T.I. – “About The Money” (Feat. Young Thug) Video

T.I.'s new video for his new Young Thug collab "About The Money" is a classic example of a director -- Kennedy Rothchild, in this case -- doing too much. It's a busy video: Haphazard switching between color and black-and-white, words flashing onscreen, a wolf and a lady vampire showing up for some reason. More »

T.I. – “About The Money” (Feat. Young Thug)

On the new track "About The Money," one of the old gods of Atlanta street-rap joins forces with one of the new. Last week, T.I. debuted the video for "Turn It," the fiery and intense first single from Paperwork, the album he's planning to release later this year. And now he's linked up with… More »

T.I. – “Turn It” Video

Jeezy's new banger "Me OK" is not this morning's only example of a longtime Atlanta rap star going on attack mode. T.I. has a new single called "Turn It," which sounds like an 808 being used as a jackhammer. He also has a new video for said single, which features Tip arriving via helicopter… More »

Watch Katy B Cover Beyoncé’s “Drunk In Love”

Beyoncé's "Drunk In Love" is shaping up as one of the inescapable songs of the day, a dominant clarion call that packs in more catchprases per second than any song in recent memory. Just in the last several weeks, we've heard covers or remixes from James Blake, Angel Haze, Future, More »

Que – “OG Bobby Johnson (ATL Remix)” (Feat. T.I. & Jeezy)

One of the biggest street-rap hits of the young year is "OG Bobby Johnson," a lurching and ominous number from the Atlanta rapper Que. For the brand-new remix, Que has lined up verses from two of the biggest rap stars in his hometown, T.I. and Jeezy, who is apparently no longer Young. The song… More »

Future – “Sh!t (ATL RMX)” (Feat. Pastor Troy, Jeezy, & T.I.)

Yesterday, Future released one remix of his absolute banger "Sh!t," and it was a good one, featuring an angry and tough-sounding Drake issuing what sounded like a Kendrick Lamar response and Juicy J sounding more like Project Pat than he usually does. Today, Future's got another "Sh!t" remix, and this one's completely packed… More »

Snoop Lion – “No Regrets” (Feat. T.I. & Amber Coffman)

There are many questionable things about Snoop's fake patois-drenched reboot as roots-reggae uplifter Snoop Lion -- and perhaps, per the NYT, tapping fellow Caribbean appropriators Major Lazer to produce is chief amongst them. But since Snoop's already set down this path for a full album (Reincarnation), this bonus track here is at least a… More »

Lil Wayne – “Rich As Fuck” Video (Feat. 2 Chainz), Message To Fans

A week ago, I was frantically writing a Lil Wayne obituary in my head, frantically refreshing TMZ on my phone while attempting to enjoy the amazing and random-as-fuck Usher/Afghan Whigs set at SXSW.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

There were too many music videos this week. I had to devote a huge chunk to yesterday afternoon just watching all the ones I'd missed. And worse, there were too many good ones. How is anyone supposed to process all these entertaining music videos? It's fucked up. When a K-pop boy band makes a music… More »

Watch T.I. Perform With The Roots On Fallon

Last week, T.I. made his Late Night With Jimmy Fallon debut with a rambunctious performance of single "Ball" accompanied by Fallon houseband, the Roots.

The bangingest banger from Big Boi's recent album Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors is "In The A," the Atlanta superstar summit that also features on-fire turns from T.I. and Ludacris.

T.I. – “Sorry” (Feat. André 3000)

André 3000 barely ever raps anymore, but he has a rare knack for showing up two or three times a year and melting your entire brain. Case in point: "Sorry," an absolutely gorgeous new six-minute song with T.I., from Tip's new Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head album. It's an excellent song before André eve… More »

T.I. – “Go Get It” Video

In his new video for the low-key trunk-rattler "Go Get It," deposed and frequently-incarcerated rap king T.I. remains obsessed with the idea that he's simultaneously a street kid and an unbelievably rich guy. Maybe you just get that psychological split when you're a rich guy who can't stop going to jail. In any case, More »

From T.I. To TNGHT: A Look At Trap Rave

Do a search for "trap" on SoundCloud and you'll find more than 500 tracks uploaded with the tag in the last three days. What's interesting, though, are the labels that show up with the most frequency in the similar tags section: "bass," "club," "dance," "dj," "dubstep," and "electronic" appear right below the expected "rap," "hip-hop,"… More »
