Shitty rapper turned EDM sensation Waka Flocka is an entertainer in the true sense. Without having any real talents, his hilarious persona, image, and energy have carried him to super stardom. His most recent endeavor is this commercial for Pine Brothers Cough Drops. We aren’t sure how Waka managed to keep a straight face here, because this is funny as hell. And yes, this is a real advertisement. Never smoke a blunt again without Pine Brothers, straight up!
G-Eazy is becoming one of our favorites from the generation of “College Rappers” that includes Chris Webby, Mac Miller, Asher Roth and others. Eazy is back with his new single “Achievement.” Produced by Christoff Anderson. The beat is pretty much an updated rip off of East Flatbush Project feat. Des – “Tried by 12,” (also re-popularized in the Shady 2.0 Cypher a few years back) but its dope enough, and the real highlight is Eazy’s bars. Throughout the track he effortlessly delivers some of the stronger punch lines we’ve heard in a minute. If you don’t already know about G-Eazy, you will soon!
Trap heavyweight RL Grime dropped this new heater off his debut album Void featuring G.O.O.D. Music’s Big Sean, who is also on top of his game right now. The track is dope. The chorus is a little abrasive but catchy none the less, and the verses go hard. RL did his part too providing a grimey trap beat with heavy street appeal.These EDM x hip hop collabs are becoming more and more common, but this might be our favorite since A$AP Rocky and Skrillex dropped “Wild for the Night.”
Check out this new posse cut from the Shady Records camp, “Psychopath Killer.” The track includes the entire roster including Yelawolf, Slaughterhouse, and of course Eminem himself. The slightly creepy track is produced by an unlikely dream team consisting of Just Blaze, Boi-1da and the Maven Boys. The track pretty much what you would expect from the Shady Roster: a dope beat, insane rhyme patterns, a few celebrity name drops, and plenty of shock value.
Cartoon network’s Adult Swim has long been a proponent of dope, independent hip hop. Tonight the Eric Andre Show premiers on Adult Swim, and they released footage of the closing segment, which is a treadmill rap battle between to of hip hops most relevant names, Action Bronson and Killer Mike (of Run The Jewells.) From the looks of it, these boys don’t do a whole lot of cardio on a regular basis, so you can imagine how this turns out. Enjoy!
Zedd teamed up with Absolut Vodka for the official video for his remix of Magic!’s Rude. Calling this a music video is a stretch, its more like an extended Absolut Vodka TV advertisement with Zedd’s song in the background. The video features a group of friends night at one hell of a party courtesy of Zedd and his new favorite vodka sponsor. Chock-full of vodka toasting imagery, it manages to take product placement to new heights. Regardless, we appreciate effective advertising here, and the video is definitely cool enough. In a modern music industry where music itself is all but worthless, we can’t knock Zedd’s hustle on this one.
Pusha T is back with this Kanye West produced single. The beat sounds like a track that got left off of Yeezus, but Pusha goes in, and the track is dope overall. The exclusive stream is courtesy of Funk Flex or you can pick the single up on iTunes now.
Ever wondered what it would be like to smoke weed with your grandma? Your not the only one. Cut Video managed to find three grandmas that had never tried weed, and they gave them bongs and high quality product. The results, needless to say, are hilarious. Enjoy!
