Kendrick Lamar – “These Walls” (Video)

Recently I was watching Comedian Corey Holcomb‘s “5150 Show” and he mentioned that he was going to be in the upcoming “These Walls” video by Kendrick Lamar.  If you know Corey then you know he is hilarious so I knew it was going to be something worth checking out.  Well the video has now dropped and it didn’t disappoint.  Kendrick has it titled correctly as a Black comedy because it is an 8 min piece.  You know how Kendrick does he gives you humor and a message all tied in together.

Jay Rock – “90059” (Prod. By TaeBeast) [Video]

TDE going kinda ODB-meets-ADD-and-DVT (with all that ruckus rapping, all-day riding, and those pills they’re popping)! This visual for “90059” (produced by TaeBeast)… CRAZY… and that is an understatement. It’s a worthwhile viewing experience though. Go ‘head and click play to witness Jay Rock wildin’ out!

Rewind: Kendrick Lamar’s Breakout Performance in Atlanta 2011 (Video)

Before he was selling out The Tabernacle (historic concert venue in ATL) or playing Music Midtown, one of the largest festivals in Atlanta, a young Kendrick Lamar rocked the stage at the Masquerade back on April 2, 2011.  Well before his albums “GKMC” and “To Pimp A Butterfly,  young “KDot” made noise & grew his fanbase off of his mixtapes.  I was in attendance for this show along with my radio co-host Jayforce to see him perform.  We were guests for Kendrick’s show in part because our program The Beatz & Lyrics Show was the first show playing Kendrick’s music in Atlanta on a regular basis & we also conducted his first Atlanta radio interview. So naturally we looked forward to finally seeing him in person.  He did not disappoint it’s crazy to look back now because Ali, his famed engineer, was his DJ that night and his hype man was Schoolboy Q who at the time was only known by a few die hard TDE fans.  This particular show was Kendrick’s official breakout show in Atlanta when you knew he was going to be a star on a larger level.  Kendrick made a lot of fans that night and it doesn’t surprise me at all the success he has gained.  So check out this vintage footage I shot of him rocking the crowd before the albums, before the baby twist dreads, & before the worldwide acclaim.

More footage after the jump below…

Kendrick Lamar – “For Free?” (Video)

Jayforce, Ojones, Twice Born The God, and I often talk about how artists should put out quality visuals to bring great records to life.  Well Kendrick Lamar brings to life not just a track off his album but the fan favorite interlude “For Free” and the visuals do it justice.  I think we all who have played “To Pimp A Butterfly” album rapped this interlude and yelled out “This D!*k aint free”.  The video is directed by Joe Weil & The Little Homies (K-Dot always showing love to his people) with a beautiful lady playing the sassy mouth woman in the video.  Kendrick plays a few characters himself, Uncle Sam and with some cgi in the final scene he plays everyone.  I think you will enjoy and remember “This D!*k aint free”

Schoolboy Q – “Break The Bank” (Prod. By Alchemist) [Video]

Schoolboy Q’s brand new Alchemist-produced banger ‘Break The Bank’ is one of my favorite hardcore hip hop songs out right now. Been banging the song on my radio show since the single dropped & now we have some new visuals, directed by Jason Goldwatch, to accompany the dreamy & almost nightmarish vibe of the song. No cameo from Alchemist in the clip, but the Raiders gear is a good nod to my favorite NFL team. This banger from the West Coast emcee & TDE affiliate is off of his ‘Oxymoron’ album that just dropped today on Interscope Records.
