Over the weekend I had the chance to check out some new music videos from 2 of my favorite artists: T.I. and Plies. Certified King of the South, T.I. just dropped his 10th album entitled “Dime Trap”. While hot single Wraithe with a hot feature by Meek Millz keeps climbing the Billboard charts, T.I. has now dropped the video to The Weekend featuring Young Thug and Swizz Beatz. Check it out below:
On Thursday, Plies made an Instagram video promoting that a new video featuring Kevin Gates was going to drop on Friday titled All The Above. I assumed that this song was going to be about a love interest due to ALL the flowers I seen in Plies background as if he got a boo to be giving them out to! He must’ve forgotten that I been his “Shawty” since 2007 *TUH* LOL I thought this was going to be a weird collab, but actually it is not! Check it out below:
On Sunday during one of 216 The Beat’s Hit Or Miss Show #team216thebeatcleveland got the chance to be introduced to the featured artist of the day, Maniac Blac. What’s funny is, his name had me thinking he was going to be rapping about some gangsta shit! Actually, I feel like you can take some knowledge from his music. For example, the video to the single Luv Is A Feeling featuring J Ride & Dj Krucial is about a man who is so involved with the street life that even after his woman tells him how he seems to choose the streets over her, but unfortunately does not thinks about it until he is taking his last dying breath. I know…DEEP..right?? Sadly to say that is the biography of a lot of hood rich friends & family we love. Check the video out below & make sure to comment!!!
Hey guys! I swear this week has been one hell of an overwhelming WEEK!!!! The plus is that it’s the weekend & now I can rejoice & be happy in it! LOL We have some nice music releases today even though I thought Ella Mai & Quavo projects were going to drop today, but I was wrong! Quavo and Ella Mai’s projects will both be released next Friday the 12th so stay tuned!!
Here’s my picks of new albums I know you will enjoy:
