Last week, we talked about La’Britney and Kash Doll’s “Actin Funny” being a great release from two of Detroit’s hottest female artists. The only thing that was missing from the song was an accompanying visual that captured both of their distinct personalities. That’s changed with the release of the visual for the record, and, in short, it’s amazing.
Both La’Britney and Kash Doll exude tremendous amounts of sex appeal: La’Britney’s is more innocent and sensual while Kash Doll’s is more boss-like and overpowering. They’re both two sides of the same coin, but equally luscious. It’s a wonder that the visual for the record manages to capture this through camera angles, quick cuts, and outfit choices. Kash Doll’s luxurious heels match her humongous mink while La’Britney’s more club-ready dress shows the best of her physique.
The colors on display are beautiful, with various shades of red and orange featured prominently throughout. The visual manages to elevate the song in almost every way, making an already hot song even hotter. It’s no wonder that MTV has already acknowledged it so early in its runtime. Where it soars from here remains to be seen.

Russ Released An Ass Whoopin Soundtrack Last Year And No One Noticed
The minions of Russ have put their hands on Adam22 of the No Jumper podcast and rapper Smokepurpp. Apparently, there’s more in the pipeline – Adam revealed that there are multiple other industry figures who have had this happen to them. This information has posited Russ as the ultimate throwback rapper, an artist not afraid to get into the fray with his posse. Wouldn’t it be badass if he released a song that acted as a soundtrack to his endeavors?
Last year, before the reports of these happenings started to swarm in, he released his debut album There Is Really A Wolf. On that album is “Flip,” a strong, swaggering track that sounds both eerie and hilarious in light of the recent events that we’ve heard about. On the song, he raps about how rappers need to keep the same energy when they see him. In the video that released back in January, around the time that Adam22 said he was sucker punched by members of Russ’ crew, Russ hangs with what looks like the Nigerians that multiple people have complained about. At the time it looked like a regular video, now, it looks hilarious.
Just listen to the song below, check out the video, and have a laugh.
