The last time 2 Chains and Statik Selektah connected, we were gifted with the excellent “Smoke Break.” Teases of an EP have come and gone. But that doesn’t mean that the work these two put in would never see the light of day. Statik Selektah drops “Man of the Hour” which features 2 Chains and Wiz Khalifa as a single off of his forthcoming album 8. Let’s hope we get to hear more from these two.
In the event that you have been living under a rock, Jay-Z recently dropped 4:44 to much critical acclaim and the album has gone platinum in under a week. With Hov delivering a stream of consciousness throughout, the video for “The Story of OJ” has made a lot of people uncomfortable. However, the video was an exclusive to Tidal subscribers. Fear not, the Marcy emcee has lifted his firewall and the video can now be seen by everyone. Check it out and all of it’s strong cultural visuals.
Even though RTJ 3 came out over six months ago, the steady stream of songs and videos from Killer Mike and El-P have kept us busy. This time, the duo take a ride on a horror coaster in the claymation video for “Don’t Get Captured.”
Joey Bada$$ and Statik Selektah complete the trifecta of new song drops with “500 Benz.” Nah, we’re not sure why these were loose but all of these songs are dope.
Oh, you thought Joey was done delivering heat? The tandem of Mr. A$$ and Statik Selektah drop off another goodie with “Too Lit.”
Nasty Nas salutes his fallen Queens soldier while in the Netherlands with a performance of “Shook Ones.”
Before embarking on tour with Logic, Joey Bada$$ drops off some new grooves for your eardrum. With Statik Selektah providing the backdrop, Mr. A$$ delivers “Love Is Only A Feeling.”
Who said Joell Ortiz is only about that backpacker, lyricism life? He knows how to have fun too and does so alongside Gunplay and PC on DJ Epps “That’s What She Said.” The video is a little NSFW as the three rappers parlay at a strip club with some lovely ladies alongside them. Enjoy, if you dare.
The son of Big Pun pays homage to the late Prodigy by dropping a freestyle over the instrumental to “Shook Ones.”
DJ Concept takes a different route when it comes to honoring Prodigy. Rather than dropping a mix of classic songs, Concept grabs all of the samples that Prodigy rocked over and puts together a dope mix that will remind us of the late rapper’s greatness.
