A$AP Rocky x Goldie

Rocky in Paris! The video to the Hit-Boy produced summer hit is out already and it’s great. It’s the best video Rocky has been in. Driving around the champs, rolling in an old school classic in Paris is a great sight to see. A$AP Yams doing the Dame Dash dance is another highlight.

Ps it’s nice to see Rocky rocking a Pigalle tee shirt because it’s one of our favourite areas in Paris.

Asap Rocky x Goldie

We are posting this behind the scenes video for Asap Rocky’s latest single Goldie for two reasons. The first is the interaction with producer Hit Boy whom we adore. Not just because he made Paris but also Lay It On Me, Drop The World amongst others. A lot of talk leading up to the release of the single was wondering how Rocky was going to handle a Hit Boy beat, instead we get a wonderful combination of both of their sounds. The second reason why it’s getting a post is that it’s a great track. I may lack the initial thrill of Peso or Purple but it’s really quite accomplished. Expect it to be everywhere soon, because this unlike some of his other tracks will really work in the club.

D’banj x Oliver Twist

So the mega hit finally has a video, well an official one. The Don Jazzy produced song has been ruling the Uk airwaves and clubs get the visual treatment. There are a few things to look out for:

D’Banj is actually wearing clothes that Fagin would wear but not using his trusty Harmonica

The Oliver twist in this video is internet comedian Bricka Bricka aka white guy dancing to azonto

Subtle framing of Big Sean when the Nicki Gniash line is said.

Official Cameo list feature Eddie Kadi, Sneakbo, Hit Boy, Mike Dean, Pusha T and Kanye West as well. Oh and MANNIE FRESH.

This is the second collaboration between Mo Hits and Good Music, the first being Lift Off on the Watch The Throne album.

Chase N. Cashe x Wish I Was In Vegas

It continues from the excellent Gumbeaux with stellar production from the likes of Hit Boy ( N*ggas in Paris and Lay It on Me Fame) and Araabmuzik (Diplomats producer turned MPC mistro). His lead single Wish I Was in Vegas features him performing in Vegas and in various hotspots in the city of sin inclduing The Cosmopolitan aka my dream hotel. It is directed by Jonathan Andrade.
