Kap G – I See You ft. Chris Brown [Music Video]

June 22, 2017

By Jake Miosge

Kap G and Chris Brown head to Las Vegas for some fun under the city’s bright lights in the video for their high-powered collaboration “I See You.”

Directed by Arrad, the Sin City-themed video starts with Kap G driving around the Las Vegas Strip. Shortly afterwards, he and Breezy are seen on top of twin tour busses with the hotel skyline behind them.

The guys have fun throughout the visual. Whether riding bikes, performing on “The Party Tour,” or hanging out with a bevy of ladies, Kap G and Chris Brown show off the bond that allowed them to record this banger.

303BAM – “Right Now” [Video]

June 22, 2017

By Kaitlin

Just in time to roll your windows down and turn your systems up, New York’s own 303BAM released the visual to accompany his single “Right Now.” The track brings with it all that shit talking a good summer anthem needs including lines about the cars you’re pushing, the wave your team is on and the threads you rock. Through its moments of slower, melodic hooks and the switch to rapid fire verses, the track is summertime ear candy. The single perfectly aligns itself with the paired visual, (directed and edited by Director Picaso) which takes “its gonna be a movie” to its most literal sense in its quality and editing.

$hun – “Will Rap 4 A Way Outta Here” [EP]

June 21, 2017

By Kaitlin

Houston native $hun releases his second EP titled Will Rap 4 A Way Outta Here. Coming in 12 tracks strong, the young emcee raps over all 9th Wonder-produced instrumentals from the producer’s Zion tape. Rapping over the unconventional beats, the tape finds $hun more relaxed than ever, tapping into the deepest depths of his creative confines. His bona fide narratives are flooded with substance atop the Southern-infused-meets-mellow-1970s-funk grooves. He’s not afraid to dish on his worldviews, tainted hues, and sweet-sounding love letters to his lady muse. From mock hotline call-ins, to silky smooth inflections, his delivery styles swap between relaxed, pscyhadelic, distorted, and rapid conversational presentations. This project stamps $hun’s new journey off into a different change of pace and place.

Flood Society – “God’s Gift” [Video]

June 21, 2017

By Kaitlin

Flood Society, comprised of MC S.A.V and This Is Aces, unveils their first major release with their music video for “God’s Gift.” The company, a lifestyle brand, is initiating a new movement set to flood the globe. Paralleling the biblical story of Noah the company plans to flood the entertainment space. There was warning of a flood coming and people were apathetic to its mention.

Their latest song and visual hits the streets with its deep-rooted message. The Kavan The Kid-directed visual backdrop shapes the narrative for ”God’s Gift,” a song based on who MC S.A.V and This Is Aces are and what they represent at their core—and that’s faith and belief in God. Astral aerial shots cast the gloriful theme, perfect for the detailing of trials and tribulations that have led them to share a piece of their story with the world. Through “God’s Gift,” the pair express their gratitude towards life given through the sacrifice of his son.

The intention is to provide hope, inspiration, and to show the grace they were given to even be alive today to share this song with the world. The song shows that anything is possible, and no matter where you come from or what you’re going through there’s light at the end of the tunnel. If they made it this far, so can you. Flood Society is here to change the world. Purchase the song on iTunes here.

RoeShamBeaux – “Tequila Toes”

June 21, 2017

By Kaitlin

Northern Virginia hip-hop duo RoeShamBeaux unveils their latest single, “Tequila Toes.”

Coming off the release of their most successful release to date, “Jetta Whippin” (which has garnered more than 100,000 plays on Spotify and 250,000+ plays on SoundCloud), “Tequila Toes” serves as a different direction sonically for the pair. The colorful cut is more raw and uninhibited than ever. Rapper JayTheHomie dives into uncharted territory with partner and producer Mikey Sol to bring us a tale of woe-turned-triumph, assisted by singer MZ, whose melodies take on a life of their own and puts the imprint on an already powerful message: It’s okay if life gets you down. But never stay down. Dust yourself off, rise up, and dance around your demons with–you guessed it: tequila toes.
