Evidence - Throw It All Away (Video)

EV
Evidence

A little under a week ago, Evidence of Dilated Peoples released a new video for the track "Throw It All Away". Over a stripped back beat from Alchemist, EV ponders on how money comes and goes. 

Although no album has been announced as yet, Rhymesayers have apparently confirmed there will be a new LP from Evidence this year. 2017 also marks the ten year anniversary since his first solo outing, The Weatherman LP.

Watch the video for "Throw It All Away" below and get your coy of the single here.

Apollo Brown & Skyzoo - Nodding Off (Video)

APS
Skyzoo and Apollo Brown

Apollo Brown and Skyzoo dropped one of the best albums released last year with "The Easy Truth". They continue to promote the LP with a video for the album's closing track "Nodding Off". Joining them in the video is Sean Taylor who provides the breezy trumpet throughout.

Watch the visual below and be sure to check the album on Mello Music Group.


Dave East - It Was Written (Video)

DE
Dave East

Harlem's Dave East continues his roll out of visuals from his recent project "Kairi Chanel" with the video for "It Was Written". 

I'm pretty confident that 2017 is the year Dave East catches more ears with his music. An obvious standout from last year's XXL Freshman Class, his already stacked back catalogue and his massive co-sign by Nas are just a few things weighing in his favour.

Check the video below and be sure to check his other music too. "Kairi Chanel" is available to buy and stream here.

Jamiroquai - Automaton (Video)

Jamiroquai
Jay Kay

After a long hiatus, Jamiroquai return with a video for the title track off the upcoming album "Automaton". Despite the obvious futurism of the song (and visual), it thankfully isn't a massive departure from the band's usual sound that their fan base came to love and it's great to hear Jay Kay's unmistakable vocals again. It'll be interesting to hear what the rest of the project sounds like on its release March 31st.

Papoose - Back On My Bullshit ft. Fat Joe & Jaquae (Video)

Papoose
Fat Joe and Papoose

Papoose's new project "Hoodie Season 3" is incoming so he drops the banger "Back On My Bullshit". Joined on the track by one time enemy Fat Joe with a verse and newcomer Jaquae on the hook, Papoose blacks out quite frankly. Definitely underrated despite the work he's put in since the 90's.

Check the Eif Rivera visual below.

Alicia Keys - Blended Family (What You Do For Love) feat. A$AP Rocky (Video)

AK
Alicia Keys

A week after the release of her latest album "Here", Alicia Keys drops the video to her single "Blended Family". After the messy to start to her relationship with husband Swizz Beatz and the fallout with his previous partner Mashonda, it seems like they've all managed to co-exist for the sake of their kids.

Assisted with a verse from A$AP Rocky about his own upbringing within a busy household, Ms. Keys delivers a great video with a lovely sentiment.

Check the video below. The new album is available everywhere now.

Anderson .Paak - Come Down (Video)

AP
Anderson .Paak

Despite the relative success of his "Malibu" album, Anderson .Paak hasn't gone overboard with the visuals to accompany it. Here we have his second music video from the LP for "Come Down".

This Hi-Tek produced funk banger definitely delivers on the vision I had in my head, even if it's over before you know it. A great video for a personal standout from the album. 

Check the video below and listen to "Malibu" in full if you haven't already.

Dr. Syntax & Pete Cannon - Downtime (Video)

DT
Dr. Syntax

After a busy summer on the festival circuit with The Mouse Outfit, Dr. Syntax returns with his partner in crime, Pete Cannon, with their new project "The Tonic EP". Their first single and video from the EP is "Downtime".

Synners walks the streets of Manchester pondering on the big wide world that's out there and how most of us are trapped in the system like caged animals. Everyone needs a break from the cycle!

Check the video below, shot and edited by Ellis Meade, and then be sure to cop the new EP which is available now over at Bandcamp. Also, the pair are on tour starting this month so be on the look out for a local date near you.

