posted by Oscar June 27, 2017

Last night saw the inaugural NBA Awards, which saw Drake host a night celebrating the best of the premier basketball league in the world. Drizzy showed off his comedy chops not only with his opening monologue, but he also participated in a couple of sketches that proved the Canadian rapper got plenty more to offer in the comedy realm beyond “Hotline Bling” memes. The highlight sketch featured Drake and Will Ferrell school some ball players, which included DeMar DeRozan, how to properly react to your team making clutch shots! “The Jenga,” “The Gossip Queen,” and “The Prom” are all fire celebrations that we’re expecting (/hoping) to see this upcoming NBA season. The Obi-Wan might be a stretch tho… See that above.

You can also check out an extras clip with other handshake celebration like the helicopter” and the “Lavar Ball” that are dope, plus a Get Out sketch and a press conference one below. Continue Reading

posted by Luis Hernandez December 20, 2016

Samples have always been the foundation of hip-hop since the beginning, from a Dj scratching different songs together to producers flipping a beat over for a hit single.

posted by Luis Hernandez December 15, 2016

 

While many of us were amazed with the success of the independent phenom Chance the Rapper, there was one artist making similar historical moves overseas. It was Skepta, an independent artist from England, creating waves never before seen in British hip-hop. Skepta has been around for a minute making music since 2007, however, 2016 was the breakout moment for the rapper. Skepta is the kingpin of the grime music, which combines many different genres from reggae to dancehall, over high levels of bass and drums, rarely seen inside America. Aside from the ridiculous beats, the insanity of grime lies in the schizophrenic rhyming over each song, switching up flows at extremely fast rates, alongside dropping some crazy bars.

For their latest collab video, Future and Drake come together on the soccer pitch to command their respective teams of ladies in the visuals for their new song “Used To This.” Perhaps the icing on the cake here is not only seeing both squads in Mexico jerseys, but we also get to see both leading men sporting our motherland’s home and away kits too!
