[Video] The Airplane Boys – “Beau Monde” (Dir: Warren Credo and Justin Create)

The Airplane Boys dropped this video today for “Beau Monde” which can be found on their mixtape Alignment. The video features the boys and their crew riding around in everything from Mitsubishis to private jets, to what looks like the DeLorean from Back to the Future. I remember seeing these guys open for J. Cole in Toronto last year and not knowing a thing about them. So it’s refreshing to see a couple of Toronto boys really making a name for themselves in the rap game. Check the video below and if you haven’t already got your hands on Alignment, head over to The Airplane Boy’s website and get it.

[Video] Classified ft. Mic Boyd & White Mic – “They Don’t Know” (Dir: Mic Boyd & Classified)

“We’ve seen it all before/ The young, broke artist finally getting his reward/ And the fans he first had were the hardest of hardcore/ Now they wanna say he’s losing touch with the artform?”

Mic Boyd just dropped the visuals for “They Don’t Know”, off Classified’s 2011 album Handshakes and Middle Fingers. The video features Class and Mic Boyd’s verses, as they weigh in on the effects of fame and the recurring issues of race in hip-hop. Once again, I find myself playing Classified’s songs on repeat. Check out the music video below. For more on Classified, check out his most recent interview with Chedo.

[Mixtape] Lute- “West1996″

West1996 is the debut mixtape from Charlotte, NC native & ForeverFC member, Lute. Inspired by the 90′s New York hip hop sound, the introspective, yet still rugged and raw lyrics Lute delivers are straight narrative hip hop. Not only is the mixtape cover inspired by Nas’ Illmatic you can hear the influence lyrically,and even down to the overall play length & track numbers. Production is on point as well, sampling great jazz & soul elements and mixing them with classic hip hop drums & bass to give it that true hip hop feel.

Early favorites of mine are “All About The Money” ft. Jimmy Kelso, ”West Nine 6″ ft. Schyler Chaise both ForeverFC members. As well as “80 Proof”, which the video of is available below. Stream the album below on the bandcamp player and download link is below.

[Audio] The O’My’s ft. Chance the Rapper & Nico Segal – “The Wonder Years” (Prod: Blended Babies)

Lately I’ve seen a whole movement of youth talent coming from Chicago that blends hip-hop, blues, soul, funk and jazz that results in pure dope music. Kids These Days, Vic Mensa and more recently Chance the Rapper are a few of the artists involved in this movement. If you haven’t already listened to Chance’s new 10 Day tape, then I suggest you get on that ASAP! Here is what I believe to be the second offering from Chicago band The O’My’s upcoming mixtape appropriately titled Chicago Style. “The Wonder Years” features a verse from Chance the Rapper as well as Kids These Day’s Nico Segal assisting on the trumpet. The soulful jazz and blues sound heard on “The Wonder Years” is a breath of fresh air as it is still able to appeal to todays generation. Give the track a listen and download below. Check back for updates on Chicago Style .
