Video: Kreayshawn - "Breakfast (Syrup)" Ft. 2 Chainz
Last week, Kreayshawn announced an August 14th release date for her eagerly awaited debut album, Somethin 'Bout Kreay, and the messy, sticky, pancake-laden self-directed video for the lead single, "Breakfast (Syrup)," featuring 2 Chainz. And now, fans can see how Kreayshawn brought the wacky breakfast extravaganza to life with a new behind-the-scenes video from the shoot.
Apollo Brown & OC - "The Biggest Loser" (Non-Album Bonus Track)
Apollo Brown and OC caught lightning with Trophies. The album gave the world an OC who had not lost a step and a modern producer who was earning a place in the continuum of classic hip-hop. In celebration of this success, Mello Music Group leaks “The Biggest Loser,” a bonus cut not on the album.
An elder statesman, OC flexes his pedigree on “The Biggest Loser.” OC glides over somber keys that are chopped well by Apollo Brown. The subject matter runs from line to line, but the feeling of sober determination is most salient. OC bobs and weaves with Apollo’s fiery vocal sample on the hook, reinforcing the motivational essence of the verses. The veteran has had a historic career and here he sounds confident without crossing into braggadocio, reflective without waning nostalgic, and powerful without being intimidating.
There are no promises in hip-hop, trends come and go and careers can vanish in the blink of an eye, but hard-earned classic artists, like OC and Apollo, will always have a place at the table.

Fort Worth producer Sixo presents the EKP Pictures-produced music video for "God Cops" featuring Poindexter and Heir Max. "God Cops" is featured on Tracking Perception, Sixo's eight-song EP featuring former Anticon member Sole, AWOL One, Onry Ozzborn, Ceschi and Gregory Pepper. "When my life partner went to NYC, she came back with a story," says Sixo about the song's beginnings. "She'd get off the subway to come home and the same corner boy was there every time. After a couple days, she came to expect him. One day, he wasn't there, and she was a bit worried. 'What happened? What's going on?' That sorta thing. And it dawned on me while she was telling me the story that that's exactly the feeling society wants us to get from police. We're supposed to be afraid of drug dealers, even though they rarely hurt anyone but each other and we're supposed to trust and feel safe around cops, even though their job is not to keep us safe, but to keep us obedient."
