PITCHFORK: “Young Thug’s JEFFERY highlight “Wyclef Jean” has a new official music video, and it features only fleeting glimpses of Thug himself. The clip is full of text from the directors, Pomp&Clout, who outline all the ways the video’s creation allegedly went awry. Aside from one shot where Thug enjoys some Cheetos, the rapper never quite makes it to the video’s set. “On my way home, I wondered if Young Thug would’ve liked the shoot we put together for him,” reads the video’s text. Watch the video, with its tiny cars and child police officers.”
I’m pleased to see that the classic LIL WAYNE is back! Alongside Kevin Hart, aka Chocolate Droppa, I witnessed LIL WAYNE blow the Hip Hop community out of the water last night with his 2016 BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher. Check out Wayne in his natural state as a dope MC. He uses a few lines from his “Where Ya At” song off his No Ceilings 2 mixtape with DJ Drama doing the duties on the console. The beat is provided by none other than Metro Boomin.’
“Rollin” is by far one of the hardest tracks from LIL WAYNE off of his “Sorry For The Wait” mixtape. The beat is beyond sick and Wayne’s flow sounds like one that he shot from the top of his head. He was just freestyling and wildin’ out and showing the world how much he loves Hip Hop. No autotunes, just Wayne with a rough & rugged MC voice. GUNPLAY from Maybach Music Group made the original version of “Rollin”. But Lil Wayne’s take on it sounds better to me.
A strip-club inspired video for a strip-club song. “Throw Sum Mo” is laced with autotune which is my biggest pet peeve in Hip Hop, but this song is bumping. Mike WiLL Made-It, Migos, and Birdman all make cameo appearances at the ‘roller-rink’. Rae Sremmurd’s (the duo of Swae Lee and Slim Jimmy ) new album, “SremmLife” is available now.
This post is for all of you RICK ROSS fans. “Thug Cry” is off of Ross’ “Mastermind” album and directed by Dre Films. Pitchfork magazine writes, “The clip has Wood’s character reflecting on his darkest hour. Then, Ross hands him the keys to a new car while his friends christen said car with champagne. It’s enough to make a thug cry tears of joy.”
Any way you slice it, CHRIS BROWN’s ‘Loyal’ is hot! The choreography is on point and the video also includes cameos from Trey Songz and Ty Dolla $ign, and Usher. “Loyal” is off Brown’s upcoming album X, which features guest spots from Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar, and a duet with Adriana Grande. The new album is set to be released on May 5th.
Drake did an impressive job as host on Saturday Night Live and his Katt Williams’ impression was dead-on. Take a look at the video.
NICKI MINAJ ft. Rick Ross – “I Am Your Leader” & Nicki ft. B.O.B “Out Of My Mind” (2 NewMusic Videos!)
“I Am Your Leader” & “Out Of My Mind” is off of Nicki Minaj’s sophomore album, “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded”. She released both videos today making it a true ‘Pink Friday’.
DJ Khaled – “Take It To The Head” Ft. Chris Brown, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj & Lil Wayne – (Official Video) Dirty
I remember when DJ KHALED was out here DJ’ing in the clubs on South Beach and running the underground radio station, Mix 96fm Miami. He’s been hustling for a long time, (remember his small cameo appearance in the cult film, Shottas?) and I must say, he has came a long way.
A couple of things about the video I noticed… Khaled and Rick Ross now look alike, beard & weight, both have the same style. 2nd, there are no sistas in the video. When will these rappers start acknowledging black women and employing them in starring roles? Chris Brown killed it! Wondering how this is Khaled’s song and not his. But in spite of all of that, Khaled’s “Take It To The Head” is as dope as all the other songs he’s produced.
Lil Wayne got on the mic and shouted out that he still loves rapper Trina at Club LIV in Miami 5/13/12. I usually don’t get into artist’s personal lives on this site, but I’m posting this because Trina is one of our Miami’s own and we just wanna make sure that she ends up with the right person and is represented well. I think Trina and Lil Wayne would make a good couple…Trina would be good for his ‘gangsta’ image. Lil Wayne To Trina: “I Still Love You & I Miss You Baby!” Could it all be for publicity? Will these two rekindle their old relationship? Check out the video and see for yourself…
