Video: The Freeze Tag (Cassettes Won't Listen & Bisco Smith) - "The Vision"

With their new EP, Hamster Kid, released just last week, The Freeze Tag, the duo of Brooklyn rapper Bisco Smith and LA producer Cassettes Won't Listen, is excited to release a new visual chapter in what has become one of hip-hop's most unique storyboards. Created by Bishop 203 and directed by Mike Vidoli, the music video series details the trials and tribulations of the young antihero, Hamster Kid, as he overcomes doubt in his attempt to lead a passionate life, free of restriction and limitation.

The latest chapter of this saga, "The Vision," follows the characters escape from the underground corporate complex seen in "The Voices" and "The Hustle." Now on the outside, Hamster Kid begins to find solace and strength in the optimism of the big city. Shot in all black in white, the music video depicts citizens of the city in what serves as a motif for hope despite the obstacles people face everyday. As the Booklyn emcee, Bisco Smith, explains, "'The Vision' is about the idea of a new day, shining light on a brave new world, and feeling like that new day - that new world - is filled with limitless possibilities. What it brings is completely unknown; the future is uncertain, and this song fully embraces that."

MP3: Rapid Ric - "Actin' Bad" Feat. Lil' Keke & Slim Thug

Latest Single Off Whut It Dew Reunites Two Of Houston's Finest

The Song:

Everything is bigger in Texas, as the saying goes, but Rapid Ric is here to make it badder, too, and he does just that with "Actin' Bad," the second single off his new album, Whut It Dew. He brought on two other Texans to toughen up the track: longtime friend Slim Thug, who Ric used to DJ for on tour, and Lil Keke, who was featured on "25 Lighters" by DJ DMD. "'Actin' Bad' samples '25 Lighters,' which is one of the most popular classic Texas rap songs ever," says Ric. "DJ DMD was a DJ from Port Arthur who put out self-produced compilations with many artists, much like what I'm doing with Whut It Dew, so it was it honor to have him say that he's familiar with the movement here."

Rapid Ric's production, chock full of organ, beating drums, and an ominously screwed hook, is perfect for Keke's and Thugga's southern drawls, as the two use the track as an opportunity to reunite a long-running collaborative history that includes their 2003 album together, The Big Unit. And, in addition to that, for Ric it's just a feel good song, made for top-notch car speakers. "It's a Sunday cruise song," he says, adding, "The low end is made for a Cadillac's trunk."

Video: Trinity (A.G., Sadat X, DJ Jab) - "20 In"


From Audible Treats:

Video: Trinity (A.G., Sadat X, DJ Jab) - "20 In"

Two decades and countless classic albums into their already legendary careers, A.G. of Diggin' In The Crates (D.I.T.C.), Sadat X of Brand Nubian, and DJ Jab, owner and founder of Fat Beats Records, continue to show and prove as the super group Trinity, and step it up again with their new single, "20 In," which celebrates the group's roots and turns the mirror on today's hollow hustlers by begging the simple question: "If you have nothing to say, why are you in the game?"

The "20 In" music video, directed by Young Studios, provides perfectly adequate visuals to accompany Trinity's true-school aesthetic; an antenna-sporting television, Adidas signature shell-toe sneakers draped over-top, is bustling static before the group's three members break through. Atop DJ Jab's thumping bass, boisterous brass, and well-placed organ wails, A.G. and Sadat X throw their weight around in brazen call-and-response verses that detail the intense amount of legwork that the trio has put in the game. "You make your name a brand, do you think you can?/ Build a legacy it better be your own hands," A.G. and Sadat take turns rapping. "What's your strategy can I see your playbook?/ It has to be more than MySpace and Facebook."
