Iman Omari is a smoothed out/smoked out, electro-funky, jazzy singer making waves across the Left Coast beat scene, and in the R&B world at large. His debut album VIBErations dropped earlier this summer to almost all positive reviews. He rocks this set with rap’s new class (at the 31:00 mark): Moruf, Quelle Chris, Cavalier, Ill Camille and Denmark Vesey. Check his other vids after the jump. (more…)
With A3C Volume 3 dropping in just a matter of days, the leaks are not stopping. Today, the Hardo and Devin Miles collaboration, “Round Table” is the latest offering from the album. (more…)
Must be Scarface Season. A day after Drake pays homage to 1983 M.I.-YAYO in his new video, Rozay blends plenty of Tony Montana clips into the visual for “No Games.” No Future either.
Gucci hits the beach to flex and finesse in the visual for the Mike Will-produced “Me” off Guwop’s Diary Of A Trap God project. Directed by Gabriel Hart.
Part one of Drizzy’s sit-down with Elliott Wilson at NYU. In this episode, Drake speaks on his new album Nothing Was The Same, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar and more.
Lupe is making the most of the rap’s publicity wars by dismantling popular beats and inserting himself into the conversation with symbolic lyrics about how weak the game is. It’s a good strategy: not too confrontational to be overblown but sly and referential enough to thrill those who get it. Be one of those. (Hilarious that he keeps naming these songs sequels to his earlier work when they have nothing to do with that at all.)
kanye west gives the best interviews of all time. OF ALL TIME! just when you think he’s gone into hiding for good, that the president throwing dirt on his name might permanently relegate him to begrudging exile, that a n*gga might be better off in Paris, he emerges more defiant than the last time.

Rocky gives BET’s 106 & Park the green-light to premiere (yes, apparently artists still do this in 2013) his official visual for “Fashion Killa” off Long.Live.A$AP. You may recognize the female face in the video. Hint: It’s Rihanna. Directed by Virgil Abloh.
Mr. Cozart gives us another preview of the visual for a new track, so elegantly titled, “Ight Doe.” Shot by Zae.
Drake keeps the NWTS promo going, stopping by the Hot 97 studios in NYC for a sit-down with Angie Martinez. Aubrey speaks on his “Pound Cake” collabo with Jay Z, Kendrick’s “Control” verse, Rihanna, and more. Check out parts two and three after the jump. (more…)
Nipsey unveils the tracklisting and features for his upcoming Crenshaw tape, dropping October 8. (more…)
The year’s not even over and Drake is at #11 on this list, with $10.5M banked already. King Kendrick ain’t far off his heels with $9M in total. 50 Cent has also tumbled way down this list as compared to a few years ago. It looks like the young guns are taking their official place and not just some “Saved-By-The-Bell-The-New-Class” knockoffs either. Read the full list after the jump. Hat tip to TSS. (more…)
So much here. So much. Jay Electronica meeting the Pro Era crew in Croatia at a video shoot to tell Joey Bada$$ that his name rings bells in London. Then, if that wasn’t forceful enough, he advises him to ignore anyone ‘taking shots’ to bring him down. The rap world is aware, and they’re proud. Also, really fine women in Croatia.
