Nitty Scott, MC ~ Skippin’ Clouds (Prod Yuri Beats) (Video) (@NittyScottMC)

In “Skippin’ Clouds”, Nitty Scott, MC takes on the roles of a depressed 50′s house wife, a 70′s socialite who likes to party, and even a grungy heroin addict as the visual explores drug culture in different eras. The song’s airy high provides the perfect backdrop for a walk down trippy lane, deep in a substance-induced trance as she raps about everything from Bob Marley to vicodin, and chakras. Whether taking drugs is about escapism, pure indulgence, or a quest to find deeper meaning, the stories show the duality of drug use and how they can lead to both pleasure and pain.

Five Steez ~ Slaving On The Plantation (Video) (@FiveSteez)

Up-and-coming independent Hip Hop artist, Five Steez, has released the much-anticipated music video for his song, ‘Slaving on the Plantation’ – a fan favorite from his 2012 debut album, ‘War for Peace’.
The music video, directed by The Board, shows the drudgery experienced by the average worker. Five Steez – in character as an employee – is seen waking in the morning and making his way to his office to work with a demanding boss.
Five Steez says that the song, produced by Inztinkz, is based mostly on his personal experiences. “I never realized how much it meant to people until I first performed it in 2010 long before the release of the album, and since then, I’ve always done it,” he says. “It transcends all barriers, including age and genre.”

Talib Kweli has been very prolific on the scene over the last year, with seemingly a never ending supply of well written verses flooding the blogs via remixes, guest spots, and b-side tracks. With his long-awaited LP, Prisoner Of Conscious finally hitting this year, for this episode of Hellafine Fridays, I hit up Talib about doing a post-album companion mix. He sent me the “Upper Echelon” acapella, rounded up some freestyles and b-sides, and “Freedom Of Information” was born.

JAY Z: The Samples [mixed by Chris Read]

Coinciding with the release of Jay-Z's twelfth studio album 'Magna Carta... Holy Grail', once again we dig in the vaults, this time to bring you a retrospective of some of our favourite source material from Jay-Z's 20+ year career. With a little bias toward the late '90s classics which forged his reputation as a major player, we take in samples sources from early 90s collaborations with Jaz and Original Flavor all the way through to 'Magna Carta... Holy Grail'. Many of the classics are represented and a few less prominent cuts too.

Stalley ~ Raise Your Weapons (@Stalley)

Ohio-native Stalley releases the second single from his forthcoming mixtape. Written as a reaction to the complacency of his generation, the Block Beataz produced "Raise Your Weapons" calls attention to the constant fight for justice. "We recorded the song a year ago," says Stalley. "We had a conversation about what's going on in our lives and the lack of substance and activism in our community."
The lyrics are a call to arms. A catalyst for turning complaints into a charge for what's right. "They say I'm the last of a dying breed," notes the rapper. "Someone who embodies the glories of success, but also embraces the failings of my path. This song is inspired by my own personal push forward, how it now parallels with larger societal trends, and a desire to want more for the people of this country."
Stalley's new mixtape is coming 8/08/13

Stand Your Ground
I am just one man but I know my power
It's the final call were in the final hour
And we must not divide as we march toward our future
Who are they to decide when they conspire to shoot yah,
Ahh, that could've been my mother, ohh, that could’ve been my brother
As sure as we rotate the sun and the earth revolves, get involved 3x
Stand your ground
They'll say I've lost my mind claim that I'm psychotic
He's a fucking traitor he's unpatriotic
But I learned in life truth it must be slated
And I know my rights they're un-alienated Descendent of the blood of slaves
Used to be the one afraid
Until I learned my souls divine amalgamate lets combine unify get in line and
Stand your ground
