Lupe Fiasco ft. Trey Songz – Out Of My Head (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on July 3rd, 2011 by Hyphen

I find it kind of comical that so many people, myself and even Lupe included, had issues with various elements of L.A.S.E.R.S. and yet it’s been an incredibly successful commercial album for him.  “The Show Goes On” is one of the biggest chart topping records of the year and the new single, “Out Of My Head,” is getting considerable airplay as well.  Hopefully that continues now that the video is out.

Drake ft. Trey Songz – Successful (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 1st, 2009 by Hyphen

After weeks of teaser pics, behind the scenes vignettes, sneak previews (and sneak previews of sneak previews), the long awaited follow up to Drake’s “Best I Ever Had” video has finally hit the net.

First off, I prefer the mixtape version of this song from So Far Gone (minus Weezy’s completely unnecessary appearance) rather than this edit with an added verse from Trey Songz.  Plus the hook just doesn’t catch the same without hearing “the hoooooooes.”  Why is “hoes” even edited?  That’s not a bad word at all.  “Hoes.”  See?  No censor.  Thank you Don Imus.

Aside from the [Ludacris] HOErrible [/Luda] censorship, visually, I think the video is pretty much spot on.  If there was one iota of sunshine in this clip, I would have been livid.  The beat, melody, subject matter, etc. all combine for a perfect late night soundtrack.  It’s almost too bad the single couldn’t drop later in the year.  This would be ideal for the cold Pacific Northwest winter.

Drake ft. Lloyd – “A Night Off” (or two…)

Posted in Artists, Joints on April 17th, 2009 by Hyphen

“spending every moment in the studiooooo”

I’ve been way too busy recently, which can be a good thing, but sometimes you need to take a night off…or in this case, two.  Back on Sunday in time for Sound Session, but first, heading up north with wifey…
