We all want to make it out of where we come from. Call it the American Dream; wishes of success always involve a change of scenery. Often times, it’s due to familiarity, or, the place that we come from being somewhere that success usually isn’t common. In Dub P and $tupid Young’s “Make It Out,” they touch on this concept in a slow, emotional cut that uses autotune to evoke some heart into it. With an accompanying visual that showcases guns, impoverished living, and a general lifestyle not suited for those with wishes of success, the two artists state their cases very clear; they want success and a better life. For that to happen, they have to relocate. And that’s something we all can understand; it makes it even easier because the song itself is very good as well.

.@drewisfamous and @playknows hit the school track in “Look At That!”
Drew Famous dropped the aesthetically bizarre 800DASH last year, and now he’s releasing the video for “Look At That!,” a crisply shot trip heavy on the nostalgia. It’s almost like one of those weird training videos from the 1990s that makes brilliant use of washed out color palettes and cool camera angles. It features PLAY of Virginia group Breezepark who brings tenacious energy to the chill tune.

@RealRobotJones and @LadiEarth have the time of their lives in “Big Ol Booty”
Robot’s tenacious new track “Big Ol Booty” will undoubtedly be the soundtrack to a lively time once the weather warms up. The Texas-based rapper knows how to have a good time, judging by past hits like “Camera” and “Sleigh,” and brings that same approach to this tune, reveling in his unique energy to breathe fresh air into the instrumental. Ladi Earth, whose music has just been featured on Netflix’s Russian Doll (her song “Water“), appears her and brings some sex appeal to the proceedings.
