A$AP ROCKY – GUNZ N BUTTER [FT. JUICY J]

A$AP Rocky drops off another visual accompaniment to his latest album ‘TESTING‘, this time for Juicy J collaboration ‘Gunz N Butter’.  It’s an absolute masterclass in branding, with the TESTING brand managing to remain front and centre despite rifling through a series of increasingly disturbing vignettes at blistering pace.  Children toting guns and smoking, animals…

PRO ERA – PEEP THE APROCALYPSE

You might be wondering why we’re reporting on an album that was released six years ago in 2012.  ‘Peep The Aprocalypse‘ is now available on all streaming platforms for the first time, and comes with a brand new track entitled ‘Know The Rules’, featuring Pro Era‘s Joey Bada$$, Kirk Knight and CJ Fly.  It’s the…

CHE LINGO – CIRCLES

Che Lingo premiered new track ‘Circles’ and its accompanying visual at an intimate listening party on North London.  It’s a song written after the realisation that, when it comes to matters of the heart, social media can be more of a hindrance than a help. “People always go to social media to try and work out…

ANDERSON .PAAK – OXNARD

Anderson. Paak’s new album ‘Oxnard’ was mixed and produced by Dr. Dre.  As such, it positively oozes West Coast.  It’s Los Angeles in the late afternoon heat, it’s palm trees on the eponymous Oxnard Beach, and its sound is every bit as in and of the area as any work of Snoop Dogg or N.W.A. …
