Summer is nearing it's end, and while the warm weather will soon subside, the season will be remembered through the tracks that soundtracked it.

We've done our best to catalog the many songs that defined Summer 2013-- take a look at...

There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific bars are often overlooked (with the exception of anything ever uttered by Drake). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.
Keep in mind, these are the most noteworthy lyrics of the week, not necessarily the best. Also, it's hard to get...

2013 wasn't just a good year for music, we also saw some great and memorable album covers. Artwork is an important aspect of any project, as art will likely draw a listener in off first glance and can also give you an idea of what's to come-- themes can often be represented in the art, but then again, sometimes art is drawn up for pure jokes-- both instances are seen in this countdown.
The songwriting process in rap can sometimes be hard to follow. With the use of sampling, and the genre's increasingly collaborative production methods, breaking down the construction of songs can become convoluted. Unless you're in the studio, a close reading of the liner notes is the most accurate representation of what went into the music presented on record.
We've gone through the NWTS...

list of 10 NBA players who have besmirched not only their basketball
reputation, but the entire hip hop community by trying their hand at

As y'all know, Sundays are slow here at HNHH, which is reason enough to kill time with this completely arbitrary list.
Success in the rap game will find you touring the world over, and more often than not, schmoozing with other successful people outside of your field. We've compiled a list of 25 Kodak moments between emcees and other celebrities, from Tupac and Sting to 50 Cent and Samuel L....

Although 2012 has been an amazing year for rap music in general, there are several projects that didn't contribute to this collective greatness as much as they should have. There are several more that were simply not good in the first place.To say some of these works were disappointing is not to say they were full-on bad. Indeed a couple of the listed projects were actually quite good. The issue...

The plight of rappers unable to escape the lure of
the streets, and those that succumb to the pitfalls of celebrity, is an issue
that spans generations of music, from Tupac, to James Brown, back on through to
Chuck Berry. Chief Keef has emerged on
the rap scene out of nowhere, like a squad of guerilla soldiers bombarding a Special Forces
unit in a Peruvian jungle. ...

Love it or hate it, more and more of your favorite emcees are becoming acutely fashion conscious, both in and outside the genre.
Current trends include jogging pants (leather or otherwise), leather in...

Love appears to be in the rapper air, and to commend this we've created a photo gallery of various rappers...
