These were our favorite R&B projects of the year.
As one of the most anticipated segments of the #HOTNEW14 end-of-year rollout, HNHH is pleased to present our top 50 songs of the year. As always, you're gonna have to do some scrolling to find out the #1 hottest record. Whatever your thoughts on 2014's hip-hop landscape, there was a lot going on and a lot to keep track of. Rappers started singing and singers started rapping.
Whether they're teaming up against Drake on Hot 97 or popping bottles together in the club, Chris Brown and Tyga have had quite the bromance going for a number of years now.
No album in 2014 left some A$AP fans disgruntled, but last night, Rocky took to his tumblr, Flacko Jodye Season, to answer any, yes any, and all questions that came his way. "Dashboard Confessions" was followed by the release of the "Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2" video. The Q&A features revelations on Rocky's personal preferences in many areas of interest, including: weed, sex, and music.
Valentine's Day can be rather annoying in reality, with roses, teddy bears, and cards being shoved in our faces.
We at HotNewHipHop are quite aware of our user community, which is very unique in and of itself. If you're on HNHH every day, you get used to seeing certain users all up in the comments, blasting their opinion or inciting arguments.
When you think hip-hop, North Carolina is definitely not the first thing that comes to mind. Nevertheless, hip-hop knows no borders and thanks to the internet, we often don't know the regions of the music we receive either. Back in the mid '90s, the most well-known rapper from NC could very well have been Petey Pablo, but with J.
It has clearly been a tough year for rappers when it comes to love. In 2014, we saw some very long-term relationships, marriages and short flings sadly come to an end, some of which were really unexpected.
On Sunday January 18, 2015, the hip-hop community lost yet another young genius. Steven Rodriguez, better known as A$AP Yams, died suddenly at the age of 26.
The history of rap and rock collaborations goes back to the year 1986 when Run DMC, considered one of the most influential hip-hop groups of all time, released their own version of the Aerosmith track “Walk This Way.” This song paved the way for hip-hop’s ascent in being accepted into the realm of pop, rock and other forms of mainstream music.
Fabolous is planning to take fans back to the '90s with his upcoming album The Young OG Project, due out on Christmas day. With the '90s era of hip-hop sitting heavy in his mind, we got Loso to reel off his top five reasons on why he loves the '90s.
Expectations are high for both Drake's "Would You Like A Tour" and Kanye West's "Yeezus" tour, which kick off this weekend, so we've decided to take a look back at some of the most iconic hip hop tours in history.
Weezy F Baby...please say the baby. It’s almost time! Lil Wayne is set to return with Tha Carter V this fall, scheduled to drop October 28th. Unfortunately, we can only take this with a grain of salt, as it has been pushed back time and time again.
Beef in the rap game is nothing new. Rappers have been doing it for years, whether it's to up their street cred, get media attention, or out of pure hate for another artist, it always gets a fan's attention. Beef forces a fan to choose sides and thus solidifies them as an advocate of whatever rapper they choose.
Few names have taken the hip-hop world by storm like ILoveMakonnen has in the last few months. A buzz-worthy mixtape artist came to mainstream fame after signing to Drake's OVO Sound label, along with having Drizzy blessing his single "Tuesday" with a verse. ILoveMakonnen's career hasn't been the same since, and Tuesdays at the club have been going up ever since.
This Summer has been a wild one in hip hop, with veterans like Wiz Khalifa and 50 Cent dropping new albums, newcomers like Rae Sremmurd and Bobby Shmurda creating viral sensations, and Nicki Minaj's full moon eclipsing pretty much everything else on Earth.
Many of hip-hop's most classic albums have one thing in common: they were all produced (mostly) by one man. Dr. Dre, J Dilla, the RZA, Kanye West, Madlib, and many more have all laced MCs with a collection of beats that create a cohesive aesthetic through which full LPs can thrive.
Like with any break-up, when it first occurs the fresh wound stings, but as time passes we learn to accept fate. Over the past few decades, exceptional hip-hop groups have come and gone. Some of them stopped producing music together due to nasty feuds, lawsuits and others decided to split because they knew their music had run its course.
While she may have had her doubters at certain points, its clear from last night's Summer Jam performance that Nicki Minaj is one of the most exciting voices in the rap game right now. While the Young Money rapper has had her share of incredible solo tracks, she also tends to bring a particularly great energy to features.
Bishop Nehru is one of the young guns coming up in the hip-hop world. With enough respect to have a collaboration project with MF Doom, a tour with Wu-Tang Clan and airtime on Hot 97, it's safe to say that he is in a position to blow up.
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.
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.
Theres no way to deny it, we are currently living in a time in which streetwear reigns supreme. Through recent years streetwear has evolved, not only taking a more fashion-forward approach but opening up doors for musicians, especially rappers, to slide through, leaving an imprint not only musically but aesthetically.
In celebration of the contribution hip-hop has made to fashion, HotNewHipHop will look at the 20 most fashionable rappers of all time through the decades, from the 1980s to the present, from shelltoe Adidas and gold chains, Coogi sweaters and shiny suits. From perfectly-angled fitteds to pink minks, Louis Vuitton Dons to Ice Creams and Chuck Taylors to Adidas with Wings.
When A Kid Named Cudi first began making the rounds in late 2008, it seemed to appeal to people of all musical backgrounds, with Kid Cudi rapping over a decidedly wide variety of source material.
