Durham, NC representer Defacto Thezpian uses the visuals to his Chicks & Rhymes Vol. 3 single to provide some commentary on homelessness in America. Real dope concept. The video is directed by Johnny J. Jones for Zoë Pictures. Defacto Chicks & Rhymes Vol. 3 mixtape drops February 28.
The Seahawks and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis aren’t the only ones winning in Seattle. J. Pinder is an artist I’ve followed for 2+ years now, and recently the emcee has garnered attention and a cosign from Dr. Dre. He may be under your radar for now, but that might not be the case for most by the time 2014 is up. Here is a single from Pinder produced by Vitamin D, who’s consistently dope himself. Not sure is this is just a loose track or set to appear on an upcoming project, but wither way it’s here for you to enjoy.
I’ve never heard one word from UGLYFRANK previously, but Fader premiered this joint and I just happened to come upon on social media. UGLYFRANK represents Tacoma, Washington and a budding crew named ILLFIGHTYOU. The track is interesting, different, and dope. From the querky (toy?) sample, to his fast singsong flow, this song is intriguing and left me happy a curious moment came upon me and I hit play. This serves as the first single off of UGLYFRANK’s upcoming BOBBY HILL EP.
Blitz the Ambassador is a triple threat. He’s got great record, a world-class live show, and he’s a great dude as well. Here he connects with his frequently collaborator on production, Optiks, for this single off of Blitz’s long-anticipated (at least around these parts) LP Afropolitan Dreams, which is coming March 25. You can learn more about Blitz in my exclusive interview with him from awhile back.
Since I’ve been riding with their single “Shine” off of the same Come As You Are mixtape that features “Turn Down”, I’d like to share the visuals for the California duo’s anti-”turn up” anthem. The latter half of the video also comes with a little surprise. For a little background, Audio Push is producer Hit Boy’s (Ni**az in Paris, etc.) rising act on his HS87 label. They had a solid second half of 2013, and 2014 is poised to be a great one for the energetic pair with a lot of chemistry.
