Machine Gun Kelly – The Return [Music Video]

 
An emotional video to match an emotional song. What MGK has done is something that is perhaps unprecedented in the hip hop world. MGK is one of the most well renowned artists to be in such close contact with his fans; from organising flash mobs to pioneering his ‘Lace Up’ movement (which his fans religiously abide by), MGK represents the ‘troubled youth’ of today’s society and pays homage to them in this fantastic visual.

Jay Z – Glory

With the birth of baby Blue Ivy Carter, we have an affirmation of the joyful emotions that Sean Jay Z Carter is feeling. It’s really these moments that we see through to the soul of an artist, where they, in effect, bare all to the world, honest and pure. Congratulations to them for who they have just been blessed with; they have just created a millionaire.

Common – Stay Schemin [Drake Diss]

Common - Stay Schemin [Drake Diss] BeatsandCulture

“Make no mistake, I’m talking to Drake”. It didn’t take long for Common to retaliate to the verse that October’s Very Own laid on the caloboration track: Stay Schemin with Rick Ross. This seems like a bad situation from out point of view, because we have never witnessed a hip hop beef where at-least one of the artist’s either; didn’t cease to exist in the game anymore, where they lost all respect from their peers and fans, or, where their style of music changed. Either way the fans lose, but regardless, their those fans who see this as a sport and appreciate the competitive side of it, well, this is for you.

Bow Wow – Talking About

Lana Del Rey – This Is What Makes Us Girls

Lana Del Rey – This Is What Makes Us Girls BeatsandCulture

Hey, it’s Lana Del Rey again! This track comes off her much anticipated debut record Born To Die. On first hearing it and even just by looking at the title, you can already grasp the idea of the song and the concept behind it. A coming of age story if you will, that could have been expressed by Lana Del Rey. Even if it’s the males listening to this one, the music is of such a high caliber that you can not help but admire it. This lady is gonna do humongous things in 2012, watch this space.

Bow Wow Ft. Lloyd Banks – Yeah Yeah

This one is off Bow Weezy’s upcoming LP Underrated, and has called on the help of G-Unit power-player Lloyd Banks in making this track what it is. It is nice glimpse in what the LP looking to sound like. Radio rip.
