Cormega Speaks On Queensbridge Rappers Going For Theirs And Getting It While He Was Getting It In On The Streets (Video)

Great interview! I especially like how Raine and Cormega got into respect for the Culture vs. the Street in this discussion. Gonna check for that Cormega release off the strength. Respek!

Cormega has returned with a new EP titled “Mega.” The five-song collection is produced entirely by Grammy-winning hitmaker Street Runner and has one lone guest, veteran rapper-producer Havoc of Mobb Deep fame. For those real MCs out there, ‘Mega even included the instrumentals of the five songs so you can spit your own lyrics on them.

Cantrell – “Fo Five” (Prod. By MiSCHIEF BOY x Rahki) [Video]

Sh!t get scary like Freddy, no Fab 5.

Riding out to a nice beat, we get more of Cantrell to help bring in 2019 the right way with this one.

Following the release of his debut EP Stardust 2 Angels, Cantrell returns with a brand new video for “Fo Five” to kick off the year.

Directed by OPN SZN, “Fo Five” begins with a young man that is ostracized by his peers on the basketball court due to his ragged appearance. After a chance encounter, the Albany-native finds himself providing a helping hand and some much-needed guidance. The video is reflective of a culture dominated by material possessions rather than the person who sports them.
