G.O.O.D. Music artist Travis Scott just dropped of this short documentary “La Flame,” which is essentially a montage of Travis’s day to day life, which is far from boring, with cameos from Yeezy, Diddy, and more. There isn’t much you wouldn’t expect, but there’s plenty of girls, money, booze, private jets, recording studios and festivals to keep any normal person entertained. If you’re a fan of Travis you’ll definitely enjoy!
DJ Khaled and Nas team up for what may be the most extravagant video of the year. Clocking in at just under nine minutes the video features a vast array of tropical shirts, liquor bottles, and beautiful women in elaborate feather get ups. The beat is a crazy reinterpretation of the Fugees Fu-Gee-La, and as usual Nas brings insight, astute political observation and style. Most importantly Khaled rides a horse through the surf. Behold!
Seemingly out of the blue the RZA dropped a project with the lead singer of indie rock band, Interpol, Paul Banks. Though I was initially skeptical, I listened to the project as a whole and was delightfully impressed. The two New York artists both bring their distinctive take on city life to the table, producing something that is quite original and different from their individual works. The video is impressive, but I’d recommend listening to the album, Anything but Words, if given the chance. Enjoy.
2 Chainz returns with another edition of Most Expensivest Shit. In this episode he and pro skateboarder, Nyjah Huston, are given the chance to taste the world’s most costly popcorn. Covered in the salt from the Danish island of Læsø and edible gold flake the popcorn is being sold at $5 a kernel. Chainz brings his usual elegance to the table, while Huston chills and hopes he can get seconds. Enjoy below.
For episode 5 of the Bud Light Music Series, they asked electronic music pioneer Giorgio Moroder who he would choose to have a bud light with if he could choose anyone. Without hesitation his answer wasbreakthrough DJ/producer Mija. Check out what happened when they linked up.
DJ Shadow has unveiled the music video for the song “Nobody Speak” featuring Run The Jewels, a standout track from his latest album ‘The Mountain Will Fall,’ out now on Mass Appeal Records. We don’t want to speak too soon, but this might be the best video of the year, and the song goes equally hard. Enjoy!
Logic isn’t like most rappers, he doesn’t always take it too serious, but lyrically he can hang with the bast, proven again by his new video “Super Mario World,” a goofy feel good track that might be a joke but still packs a punch regardless.

Mac Miller has a new album entitled The Divine Feminine dropping September 16th. Today he dropped the first single, featuring the man of the year, Anderson .Paak, who seems to have appeared on literally every album of consequence to have come out in the last 12 months. The song is a delightful, bouncy, summer funk-jam that brings the best out of both artists. Enjoy below.
RZA had a secret plan to bring the Wu-Tang clan to no. 1 within 5 years. Method Man, Ghostface, Raekwon, Inspectah Deck, GZA, ODB, U God, and Masta Killa had no idea what they were signing up for. But amazingly, the plan worked.
Schoolboy Q returns with the second installment in his short movie for his recently released Blank Face LP. The action picks up a lot in this one, and the track goes hard. This project is becoming one of our favorites this year, look out for Part 3 coming next.
M.I.L.F.$ is a pervy celebration of mommy complexes. It features the Fergie spelling as usual & although the music is terrible the sex appeal alone is worth a watch.
Francis & The Lights just dropped this brand new video featuring Bon Iver and Yeezus himself. The melodic pop track features soulful yet ambient vocals, with autotune Kanye somewhere in the mix. The video fell a little short, but still worth a watch. Enjoy!
We’re a little late with this one, Mija & Vindata dropped this video for their track “Better,” a little while back. Perfectly matching the uplifting summery vibe of the song, the video depicts clips and images from what looks like a hell of a life on tour around the world. We wouldn’t mind partying with these two!
The short film music video hybrid is becoming more and more popular these days. Schoolboy Q is kicking back into gear, and he just dropped off his own mini movie. It’s a little slow to start but it’s worth the wait, once the music drops it’s everything you hoped the new Q would sound like, with some trippy visual effects. Sounds like there’s an uncredited K Dot appearance on the track too. Check it out and look out for the “Blank Face” LP coming soon!
