CyHi The Prynce – “Legend” (Video)

“For Legend, I wanted to give the fans a strong performance video to show people where I’m from, my hometown Decatur/Stone Mountain, GA.”

Mission accomplished, CyHi The Prynce! Of course, the single was already dope enough to demand a video worthy of “Legend”… but with work out like what CyHi did over on Sway’s show, whatever else HAD to be dope, too! This vid did kid.

Kendrick Lamar – “The Heart” (Part 4)

So, K. Dot decided that now was the time to set fire to Hip-Hop with a rhyme! And this “The Heart” (Part 4) is fiery to be sure (iTunes-linked below). Listening makes you wonder if those shots, jabs and hooks were aimed at specific people or just sucka archetypes. Break it down and let it be broke, Kendrick. Name names!

(The beat changeups though!)

Miguel – “2 Lovin U” (Prod. By DJ Premier) [Video]

Man hellyeah, HELLYEAH! Miguel and DJ Premier HAD to do a video for that “2 Lovin U” banger! Straightforward shooting in its approach and its messaging. Not subtle at all. It’s like if Michael Jackson (RIP) consulted on the video and said put some it don’t matter if it’s “Black Or White” (or gay or straight or Muslim…) in there. Get into this and groove with it. You KNOW you want to!

Alex Wiley, Chance The Rapper, GLC and Chuck Inglish made a ‘sequel’ to Kanye West’s song, “Spaceship,” called “Spaceship ii.” GLC was on the original, so the sequel had that more-than-implied cosign on it.

Keyshia Cole – You feat. Remy Ma x French Montana (Video)

Crazy!

Look, we KNOW Keisha’s song (“You”) keeps telling us he ‘picked the wrong one’ but… even when Remy evilly declares that he ‘picked’ the right one… even with the threatening torture tools… we do NOT care! Are you seeing how SEXY they are. And LL Cool Montana gets to run free, with stacks, in this video? Some guys get all the luck, and money, and Honeyz. Beats by H-Money & JV.

Drawn in from the first line right? More dope music from Brother Ali slated to be on his “All The Beauty In This Whole Life” album. We posted the pre-order link earlier on here.

I’m honored to present “Own Light,” the theme song of my new album, “All The Beauty In This Whole Life.” Healthy hearts house the light that animates all that we are and everything we do. The light in our hearts is what allows us to hear, heal and be whole. No matter how they repackage their dreary fearfulness, they’ll never plant that flag over here. I’m using my heart for, what hearts are for.

Kanye West – “Bed Yeezy Season 5” feat. The-Dream

So. You got 17 minutes to check out some new music from Kanye West. He did something with The-Dream, flipping a track orginally done up by The-Dream (“Bed”, yeah the J. Holiday jawn)… calling it “Bed Yeezy Season 5”… and it’s out there but in there at the same time. Hard to explain, which makes it par for the Kanye course, right?

Think of this as an extended play for some extended play at the crib. Call bae. Test drive the track.
