MP3: Rockwell Knuckles - "Play Catch"

Just last year Rockwell Knuckles burst onto the scene with the release of Choose Your Own Adventure, a project that garnered the budding St. Louis emcee critical both acclaim and droves of fans. Since then, as those fans eagerly awaited a follow-up project Rockwell has been hard at work in the studio – not to mention performing on stages alongside Lupe Fiasco, Pac Div, BIG K.R.I.T.,J. Cole, GZA, Yelawolf, and more – and he's emerged stocked and loaded with a plethora of forthcoming projects. First up will be Rockwell's highly anticipated full-length album, sporting the bellicose title You're Fucking Out, I'm Fucking In, an album he'll be following soon after with Take Me To Your Leader, all to be released through Mech Industries LLC.

The latest single from YFOIFI, "Play Catch," succeeds magnificently at what other rappers are often too incompetent, or just plain bad, at doing – calling out clones, endlessly chasing the looks and sounds they see around them and in the media. Produced by Ryan McNeely, the track boasts a thumping bass line, but beyond that lies a spacey anthem that sports flaring horns and chopped, hazy vocal samples. "The clones/ Who get scared to roam/ From home/ Cause home is all they've ever really known," sings Rockwell on the song's chorus, continuing, "They feel so alone/ Until they find more clones." In writing lyrics for the track, Rockwell explains, "So many people spend their entire existence under false pretenses, and it can become sickening if you are aware of it. My message was to posers: 'You're living a lie.'"

Video: The Unspeakable Chilly Gonzales Medley

What do a volcano, a werewolf, a talking bust and a shark have in common? The new Chilly Gonzales video, obviously! Only the self-proclaimed musical genius of Gonzo would be able to tie together all these amazing visuals into one story for the medley of his upcoming orchestral rap album The Unspeakable Chilly Gonzales out this Summer courtesy of Arts & Crafts. 
 
Accompanied by Hollywood style swells, tympani rolls, noble French horns, hypnotizing bells and influenced by Prokofiev, Morricone and Phillip Glass, this record is Chilly Gonzales’ professional confessional, revealing more of himself on these monologues than ever before. In addition to his “Gonzipiration” of the rap game, the lush arrangements found on The Unspeakable Chilly Gonzales were done by his Hollywood-film composing brother Christophe Beck, whose film credits include The Hangover, The Pink Panther and Under the Tuscan Sun, as well as his Emmy Award-winning work for the cult TV show “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”

From Audible Treats:

Video: Kreayshawn - "Gucci Gucci"

Rapper, director, DJ, swag assassin, under-cat – all of these titles, and more, are mentioned by Kreayshawn when asked to self-describe. And you know what? They're all true. She's a former film student who's shot videos for the likes of Lil' B and had her work recognized by Diplo; she counts everyone from Andy Milonakis to Soulja Boy, Das Racist, and Good Charlotte front man Joel Madden amongst her biggest fans; she's homies with the guys of Odd Future. But more than all of that, she's Kreayshawn, a pint-sized beast of an artist (with enough style and charisma to charm a room the moment she steps through the door), who just so happens to be a tad bit unlike anything you've ever seen or heard before.

Accomplishments aplenty, Kreayshawn has been putting the final touches on her soon-to-be-titled new album, but first comes the release of her latest – and greatest – video, this one for "Gucci Gucci." The song is latest single from her forthcoming album, which will be released this summer and preceded by a mixtape she's currently working on in conjunction with streetwear brand The Hundreds.

The production on "Gucci Gucci," courtesy of DJ Two Stacks, drives the song forward, centered around beating drums and a wobbling, warbling synth bass line that plays perfectly underneath Kreayshawn's slight nasal tone and sharp vocal quips. "Gucci, Gucci, Louie, Louie, Fendi, Fendi, Prada/ Basic bitches wear that shit, so I don't even bother," she raps atop a vocal sample ("one big room, full of bad bitches") pulled from her previous single "Bumpin' Bumpin'," a song with over 150,000 YouTube views. And while the video, which was directed by Joseph Zentil of Strange Customs and has garnered over 45,000 views since premiering at TheFADER.com yesterday, is a feel good affair – "The best part was just kicking it, really, acting out on Rodeo Drive," remarks Kreayshawn, who spends time donning pink mouse ears and a nose ring that connects to her ear throughout – there's still a message behind the madness. "The song is about giving girls the power to dress away from the label brands like Gucci and Louie," explains Kreayshawn, who wrote the song after being surrounded by peers who defined themselves by the brands they wore. "It's about being more in-tune with your own style." It's a message that Kreayshawn, more than most, is qualified to share.
