“The Homies” by BenJamIN | @BHGBenJamIN1 (prod. by @Johnystormbeats)

Dope track, simplistic visuals, with a little mystique, (compliments of Friday the 13th’s Jason) and a classic Trans-AM – maybe this is the start of a a visual album? Nevertheless, I’m intrigued. Alright, so giving you an introductory cliffhanger, this is BenJamIn and his day ones with his latest, I mean first visual for his track “The Homies”. Enjoy!

“Rich Talk” (Official Video) by Kayo Bracey | @KayoBracey

“T.R.A.P. (To Restore Assets and Prosperity)” – Kayo Bracey

Kayo Bracey recently released visuals for his track entitled “Rich Talk”. About 45 seconds into this video I was feeling lit, with a little bouncy head nod and schooled on Kayo’s ideal of trappin’/chasing your dreams. The concept of “Rich Talk” will restore your faith in your hustle, especially when according to Kayo, – “God is the Plug”. Y’all enjoy!

You’re A Diamond: “Flossed Up” by Cakes | @ItsCakess

“I had to take a loss/Just to bounce back on my feet/I had to shake it off/I came right back with that heat/”Cause I’mma Boss Bitch and I’m Flossin’/Boss Bitch… Flossin’ ” – Cakes

Richmond, VA’s Cakes has crafted the perfect bounce back/shake off the haters and be you track. What I like about “Flossed Up”, is that Cakes is so cold as she delivers the hook you can’t help but to appreciate her dope inner swag and at the same time you’ll remember that you have dope qualities too! Cakes wants you to know that flossin’ is more than glitz and glamour – it’s a mindset. So stay shining “diamonds” and y’all enjoy!

“Flossed Up” is a track off of Cakes’s EP “Gold Decisions” which can be streamed here.

“1/11” (EP) by Pennjamin Bannekar | @PennBannekar

It’s been a minute since I listened to Pennjamin Bannekar’s music. After listening to “Alter Prayer”, a track that was released last month, I realized that Penn can be one of the most “unpreachiest preachers” in indie hip hop. If you THINK his lyrics are sending you a “slick” message, then congratulations Penn just prevented you from playin’ yourself. Today, he released his EP entitled “1/11” which is a fun and refreshing hip hop musical ride. My three favorite tracks are “Alter Prayer”, “Idols” and the catchy “Money Drop”. And speaking of “money” – Happy Birthday Money!! You got these bloggers treating you like it’s your birthday – it really is Penn’s birthday y’all. And thank you for letting The Greener Side of Hip Hop eat this “cake” with you today. Stay stuntin’ with Penn and enjoy y’all!

New To The Greener Side: “Jungle Juice” by Baby Cate | @ThatKidCate

“I know that y’all put a new song in rotation every week. So, I figure I’m gonna show up every week till you take a serious listen to this CD. Then I’m gonna come back every week until you put this here CD into rotation. Every week.”
– Taye Diggs character ‘Brown Sugar

I can’t put my finger on why I am feeling Baby Cate’s music exactly… maybe because when she hit me up with an e-mail her very subtle persistence seemed to be synonymous with two simple words – “EVERY WEEK” Taye Diggs/”Brown Sugar” style. Thus, she immediately set the bar high for having faith and confidence in herself as an artist. (Yep, made me look.) Plus she produces some cool dope beats. Representing New Orleans, Baby Cate’s latest self-produced track is called “Jungle Juice” which she released today. Being that she recently turned 21 this is her New Year, new milestone, laid back anthem – so why not have a drink and get a little creative? Y’all listen up and enjoy this laid back bounce!

“PlugzxConnections” – Rymeezee | @Rymeezee

San Francisco’s own Rymeezee recently dropped his visuals for “PlugzxConnections” from his latest project “Bourne Bad II”. This track takes a stab at “characters” that you meet in the record industry. However, non-factors won’t stop Rymeezee from “building a dream”. He was born B.A.D…. Yeah, you had to catch up too. Enjoy!

“Pardon Me” [Video]” by @FlyTerryMak ft. @suavehasrisen

I’m late, but Terry Mak you gotta know that “Pardon Me” is one of a few tracks that replays in my head from time to time. So I’m happy to see the visuals for it too… Listeners y’all will too!! Enjoy

“Pardon Me” is a track from Terry Mak’s latest EP “I Mean Well” which is available here.

“The Truest” by Rogue Venom | @RogueVenom (prod. by @PhilChronics)

Rogue Venom is new to our pages, so consider the words I posted below, an initial “reaction” to the “Queen MC” Rogue Venom. In between penning this post I was researching Rogue Venom online – and I discovered she BEEN nice. Read on…

Thank you to whoever sent Rogue Venom’s track our way… The track, a new release off her upcoming project of the same same name “The Truest” takes your ears on an eloquent ride, with a cool ass vibe and the combination makes you wanna say “Ooooh, I want to know her name”! But you have to say it/sing it from the soul like Alicia Keys, that’s how infectious “The Truest” is. Curiosity, well in this case her lyricism, will send for you before you know you need more. Go get ’em Rogue Venom. Y’all enjoy!

“Loreley’s Song Pt III” by New Track City | @NewTrackCity253

New Track City takes you on a lyrical and melodic ride on their new visuals for “Loerely’s Song Pt III” from their latest project “Lose Sight of The Shore”. You really have to peep the usage of the scatting, stuttering style within their flows. I didn’t think about this before, but New Track City’s vibe is an excellent ode to DAS EFX – well crafted lyricism, chemistry, and flows. Definitely not a copy cat, but the torch is honorably being carried. Relax and enjoy!

“Motorsport Freestyle” – Marlon Craft | @MarlonCraftNY

Veteran emcee extraordinaire Black Thought ended 2017 by leaving all of our hip hop senses in flames. And New York’s Marlon Craft is kicking off 2018 by lettin’ them senses stay burnin’ with his “Motorcraft Freestyle”. Enjoy!
