Ty Dolla $ign's single "Blasé" now has a video. The song, which features Future and Rae Sremmurd, has been out for quite some time. But now it's gotten a VHS-quality visual treatment. It's blurry and grainy and totally cool, just like how it was in the 90s! The clip, which was reportedly shot on tour, features cameos from Tinashe and Dej Loaf. (Sadly, Future Hendrix does not appear in the clip.) Check out the video for "Blasé" after the jump.
Young Thug is one of rap's most polarizing figures -- you either love him or you hate him. But either way you cut it, it doesn't matter to Thug. This 23-year-old Atlanta rapper has love for himself, and it's evermore evident in the visuals for his latest song, "Best Friend," which finds Thug hanging out hooking up with his himself, being his own driver, and uhh, meal, too. Craziness. Frankly, if you've been paying attention you'd know Thug has yet to disappoint (musically, speaking) and it appears as though his forthcoming mixtape with London on da Track, Slime Season, won't either. Check out the visuals for Young Thug's "Best Friend" after the jump.
A lot of rare Kanye West stuff is being unearthed as of late. First we have a Kendrick Lamar remix of "All Day" and now we're being treated to a sneak peek of 'Ye's verse on Vic Mensa's "U Mad" track. This track has been circulating for the last month or so, mostly byway of Vic Mensa's live performances. But now we have Kanye's full verse! You can check it out after the jump. As the kids say: it's hard.
