Fat Joe, Wiz Khalifa and Teyana Taylor are all about the stacks in Fat Joe’s new song “Ballin’.” Fancy suits, mansions, jewelry and expensive cars make their rounds as the three drive home the money, money, money theme of the song in the recently released video.
“Ballin” is lifted from Fat Joe’s upcoming album The Darkside Vol. 3 which is scheduled for release for a summer release.
Check out the Elf Rivera-directed video for “Ballin” and below and look out for cameos to include the likes of Trey Songz and Scott Disick.
With the release of The Dream’s upcoming album IV Play about a week away, he getting his fans ready with the release of the video for the album’s lead single of the same name.
In the video The Dream sings about his sexual desires showing his naughty side all while surrounded by beautiful ladies that are sure to appeal to his male fans. Check out the visuals for The Dream’s “IV Play” below.
As a fan of Pusha T’s, his latest video took me back to the 90′s. That was time when east coast rap was in the forefront and you had great producers/artists like DJ Premiere, Das EFX, Smith & Wesson, Wu-Tang Clan, and various others give music back then a certain sound. Well, Pusha T’s “Numbers On The Board” give me that same feeling. It’s simple but unique sound, along with the Jay-Z sample, makes the song somewhat nostalgic. Kanye West and Don Cannon was probably he best choices to produce the track. Kanye is great for his unique cadence and sound choices. While, Cannon is known for his sampling technique. On top of that, you can’t deny Pusha’s a beast with the bars.
This joint is setting the tone for his upcoming album release. We can’t see what else is in store. But for now if you want to reminisce a for about 3 minutes, check out his new video below:
Pusha T’s My Name Is My Name is scheduled for a July 16 release.
Finally, Aftermath/Interscope put the money up for Kendrick Lamar’s hit “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe.” Considering the album was released months ago, none of Kendrick’s fans didn’t anticipate it would take this long to release a video. Anyhoo, the fans can be happy now. The new video is simple, but somewhat befitting for the California emcee who is lowkey and isn’t one to praise materialistic things. It’s about time an artist say F-k the big booty hoes, flashy jewels, and Bugatti’s in their videos. This is why Kendrick get so much respect. He is in his own lane…and he owns it.
The video features comedian Mike Epps. Take a peep and let us know what you think.
John Legend is definitely in a sexy mood these days. His latest release “Who Do We Think We Are” can be considered borderline soft porn. The models bare naked breasts and sensually move about the video showing graceful love to party goers. The special added touch comes from Rick Ross, whose flow seems to fit right in since he’s been on that smooth boss sh-t lately. Visually though, this video does a fine job capturing the human body which is considered the purest art form.
As long as you are in a NSFW environment, take a peep at John Legend’s new video below.
Trina released a new video this week. Despite the recent tragedy with her younger brother [click here], she’s keeping the business aspect of her life on track. The video “Round of Applause” isn’t anything out of the ordinary for Trina. She keeps it stylish, hood, and engulfed with big booty chicks. All the right ingredients to serve the men what they want.
Check it out below and let us know what you think.
Trina’s Back 2 Business mixtape is out now. Check out Livemixtapes or Datpiff to download a free copy!
About a month ago Ashanti shocked fans with the release her new song “Never Should Have.” Needless to say she came out swinging with the emotional track. Well now she followed up with a video for the song. “Never Should Have” is the lead single from Ashanti’s upcoming album Braveheart which is scheduled for release on June 11th. Check out the video below and let us know if you think it drives the message of the song home.
