Off Rubber Souls, this video knocks as does the beat, produced by 6th Sense. Sleeper album of the fall so far.
This that late-night Williamsburg bridge, underneath the J line, stopping at the Dominican buffet groove. eXquire tells a love story in five minutes, the exact way to do it.
Impromptu freestyle session breaks out with A$AP Rocky rapping alongside Kosha Dillz and Matisyahu on the beatbox. Never underestimate this art form.
Joey Bad offers this bonus cut “My Yout” from his soon-to-drop Summer Knights EP. It sounds like he’s had Distant Relatives and The Best Of Stephen Marley playing on repeat in the headphones. Not bad and certainly a step out of the boom-bap area where he got cozy for a while. Nice to hear the Pro Era leader going for uptempo rhythms.
Lil Herb hangs on the block and drops a new clip for “Control Me,” directed by HiDef. Herb’s Welcome To Fazoland: The Movie project is on the way.
Killer Mike and El-P drop a visual for “Get It,” one of the strongest tracks off their Run The Jewels project. The video contains a bunch of footage from the duo’s North American tour.
Happy Birthday Aubrey. Or as they say in Yiddish, A freilekhn geburtstog! Or something like that. The boy from Toronto turns 27 today. We figured, what better way to celebrate the 27th anniversary of Drake’s birth than to reflect on his career-long body of work? From Comeback Season to Nothing Was The Same, we compiled (at least what we think are) the 27 strongest tracks from his catalogue. (more…)
Because The Internet, Childish Gambino’s upcoming album, seems like a nod to the minute-rice, 2 fast 2 furious commenting nature of the web today. The former television actor and comedian turned dedicated emcee is doing his best to ingratiate himself to the rap world, while accepting that it may never take to him (or his sense of hipster irony) as much as he might like. All the same, the work is there. Check out his interview with Power 105′s Breakfast Club after the jump. (more…)
OVO’s PARTYNEXTDOOR drops the visual for ”Break From Toronto,” one of the standout cuts from his self-titled debut project. The track samples Miguel’s “Girl With The Tattoo.” Directed by Liam MaCrae.
These two have great comic timing together. I see movies in Nicki’s future if she can improvise and do accents this well.
Rae and Ghost are leading the Wu Tang resurgence, and even though Regis Philbin pronounces the name ‘Kae-ron’ in an early blooper, this kind of look will last more than he knows. Plus, I couldn’t think of a better nickname for Regis than “The New ODB.”
Paul Wall releases the visual for “My Lac On Vogues,” which should appear on his upcoming Check Season tape. You gotta respect the hell out of the fact that Paul Wall is forever cemented in 2005 with no plans of ever leaving. That’s what we call artistic integrity, folks.
