Former boy band frontman Omarion has been fairly quiet on the music tip since dropping his 2014 Sex Playlist album. He finally sonically reemerged with the release of not one but two singles!
The MMG crooner recently unleashed the visuals for his tantalizing tune coined 'BDY On Me," and Dancehall-inspired riddim, "Distance." Looking forward to hear what else Maybach O has in store for us on his forthcoming project Reasons. After all, he does a commendable job at reinventing himself.
Check out the music video for his latest banger "Distance," shot in South Africa below:
Nowadays, it's rare to see an artist's music video that is equally captivating as their respective single. The Weeknd is one of a very select few that can do both!
Abel's cinematic visual for his Starboy standout "Reminder," makes the banger even more potent as it features theXO crooner living it up in LA with a superstar crew and babes, who are just as exotic as the whips he drives in.
My former BAPE coworker Kid Cudi returned to national television on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with a live, orchestra-filled performance of "Kitchen," my favorite track from his latest studio album Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin'.
Cudi seems to be in good spirits even though he didn't move much in his usual cheery manner during the set. I hope all is well with him!
Supreme is gearing up to savagely dominate 2017 not only with an epic collaboration with Louis Vuitton,but also by their flashy offerings for the Spring/Summer season.
Equipped with an array of striking jackets, Sade printed tees, cardigans and vests, the line up is surely leaving Hypebeasts all over the world (I say that in the nicest way possible), more parched than a stranded camel in the Sahara desert!
Check out some of my favorite looks below and keep your eyes peeled as the collection releases on February 16 at the brand's New York, LA, and European stores. They'll be dropping on February 18 in Japan.
Tyga finally releases the video for his flashy single "Gucci Snakes," featuring Desiigner rightfully in the heat of New York Fashion Week.
Directed by legendary director Hype Williams, the clip features the Gucci draped, G.O.O.D Music duo performing in an ambient colored soundstage, while B-roll footage of a sexy video vixen and real life snakes are sporadically revealed.
This song plays a huge part in my writing career because I referenced it in my very first published article for Grailed (haha). Check it out by clicking HERE.
Syd aims to continue her glorious musical run since The Internet 's 2015 Grammy-nominated album Ego Death, with the release of her solo project entitled Fin.
The buzz cut songstress truly hit the bullseye with her latest sonic compilation! The project was such an incredible body of work that it was difficult to choose only one song as my favorite cut. After a tedious process of elimination, Syd's scorching "Body" single came out on top.
On February 10th, 2004Kanye West unleashed his historical debut Rap album The College Dropout underRoc-A-Fella Records. At first Kanye was ridiculed for his longing to become a legitimate rapper, but after this legendary project came out he had the last laugh.
Seven-time Grammy nominated artist Chance The Rapper recently unveiled the music video for his Coloring Book standout track, "Same Drugs."
Directed by Jake Schreier, the clip finds the Chicago bred crooner playing a grand piano alongside a dear puppet friend, who appeared throughout his Magnificent Coloring Book World Tour. The five year old me would be absolutely terried of this music video due to my old fear of puppets!
In any case, Chance somberly removes himself from the musical scene (literally) and wanders off revealing a slew of other puppets working in busy television studio. I'm not sure what all of this symbolizes but it probably signifies the inner child that is in every hardworking adult.
Let me know your thoughts after watching the clip below:
We all know Pharrell Williams is an avid art collector so it's only suitable that he became one himself. If what I just wrote went over your head, I simply meant to imply that the mega-superstar has been immortalized into an incredibly life-like doll!
As part of their Real Action Heroes line (RAH), Medicom Toy paid homage to Skateboard P by turning him into an action figure. The Japanese brand is known for making art pieces rather than conventional toys, and this particular figure continues to prove just that. Threaded in his memorable 2014 Grammy Award getup, the doll is also fully equipped with Pharrell's accessories, including his watch, bracelet, carabiner and of course Vivienne Westwood aka Arby's hat (just a joke, sorry OG).
Furthermore, the 11.8' inch doll comes with a display stand and interchangeadble wrist parts for various wrist actions of your choosing.
We're a long way from Master P's "make em say uhh," days but the superstar mogul still remains as one of the most prolific players in the Hip Hop arena.
Recently, Mr. Percy Miller paid a visit to The Breakfast Club and dropped some much needed knowledge to the masses, especially to young artists who are trying to legitimately leave their mark in the music industry. Percy speaks on various subjects such as the value of hardwork, today's political climate and doubters on social media. "I don’t care about social media. Most of the people on social media…if you got time to be on social media we know you don’t have nothing positive going on. You just negative, you a hater," states P. Sounds pretty harsh I know, which is why I think he clarified his statement by saying “think about it, if you talk about somebody and you know you’re not where you need to be at. That’s what I’m saying, it’s a waste of time. So I try to motivate the next generation through social media." Mr. Miller also brought along his artists, singer Paloma Ford and 17-year-old rising rap sensation Marcus Clae to the show.
Shout out to Solange who handpicked P to talk his sh*t on her critically acclaimed A Seat at The Table, album because the man truly is a living representation of someone who made it from the dirt, on his very own terms.
I could sit here and continuously write down the epic quotes from Master P's interview, but you can watch it yourself below. Enjoy and take notes!