Even though her songs are few and far between, Lil Kim makes it evident that she hasn’t laid her mic down. Her latest song is titled “Jay-Z” but actually has nothing to do with Mr. Carter except for the repeated use of his “Allow me to reintroduce myself” line from his song “PSA”. The track will be featured on Lil Kim’s protégé Tiffany Foxx’s upcoming mixtape who is also featured on the song.
Check out the video the ladies recently dropped for their song “Jay-Z” and let us know what you think.
It’s been a minute since there’s been visuals released off of 2 Chainz debut album, B.O.A.T.S.. Tour dates or numerous features on other projects may be the reason for the delay. Nonetheless, 2 Chainz continues to shine and standout amongst other rappers who are more seasoned than him. Whether it is the flamboyantly strange outfits or crazy lyrics, you can’t deny his uniqueness.
He’s stated on Twitter that he’s working on his second album. B.O.A.T.S. was pretty good so we’re sure he’s going to up the ante on this next one with better production, diverse features, and more lyrical skill. Until then, he’s giving fans more videos to tie us over. Take a look at his latest two videos “Like Me” which features a cameo from label partner Richie Cap 1, and “Yuck” featuring Lil Wayne.
One of my favorite tracks off of the Girl On Fire album finally goes to video. “Fire We Make” is a highly sensual track that brings out the sexier side of Alicia Keys. To add to the heat, Maxwell’s smooth tone and demeanor appears in the video as Alicia’s love interest. The video is set in New Orleans and the heat is unbearable. But, the sexy combination of Alicia, Maxwell, the heat, and some ice all translates into a pretty dope video.
Check out “Fire We Make” below:
The head honcho of Grand Hustle better known as T.I. has released the video for his song “Memories Back Then.”
The song was originally recorded for T.I.’s recently released album Trouble Man: Heavy is the Head but didn’t meet sample clearance requirements in time for the album’s release. But we all know one monkey doesn’t stop the King of the South’s show and he has moved forward with releasing the track with a different beat. “Memories Back Then” will now serve as the lead single for the upcoming Hustle Gang compilation mixtape ‘G.D.O.D. The Introduction’.
Even though the Atlanta bred rapper can hold his own, he ups the ante on this track with the added features. Kendrick Lamar and Grand Hustle’s B.O.B lend their lyrical skills to the track while R&B newcomer Kris Stephens showcases her vocal talents on song’s chorus.
Besides who’s actually on the song, the content and message of “Memories Back Then” rings loud and should make a lot of ladies think about the position they play in men’s lives. Check out the video below and let us know what you think about the video and the song itself.
Two of today’s hottest musical artists, one from the world of R&B and the other from the realm of hip-hop, recently teamed up for a remix. Hip-Hop’s Kendrick Lamar assists R&B crooner Miguel on the remix of his song “How Many Drinks” which comes from Miguel’s latest album Kaleidoscope Dream.
Well now the video for the song is here and instead of playing out visuals of what the song is about, Miguel decided to take a different route with the concept of the video. About the artistic vision and concept of the video, Miguel said in a recent interview, “It was really important to capture the artistry and performance–and almost elevate the artistry and integrity of the song. I thought this was a good way for people to understand who I am on stage and as a performer.”
Check out the video for “How Many Drinks” below.
In an effort to keep her buzz going, hip-hop artist Azealia Banks has released the video for her latest single “Yung Rapunxel.” Since we never know what exactly to expect from Miss Banks the visuals for the track may not be what you expected but still should come as no surprise.
The song comes from Banks upcoming debut album Broke with Expensive Taste which hasn’t yet got an official release date. But in the meantime in between time check out the video for “Yung Rapunxel” below.

