Hip-Hop mastering commonalities

Hi Howie!

What are the most consistent problems you face in hip-hop mixes and has it changed over the years because things have switched from a darker, sample based sound to a brighter more synth/ electronic based sound?

Usually the biggest problems are too much low bottom not translating well to cheap speakers or headphones.

A lot of these records are also mixed in less than perfect conditions and can't properly monitor the bass levels.

I can fix low end issues because my room and monitors go down so low, and I know just where to put the low end in a way that will translate.
