Tony Alabama – Russian Kreme (Submission)
Before we get into how a special of a place Atlanta is, did you see the FBI warning at the beginning of the video? That should tell you that young rapper Tony Alabama is a problem. ‘Russian Kreme’ features the usual topics in Urban Contemporary Music about earning money (illegally), inescapable rivals and relations with women (who have to ‘get with the team’ or they aren’t accepted, or women who are good at fellatio). Check out the debut video for the intense teen below produced by Pierre Bourne & AjTheBeatmaker.
Chyna Streetz – Baddie (Submission)
There comes a time in life when we all have to grow up. Aligning yourself with the help, unfortunately, doesn’t get you to where you will need to be to make a significant difference in your life. Luckily, Chyna Streetz learned the following concept early. In the video, as she tortures a man with some friends in a bedroom, she details what it takes to be a boss: Affiliating yourself with other bosses.
Mighty Mark & TT the Artist – Give Em What They Want (Submission)
Inspired by the origins of Hip-Hop music by showcasing breakdancing and donning Adidas gear and long box braids (also popularised in North America during the birth of Hip-Hop), TT the Artist details the irony of being accepted by gatekeepers (blogs and record labels), making artists second-guess their worth and value. Best known for their involvement in pushing the Baltimore Club music scene forward, Mighty Mark & TT the Artist have made a name for themselves. From working with Diplo to their music appearing in HBO’s ‘Insecure’, it’s only a matter of time before their official crossover. In the meantime, check out the official video for ‘Give Em What They Want’. The track is out now on ‘The Bmix’.
Izzie Gibbs – Little Snitch (Submission)
Controlled energy is the name of the game. Luckily, singer-rapper Izzie Gibbs has a lot of it. The British-Jamaican rapper’s forthcoming EP, &rlquo;96LS’ is a six-track introduction into his brash illustrative world. With the likes of Stefflon Don and Stormzy parading his name, and Red Bull premiering his music videos, he is one to watch. ‘Little Snitch’ is a song ‘for the people out there who can’t keep their mouth shut’, says the Northampton-native entertainer. Watch the video for the ‘96LS’ single below.
Fabian Secon – Bandz No Sleep featuring Felix Dicey (Submission)
All of us will draw inspiration from one another, all the time. However, what sets us apart from the others is how well we execute our work. That’s what sets Fabian Secon apart from his competitors. Whenever I hear material from him, it is handled by a skilled music professional. I can tell. My ears have yet to fail me. Furthermore, each line is carefully crafted and laid with rhythmic precision. The same applies to ‘Bandz No Sleep’. What both gentlemen are saying on the track isn’t ‘new’, but it is how they deliver on the Jens Ole Mccoy production. It is masterful. Moreover, and the hook has the nerve to be delicious. Come on, now. Watch the official video directed by Mark Stenlid & Mikkel Stenlid below.
