WATCH: Cardi B Goes Off (And Takes It Off!) In NSFW Music Video For “Press”

If there ever was a music video that needed to be prefaced with a caution, disclaimer or any kind of warning for the sheer boldness of what you’re about to see, it without a doubt could (and probably should!) be for Cardi B’s new music video for “Press.”



Filled with pseudo-nudity, murder scenes, bloody bodies, girl-on-girl action and gun shots galore, “Press” is the NSFW masterpiece that is worth stepping out the office to watch for the three-and-a-half minutes that it takes to all play out. The concept, as Cardi described on her IG a few hours ago (seen above), is her directorial debut in collaboration with Jora Frantzis, who also handled the visuals for “Money” as well. From the fashion choices to the, well, lack of fashion via the nude scenes, everything was meticulously mapped out by the rap queen herself. One of the most poignant scenes is of course the one where she shows out in court, which seems to be unfortunately playing off her real-life legal drama from that strip club brawl last summer. For the sake of both Cardi and her legion of fans worldwide, let’s hope life doesn’t imitate art because, well, our girl literally kills everyone!

Peep the music video for “Press” by Cardi B above, and we’ll keep you all updated on whatever upcoming project this song ends up landing on.

10 Classic Rap Videos We Hope Get Remastered By YouTube and Universal Music Group

This week it was reported by The New York Times that YouTube and Universal Music Group would be joining to give some of our favorite classic music videos the remastering treatment. With a time span that goes from the ’80s all the way to the 2000s when things began to change for the better, it goes without saying that UMG has a lot of ground to cover.

The upgrades will be towards sound and picture quality to be compatible with HD streaming devices. The technological advances of today have made it possible to go back and actually “recreate” videos using their original formats, be it original film, Digibeta or even earlier ones like Betacam SPs. This will go into effect for approximately 1,000 videos by the end of 2020, and we’re kinda hoping they’re taking a few recommendations.

Keep scrolling to see 10 of our favorite throwback Hip-Hop music videos from the Universal Music Group vault that we hope to see in HD on YouTube very soon:


N.W.A. – “Express Yourself”

Year: 1988
A West Coast classic that dropped the year The Source debuted on newsstands. Even today, N.W.A. is still considered legends to the game, and we’re still getting these issues out — go cop “The Future Issue” (#275) today!


Slick Rick – “Children’s Story”

Year: 1988
A story we’ll never get tired of hearing or watching. The final scene could definitely benefit from a color & lighting upgrade for sure.


LL Cool J – “Going Back To Cali”

Year: 1989
Not only would a digital upgrade of this video be dope, but a full color version would make for an amazing anniversary release, too!


Eric B. & Rakim – “Juice (Know The Ledge)”

Year: 1992
Even though the scenes with Eric B. and Rakim are brief and only in black & white, the video overall should get a fresh finish for the sake of Pac’s groundbreaking role in Juice alone.


Ice Cube – “It Was A Good Day”

Year: 1992
It would be a good day indeed if we were able to watch this video in high definition. We’re actually surprised this song hasn’t been made into an episode of Tales yet!


Queen Latifah – “U.N.I.T.Y.”

Year: 1993
A timeless message that is still relevant today. The Queen definitely deserve to be seen and heard in HD quality.


Dr. Dre feat. Snoop Dogg, Kurupt & Nate Dogg – “The Next Episode”

Year: 1999
We could name a few things in this video that we’d definitely like to see in the highest definition, and no we’re not talking about Snoop’s iconic Shirley Temple curls.


Talib Kweli – “Get By”

Year: 2002
Simply because, quite frankly, we still miss the old Kanye.


DMX – “X Gon’ Give It To Ya”

Year: 2003
Once X started getting into movies, his videos got way more cinematic. The CGI graphics in this video alone need a fresh upgrade without a doubt.


Kendrick Lamar – “Cut You Off”

Year: 2010
Not only was this K.Dot’s first real music video, but it reflects the year when everything changed and the Digital Era really made its impact on the game. We nominate this one off sheer nostalgia.


What are some of the music videos that you’re hoping to see get remastered? Let us know over on Facebook and Twitter!

