AllStar JR has released a visual for the soulful, heartfelt “Let The Game Be The Game.” It’s a beautiful track that should be the next pushed song from Organized Crime because of how different it sounds than anything out, also because it hones into the soulful aesthetic JR has already created for himself. The visual itself is moving as well, with director 2M Digital using plenty of slow-mo shots, haze clouds, and striking lightning in the background to create a wholly unique video. It’s more than your standard music video fare, yet deceptively simple as well. Actually, it’s pretty hard to explain. You’re better off checking it out for yourself.
If you appreciate the song and the video, make sure to download AllStar JR’s recently remixed Organized Crime. You’ll find more of this same strong, soulful music as well as the signature Detroit bounce that has come to be expected of rappers of this high of a caliber. He puts his own unique spin on well and worn tropes that well warrants a listen.

Dannyalwayswin and BIG Syme head to the strip club in “Case Close”
Dannyalwayswin and BIG Syme turn a trip to the strip club into a cinematic masterpiece. Thanks to some masterful editing from The Cinema Gods, a clash of reds, blues, booty, and dracos, makes for a seriously interesting watch. The way the light shines off the dancers’ backsides as the scene moves in slow motion is something that we won’t forget for a long while.
The song itself is fiery, making use of a drawn-out hook that becomes an instant earworm by the second time you hear it. Both contributions from these guys are quality gives and help to further their status as Detroit heavyweights.

Young Zo and Lil Trev craft a Bay Area anthem with “Slide 4 Me”
Bay Area stalwarts Young Zo and Lil Trev have a hit on their hands with the adventurous “Slide 4 Me.” Young ZO’s use of autotune clashes nicely with Lil Trev’s dangerous, charismatic flow. The production is Bay Area-esque to the fullest, being brisk, bubbly, and crisp. Combine these elements together and you have a seriously good hit that’ll do wonders to Zo and Trev’s rising star status.

@ImAsianDoll shows her vulnerable side on “These Boys Are The Same”
Asian Doll has decided to take a break from hardcore, street raps and has dipped into her delicate side with “These Boys Are The Same.” The slow, emotional cut has some gusto in it but is largely driven by a sullen delivery by Asian Doll who utilizes autotune to croon to listeners. It’s vulnerable, and, surprisingly, sounds really good. She’d be forgiven if she decided to sing more than she does rap; she’s now shown that she’s capable of doing both excellently.
