For the third episode of H∆SHTAG$ — our web series chronicling Internet-based music — we turn our attention to the 808 drums and Enya loving, Internet-born micro-culture referred to as “Cloud Rap.” Featured artists include Main Attrakionz, Flatbush Zombies, SpaceGhostPurrp, Robb Banks and London’s Piff Gang.
Remy Banks and Bodega Bamz hits the streets of LA for their new Luke Monaghan directed video, “GLDCHN”. The video tells the tragic tale of Greg Wilcockson, an oversized white male who is addicted to rap music. Doesn’t get any better than that….except this video.
Here is The Weeknd delivering some new visuals off his Triology album that dropped last year. He also sent out a tweet recently saying that if you thought his old shit knocked, wait til you hear his new music.
Juelz Santana gives his Wale assisted track the visual treatment off his recently released God Will’n mixtape. Juelz isn’t slowing down anytime soon because he’s got a new mixtape in the works already and should be dropping sooner than you think.
Here’s some new footage of two of my favorite upcoming Chicago artists who were recently in the studio together working on some new music. It’s going to be tight as fuck to hear what they got cooking up for the final product. Anyway, Chance’s Acid Rap coming later this year.
Pro Era’s front runner Joey Bada$$ headed over to Hot 97 last night and kicked a couple freestyles for Funkmaster Flex. As always, young Bada$$ completely kills it with his heavy bars over a Mobb Deep beat, a Nas beat and a Capone-N-Noreaga beat. 2013 is going to be a big year for the Pro Era collective and hopefully the spring tour that Joey announced on Twitter a couple weeks ago decides to make a stop in South Florida. You can watch the 3 part freestyle after the jump. (more…)
After letting loose the track a couple weeks ago, the South Florida artist is back with the official visuals to go along with it. Vurn is one of my favorite artists coming out of South Florida and to see how much his name has popped up on the site in the past couple of weeks gets me pretty excited for what else he has in store for this year. Doobies to The 305 for the premier!
On the red carpet last night for the Grammys before he grabbed the award for ‘Best Rap Album of the Year’, Drake announced the title of his new album will be called Nothing Was The Same. He also stated that the album is set to drop this summer. He also dropped the video for his new single, “Started From The Bottom“, last night so make sure you check that out.
