Valentine's Day can be rather annoying in reality, with roses, teddy bears, and cards being shoved in our faces.
For years, we have tried to decode the enigma that is Wale. Rather than being lauded for his gift of gab, he's been overshadowed by his shill cries for acceptance. You see, Wale always had the skills to be a special artist in hip-hop. Nobody questioned his motor in the booth. Nobody questioned his scintillating wordplay.
Over the 20 or so years they've coexisted, rappers and reality TV have had a pretty great relationship. "Flavor of Love" is still one of the most popular reality programs of all-time, more people know Xzibit for "Pimp My Ride" than his appearances on Dr.
Have you ever scrolled through Instagram and instantly bursted into uncontrollable laughter? Raised your eyebrow? Scratched your head? Instantly smiled? Thought, "Damn. That's dope."? Stared at your phone? Did an instant repost? HNHH is sure you've answered yes to at least one of those questions.
Fashion has always been a very big part of the hip hop and it is only getting bigger. Today we are witnessing a number of rappers who treat style as an important part of their career and lifestyle. Not only are they wearing the latest collections, they are also being invited into the fashion world.
2013 was dominated by emerging producers. Mike WiLL Made It and DJ Mustard, who seemed like newcomers at the top of the year, ended things off with major label artist deals, hits with some of the biggest artists in the game.
Top 15 "Apache" Samples: The Evolution Of One Of Hip Hop's Most Well Known Instrumentals Feb 21, 2014 at 03:40pm 7,091 Views
Hip Hop’s favorite sample has the least Hip Hop origins. Jerry Lordan, a British RAF veteran and part-time songwriter, was inspired by the story Massai - who was the last Apache left after Chief Geronimo surrendered New Mexico to the United States. Lordan composed the riff and legendary British guitarist Bert Weedon originally recorded it.
Last week, RiFF RAFF revealed on Twitter that he would be joining the WWE with the help of hall of famer Hulk Hogan. Professional wrestlers and rappers are more similar than you may think. They are both incredibly passionate about their trades. The average hip hop artist and rapper have a 24-hour grind to make themselves successful, not to mention travelling non stop.
"This is ladies night and our rhymes is tight, oh this is ladies night...," Missy Elliott sang on the 1997 hit track, "Ladies Night" that she collaborated on with Angie Martinez, Lil Kim, Left Eye and Da Brat. The song was featured on the "Nothing to Lose" soundtrack.
Bad Boy Records was founded in 1993 by a lesser-known-at-the-time Sean Combs, who later went by Puff Daddy, P. Diddy and now Diddy. Combs began his music business experience as an intern at Uptown Records (that's a good bit of motivation for everyone interning out there). However, after becoming an A&R executive he was fired in 1993, prompting him to start Bad Boy Records.

Big Sean has always been a gifted wordsmith. Puns, metaphors, similes--you name it. On occasion, though, he's been guilty of reaching: "ass-quake, ass-tate, ass-tray..." He's better than that. And on Dark Sky Paradise he proves it. Lyrically, this is Sean's deepest work, but he doesn't ditch the wordplay games. In fact, some of these bars are his wittiest ever.
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.
There is much we can learn from rap Instagram, much to read between the lines as rappers attempt to craft their image without pesky publicists looking over their shoulder. This week was an eclectic one in the hip hop world, as Diddy headed to the strip clip, Talib Kweli put on a free concert in St.
The Bill Cosby saga continued over the weekend when the New York Times uncovered additional deposition transcripts in which the comedian presented himself as an "unapologetic, cavalier playboy, someone who used a combination of fame, apparent concern and powerful sedatives in a calculated pursuit of young women." Since Barbara Bowman's November 2014 op-ed in the Washington Post
Dirty Sprite 2 may be projected to do huge first week sales numbers, but Future got just as much #DS2 love from other rappers as he did from fans, as numerous rappers quoted lyrics from the album on Twitter to let everyone know they were bumping it. In terms of respect, that counts for at least as much as a good old fashioned plug.
"Rap is something you do, Hip-hop is something you live," legendary rapper KRS One professed in the song so fittingly titled "Hip Hop Vs.
Yesterday (May 19), Drake announced the schedule for the second annual OVO-run Houston Appreciation Weekend (HAW), which kicks off tomorrow (May 21) with a Bun B tribute event and ends Sunday (May 24) with a Drizzy/Future "Jungle" show and a Boosie Badazz after-party.
Dissecting the foibles of the hip hop community as expressed in under 140 characters on Twitter. Not just used as a device to flood people's timelines with your new track, album, video, or clothing line, sometimes rappers truly channel the unfiltered interaction with fans. This week features Tyler, The Creator, 50 Cent, Lil B and more!
When hip hop 'It' couple Jay Z and Beyonce recently showed up courtside at the Brooklyn Nets vs. Miami Heat game amidst major controversies. the buzz of the pairs appearance was carried around swiftly.
What a week it has been in hip-hop. It's a week that got kicked off with tragedy. It's going to take some time for the wound that A$AP Yams left us to heal.But the game still continues just like he would've wanted. The back half of January saw strong releases from Lupe Fiasco and Joey Bada$$. Lil Wayne's Sorry 4 The Wait 2 has gotten a mixed response, but at least one rapper approves.
For no particular reason other than the fact that animals are fucking cute, we present to you a photo list of rappers chilling with a variety of animals. From the most common, dogs, to baby tigers, penguins, dolphins, parrots and cats, rappers show love for all species, and they also show that no one's too cool for some one-on-one animal time.
