Baltimore’s fastest upcoming emcee Phizzals returns this evening after releasing his highly anticipated video for his new single entitled, “TruE Step.” The uptempo, and always perky artist has been touring along the east coast, giving his live audiences a taste of what exactly the “TruE Step” is so that they can live the music rather then just listen. Kudos to Abeni Nazeer as he captures Phizzals and his entourage as they side-step any confusion as to the direction they are heading. Phizzals is bringing a new but familiar style to hip-hop that hasn’t been seen in years. Being called “Heavy P” by his fans that he calls “P-Gang” supports the many similarities and comparisons to the late great legend Heavy D. Hit the play button below and get ready to “TruE Step.”

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few days–even so, it might still have reached you–Future and Drake have a new mixtape-album on iTunes. Yes, they’re at it again.
Next week, it will likely debut at #1 on the Billboard 200, and on Twitter, it’s occupied a similar spot, instantly becoming pretty much the ONLY thing anyone who debates Hip-Hop on social media is talking about. So, the good folks over at Rukkusdecided to try and quantify the chatter, so they called this What A Time To Be Alive On Twitter.
Below is a comparative chart, broken down by song, showing just how much a particular song is being talked about, and standing that stat next to just how often someone is mentioning that a certain track is the album’s “best song.” There are some surprises, and some very interesting disparities, and you can check out a little more of their analysis here.
Ty Dolla $ign readies for his debut album Free TC with the release of his video for “Blasé”, a DJ Spinz-produced single featuring some of Atlanta’s most valuable players Rae Sremmurd & Future. Purposely set out to look like a pre-iPhone documentary, the direction is a low-fi picture that receives cameos from Tinashe and DeJ Loaf. Unfortunately, Future is not in the video but the intense live performance and party scenes compensate for the absence. Can we look forward to a remix with Thugger?
In terms of Hip-Hop, the New York City borough of Staten Island has not had many new faces emerge into the spotlight. With that said, Shoalin native Sha has been changing the narrative. Having collaborated with several notable talents and making his rounds in the club circuit with major DJs spinning his tunes in the nightclubs, The Park Hill area native reveals the visual for his breakthrough single “Patrick Ewing.” Named after the New York Knicks basketball legend, Sha likens his prowess in music and on the street to that of the NBA Hall of Famer. Be sure to pick up the single on iTunes and follow Sha on Instagram & Twitter @Sha225si.
Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj have been the underrated narrative throughout this summer, thanks to the overbearing nature of Drake and Meek Mill’s unique riff, but GQ is helping to highlight an intricate Hip-Hop relationship.
“I definitely think we have a normal relationship off-camera. We’re like any other couple in the hood,” started Nicki Minaj, in her interview with Mark Anthony Green, GQ‘s new Style Guy, “We’re growing as a couple and as people and as human beings, but we still have our careers. And I think probably the only thing that makes it un-normal is that we’re both successful artists, and that’s probably not normal. But other than that, our feelings are very normal. Like, if I were to speak to a hundred girls right now about what they go through with their boyfriend, we’d probably have stuff in common.”
The photos, which were shot by Ellen von Unwerth, picture Nicki and Meek rocking a variety of designer threads, going about what one would imagine is their daily business, including hopping out of ridiculous expensive cars, and counting money in the back of them. Check them out below, and read their full, insightful Q&A here.
