POD Photos: Future and the ‘Nobody Safe Tour’ in Dallas

posted by Ruben June 25, 2017

We headed into the weekend to the tune of Future, Tory Lanez, and A$AP Ferg which rolled into the Starplex Pavilion in Dallas. I was in the venue to capture some of the best moments from their latest stop of the Nobody Safe Tour. 

The star behind the major hit “Mask Off” performed that and all the dope hits he’s had throughout his career, making sure everyone in Texas can see why he’s one of the biggest names in Hip Hop. Tory Lanez himself is looking fit to take over a venue like this as a headlining act any time soon. A$AP Ferg for his part’s got the energy, the bravado, and the stage presence to put on a hell of a show wherever he takes over the mic.

Future Shares Visual For “Mask Off” Starring Amber Rose

posted by Oscar May 5, 2017

The music video for the undisputed song-of-the-year, “Mask Off” has finally been released. Directed by Colin Tilley, Future has described it as “the movie,” and it stars Amber Rose with a guest appearance by DJ Esco.

The pair are shown driving around the streets, as a mob that includes Future and other masked peoples convene after looting and breaking into stores and homes. It’s wild and raucous, so it’s fitting for the official-unofficial anthem of 2017. Check that out above.

Behind The Beat: Best Hip-Hop Samples of 2016

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. Through each year its interesting to see how producers continue to evolve and dig up never before used samples for a memorable song. 2016 was no different, as many producers found diamonds in rough, creating hits that will be played for years. Here’s my list of my favorite samples used in 2016:
