    Eminem week officially hit us with full force. We've seen legendary rappers like Jay Z and Kanye West both drop albums this past year, but none compared to the chart domination of Slim Shady. As we mentioned last week, a few of Em's old albums had popped back up on the Billboard 200, presumably due to anticipation for new one, MMLP2. Well, this past week, that was taken to the next level, with...

A bit of the new, with a host of MC’s coming to kicking off their rookie year as well as some leaving us all too soon. A bit of the unexpected, with former child stars bringing a freaky dance to the mainstream and...

    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.

    With the hectic-ness that was HOT 97's Summer Jam UA was missing from the site last week.

From the still-slept-on song-maker The-Dream, to rising New York rapper Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire, we've got...

    This week nothing major dropped in terms of hip-hop. Nonetheless, overall album sales went up by 42%. To what can we blame this spike in sales? It would be safe to say Black Friday, which is basically the commencement of the holiday season/shopping frenzy. It's interesting to see the effects on the charts, as many of the rap albums we're looking at today were affected positively from this season...

    As we continue to suffer through the #MusicDrought (as one HNHH commenter put it), we once again bring you weekly jams that stood out from the mainstream ish we hear all the time. There's some variety on this week's list, from simple instrumentals, to chilled out strip club music, to ignorant bangers. A little something for everyone to vibe too.

    This week we keep it short and sweet for y'all. We've got four cuts from upstarts in music, who all deliver vastly different sounds, from the indie-kinda-rap OnCue spits, to the r'n'b ish JMSN delivers, to the '90s sounding rap from Dillon Cooper. We also threw in a cut from Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks. Plus we have G-Unit rapper Precious Paris featured, so we can all reminisce on G-Unit days for a...
