I’m a huge fan of skyline/cityscape pieces, especially when it’s as smooth as this timelapse film of Toronto from Ryan Emond. I need to get to the T. Dot soon. I’m still not ok with Drake popularizing folks calling it “The 6″ though. That name is taken.
I really like the wavelength that Cole is on right now. Real, honest, genuine. Artists should take note: focus on telling your story and let your music come naturally. Don’t force it. Don’t chase radio singles. Do what fits. And use your voice to speak on the real:
Filthy. Those Toronto boys don’t play…
The visuals for one of my favorite songs of the year, “Realla” off TOKiMONSTA’s Desiderium dropped a little while ago, but I didn’t catch them until now. Hope you enjoy.
I’ve been talking to folks a lot lately about K.R.I.T. and how incredibly dope he is and I still think he’s highly underrated. In my opinion, the 4 artists making the best rap music today are Kanye, Drake, Kendrick, and K.R.I.T.. Cadillactica is more of the same. The album drops Tuesday, cop that!
The Zane Lowe produced highlight from Sam Smith’s In The Lonely Hour is the official two step record of 2014 and now it gets some visuals, documenting some of Sam’s recent tour life. Hopefully you’ve had a chance to catch him on his first American tour because his voice is incredible to hear live.
Hip-hop is alive and well. Joey’s murdering everything he touches these days and “Christ Conscious” is no exception. Dope video too!
Watch out for B4DA$$ and Seattle homies: Joey’s performing at the Showbox on 10/10.
The homey Russ has quickly become one of my favorite artists out right now. Dope beats, catchy melodies, and some of the most heartfelt, genuine lyrics in the entire game. What more do you need?
“Yellow” is extra special for me since Russ humbled me with the shout out in the second verse. Definitely got you homey!

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.