CoZ
DRS, Tyler Daley and Konny Kon
After seeing an official release of one of the biggest tunes of the year with "Still Standing" on First Word Records, Children Of Zeus return with the remix. Not content with the praise they already received in soul and Hip Hop circles, this remix opens them up to a whole new market.

Liquid producer Lenzman takes the reins on this with an added verse from the mighty DRS to take this beautiful re-imagining over the edge. All this comes complete with a second video for the track which you can check out below.

This track will live on Lenzman's upcoming "All For You" EP which is due for release on the 23rd of September. Pre-orders get you this track instantly via The North Quarter.  Alternatively, head to iTunes for the digital release.

Suicide Squad: The Music Videos

SS
Rick Ross and The Joker in the video for Purple Lamborghini


The build up to the release of DC's next movie in the extended cinematic universe has been one of the most rampant campaigns we've seen for a long time. Suicide Squad has had numerous trailers, TV spots and extended character profiles since the teaser of the film a year ago at San Diego Comic Con.

Another route Warner Bros has taken, which is often neglected these days, is the accompanying musical soundtrack. Made up of a majority of new music and a few covers, there have already been four music videos released. Two of these dropped in the same week in June, the third on the day the movie hit cinemas and the fourth a few days later.

The videos so far are from twenty one pilots with "Heathens", Ty Dolla $ign, Logic, Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Imagine Dragons and X Ambassadors with "Sucker For Pain", Skrillex and Rick Ross with "Purple Lamborghini" and Kehlani with "Gangsta".

All the tracks feature in the actual movie and for the most part fit extremely well, showing that some thought was put in to the compilation. Jared Leto even reprises his take on The Joker in the video for "Purple Lamborghini". Watch all four videos below. We may even see more. Who knows?

Joey Bada$$ - Devastated (Video)

JB
Joey Bada$$


A couple of months after the release of his crossover hit "Devastated", Joey Bada$$' team release a video montage of his live performances of the track. From the thoughts of never making it to where his success has taken him now, it's fair to say that this is a feel good song if there ever was one. It's a little different from his previous boom bap efforts but is still a great track.

Check the video below and make sure you get your copy of the song on iTunes. I've also added his live appearance on SKEE TV from a few weeks back.

Bishop Lamont - Back Up Off Me feat. Xzibit (Video)

Bishop Lamont and Xzibit

A few months after the release of his single "Back Up Off Me" with Xzibit, Bishop Lamont drops the video to the track.

Bishop Lamont has dropped a number of single releases so far this year but it also promises to be the year that his highly anticipated album "The Reformation" arrives. It's been a LONG wait.

Watch the video below and download this track and more over on his Soundcloud page.

Torii Wolf - 1st (Remix) feat. Dilated Peoples (Video)

To accompany this remix is a new video featuring Dilated Peoples and a brief introduction to how the remix came about.

You can expect Torii's full album to be released soon produced exclusively by DJ Premier. The single and this remix are both available on iTunes. Watch the video beneath.

Chalk - An Ode To The KP (Video)

Chalk
Chalk - Growth album cover

Relocating to Thailand late last year has by no means stopped the musical output from Chalk of The Natural Curriculum. Definitely not, as the new solo album "Growth" has arrived. The first single to be lifted from the project and given a video is "An Ode To The KP". 

The track is a dedication to kitchen porters and minimum wagers who are living cheap and doing what they need to do to keep money in their pocket. I'm sure we can all relate!

Check the video below and go to Bandcamp for the album.

Children Of Zeus - Still Standing (Video)

CoZ
Konny Kon and Tyler Daley

After what seems like years of dropping free music on Soundcloud, Konny Kon and Tyler Daley aka Children Of Zeus finally release the visuals to their first single on First Word Records. "Still Standing" is on one side of the recently released vinyl. 

Manchester soul and Hip Hop at its best that should definitely be supported. You can get yourself a copy of the vinyl including "Still Standing" and "No Strings Attached" through First Word Records now. 

Check the video below and get yourself the music here.
