[Video] Serge Severe ft. Jon Belz – “Rare Flow” (Dir: Sam Lingle)

This is the first I’ve heard of the Portland, Oregon emcee Serge Severe, but it sure won’t be the last. It may take a few listens to fully grasp all the witty lines and metaphors dude spits, but its sure worth it. Combined with some dope visuals via Sam Lingle, Rare Flow is definitely a must watch. Im going to leave it at that, so enjoy the video below!

[Album] Big K.R.I.T. – “Live From The Underground” (Stream)

Big K.R.I.T. is set to release his major-label album debut with Live From The Underground on June 5th. The Mississippi spitter first started turning heads with his mixtape Krit Wuz Here back in 2010. From there he went on to release a couple more ‘tapes most recently 4eva N a Day. K.R.I.T has come a long way and the success of his previous work is what has gotten us so amped for his debut album. Although it only officially drops in 8 days, the people at NPR have gotten the green light to stream Live From The Underground in its entirety for the public. As always, K.R.I.T. takes on all the production himself and calls on some friends for features which include Ludacris, 2 Chainz, 8Ball & MJG, Bun B, Melanie Fiona and more. Big K.R.I.T’s country flow and lyricism is in full force throughout the album, making this one a must listen. Shouts again to NPR for the stream, and if you dig the album be sure to still support K.R.I.T. and cop the album June 5th. Before you stream Live From The Underground check out Chedo’s interview with the man himself back in ’10.

“Live From the Underground” is built over the crisp rimshot now synonymous with ?uestlove and a humming chorus reminiscent of late-’90s neo-soul. In it, K.R.I.T. calls himself “cinematic,” a fair description. Trumpets stab. The piano is high in the mix. Throughout the album, it’s nighttime, it’s hot out and the crickets loom. – NPR

[Audio] Childish Gambino ft. Nipsey Hussle – “Black Faces” (Prod. Boi-1da)

First off, Boi-1da went all the way in on this beat, subtle yet convicting it lays a great platform for Gambino & Nipsey to do their thing. If you’ve been paying Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino attention these passed few weeks you know he’s been releasing some bangers. This has to be my favorite so far & with this he’s got a good grip on my attention. It looks like the rumors of an upcoming mixtape from the multi-talented emcee are coming to fruition with this release & my previous post for “Unnecessary”. Stay tuned for more info on the upcoming tape & stream/download Black Faces below.

UPDATE: What are your thoughts on the “Hologram Biggie Concert” poster in the album art, what do you think Gambino is trying to spark with that?

[Video] Nas – “Daughters” (Dir: Chris Robinson)

Nas just released the visuals to “Daughters” this morning. Directed by Chris Robinson, the music video chronicles Nas’ and Destiny Jones’ father-daughter relationship, and is shown from Destiny’s point of view. His daughter also makes an appearance in the video. Produced by No I.D., the track will appear on Nas’ upcoming Life Is Good album. Check out the visuals to “Daughters” below.

“I think that this song for Nas is so personal, everything in the song is real, that he wanted to share this moment with his fans, with the world, and it was actually his suggestion,” Robinson revealed. “I was ready to cast someone, and he was real calm and said, ‘Hey, Dest is gonna be here, I think we need to keep it real.’ ” (MTV)
