    This week we really saw the effects of Kendrick Lamar's verse on "Control" transfer over to the charts. The rapper's debut album, which officially went platinum this past week, has been slowly creeping back up the charts, something we've been seeing on Charts Don't Lie over the past weeks. Rather than jumping the usual few places this week though, K. Dot leaped 17 spots into the top 50 of the...

    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.

    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...

    It doesn't even really need to be said at this point, but this past week was dominated by Kendrick Lamar and the many "Control" responses that followed. It seems every rapper feels some type of way about some line in K. Dot's verse, even if they weren't directly called out. You've probably had your fill of anything titled "Control" so let's take a look at some of the records that dropped this...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    As we do every week, we aim to bring you several overlooked and underrated records from the last seven days with Underrated Audio. It's a collection of records that received a limited number of views, and our desire is to up that number by giving the tracks a second look over the weekend. While you may only have ScHoolboy Q's Oxymoron on your mind at this point, don't be shy to take a break from...
