Video: West Coast Wyn - "Flexin"

Joe: At only 22 years young, Los Angeles' own West Coast Wyn has been living with hip-hop in his blood since he was just 7 years old. After dropping his first solo mixtape at the age of 15 and landing multiple performances in the years that followed, Wyn was able to catch the attention of Freestyle Records CEO Big Marv, which resulted in him signing to the label.

Now that he has a full team behind him, Wyn is ready to give the world his debut album. "Flexin" is the lead single off Wyn's upcoming project and it sheds light on the California native's knack for the finer things, including women, diamonds, and fancy cars.

Wyn's debut LP, 2K Ballin, will be available in stores via Freestyle/SMC/INgrooves Music Group on November 25, 2014.

PR: Babygrande Records Teams Up with Acclaimed Electronic Producer Lee Bannon for Main/Flex EP

Babygrande Records is excited to welcome acclaimed electronic producer Lee Bannon to the company. Lee Bannon initially gained his popularity in the Hip-Hop world with his collaborations with Pro Era founder Joey Bada$$ before branching off into the world of electronic music. Lee’s inspiration is not only derivative of other music but also film and other aspects of the art world. His previous album Alternate/Endings (2013) catapulted Lee’s popularity in the electronic world.

With exceptional reviews in Pitchfork, Thump, Fader, Spin and other tastemaker outlets Lee has become a press favorite, gathering more and more steam with each release. Bannon’s wheelhouse is only expanding. From Hip-Hop to Jungle and Drum & Bass, Lee seems to master whatever genre he chooses. Pitchfork said it best in their 2014 review of Alternate/Endings “Bannon can call wherever he rests his head home, be it D&B, hip-hop, or elsewhere.” With a talent like Lee Bannon, it is hard to not capture attention.

Video: Ja Rule - We Have to Accept Shirt-Skirt is Hip Hop Now - Ja Rule opened up during his exclusive VladTV interview about the perceived feminization of Hip-Hop, while using fashion as an example. He shares a story about his son wanting a "shirt-skirt" after the boy told him it was in style, but Ja initially said "no." After thinking about the cringe-worthy fashion of his youth, the Queens rapper decided that he had to accept that this kind of fashion was trendy in Hip Hop now.
