“Summertime” (Official Video) by El Bleu | @Marty_McRhymes

Here’s some future “Throwback Thursday” for ya’. Hailing from sunny California rapper El Blue teases us with a little retro feel appeal for the new visuals for his single “Summertime”. Backed with a slowed down jazzy track, El Bleu flips the script on this usually happy sunny season as he struggles to chases his desires for the greener side, however… “Summertime is so grey.” Y’all enjoy!

“I Mean Well” (EP) by Terry Mak | @FlyTerryMak

From New Jersey and now L.A., Fly Terry Mak is back again with his latest EP “I Mean Well”. With production by Mak and Tyler Braddock, the EP leads off with my favorite track so far “Pardon Me” which sets off the whole vibe of Terry Mak’s good intentions/unapologetic tone. Here’s more about the EP straight from Terry Mak’s PR Team…

“The ‘I Mean Well’ EP highlights hip hop artist Terry Mak’s balance between his own intentions and how the world may choose to see him. With feature’s from New Jersey’s rising artist Suave, New Orlean’s own Kendal Banks, and Maryland native Kooth, the project goes through a number of different emotions in the form of honest lyrics and hard hitting production. As he unapologetically presents himself to the industry as well as to the world, however the results may come, Terry Mak says ‘I Mean Well’.

Y’all enjoy!!

“THEN WAS THEN”  (ft. Truth Enola) – Mr. Complex | @PlexPlexPlex

This is a dope visual by Mr. Complex for his “Then Was Then” track which has all the perfect feels of retro hip hop. Almost made me feel like Mr. Complex is the “King of Rock” with his ode to Run D.M.C. (and other good things hip hop) a là the fly leather gear and hat to match. Truth Enola compliments the track nicely with his vocals on the memorable chorus. They aren’t strangers to the hip hop scene but together, Mr. Complex and Truth Enola can put this visual in the bag of “good ass curated” hip hop. Enjoy! 

“Then Was Then” is featured on Mr. Complex’s latest project “Forever New” featuring some serious heavy hitters – Maya Azucena, Tiye Phoenix, Sadat X, Georgia Ann Muldrow, and more. This is not “for share” but “for sale”… Get it here

“Suspension” by Coole High | @CooleHigh 

Coole High recently released new visuals for his track “Suspension” which can be heard on his latest project “Clouded Visionary I”. Coole High is a nativev of Brooklyn but recently relocated to Las Vegas… And, after watching these visuals, you’ll also wonder how Coole High woke up in the Nevada desert with a glass of cognac in his hands. If you really know Coole High, if you are a fan of Coole High, then you know that cognac is synonymous with part of his “lifestyle baby”! Check it out and enjoy! 


“Clouded Visionary I” is now available on bandcamp

“Compton Zoo” – MC Eiht | @eihtOeight 

“If ya’ shit get thick, then throw ya’ dice smarter… ” – MC Eiht 

Compton’s MC Eiht and DJ Premier recently released their visuals for “Compton Zoo” which will be featured on MC Eiht’s forthcoming project “Which Way Iz West”.  Although I’m “here” for MC Eiht’s gray beard (it’s synonymous with hip hop’s longevity to me) “Compton Zoo” has all the feels of a damn good West meets East Coast track complete with both veteran artists doing what they do best – rappin’ and scratchin’.  

Happy Friday and y’all enjoy!

“The Message” (Official Video) – Track Seven Band @TrackSevenBand

“I said from the start, my team is the meanest…” – Cost 

I might be late, well hella late for posting this, but Cost doesn’t know how many times I used to replay that line (and the entire track) even before Track Seven Band dropped the visuals for their inspirational track “The Message” back in April. Okay, maybe I was being a little selfish listening to the track on my headphones at work to brighten my day(s). Nevertheless Track Seven Band, may be the meanest rock/hip hop band but they are also proving to be some very cool, humble cats with a universal appeal when it comes to their music – think Bono/U2. And I love it! 

Listen up, and enjoy “The Message”.
