Throwback photos have definitely become somewhat of a a novelty at this point, but there's a certain nostalgia a photo can create that is hard to find anywhere else. We've compiled a list of 20 of the best vintage photographs of legendary rappers together-- some of the pairs are predictable, some are surprising, and a few of the rappers pictured are no longer with us. Either way, they're all...

The year 2014 marks the 18-year anniversary of Eminem's underground debut album Infinite. With almost 20 years worth of material floating around, Eminem has one of the densest musical catalogues out there. On top of that, he's also one of the most consistent rappers in the game, so you're hard-pressed to find something from Em that's not worth listening too.
This makes combing through his work...

Drake's album is officially dropping tomorrow, September 24th. Nonetheless the early leak of Nothing Was The Same has given us all enough time to go through the album from start to finish, and properly digest all the lyrics, beats, and Drake-isms.
Part of any good Drizzy album are the quotables-- and here we've gone through and found the most Drake-worthy ones-- you know, the type of shit that...

It’s hard out there for the life of a rappers wife or that ride-or-die chick. Once you beat out the competition; the gold diggers, video vixens and schemers, and officially accept the title, your public image changes, usually for the worse. The role of the rappers wife includes extended alone time, which can make you feel like a single mother, cheating allegations and a hedonistic lifestyle...

As part of our continuing Year End List series, we of course could not neglect singles. Singles are a huge part of HNHH, and obviously without new ones dropping each day we wouldn't have a site to run! This past year saw many huge collaborative singles, as well as solo efforts drop. You'll probably see several artists names on here more than once, proving what a big year it was for each...

Hip-hop artists stunt exceptionally well at the best of times. Whether it’s dope performances, providing quality albums, or being trendsetters, there’s always a lot to be celebrated within rap music.
However, even the most successful of hip-hop artists miss the mark sometimes (some more than others!). While we definitely enjoy their best moments, we can also sometimes enjoy...

Rick Ross has a well-documented case of multiple personality disorder. Sure, plenty of rappers compare themselves to athletes, characters, and mobsters, but Rozay takes it to a whole new level.
From his rap name, to his song titles, to his recurring "I think I'm..." punchlines, Ross is always looking for new personas to take on.
Mastermind was scheduled to drop today, so in its absence we've...
Eminem is undoubtedly one of the best rappers of this generation, but his ability to freestyle it pretty untestable as well. His rhymes are intricate, complex, and sometimes just plain crazy. This list shows off Shady’s rare ability to spit off the cuff. Whether it has been in a group or rapping solo on a beat, the rapper embodies the art of freestyling.
From these frees, we see that Em'...

As important as all our other lists are, nothing quite compares to this one.
In a year that saw the rise of a twerking epidemic spearheaded by Diplo and Miley Cyrus, music videos were more sexually charged than ever, especially in the rap game. With a mix of R&B joints, club bangers and straight female spitting, this list has something for everyone. You'll find visuals from Rihanna, Nicki Minaj,...
Take note, aspiring rappers - if you create a single that's both catchy and infectious enough to catch the ear of the mainstream, you could be thrust into the limelight sooner than you think (establishing connections doesn't hurt, either).
Take up-and-coming Atlanta trio Migos, for example, who are affiliated with Future's Freebandz movement and Young Scooter's Black Migo Gang. They dropped...
In the age of the internet it seems everybody can be a rapper, or at least make a feeble attempt at so doing. It may seem hard to find real talent with the game cluttered by generic, wanna-be, or insignificant rappers. That's not to say that ill emcees don't exist out there-- they obviously do, but sometimes they get overlooked 'cause some mainstream fish...

As part of our continuing Year End List series, we of course could not neglect singles. This past year saw many huge collaborative singles, as well as solo efforts drop. You'll probably see several artists names on here more than once, proving what a big year it was for each rapper. Seeing as this list spans from the beginning of 2012 til now, it was quite an...

2013 was undoubtedly a great year for rap music. If you are a die-hard hip-hop head, you are probably praying that 2014 will continue along the same lines, if not one-up 2013. Now that we're examining some of the releases lined up for this year, the chances look good.
We had some hip-hop heavyweights drop huge albums last year, this includes the likes Kanye West, Jay Z, and J. Cole, but 2014...

Halloween arrives tomorrow, and it's the time of the year where grown ass men and women can get away with dressing up as whatever they want, really, and usually for women, that involves showing as much skin as possible.
Rappers and celebrities like to one-up us regular folks by often wearing elaborate and intricate costumes, and so if you're in need of some procrastination or if you're in need...

Champagne Papi has some undeniable Instagram skills, and it's pretty safe to say, they're genetic. Looking through Drake's dad's Instagram account, you'll find a good share of flexin', and we've taken the time to compile the cream of the crop from Drizzy Senior.
Take a look through to see Champagne Papi's Papi stunt'n with the likes of Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Juicy J and more!
Not only is the rap game stressful, it can be dangerous as well.
Of all the emcees that rap about (and glamorize) gun violence, very few of them are actually about that life, but that doesn't mean they don't get caught up in it from time to time. We've compiled a list of 15 rappers that have been fired on and lived to tell the tale. Some cases may be more severe than others, but whether...
