RiFF RAFF made a name for himself with his knack for colorful wordplay and formally announced his presence on the scene with his 2014 debut album Neon Icon. On his sophomore album Peach Panther, Riff dives deeper into the trap abyss by calling on producers like Metro Boomin, DJ Spinz, and the gentleman of 808 Mafia. If you liked "Carlos Slim," you're gonna love Peach Panther.

Dun Deal is the guy behind the breakout hits of both Young Thug and Migos. It’s been three years ago since “Stoner” and “Hannah Montana” both appeared on the third edition of the compilation mixtape series put together by DJ Spinz' Hoodrich Production Group, with which Dun Deal is still affiliated. In the time since, both acts have not only stuck around, they’ve become among the most influential young acts in the industry, with record deals to prove it.
Review: Future's "EVOL"
Review: Future's "EVOL" Feb 10, 2016 at 07:42pm
In some ways, Future’s in the most difficult position in hip hop right now. After a year-long, nearly unimpeachable run, everyone expects nothing but brilliance. His fans judge him harder than ever because new material needs to be exceptional for them to forsake 2015’s bangers, and his haters will use each new tape as further evidence that he “makes the same song over and over,” unless there’s a discernible change.

Constant new music from the game's biggest stars has become the norm. And while it's almost too much to digest, we're not complaining. This week's Top Tracks is dominated by Future, Drake, and Rihanna, and it's likely those names aren't going anywhere -- Future, especially, who's already dropped two projects this year, adding to the four he put out in 2015. And don't let me forget about Meek. Drizzy stans aren't gonna let him live any time soon, though most everything he's dropped this year has cracked the Top 10. He's finally using all the controversy to his advantage.

Top 5 Beats From Future's "Purple Reign" Jan 18, 2016 at 02:13pm
As if you needed one more reason to go see Future live on his "Purple Reign" tour with Ty Dolla $ign, the rapper decided to come through with a Purple Reign mixtape early Sunday morning. The ATL crooner already has enough material for any one fan to want to see him perform live, but Purple Reign just gave fans thirteen more reasons (maybe ten or eleven depending on if you fucked with the entire mixtape or not-- I've seen some division amongst fans in terms of how hard this project goes).

Atlanta has a rich history of rap, but in recent years it's become known for producing a large number of stars and hits through its very supportive, collaborative and creative music scene. While vocalists remain the face of music from the region, its success depends greatly on a network of producers and DJs, many of whom help in the process of finding and developing new talent, and ultimately breaking records and artists.

The heat index pushed 100 at the 2015 BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta. T-Pain was sweltering in his red leather suit jacket. "I'm sooooo hot," he said.  HNHH's own S.

As an Atlanta-based producer, DJ Spinz has been behind some of the city's best tracks of the past year, working with everyone from Young Thug to Kid Ink. Today, he hits us with something that's pretty unprecedented for ATL producers: a "visual EP." Very fittingly entitled Trips, the release consists of four instrumental tracks that come equipped with visuals by DJ Mike Nasty and cover art that references "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas." Spinz collaborated with Metro Boomin, Dun Deal and 808 Mafia on these beats.
