Life is too short to listen to bad music. So…let AFH fight through it for you and only supply you with that great stuff. Despite the reports, Hip-Hop is alive and well and, in many ways, is better than it’s ever been. Not only are we able to go back... Read more

There are a LOT of these weekly series now: webisodes, freestyles, etc. Skyzoo's Penny Freestyle Series is looking like it's going to be among the better ones. Last week, he killed the Otis beat. This week he jumps on a couple of Neptunes tracks and brings more heat. Check out... Read more

Tyler the Creator put together a pretty ill Summer Mix.

As you might expect, it's pretty heavily Pharrell-influenced, but there are some cool surprises, as well. Here's what Tyler had to say about it: Hi. I’m On A Big Tour In Europe Right Now, Pretty New To This. I’m Used To Spending Summers Not Doing Anything Productive With My Friends.... Read more

This is the latest installment of #philadefriday.  The track is a monster too.

What do you think of N.E.R.D's new track Hypnotize You (produced by Daft Punk)? See the Letterman performance here.

The Neptunes are always ones to push the envelope. They remain consistent in that regard, both with the song and the performance.  Pharrell and Kanye have kept hip-hop alive and kicking over the last 10 years.  Here's N.E.R.D.'s latest chapter: ExternalVideo.969771&w=425&h=350&fv= Props to Daft Punk for the beat.  Looks like...

Pharrell has been stretching out musically lately. The new N.E.R.D. could go in many directions. Here are a few possibilities.
