Anyone that got turnt up with Big Sean and A$AP Ferg during their performance of “Bezerk” at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards last month will definitely get a kick out their equally wild new music video that just dropped today.
Featuring a core cameo by Hit-Boy, who also produced the head-thumping track off Big Sean’s upcoming album Don Life, the video takes us from the trap all the way to Tune Town with a stunning set of visuals directed by Sean, Ferg and director Mike Carson. From the squad of looney-looking kids who seem to be up to no good, to a hot air balloon party with a strict dress code — white tees only! — this music video looked like loads of fun to create for everyone involved in the production.

Following an unfortunate connection to that now-infamous Tekashi 6ix9ine case, Casanova is moving on and upwards with his career by prepping us for his upcoming album Behind These Scars with a new single that features UK rapper Giggs.
Directed by burgeoning creative Mollana Burke, the music video for “Live” gives a black & white look into the struggles that both MCs have faced during their respective come-ups in the game. Set in the Peckham district of South London, the scenes deal with issues that many inner city residents around the world face on a daily: poverty, spousal drama, childcare woes, maintaining a stable household and ultimately finding religion — the latter issue we see Cas and Giggs uniting to discover in the end.

Nas received tons of praise for his “greatest-hits-never-heard” compilation album The Lost Tapes 2 when it released back in July, and now the legendary MC is keeping that momentum going with a new music video for the album cut “War Against Love.”
With Jason Goldwatch behind the wheel as director and editor, Nas spits a story that’s realistic, in some instances poignant, and ultimately serves to let us know what really matters when it comes to the world we live in today. Images of poverty, nuclear explosions, the harsh side of the Civil Rights movement and even Agent Orange himself are superimposed with images of blooming flowers, Martin Luther King Jr., birds in flight and beautiful imagery overall — he literally highlights both the good and bad of society as the three-and-a-half minute clip plays out. Underneath it all, Nas can be seen spitting the lyrics to the song with a stoic expression, showing neither grief nor optimism for the images playing before his eyes. In short, it’s a truly impressive body of work that will sit with you well beyond the abrupt ending.

“Take your hoodie off / Why you hide your face from me?
Make your fucking mind up / I am sick of waiting patiently.
How come you the best to me? / I know you the worst for me.
Boy, you sweet as sugar; diabetic to the first degree.”
The opening bars from Tyler, The Creator’s latest single “A BOY IS A GUN*” are clearly about a male lover, but it’s his new music video for the IGOR album cut that visually confirms his stance on same-sex relationships.
After rapping about “kissing white boys since 2004” on the Flower Boy standout “I Ain’t Got Time!,” the debate on Tyler’s actual sexuality has been a topic of discussion by his global fanbase and the industry alike. However, whether he’s trolling to challenge the epidemic of homosexuality in Hip-Hop or he’s actually somewhere on the spectrum, the truth is that he’s one of the biggest advocates for LGBTQ representation in rap and his support doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon based off his new WOLF HALEY-directed (aka himself) music video. The cinematography overall is rooted in a ’60s-style aesthetic, from the retro ‘fits and dream-like filter to Tyler’s Twiggy-inspired blonde wig. From the artsy vibes to the inclusive narrative, we say he nailed it with this one.

Curren$y dropped some fire with his latest EP Hot August Nights back in August, and it looks like the N’awlins-bred emcee is extending the summer vibes into September with a new music video for the mixtape cut “Must Admit.”
“Cheeky” in more ways than one, the visuals were handled by director Yuset Pozo and shows Spitta Andretti in a position that everyone wants to be in during the last leg of summer — rooftop vibes, FTW! From calling in a barber to get him fresh before the night’s shenanigans, to hosting a few poolside video vixens with barely-there bathing suits on, the Southern indie rap all-star definitely knows how to cap off the season on the right note. Being that in past years we got used to getting mixtapes by the droves from Spitta, Hot August Nights being his only solo delivery of 2019 makes this a moment worth appreciating, especially for those who rep that Jet Life daily.

He may be known as Martha Stewart’s bestie today, but there was a time when Snoop Dogg was one of the most loc’d out rappers in Hip-Hop. As he prepares to release his 17th studio album I Wanna Thank Me, it looks like the rap pioneer is getting back to his Long Beach roots in the music video for his latest Swizz Beatz-assisted single “Countdown.”
The video shows both Swizz & Snoop decked out in blue bandanas and plaid button-down shirts that Tha Doggfather rapper helped make popular during his days as an active member of the Crips gang. Whether or not he’s still affiliated is not up for public discussion, but the main thing worth nothing is that the track slaps harder than the hydraulic low-riders featured in the video itself. Beautiful video vixens, a dancing clown posse and of course clouds of that good green are all included throughout, but it’s the crisp delivery of Snoop’s flow that will have you hitting the replay button to make sure we haven’t time-warped back into 1993 — basically, our favorite OG still got it!
