Video: Rapid Ric - "Leanin" feat. A3, Craig G, ESG


From Audible Treats:

Video: Rapid Ric - "Leanin" feat. A3, Craig G, ESG

Rapid Ric is back with his latest video, this one for the song, "Leanin." Like the majority of the tracks off his forthcoming debut album, Whut It Dew, being released via Dew Music Group for free download on July 12th, this single features a collection of esteemed MCs: A3, ESG, and Craig G. Not only was Ric the mastermind behind "Leanin", but he also decided to get behind the camera for his first stint as a video director.

As to be expected for a track titled "Leanin," the video is replete with one of the scene's staples, Styrofoam cups (in this case covered with airbrushed drawings memorializing deceased artists from the area including Pimp C and Big Moe) filled to the brim with Drank. "I'm leaning, leaning like man," goes the chorus. "Baby, I'm so dirty, but I'm riding so clean." Helping to keep the mood light, also, are a few obligatory strip club and car shots, and Rapid Ric, himself, playing the roll of a nerdy pharmacist, who quickly transforms back into his regular DJ'ing self after taking a sip.

Video: Co$$ - "Spaceman"


From Nora Ritchie:

Video: Co$$ - "Spaceman"

Yesterday, Co$$ debuted the video for "Spaceman," the first single from his debut album Before I Awoke over at XXL. Today, he unleashes it to the world. The video is performance-based with shots of Co$$ in his neighborhood Leimert Park and high in the hills of Los Angeles as the sun sets. The track is set over a rapidly moving jazz sample and has no chorus, a testament to the strength of Co$$ as a lyricist.

Watch Co$$ - "Spaceman" HERE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PsNPOPFEXb0 .

"Spaceman" digital single is out on iTunes on May 31st and his full length debut album Before I Awoke is out on June 21st via Tres Records.

Before I Awoke is a very personal project that Co$$ painstakingly worked on for 3 years. The title represents Co$$' awakening from a haze of sleepwalking through life. On the album he throws out think piece after think piece on the state of his relationships, creative expression, dreams, his father's passing, lost lovers and more. Co$$' lyrics cut deep with a sense of poetic urgency that is both reflective and brutally honest. Album features include Aloe Blacc, Blu, Sene, and Shawn Jackson and production credits from Exile, Fonetik Simbol, J83, Cook Classics and more. Co$$ has previously, according to the Los Angeles Times, "quietly assassinated the few guest appearance he's been on." Co$$ was also featured on Fashawn's critically acclaimed Boy Meets World and Exile's album Dirty Science.
