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.

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.

Mr. MFN eXquire has the longest name in rap, is a gentleman’s ODB, and his project Kismet has already revealed some gully tracks for mass consumption. This is his duet with Chance, he of the big buzz. It also has the longest name of a rap song.
CJ Fly follows up “Sadderdaze” — one of our favorites from last week — with a Joey assist. This is smoother and a hint toward the overall feel of his tape Thee Way Eye See It. Get your Sunday listen on. Hat tip to HipHopEarly.com.

Ka, also known as Brownsville Ka, is something like the Elmore Leonard or Hubert Selby of rap music. He brings life and vitality to street tales sometimes untold, or too simplified otherwise. This video, from his latest project Night’s Gambit drags you through a ghetto and makes it like home.
