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!

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.
The song’s hook first appeared as a teaser at the end of Kendrick Lamar’s music video for “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe.” The full clean version of the song then appeared on the NBA Live 14 Soundtrack.

Only a week til the release of Rick Ross’ sixth album ‘Mastermind’; to hype the album Ross just released the official video for his Diddy and French Montana-assisted single ‘Nobody’. The track was produced by Diddy himself and is a remake of Biggie’s classic ‘You’re Nobody’.
Shakira and Bajan bombshell Rihanna turned up the heat in their duet, Can’t Remember to Forget You. In the four-minute visual, directed by Joseph Kahn, Shakira and Rihanna are seen rubbing each other and twerking in a series of whore outfits. “Working with her was utopia,” said Shakira. “She’s the sexiest woman on the planet. And at the end of the day, we’re both just basically Caribbean girls.”
