Chief Keef‘s 60-day sentence (remember that mindless Pitchfork interview?) is up today, and to celebrate, he releases a brand new track and video, appropriately titled “Now It’s Over.”

Famed New York hip-hop radio station, Hot 97, has been a major–and often heated–point of discussion in hip-hop circles this week. The conversation, which has involved numerous bloggers and on-air personalities including B.Dot of RapRadar and Hot 97’s own Peter Rosenberg and Ebro Darden, focuses in on an issue that has really been a talking point for years–perhaps even decades–now: the lack of underground support from major radio outlets. The discussion culminated–but by no means ended–on Friday when Combat Jack, Dallas Penn and Just Blaze were invited onto Hot 97 airwaves, where they fleshed out the topic for over an hour with program director, Ebro. With that said, we thought we’d form this week’s Heroes & Villains segment to reflect the balance between mainstream and underground, ratchet and righteous and weekday and weekend music that we would really like to hear on media outlets.

Chief Keef has been a one-man hotbed for controversy of late, but it’s good to know he still has time for the music. Here the young’n debuts the music video for his “Ballin'” anthem.



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.
