This week’s #5NewVideos list consists of Lil’ Waah, MC Fizzy, Travis Scott, and more.
Lil’ Waah – Dab N Dip (Submitted)
Last week, I interviewed the new generation of Ruff Ryders: one of the greatest independent record labels from the late eighties. Honestly, as I think about where I am in the grand scheme of this business–it makes perfect sense. After launching the careers of two amazing children of music celebrities, speaking to Lil’ Waah was fate. Growing up, I admired and studied the greats. Lil’ Waah, son of Joaquin “Waah” Dean, is carrying the torch with Ruff Ryders Indy. His sound is of the times and rightfully different than the label’s classic releases. Watch the video below, and get familiar with the 14-year-old Ruff Ryders Indy artist. Swizz Beatz’s first cousin has been at it for at least three years. He has a freestyle to Bobby Shmurda’s infamous “Hot N*gga.”
MC Fizzy “Trap Trap Trap” (Personal)
As Grime continues to impress North Americans and influence them to talk with British accents, I’m just happy it finally translated. More than one thousand years ago, I was introduced to the style, and have been in love since. As I showed SBTV to a friend over the weekend, I saw the official for MC Fizzy’s “Trap Trap Trap.” Instantly, the instrumental made me dance. Hopefully, it does the same to you. Watch the Lewi London-direction below.
Aminé “REDMERCEDES” (Personal)
After the mainstream success of “Caroline,” which I wrote about a year ago, Aminé released a follow-up record. Watch the hilarious new video below. You’ll find the Portland-native rapper and his friends decked out in stereotypical glory.
Betty Who “Mama Say” (Personal)
Pop music with attitude is the popular music for me. Sydney, Australia-native singer-songwriter Betty Who’s “Mama Say” embodies that for me. The song is from the RCA recording artist’s new thirteen track album, “The Valley.” Watch the video with the simple yet cute choreography below.
Travis Scott “goosebumps” featuring Kendrick Lamar (Personal)
If “goosebumps” doesn’t get an award (or nominated for one), I don’t know what will. I can say that everytime I get in the car, I hear Travis Scott’s song. Watch the grim visual for the Kendrick Lamar collaboration.
