Joey Bada$$ - "Land of the Free" - {Official Video}

I've been following Joey Bada$$ career since his first Mixtape 1999 and I must say his style has definitely changed.  Not for the worst I might add but definitely a more worldly appeal.  

Nevertheless his rhymes are always message driven so the core of his music has remained the same. After listening to this a few times I've learn to appreciate the beat which seems a bit sluggish for me.  The bars no doubt are the focus on this joint be sure to check it out below.

Ezko - "Rampage" - {Official Video}

 Ezko is a powerful lyricist who intricately laces very philosophical messages in his music while still retaining a level of social appeal. The video for "Rampage" artistically depicts the battle many youth face when being bombarded by pressure from their peers along with the media to succumb to an idolized lifestyle. 

It also metaphorically presents this battle as a spiritual one resembling that of a demonic possession that forces it’s host to behave in accordance to the stereotypical rappers mentality. Checkout the video below, now this is what great HipHop is all about.

Sean Price - "Definition Of God" - {Audio}

One of HipHop's greatest lyricist and Master of Ceremonies Sean Price will always be missed by his core fans, myself included.  His career had it's ups and downs but just when it was rising again, like Michael Jackson & Prince he was gone.  Despite his huge persona Sean lived a private life, most of it was a mystery.  If you asked him he would say, " I love the Rap but I hate the Game...". 

Sean only did a handful of interviews or appearances.  After going back and fourth with Duck Down Records he became the CEO, which was a huge win for a brotha from Brownsville, NY.  Checkout the latest release from the Sean Price archives.

Skip Marley - "Lions" - {Official Video}

For most of your guys you probably are saying "Who the F#@! is Skip Marley?", well he's the grandson of Bob Marley from his daughter Cedella Marley.  I was a little skeptical at first but the young lion has talent and brings a different twist to the Reggae genre.
