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.

Pusha T (feat. Kendrick Lamar) – “Nosetalgia”

 

http://youtu.be/LDQu8DNLzIY

 

Pusha T dropped the visuals for his highly acclaimed Nottz produced banger “Nosetalgia,” featuring Kendrick Lamar. The monochromatic video sets Push and K. Dot in the dark streets of Compton. Their strength as live-performers shines through as both artists are well matched for one another. Both verses are emotionally intense to begin with, but the visuals bring their conviction to new heights. The variety of emotions that Push is able to convey through his facial expressions and body language is riveting. The end of Kendrick’s verse paints a haunting memory when you watch him spit his bars. Click here to check out the full album stream of My Name Is My Name.

Isaiah Rashad – “I Shot You Down”

 


Directed by: Fredo Tovar, Scott Fleishman, & Dave Free

 

Top Dawg Entertainment has proved they’ve got an eye for talent. After scooping up all of the Black Hippy members (Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, Ab Soul & ScHoolboy Q) and songstress SZA earlier this year, the label has once again set their sites on acquiring some new blood.Isaiah Rashad, a young rapper from Tennessee that’s got a real nice flow going on. The visuals for his latest video,”I Shot You Down” has Rashad spitting some rough and heavy hitting lines over a breezy flute sample, which comes together very well in a nice juxtaposition. Check out the video and start following this kid before he blows up.

Lil Dicky – “Too High”

 


Directed by: Mickey Finnegan

 

Our favourite Jewish rapper Lil Dicky is back with the visuals for his latest track “Too High.” For those who are unaware of the rapper’s antics, Dicky is the true embodiment of the people’s rapper. His music is both hilarious and inspiring and because of this, his fan base has exploded exponentially. We’ve all heard tracks about rappers smoking that sticky icky, but none of them compare to the lyrical nightmare that is Dicky. In the video, we have the rapper tripping the funk out to say the least. For Dicky, the craving of chicken nuggets, Avatar references, watching Bill Nye and pleasuring yourself aren’t considered to be that out of the ordinary. Peep the video and enjoy.

Eminem – “Berzerk”

 

 

The term “best video ever” is often thrown around, but Eminem‘s latest video could definitely be a contender for one of the best projects of 2013. With an oversized boom box and shots of super producer Rick Rubin (who easily pass for a white mage) keeping it real juxtaposed with cuts of Em performing on the streets and footage of people fighting, there’s something for everyone. “Berzerk”, which is the 1st single from the upcoming MMLP2, has had fans going ecstatic, as we finally get the return of Eminem in his prime. Check out the video and stay tuned to hear the latest on the project.

14KT – “Five & Ten”

 


Animation by: James Reitano & TFU Studios

 

Though piracy may seem innocent due to the fact that we perceive artists to have more money than most third world countries, 14KT, as well as many others, know the hardships of theft not only from a financial standpoint, but one of artistic integrity. “Five & Ten” has the Mellow Music Group affiliate speaking out on artists who have to pinch pennies on order to get by while listeners and members of the music industry shamelessly steal their hard work. The charming video goes the extra mile, showing the tribulations of a young thief (who has the nerve to jack J Dilla‘s Donuts) in a colourful, animated manner. Make sure you support some of the hardest workers in the game and pick up more of 14KT’s work here.

Danny Brown – “ODB”

 


Directed by: RUFFMERCY

 

Danny Brown has released the music video for “ODB” for which he successfully turned basic shots of him spitting to the camera into an acid trip. In the video, Brown is subject to an army of colorful visual effects reshaping his face. Producer Paul White composed a psychedelic and haunting beat, which when matched with Ruff Mercy‘s visuals, successfully capture the essence of Danny Brown’s lead-off to his official debut album Old, which drops on September 30th.

Lil Dicky – “Jewish Flow”

 


Directed By: Marcus Ubungen

 

Could Philly rapper Lil Dicky be the messiah that the rap game desperately needs right now? He’s certainly got the talent and the fan support to have the aforementioned title. On the hilarious, yet somewhat politically incorrect “Jewish Flow,” the emcee doesn’t leave much to the imagination with it’s use of splicing footage from various films featuring Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and an exceptionally gorgeous German female having fun with a link of sausages. The apex of the video occurs when Dicky challenges Hitler to a rap battle, calling him out for being a Jew and dissing him in front of the whole reich. If this sounds ridiculous, it’s probably because it is. Peep the video above and make sure you show Lil Dicky some love.

Deca – “Breadcrumbs”

 

 

There are those songs that you only need to hear once and after that fateful listening experience, you feel that you can write a book on the subject. If you think the game is on life support because of most of these wack rappers, New York emcee and producer Deca‘s “Breadcrumbs” is proof that this beast can’t be stopped so easily. Not only is the track an amazing joint with it’s potent rhymes and content, but the video is the cherry on top, showing us a space adventurer and his partner as travel to some barren and outlandish areas. Check out easily the best video of the year and get pumped for Deca’s next LP, The Ocean, which should be out on September 17th.
