Back in June, Vic Mensa released The Manuscript, a teaser EP of sorts for his debut album, The Autobiography, which would follow a month later. Three of the EP’s four tracks made it onto the album, though two were relegated to bonus track status.
On Snoop Dogg’s latest album the song ‘Neva Left’, got an animated video that’s something like The Boondocks meets Scarface. The song itself perfectly fits this retro vibe, as it samples The Charmels’ “As Long as I’ve Got You,” which is most recognizable as the backbone of the Wu-Tang Clan’s “C.R.E.A.M.”
Skrillex’s frequent video director Jas Davis has just shared a next level new video… and recruited none other than Skrillex to soundtrack it. Jas is always pushing the limits with his visuals and this new upload “FRIENDLY FIRE” spanning nearly 2 minutes shows off his artistic visions and insane filming / editing skills. The trippy video is wild throughout, but so is the hip-hop styled beat Skrillex cooked up for it. Check out their other recent video collaboration below and enjoy!
Dizzy Wright has been consistently dropping material lately. His latest is a new visual treatment for the track “Outrageous” featuring Big K.R.I.T., off Dizzy’s latest project TheGolden Age 2. The track is solid, (though K.R.I.T. kind of burns Dizzy on his own shit) and the video is timely and relevant in today’s climate where more and more images of police brutality and racism are surfacing every day.
Though Rick Ross has been somewhat out of the spotlight in the last year, he continues to drop consistent music in terms of output and quality. Judging from his new video “Santorini Greec,” Rozay’s been doing alright on the low. The video features gorgeous scenery and women, shot on location in one of the world’s most beautiful islands (you guessed it) Santorini, Greece. Perfect vibe to close out the summer, enjoy!
