Following the release of the Flying Lotus produced audio earlier this week, MTV got the green light to premier the official visuals for the first single off Mac Miller’s upcoming sophomore album, Watching Movies With The Sound Off. As I said before, this song is interesting because you can hear the growth in Mac’s music since his first album and it’s going to cool to hear what else he has to offer. The album is set to drop later this year.
I know you got excited when you saw Styles P and ‘Lean’, but unfortuntely, this is the not ‘Lean’ with Spitta off The 1st 28. After dropping the behind-the-scenes for this track, Styles P unleashed the final product this morning for this loose track that did not appear on his recently released album Float with Scram Jones. Roll up and watch Styles P chill with some chicks at a hookah lounge in the new visuals above.
Boy Sand has provided the first visual effort from his recent release Kool Herc: Fertile Crescent on Stones Throw Records. ”Peace & Love” is a standout track on a standout record produced entirely by El RTNC. In this minimalist and trippy video directed by Chris Antonelli, Boy Sand and 3 acquaintances are transported between various New York City backdrops as a loose narrative of love and separation reinforces the reflective message behind Homeboy’s bars. Lines like “Geniuses, Nefertiti and Tut, that’s what we were once, that was we and us” and “it’s no wonder why we in ruts, seems we be in a rush just for being tough, and rather would keep it tucked than keep in touch” are just the surface of the infinite depth behind his lyricism, but more importantly the poetic structure of stacking the short verses incrementally, repeating and adding another as the song progresses, is as unorthodox as it is genius. It appears Boy Sand is aware of the amount of replays it takes for fans to catch every reference in his complex wordplay, but by the last verse run through during “Peace and Love” the full extent of the cohesive thought process is realized. No one else is doing hip-hop like this, and that is why this gets the post. If you want to get inside the mind of Homeboy Sandman, check out our recent exclusive interview with the Queens emcee: Part 1 | Part 2.
A$AP Ferg might not be the most lyrical rapper coming up in the game right now (but who is these days) and I rarely play this song whenever I listen to the A$AP Mob compilation mixtape Lord$ Never Worry, but truth be told, his videos are always tight. He directed this video himself along with Thuan Tran. Crazy how he built this crazy buzz for himself with “Work” and still has yet to drop a full length solo project. Definitely looking forward to hearing that Trap Lord when it drops in the very near future, word to Ferg.
Logic gives TSIS the exclusive premier of the first set of visuals off his upcoming Welcome To Forever mixtape. As always, Logic displays his lyrical ability with his unique flow and insane wordplay on this new track titled “Nasty” which is produced by none other than DJ Don Cannon. The warm up to his Def Jam debut album, Welcome To Forever, is set to drop on May 7th.
Jet Life’s very own CornerBoy P swaps jerseys in the first set of visuals from his recentely released mixtape R.N.S., which stands for Real Nigga Shit. Roll a couple up and enjoy the CJ Wallis-directed video above.
One of Chicago’s most promising producers Thelo Martin links up with Bradley Murray to deliver this fresh new video off his recently released instrumental album, From Me To You. Read what Murray had to say about the video below. Doobies to FSD.
“Did you listen to it in the car? was the first thing Thelonius asked me before we began our video shoot for the day. “Hell yeah I listened to it in the car.” He hopped in the car and quickly plugged up his laptop to my car stereo. With one simple listen he taps the equalizer nob and starts adjusting. Usually I don’t like anyone touching my radio ESPECIALLY my levels. But this was a special occasion as he effortlessly created instrumental after instrumental while in the passenger seat. We talked about his style and his J-Dilla esque technique. The great thing about inspiration is that it births inspiration. Its like a domino effect or where you pass it on after you gather your influence’s and throw your own dirt on histories pavement.”
When it comes down to it, Ty Dolla $ign is the King of Rachet R&B, hands down. Here is some brand new visuals for the remix to his ‘My Cabana’ track that features a guest verse from Young Jeezy. The original version sans Jeezy appeared on his Beach Hou$e mixtape that dropped last year. Ty is prepping for the EP release of that same tape which this remix is expected to appear on.
Fab takes us back to The SOUL Tape 2 to deliver some brand new visuals for his smoker’s anthem, ‘We Get High’. This sample has been used so many times already but I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of hearing it. If you’re waiting for new music from Loso, his new album Loso’s Way 2 is coming on June 18th.
