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.
Fabolous' whole campaign centered around his new album The Young OG Project is the '90s. The album was inspired by '90s music, and so he's going full force with that motif for the album roll out, from the cover art release to his promo.
Amid the recent drama centered around Drake and Diddy, we had a hankering for a Puff Daddy throwback record. Back when Diddy wasn't slapping other rappers because they hopped on a Boi-1da beat before he did, he was actually releasing music, and one such song was this Bad Boy Records anthem.
Nicki Minaj's The Pinkprint is closing in on us, and after listening to her latest drop, "All Things Go," we're taking it back to Beam Me Up Scotty, Nicki's third mixtape and probably her most well-known (as well as her most recent).
If you're on HNHH daily you've probably seen DJ Khaled YMCMB Savior beg us at least once to put a DJ Khaled throwback this week. He was really persistent, even other commenters started asking on his behalf, so we obliged.
Weezy F season seems to be in full effect, despite the rapper postponing his highly anticipated album Tha Carter V until December. Nonetheless the rapper has been on a hot streak with his verses, whether on featured appearances or his own tracks.
Here's a good way to celebrate Throwback Thursday. Today Noisey has unearthed some previously unreleased handwritten poetry from the legendary Tupac, written before his rise to fame, when he was just 17-years old.
Raekwon has been 18 weeks strong with his weekly throwback records. The rapper took us back to the '70s last week with his "Back Stabbers" throwback, and this week we advance about twenty years to Mary J. Blige's 1995 single "All Night Long," from her album My Life.
Raekwon has been reaching back a little further than most for throwback Thrusday. The rapper has been consistently dropping a weekly freestyle, often sampling soul and disco, rather than you know, like "No Flex Zone" or something.
Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz would go on to do plenty of collaborations, but this "Duffle Bag Boy" was the first big one, and it came back when Chainz was still Tity Boi. Playaz Circle scored a hit with this one, with Wayne delivering arguably one of his all time best hooks.
We have a persistent commenter asking us to throw up a Murder Inc. throwback record, and I promise it'll happen soon, but this week we're going with 50 Cent's infamous diss records towards Irv Gotti's crew and Ja Rule specifically, with assistance from Eminem and Busta Rhymes. Sorry (not sorry).
