Joey Badass ft. BJ The Chicago Kid – Like Me (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on February 13th, 2015 by Hyphen

It’s early, but I’ll make two statements I’m pretty confident will end up being true: this is one of the best songs of 2015 and Joey’s B4DA$$ is one of the best albums of the year.  J. Cole at the end of 2014 and now Joey, Lupe, Drake, and soon to be Kanye and Kendrick to kick off 2015.  Not too shabby…

btw, Dilla and The Roots on the beat!

TiRon & Ayomari ft. Jeremih – Her Theme Song (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 30th, 2014 by Hyphen

Well this is a pleasant surprise.  A while after TiRon & Ayomari’s A Sucker For Pumps was released, they’ve decided to put out a video for one of my favorite tracks on the project, “Her Theme Song.” While I miss hearing BJ The Chicago Kid on the hook, Jeremih is a capable stand in and either way, I don’t know how you can’t like this song.

A limited edition re-release of A Sucker For Pumps is on the way…

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib ft. BJ The Chicago Kid – Shame (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on August 11th, 2012 by Hyphen

With an extended intro, you get a bit of a 2 for 1 with this new video from Freddie Gibbs and Madlib for their collaboration with BJ The Chicago Kid called “Shame.” Gibbs is one of the illest out there and personally, I’d much rather hear records like this than the stuff he does with CTE and Young Jeezy. The good news is that he’s so prolific, it looks like he can actually do both at the same time and potentially appeal to the “underground” and “mainstream” crowds simultaneously (if those terms even exist anymore).  Either way, dude is a beast.

Thurz ft. BJ The Chicago Kid – Hell’s Angel (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 23rd, 2012 by Hyphen

Visuals for the excellent “Hell’s Angels” off Thurz’ equally dope L.A. Riot (side note: RIP Rodney King) project.  BJ’s voice is absolutely ridiculous…does anyone handle harmonies like him these days?

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on April 17th, 2012 by Hyphen

The latest video from TiRon & Ayomari’s excellent A Sucker For Pumps project is an ode to all the truly amazing women out there that deserve the world…and more.  With BJ on the hook, you already know what it is.  Great work fellas.

BJ The Chicago Kid – Dream II (video)

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

BJ’s “Dream II” video features footage of his recent trip to one of the best cities in the world, Paris. With all due respect to The Weeknd, Miguel, and Frank Ocean, BJ’s Pineapple Now-Laters might be the best R&B release of the past year or so.  Stop sleeping.

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on February 25th, 2012 by Hyphen

Been trying to tell y’all about BJ for quite some time now. “Good Luv’n” is off his recently released project, Pineapple Now-Laters.  Go cop that, for real.

BJ The Chicago Kid – I Want You Back (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on February 18th, 2012 by Hyphen

BJ is absolutely killing the melodies these days…just listen to those few seconds where the beat cuts out…wow. His project, Pineapple Now-Laters, was supposed to drop on Valentine’s Day but it’s been pushed back until the 21st.  It will be well worth the wait.
