    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...

    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...

    It was a good week for Underrated Audio. See below for the awesome tracks from last week that didn't get played as much as they should.Ab-Soul- SOPA Feat. ScHoolboy Q With Kendrick Lamar blowing up and ScHoolboy Q next up, Ab-Soul is oft over-looked in the TDE camp (along with Jay Rock). Anyways, I think that will soon change when he drops his project Control System. Every song I've heard off...

    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...

    Perhaps Snoop made a poor career choice by switching from hip hop to reggae.  If he truly wanted to move units he should consider an R&B persona.  Rhythm and Blues singers have been performing mightily on these charts as of late, but this week they took over fully.  Only one “Hip Hop” album managed to move any significant numbers, and that was Kendrick Lamar’s seminal album Good Kid,...

    Wowwww I can't believe it's already July. A lot of good ish has been steadily dropping since summer started. G.O.O.D. Music has been releasing new singles, MMG, and all the other relevant crews I don't feel like listing. I wish it was summer year round. Big Boi- Gossip Feat. UGK & Big K.R.I.T. This is one of the singles off Big Boi's upcoming album Vicious Lies & Dangerous...

    You know what it is. My favourite cuts from the past week, there's probably one or two you overlooked so now's your time to look them over. Some solid summer jams.  Jeremih- Val Venis (Remix) I've really been digging Jeremih's shit lately (see: this). He's doing a little bit of rap-singing on this and I like it. The beat is dope, laced with some hi-pitched chiming and bass every...

    There were a lot of huge records that dropped this past week (two, at least, which Meek Mill & Drake were a part of), anyways, while I'm sure most people checked out those, here's some that might have been neglected. Brother Ali- Not A Day Goes By (Prod. Jake One) Brother Ali is not one of those artists who lets go a song a day, so when he does put out music I pay attention, and he...

    This week's Underrated Audio will put you on to five cuts from rising artists all of sorts. There are rappers representing the Beast Coast movement like The Underachievers, we've got Chi-town covered with up-and-comer Giftz, there's the expiremental Ro Ransom, and Sir Michael Rocks gives us some dope delivery on "In A Minute." Plus we have a track from female singer Jhene Aiko, who has some of...

    This week on Charts Don’t Lie, R&B artists who infuse their music with hip hop collaborations and sounds continue to rule, however things are about to change as A$AP Rocky’s studio debut is projected to top the Billboard 200 next week.  In the interim, we see the holdovers from 2012 selling solid with some of the best albums of the year still appearing on the charts.  If you’re...

    This past week we saw a pretty solid amount of music get released, however, all things turned to Drake when his single "All Me" dropped (so it really is All Drake). But for Underrated Audio we will take the focus off Drizzy for a minute and present you with five tracks from the past week that may have been swallowed up by those huge joints from Drake, 2 Chainz, etc. We contemplate what's up with...

    We're still waiting on the exact numbers for what may be the biggest week in hip-hop since 2006 (Kanye West's Yeezus, J. Cole's Born Sinner, Mac Miller's WMWTSO and Kelly Rowland's Talk A Good Game all dropped on the 18th of June), but projections for the sales show that Cole is closer to 'Ye's numbers than we previously thought. Both Mac and Kelly are still projected to do respectable numbers as...

    Jay-Z basically dominated the web this past week with the release of Magna Carta Holy Grail and all the interviews and promo that followed. Music-wise, there wasn't much else too major, with releases from the usual suspects like Juicy J and Ace Hood, and even Cory Gunz and Joey Bada$$. While those songs have definitely not been overlooked this past week, Underrated Audio brings you four tracks...
