Just came across this official video Yuna did for the TWINSMATIC remix to her “Live Your Life” single and now I’m on a hunt to find out more information about these producers.  Their Soundcloud page is blowing my mind right now.  Heavy.

Ab-Soul ft. Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, and Jay Rock – Black Lip Bastard (Remix) (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on August 9th, 2012 by Hyphen

There’s a whole lot of talk about crews these days…from G.O.O.D. to MMG to YMCMB to Shady, etc….but honestly, what the Black Hippy crew is doing might be the most impressive of them all.  Quality, genuine, and fresh music, largely built all off their own grind.  Doesn’t get much doper than that.

Drake ft. Lil Wayne & Tyga – The Motto (Remix) (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on December 21st, 2011 by Hyphen

Aw man…when I saw this picture, I didn’t think it was actually going to be the attire for the “Motto” video…amazing hahaha.  In any event, the song is dope…actually, amend that: the beat, hook, and Drizzy’s verse are dope.  I’m not sure why Tyga was invited to the party, other than to help continue raising his buzz, which is actually starting to increase these days.  Wayne…I don’t even know where to start.  Let’s just say his appearances remind me more and more of this every day:

Shrug. Tunechi!

All Tim Tebow Does Is Win…not today though (video)

Posted in Comedy, Music Videos, Sports on December 18th, 2011 by Hyphen

ESPN’s Skip Bayless is easily the biggest Tim Tebow supporter (politest word I could use there) and while we’re all enjoying Tebow-mania, the bandwagon took a step back in to reality with today’s defeat to the New England Patriots. This video is still classic though.

Don Trip ft. Cee Lo Green – Letter To My Son (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on November 5th, 2011 by Hyphen

I figured I’d follow J. Cole’s “Lost Ones” with a track that represents another possible outcome to that unfortunate scenario. While Cee Lo’s addition to the record doesn’t seem necessary to me (and there’s a little too much Coolio in “Gangsta’s Paradise” happening for his visuals), I hope it helps the song get the notoriety it deserves.

Artists take note: this is the kind of emotion you should put in your music. And you also shouldn’t have kids until the situation is right. But you already knew both of those things…right?

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Fences – Otherside (Remix) (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 1st, 2011 by Hyphen


Yet another immaculately conceived and executed video from Mack and Ryan, this time co-directed with their “My Oh My” collaborator, Jason Koenig.  We’re still witnessing Mack’s rise to stardom, but when it’s all said and done, I think “Otherside” will be his defining track.  I don’t know if it will be his best (though it’s hard to beat such a heartfelt, no holds barred view into his battles with addiction), but the combination of the song’s impact/resonance with his fans and what it must have meant to him to record it make it the most notable track in his catalog…so far.

Don’t miss his performance opening for Wiz Khalifa at Bumbershoot this weekend, aka the next stepping stone in his path to stardom.

Big K.R.I.T. ft. Ludacris and Bun B – Country Sh*t (Remix)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 11th, 2011 by Hyphen

There are few things more rewarding for those of us who really live and breathe this music and culture than seeing talented artists, who are also good people with good teams, break through and get the success they deserve. I couldn’t be happier to see someone like Big K.R.I.T. get shine on a major label and have a hit record on his hands with the “Country Sh*t” remix. Kudos to his whole team and to Def Jam for getting this one right.

Seattle folks: come see K.R.I.T. at our Summer Jam on July 16th at the White River Amphitheater!
