Share This.Kane Mayfield isn’t exactly a noob when it comes to rap music, but his latest track, “Sleep,” emits a refreshing confidence that can only be possessed by an artist that has settled into a creative groove. Mayfield is establishing his brand; and the result is signature word play, thoughtful content, and rotation friendly songs like “Sleep.” Also, see if you can spot the E.F. Hutton reference.

Share This.Just in case you didn’t know, the 20th anniversary of Mobb Deep‘s first album, Juvenile Hell, recently passed on April 13th. But what is even more interesting is that the anniversary of their highly successful, The Infamous, is just right around the corner (April 25th). Despite the bickering (and eventual reconciliation), the duo is still going strong until this day and we wanted to celebrate that resilience by featuring this dope Read More

Share This.While rap is a brilliant art form, you will not be hard pressed to find someone who absolutely despises the genre. Even fans have their qualms–and with good reason. Rap, a component of the collective culture that is hip-hop,  is assumed to have gone to the dogs. But having just survived a nuclear holocaust of materialism, misogyny, and ideological conformity, rap is currently undergoing a respectable renaissance. Whether by Read More

Share This.Anthony Cruz is quite the character–the Puerto Rican Larry David to be exact. Stopping short of having his own show on HBO, Cruz is certainly the odd man out. Growing up in Manhattan, the rhyme slinger is nothing like his counterparts. A beloved concoction of boom-bap and abstract progressivism, Cruz is more than willing to take his craft outside of the box. Most rappers feel silly when exploring their Read More

Share This.Kane Mayfield is scorching the web with his latest single, “Middle Class”. “A eulogy for hope,” the song is perhaps Mayfield’s most hard hitting tune to date. Mayfield spends his time on the song reopening barely healed wounds, leaving his art to gracefully bleed out on life’s stage. From the chilling Glengarry Glen Ross sample to Mayfield’s severely candid wordplay, “Middle Class” is a vivid portrait of the no-collar Read More

Share This.Rapper YONAS recently released visuals for his single, “Clockwork”. Directed by Jakob Owens, the video is gritty, breakneck tour through New York, New York. You can’t help but feel a little amped after watching it. “Clockwork” can be found on YONAS’ latest effort, The Black Canvas.

Share This.As a whole, the New American Noise is an outright hit, but, due a little Gotham City bias, we are particularly fond of Spit Gold Under An Empire. Directed by Emily Kai Bock, the short film features some notable new acts, including CJ Fly and Kirk Knight of Pro Era, Angel Haze, and Mykki Blanco. One of six installments, Spit Gold Under An Empire brings light to a burgeoning Read More

Share This. Action Bronson is making noise again. The Queens rapper recently dropped visuals for “The Symbol”, the first single off of his upcoming mixtape, Rare Chandeliers. For the video, Bronson has once again teamed up with fellow Queens native, Rik Cordero, to bring us some neo-classic spoofing of the 70s film era. We also caught friend to Quiet Lunch, Ohene C, busting out his acting chops yet again. You can Read More
