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…)
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.)
Drake’s third studio album officially hits stores today. Hit the jump to listen to Spotify’s stream of the album. (more…)
One week in advance, iTunes hooks users up with a free stream of JT’s new album. (more…)
Detroit rapper/producer Black Milk debuts a gritty track entitled “Dismal” from his upcoming No Poison No Paradise album, which drops October 15. (more…)
Gibbs & Madlib drop another smooth offering from their Deeper EP. (more…)
I think I like Future better when he slows things down. This is off-brand screaming and almost rapping. The good news is that the video has a few key cinematic turns, and keeps you watching along while he chirps. Capers and girl gangs and everything.
Freddie Gibbs is the new Tupac of the stage. He keeps it all the way real, only performs shirtless and basically dares anyone to challenge his sincerity 100 per cent of the time. If that ain’t Pac-esque, y’all listened to too much Ja Rule in the early 2000s. This song goes wild.
Audio Dope…this is Spitta Andretti over a Harry Fraud production reminding us that Jet Life is the best life. Such a vivid depiction over a simple soundscape makes it the most alluring lifestyle music in rap. Lay back with a cold one…or a lit one, and enjoy.
Top Dawg Entertainment artist Isaiah Rashad stuns with this boldly spare video for “I Shot You Down.” His lyrics suggest inventive and gritty hood romanticism, and shrewd self-awareness. Nothing less from hip-hop’s creative top dogs of late.
Stalley premieres his video for “Cup Inside A Cup” off the Honest Cowboy EP with Belly-style visuals. This subtle beat knocks and the lyrics don’t hurt it too much. MMG’s 6th Man might have something on his hands.
