10 rappers who star in movies about their lives.
It's been well over a decade since Eminem reveled in the center of seemingly every fiery controversy in popular culture. Never before had an artist dragged so many bystanders into his path of destruction. His assaults were ghastly, yet outstanding displays of rhyme, cadence and character. In the years of his prime, many would step foolishly into his crossfire, while others simply had it coming.

Make sure to also participate in our "Problems Polls". // What's The Top Song With "Problem" In The Title? //
#FreeBoosie may be the latest hash tag to be retired, but that doesn't mean he's been forgotten. Torrance Hatch, aka Boosie BadAzz, has capitalized greatly on the momentum of his prison release this past spring. The Baton Rouge native has been making moves faster than most, with his release of an assortment of remixes and singles. True fans or new fans, there’s no denying his appeal.
The chemistry between Wayne and Drake is surreal. Even though Drake is considered Lil Wayne’s protégé, he has diligently worked his way up to his boss’ level and might have even superseded him. Regardless, when Tune and Drizzy collide on a record, they always produce the best music together. Their catalog is longer than Anthony Davis’ wingspan.
Tim Westwood may not look like your average hip-hop personality, but the 57-year-old gangly white dude, always rocking a different color polo, is an industry legend, and he's been there from the beginning. In the late 80s, Westwood was one of the first DJs in Europe to play hip-hop on mainstream radio.
What most music fans don’t know is that a major record label deal is not guaranteed change in your pocket. A recording contract is essentially a legal agreement which allows the record label to exploit an artist’s work through recorded material. This includes the album’s release, promotion, marketing, sales… you name it.
Summer's basically over, so it's a good time to look back at all the great times you had with your best friends. Whether that was facing a couple blunts before watching a Guardians of the Galaxy bootleg, or maybe laying down a few platinum-selling songs together, good times were definitely had. See, rappers are just like us, they like to chill with their friends and do fun shit.
Before Drake hit the big time, he was another rapper putting out mixtapes trying to get his music out there to the world. (Well, and a Canadian TV star, but that's kind of another story.)
Ranking Jay Z albums can be like doing any other Jay-related list: it's impossible to get it right. The God MC himself ranked his albums last year via Life + Times and caused an uproar from just about everyone, including die hard fans, casual listeners and committed Internet trolls, who bombarded the comment section with commentary like, "Nah! Vol.
We all know that rappers often get a bad rep with the press. Accusations of criminal activity, encouraging violence, or just plain bad behavior are common for hip hop artists. Selfless and generous acts by hip hop stars seldom get the coverage or attention they deserve.
When most people think of rap and hip-hop, they often only reference American artists. They’re given most of the credit when it comes to claiming the genre as their own and being responsible for its evolution, in some ways, rightly so, after all, New York was hip-hop's birthing place.
Rick Ross is excessive by nature, sometimes when it's not even necessary. To be fair, he was forced to be this way after the feud with 50 Cent and being outed as a correctional officer through those infamous photos. After the flames, Ross decided to expand his myth and rattle off one No. 1 album after another (the critically acclaimed Teflon Don is the only album to peak at No. 2).
WILD 'N OUT is known for pitting rappers and comedians against one another in a series of competitions. To celebrate the show returning for its fifth season, HNHH has compiled a list of artists we'd like to see go head to head in freestyle battles. We've pitted J. Cole against Drake, Kanye against Ray J, DJ Khaled against Kevin Hart and more in this freestyle faceoff!
Rappers from all over the United States are popping up, showing off their talents and making a name for themselves in their cities of choice. Whether it's Brooklyn, Chicago, Los Angeles or Miami, there are young emcees repping each region. These are some of the main areas inhabited by rappers, or areas one would expect.
Wiz Khalifa, 2 Chainz, Kid Ink & More Make Super Bowl XLIX Predictions Jan 30, 2015 at 03:28pm 29,712 Views
The Super Bowl is imminent. With the 49th annual Super Bowl going down this Sunday, February 1st, we decided to get word from various hip-hop artists on who they think will take the cake at the championship game.
The inspiration rappers have drawn from comic book characters over the years is undeniable, whether it be superheroes, villains or relatively normal protagonists who happen to find themselves in extraordinary circumstances.
Two days back we had an article about the origins of certain flows, and some of our ever reliable commenters took it to be some sort of ranking of the best flows, which was not the case. The entire point of the article was to point out that some flows are influenced by region, and some by other artists.
In recent years there has been a movement of emcees who have a new approach to rap. Many are products of the internet, and they differ from past generations in that their style is not dictated by region, but rather their own creation. These rappers are changing the game by throwing it some curve balls, their creativity being an unpredictable force.
Yesterday, Kanye West tweeted, and as usual, the Internet crumbled to shreds. Last month, Kanye tweeted a picture (of what looked like an album cover) with the words: So Help Me God. Rather than a cry for help, we took 'Ye's words to be the title of his upcoming album, which he plans to release this year--of course, he won't tell us when.
In the world of hip hop "beef" isn't unusual, in fact it's customary. Some of the greatest and most historical moments in the culture and genre have been produced because of contention. Most disagreements are between two or more artists and/or producers, but from time to time artists have been in dispute with their record labels.
Born and raised in Philly, DJ Drama has made a name for himself in the hip hop game over the years. While his career set sail after becoming the official DJ for T.I., he has played a crucial role in the onset of mixtapes in the rap world. The Golden Mixtape Era, which started about ten years ago, is now stronger than ever.
Tattoos have become a pretty popular trend among adolescents and adults in today’s culture, especially within the rap and hip-hop community. While your average person may choose to get a tattoo or two, rappers and other artists in the music industry often adorn their entire bodies with artistic ink, such as Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, 50 Cent, DMX, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne and Kid Ink.
With the Grammys coming up this Sunday, we thought it would be a good idea to take a look at the times they have upset us, the hip-hop community, the most. Because nobody is perfect and the Grammys are certainly no exception.
Following up last week's Top 10 of rappers who were bodied on their own shit, we're moving on to Yeezy's production. Expect a new Top 10 list each Monday going forward, and if there's a subject you want us to tackle shout it out in the comments.
