Dewayne Jackson seems like he’s warming up for something big. “Truth Is” is masterclass of rhymes, storytelling and flow. The phenomenal swaying production from Andre Paxton provides the opportunity that Jackson grabs with both hands, spilling his sorrows with energy and elegance that makes you nod your head.
Haven’t dropped one of these for a while and I feel like I’ve been sitting on some dope cuts that I actually forgot to post about in the last few months. Round 8. Leggo.
Sometimes shooting a music video is better when the rapper doesn’t actually show up at all. “Co-director” Ryan Staake walks us through the story of how Young Thug’s Wyclef Jean music video came together, despite all odds…
“Co-Directed” by Ryan Staake & Young Thug
East London Hip Hop artist Jay Prince continues his progression as one of the most thoughtful rappers in the game. This mixtape is just a sampling of what the guy is capable of, with superb songwriting interweaved with smooth production and awesome collaborations. “All In” and “Where You Belong” are two of my favorites
heavy hip hip vibes from Messieurs Simonez and Gus. Gus Dapperton shows his range of sound and ear for production and Simonez Dega brings the fire and the flow.
Excellent choreography and execution from Director Carlos Lopez Estrada with a fitting visual for Clipping’s slow but deadly track.
IshDARR teams up with one of my favorite producers, Esta, for an excellent piece of Hip Hop. The production is supreme and Ish’s flow is point but its the revamp of the “Shotcaller” chorus that really makes this something special.
The intro of this track just screams summer Hip Hop. Excellent production by Josh December underpins the rhymes and flow of teenage, Orlando-based rapper Kaiydo.
