    New Years Eve celebrations went down just a few days ago, so this weekend you may still be recovering from all your mid-week partying. While you do that, you can take a look at the four chill cuts sitting in Underrated Audio this week. No records too turned up this weekend. From a little-known Arkansas rap group to Sean Price, here are four pieces of audio we're giving a second look.
  • Durant Says Reporter's On Molly & J.R. Smith Insults NY Reporter

    The temperatures rising during the summer and so are tempers as both Kevin Durant and J.R. Smith had some choice words for reporters who had rubbed them the wrong way. ESPN’s Chris Palmer tweeted a list of the 17 “smartest” players in the NBA.  Among that list: Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, LeBron James, Steve Nash, and Ricky Rubio, to name a few.  One name that was absent is the league’s...
  • Dwyane Wade's Ex Wife Has Meltdown After Losing Court Case

    On Friday we posted a photo of Dwyane Wade's ex wife in the streets of Chicago holding a sign that read "NBA Miami Heat Star Mother Of His Children Out On The Streets,"  and now we get more info about why Siovaughn Funches-Wade was "protesting."  It all stems from the court case between the two, as we reported earlier had sued the Heat star, and then that lawsuit was removed.  Wade's ex was...

    HNHH spoke to random people on the street to test their knowledge of Hip Hop trivia for both popular and lesser known facts.  The results were interesting. In this first episode, see if you can tell which artist only sold 1,000 copies of their debut album, was not a backup dancer prior to becoming a rapper and who wasn't an artist mentioned in Kendrick Lamar's "Control" verse.   Don't forget...

    The past two weeks were dominated by Drake, who in turn dominated the charts with Nothing Was The Same. Now Justin Timberlake has taken over, with the release of  The 20/20 Experience 2, his second album in the span of a year, and his second album to debut at #1 in that same time. While this album has received generally much less favorable reviews than the first part, that hasn't stopped fans...

    Underrated Audio is here to provide you with choice cuts from the past week that seemed to be over-looked by the average viewer-- meaning they didn't get as many views as they deserved. This week we've got six tracks spanning the genres of r'n'b and hip-hop, including one that's not necessarily either. We're covering all bases here, with singers like Tinashe and TeeFlii to rappers like Lil Bibby...

    Eminem is one of the biggest things to happen to hip-hop, period. He challenged the status quo and found success as a white artist in a predominantly black industry. Though he was not the first white rapper to blow, Eminem is one of the few to be consistently ranked among the greatest rappers of all time. Though his recent work hasn't been as impactful as earlier efforts, everyone from the kids...

    As the past few months have been slow all-around when it comes to music, we are not seeing many, if any, new hip-hop entries on the charts. However this shortage of music is coming to a close; the past week or two have seen many big songs drop, and a mixtape or three. We'll definitely begin to see some new names on Charts Don't Lie as early as next week,...

    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...

    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...

    This week we saw Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience break another record, after first topping Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV in first week sales, it became the first record in 2013 to crack one million sales, going platinum just two weeks after it dropped. On the other end of the spectrum, we saw Weezy F's album, I Am Not A Human Being II, sell a strong 217k, but it did not really live up to...
