Joyner Lucas – “Will” (Video)

I wanna get married, but none of my shorties remind me of Jada.

Think Joyner Lucas is a “Will” Smith fan? Rhetorical question. Totally. Matter of fact, he wrote a tribute song about it… and there is a video for it… Here it go!

Performance: Freddie Gibbs – “Soul Right” (Video)

I can’t hold no grudges. My hands is too busy catching blessings.


So Freddie just dropped off all kinds of fire for Vevo when he fell through to do some Ctrl recording, huh? Check that. He performed that for The Nation! Us. We are The Nation. The Hip-Hop Nation! Click above and get your “Soul Right.”

Wanna know where the hotness is? Go to the fans. The Hip-Hop outlet Ambrosia For Heads did just that when they asked people to assess last year’s best Hip-Hop discs. The results rang out: Freddie Gibbs’ album with Madlib, ‘Bandana,’ ruled. The Midwest rapper’s collab with the SoCal producer is a great mix of perspectives. Gibbs’ street attitude and natural grit meshes well with Mad’s cinematic sounds (check “Massage Seats”) and deep beats. A followup to 2014’s acclaimed ‘Piñata’ disc, ‘Bandana’ is a powerhouse that swerves from lane to lane without fretting about its exact location at any given moment. “I’m not no boom-bap rapper or whatever the f**k that sh*t is,” Freddie recently told GQ. “I’m not a trap rapper. You can’t really put me in a box, man.” ‘Cept for that one in our Brooklyn studio. Gibbs said yes to Vevo’s Ctrl invite, and came to crush “Cataracts” and “Soul Right,” two of Bandana’s hottest tracks. Feel free to share ’em.

Corey Holcomb Speaks On His Bad Intentions Toward Babymommas & Good Intentions For The Kids (Video)

If you want me to leave the girl I’m with, step to me naked.

Rockness Monsta – “Winners Circle”

I’m Michael J with a Fox and she’s so Bad!

How do you think Rock got to where he got? He got out there to find it, grind it, and shine it. Rinse and repeat. And as you hear, dude’s sword is still sharp. He is still out there, getting it out the mud. The path to the “Winners Circle” is NOT pretty. At all!

(Mud? Maybe more like ‘out the bog.’ That sword grind – like, forging a sword from bog ore – has been around for a long time. See how got out there to get it – meaning ore out of the bog – back, back, BACK in the day here.) #BecauseImGettingItOutTheBog #BecauseImANerd #ImAGrimyGeek

Performance: Freddie Gibbs – “Cataracts” (Video)

Whatever Gibbs has got going on while trying to make it through this Coronaviral Era now thrust upon us, I think he will be okay. And we will be okay. His ‘lock in’ at the house is probably not as much a lock down as a chill out (because smoking on that good ‘script’). But before going in, Crtl let the man in to bless their mic and spit on his Rx for them “Cataracts” (HA)!

Curren$y x Fendi P – “Swang” (Video)

Lookit. Any hate you got for Jet Life will not fly over here. It will not even get to board on standby. And no hate in the overheads; can’t even check it (as I might have otherwise suggested). Because hatred is just too caustic to allow around while the rest of us are catching flights. So just keep it to yourself if you got any, because I am giving all Jet Life music out there a long look, esp. if Curren$y is involved #RespectDue #RespectEarn

Okay, thank you for letting me rant that on out. Just wanted to head off haters at the gore. Here is more reason to check for Jet Life like I do. This “Swang” is off that “Smokin’ Potnas” album (out now).
