Alaska’s Scoe has a very good song right here, and this one comes courtesy of Raw Beatzz. For a hit of the goodness, have a listen to the new video for “Yola”. If you didn’t realize Alaska has some hip-hop (or “still has some hip-hop”, if you know about what existed before), get yourself associated with this guy.
Two weeks ago I posted a new track by rapper Brewski called “Blake Griffin” and if it got you pumped out nasty nards or santified tickuluns, then you must watch the video, a celebrating of balling, basketball, and yanking on your testes. Okay, maybe not the latter but for those of you who make basketball your favorite sport, this will take you overboard. The song is from his album The Confidence, released last week on the 13th.
Hidden In Plain Sight 3 is the forthcoming street album from V. Nova, who did “Much More” and decided “hey, this should be a video”. He did this with director Philly Spielberg (of the Speilberg family of filmmakers) and the song was produced by The Crack Factory. This one could easily take you through the season without interruption, so get on it and let’s go.
“1 track, 1 take, no punch-ins“. That is how Potluck despite their new song “4 Minute Dire Drill” and when all you make for yourself is four minutes with absolutely no extras or extra time to spice things up, you do what it takes when you’re in survival mode. Listen to the end result in the video above. They’ll be on tour beginning next month in support of their new album #StonerProblems, check them out when they pop in near you:

This summer, Kiassik will be releasing his new album called Seasons and you may have a slice of the full cake or pie by checking out “STAGESlayer”, which has been turned into a video directed by Nick Drew. If you’re not aware of what Milwaukee hip-hop sounds like, may Klassik be your formal introduction.
Blueprint is about to release a new album called King No Crown and from it is a song he wrote and recorded in honor of the late Micheal Larsen, who is more familiar as rapper Eyedea. “Great Eyedeas Never Die” explains why he is special not only to hip-hop, but to friends who considered him more than just a rapper, but as an associate. If you want an autographed copy of the record or CD, you can pre-order it directly from Blueprint by heading here. The song is available as a free download by clicking here. MP3 version of the album can be pre-ordered below through Amazon.
The video by Du Blonde’s “Black Flag” may be initially trippy at first but while some of the weird imagery may be trippy, you then realize you’re a bit caught up in how this song sounds. It’s rock with a slight PJ Harvey tinge, but vocalist Beth Jeans Houghton has her own vibe too. She went out to Joshua Tree in the Mojave desert to shoot the video with the direcor who also happens to be her mom, Christine Jeans, which means she was very comfortable in doing some of the dance moves seen here. THe song will find its way on the Welcome Back To Milk album due out on May 18th.
Apparenmtly, the press release for this video says there is a “instrumental hip-hop scene” and AF The Naysayer is an “up-and-coming voice” in it. A scene? I was not aware but regardless of what this scene actually means, he makes some very good music that can be fitting for a wide range of music. I guess if you’re into target marketing, call it whatever you want in order for it to be heard and be noticed. Find out the identity of his “Status” right here and if you like it, contact him and work with him in the future for a project.
Art Of Anarchy will be releasing their self-titled album very soon on Century Media, if you like your hard rock and heavy metal on the Queensrÿche/Alice In Chains/Dokken vibe of life, check out their video for “‘Til The Dust Is Gone”. It has a lot of melody and textures, somethings that will appeal to those who like their metal with a good amount of protein.
Michigan rapper James Gardin has shared an in-studio performance video of his song “Problems”, taken from his Living Daylights album so if you’re someone who enjoys a potentially good song associated with visuals that aren’t egotistical, you may press play now.
