Burn Money Music Presents: Bridge City Cypher #3

RC Spitta, Kid Indigo and the rest of the Burn Money Music camp light it up (both literally and figuratively) in this premeditated cypher vid. I’ll admit, I’m not too familiar with the squad, but I like what I hear and their studio space looks pretty awesome.  Don’t be swayed by the nonchalant opening bars, these

Sadistik – God Complex [VIDEO]

Seattle rapper Sadistik dropped Alters back in April and his second single from the new project is wild. Impressive lyricism meets the ever-so-clean camera of Tim Slew for blasphemously gorgeous results.

WOHM favorite Black hippie Astro King Phoenix is back, applying his metaphysical style to a curiously worldly song featuring Taylar Elizza Beth. The two minute diddy is just enough to wet your whistle. Check it out.

J Plath ft. Stewart Villain – Jump Shot (Prod. By YT808)

I saw Stewart Villain last month at TheTHESIS, he insisted that he was done rapping… Yeah, whatever Stew.
