RARE Nation recording artist AF Rome provides some visuals for his new track, "Forties." Gearing up for his debut project, *The Application*, Romero lets go the feel-good, Mark Parker-produced party record which is perfect timing for college students headed back for the fall semester. Romero's easy going personality and clever rhymes shine throughout the track.
Seattle rapper Nissim, formerly known as D.Black before his recent conversion to Orthodox Judaism, kept getting the same feedback about today's hip-hop: "I kept hearing from a lot of people, 'I'm tired of rap,' or, 'I don't even listen to music like that, I don't want my kids hearing it,' and so on. It seemed like everyone was becoming more critical of the messages commonly pushed in music today. So as an artist I felt it appropriate to say that even as a consumer, 'we are tired!'"

Only those who go through life's struggles and hardships can truly come from the bottom and learn to appreciate the good life. Such is the case with Brooklyn native Gliffics, who debuts his video for "We Take The Night," the first installment of his four part visual series.
