So.. they say that fashion trends recycle every few decades, which is probably why a lotta you jokers are runnin’ around looking’ like you raided The Fresh Prince‘s closet circa ’89. Music trends however are different, and as Friday Flips has proved so far, it seems that every ten years (give or take) an incredibly recognized sample gets recycled for both better and for worse. Being that our goal here is to put the emphasis on the positive, and dead that wack sh*t, both Nathan (of Refined Hype) along with yours truly, thought it would be fitting to take a closer look at some recycled dopeness of the past week. Therefore, this week’s Friday Flips comes in the form of track six “Everybody’s Something,” off Chance The Rapper‘s well received mixfile (note: new word for mixtape) Acid Rap, which borrows from Gap Mangione‘s classic “Diana in the Autumn Wind” sample. That said, hit the jump for week eight of #FridayFlips.

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.
