Everybody loves Hip-Hop but nobody likes to talk about what’s really going on. The neighborhoods that most artists come from are inexcusably oppressed. Stricken by systematic setbacks. Poverty, violence, police targeting, limited job opportunities, the list goes on. The people in these communities inherently face these setbacks daily. In the United States mass incarceration has […]
South Central talent BALE just dropped off two new songs one being the heartbreaking “Situation”. A melancholy tale of love and love lost, BALE laments over his past relationships unleashing his inner 808s & Heartbreak. The incredible hook sounds strangely intimate, with the auto tune on the vocals feeling fluid and watery as if he’s […]
As part of Boogie’s first album under Shady Records, the music video for his song “Skydive” is here and it’s just as beautiful as the song. Just like the song, it starts off very slow as we see a couple embracing and slowly start to float as the beat builds and the chorus ends. A […]
Let Zacari’s melodies guide you on a trip across beautiful terrains and snowy landscapes in his new video for “Lone Wolf”. The TDE signee’s latest EP just dropped and he’s proving that he’s capable of much more than just hooks. The video features a giant white wolf and the vast landscapes that help encapsulate the […]
Larry June is back to make your sunny days even sunnier with his silky smooth raps and vintage beats that feel almost therapeutic. On “Cold Summer”, Larry June talks about his come up and flexes his various trips around the world over producer Sean House’s soothing samples and drums. If Scarface listened to rap, this […]
Still rolling off of his 13-track project Big Chang Theory, Nef The Pharaoh releases the visual for “Tokyo Drifting”. A standout record off of the 2018 offering. A feature from Raymond McMahon ties the melodic essence together. Both artists showcase their vocals as David Camerena captures them in unique fashion. Direction and editing that give the best visual representation possible.
Coming off his first project of 2019, OYN 2, Earl Swavey drops a loosie titled “Faxxx”. Grabbing Slayter, the cold game connoisseur himself for the feature. With Gnealz on the beat this is a trifecta for a track. The two emcees do their thing over the exquisite production.
Smokepurpp’s music thrives off chaos, energy and unpredictability, so it should come to no surprise to us when his new song “Remember Me” is actually a trap and R&B hybrid (although it’s still pretty surprising). Purpp’s sets aside his usual choppy, larger-than-life flow and twisted concoctions of assorted hi-hats and drums in exchange for a […]
Great music always rises to the top, it’s just the circle of life. Granted, a lot of weak stuff is promoted like it’s great, and sometimes it’s on the consumer to decide which is which, but even the most dense of fans can tell what the deal is, especially when they come across an artist […]
We all knew this was coming. The only question was when and what it would be called. Well, today we got answers to both of those. The new ScHoolboy Q album will be titled CrasH Talk and will come out on April 26th. Q has released 2 singles so far, both of which you can […]
Azjah (pronounced Asia) has released her first single from her upcoming debut album “Princess Diaries.” As one would usually take the approach of dropping a banger for their debut single, Azjah tells HypeBeast that with the passing of Nipsey Hussle her single “Loved Ones” is something that the city needs during this time & we […]
Kyle Banks & Correy C hit the Avenue with a heartfelt track titled “Promise” that is sure to bring out all sorts of emotions in listeners. With the passing of The Great Nipsey Hussle hitting so close to home, a song such as this one is an outlet for all that fans are sure to […]
HeyDeon made his Rosecrans debut with his visual for “Dreams” that carried a great story & positive message. Today as he visits us once more, he continues to deliver great lyrics over a Mitch Geist production. With sounds that may be reminiscent to some 2012 Ne-yo, surprisingly, the track holds no samples & easily makes […]
JAG is a hidden gem that needs more recognition, hence Rosecrans Ave bringing you his latest release titled “Ballin.” His energetic delivery is felt within his lines as he makes himself & all who listen feel like champions. A contagious feeling that is spread over a KE production. When one works hard, it’s easy to […]
As Xavier prepares for the release of his upcoming album, music fans are getting a small insight of what’s to come with his single “Hackers.” With production from Wav, who also happens to be the son of Akon, the track carries a smooth feel with just enough 808’s that allows the substance that Xavier delivers […]
It’s been a minute since we’ve heard a single from Master Kato of Shoreline Mafia, but after teasing fans on social media with some cover art & a music video clip it’s finally here. Hitting up Hit Mob’s own Ron-Ron, Kato also hits Warhol.SS for his single “Lick.” Although it’s a little slower paced than […]
