  • Stick To Your Guns - Watsky
    I wonder if Carlos Lopez Estrada ever imagined his career would include a 'Sheep Choreography' credit. I'm sure within his eclectic repertoire and his increasingly far-reaching collaborations with Watsky he must be aware now that anything is possible. Set in a cartoonish dreamscape inside a kid's head, Watsky plays the shepherd of the sheep the young boy must have bee...
  • Wyclef Jean - Young Thug
    Thugger released the video for the introductory track of last year’s Jeffery project, “Wyclef Jean,” and it’s a perfect example of Thug being in on the joke. Not only that, it’s f**king brilliant. You know how we often have notes from the director about how they made the video, under this bit? Well, Ryan Staake had a better idea: putting his Director's Notes actually ...
  • In The Mud - deM atlaS
    'In the Mud' centers around a time in my life where I felt complacent and in a daze not knowing exactly where I should be spending my time. Too often, I found myself waking up late, hungover and laying next to a woman I barely knew knowing that I had other shit to do. This kept happening, and like any habit or addiction that's nurtured, it became comfortable. So, the ...
  • T-Shirt - Migos
    The camera pans out over a stark, unforgiving landscape, riding high above a snow-covered mountain ridge blanketed with evergreens. Three weary travelers appear, draped in enough fur to make a PETA supporter break down into tears. An imposing bearded figure and likely Game of Thrones extra breathes life into a fire—the only respite you’ll find amidst the dreary wilder...
  • Womanogamy - Ab-Soul
    Not that it really matters, but I want it to be known that it bums me out on multiple levels to write this piece, even if it was completely my idea. While watching Ab’s latest video for “Womanogamy,” I was overcome with frustration and disappointment at what seemed like a complete lack of effort in creating a captivating visual, especially after the utter garbage fire...
  • The Sorrow - Slyce
    SLYC3 aka Rahmad Hawkins Rahmad Jemiah Hawkins—was born November 13, 1990 in Buffalo, New York, to a talented musical family.

  • Holla Then - Chinx Drugz
    It's been almost two years since the tragic shooting death of Lionel Pickens, aka Coke Boys rapper Chinx Drugz. The artist's label released a posthumous project last year titled Legend Never Die. Today we received another posthumous release from the artist's camp by way of the "Holla Then" video. This track is a serious banger and the visuals reflect that as we see Ch...
  • Things - Oddisee
    Oddisee’s altruistic insights and sharp wit are just a fraction of the man’s talents, but over the last few projects, those traits have shone brightly over his own soulful production. The uptempo track finds Oddisee pondering his own tribulations in life and understanding that success will only bring more of those with the kind of cosmic awareness that reminds us all ...
  • Fallen - Jaden Smith
    I’ve been a Will Smith fan for years, with a deep enthusiasm for The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Independence Day and Men In Black, and also for Smith’s debut solo album Big Willie Style. I still have fond memories of my cousins and I—to our parents’ protest—rapping along to “Miami” and “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It.” With the joy I found from Smith’s career, I thought I would f...
  • Legend Has It - Run The Jewels
    Throughout the last several years, Run The Jewels have become more than just a musical group. For many of their fans—myself included—they’ve also taken on the role of satirical philosophers, helping to fill the gap that visionaries like George Carlin and Gil Scott-Heron left in their passing. “Legend Has It” finds Jaime and Mikey co-opting the Migos/Future-esque flow ...
  • The Isle Of Arran - Loyle Carner
    Loyle Carner's new video The Isle Or Arran directed by Georgia Hudson focuses on the relationship fathers have with their children. It sees the South Londoner taking a stroll around a surreal hospital ward, ending up with a group of young fathers with their babies. Loyle says: "I just wanted to celebrate the [fathers] who are doing right and sticking around, because t...
  • Climb It, Change - Nickname
    With all the recent division in our country I decided to make a video to help bring us together and remind us whats important. I compiled a bunch of footage from the Public Domain and put it to my new song "CLIMB IT, CHANGE". N.I.C.K.N.A.M.E. When my beats bang, pens drain empty. Then I speak flames, and bake emcees. Check my steez mane, heads way heavy. Def like deep...
  • Redbone - Childish Gambino
    So many fans of Culdesac are going to be pissed off by this song, and I love it. I think we’re eventually going to look back on 2016 as the year Donald Glover fully realized his incredible artistic potential. Even that almost seems disingenuous considering everything he’s accomplished thus far, but there’s no doubting this has been an absolute banner year for Glover s...
