OnCue Releases One Of The Most Creative Videos Ever With “No Way”

OnCue Releases One Of The Most Creative Videos Ever With “No Way”

Let’s just put this out there: music videos are boring nowadays. Often times, it’s too much of the same concepts and not enough innovation. The chances of me watching a music video aren’t as high as they were before I used the internet. This is a reflection upon myself, and not the entire culture. Videos are still a viable source of promotion that stack up millions of views to the right artists. Fortunately, there’s one artist who swayed me to watch his latest visual. That artist is OnCue. A man who went on sort of a positive rant hours before… continue reading

Video Review: Joey Bada$$ – B4.DA.$$

Video Review: Joey Bada$$ – B4.DA.$$

Joey Bada$$ is one of the few New York rappers in this new generation to really make an impact. Since he came into the industry in 2012, he’s worked hard to establish himself and the Pro Era crew a loyal fan base that has been paying off in different ways. Whether it was touring, releasing music, or his most recent debut album dropping, they’ve shown love. Currently, B4.Da.$$ is on pace to sell 50-55K first week. To put it in perspective, he’s going to beat Lupe Fiasco by at least 15K. What we got with B4.Da.$$ is a debut album… continue reading

Audra The Rapper – No.Body

Audra The Rapper – No.Body

It becomes cliche to point out that a rapper has been gone for a minute, so let’s not even acknowledge that about Audra The Rapper. Let’s look at what we have with “No.Body.” The first single from her upcoming album, Retrospectrum, dropping in March. Audra is channeling her inner alien with an outer space-like experience from the moment Fameschool Slim’s slow, off the wall production hits. She’s infectiously singing on the hook, while invoking a calm, strange flow in the verses. A very dark record. “Gave him my mind, wanted the brain/ Forfeit my heart still controls my veins/ Let me… continue reading

Mixtape: C Dot Castro – DOT (Don’t Over Think)

Mixtape: C Dot Castro – DOT (Don’t Over Think)

The acronym D.O.T. is an oxymoron for C Dot Castro’s debut project. A process of not over-thinking is not possible for someone in Castro’s position. Don’t Over Think is his first true introduction to the world. It took much longer than expected, yet fielded for some of the best music he could create. He treated the lengthy wait to the best of his abilities by improving songs, taking them away and, of course, adding in better ones. The entire project is over-thinking. “Revenge” is a record that takes us into the mind of a young Castro dealing with his Mom’s… continue reading

Video: Skizzy Mars Ft. Marc E. Bassy – Do You There

Skizzy Mars is an artist who could’ve been released a retail project and sold exceptionally well. His fans are loyal. He waited, though. After giving us PACE for free last year, Skizzy is dropping The Red Balloon Project on iTunes February 3. Boasting features with QuESt, G-Eazy and more, Skizzy’s EP is off to a great start. “Like This” came out in November and has passed a million views. Today, he unleashed the visuals for “Do You There.” The Marc E. Bassy-assisted track is one of the bonuses for pre-ordering the EP. Sunny climates and beautiful women (some with curly… continue reading

TeeFlii Ft. Chris Brown – Blue Lipstick

TeeFlii Ft. Chris Brown – Blue Lipstick

We’re going into 2015 with the notion that TeeFlii is about to experience his true break-out year. His debut album, Starr, is dropping February 3. This comes after a relatively silent year that saw a few singles. Compared to his 2013, he released three mixtapes, including the critically acclaimed Fireworks, produced entirely by DJ Mustard. His third single off Starr is the Chris Brown-assisted “Blue Lipstick.” As soon as the track list surfaced, this record looked like it had the most potential. The two have chemistry together, but it’s hard to tell if this will be a hit. The J-Keys-produced… continue reading
