Video: Starlito & Don Trip – “Paper, Rock, Scissors”

We like to have fun with Hov and his legacy because the truth of the matter is, he’s a Rap Gaaawd in the flesh. This documentary gives a fuller view of twilight Jay Z. Ron Howard directs. View the full stream after the jump. (more…)

New Music: Eminem – “Rap God”

This is Eminem carving his face on rap’s Mt. Olympus. This is Eminem striking down mortals with the hand of a lyrical super-being. This is Eminem on a quirky beat, twerking flows and generally proving that rhythm has no race and no confines. He still comes down to bless us occasionally. Off MMLP2.

Video: Green Street – “New Beginnings”

Good, clean, inspirational hip-hop music. This is the kind of song borne from the struggles of a group almost disbanded due to life-threatening illnesses, real spit. Green Street returns with “New Beginnings,” now available on iTunes for download.

Video: Iamsu! – “Hipster Girls”

Heart just skipped three beats. Hipster Girls get at me.

Video: Devin the Dude – “Probably Should Have”

I don’t know that there can be an heir to Nate Dogg, but Devin the Dude is close. He has much more fun with his relationship songs, as seen here. We all know one we “probably should have” filled in the blank with.

Video: Earl Sweatshirt – The Green Box Freestyle

Earl can do this in any location, on any tour stop, for any camera crew. Let the poetry flow, bruh. Profanity and all.

Video: Kanye West Interview With Jimmy Kimmel

Two weeks following his well-publicized Twitter beef with Jimmy Kimmel, Kanye stops by the late night personality’s show to bury the hatchet. And rant some more. It’s not safe for you in this zoo. (more…)

Video: 2Chainz Live Performance At 1Extra Live BBC 2013

For one of the most interesting Feature Rappers of the last five years, the crowd is unusually tame about Chainz’s cameo spots. That may be the risk of riding other songs but having a limited popular catalog of his own. He relies on hot songs to be present among the fans, so when those songs cool, his impression does too. Luckily, people always love strippers. Click the video for his full 26 minute set.

Video: Wale – “Simple Man”

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. This slick Toronto short says all about how he’s quietly positioned himself as one of this year’s chart toppers without going the conflict route. Respect.

Video: Quelle Chris – “Super F*ck”

Quelle Chris makes dynamic and colorful music that he then raps to. The video for “Super F*ck” shows his style in an animated guide to the Best Workout Plan.

Video: Eminem — “Survival”

Eminem raps against Call of Duty on a projection screen in a more than fitting video for his “Survival” single with Lisa Rodrigues. This is actually exactly what Em stans do when they play this song in their mom’s basement. (more…)

Video: Danny Brown – “Dope Song”

Mr. Brown is making the entire music world pay attention to him and this album with the starkness of the Detroit drug culture. He doesn’t just celebrate it, or glorify it, he cautions against its effects and battles with its outcomes. Video courtesy Complex TV after the jump. (more…)
