, and fans need to be rewarded with quality product in turn. ROMANCE & HIP HOP? Last...

    This past week we didn't see too many dope tunes drop, the internet was taken over by that whole Drake and Chris Brown fight. However, these three songs deserve a spot on your iPod. The Alchemist- Flight Confirmation Feat. ScHoolboy Q & Danny Brown This was the song I was looking forward to most off producer The Alchemist's album Russain Roulette which drops July...

    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...

    As November fast approaches, we're all getting excited to hear Eminem's come-back (we hope) on MMLPII on November 5th. However, October 15th was also an important day for hip-hop, with three of the most dope and underrated emcees all dropping records: Boldy James, Dom Kennedy, and Black Milk. Dom Kennedy is sort of making his way out of that underrated category, with Get Home Safely receiving...

    There aren't very many changes in this week's Charts Don't Lie compared to last week. The main list of artists has remained the same, as we have yet to receive any new rap or r'n'b debuts on the Billboard 200, although Kid Ink's debut album My Own Lane will begin charting in the near future. Ink's RCA album is projected to move a solid 40-45k, which will land him within the top 3. That's not too...

    We're still awaiting the albums of both Iggy Azalea and Future to enter the charts, but this week we've got two new entries coming from August Alsina's Testimony and Dizzy Wright's State Of Mind EP. August Alsina surprised us with his first major-label album nabbing a strong debut at #2, moving 67,171 copies opening week-- compare this to the projections for Future's sophomore album, which is...

    Ty Dolla $ign has been on the come-up for awhile, and although he still is on his way up, he's definitely started carving out his own lane within the rap/r'n'b game. The West Coast native has been steadily dropping mixtapes, since 2011's House On The Hill, to his most recent, Beach House 2. All the while he's kept close ties with frequent collaborators like DJ Mustard, Teeflii, YG, and the...

    Soon Jay-Z is going to be on the charts, undoubtedly dominating the top spot, which belonged to J. Cole this week. Jay-Z's new album has made waves not only for it's creative rollout but for changing the rules of RIAA, in order to ensure the album went platinum before it even dropped, unlike our other chart-toppers this week, who are working their way to platinum the old-fashioned way. On top of...

    Shaquille O’Neal has dabbled in law enforcement since before his retirement, and was always clear that he wanted to become an actual cop some day.  Now after serving as a reserve cop on Miami Beach, Diesel was sworn in as a police officer for the small town of Golden Beach. With only a population of approximately 919 people, Officer O’Neal will mostly be working a speed-trap handing out...

    On Friday we posted a photo of Dwyane Wade's ex wife in the streets of Chicago holding a sign that read "NBA Miami Heat Star Mother Of His Children Out On The Streets,"  and now we get more info about why Siovaughn Funches-Wade was "protesting."  It all stems from the court case between the two, as we reported earlier had sued the Heat star, and then that lawsuit was removed.  Wade's ex was...

    We see two new entries when it comes to hip-hop on Charts Don't Lie this week. They belong to Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt and A$AP Mob's A$AP Ferg. While both rappers moved respectable amounts, it gives us a moment to think about the whole ideas of crews in hip-hop, and how no matter what, there is always one rap leader who has to make an impression on the audience first. For OF, this is Tyler,...

    This week we saw pop star Rihanna, who also has one foot in the urban-sphere, rise to the top of the charts with her album Unapologetic. The LP was extremely pushed in all media markets, and her #RihannaPlane launched it into the internet stratosphere. Now we see how good advertising and promo can really effect sales--yes, Rihanna was a superstar in her own right prior to the album drop, but she...

    The past two weeks were dominated by Drake, who in turn dominated the charts with Nothing Was The Same. Now Justin Timberlake has taken over, with the release of  The 20/20 Experience 2, his second album in the span of a year, and his second album to debut at #1 in that same time. While this album has received generally much less favorable reviews than the first part, that hasn't stopped fans...

    Charts Don’t Lie… how easily you’re hated. Understandably so considering math can be agitating. That said this ongoing chart is an aggregate of the best record keeping the industry has to offer. From Nielsen Soundscan to Billboard and beyond, these calculations are here to provide important information. And this week is no different. For starters, as projected, 2 Chainz took the...

    The spike in album sales we saw accompany the Grammys and Valentine's Day has now subsided, with overall album sales having decreased by 20% over the week. Nonetheless our charts are staying pretty consistent: two female stars continue gripping onto the top spots of Charts Don't Lie, while their male counterparts take spots beneath them. While many artists decreased in album sales this week, the...
