    The month of April is already wrapping up, even though it seems like it just arrived. We celebrated 4/20 over the weekend, which saw an influx of weed-smoking songs on the site, as expected. Nonetheless, we like think that you can make every day a 4/20, especially when you have the right music. This week UA has four perfect tracks to do so. You can start with the smooth and chilled out "Make A...

    This week there's was some difficulty in deciding what to feature on Underrated Audio, and it wasn't because there was an excess of tracks to choose from, but sadly, the opposite. Nonetheless, we've come through, with five cuts from last week that were not given all their deserved play time. Rockie Fresh is featured again this week, as he continues his climb from the underground to the...

    Last week we questioned the grip of Will.i.am's influence on the mainstream, with his solo effort, #willpower, moving less than 30k opening week. We could also blame this on the ever-waning sales of albums in general. This week, we get LL Cool J's Authentic album as a new entry in Charts Don't Lie. The old school rapper only moved around 13k, and so we gotta ask, what factors played into his...

    This week we bring to you only four cuts that fit the title. Although it seems like more and more music is dropping as we enter the summer months, not every thing is a stand out. These songs didn't necessarily get a lot of love from our viewers, so here we are giving them the second go-round in Underrated Audio. So click through the four jams, add them to your playlist, and proceed with a few...

    This week's Underrated Audio gathers four tracks of varying kinds for your listening pleasure. Both Kevin Gates and Ace Hood dropped albums this past week, and while Ace Hood's Trials & Tribulations was undoubtedly made for the mainstream, Kevin Gates' project took a somewhat experimental approach to rap. Gates incorporates rap-singing on Stranger Than Fiction, and while the content may be...
  • "Control": Just What Hip Hop Needed? Weigh In On Kendrick Lamar's Verse

    If we've learned anything from Kendrick Lamar's verse on Big Sean's song "Control", it's that there seems to be something lacking in today's Hip Hop genre.  This is evidenced by the reaction of fans, the industry, social media and artists themselves. At HNHH, we think this discussion is a good thing for rap; but it leaves us with a lot of questions. And if the recent outpouring of reactions...

    This week as everyone is all-consumed by Kendrick Lamar's debut album good kid, m.A.A.d city, if you ever wanna step back from the hype surrounding it and put on something a little different I've got you covered. But good kid, m.A.A.d city is also a wise decision.  DEEzo- Deck Feat. Dizzy Wright Many people probably only clicked this song for the Dizzy Wright feature, but the piano-laced beat...

    This week we see three r'n'b singers are charting on Charts Don't Lie. On top of this, hip-hop is also keeping itself near the top half of the charts, with help from Kendrick Lamar and Meek Mill. With Nicki Minaj and Rihanna both dropping big albums next week, it doesn't seem like hip-hop will be leaving the charts any time soon. It's always impressive to see a rapper atop the charts, as...

    This segment of Charts Don't Lie is relatively subdued, as we have no big new entries to speak of just yet. While Childish Gambino's new album, Because The Internet, dropped last week, it has yet to start charting although it is expected to sell a pretty respectable amount, especially considering it's double the amount of his last release, Camp. Gambino is projected to move 80-90k  while Camp...

    This week was a good one for hip-hop. The BET Hip-Hop Awards delivered cyphers from plenty of rappers, and Curren$y hopped on a track with his former YMCMB bosses, Lil Wayne and Birdman, which was pretty cool. DJ Khaled also leaked a bajillion tracks off Suffering From Success (well, at least four).  Today we bring you five dope tracks that didn't get all the love they should have in terms of...

    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...

    Kendrick Lamar was right, “real people want real music, the Jig Is Up.” With A$AP Rocky’s album leaking incredibly early, the very solid debut studio effort from the Harlemite continues to sell.  All the albums making our Charts this week are featured on some kind of “Best Of” list, and as far as Hip Hop/R&B sales are concerned, fans are purchasing quality projects from...

    The past week has brought a bunch of new mixtapes, including personal favorites from Curren$y and CyHi. I'm glad to see Spitta back on his rapping shit and choosing quality beats once again. And although Pusha T's latest effort kind of fell short for me, it will nonetheless still get plays. So although we've got a bunch of quality mixtape music on deck at the moment (it seems to always...

    Just as we mentioned last week, it seems we now have some chart-toppers that are here to stay, at least for the time being. We've seen the first four artists below consistently on Charts Don't Lie since their respective albums dropped. All are steadily selling, and if they do decrease in sales, it isn't by a vast amount. We're also finally seeing the r'n'bers make their way off Charts, with...

    There was not too much I was really fucking with last week that hasn't already received enough attention, so I just found three cuts for this week. I don't really have much to say either. Rockie Fresh and Casey Veggies bring something you can chill too, Rich Hil and The Weeknd have something you can get high too, and Mike Posner..I just threw that one on there for kicks.

    All eyes were on the world of music as it was the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, which many artists used as a platform to push new material and make announcements of upcoming projects.   As far as the world of hip hop and R&B went, there were no real notable new releases.  The biggest new project to drop was Joe Budden’s, who, following the success of his A Loose Quarter mixtape, was...
