Watch the new music video released for Freddie Gibbs’s “Bugatti Bullet Holes.” Maybe I’m late, but this is the first time I’ve seen a “Video Game” themed music video. It seems like artists lately have been inspired by creativity. We recently saw a claymation music video for the Roots’s “When The People Cheer,” and now we have a video game music video from Freddie Gibbs. I can truly say that I personally appreciate the new spark of creativity from the hip hop world being as though in the last 5 years, hip hop to me has lacked some serious creativity and originality. Everyone has been sounding the same and biting off of each other’s ideas. Quite boring lately. Hopefully this is the start of actual “new ideas” and put an end to this “boring” era of hip hop.

SOOOO, yesterday I posted the Roots’s claymation music video for “When the People Cheer,” which is a single off of their May 19th, upcoming album “…and then you shoot your cousin.” Now they have released the artwork for the album cover as well as the track list for the upcoming project. Check it out :

1. Theme From the Middle of the Night
2. Never
3. When the People Cheer
4. The Devil
5. Black Rock
6. Understand
7. Dies Irae
8. The Coming
9. The Dark (Trinity)
10. The Unraveling
11. Tomorrow

Look out for the project dropping on iTunes May 19th.

New music video from the LEGENDARY Roots crew. The video is entirely in claymation which I feel is expected due to the group’s wide range of creativity and uniqueness (no, uniqueness is not a word). They are, in my opinion, one of the best acts to ever pick up a microphone and still continue to have longevity in hip hop today. The song is entitled “When The People Cheer,” which is a single off of their upcoming album dropping May 19th, 2014, entitled “& Then You Shoot Your Cousin,” Catchy ain’t it?

Nas, 50 Cent, The Roots, and Nicki Minaj just to name a few to perform at Hot 97 Summer Jam 2014

SO.! Here are some of the artists lined up for the upcoming HOT 97 Summer Jam 2014 concert that I’m sure you are all DYING to see. Just to name a few of the musical guests: Lil Wayne, 50 Cent, Nas, The Roots, Nicki Minaj, YG, Ty Dolla $ign, Nipsey Hussle, Jhene Aiko, Wiz Khalifa, Childish Gambino, and much more. The concert will take place so far at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford. Let’s just hope another incident like last year (the Nicki Minaj- Peter Rosenberg “Star ship” quarrel) does not happen again this year! Stick to rappin Nicki!
