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…)

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.
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…)
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.
I don’t know what’s better about this episode of “Over/Under”: that A$AP Ferg wasn’t aware that Jim Carrey had already played the Joker when he suggested it would be a breakout role OR that he burnt both of his feet playing frisbee on hot coals. He’s got a future in this if Jim Jones is any example of unintentionally hilarious Harlem rappers. Check the review of Ferg’s Trap Lord.
Drake continues the release day festivities by dropping the official video for his hit single, “Hold On We’re Going Home,” starring A$AP Rocky and Fredo Santana. Directed by Bill Pope. (more…)
Fittingly, them Migos cats hit LA’s Chinatown for the visual of the same name off their YRN tape. Directed by Gabriel Hart. Still a top-10 hook of this year.
Drake talks to Ryan Seacrest about his ascendant fame, the album for the current generation, and living up to his own expectations. Plus, what separates him from other rappers…like reading the feedback on NWTS on social media and the internet.
The second single from A3C Volume 3 comes from Los Angeles artist, Azizi Gibson. ”Band of the Hawk” is a spaced out video fitting of the track from the buzzing Brainfeeder artist. (more…)
Le Grand Journal du 23/09/13 – La Suite avec Kanye West A nationally renowned French talk show? Yea, why not. Kanye is making his Euro tour count with unique stops at places like this one. First sit through an interview with a Buddhist French author on the path to enlightenment. Then, listen to Kanye rap about Black Skinheads (starts at ~13:15 mark), strange fruit and other very American things. (I wonder what the Dalai Lama would think about “Bound 2″?)
The Cult of Earl is in full force, with kids wearing lippy masks in tribute to the young rhyming phenom. Something about this corny video almost diminishes the album it’s meant to advertise but not much could do that, ultimately. The reaction to Frank Ocean here, though, shows just how much icon-making is happening in the mills of Odd Futurism.