WATCH: Flipp Dinero – “If I Tell You” (Music Video)

After trying to get the chicks to “leave him alone” on his breakout 2018 hit, Brooklyn-bred rapper Flipp Dinero is now serenading the ladies in a new music video for his recently-released single “If I Tell You.”



Outside of being a lighthearted video to match the catchiness of the song itself, this music video really stands out for the fact that it’s directed by G.O.O.D Music’s R&B princess Teyana Taylor. Credited as “Spike Tee,” the K.T.S.E. singer adds a feminine touch that’s much needed in the world of cinematography. Her vision sees Dinero trying to spit game to his love interest from the diner to the roller rink. Although he’s successful in his romantic pursuit, there’s a minor twist that get’s thrown into the mix at the end that leaves the narrative up for a potential sequel. Hey, if it means more Spike Tee Joints than keep ’em coming!

Watch the music video for Flipp Dinero’s new singe “If I Tell You” above, which should appear on the MC’s upcoming debut project under Epic Records.

DaBaby Hilariously Recreates His Louis Vuitton Store Fight In “Carpet Burn” Music Video

It looks like DaBaby isn’t about to let up off his recent brawl in the Louis Vuitton store. After already immortalizing the moment on a set of T-Shirts, the Charlotte-bred MC is now making it the subject of his lighthearted new music video for the Baby on Baby album cut “Carpet Burn.”



Directed by ReelGoats, the visuals for “Carpet Burn” is a level of troll that would even make 50 Cent proud. While the first half falls more in line with the song’s lyrics — the video model makes a strong case for “cuffin” and “falling in love” after a rug burn-inducing romp! — the second half is where things get straight comical. The heavily-documented fight with fellow North Carolina rapper Cam Coldhart is recreated to a tee, including the ‘fits and post-fight fail where Coldhart is seen on the ground clinging on to the shorts around his ankles. If you need a good laugh today, or just want to see a good example of why it doesn’t pay at all to try and catch DaBaby slippin’, look no further.

Check out the music video for “Carpet Burn” right now, and stream DaBaby’s debut album Baby on Baby right now on all streaming platforms.

WATCH: Trippie Redd – “UNDER ENEMY ARMS” (Music Video)

After premiering his new single a few days ago on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show through Apple Music, Trippie Redd now gives us the official music video for his first 2019 single titled “UNDER ENEMY ARMS.”

UNDER ENEMY ARMS OUT NOW 😈 listen/download link in bio 💕🐍

A post shared by 14 (@trippieredd) on


Redd’s first official drop of the year is expected to pop up on his upcoming sophomore album, currently going by either ! or Immortal. The video was directed by Christian Breslauer, and shows Redd getting real cinematic on a “Black Joker” type of vibe. From campaigning to be America’s First President of Trap to landing in a battlefield for a gory gun fight, the visual element alone deserves props for art direction. The Ohio-bred MC keeps it fresh on the fashion tip as well, and it all seems to be intentional given that he told Zane during their interview, “I’ve pretty much got the concepts for lots of videos and shit. I’m trying to be visual with this one.” The step-up on a cinematic level is already a move in the right direction, and the song itself is a turn-up that may give it a placement on the charts in the very near future. Not a bad way at all to make an entrance back into the game.

Watch the music video for “UNDER ENEMY ARMS” by Trippie Redd above, and we’ll keep you all updated on a solid date for the upcoming project.

WATCH: Future Dodges Five-seveN Bullets For “F&N” Music Video

As we patiently wait for official word on Future & Drake’s “top secret” project — more than likely a sequel to 2015’s What a Time to Be Alive — the homie Hndrxx is letting off a new music video for “F&N” as the latest single from his 2019 album The WIZRD.

F&N VIDEO OUT NOW

A post shared by Future Hendrix (@future) on


Directed by Colin Tilley, the new visuals for “F&N” puts the Freebandz MC in a pretty tight predicament as he smoothly dodges shots from a FN Five-seven semi-automatic pistol. Named for its 5.7-mm bullet diameter, you can assume that these would do some serious damage to Future if he didn’t have the Matrix-style moves required to not end up like Swiss cheese. The setting puts us inside a bullet-ridden trap house, filled with things you’d expect to find in a trap house and a few bootyful bisexual video vixens dressed as surgeons. Such is the art of the rap video in 2019!

