Introducing .... Rising Oakland, CA Hip-Hop artist BEEDA WEEDA & his new visual release “Revolution”. With support coming from Bay Area legends including Too $hort, E-40, & Tajai from the legendary Hip-Hop group, The Hieroglyphics, Beeda is aiming to take action against the many social injustices taking place in America.
"BJ The Chicago Kid unveiled the clip for "Nothin' But Love" today. The beat, with its twinkly keys and easy drums, evokes the '90s hip-hop that the guest MC Joey Bada$$ holds dear. Though the mixtape version of the song featured Hannibal Buress, he doesn't appear in the video. Look for BJ's album In My Mind early in 2016." - TheFader
"Future gets extra dirty for this week’s edition of #DirtyThursday. In the video for “Dirty $ex” off DS2, the FreeBand Gang leader engages in an intimate relationship with Blac Chyna. While he may have denied that they’re dating, the video proves that they definitely have chemistry. The on-screen couple doesn’t shy away from PDA during the four-minute makeout session. They kiss, hold hands, and roll in the sheets at Future’s Miami crib." - Rap-Up
FreeOnSmash writes, "Eazy Season is in full effect and G-Eazy‘s next move is a music video for “You Got Me,” as he prepares the follow-up album to These Things Happen. In the new visual, the Oakland rapper does the banging Southside instrumental justice by bringing his whole crew to the streets and local strip clubs. The song was originally released in July on Apple Music, along with the track “Running.”
FreeOnSmash writes, "It’s been three months since DeJ Loaf‘s debut #AndSeeThatsTheThing EP released back in July. One of the standout records from the project was the Big Sean assisted single “Back Up.” Today, the Detroit connection is brought to life through the release of the music video for the popular single. For the video, DeJ heads to the skating rink to host a party, where plenty of fun ensues. The Detroit player unfortunately doesn’t make it to the party, but does come through to deliver his verse with DJ Mo Beatz by his side."
PUBLIC ENEMEY's new hit single, "Mine Again" delivers a powerful message and is inspirational on so many levels. NigerianSounds writes, "Legendary Hip-Hop group Public Enemy just delivered their 13th studio album in July titled, 'Man Plans, God Laughs', and today they released a video for one of the songs off the project titled 'Mine Again'. The song features James Bomb who laced it with some poignant spoken word hooks, and Chuck D, the frontman of PE dropping riveting science in the form of lyrics, check out the video which is an ode to Africa and was directed by David Snyder in the Serengeti of Southern Africa."
I only posted this because of the King of the South... T.I. I know Young Thug is featured on this track because he's 'radio hot' right now. But ditch him and add The Game? And 'Bankrolls on Deck' is a Hip Hop classic.
This song is a banger! "COFFEE, which first appeared on MIGUEL’s three-song nwa.hollywooddreams.coffee EP in late December, shaped the sound of its third studio album, Wildheart, which was released June 30th on ByStorm Entertainment/RCA Records."
I'm featuring one of my favorite new-school rappers for Music Monday... VIC MENSA. Thissongissick.com writes, "This year Vic has already collaborated with Kaytranada multiple times and with Kanye on one of the hits of the summer with “U Mad” while recently being signed by Jay Z’s Roc Nation. We previously heard a live version of his collaboration with Skrillex, “No Chill,” but now we get to hear a radio rip of the studio version, and it exactly what we were hoping for. Skrillex brings his relentless drums and wonky horns as he proves he can produce hip hop as well as he does with his other production efforts. Vic goes in on this heater spitting choppy, lyrical verses while the beat drops in & out and he adds a catchy hook that has us impatiently awaiting more info about his debut studio album, Traffic."
