If you’re missing that Innanet mixtape by Vic Mensa, you’re playing yourself right now, bro. Just catch up and we’ll forget this ever happened.

LeBron James put me on to this. Eight minutes of woooooooooooooooooow. Black out, YC.
Fresh off a critically acclaimed collaboration album with Detroit producer/rapper Quelle Chris, Brooklyn’s Cavalier sneaks us in to his listening experience party for his album Chief. It promises to be a lively, herb-invoking, spiritual bacchanalia. We’ll be tuned in for more.
Came Thru/Easily (feat. Mac Miller & Ab-Soul) from Chuck Inglish on Myspace. Chuck Inglish is now a solo artist but probably still a Cool Kid, by most accounts. This blazing visual features Ab-Soul and Mac Miller in a drug-influenced trio of wacky rap. The former Cool Kid and producer impresario might have something on his hands if he can keep corralling rappers to fit his drop-heavy beats.
French Montana with a baby tiger in each hand? Now I can start my day! Off Excuse My French.
From their Step Brothers 2 project, Starlito and Don Trip premiere “Paper, Rock, Scissors” as if to say ‘this is mere child’s play.’ Take that, rappers!
Good, clean, inspirational hip-hop music. This is the kind of song borne from the struggles of a group almost disbanded due to life-threatening illnesses, real spit. Green Street returns with “New Beginnings,” now available on iTunes for download.
Heart just skipped three beats. Hipster Girls get at me.
I don’t know that there can be an heir to Nate Dogg, but Devin the Dude is close. He has much more fun with his relationship songs, as seen here. We all know one we “probably should have” filled in the blank with.
Chance The Rapper and James Blake go riding round town with haunting vocal timbres as their guide.
There’s something to be said for a 19-year-old artist who has a sense of his place in time, and a sense of time in general. Joey Bad starts this video with “vintage footage” (if there can be such a thing for a teen rapper) and then transports himself into the antiquity of rap that he loves so dearly. He mighta translated even better on analog and VHS.
The new Chainz video is fun, an homage to the original Cash Money Crew, and another reason he’s a favorite rapper’s favorite rapper title holder in 2013.
For one of the most interesting Feature Rappers of the last five years, the crowd is unusually tame about Chainz’s cameo spots. That may be the risk of riding other songs but having a limited popular catalog of his own. He relies on hot songs to be present among the fans, so when those songs cool, his impression does too. Luckily, people always love strippers. Click the video for his full 26 minute set.
He gave the business his heart. It gave him the finger. So now Olubowale is back to his simple needs, not focused on the fame and giving the rhymes and clean minimal video to prove it. This slick Toronto short says all about how he’s quietly positioned himself as one of this year’s chart toppers without going the conflict route. Respect.
The drugged-out, socially aware, off-the-cuff troupe is here with a video from BetterOFFDead. Can’t tell if they’re the heroes or the villains in their own horror movie. That’s a good thing.
