I’m no agricultural expert, but I’d say it’s prime season for beef right now. This past week has been dominated by rap war headlines: 50 Cent versus Gunplay, Rick Ross versus Young Jeezy, Gucci Mane versus Young Jeezy (as you can tell, he’s not a popular fellow)–which is why we call for a good ol’ detox. In case you missed them first time ’round, please enjoy some fresh, wholesome and nutritious jams from Kids These Days, Main Attrakionz, Killer Mike and a few more below. Bon Appetit.


1) Kids These Days – “Who Do U-Luv”



Chicagi-based hip-hop/jazz outfit served up the second sample of their upcoming free album, Traphouse Rock (out October 30), with this super soulful, bluesy number, “Who Do U-Luv.”


2) Spaceman – “Gonzo”


Directed by: Ricky Shabazz


Not long after his groupmate Aaron Cohen released his MURK mixtape, Inner City Kids MC Spaceman made a welcome introduction to the masses with this cooky video for “Spaceman,” taken from his forthcoming Over It project.


3) Main Attrakionz – “Cloud Body”



Bay Area’s most blunted continued their promotion of their upcoming Bossalinis & Fooliyones LP with this dreamy delight, “Cloud Body.” Consider it Squadda B and Mondre M.A.N.’s official welcome package to cloud rap.


4) Haleek Maul – “88”


Directed by: Merchants of Def


16-year-old Brooklyn via Barbados MC Haleek Maul really had the blogosphere talking (or shall I say typing) this week thanks to his eerie and intriguing “88” music video. The track features on his Oxyconteen project, which dropped earlier this year.


5) Killer Mike – “Reagan”



Killer Mike pretty much cemented himself in hip-hop’s Hall of Fame this week for being one of the few motherfuckers who actually has something to say. Adult Swim-esque animations helped project his politically powerful “Reagan” anthem, taken from his R.A.P. Music album, to screens, and subsequently made it a strong contender for rap video of the year.

Greg Grease – “Forward”



If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break. And what good timing to introduce Greg Grease‘s latest video for “Forward”, a stripped down, less-is-more banger that doesn’t need to be overdramatic to get it’s point across. Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage. Check it out and be sure to pick up Greg Grease’s Black King Cole EP if you don’t already own it.
