Editorial Editorial

It has to be said that in mid-November, with 2012 coming to a close (seriously, how fast has this year gone?!), most of the year’s biggest talking points have already been milked: Frank Ocean’s coming out party, Obama being re-elected and Kendrick Lamar altering the trajectory of hip-hop (for good, hopefully). But that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to look forward to in the coming months. J. Cole’s Born Sinner (which is shaping up to be a stellar effort–just lend an ear to “Miss America“), Kid Cudi’s Indicud and Pusha T’s G.O.O.D. Music debut all await us in early 2013. Oh, and not to mention the prospect of new Kanye, Jay-Z and Eminem albums (fingers crossed!) But in the meantime, hit the jump to peep some new tracks and videos from this week that will help hold the anticipation over ’til then. Shouts to Public Enemy, Hot Sugar, OverDoz., Dyme-A-Duzin and REKS.

Nothing happened this week that trumped the release of Kendrick Lamar’s greatly anticipated debut album, good kid, m.A.A.d city. Nothing.

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.
