Alpoko Don – Get my Paypa Dog

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 [...]

Joey Bada$$ feat. Cj Fly – Hardknock

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 [...]

Nas – Daughters [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

I posted this song already, but Nas followed it up with a great video to match, so wanted to share it as well.

Kitty Pryde – Okay Cupid [Official Video]

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 Rocky – Goldie [Explicit Video]

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 – Kill Shot

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.

Odd Future – Oldie [Official 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 [...]

Big KRIT – Boobie Miles

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 – Die

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 [...]

The Dream – ROC [Official Video]

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.
