If you don’t know by now that Molly Brazy has haters, you’re under a rock. She addresses the phenomenon through her music often, always coming up with creative ways to hone in the fact that you shouldn’t fuck around with her. In her new video for “Ion Like You,” instead of angrily relaying the fact, she switches things up. Amidst the bouncy production that’s as skeletal as it is energetic, Molly calmly raps to the peasants. It’s refreshing, original, and, surprisingly, sexy.
There’s an accompanying visual that reinforces the fact that Molly’s past the theatrics, she’s sternly telling off the haters without any excessive force. It’s better this way; they understand the message, and, more importantly, casual listeners don’t feel put off. But on this outing, Molly feels more mature and her body language shows it. If you carefully watch the background, you can see rising star YBN Nahmir and posse vibing to the smooth release. Could there be a collaboration coming between the two? We’ll have to wait and see.

@AkhilSesh’s visual for “Lil Thouwow” will throw you for a loop
Akhil Sesh’s latest visual is “Lil Thouwow” and if there’s one word to describe it, it’s definitely “wow.” That’s a good one by the way, often because the word gets misconstrued in this context. In the visual for the song smoother than usual song, Akhil Sesh loads on copious amounts of special effects that showcase a drive to be eclectic. It works, too.

Y.E.D. hails from Atlanta and is more grassroots than anyone coming out of the city.
