Not often these days something really new and different comes around in rap. I think Alpoko Don fits that bill. He isn’t breaking the mold, he is essentially a southern trap rapper, but he does it unlike anyone before him. This track features a stripped down beat (paying homage to his Youtube viral vids where [...]
First time checking out Joey Bada$$, and pleasantly surprised. His name made me avoid him, but this video proves I shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover, or in this case…name. This is definitely throwback rap. Clearly it is meant to evoke a feeling from the 90′s. From the beat to the way the video [...]
I posted this song already, but Nas followed it up with a great video to match, so wanted to share it as well.
When I saw the still for this video, I was instantly on my guard. White, ginger teenage girl rapping…my spidey sense was tingling. Danger. But, I gave her a chance. After all I actually liked Gucci Gucci by Kreayshawn, so who am I to judge? Pleasantly surprised. The beat was a laid back spacey beat [...]
ASAP back with the lead single to his upcoming release. Goldie is classic ASAP – screwed hook, dope beat and him flowing his ass off. I think this is a great song choice for his first single, and the video is great. I know the video doesn’t really break new ground but stylistically it just [...]
Kardinal! Gotta always show love to Toronto’s own. This is a great track, that actually reminds me of Kardinal’s older work – the beat kind of has that old Circle sound from Eye & I Days. Liking this track a lot – and simple but great video.
I haven’t been checking Odd Future out too much lately, and I didn’t love the recent mixtape but this track is definitely a stand out for me. The video really caught my attention as well. The track and video have a real throwback feel to them – feels like a classic Posse cut from back [...]
I don’t usually post my fav videos of the year back to back, but it so happens that another great video dropped today. Big KRIT drops a video for Boobie Miles off his recent mixtape: 4eva N a Day. This song has grown on me, at first I found it a bit too laid back [...]
Rittz is that dude! I am feeling this guy – I think he fits into the same vein as Yelawolf – I wouldn’t compare them but they are both southern white guys. Rittz isn’t as experimental with his flow, but it is still great – rapid fire. I have been thinking for awhile that a [...]
Time for my guilty pleasure….the fucking radio KILLA! The Dream drops a video to ROC, the single he released earlier. Just aural and visual bliss really. I know it isn’t rap – but Im including it as one of my fav videos anyways.
