Video: Rewd Adams & Last Skeptik - "Everything's OK"


From 730 Promo:

Video: Rewd Adams & Last Skeptik - "Everything's OK"

Everything's OK is the new single from rapper Rewd Adams and DJ/producer The Last Skeptik, and taken from their stupendously anticipated forthcoming album ‘How Not To Make A Living’.  There is no other way to describe ‘Everything’s OK’ apart from ‘massive’. It is a 120bpm behemoth-like banger of a track with the undeniable bounce of Outkast and a hook so infectious you may have to apply some anti-bac gel to your mind after listening to it. The song brings an industrial vat full of vibes in an ode to what could be a woman, but could also be a metaphor for Rewd’s love of writing. Listen closely and decide for yourselves, you clever people.

Video: Rockie Fresh - "Into the Future"

Today, Chicago MC Rockie Fresh premiered a music video for the song "Into The Future" off his latest release Driving 88. The Nem Perez directed music video is the third visual off Driving 88 following "How We Do" that features King Louie and "No Fear."  "Into The Future" picks up where "How We Do" left off, recreating classic scenes from the Back To The Future movie trilogy. This clip shows an updated Chicago take on Marty McFly's time-travel escapades including the clock-tower, a tricked out Delorean, Nike Air Mags and more.  "How We Do" saw the recreation of the Biff & Marty McFly feuds and this is a continuation of the saga. We hope you enjoy it.

Video: SL Jones x DJ Burn One - "D.A.R.E."


From Audible Treats:

Video: SL Jones x DJ Burn One - "D.A.R.E."

Earlier this year, SL Jones and DJ Burn One announced the forthcoming release of a collaborative EP, Paraphernalia. Since the announcement, the Little Rock rapper and Atlanta producer have grown the EP into a full-length mixtape (still titled Paraphernalia), which will be released as a free download for fans in the coming weeks. Today, to celebrate the new announcement, SL Jones & DJ Burn One are excited to release the debut visual from Paraphernalia, "D.A.R.E."

The song, which serves as the intro track from Paraphernalia, is a tone-setter for the project, and the title of the song, an acronym for "Do Anything, Risk Everything," is an out-the-gate statement for a project that continues to show the Little Rock rapper getting more personal and reflective in his music. "Daring to dream, you have to sacrifice so much; you face doubt, adversity, and fear of failure," remarks SL. "You want it so bad that you're willing to almost do anything and risk everything to achieve it."

The video for "D.A.R.E.," directed and edited by Red Audio, keeps it simple with a black and white visual that adds power to the song's lyrics. "I wanted to keep the visuals subtle but honest," explains SL. "DJ Burn One's beat is so raw, so the video really accents the music and compliments the lyrics."

From Matt B:

Video: Chuuwee - "Glorious Revolution"

Chuuwee’s Crown Me King will serve as the prelude to his long-awaited official solo-debut, Wild Style, which will be released on 5-29-2012 via Amalgam Digital. Whereas Chuuwee’s previous efforts were hybrid sub-genres he created such as “neo-boombap” (neo-soul meets boom-bap) or “hooliganarism” which Chuuwee describes as Treach of Naughty By Nature meets Wakka Flakka Flame, Wild Style can be summarized as pure 90s Hip Hop, where he is taking the classic elements of the golden era with the look, sound and the feel and then applying them to the present day. Inspired by Gang Starr, A Tribe Called Quest, Big L, De La Soul with even hints of DMX, Wild Style promises to be Chuuwee’s break-out project, one that will showcase him as being a frontrunner lyricist from Hip-Hop’s new school; while also paying homage and respect to the great pioneers of the 1990’s. “Wild Style is the album that’s going to eradicate weak rap off the face of the map. It is the return of real Hip-Hop. It’s pure and it’s not me trying to re-make it. It’s not me telling you its 90s Hip-Hop; it is 90s Hip-Hop” says Chuuwee.
