The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This happens to be a great week for the low-budget video, full of immediate grainy cinematography and big cheap ideas and strong visual sensibilities. For whatever reason, it's been especially great for energetic rap videos. I loved the offerings from Big K.R.I.T. and Big Baby Gandhi, but I couldn't find room for either one o… More »

Swizz Beatz – “Street Knock” Video (Feat. ASAP Rocky)

Swizz Beatz and ASAP Rocky are both magnetic music-video screen presences, and both of them show dangerous amounts of charisma in the video for "Street Knock," their feverish new AraabMuzik-produced collab. But neither one really emerges as the star of the video. Instead, the best moment belongs to deposed NBA superstar and cult hero Alle… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Kanye West's new video for "Lost In The World" is being positioned as a collaboration with a filmmaker rather than a "music video," and that's good, since it's a pretty shitty music video. If there's a sure bet in music videos, it's Mr. West, who tends to have a ton more vision and audacity tha… More »

ASAP Rocky – “Goldie” Video (NSFW)

This morning, ASAP Rocky dropped the video for his swollen, turtle-moving Hit Boy-produced single "Goldie," and all ASAP videos are pretty much immediate must-watch situations. This one has Rocky driving around Paris while resting his feet on the door of an extravagantly expensive convertible, which can't be all that safe. It also has lots and… More »

ASAP Rocky – “Goldie”

Right after NYC rap station Hot 97 premiered ASAP Rocky's new single, "Goldie," Rocky posted a download link for the track which is, uh, pretty convenient. It's big and braggadocio-heavy, thanks in part to Hit-Boy's production -- that fellow is on fire right now. Download below. More »

Theophilus London & ASAP Rocky – “Big Spender”

ASAP Rocky and Theophilus London recently spent some time in the studio together, and the result of that collaboration is the DJ Carnage-produced "Big Spender." Since it rides a vintage pop hook, it's not unlike another recent ASAP hook up. Stream it below. More »

Watch ASAP Rocky Perform In NYC Last Night

Though much praise has fallen on the lap of Harlem-bred rap upstart ASAP Rocky, last night's show at Irving Plaza was his true coronation as the scene's torchbearer; not only did he keep the stage clear so he could maximize his own performance (he has had trouble with this in the past) plenty of special… More »
