Director Nimi Hendrix nailed the essence of a storytelling with his latest music video for two prominent New Jersey artists. Tax G and Albee Al teamed up nicely for their latest song together, “How I’m Comin”, and now continue to create a buzz surrounding the song with a new music video. Both NJ artists made sure to keep NJ at the forefront as you get glimpses of DJ Wallah, Cruch Calhoun and Chad B. The video is a story of being locked up and held down for some time but still having the ability to evolve even after imprisonment. The song captures both sounds of the artists very well, now giving you a blend in front of the camera you don’t want to miss. Take a look and comment!
Cash Sinatra is back with something to keep your ears buzzin as summer begins to pick up. He shys away from dropping something new and chooses to freestyle over “Oochie Wally” by Nas and the Bravehearts which was released in 2000. The freestyle picks up quickly while the he matches the energy of the beat effortlessly. I liked his flow over the beat and his subtle punch lines that he delivers to keep you entertained. Short and sweet, and better yet, dope from beginning to end. Check it out.
After only being seconds into this video, I could tell that it has the potential to be utterly powerful. Unchained executes an eye opening visual for his latest song “Hurricanes”, that will keep your mind going and replaying the images displayed long after the video has ended. During the music video you get to see the artist struggle choosing between various doors of struggle and pain and he attempts to find his way. It is very symbolic and sets the tone for the rest of the video and the lyrics of the song. I appreciated how he kept featured artist E in a separate space, allowing his vocals to break up the song and ultimately the video. Check it out and comment below.
I won’t say too much since you’ve most likely have been jammin to Karma’s new single, “Make Me Say” already, but then again, this artist has given us more than song to take a look at. The sultry R&B singer released the official video for her new song and it’s something you will definitely enjoy. The video shows her getting ready with some friends before she meets up with love interest or rapper played by SōULFULL, for a romantic dinner. Directed by Money Long Media, the video shows her in a fun and sexy light and gives you something to watch as you jam to her voice. Check it out and comment below!
SoULFULL Sundays are back and in full effect with some new bars and sounds for the rap heads. Franklin native released his new single, “Come On” this past Sunday as he makes his way back onto the music scene as a solo artist. He’s had a busy year with two joint projects with artist Ty Jack and Karma respectively, but he’s back to putting out music and reminding his audience that he’s still evolving. Produced by J. Dilla, its slow and steady beat matches the manner of his come back as an individual artist. Take a listen and comment below.
Chaos usually erupts when multiple artists of different backgrounds appear on one track, but Fredfades has created something memorable on his latest single from his new LP entitled Warmth. The Norway artist fuses his music alongside featured artists Moruf, MoShadee and Ivan Ave on his intro song “Cold”. The beat is what catches my attention first, reminding me of something out of the 80s. Then each artist takes a turn on the track and flows right into the next with a subtle chorus serving as a bridge between the verses. The song is uniquely catchy and pulls the audience in enough to want to hear more, which is always the goal. Check out the single and full LP!
Therapy through a beat, isn’t that what music is anyway? Ayodale has mastered the ability to create music that feels like a therapeutic release. “HE-R.”, is no different and simply put, is one of my favorites from this artist. She simply talks over the beat and pulls you in as she discusses a woman in love and all that may come with it. Instead of writing about what she says exactly, I’ll leave the words up to her.

This single isn’t quite a new release but it doesn’t meet the standards of a traditional throwback. It’s the song that you’ve had on repeat and the music video just reminds you it was for very good reason. NY artist Allen York released a visual for his latest single, “Ghetto Gospel” early last month and the song itself is something you’ll want to keep in rotation. The simplicity in the production and witty lyricism forces you to enjoy the song while the video provides you with a glimpse into the New York lifestyle. Take a look below and stay tuned for his upcoming album Project Telescope.
