Cozz – Cody Macc (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on October 4th, 2014 by Hyphen

I always enjoy seeing new talent come out the gate spitting hungry AF and that’s what you’re seeing with Cozz, J. Cole’s newest signing to Dreamville.  The most amazing part of this video is that they actually got shots of Los Angeles without any cars driving around in the background.  But on the real, peep Cozz’s abum that just dropped, Cozz & Effect, and watch out for an appearance on SNSS real soon.

J. Cole on Sound Session (video)

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on June 23rd, 2013 by Hyphen

Along with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, we sat down with good friend of SNSS, J. Cole, at our recent Summer Jam concert at the Gorge.  The video of our interview doesn’t fully share how dope a conversation this was, mainly because of the lack of proper equipment we had down there, but there’s still a lot of interesting stuff from Cole.

Of course we spoke all about his new Born Sinner album, including the pressure he felt while making it, why he decided to compete with the other artists dropping 6/18 too, and why the album is his attempt to “beat the system.”  We also spent time talking about his favorite subject, basketball, and what it’s like being friends and playing ball with NBA players, their words of encouragement for him, and if he would trade rap for hoops.  There’s some more random goodness in there too.

Shout to Cole for always being one of the coolest dudes in the industry and always supporting our show.  Be sure you cop Born Sinner in stores now!

J. Cole – Sideline Story (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on April 14th, 2012 by Hyphen

Cole’s album is full of good records, but the title track might be my favorite of them all. Great beat and some heartfelt rhymes…can’t ask for more.
