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.
Nicely woven tale of the drug game from two vastly different viewpoints. Pusha’s — well — pushing. And K. Dot is observing the substances erode and rule his family at once.

Pharrell getting funky at the disco.
If this song is any indication of the tone of Drake’s Nothing Was The Same, sh*t’s about to get even more deep and uncomfortable. Drake’s best work is his most squirming, awkward struggle with fame set to the rhythm of an increasingly confident flow. A personal letter to his mother and uncle? That’s just the start.
Lupe Fiasco making sharp commentary on the influence of “paper” on the rap greats. In a way, this is a less explicit “letter” to hip-hop legends than Kanye’s “Big Brother” or J. Cole’s “I Let Nas Down.” Greatest rapper alive or greatest rapper to die? The greatest rapper’s a lie. Rhymes after the jump. (more…)
