  • Lost - Danny Brown
    This past weekend, some of your Stereogum correspondents got to see Danny Brown put on a frantic live show and show off a very nice new haircut at the Pitchfork Music Festival. And this morning, he’s shared an intense new video for “Lost,” one of the tracks from last year’s ferocious Atrocity Exhibition. Director Matilda Finn’s clip takes place in a drug-house apartme...
  • Issues - Meek Mill
    Meek Mill confirmed that his new album, Wins And Losses, will be out next week. The rapper shared lead single “Issues” along with a video. In the clip, Meek Mill whips around Miami’s luxurious private islands on a jet ski....
  • BAM - Jay-Z
    Last month, JAY-Z released his new album, 4:44, and we’ve gotten a couple of videos for tracks from it since then, from the animated satire of “The Story Of O.J.” to the collage-style one for the title track. Today, he’s unveiled another one for “Bam” that features Damian Marley. It’s part music video, part behind-the-scenes look at how the song was made, following Ja...
  • Rage - Vic Mensa
    Extreme turbulence and a literal crash landing in this unexpected video for Vic Mensa's unguarded new song. Andrew Donoho, director "Rage stood out as one of the most powerful, personal, and intense songs Vic has released, and I wanted to create something equally visceral. The song stemmed from his mindset during a fight with depression and addiction, so a plane crash...
  • 4:44 - Jay-Z
    Not a music video, nor a documentary, but more of an art piece that dips through the subconscious (aka the internet?) with dreamy dance sequences, viral vids, archival films, some interview interstitials, but most emotionally, Jay-Z and Beyonce lost in each other as they do their thing on-stage. A week ago, JAY-Z released his vulnerable, expressive new album 4:44 and ...
  • Wot U Gonna Do? - Dizzee Rascal
    Ben Drury's second video for Dizzee's new album RASKIT, follows on from stripped-back VFX-enhanced style of the first for Space. Wot U Gonna Do has Dizzee coming at you from deep inside your hard drive to deliver a warning. Suitably stark yet visually arresting, to match the Rascal's return-to-his-grime roots direction. Later this month, OG grime star Dizzee Rascal is...
  • Don't Get Captured - Run The Jewels
    Run The Jewels have been making reliably badass videos practically ever since the moment that Killer Mike and El-P decided to team up, and their new clip for the RTJ3 track “Don’t Get Captured” is a great one. The clip comes from Chris Hopewell, the animator who did Radiohead’s “Burn The Witch” video, and it features Mike and El as claymation figures who ride a spooky...
  • The Story Of O.J. - Jay-Z
    JAY Z and Mark Romanek channel the racist stereotyping of early cartoons by Disney, Fleischer and Warner Brothers for satirical purposes. And although it's brilliantly realised, it doesn't make comfortable viewing at times. Romanek and Jay Z certainly do not underestimate the intelligence of their viewers - and that takes courage. Because however ludicrous the idea, s...
  • Hose Down - Perceptionists
    Way the hell back in 2005, the veteran Boston underground rappers Mr. Lif and Akrobatik, working together as the Perceptionists, released a really great and underappreciated album called Black Dialogue. They broke up soon after, but now they’ve reunited, and their new LP Resolution is coming out next month. We posted first single “Hose Down,” and now they’ve made a vi...
  • The Gentrification Song - Gift Of Gab
    Gift Of Gab, one half of rap duo Blackalicious, brings forth his straightforward lyrical stylings in his latest music video for “The Gentrification Song” off his recently released EP, Rejoice! Rappers Are Rapping Again. He tells it exactly as it is over a montage of black and white buildings and tent cities, detailing businesses closing as they fly by on screen and re...
  • Pretty Bull - Wiki
    The New York underground-rap urchin and former Ratking member Wiki teamed up with Your Old Droog for the What Happened To Fire? EP earlier this year, and he also dropped the solo single and video “Icarus.” And now he’s followed that one up with another new song and video. This one is for a scraggly, anthemic bop called “Pretty Bull.” And its video, from director Ben S...
  • Andrea - Freddie Gibbs
    Earlier this year, Freddie Gibbs released a new album, You Only Live 2wice — his first since being aquitted of sexual assault charges in Austria — and today he’s shared a video for a song from it, “Andrea.” It’s mostly made up of stylish footage of Gibbs driving around in a car through the mountains towards an alarming fire, but it ends with Gibbs alone in a jail cell...
  • Drift - Towkio
    Towkio – “Drift” — get it? The Chicago rapper is back with a Fast And The Furious-repping single and a car-centric video to match. Todd Burr and Towkio himself directed the clip, which features abundant donuts, surprising choreography, and some breathtaking overhead shots among the pyramids in Mexico City. The song is our first taste of Towkio’s major-label debut albu...
