New Video: Rome Fortune feat. Jungle Pussy & Relly Jade – “Payin For It”

Directed by Goodwin, this clip for Rome Fortune, Jungle Pussy, and Relly Jade's "Payin For It" is a bit confusing. Two actors play, essentially, Rome, before Rome himself appears. Jungle Pussy and Relly Jade are also played by multiple women who aren't them. To top it all off, we seem to have a...

New Video: Mick Jenkins – “Jazz”

We've been excited about Mick Jenkins ever since we stumbled upon last year's Trees & TruthsLP. This release of "Jazz" a new single and video from the rapping Chicago monk is the best indication we've had so far that the upcoming The Water[s]is going to surpass what we'd previously hoped for....

New Video: Scotty ATL feat. Killer Mike & Trouble – “Pray Alone”

This is one hell of a chest-thumper. Rising undergrounder Scotty ATL recruits the always-dope Killer Mike and warbling Trouble for "Pray Alone," an anthem aimed at those who hated and doubted.

New Video: DJ Mustard Feat. 2 Chainz & Ty Dolla $ign – “Down On Me”

Just look at those faces. How can you be mad at these guys for having a little (or a lot) of fun? DJ Mustard crafts yet another unique but of-his-style clapper and clicker and makes a video where, like all other summer blockbusters, we get what we knew was coming to us: smoke, dancing, crisp...

New Video: Leather Corduroys – “Irie Trill Vibes”

We've lowkey had the Leather Cords' Porno Music Volume IIon repeat for a minute. Though we would've maybe preferred a video for the absolutely bonkers "Nightmare On Chicago Ave," this crisp clip for "Irie Trill Vibes" will do for the moment. Somewhat iPod commercial inspired, we watch Joey Purple...
