[VIDEO] Stalley feat Scarface – ‘Swangin’

Stalley-Swangin-Video-1

When we spoke to Stalley back in March, when his new single “Swangin” dropped, he was hoping that the song had enough “legs” to make it as a summer anthem. Dropping the visuals in early July will certainly help keep the buzz going.

The Maybach Music Group kid recruited the rest of his team to fill the streets with a wide variety of chromed-out cars like the Bentley Brooklands, Cadillac CTS, an old-school Camaro, and older Cadillacs, as well. He even gotPaul Wall to take the wheel! Of course, Stalley also heavily reps Cleveland, with his “Ohio is for Lovers” shirt and Browns jersey.

Los Angeles emcee Rappinismyhabit is back with another great composition. Still riding the high of his first release ‘HipiDega,’ this EP shows so much more in terms of content, delivery, and soul. MoBlackWatah LP is a wholesome blend of introspect, and social commentary along side some dope beats. Check it out below!

[MUSIC] Ray Jr. feat Problem – ‘Champagne Spillin’

MoGUsOx

 

Ray Jr. is back today with something brand new and highly infectious called “Champagne Spillin’”. The track is a rather smooth joint that finds Ray linking up with west coast MC, Problem, for something incredibly dope and addictive.

“Champagne Spillin’” is driven by some interesting melodic elements that give off a west coast feel and get matched up with some hard hitting drums that the fellas do their thing upon. This shit is too cold, check it out after the jump.

[VIDEO] @RealTalkRaps – ‘Memoirs Of A Modern-Day Griot’, Episode 2: ‘The Opening Act’

image-1

There’s nothing like an independent artist on their grind. This is just another example of hard work and dedication in motion. Take a look into the day Real T@lk opened for Big Boi + Killer Mike on 5/1/13 at Park West in Chicago, IL for The Shoes For Running World Tour.

Inspiration/Meaning: A griot (pronounced gree-oh or gree-ot) is a West African travelling historian, storyteller, praise singer, poet and/or musician. The griot is a keeper of oral tradition. Real T@lk identifies as a griot; not only is he an artist, but he’s African-American. Most African-Americans are descendants of slaves that were originally taken from West Africa, hence… “Memoirs Of A Modern-Day Griot“. This is the first episode of an ongoing documentary that gives a glimpse of a modern-day griot’s journey and the individuals that he or she may encounter along the way. Enjoy!
