Video: Rick Ross ft. Jay Z – Devil Is A Lie (A Film by Ashley Smith)

January 5, 2014 · Posted in covers, editorial, movies, Music, Videos · Comment 

Just as when your imagination fills up to its potential, there comes along a filmmaker by the name of Ashley Smith. When the record, Devil Is A Lie by Rick Ross ft. Jay Z dropped, the social sphere began throwing their remarks about devil worshiping, illuminati, and etc. That isn’t what Ashley Smith is trying to showcase. Behind every song, you develop an imagination of what the mirror image of that record could display. This film brings such a deeper meaning to what Rozay & Hovito are spittin’.

I discovered this short film, and believe it was only right to showcase it to our readers. Probably one of the best  (if you want to make it in blog terms) “fan made” videos I have seen in a minute. Priest Hov is probably my favorite! ha!

Check out Ashley Smith’s wesbite here for more videos and his rendition of Drake’s 5 a.m. in Toronto.

August 8, 2013 · Posted in downloads, editorial, mixtapes, Music, Performance, up-and-coming, Videos · Comment 

KillerHipHop is static to deliver a new music video from music-duo, I.O.U. with “Take A Walk”. This song is chopped into an awesome sample by Passion Pit for their tune “Take A Walk.”

I.O.U. were recently out in LA for the Campus Movie Festival for a short film they did for the Rutgers University Campus Movie Festival that won them top honors, and took the opportunity to shoot a music video with their director friend Jean Isaacs, while out there. The visual also included shots of I.O.U.’s Webster Hall show, opening for OCD: Mooch & Twist, and Jacob Es.

What To Expect In 2013: Albums

January 16, 2013 · Posted in editorial · 20 Comments 

This time last year I was here talking about wanting to see Detox in 2012. One year later, I’m still at it after-mathematics. Although, Detox is probably the album I’m anticipating the most, this year still has lots and lots of dope albums coming out. Weezy F. will try to correct himself after a disappointing effort on Carter IV. J. Cole will try to write in his ballot into the hip-hop hall of fame, and Big Sean will prove to everybody that he’s more than a GOOD rapper. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg, so chill out G. There’s more after the break.

CNN Names Nas the “Greatest Lyricist of All Time.”

January 9, 2013 · Posted in editorial, news · 18 Comments 

CNN has announced Nas as “the greatest lyricist of all time.”
Eliott C. McLaughlin of CNN says, “The words were carefully chosen. “‘Lyricist” over “rapper” or “hip-hop artist;” “greatest” instead of “most successful;” “all time” rather than “today.”
The article places the 40 year old rapper up against other artists such as Jay Z, Eminem, Andre 3000, along with the late Pac and Biggie.

What do you think? Is Nas really the greatest lyricist of all time? If not, who would you say is more deserving of the crown, and why?

Top 15 Albums/Mixtapes Of 2012

December 27, 2012 · Posted in editorial, reviews · 27 Comments 

Another year down, another solid year for hip hop and R&B. It’s always great to be able to go into your iTunes, hit the “Date Added” tab and just relive your year through music from January-December. Memories being brought up with each mixtape and album you listen to. Well, we all have our personal favorites that we preferred over the other. I started this whole Top Albums/Mixtapes thing last year, and of course it stirred controversy. It’s expected anytime you broadcast your opinion all over the world. Somebody I never heard of on your list? Cool, leave it in the comment section and enlighten me. Other than that, I enjoy giving my opinion and see who agrees/disagrees. A lot of good projects this year, but here is what I ended up with for my top 15 projects of the year.  Read more
