    Phil Ade is the next rapper up out of the DMV area. The rapper has consistently brought rhymes and wordplay with a mix of sometimes conscious rap and sometimes ignorant rap. It's a good combination which has led to a devout following of Phil Ade fans, who expect more and more from the rapper after each mixtape. Rightly so. As Phil continues to grow and cultivate his skills, the independent...

    As reported by Billboard, 2013 was the first year that saw a decrease in overall digital music sales since the iTunes store opened in the U.S. in 2001. According to Nielsen Soundscan, track sales fell 5.7% from 1.34 to 1.26 billion units, while album sales fell 0.1% from 117.7 to 117.6 million units, equalling an overall 8.4% decline from 316 million units in 2012 to 289.4 million units...

    Our new entry on Charts Don't Lie this week belongs to Ace Hooooood. The rapper constantly on his grind delivered Trials & Tribulations after months of promotion, a huge hit single, "Bugatti," a listening event, among other things. And while it worked in his favor somewhat (it's his best sales to date), it's still not very much of an improvement from his last album, Blood, Sweat & Tears. Trials &...

    This week Big Sean and Juicy J enter the Billboard 200, debuting one after another. Each rapper sold a respectable amount, however, it's nothing too crazy. Sean Don actually sold less than his debut album, although he promoted Hall Of Fame as better than his debut, perhaps the fans didn't care that much? They cared enough though-- he moved 72,000 units, which gave him a #3 debut. It sometimes...

    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...

    We now have the numbers for what was a monumental week in rap history, with Kanye West, J. Cole and Mac Miller all dropping their respective albums on June 18th. And Kelly Rowland. This marks the first time since 2006 that three rap releases have broken the 100k mark opening week, the las time being when Jay-Z's Kingdom Come (680,000), Snoop Dogg's Tha Blue Carpet Treatment (264,000)...

    It seems like the lack-of-music we we're talking about on last week's Underrated Audio has finally come to an end. This past week we've seen huge songs drop from Drake, Fabolous, A$AP Rocky, Lupe Fiasco and Ace Hood, just to name a few. You'll see some of those songs topped our Top 100 and were featured on Top Tracks of the Week, but it wasn't only the big names dropping music this past week....

    Eminem found his way back to #1 on the Billboard 200, after spending a week at #2. The rapper sold the same amount that some rappers do opening week (if not more) and he's in his third week on shelves with MMLP2. Em's standard for success has undoubtedly been raised higher than the average rapper, so if we were to compare those sales to that of Yo Gotti's opening week for I Am, you may not seem...

    There are only two new entries within the top 10 of the Billboard 200 this week, and they belong to two rappers: ScHoolboy Q and Kid Cudi. As we said last week, Q was projected to move 150-160k, but fell slightly under that by moving 138,950 copies opening week. This was nevertheless an extremely strong showing from the TDE rapper, which gave him his first #1 debut as well as that of the label's....

    Underrated Audio aims to provide you with some dope looks from the last seven days, that flew under most peoples' radars. While they may have received front-page placement on HNHH, they didn't get as many views as they deserve, so we shine a little more light on them right here. This past week we introduced two new rappers to the site, both of whom make another appearance on this list. In...

    This past week we did receive quite a few massive hip-hop records, including a new banger from the Young Money crew, a massive remix of YG's "My Nigga," and a stand-out ScHoolboy Q record "Break The Bank," among other Very Hotttt releases. While we can basically guarantee you'll be seeing all three of these cuts in our Top 100, today we're taking a look at the records that flew under the...

    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...

    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...

    Keeping it fresh with his signature, smoked out flow, Curren$y delivers a strong introduction with the title track New Jet City. Backed by a pompous instrumental, Spitta lays it down and lauds about his boss status. From “sittin in the back of his triple black, with picnic tables, twisting up sacks” to making double our life savings, he is clearly on some new boss shit. The triumphant...
