- Since the release of INNANETAPE, Vic has really picked up a lot of national buzz, like his recent freestyle on Sway in the Morning. Spitting off the dome might be one area where Vic has his brother Chance beat.
- Tyga’s newest understudy, Esty, released a visual for her debut single ‘Killing Your Ills.’ I had never heard of her, but if this track is any indication, she is definitely someone worth keeping an eye on. Tyga delivers a surprisingly decent feature, flexing his bars, while still allowing her to be the star of the show.
- James Blake and Chance the Rapper dropped off the video for ‘Life Round Here’ this week. While it was dope, it fell short of the astronomical expectations surrounding everything Chance. Simple black and white shots of different walks of life don’t really cut it when you make the big leagues. Still, it definitely serves its purpose.
- OVO’s new artist, PARTYNEXTDOOR released two new tracks this week, ‘Muse’ and ‘Candy’, his first tracks since he dropped his self-titled mixtape in July. Each track has a unique sound, a nice touch displaying his slow progress. Expect to see him giving The Weeknd a run for his money in the near future. Bet.
- Last week Nipsey Hussle dropped his “Crenshaw” mixtape. His fans could either download it for free or pay $100 for a physical copy. You might ask who would possibly pay that much? Well Hova for one, who purchased 100 copies of the tape. Good looks, Jay. #Proud2Pay
- Searching for a dose of nostalgia? Look no further than Joey Bada$$’ video for ‘Hillary Swank.’ Good to see the boy evolving. Keep it coming Joey. We fucks with you.
- Last but not least, how could we forget about our favorite BASED video of the week. Last week Jerry Dub, Lofty305, and Ruben Slikk dropped visuals for ‘Hyphy Cum.’ If I’ve learned anything this week it would probably be to cum on everything…just saying.
