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.
Black Milk might be the most complete producer/rapper in hip-hop. Still, he remains chronically slept-on. This album, No Poison No Paradise, will probably cement him as a critical favorite. Stream at the link.
Earl can do this in any location, on any tour stop, for any camera crew. Let the poetry flow, bruh. Profanity and all.
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.
Chevy Woods and Juicy J link up for a new track entitled “Do This All The Time.” Classic Saturday morning smokin’ n drankin’ music right here. (more…)
Migos and French release a full version of a track that was premiered back in August. Zaytoven on the beat. You can probably bet on more future collaborations between these dudes, which wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. (more…)
Ricky Rozay talks that slick sh*t over Drake’s “Hold On We’re Going Home” single. Because who else would you want whispering sweet nothings to you than the Bawse? (Probably anyone.) (more…)
Two weeks following his well-publicized Twitter beef with Jimmy Kimmel, Kanye stops by the late night personality’s show to bury the hatchet. And rant some more. It’s not safe for you in this zoo. (more…)
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.
