Watch UG Vavy’s new video for “Gwap”

Directed by Yakub Films

The streets aren’t all what they’re cracked up to be. Facts. Sure, the fast life is enticing, but what comes fast can leave just as quickly. Is the risk worth the reward? Well, that’s up to you. Balance and options. In UG’s great new video for “Gwap,” he explores these topics. Are the circumstances worth the chances? It’s a tough call.

Watch his interpretation on the subject below.

Stream Amir Obè’s ‘None Of The Clocks Work’ EP

Words by Cory Sinclair

Detroit’s own Amir has released his brand new project titled None Of The Clocks Work. After releasing “Wish You Well” earlier this month, Amir returns with six more tracks to round out this stellar new EP. This project is produced entirely by NYLZ, and serves as a follow-up to last year’s EP, Won’t Find Love In The Hills. Amir Obè has definitely been making noise within the recent months, after signing a deal with Def Jam, as well as being featured among the rest of the rising artists to be voted for 2017’s XXL Freshman 10th spot. Definitely not an artist to be slept on.
Stream None Of The Clocks Work below, which can also be purchased on iTunes here.

Premiere: pnkblnkt Delivers His Own Vision of Post Malone and Quavo’s “Congratulations”

One of my favorite songs gets the remix treatment courtesy of Indiana’s own pnkblnkt, a producer that you’ll know soon if you don’t already. I’ll let pnkbnkt take it from here:

“I wanted to try and incorporate elements from the range of music I’ve been listening too lately, so I started with the Post Malone vocals and later incorporated the sample of Arca’s “Piel”. I tried to tie the two together with my own sound for something new and a fresh take on a song people are familiar with.”

pink did his thing with this one. Listen below and keep your ears open for more from pnkblnkt.

Bump J to be released from prison on April 12th, 2017

It’s almost time. The return of Bump J. The re-introduction of a gangsta. Bump and his brother Shake just took to social media to announce Bump’s official release date, which is April 12th, 2017. Earlier this year, it was announced that Bump J would see the free world in March, and it appears they were just a couple weeks off on that prediction.

Bump J has been locked down since November of 2008 — nearly an entire decade — stemming from 2007 bank robbery charges. He took a federal plea deal in 2009, and was sentenced to a minimum of seven years in federal prison. It appears the criminal justice system has finally granted Bump his release, so let’s hope there are no more hold ups. He’s more than paid his debt to society.

There’s no doubt Bump will shake the city up upon his arrival. I’m very excited to see what his immediate plans are as a free man. Let’s hope he can reclaim his spot at the top in an industry that has changed drastically since his incarceration.

We’ll keep you posted with more details as they become available to us.
