21 Savage Addresses Racism In “Nothin New” Video

Published

on

21 Savage uses the latest single off of “Issa Album” to tackle police brutality.

21 Savage is a man of many layers. While his name is Savage, he’s proven there’s depths to his character. He came into the rap game with a menacing presence. His monotone voice and lack of expression coincides with what he’s been through. He’s told his story in his music and interviews while addressing the violence and murder he’s witnessed while in the streets. Now that he’s in a better position, both financial and socially, he’s able to speak on a larger matter at hand. Today, he tackles police brutality and the complexity of being black in America in the video for “Nothin New.”

21 Savage’s latest video is a glimpse into the struggle of being black in America. The video opens up with notable clips of Colin Kaepernick, Barack Obama and Lebron James. While Colin Kaepernick discusses the issues with both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, it later cuts to a clip of Obama speaking on Kaepernick’s choice to kneel during the anthem. Then it shows the famous clip of Lebron James’ unapologetic response to calling Trump a “bum.”

The video later shows 21 Savage at an funeral, a clip that later unfolds into the video’s message. The visuals for “Nothin New” follows a young girl whose mother is an addict and her father in prison. It later shows the same child robbing a store before being followed by the police and getting shot and killed. It’s a deep video that deals with the systemic racism in America while showcasing it through the eyes of a young girl who lived through the cycle.

“Nothin New” was a stand-out record on his album, Issa Album. It was a brutally honest effort where 21 Savage confronts racial inequality in America through his own eyes. It’s also the first visual he’s released off of the project since it’s release in June.

Interview : ZAC FTP Sits Down With Complex News

Published

on

ZAC, founder of the illusive street wear mainstay FTP, also know as F*** The Population, sits down with complex news to discuss the brands growth, working with iconic brands, and remaining anonymous.

During the interview, Zac took the time to disclose a potential 10 year anniversary store opening for the acronymed brand, as he isn’t quite sure that FTP needs a storefront where people can go to and shop at on a daily basis.

For the past, ten to twenty years, streetwear mainstay like MRC Noir, Supreme and FTP have been using the ostensible demarketing strategy, which could be impaired by having a storefront.

In the video, we are lucky to learn a bit more about Skyler broker, self-proclaimed warehouse manager and chilhood friend of Zac, who recalls a police raid at their facilities.

In other news, do you guys remember when the January ’07 pop end up in a riot ? here is a link … Read more

Disclaimer: We would like to issue a statement as we have been FTP customer in the past. No matter how hyped is the brand and only god knows how much we love the brand you should stick to buying casual stuff like tshirt and sweater since the quality of certain item we bought was not up to our expected standard.

You can also find his extensive 2015 interview with Adam Grandmaison for No Jumper here.

Smokepurpp Drops “Audi 2” Videoclip Easing us Into “Deadstar 2” Tape

Published

on

Second videoclip in view of the upcoming release of “DeadStar 2”, SmokePurpp who has been taking his time on its release returns slowly from the shadows with his lead-up single called “Audi 2” produced by Ronny J.

The overall feeling is close to microwaved music, like the pasta dish from lunch time that you warm up once again. No energy is shared in the music video, only that 808 pound, signature of Ronny J’s production with a cipher that will largely please fans but adds nothing to the genre.

Sorry for killing the vibe but we ain’t trying to hype s**t up is it doesn’t move us …

However, Deadstar 2 releases on December 13 and we will listen to it and review it … Hope he will do better than that.
