The Week In Pop: From The Earliest MP3 To The Latest Britney Spears, A Pop History Of Suzanne Vega’s “Tom’s Diner”

“Tom’s Diner” is one of those songs you know even if you don’t realize it. Suzanne Vega’s signature song — written about the same NYC diner they used for exterior shots in Seinfeld — has been remixed, covered, and sampled so many times by so many musicians that its melody is basically imprinted on our… More »

Da Mafia 6ix – “Go Hard” (Feat. Yelawolf) Video

Last week, Da Mafia 6ix, a new group made up entirely of former Three 6 Mafia members, announced their existence with a new banger called “Go Hard,” which was one of our favorite songs of the week. And now there’s an appropriately chaotic video for the song, which features all the crew’s members, and guest… More »

Da Mafia 6ix – “Go Hard” (Feat. Yelawolf)

Three 6 Mafia started, more than two decades ago, as a messy and furious Memphis stomp-rap crew, its unstable membership built around the nucleus of producers DJ Paul and Juicy J. Slowly, everyone left the group until it was down to just the Paul/Juicy duo. And now, with Juicy gone off to unlikely late-career solo… More »

Eminem – “Berzerk” Video

Eminem’s video for his aggro back-to-basics single “Berzerk” just hit the internet, and it’s as cartoonishly ugly as every Eminem video ever. It’s also, like every Eminem video ever, probably more fun than it should be. It mostly revolves around Em in a room with a gigantic boom box, and it also has copious use… More »

A$AP Rocky – “1Train” (Feat. Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson & Big K.R.I.T.)

On “1 Train,” a massive six-minute posse cut from his forthcoming LONGLIVEA$AP album, A$AP Rocky has lined up pretty much every single rapper who’s had the internet going nuts in the last couple of years, setting them all up to go in over a slow-rolling Hit-Boy beat. Just recruiting this many great rappers on one… More »

Download Yelawolf Heart Of Dixie Mixtape

Yesterday, motormouthed Alabama rap technician Yelawolf released his first mixtape since Trunk Muzik, the great 2010 tape that established him as a force. The new tape is called Heart Of Dixie, and it’s a fairly minimal affair: Only 10 tracks, with no guest rappers. Fellow Alabaman M-16 produces the entire thing. Download it for free… More »

Yelawolf – “Hard White (Remix)” (Feat. T.I. & Slaughterhouse)

For the remix of his rabid club banger “Hard White,” redneck rap hero Yelawolf has recruited five guys who, like him, can rap really, really quickly: Finally-free Atlanta monarch T.I. and the four members of disgruntled-B-lister supergroup Slaughterhouse. Every last guy on the remix goes in hard, even Joe Budden, and it’s a joy to… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This week’s music-video MVP was whoever was responsible for researching New York signage in Kindness’s “Cyan” video. That must’ve taken a lot of work! As good as that video was, though, it couldn’t make it onto this week’s list. There’s just too much great stuff out there. Let’s get cracking. More »

Yelawolf – “Up In The Club” (Feat. Lil Jon) Video

The new video from palefaced fast-rap machine Yelawolf indulges in a whole ton of club-rap video cliches: Butt shots, gratuitous alcohol consumption, random violence, Lil Jon yelling. But it’s a pretty good video anyway, mostly because it gives all those cliches a scuzzed-out white-trash twist. Yela and his friends pull up in pickup trucks and… More »

Yelawolf – “No Hands” Video

Hey rappers! Don’t have enough of a budget to stage a full-on car chase in your video? The excitable Alabama MC Yelawolf has a solution for you: Include a crappy video-game approximation of one! Despite its goofy graphics, director Erick Peyton’s video succeeds, largely on the strength of the hard-stomping track itself and Yelawolf’s freakily… More »
