Crazy – [Key Glock]

By Chuck Ramos // 15 Feb 2019

Key Glock shares a new video for his psych ward anthem, “Crazy.” Wrapped in a straight jacket, Glock delivers a sporadic set of bars that reflect the song’s title. Alternating between shots of Glock and a bundle of leather clade women, the video fixates on the dominatrix side of the anthem. Despite being on the road touring his latest mixtape, Glockoma, Key Glock seems to be unfazed by the tiresome nature of the road still finding the energy to release next level visuals for his buzzing project. It is a great time to be a Key Glock fan has his dominance continues to build with each release. We hope you are as eager as we are to see and hear new content from the popping Southern emcee. Check out Key Glock’s new video for “Crazy” below and connect with him on Twitter and Instagram.

Young Dolph’s drip knows no bounds in his new video for “On God.” Hitting the streets of London with his group of video vixens, Dolph aims to shut down the streets of the bustling city, using the prosperous new anthem to further solidify his place as one of the hottest emcee’s coming out of the South right now. UK residents look on as Dolph commands their attention, flexing his continued success and growth while making the famous theater district his own. We personally cannot wait to see what else Young Dolph is going to be sharing with us this year, and even further, we have no doubt that he will break any preconceived ideas that it won’t be heat.

Signs – [Shy Lennox]

By Chuck Ramos // 14 Feb 2019

Here on this fine Valentine’s Day, an artist by the name of Shy Lennox is returning to the spotlight with a powerful new video for his song, “Signs.” This video opens on Lennox waking up in a field displaying an obvious look of confusion when he sees a group of masked figures in the distance. The group of big-headed figures begins dancing sporadically, and matching this, there exists an echo of the song’s bass-line and electronic influences. A series of subliminal messages throughout the video further the deeper meaning here, which beautifully symbolizes the internal struggle that the song is centered around. We hope to hear and see more from Shy Lennox this year as he shows a clear understanding and ability to translate his art from the music medium to the visual, so don’t sleep. Watch the new video below and make sure to show Shy Lennox some love on social media by following him on Twitter and Instagram.

Compton native, Buddy shares a new video for his newly released song, “Cubicle,” featuring 03 Greedo. The song comes off of Buddy’s deluxe edition rollout of his latest album, Harlon & Alondra which features four new records. Buddy channels his inner workaholic while 03 Greedo plays his fun-loving best friend that frees him from the shackles of his mundane nine to five job. After a quick outfit change, Buddy and Greedo hit the streets of California to enact revenge on their office supplies. The video pays homage to the famous cult classic film, “Office Space” when the duo decide to deliver some brutal, bat-swinging justice to the office printer. Hopefully more of the newly released Buddy records receive the video treatment as Buddy continues to shine both sonically and visually.

Jorja Smith is certainly not a new name in music, but even so, she’s always able to captivate listeners like it is the first time we’ve ever heard her sing.

With this one, Jorja creates a soulful yet bouncy take on the famous Fugees ballad, “Killing Me Softly”, adding her own unique vocal stylings to the 90’s hit record.