Although the track is not the single to her upcoming album, “Slo” was apparently worthy enough to receive the greenlight from the label for a video. The Diplo and Fki produced track was featured on Iggy Azalea’s Trapgold mixtape project. The song tells the story of a love affair that doesn’t work out because of enjoyment of the fast life.
Peep the lyrics and video below:
Used to be happy, but now shit’s unpredictable
I smiled at the show but there were tears in the limo though
You fucked her on my birthday and that’s what really hurt the most
You tell the truth… half way, guess thats why this unfixable
But still …
When I’m alone, I check the time
I hit you up, you’re on my mind
You love the light, the fast life
Fuck that though
I’d rather go slo, yeah
I’d rather go slo
I’d rather go slo
I’d rather go slo

OK Nicki!!! I’m digging this joint.
Nicki Minaj dropped her new video for “High School” which features her bossman Lil Wayne. The video is a nice sunny vid, perfect segway into the spring/summer season. In the midst of a little action, the chemistry between Wayne and Nicki is very prevelant. If I didn’t know any better, I’d think they were a bonafide couple. LOL
Anyhoo, check out Nicki’s new video below and let me know what you think.
As fans wait for the highly anticipated Lip Lock album, E-V-E releases a new single and video. “Make It Out This Town” is a pop tune that features Cobra Starship member Gabe Saporta. It’s good that this isn’t a brand new sound for Eve. She’s dibbled and dabbled with pop tunes in past. Let’s hope it works out well for her this time around.
In the meantime, if you want to be inspired and brighten up your day a little bit, check out Eve’s new video below.
Future is determined to remain relevant. In his newest video, his flow has reached a high point…literally. I can’t say that I like it. But, I can concur that it is unique. The Sonny Digital produced track features Future in a sneaker store surrounding by lovely ladies. The video was directed by Cricket.
Check it out below…
MMG’s Wale dropped the visuals to his newest banger, “Bad”. The video features newcomer Tiara Thomas and stars the lovely Bria Murphy as his leading lady. The song tells the story of a chick whose demeanor is kinda cold and bitter due to past issuses. Wale recognizes what type of chick she is and breaks down her character in the most poetic way (as only Wale himself can do).
Check out the video below…
Wale is set to drop his next album The Gifted on June 25!
A$AP Rocky has given his fans the visual version of his single “Wild for the Night.” The Harlem rapper collaborated with producer Skrillex for the track which also features Birdy Nam Nam.

Well well well…two of my favorite caucasian male singers released new videos this week.
First off, Justin Timberlake set it off recently with the release of The “20/20 Experience” album. On track to sell 800,000 in the first week, this album will be Justin’s career high. If you haven’t picked up the album, you are missing out. From beginning to end, JT did the damn thing! One of my favorite tracks on the album, “Mirrors”, now is accompanied with a visual. Check out the adorable video below which chronicles the love life of an elderly couple.
Often compared to Justin, but in my opinion are very different artists, Robin Thicke released a fun sexy video for the lead single to his upcoming project. “Blurred Lines” features rapper T.I. and Pharrell and three lovely ladies. Looks like all of the fellas had a good time. Check out the video below…
Musical artist Pitbull teamed up with the singing soultress Christina Aguilera for his groovy tune “Feel This Moment.” There’s so no secret that the song which comes from his current album Global Warming is a hit considering it made its way to #13 on Billboard’s Hot 100.

DJ Aaries is legendary in the city of Atlanta. As founder of the Hood Hard DJs, he’s been stepping into the other side of music which is producing and directing. With his latest mixtape collaboration with Blackowned C-Bone, F.I.L.A: The Soundtrack, he’s taken the lead in the development of visuals to accompany each cut.

One third of Destiny Childs, Kelly Rowland, is gearing up for her next studio album. Thus, next on her list is the highly sexual “Kisses Down Low” cut in which she released a month or so ago. The Mike Will Made It produced cut features only Kelly herself as she playfully rocks out in bright colored outfits with matching hair. The visual is sort of reminiscent of “Crush On You” with Lil Kim.
We’re loving the song and the video is just the right touch. Check it out below…
A few days ago we brought you the trailer to T.I.’s next single off his Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head album. “Addresses”, a short film, is filled with plenty action as the Grand Hustle squad run the A-town splitting wigs in hopes of finding the ultimate enemy. Although, there’s many high-powered guns in the video, Tip plays it safe by taking the Boss role and leaving the actual killings up to his goons. Smart move…
Check out the full version of “Addresses” below…
