Following the audio release, Columbus, OH artist Doobie shares a music video for “Thicky Thoy,” the jaunty new joint that finds the rapper loaded with stance and energy.

Sacramento rapper Mozzy drops the official visual for “Excuse Me” featuring Bay area legend Too $hort as well as Yhung T.O. and DCMBR. The SUJ-directed visual captures the group partying poolside with friends in the Hills, a perfect fit for the song’s appealing NorCal bounce. Reece Beats can be credited with production on the track. “I wanted to make something the people can function with inside the club and the radio can gravitate to,” Mozzy told Complex, who premiered the video earlier today. “This song has become one of the biggest songs on Gangland Landlord.”
Mozzy’s latest album Gangland Landlord (Mozzy Records/EMPIRE) dropped earlier this month to rave reviews for its lyrical prowess and social consciousness.

The BET “HIP HOP AWARDS” 2018 brought the heat to Miami, Florida as Comedian and Actor Deray Davis hosted hip-hop’s biggest night of the year at The Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater.
The much anticipated cyphers were hosted by DJ Premier and featured a bevy of emcees dropping hot 16’s, including our guy Shawn Smith—who went on to deliver what executives are calling “the best freestyle of the night”.
“Shawn Smith hops on the set after Casanova, bragging about never being lame or being touched. He shined in a lyrically heavy cypher, delivering each bar calmly.” — XXL Magazine

Shortly after releasing her WAR + RAINDROPS EP, Iyla, captures our eyes and our hearts with a stimulating video to “Juice”, her ode to unexpected love.
With “Juice” Iyla transports the listener into the hard reality of confusion that comes with emotions taking the best of you. Playing off the baseline provided GRAMMY-nominated producer Kadis “Maui Black”-produced bassline, Iyla portrays a semi-psychedelic foray into her mind’s eye, over an infectious beat, marred by a bold acceptance. Professing openly that she’s “got the juice” to keep the love affair flourishing. “Juice” is the first official video from her WAR + RAINDROPS EP, now available on all music platforms. With a soulful but still sweet tone to her voice you can easily hear the influence of R&B and jazz in Iyla. While her melodies are playful and fresh, the lyrics tell a deeper story of a woman being honest about her imperfections.
“This for You” is a song for the ladies. The song is produced by RJ Lamont who is the producer of the late Dex Osama’s hit “Death On Me.” – Coach Joey..
