After dropping a new song on us for the first time in sixteen years, Gang Starr is back with a video for “Family and Loyalty” featuring J. Cole. Directed by Fab 5 Freddy, clips of the late, great Guru are weaved into a set of visuals where DJ Premier and Guru’s son are dropping jewels off to friends and family while J. Cole can be scene delivering his verse inside a basketball gym.
Murs and 9th Wonder continue to push the stellar The Iliad Is Dead & The Odyssey is Over with a video for “Super Cojo Bros” that features verses from Cojo and GQ.
Casanova takes it down a notch and gets introspective alongside Giggs in the video for “Live” from his Behind These Scars album dropping on October 11.
Nas drops the video for “War Against Love” from his The Lost Tapes 2. The Jason Goldwatch directed video juxtaposes feats of love in humanity with man-made destruction that often offsets the good in the world. The message is clear: choose love.
The verbally vicious Young M.A. drops by to absolutely annihilate a pair of beats that kicks off with Casanova’s “So Brooklyn.” Man, HERstory in the Making can’t come soon enough. Drops on September 27th.
The underrated lyrical dexterity of Pharoahe Monch surfaces alongside a new musical outfit known as Th1rt3n. Monch is flanked by drummer Daru Jones and guitarist Marcus Machado to get busy over Nottz production on “Palindrome.”
Not too long ago, KXNG Crooked flipped Nas’ “I Gave You Power” for his “The Weeklys” series and delivered the brilliant journey of a gang rag in “Life of a Bandana.” Now, the Los Angeles spitter drops a video to illustrate the words.
After smoothing it out with Chris Brown, Casanova is back to his ways as he drops the video for “So Brooklyn.” Fabolous rides shotgun as the duo represent for their borough as fellow Brooklynites Zab Judah, Maino, Papoose and others drop by the set.
With Eve garnering incredible critical acclaim, Rapsody feeds the masses with a new video off the album. The Snow Hill emcee recruits Leikeli47 to put some verbal enhancement on the bouncy “Oprah.” Once again, we get powerful images of Black women as the two emcees make the dollas circulate.
After dropping “Black Mask,” Termanology and Dame Grease deliver another video off of Set In Stone (dropping 9/13) with “Heartbeat” featuring C Scharp.
