From UrbanAddiction PR:

Video: Don Juan f/ Fatty Duke - "Crazy"

The lead single is off his forthcoming Millionaire Bound Records mixtape Nix 2 Bricks 2: No Love Straight Thugscheduled to drop May 29, "Crazy" insinuates Don Juan must be insane for parking an expensive foreign car outside of a ghetto corner store or for simply being on the wrong side of the tracks riding in a flashy car. On the up-tempo track, Don Juan and Fatty also put fake rappers' heads on the chopping block for falsely claiming to own things they don't have.

Video: AWAR - "Laws of Nature" (prod. Vanderslice)

Laws Of Nature produced by Vanderslice and directed by Puma serves as a warning shot as the Upstate NY/NYC representative continues to gather momentum in the jungle and gears up for the release his new album, Laws of Nature on August 7th, 2012. This particular cut is the last track off the recently released AWAR- Nature Of The Beast project and displays a Dre/Em or Gang Starr-esque chemistry with rising producer Vanderslice.

From Mello Music Group:

Video: Stik Figa - "Flaudgin'"

Take a spin through Topeka, Kansas with Stik Figa in his video for “Flaudgin,” a carefree joyride through the blue-collar Midwest. Sure, Stik can get on his MC ish when need be, he can kick a thought-provoking verse when the occasion calls for it, but the Midwest rhymer is just as comfortable crafting something smooth for you to ride to. “Flaudgin,” a standout cut from his Mello Music debut As Himself, is just that, music for the Cuttys, Regals, Chevys and ‘Prices that represent Stik’s native city. The title term is local slang for frontin’ or otherwise posturing, just like the weave-equipped woman who’s hair Stik calls out in the track, right after the former calls him out on his rented ride.

Video: TOPE - "Since the Last Time We Spoke" (@itstope)


From TOPE:

Video: TOPE - "Since the Last Time We Spoke"

We are really happy to announce that a brand new EP from TOPE releases 1 week from today! “Since The Last Time We Spoke” is the b-side follow up EP to the 2012 released “Until The Next Time We Meet”. TOPE delivered 19 tracks in working on the full length LP, but cutting the album down to 11 was difficult, as the so-called b-sides hold up quite well. The full length and the EP each stand on their own; but together “Until The Next Time We Meet”and “Since The Last Time We Spoke” represent an artist who cannot stop doing the work – and as one can hear, the work pays off…

Video: Illus - "The Gift" (@AdamWallenta @printmatic @ILLB1LL)


From Matt B:

Video: Illus f/Blueprint, Ill Bill & DJ Johnny Juice - "The Gift"

2012 promises to be a memorable year for Illus, as he and his wife recently welcomed the birth of their first child and his new project, Family First, (due to be released on 5-29-2012) focuses on the shared love of that experience to create 12-tracks that mend meaningful, powerful, heart-felt lyrics to hardcore Hip-Hop production. Family First is a celebration of family and life both in the literal sense and that of the larger global Hip-Hop community and the connection we all have through our children and the spirit, heart, passion and soul of the culture.
