Married couple Remy Ma & Papoose share the official video for their new record ‘CC’, which is short for clout chaser. In both of their verses, the couple gives plenty of vivid examples of clout chasing individuals. Consider it a less commercial version of Cardi B and Offset’s chart-climbing single ‘Clout’.
Is it me or do the DJs play Cardi B’s verse only when you’re at the club or a networking function? Back in 2015, I interviewed Papoose for RESPECT Magazine. You can read it via this link if you like.
Keeping it as New York, as usual, local recording artist Rome Streetz shares a new tale about the street life, earning how you’re able to, and extortion. Personally, I liked the references to Buju’s ‘Destiny’ and Boo Boo (50 Cent’s ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin”). Watch the graffiti-filled visual for the Sadhugold below.

In a fun new song called ‘Company’, fellow Bronx-native recording artists Remy Ma and A Boogie wit da Hoodie rap about making money, assets, and the end of relationships. Watch the video below.
Katori Walker – Ignorance (Personal)
If you’re looking to have a broken heart today by facing reality, Katori Walker’s outstanding music video for ‘Ignorance’ is bound to make you feel a way. Lastly, rest in peace to Ormoni, a young man pictured at the end of the video, who lost his life last year. Please, watch until the end.
Yizzy – BAP (Personal)
Yizzy, a teenaged British recording artist who formerly went as ‘Young Yizzy’, just released the official video for ‘BAP’.

In April, one of the biggest public figures to come out of Lima, Ohio—Hodgie—released an outstanding video for “Caution.” The lead single from the entertainer’s latest seven-track EP (Street Lights) features fellow Ohioan Lil Bizzy and begs opposers to be careful. Watch the Khil Datta-directed video below.
Cardi B – Bodak Yellow (Personal)
On the night of the BET Awards, Bronx’s latest star Cardi B debuted her video for “Bodak Yellow.” When she isn’t entertaining us all on social media, she makes catchy street anthems. Watch the flamboyant video filmed in Dubai below.
A$AP Ferg – East Coast featuring Remy Ma (Personal)
Speaking of The Bronx and the talented women from the borough, Remy Ma joins Harlem-bred rapper A$AP Ferg for the anthemic “East Coast.” Personally, I think Remy Ma looks great; Her verse is stupendous. It’s no wonder she won this year’s BET Award for ‘Best Hip-Hop Female.’
Tyler, The Creator – Who Dat Boy (Submitted)
Leave it to Tyler, The Creator to bring the ratchet-crazy back to the screen. Lately, he and A$AP Rocky have been hanging out. Something tells me they are good friends. Watch Tyler sway and harmonize like Pharrell.
Kali Uchis – Tyrant featuring Jorja Smith (Personal)
In a fantastic pink trench coat, Kali Uchis sings about eye contact, love, and disappearing like El Chapo. Equally, Jorja Smith comes through in a swirly outfit. Watch the sweet new video for the Division production below.
New on the R&B scene is New Jersey-native Audrey Rose. Born Natalie Marie, she honors her late mother (Audrey) and the 70’s Thriller “Audrey Rose” to create her stage name. Paying homage to legends in the game, “Ice Cream” takes inspiration from Wu-Tang’s own Raekwon’s “Ice Cream” (Yes this was the golden era).
With her debut mixtape Chapter One: Guns & Roses out now, the vibe takes you back to the 90’s. Collaborations with New York City-natives Jadakiss in “Used To Be”, Troy Ave in “That Love”, and Manolo Rose in “Breakfast In Dresses” shows this young lady is respecting the culture.
“Ice Cream” also shows gratitude from the one and only Remy Ma (She killed the intro). Remy Ma spits fire, referencing her personal life and commanding her evolution in the game. Fetty Wap is also featured on the track, as he continues to warm our souls with the signature R&B / Trap vocals. The video opens up with a hard/soft play. while catering to what Audrey Rose represents. This girl is more than a voice, and we are here to support her story.
