PUSHA T ft. Future – “Pain” (Music Video) !! New Music!

I haven’t listened to the Pusha T’s entire “My Name Is My Name” album yet, but I heard that he has a lot of features on his new joint.

LAURYN HILL – “Consumerism ” (New Music) !!

LAURYN HILL has always been a political rapper whose music carried strong social messages and ‘Consumerism’ is no different. Hill throws a focus on “ism” through her powerful lyricism on this track, a beat that is reminiscent of that ‘Fugee’ flow from back in the day.

Hill’s voice is animated as she speaks on skepticism, modernism, hedonism, fascism, hypnotism, secularism, ageism, sexism, egotism, etc. That passion we all know her for is heightened in her new song off of her upcoming “Letters From Exile” project, as she raps ‘through a heady list of societal woes’.

This video, however, focuses on the caricatures of black twitter, shedding the light on the day-to-day dialogue from some of the typical characters you may see. Producer, Issa Rae, came up with the genius idea that seems to be pretty accurate (and funny!). Check it out …
