Hive Mind Collective emcee Daimon Miles drops his first music video, “Young Noah.” “Young Noah,” is the perfect introduction to what talent the Hamilton emcee can bring to the game. From the jump, Miles lets the listeners know that he is a student of the game, and is looking to bring back that thought provoking hip hop that the heads are searching for. The opening lines alone sum up the state of hip hop today; and this dude is looking to shake things up. Miles and the HMC are a team to keep your eyes on.

The Weeknd books a hotel room for himself and a few close friends for this latest video, “Often.” Here we see The Weeknd croon about sex, smoke good and entertain guest before he is taken away for some private time with a P.Y.T; a typical weekend for the Toronto singer. Be sure to check this video out, and leave your thoughts below.
Devonté “Dev” Hynes also known as Blood Orange and is a British singer, composer, songwriter, producer and author. I was recently watching James Franco’s latest film, Palo Alto and was blown away by the movies sound track; I did some research and found that the majority of the songs I liked came from this artist. Devonte’s soulful, funky style is a timeless sound that you can’t help but grove too. “Your Not Good Enough,” is a track off the second album by Blood Orange titled, Cupid Deluxe. Watching this video, all i can think is that Prince and the other funk acts of the 80′s must be proud to see that their genre of music is still alive, and thriving. Between albums, Hynes has written and produced music for the likes of Solange, Sky Ferreira, MKS, and more. I definitely see this cat blowing up. Take in this track and let us know what you think.
Action Bronson has released his latest set of visuals for “Easy Rider,” produced by Party Supplies. Directed by Tom Gould, the cinematic-film finds Bronson in the hospital before hitting the open road on a motorcycle. His escapade continues to spiral out of control as he takes a hit of acid, gets involved in a bar brawl, and eludes the authorities. If that wasn’t enough, the video ends with an epic Les Paul guitar solo on top of a mountain peak. His forthcoming album, Mr. Wonderful is coming soon.
