Weekly review of the Hip-Hop and R&B sales/charts.
For now, rap releases have slowed down, but new ones are on the way. The month of June promises to be one full of album drops-- which all fall under a few different dates. The biggest date by far, is, of course, June 18th. The date which 'Ye tweeted a month ago is (unsurprisingly?) turning out to be a huge one in terms of hip-hop.
Last week was pretty reasonable on the music-front, this week is about to get mad busy though, there's a ton of albums and mixtapes dropping. I haven't downloaded a complete new mixtape for a minute though, except for Clams Casino's Instrumental Tape 2 (any song of which I could have posted here...but instead I'll just tell you to go check it out entirely).
The Air Jordan 11 Low "Infrared 23" as we're calling it, is scheduled to drop on June 14th. Grainy images of the black and white build features a white cement pattern about the ankle collar, infrared accents on the branding, and an icy translucent outsole. Little is known about the new Air Jordan 11 Low, but it is certain to make waves when it releases at the end of Spring.
Word up HNHH viewers, the Grammys were on last night, and even if you missed it, you can catch all the relevant performances here.
The best Summer League player in the world, Andre Drummond, went to a trampoline play area and worked on his Slam Ball skills of dunking while using a trampoline. He posted several vids, including one of him imitating a classic Tracy McGrady two hand reverse – popularized in the 2000 Dunk Contest. In Orlando Summer League, Dre dominated the Miami Heat and threw down some vicious dunks, bu
On Friday we took a look at Kobe Bryant’s mother auctioning a 2000 NBA Championship ring that Kobe had ordered for his mother, which was a replica of the ring he was given by the team. At the time the bidding was up over $40,000, but eventually went for over $100,000. Bryant had taken his mother, Pam, to court when she originally planned on auctioning off memorabilia she had of Kobe’s early
This week we saw a comeback from Juelz Santana, which seems to be going over pretty well, my personal favorite is definitely the Banks feature (so far). Future also dropped his F.B.G. crew tape today, which as per usual, has people divided with equal amounts hate & love. I guess an auto-tuned rapper isolates people like that. You either hate it or love it.
The past week has brought a bunch of new mixtapes, including personal favorites from Curren$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.
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
This week's UA brings you two up-tempo beats and two dark beats to enjoy in the summer heat. That kinda rhymed but it wasn't my intention. Also to clarify about UA, it's not necessarily for unknown artists, it's just artists that I'm feeling who's music HNHH posted but didn't get as much play time by HNHH viewers as I would have hoped. Aight. Sir Michael Rocks- Now You Do
As the last week of August comes to an end, here are some final summer jams to add to your playlist. A banger or two and some chill vibes. Nitty Scott, MC- Flower Child Feat. Kendrick Lamar Many clicked on this song just for the K.Dot feature, but Nitty Scott also brings it. It's a chilled out track, and the beat even reminds me of flowers. Rapsody- Round Table Discussion Feat.
With Christmas approaching soon, everyone is getting into the holiday spirit-- rappers included. On this week's edition of Underrated Audio you'll find two themed tracks that are perfect for the holidays, as well as two other joints that you should feel free to bump any time of the year.
It’s true that rapper’s like Chingy and the Ying Yang Twins have platinum selling albums. While others such as J. Cole and Big Sean do not. The reason rests not in the quality of their product, but rather when they were released. Despite the arrival of online file sharing, the music industry didn’t fall into disarray instantly. In fact, as far as hip hop is
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.
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
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.
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.
Above you will find 23 photos of 23 NBA players (both current and retired) when they were still kids. Click through the photos, and see which ones you can recognize. Some of them are easy to spot, while others may stump, and surprise you. The ones you see in the cover image above are easy ones, so try all 23 and let us know which players you couldn't guess.
Charles Barkley may not be on Twitter, but if you ask him for his opinion he will give it to you unfiltered. As part of a celebrity golf tournament, Charles was on CNBC’s “Closing Bell,” where he gave his opinion on various things including people people leeching off athletes, why he stays off Twitter, and even touched on the George Zimmerman not guilty trial verdict. Barkley says th
This week is pretty big on the music-front, we got Big Boi and Game’s album both out today, and both are equally dope and deserve multiple listens. With those LPs taking up much of my spare listening time, the rest is relegated to Sir Michael Rocks’ new shit (a sample of which is seen below) and various other singles (also seen below). Enjoy. Vado- The Awards (Prod. araabMUZIK)
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 Rumors, and

Although it is the holidays, rappers never stop putting in work. Rappers love to release shit on holidays specifically, and this year was no different. Quite a few artists came through with big records in the spirit of Xmas, but there were also some smaller gems which we're shining light on in Underrated Audio. Have a look through to see what you may have missed in the past seven days.
Ron Artest was involved in the most nefarious brawl in league history at the Malice At The Palace, but it was after he was ejected from a game in a playoff series in 2011 that he wanted to start anew, and changed his name legally to Metta World Peace.Recently, Metta was amnestied by the Lakers and then picked up by his hometown New York Knicks. Wanting to have yet another fresh start, World Peac
