    As we do every week, we aim to bring you overlooked records that dropped in the past seven days with Underrated Audio. These were cuts that didn't get a ton of views, so we're hoping to give them a boost with a second look. This week's edition features music from Tsu Surf, Roc Marciano, GLC and more.

    It seems like good music has been slow lately. Although we're still being bombarded with content on the daily, it seems like you have to wade through a lot to find the gems. Don't worry though, 'cause we've found the gems from the past week for you already. Check out cuts from Joey Bada$$, Logic and more that you might have overlooked. If you're feeling like it's more of...

    Joe Budden released his fifth studio album recently, No Love Lost. No Love Lost found Joe openly speaking about his struggles and the lessons he's learned from them, all with brutal honesty. The rapper is a man of few words, however maybe it's because he doesn't need to say much-- his music says it all. We decided to talk to the Mood Muzik rapper about "Last Day" featuring Lloyd Banks and Juicy...

    This past week we didn't see too many dope tunes drop, the internet was taken over by that whole Drake and Chris Brown fight. However, these three songs deserve a spot on your iPod. The Alchemist- Flight Confirmation Feat. ScHoolboy Q & Danny Brown This was the song I was looking forward to most off producer The Alchemist's album Russain Roulette which drops July...
  • Cashing In: Minaj for the Masses
    7,714 Views
    The first time we heard Nicki Minaj was on “Monster,” a track that includes heavyweights Jay-Z, Rick Ross and Kanye, it was her ferocious verse that stood out the most. It automatically exhibited her potential to be this generation's dopest female M.C.   Due to the fact that she signed with a label like Young Money, whose primary focus is to generate revenue (ergo, pop), it...

    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...

    Last week we questioned the grip of Will.i.am's influence on the mainstream, with his solo effort, #willpower, moving less than 30k opening week. We could also blame this on the ever-waning sales of albums in general. This week, we get LL Cool J's Authentic album as a new entry in Charts Don't Lie. The old school rapper only moved around 13k, and so we gotta ask, what factors played into his...

    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. If you check the site every day, you know there was a bit of drought when it comes to VERY HOTTTTT records, but all...

    This week we see a new entry in Chart's Dont Lie, with Tyler, the Creator's WOLF having dropped on April 2nd. The rapper is definitely expanding his fanbase, with this album impressively debuting at #3 on the Billboard 200. Tyler has been known for extreme and controversial lyrics, which may have made him less accessible to the general public in the past. Now it seems like the public is...

    This week we see Tyga make an entry onto the charts, while Tyler, the Creator, whose album dropped last week, fell quite a bit from his impressive #3 debut. Tyga's Hotel California is definitely a venture into the more typical sound that has defined Tyler's career, with plenty of DJ Mustard-esque beats and the accompanying flow. However, maybe this signature sound isn't the signature fans are...

    French Montana joins Charts Don't Lie this week, with his debut album Excuse My French. French, Diddy and the whole Bad Boy team went hard with promo for this one, rounded up the biggest features in the game, but the album wasn't able to move more than 50k opening week. With the decrease of hip-hop album sales forever waning, this isn't horrible, but it isn't the "classic" numbers French may have...

    The first week of April has arrived, and along with it came a few jams from some of the usual suspects: King Chip, Action Bronson, Young Roddy and Travi$ Scott. These four are no strangers to Underrated Audio, but soon one or two of them may get too big for the UA circuit and move on up to Top Tracks of the Week. Namely, Travi$ Scott, who almost reached 24,000 views on his Wale-featured...
