After sharing the official remix with J. Cole yesterday, Janet Jackson returns today with the video for the song. In a dimly-lit mansion on a rainy day, the video features Jackson performing the song throughout the house. Somewhere down the line J. Cole finds himself duplicated and replicated — all while rapping his verse. Check out the video after the jump.

Future can’t be stopped. You could say he has his eyes set on the future (ba dum tsss!) But seriously, he’s been killing it (as you know) and now he’ll be dropping a new album later this week with Dirty Sprite 2. Fewtch recently shared the visuals for “Blow a Bag,” a track which will appear on the forthcoming album. In the video Fewtch lives a lavish lifestyle, flossing in his mansion, with a hot chick on his arm and throws around a couple of racks, too. But for some reason a dark undertone exists and it’s very much palpable. Check out Future’s “Blow a Bag” visuals after the jump.

So this happened. Drake has released the first video for a single from his If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late album. And it’s no surprise that the song is “Energy,” a track when put on people instantly sing along. But the video is a tad bit, well, strange? Don’t get me wrong, I love when hip hop keeps it weird and funky. But I don’t what it is about the video for “Energy” that is really cringeworthy. Is it Drake strutting around in front of a white background? Is it all these random shots of equally random people? Or is it perhaps Drake being CGI’ed as Oprah, Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, and even Barack Obama? Nothing wrong with drag or impersonations but these are just so poorly done and are genuinely freaking me out. Pitchfork called the video “unbelievable” and I pray they’re referring to how absurd it is. Anyway, you be the judge. Check out Drake’s “Energy” video after the jump.

Earlier this year iHipHop was proud to release the highly-anticipated, long-delayed sophomore album from Cannibal Ox, entitled Blade of the Ronin. Now we are proud to share the visuals for “Harlem Knights” off the aforementioned album. “Harlem Knights” was shot on-site in Harlem and follows Vast Aire and Vordul Mega through the desolate uptown streets where they were raised. The release of this video marks the first official visual representation of Cannibal Ox since the release of “Painkillers” from Cannibal Ox’s critically acclaimed 2001 debut, The Cold Vein. Check out “Harlem Knights” after the jump.

Apparently Waka Flocka Flame released a song out with Good Charlotte. In case you don’t know who Good Charlotte is, they’re a pop-punk band from the early 2000s. They had songs like “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” go gold in 2002 – further revealing my old age. They’ve pretty much been on hiatus since 2011 and haven’t recorded a new album since 2010. How do I know this? Because I’ve used my Googles. Anyway, this song is for that new Pixels film coming out later this month. Now, the tandem of Waka Flocka, a rapper who is basically losing more and more of his street cred as I type this thing out, and a seemingly irrelevant early 2000s pop group have record a music video for this “Game On” track. Honestly, when I heard this track back last month I was baffled but now, hearing it over again — along with an equally nauseating video — I’m convinced this is the worst thing to happen to rap in 2015 thus far. But you be the judge. Check out “Game On” after the jump.

I can easily pick up on a fake/fair-weather fan. I suppose Young Thug’s fans are a good example of this as the 22-year-old Atlanta rapper continues to gain more and more traction as time goes by. Many of his so-called “fans” are quite disappointed that the emcee didn’t drop his highly-anticipated Slime Season mixtape on July 4th, as initially promised. But, really? He just dropped Barter 6 a few months ago — a project I am still enjoying immensely. But alas, Thug wasn’t just gonna keep you parched, as he drops the visuals for his Barter 6 cut, “With That.” Needless to say it’s a trip. Check it out after the jump.
