PackFM – The N***a Pass (cartoon)

Posted in Artists, Comedy, Videos on November 12th, 2008 by Hyphen

Hahahaha.  This was an interlude off Pack’s criminally slept on whutduzFMstand4? album and seeing some cartoon visuals to it make it even more classic.  Not only do QN5 artists make great music, but they clearly have the interlude game on lock.  Head on over to for more.

Amy Winehouse – Stronger Than Me (Domingo Remix) (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos, Remixes on August 22nd, 2008 by Hyphen

QN5‘s Domingo remixed a classic joint from Amy’s first album and they synced it up to the original video.  After one listen, I still prefer the original, but that’s cause I’ve bumped that one about 23981293218 times (and cringed at the homophobic lines each time).  Domingo did his thing on the remix though, good ish.  Some of you younger cats might be familiar with part of this song, since B.o.B. sampled it for “Grip Your Body.”  And the nerve of them to label it as “featuring Amy Winehouse.”  I hate when people do that.

Sidenote: get yourself together Amy, we need you back.

Vote for Substantial @ the Freshman (MTVu)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on July 10th, 2008 by Hyphen


The homey Substantial has been making crazy moves lately with his single, “It’s You (I Think),” off his Sacrifice album, and now he needs your help to keep the momentum going.  The video is one of five finalists in a MTVu contest, where the winner goes into regular rotation on the station.  It’s real easy to vote, and Stan deserves your support so get to it and vote as many times as you’d like!


2) Click VOTE next to Substantial’s “It’s You” video
4) Repeat steps 2-3 all as many times as you’d like!
5) Done

It’s just that simple folks.  If you don’t remember it from all the spins on Sound Session, listen to the song again and watch the video:

(these are all real stories in the verses btw)

Shout to QN5.

Bad Seed – Clap The Soulja Boy (video)

Posted in Artists, Videos on June 26th, 2008 by Hyphen

I don’t condone violence against anyone, but that’s not what this video is really about. As Seed noted, Soulja Boy “is the poster boy for this dumb ish.” Fact.  Also a fact?  The hip-hop world was garbage for spending all of last week focusing on Young Buck crying and Soulja Boy beefing with Ice-T.  Seriously.  This is where we’re at?  Really?

Thank you to Bad Seed for sayin’ something.  Plus you get a nice bonus video of “Mr. Policeman,” speaking on everyone’s favorite city workers.
