Tef Poe and Rockwell Knuckles debut new video

The second video from Tef Poe's latest magna carta Cheer For The Villain was just released. Titled "Hog in the Lane," the video features Rockwell Knuckles and is clearly a classic Saint Louis street video. Tef and Rocky didn't even put out that much notice. It was kind of like, ‘Yo, "Hog In The Lane video," be here, boom,' and this is the organic result. It really shows the city's flair and the love for its artists. Shot entirely on the North Side streets, it has cars, chips, drinking in cars, Pitbull puppies, mannequins, OG's in suits, a snake, and a John Deer golf cart on Daytons. Any Questions?

I've definitely seen videos that cost way more, but have way less character than this one. The track itself is super solid. It's a stand out in an album full of incredible tracks beautiful

Sage Francis releases new video for Make Em Purr

"Do introverts get to have an anthem?" Sage Francis asks. If so, this would be it. Sage's new video for "Make Em Purr" is a beautifully introspective narrative off his new album, Copper Gone.

Released via Strange Famous Records, Copper Gone is another brilliant addition to Sage's vast catalog of poetic underground hip-hop. The video itself is completely illustrated and is nothing short of mind-blowing. It perfectly fits the theme of the song, which is about the death of Sage's beloved cat and his sometimes bitter loneliness.

Please visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjxHy8WTgTs to check out the video now.

Video Director: Wasaru. Art Director: Jebedaï Couture. Beat by Buck 65.

Diabolic puts out new single with Sean Price & Vinnie Paz

A trio of rugged rhymers: Sean Price, the Brooklyn-bred lyricist that's quick to knock your block off Jailhouse Rock style; Diabolic, the aggressive Suffolk County rhyme sayer that spits with reckless abandon; and Vinnie Paz, the misanthropic Philly native who stays ready for battle, all make up the foundation for "Game Time," the latest release from Diabolic's forthcoming Fightin Words LP, that's set to drop 9/16.

Although Diabolic might not be a household name just yet, his accolades are worth mentioning: earning a spot on Billboard's Hip Hop and R&B charts, as well as receiving the HHUG Best Album of the Year Award with his debut LP, Liar & a Thief, are quite the accomplishments.

Over a slick cut from the Brooklyn beat-smith, 5th Seal, who manages to squeeze everybody from Das E

However, the reality is that it's an issue which affects people from every walk of life in real-time every day. Ja'Rae Womack (the Granddaughter of Sam Cooke and the Niece of Bobby Womack) has recently dedicated a track to every woman who has endured emotional, mental and physical abuse. "The cover for this song depicts the unconditional love between a mother and her child, no matter how scarred they may be. This mother and child were physically abused and burned with acid by the husband and father. No matter what permanent damages maybe inflicted by our fellow man, it proves that love and forgiveness conquer all. I dedicate my life and career to those who have been and are being ab
