Check out this cinematic new music video, directed by Hype Williams, for the latest single from Common’s forthcoming 10th studio album, Nobody Smiling. This visual plays like a short film and I really enjoy the fact that we never see Common or Vince make an appearance throughout. Nobody Smiling hits stores on July 22nd via Def Jam and No I.D.’s imprint, Atrium Records.
Flatbush ZOMBiES lace us with a new visual, shot at Coachella. The trio is on their “druggy sh*t” with “Palm Trees,” taken from the ZOMBiES’ Better Off Dead mixtape. The video was shot and directed by APLUSFILMZ.
Sugar Factory Films takes it back to 2001 by unveiling the previously unreleased video for “Y’all Been Warned” from the Clan’s album Iron Flag. While not a spectacular video itself, it’s great that this visual has seen the light of day as I’m a big fan of the immensely underrated Iron Flag. Read More

Looking at my inbox, I saw a message with “Wais P” and “NSFW” in the subject and had to take a look. The hook on this song turns one man’s adversity into another man’s slang. By the way, this is the safe-for-work version for all you cats on the West Coast or those of us on the East still grinding in the office. Check out the NSFW version here. Read More
Asher Roth is one hungry MC. Don’t believe me? Then check out this video, directed by Rik Cordero. Asher shows off his lyrical prowess and his appetite in this one, sampling some NYC’s finest fast foods (most notably Shake Shack). His outfit looks eerily similar to the one in this video though.
Despite pushing his forthcoming album back to the Spring, 50 isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. He just released a new video for Street King Immortal’s single “Major Distribution” featuring Snoop Dogg and Young Jeezy. Read More
