Mac Miller – Diablo (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 6th, 2014 by Hyphen

I mentioned this on Twitter when Mac Miller’s last mixtape, Faces, dropped, but I’m kinda worried for dude.  He’s really talented (people sleep on the production skills too), but he seems to be in a pretty dark place.  You can’t go more than a few bars on the tape without hearing a drug reference and while he’s always been on that vibe, it seems excessive…and dangerous…lately.

That said, the music is still quality, as evidenced by “Diablo.”  Truthfully, I’m all in on any beat that samples “In A Sentimental Mood,” but Mac’s rhymes are on point here too.  This one line seems to sum up what may have brought Mac to this dark place though: “the industry a lie, all the promises were hollow.”

Well this one is about as self-explanatory as possible.  It goes though.

Look out for the ASAP Mob Lords Never Worry album dropping on the 28th.

Kid Cudi – Mojo So Dope (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on December 4th, 2010 by Hyphen

My favorite record off Cudi’s new album gets the video treatment from Jason Goldwatch’s short film, “The Journey of Mr. Rager,” which comes packaged with the deluxe edition of Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager.  Don’t do drugs kids.

Krit ripped this…one of my favorite beats of all-time by the way.  Shout to the homey John Colombo on direction.

Mike Posner – Drug Dealer Girl (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on December 13th, 2009 by Hyphen

I’ve never done a single drug in my life (no, seriously…I’ve only taken Aspirin like 5 times…ever), but I’m pretty sure I’d take whatever Rosa Acosta wanted to give me.  And for the record, I like Posner, though I feel like he’s about to start getting hated as much as his fellow Duke grad, JJ Redick.  Wait, doesn’t JJ fancy himself a rapper?  Why hasn’t a collab been commissioned?

Anyway, something tells me that even if you’re not a fan of Mike Posner, you’ll probably enjoy these visuals…
