Baiyu - "Take a Number" Music Video

image via www.baiyuonline.com

It's been a minute since we last got a visual from Baiyu. We've seen that she's deliberate and calculated in her career moves and it has definitely paid off for her. Her FreEP "Fan Fair" was downloaded a phenomenal 200k+ times! That just goes to show you that working a project for it's full lifespan makes all the difference in the world.

"Take a Number" is Baiyu's club anthem for all the girls with scores of lame suitors. The video does not feature Fred the Godson, who's featured on the album version. Either way, Baiyu is a super dope vocalist that stands on her own and I definitely see a breakout on the horizon. If you haven't downloaded "Fan Fair" already, hit the stream/download link below to get yourself up to speed. Enjoy....

Neak - "Big Dreamer" feat. NidaNasheeda Music Video


Be inspired. Inspiration is everywhere. We just have to be aware and available to receive it.

Today, my inspiration comes from Neak's "Big Dreamer" music video. Everything about this is fantastic! The music, message and visual are warm and encouraging. Director Domi V absolutely killed it with the video effects and Neak delivers a fine performance as is standard for him. "Big Dreamer" is just a very polished product.

Neak's new album 'Love Greater: The Prequel' drops today via Earmilk, DJ Booth and Prefix Mag. That's pretty damn epic.

Villa - "Opening Ceremony"


Villa is just a smooth ass dude. I never quite know what to expect from him as far as content and concepts, but I know that the sound will be right "in the pocket." "Opening Ceremony" is no different and has the Atlanta MC's signature all over it.

This dropped several days ago but I hadn't posted it due to my 9-5 trying to drown me. It works out to be a fitting revival of my regular (but not regular) posting schedule. Villa is always saying something slick and my favorite line out of this new track is, "We're never comin' from the house but from the barracks only."

Damn right, Villa. Soldiers up!

Kid King - "Spazz Out" Music Video


Chicago work on deck for y'all from a new name for me. KidKing has a b-a-n-g-e-r with this C-Sick produced track. The first thing that stood out to me about this artist is something that a LOT of upcoming rappers don't understand: Conviction. KidKing's energy is infectious and his hunger is apparent. That's what it's about.

I found this total package to be exceptional. I was bouncing in my seat and damn near made myself dizzy nodding my head so hard. I can't wait to hear this track in the car. I'm gonna shake something loose for sure.

Dig in....
