Video: Vic Mensa Producing The INNANETAPE

Vic Mensa gives an inside look into the production of the INNANETAPE.

Video: Nipsey Hussle Freestyles On Sway In The Morning

Nipsey Hussle drops more gangsta knowledge jewels on the masses in this lengthy interview with Sway.

Video: ScHoolboy Q — “Banger (Moshpit)”

ScHoolboy Q releases the video for his latest single, which is anything but what the title suggests. Oxymoron has been pushed back to 2014, and may even get pushed back further if Q keeps dropping duds like these.

Video: Mack Wilds And Raekwon Perform In NYC

Is there anything that the cast alumni from “The Wire” can’t do? First, they appear in the indie comedy smash Newlyweeds (check your local theaters for info). Then, cast stand-out Tristan Wilds a.k.a. Mack Wilds has a hit with “Own It” trotting all over the charts. Here, he performs an album cut “U Can Cry To Me,” which features Staten Island cohort Raekwon. Is The Chef on everything right now or what? He’s on his ’05 Ghostface sh*t.

Video: Tanya Morgan – “Eulogy”

Off Rubber Souls, this video knocks as does the beat, produced by 6th Sense. Sleeper album of the fall so far.

Mr. MFN eXquire – “Cherry Raindrops”

This that late-night Williamsburg bridge, underneath the J line, stopping at the Dominican buffet groove. eXquire tells a love story in five minutes, the exact way to do it.

Video: A$AP Rocky, Kosha Dillz And Matisyahu Improv Freestyle Cypher

Impromptu freestyle session breaks out with A$AP Rocky rapping alongside Kosha Dillz and Matisyahu on the beatbox. Never underestimate this art form.

New Music: Joey Bada$$ – “My Yout” (Remix) feat. Maverick Sabre

Joey Bad offers this bonus cut “My Yout” from his soon-to-drop Summer Knights EP. It sounds like he’s had Distant Relatives and The Best Of Stephen Marley playing on repeat in the headphones. Not bad and certainly a step out of the boom-bap area where he got cozy for a while. Nice to hear the Pro Era leader going for uptempo rhythms.

Video: Lil Herb — “Control Me”

Lil Herb hangs on the block and drops a new clip for “Control Me,” directed by HiDef. Herb’s Welcome To Fazoland: The Movie project is on the way.

Video: Killer Mike & El-P — “Get It”

Killer Mike and El-P drop a visual for “Get It,” one of the strongest tracks off their Run The Jewels project. The video contains a bunch of footage from the duo’s North American tour.

Video: Childish Gambino Interviews

Because The Internet, Childish Gambino’s upcoming album, seems like a nod to the minute-rice, 2 fast 2 furious commenting nature of the web today. The former television actor and comedian turned dedicated emcee is doing his best to ingratiate himself to the rap world, while accepting that it may never take to him (or his sense of hipster irony) as much as he might like. All the same, the work is there. Check out his interview with Power 105′s Breakfast Club after the jump. (more…)

Video: Diddy Talks Revolt Network On Jimmy Kimmel

I thought I told you that he won’t stop. The Human Billboard is doing what he does best: promoting. Diddy stopped by that late night talk show’s couch to explain what the new network Revolt TV will focus on at launch. Parts 2 and 3 after the jump. Hat tip to Karen Civil. (more…)

Video: PARTYNEXTDOOR — “Break From Toronto”

OVO’s PARTYNEXTDOOR drops the visual for ”Break From Toronto,” one of the standout cuts from his self-titled debut project. The track samples Miguel’s “Girl With The Tattoo.” Directed by Liam MaCrae.

Video: Nicki Minaj Guests On Queen Latifah’s Show

These two have great comic timing together. I see movies in Nicki’s future if she can improvise and do accents this well.

Video: Raekwon & Ghostface On FSN’s “Crowd Goes Wild”

Rae and Ghost are leading the Wu Tang resurgence, and even though Regis Philbin pronounces the name ‘Kae-ron’ in an early blooper, this kind of look will last more than he knows. Plus, I couldn’t think of a better nickname for Regis than “The New ODB.”
