Video: Maino Ft. Jadakiss – What Happened

Maino and his fellow New Yorker Jadakiss show us what’s really going on in the Big Apple in the Mazi O-directed video for “What Happened.” “Years of subpar hip-hop have infected the brains of the masses. A zombie like plague has the city under siege,” is a good way you could look at it, too. Check it out above, at your own risk, of course. Previously: Maino Ft.

Trav Ft. Maino – My Nina (Prod. By The Superiors)

Trav Ft. Maino – My Nina (Prod. By The Superiors)

Having heard a couple of previews, Trav is sitting on some incredible music for his next project, P.U.S.H. 2. However “My Nina” is not it at all. The chorus has heavy autotune: “I’m in love with my Ninaaaaaa.” The Superiors production deserved better. This, thankfully, is just a throwaway, but still should have remained in the vault. Shouts to DSOM. Previously: Video: Trav Ft. Jim Jones & Lloyd Banks – Presidential Follow @SermonsDomain

Maino Ft. Jadakiss – What Happened

Maino Ft. Jadakiss – What Happened

While a lot of rappers took to aggressive force in response to Kendrick Lamar claiming the King of New York, Maino decides to take a different approach. He begins citing why NY fell off and why it’s understandable how someone like Kendrick can just come in like that and cause all that controversy. The record is extremely creative and puts a on point perspective on the situation. Jadakiss is the icing on the cake, offering his opinion from a much older view. Previously: Video: ItsTheReal Ft.

Video: ItsTheReal Ft. Maino – Beef With Us

There’s a lot of rap that’s funny in a bad way, but not many comedians who can bring their element to the art of rhyming. Cue in ItsTheReal, Jeff and Eric, who have been doing some of the funniest sketches and interviews over the years. Their new venture is rapping. On April 1, they’ll be dropping their DJ Drama-hosted Urbane Outfitters tape. Their debut video, “Beef With Us,” lets us know that we don’t want to beef with them or their nerdy friend Maino. This has to be the most unexpected twist on a guest feature in years. Directed by… continue reading

Video: Raekwon Ft. Maino – To The Top

A couple months back, Raekwon dropped his Lost Jewlery EP to hold us off until we get his full-length album F.I.L.A. With that EP, Rae proved that he still has what it takes to make an impact on the industry despite being around for close to 20 years. Today, Raekwon gave 2DopeBoyz the go ahead to premiere his new video “To The Top” featuring Brooklyn emcee Maino. This was one of the standout tracks from the Lost Jewlery EP and with smooth production from Roads-Art, it was only right to make the vision a reality. Mazi-O behind the lens.
