When Travi$ Scott dropped his Days Before Rodeo project back in August he shared the visuals for its single “Don’t Play” featuring Big Sean. However, while the track was well received fans were hip to the fact that it was actually the Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan featured cut “Mamacita” that was the standout track on the project. And now Travi$ has heard you loud and clear making it the project’s second official single as he also shares the visuals for it. Check out the video for Travi$ Scott’s “Mamacita” featuring Richie Homie Quan and Young Thug after the jump.
True hardcore sh*t for your lazy Sunday afternoon right here. Detroit hip-hop links up for the “All Madden” music video, which has Phat Kat, Elzhi, and Guilty Simpson taking the fantasy world of say Grand Theft Auto into the real world. The visuals for Phat Kat’s “All Madden” has guns and violence as all three spit bars relating to brute force and animalistic savagery. For example, Elzhi goes in with this gem: “You can’t see me when I blackout even with night vision.” Damn! Peep the visuals for Phat Kat’s “All Madden” featuring Elzhi and Guilty Simpson after the jump. The cut is taken off of Kat’s Rededication to the Sucka album which is out now.
DJ Paul and Da Mafia 6ix unleash the title track music video for their Hear Sum Evil mixtape intro. And frankly the visuals are a perfect representation of the truly sadistic and evil nature of the Memphis group’s music. Check it out after the jump and we warn you… it’s pretty graphic.
Rae Sremmurd, the two youngins behind such hit songs as “No Flex Zone” and “No Type,” are giving ya’ll some new tunes for turkey day. The duo drop the visuals for “Illest Walking” produced by Honorable C Note. No flexing allowed, obviously. Peep the visuals for Rae Sremmurd’s “Illest Walking” after the jump.
Your Old Droog’s self-titled album is out now and yesterday the Droog dropped the visuals for his “Nutty Bars” cut. So we suppose it’s only right that he finally gets his just due by appearing on Shade 45′s radio show Sway in the Morning. During his time with Sway Your Old Droog took on the show’s infamous “5 Fingers of Death” freestyle segment and needless to say the Brooklyn emcee went in. Check it out after the jump.
Legendary comedian Chris Rock is certainly no stranger to hip-hop. The South Carolina born, Brooklyn raised comedian has published a list on his website documenting his 25 favorite rap albums, cowrote and starred in the 1993 film CB4 which parodies gangsta rap, appeared on rap songs by Ludacris, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, and Ice Cube, and in the past has even criticized contemporary rap. But perhaps Chris Rock’s hip-hop pinnacle was reached in 2010 when he appeared on Kanye West’s now magnum opus album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Rock was asked by ‘Ye to appear on the song “Blame Game,” in which Rock provided an extended monologue. So maybe Rock is a little bit biased when he recently called Kanye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy as the “greatest hip-hop album of all-time” in a HOT 97 interview. Check out the full interview after the jump to see what else Chris Rock had to say.
Following the release of his self-titled debut album, Your Old Droog comes back spitting (nutty bars) for his video for “Nutty Bars.” It’s grimy and real, just like your favorite old New York rap. Peep the video for Droog’s “Nutty Bars” after the jump.
Last night, a grand jury in Ferguson, Missouri came to a sudden halt when they decided to not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the August death of Michael Brown, the unarmed teenager who was shot and killed after an encounter with police. Protesters in Ferguson and across the country expressed outrage at the decision. It was soon after the saddening decision that Run the Jewels (Killer Mike and El-P) performed in St. Louis, just a few miles from Ferguson. Killer Mike, who is noted for his outspoken views toward law enforcement, delivered an emotional speech in which he blasted the country’s “war machine,” offered support to Brown’s family and the protesters, and even expressed fear for his own two sons. Watch the full video after the jump.
