Kreayshawn Reveals New Single and Video for "Go Hard"

Rapper, videographer, and artist Kreayshawn revealed the first official single and music video for the song "Go Hard" from her forthcoming debut album, Somethin 'Bout Kreay. The song personifies Kreayshawn's modus operandi to a tee; stay true to yourself and go hard at chasing your dreams.

Since announcing Somethin 'Bout Kreay earlier this summer, Kreayshawn has toured Europe, performing at the Hove Festival in Norway, the Rock Werchter Festival in Belgium, the Main Square Festival in France, the Pitch Festival in Holland and the Wireless Festival in the UK. While in the UK, Kreayshawn also celebrated the release of her new collaborative t-shirt with clothing brand A Bathing Ape.

Now back stateside, Kreayshawn is excited to release her new single "Go Hard." "With this track, I wanted to inspire people to just do their own thing," says Kreayshawn. Complete with breakdancing furries, fun outfits, and wild animation effects, "Go Hard" makes for a visual feast. "My favorite part about the video is that I always notice something different every single time I watch it. It's like going on a visual adventure." The "Go Hard" video is the brainchild of Kreayshawn in collaboration with design based collective Syndrome, who have created stunning videos for the likes of Eminem, Ke$ha and the Black Eyed Peas.

Kreayshawn's wild child lyricism is brought to life thanks to a full-bodied beat from Boys Noize, who produced a pair of songs on Somethin 'Bout Kreay. "Working with him was cool, because he's got a different style than what I'm typically drawn to," explains Kreayshawn. "He turned out this poppy, 90s-inspired beat with heavy bass and breakdowns, and I'm really into that."

Mixtape: Stu Bangas & Vanderslice - Brutal Blends

Earlier this month, producers Stu Bangas & Vanderslice announced their new collaborative album, Diggaz With Attitude. The album, being released August 28th via Man Bites Dog Records, will include features from Ill Bill, Vinnie Paz, Esoteric, Celph Titled, Blaq Poet, and just the other week, Stu & Vander released the video for the album's lead single, "The Gusto" which features Apathy, The Alchemist, Evidence, and Roc Marciano.

Today, Stu Bangas & Vanderslice, in conjunction with 2dopeboyz, are excited to give fans a pre-album mixtape, Brutal Blends. The mixtape, which includes a number of previously released tracks, in addition to a handful of blends courtesy of Dusty Gems, also features a collection of exclusive tracks, with features coming from Planet Asia, Wais P, Ill Bill, Vast Aire, Action Bronson, and more.

The tape was put together by Stu Bangas, who wanted to use the tape as a tool to point new fans back to some of the producers' previous work. "We wanted to release some songs we had produced that were under the radar," explains Stu Bangas, while Vander notes that it was actually the work of Dusty Gems that sparked the initial idea for the tape. "I saw that Dusty Gems was doing blends with beats that Stu and I had already released," he recalls. "From there, Dusty and Stu built the idea, and when they brought it to me, I thought it was interesting – something different."

Video/Album Stream: 40Love - "Tiki Tiki" f/ Zumbi (of Zion I)

Today, 40Love is excited to celebrate the release of their new album, Dreams Don't Sleep. The album, which is available through iTunes and can also be streamed in full via SoundCloud, is being released in conjunction with famed Bay Area skateboard brand FTC, with the two also coming together for a collaborative t-shirt that will be released in the coming weeks. Now, following a successful European tour – and with a hometown album/shirt release party at FTC's flagship store in San Francisco scheduled for August 11th – 40Love is releasing the video for "Tiki Tiki" featuring Zumbi of the legendary Bay duo Zion I.

The video, directed by John Coyne, is for the album's latest single, the mp3 of which the Bay Area group released last week. The video was shot in San Francisco's famed Chinatown district, a fitting choice for the visual, since, as 40Love recently noted, the song (including the track's hook and the Far East-inspired production) riffs off the classic children's story Tiki Tiki Tembo. If the song sounds familiar, it might be because you heard a sample of it used on the title track of Bassnectar's Wildstyle EP.

The group was also exited to work with Zion I emcee Zumbi. "It's been dope working with him because we all grew up bumpin' Zion I as a Bay classic," says 40Love. "Now, we've been able to build with him on shows and recordings - he's an inspiring artist in his performance, music and message." The song is a clever play on the children's story, Tiki Tiki Tembo, with the hook comprised of the very long ancient Chinese name used in the book. Tag-team producers Mikos and The Whooligan turned out a heavy, Far East-inspired beat for "Tiki Tiki," while Miss Haze, G-OFF, and Zumbi verbally dance all over it.