WATCH: Casanova – “Block Me” (Music Video)

Since dropping his Free At Last EP back in February, Casanova has been on a steadfast grind to get these fire music videos off. While he took us to Lagos for “2AM” alongside Tory Lanez and Davido earlier this year, then headed in an X-rated route with the Pornhub-premiered “Splash” visuals that arrived last month, the latest brings us a cautionary tale of what happens when three things just don’t quite mix: your relationship, a mansion filled with vixens that are down for whatever, and, unfortunately, your social media account.

The new video for “Block Me” shows Cas figuring out how to handle the situation when your sidechick decides to scroll through your social media when all you’re trying to do is just turn up with the squad and a few bad biddies. As you might guess, the end result isn’t particularly the dream scenario for our Brooklyn-bred homie, but that’s what replacements are for as the Roc Nation emcee does in the end without breaking a sweat. Utilizing that block button will for sure give you a temporary form of relief, but we ultimately see that the real way to get over someone is by simply throwing a huge house party to get your mind off things. Well, something like that.

Watch Casanova’s new music video for “Block Me” above, and then take a look below to peep the short “Making Of” segment posted on his IG:

Video: J.I.D feat. J. Cole – ‘Off Deez’

Hot off the release of DiCaprio 2, J.I.D unleashes a video for the J. Cole-assisted “Off Deez.”

In the dark and animated clip, directed by Lyrical Lemonade’s Cole Bennett, the East Atlanta playboy puts his lyrical skills to the test, spitting blistering bars while in a chair and under an umbrella. He also links up with his Dreamville boss J. Cole, who comes through with a rapid-fire verse.

“Off Deez” is one of 14 tracks off J.I.D’s sophomore album, which also features collaborations with 6LACK, Ella Mai, Method Man, Joey Bada$$, A$AP Ferg, and BJ the Chicago Kid.

J.I.D has also announced his “Catch Me If You Can Tour.” The 29-date trek will hit college campuses beginning Jan. 22 in Eugene, Oregon, running through March 23 in New Orleans. Tickets are on sale now.

Video: Travis Scott feat. Gunna – ‘Yosemite’

Travis Scott reopens Astroworld in the enchanting video for “Yosemite.”

Inspired by Travis’ childlike-wonder for amusement, the Nabil-directed clip includes an appearance from Gunna, who is currently on tour with Travis.

While La Flame flies on a private jet, he dreams of a child who falls out of the sky and into a magical forest. The young boy ventures through the woods while discovering abandoned pieces from an amusement park including rides and a merry-go-round horse. He makes his way into the mouth of Travis’ giant head where more adventures and thrills await. When he comes out on the other side, he discovers Astroworld, complete with a roller coaster and Ferris wheel.

Travis is currently in the midst of his “Astroworld: Wish You Were Here” tour. Kylie Jenner shared some behind-the-scenes footage from the Madison Square Garden show featuring a cameo from their daughter Stormi.

“Yosemite” arrives just days after Travis unleashed the Skrillex-produced remix to his 2x platinum hit “Sicko Mode.”

Video: Takeoff – ‘Casper’

Takeoff takes off into outer space in the video for “Casper,” the latest release from his debut album The Last Rocket.

In the futuristic clip, dubbed “Last Rocket Mission: The Quest for Selene,” the Migos MC plays an astronaut in the year 2092. He explores a planet filled with beautiful ladies while in pursuit of his perfect woman, and ghost rides a Rolls-Royce Wraith while defying gravity.

“The way I ghost ride the Wraith / Thought you would’ve seen Casper,” he raps in the Gabriel Hart-directed clip.

The 808 Mafia-produced “Casper” is the second visual off The Last Rocket following “Last Memory.” Next up, Takeoff’s Migos brother Offset is readying his solo debut album for release on Dec. 14.
