Earthgang - “16 Albinos In The S.W.A.T.S.” (Official Video)

The Atlanta duo known simply as one word; Earthgang, is showing steady growth every time we see them. This new record and visual powered by The Fader is definitely a refreshing sound created from life experiences. The two are currently on the West Coast touring with TDE. These two have paid their dues. Rising from humble beginnings, and developing their sound from their college days at Hampton University is an amazing story which deserves recognition.

Obviously these two are self motivated, not trying to be someone other than themselves, you have to see the similarities between them and a young Outkast. Especially sharing some similar turf in the new music epicenter, a.k.a Atlanta, GA. Watch this new visual and follow the Flying Travolta Brothers on IG to keep up with their upcoming tour dates.

Tsu Surf Takes Us Deeper Into The Story With Latest Installment: HOUSE IN VIRGINIA 3

The plot thickens as Newark, NJ battle rapper Tsu Surf continues his story. With the 3rd installment to his “House in VIRGINIA” series, Surf show’s why he stands as an emcee as well as a dope battle rapper. If you haven been keeping up with the series this is a great time to take 10 minutes to listen. Since Surf started this series, especially since the momentum he’s been building from recently beating Hitman Holla last month, a lot of Joe Budden comparisons have been hitting the net.

I get where the people are coming from, but Tsu Surf has to show me more versatility as an emcee before I can put him in a category with a Joe Budden caliber artist. This “House in VIRGINIA” series is a great start for an artist like Surf to start making that transition.

The On-The-Go Culture Can Add Fast Food Pizza To The Menu

Founder of “The Box Brands,” Dennis Koci is going to change the way people spend their lunch hour in the brake rooms all over the country. Introducing the “Pizzabox,” but not the typical cardboard like most of you are probably thinking. Pizzabox is a self-contained 6 foot tall vending machine which prepares fresh pizzas for customers. The pizzas are cooked in an 800 degree oven, and takes approximately 90 seconds for the entire process. Pizzabox is still in the testing phase, but is expected to start making debuts sometime next year. USC is said to be one of the first locations to get this new tech. Koci is not aiming at the moon with this concept just in case you were wondering. He’s already starting using this tech on another vending machine food service that makes burritos called, “Burritobox.”

Also check out this video introducing Pizzabox, and get Sean Kingston’s first reaction.

Vince Staple is Catching Fire With New EP: “Hell Can Wait”

Most of you know this is the time of year we see a lot of new artist emerging and major label scheduled releases. This is game time! When all the big plays are made and legends are built. 4th quarter isn’t just for all-star shooting guards anymore. Vince Staples is rapping like his life depends on it. Lately we’ve seen a lot of press surrounding Vince and his beef with hip-hop crony Tyler The Creator. The LA native has released his new EP, entitled “Hell Can Wait.” The project is available via Spotify and is packed with interesting beats and more LA slang for us to sit with and digest. I don’t know exactly where Vince is trying to take us on this EP, but the music isn’t bad, it seems to lack direction. Records like “Screen Door” is the sound I like to hear from Vince, but don’t be fooled, there is plenty of heat delivered on this project. With everything going on in his life, the major collaborations with Mac Miller, and the rising fame makes me wonder what he’s setting us up for on his full album debut.

How Do You Create Art That Excites Other Artist? Ask Flying Lotus

How do you create art that excites other artist? Ask Flying Lotus how he’s able to create pieces that hold a moment in time. “Never Catch Me” is a phenomenally produced record like many others from his catalogue. Visually this record is enhanced by the cinematography paired with this audio voyage narrated by Kendrick Lamar. The motif (NEVER EVER CATCH ME) is so cleverly depicted by director Hiro Murai. While everything else around stop, even when you physically leave this earth, something still remains. The visual is abstract enough to make suggestions, but not squeeze the imagination out of the viewer. If you’re reading this you already know Flying Lotus’s new album “YOU’RE DEAD!” Drops next week.

Theophilus London Talks About His Experiences With Girls That Like Girls

Lyrically Theophilus London has been nice on the tracks for years now. Kanye West executive producing the man’s album is a huge statement alone. November 4th we will finally have the album some of us have been waiting years for. Many of you are being introduced to Theophilus for the first time.

Not everyone has been in this situation before. Well, maybe a few of you have experienced it metaphorically. Meaning you have wanted something or someone, but no matter how much you desired this unobtainable goal you would never have it. This new record completely flips the tables and show the perspective of the person who get’s what they wanted. You also get to feel the panic and disarray from the person who gave in to desire and was overcome by “a cool-ass player.”

Tinashe Can’t Pretend Anymore, A$AP Rocky Helps Her Cut All Ties

Tinashe links with A$AP Rocky for a very radio ready record. With that said I really to start by saying this is a good. Tinashe brings that real R&B feeling back to the industry and with the help of this amazing visual the potential of this record is enormous. Good story telling ability doesn’t always lie in the wordplay, but sometimes conveying the emotion is all that’s needed.

At only 21 years old, hailing from LA, but was actually born in Kentucky, Tinashe is doing all right. Linking up earlier this year with Schoolboy Q and now A$AP Rocky, this young songstress is peaking on everyone’s radar. I hope to see her and the hometown hip-hop dark knight, aka. Nemo Achida link up on a future project. Exposing the unexposed is what we do, but in this case all we can do is hope for the best.
