BEST OF 2011: FEATURES

0 comments

I'll start with features because this category isn't about artist and their song.  Every other category has more to do with the artist themselves and their product.  This is my opinion so you don't have to agree...in my eyes these are the guest appearances that made you forget whose project you were listening too.  This about that extra addition that made you run the track back or go yo is that...?

DRAKE f/ LIL WAYNE & TYGA - THE MOTTO (MUSIC VIDEO)

0 comments

The song everyone hates to love and the video everyone loves to hate...it wasn't a game changer (nor do I think I should be) but at least they went to the Bay to pay homage correctly. Mistah F.A.B., Droop-E and of course E-40 make an appearance.


TERRACE MARTIN f/ AB DA BUSINESS - PLASTIC CUPS & BLUNTS (MUSIC VIDEO)

0 comments

Video from Terrace's EP he dropped after Locke High 2.  The EP was called Thoughts From Detention, this song is called Plastic Cups & Blunts and features the homie AB.  Also saw a cameo from my fam LJ. I introduced him to ya'll years ago as AveStar LJ.  Hi-Tek on the beat, something to vibe to, enjoy.


FREDDIE GIBBS f/ DOM KENNEDY & POLYESTER - MENACE II SOCIETY (MUSIC VIDEO)

0 comments

Fresh video courtesy of Freddie Gibbs featuring the Leimert homie Dom Kennedy as well as the fam Polyester.  Heard the homie Jason Madison was behind the visuals.  If you haven't seen this yet watch it, if you have watch it again, there's nothing wrong with repeated views.  You can find the mp3 on that Cold Day in Hell project from Gibbs.

I took some photos at this event and now Behind the Hustle drops their recap video on the dope event.  This gives a more in-depth look at what they were looking to do with this event.  It's necessary because things like this give the youth a better idea and direction of how to make their way through these industries.  I talked with Mega about this event and he said these are much needed across the board.  Hoping to see more soon.  Be on the lookout for more events and content from Behind the Hustle right here.
