This is one of those unexpected bangers. It sneaks up on you with its earnestness, then delves into a soothing treat that features a smorgasbord of effective lyricism and taciturn elegance, thanks to the sampled production. Tron Pheiffer, S.AI.NT, and Von B have a hit on their hands here. “Uzishrug” may not sound like much of what you hear out nowadays, but it isn’t trying to. It’s a throwback to the days of sampled production and lyricism that actually mean something. And it’s damn effective too.
Listen to “Uzishrug” below.
.@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.
Check out the visual below.
@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.
Check out the video below.
.@AkhilSesh’s “I Don’t Need Nobody” is masterfully shot
The best part of Akhil Sesh’s new record “I Don’t Need Nobody” is the swiftness in which it moves. The video, edited by Goetia Portal, is beautiful and clean, combining cinematics with artfully shot clips that create a unique experience. The song itself is a smooth reinforcement of Sesh’s dominating abilities that showcase his growing palette of sounds.
