NEW VIDEO: Sado-San “Anything But Homework”
By J.Scott |

We all can remember those nights. Doing anything but the homework you needed to do. Things are a little more complex this time around though, with Sado-San.

NEW VIDEO: Hi-Tone “BREAKING ANKLES/THE CROSSOVER”
By LG |

Hi-Tone usually can put together some pretty competent videos. This one is no different. The incorporation of basketball into a video with this title is great. It enhances the song.

NEW VIDEO: On Point “My Weekend”
By LG |

On Point isn’t too on point with his lackluster visual for his latest single. Not much to report with this one, as the song is great, but the video delivers no punch whatsoever.

NEW VIDEO: CM “BX To BK”
By J.Scott |

Take a trip with CM from one borough to another. This video is dope, from the Bronx to Brooklyn. And beyond.

NEW VIDEO: T-Kidd “Run On”
By LG |

T-Kidd spits out bar after bar with this one, and it’s dope. The video serves the verse well, because it doesn’t try to be too flashy. I would have liked it shot without the fish eye lens though.

NEW VIDEO: Matt Easton “Minsky’s (The Place To Be)”
By LG |

Now, this isn’t something that’s going to be in your iPod, but it’s definitely worth noting. Matt Easton raps and produces a commercial for a restaurant in Lawrence, KS. You have to respect the man branching out to bring hip-hop to as many areas of life that he can. Great job.

NEW VIDEO: Pistol “BANG”
By LG |

Guns. Weed. NBA2k14. Dread shaking. That’s what this video consists of. The crazy thing is, Pistol isn’t a bad rapper – especially by today’s standards. But the video is just a bore.

By J.Scott |

Let your black diamonds shine. International Maverick sheds a light on darker subject matter.

NEW VIDEO: DopedDre ft. Rick The Raw “90′s Back”
By LG |

I love the concept and the direction of this video by DopedDre & Rick The Raw. The black and white adds great ambiance to an already nostalgic-feeling visual. If the 90′s are back, please excuse me while I grab my Kangol.

NEW VIDEO: Mr. Piif “City Lights”
By LG |

Gritty, boom-bap heaven. Mr. Piif crafts are very competent visual for his latest. My only gripe is that the scripted events were too much of an interruption in the video. I would have liked to see the transitions be a little smoother.

  • What’s Your Name?

    Who are you? Really. Ask yourself that. The first step to making a presence is knowing who you are. The one thing that should always be consistent throughout your brand, (yes, you are a brand), is your name. Occasional name changes aside, your name always be the same. But when upcoming rapper, let’s call him “Kid Magic”, releases new music and his YouTube account calls him “K.I.D. Magic”, song title calls him “KidMagic”, Twitter calls him “Kiidd Magic”, and so on and so forth, how are his fans supposed to connect to his brand?
