N’Cho Grace is back with a brand new song and video called “Brothers Gone,” released in honor of Black History Month. The rising femcee uses her unique flow and cadence to deliver important social commentary over a refreshing, upbeat instrumental.
Washington D.C. based crew The Legendary Cloud 9 is known for their critically acclaimed Alternative Rock project entitled the “War EP”. They are now set to drop a Hip-Hop EP entitled “The Philosophy.” Lead singer “TK” drops some dope, thought provoking bars over a great multi-genre spanning beat, and the video is equally dope. We’re looking forward to hearing more from this crew in the near future!
Cannabis enthusiast and hippie rapper Mod Sun teamed up with the infamous Travis Barker for this genre straddling smoker’s anthem. The track features has a very pop/punk sounding chorus nicely paired with Mod Sun’s easily digestible and fun verses. The video, directed by Mod himself is creative and resourceful as always, and the story is funny and all too real. As lifestyle smokers, we support the message here: never quit. Check out the video below, and catch Mod Sun on headlining the Look Up Tour this spring in a city near you!

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.
Los Angeles veterans Dilated Peoples released the visuals to their lead single “Show Me Th Way” Featuring Aloe Blacc. The video is refreshingly simple and minimal, but its clever enough. The well thought out symbolism in the video makes up for whatever is lacking in the budget department. Great track, good video. Definitely worth watching a few times!
Up and coming Florida artist Villz caught our attention with his single, “4:20 AM.” This tripped out, dream like record blends synths and organic sounds with Villz’s melancholy voice to create a unique future-soul vibe. The colorful video is equally dream like and compliments the song well. Check it out, and look forward to seeing more from Villz soon.
