Action Bronson & Party Supplies – Hookers At The Point (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 10th, 2012 by Hyphen

I think one of the YouTube comments summed it up best: “The more you listen to Bronson, the less he sounds like Ghost.”  I’d agree.  Bronson is a beast right now and completely freaking hilarious at the same time.  He’s one of those MC’s that I automatically check for every song he’s on and I’m positive that the Blue Chips project with Party Supplies will be fire.

Freeway & Jake One – She Makes Me Feel Alright (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on May 2nd, 2010 by Hyphen

Awww, no appearance from Jake in the video?  Wack.  Other than that, good stuff from Rik Cordero for one of the best singles of the year.

Freeway & Jake One – Know What I Mean (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on December 19th, 2009 by Hyphen

Here’s the first official leak from Free & Jake’s Stimulus Package album dropping 2 days after my birthday in February.  Pretty straightforward joint, but a dope ass beat plus dope rhymes…[Phonte] what more do y’all want? [/Tay]

Clipse ft. Cam’ron & Pharrell – Popular Demand (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on November 17th, 2009 by Hyphen

The long awaited video for one of the best tracks of the year just hit the net and I think it’s safe to say that the Clipse are officially killing it right now.  Aside from “All Eyes On Me” with Keri Hilson, every joint that’s leaked from Till The Casket Drops has been flames.  If you missed Pusha and Malice talk about this record on Sound Session recently, peep the back story:

Check the full interview here.

Has anyone asked Pusha about that rather potent shot at Lebron and apparently sharing a groupie?  Normally, the tabloid stuff is just that, but it sounds like there’s some truth to this one and it’s a little personal.  Either way, hilarious.  Pusha’s flow is disgustingly ill on that first verse too.

Oh, and for the record – fast food: we off that.

Wale ft. Lady GaGa – Chillin (video) + Family Affair (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 4th, 2009 by Hyphen

The long awaited visuals for Wale’s lead single have finally leaked and I think the clip came out pretty nice.  Definitely crisp and I dig the track, though the blatant M.I.A. swagger jacking from GaGa’s hook still seems a little weird to me.  I’m sure Cool & Dre or someone ran it by M.I.A., but I’d be curious to hear what she feels about the hook.

Anyway, hopefully this single will catch on and Wale can join the ranks of Asher, Cudi, and Drake as the only new cats to actually get a crossover hit.  One of my old workplaces, KIIS in LA, has already added it so that’s a great sign.

Here’s another new video from Wale and Rik Cordero for “Family Affair” while we’re at it:

Seattle folks: Wale will be performing at Bumbershoot this year…don’t miss it…

Consequence & Kid Cudi – Buggin’ Out 2009 (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 23rd, 2009 by Hyphen

“A few new stations, put me in rotation/
They’ve embraced the martian, congratulations”

Well, more than a few stations are finally on board with the Kid Cudi movement and “Day N Nite” is skyrocketing up the chart.  Aside from ‘Ye and the always ill Miss Janelle Monae, Cudi was pretty much the star of SXSW, getting mobbed everywhere and packing out show after show.  Let’s just say there were plenty of Cudi Buddies ready and willing for the man.

Hit the jump to see Cons and Cudi perform this track live at ‘Ye’s showcase in Austin.

Royce The 5’9″ – Shake This (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on December 19th, 2008 by Hyphen

Have Royce and Premier ever combined for a bad, or even mediocre, song?  Nope!  This is another banger, though I think it might be the first collaboration of theirs without the signature Preem cuts in the hook.  No matter, it’s still a great beat and Royce kills it with some more introspective lyrics that remind me of his Death Is Certain days.  Shout to Rik Cordero for yet another dope video too.
