@JodyHighroller @Mike_Stud @ModSun @HueyMack Having some fun in the studio in-between shots for “Nightstand” video shoot. Everyone was pretty turned up, can’t you tell?
Our homie Mod Sun released Free Love (produced by Mod Sun + Pat Brown) last month & we’re still rockin to it. Directed by Mod Sun himself, & filmed + edited by 13twentythree
The band is taking over airwaves with their summer-ready track, ‘Rude,’. It now has over 25+ million plays on YouTube. Whether or not you realize it, you are already familiar with Nasri’s, Magics front-man, work. He’s written many tracks for Justin Bieber, including ‘As Long As You Love Me.’
Porter Robinson unveils Arty’s remix of his track Lionhearted. This time Porter has linked up with the Sweedish indie-pop band Urban Cone to drop the electro house track “Lionhearted” on Zane Lowe‘s Radio 1 broadcast. The track is prefaced with Zane calling Worlds the “hottest record in the world,” and as these singles hit the airwaves, we can’t say that the statement isn’t warranted.
If you happened to catch Carnage at EDC Las Vegas then you would have heard him drop an insane hard style remix of his new song ‘Bricks’. This one might be in rotation for the rest of the summer.
J. Cole breaks down his production process step by step for the hit song “Power Trip” featuring Miguel. Cole uses some cool tricks to achieve the sound he is going for. A must see for aspiring producers!
Tarik and The Roots perform a Harry Potter-themed rap. Black Thought’s rap came to a crescendo with the lyric: “See you on the Hogwarts Express, all aboard!”
Rapid up and comer Trippy Turtle came through in a major way with the aptly titled “Trippy’s Theme.” The song features Trippy’s signature futuristic, sexy sound paired with smooth soulful vocals to top it off. With unpredictable switch ups and drops, as well as complex layering (with some crazy sounds like water drops and bed springs,) the song stays interesting throughout. We’ll be bumpin’ this all summer!
Dilated Peoples release the official video for “Good as Gone” (Prod. by DJ Premier), the first single off their upcoming album “Directotrs of Photography” due out on Rhymesayers Entertainment this August.
Rising hip hop star, renowned chef, and cannabis aficionado Action Bronson demonstrates a few dab smoking devices, and tests tests wax (concentrates) on Episode #1 of Frank TV. Check it out!
Official music video for Myke Charles ‘Over Dose’ Ft. Trev Rich portrays a sexy drug dealer on a killing spree of unsuspecting men. Track produced by Famous (producer for Kid Ink, Soulja Boy and more.)
Mac dropped several live viral videos dubbed “The Space Migration Sessions”. Mac sings (and doesn’t rap) his new tune while backed by the Odd Future-affiliated band the Internet and DJ Clockwork. This track appears to be a definite growth in Miller’s music & we can’t wait for more.
Three Loco are here to make their impact on the rap world, with the unholy team up between Riff Raff, Andy Milonakis and Dirt Nasty you know the results are going to be outrageous. The video for NEATO is their official coming out party and they scored Mike Clattenburg (Mastermind behind Canada’s hit series Trailer Park Boys) to direct it!? The chopped horn beat produced by Nik Nikateen will get your head bouncing to the trios onslaught of off the wall punch lines.
Future’s trap-spaceship banger “Move That Dope” is easily our favorite rap song of 2014 thus far. For a music video, it deserves nothing less than, like, a Paul Thomas Anderson film, and that’s more than director Benny Boom is capable of. But Boom has still put together a fun clip for the song, with screaming sirens and Point Break-inspired president masks and Zack Morris cell phones. This is sadly the Casino-free version of the song, but Future and guests Pusha T and Pharrell all display dangerous levels of charisma. Also, Pharrell is still wearing the Smoky The Bear hat, and Schoolboy Q and Tyler, The Creator show up for why-are-they-there cameos. Watch it below.
