We Cut Corners
“The Male Mind”
Selected from Nialler9.
Video find of the week -
Dublin guitar & drums duo, We Cut Corners‘s “The Male Mind,”
masterfully animated by Rémy M. Larochelle -
the song itself can be a bit over the top at times,
but still ends up winning you over one way or another
& the video is one of the better ones we’ve seen as of late.
SUPPORT: We Cut Corners – Today I Realized I Go Home Backwards OUT NOW
Easily one of the most captivating videos in recent memory,
Seattle emcee Raz (formerly Razpy)
delivers an attention-grabbing, raw performance
with nothing other than a well-utilized classical score behind him,
& a well-shot, self-directed visual to go along with it.
If you only check for one new artist in this post – let it be this.

Tame Impala -
Typically, “trailers” for anything music-related thats not a full-length film
are just redundant & useless -
& to be fair, this one probably isn’t all that much different
in that respect.
However – the sophomore album from Australia’s Tame Impala,
the follow-up to 2010′s Innerspeaker
is something we’re personally looking fwd to
much more than the average release,
so we figured its worth including on those grounds alone.
SUPPORT: Tame Impala – Lonerism COMING SOON
“Poetic Justice II”
Similar to Ka,
Bronx emcee $amhill is an example
of how raw, gritty, lyrics-focused NY hip-hop
can be done in a modern day setting w/o falling to the pitfalls
of the often boring “traditionalist” stereotypes.
Produced by frequent
Mos Def Yasiin Bey collaborator, Preservation
& directed by Video Music Box founder, Ralph McDaniels -
$am presents his latest single/video, “Poetic Justice II”
from his forthcoming EP, The Preface.
Selected from Steady Bloggin.
SUPPORT: $amhill – The Preface EP COMING SOON
It’s pretty rad.
SUPPORT: Death Grips – The Money Store OUT NOW
“Arm In Armaggedon
Here’s a dope new remix from one of our favorite up-and-coming producers right now,
D33J of the Wedidit Collective -
heard here completely flipping “Arm In Armaggedon”
from Doseone of Anticon‘s latest release, G Is For Deep.
You can stream it before downloading below.
Selected from XLR8R.
DOWNLOAD: Doseone “Arm In Armageddon (D33J Remix)”
Nice new one from
Chicago juke producer
& TekLife rep, DJ Manny -
putting his own footwork touch
on the ever-popular Etta James “Good Feeling” sample.
ALSO SEE: DJ Earl – Audio Fixx (feat. DJ Manny)
Maybach Music Group
(Rick Ross, Gunplay, Meek Mill, Stalley & Wale)
feat. Kendrick Lamar
(prod. Lee Majors)
In this week’s You’ve Probably Seen This One By Now section,
we present “Power Circle”
which finds Rawse’s MMG crew in rare form
along w/ guest Kendrick Lamar – who alongside Meek Mill, easily steals the show,
in a track thats easily tied w/ “Oldie” as Posse Cut Of The Year
(not that there’s too many other contenders).
