In light of Kevin Hart’s public infidelity, J. Cole uses him as a muse for the song and to star in his latest video. Sampling Janet Jackson’s Anytime, Anyplace; Kevin’s Heart is song of a man confessing his fear of commitment, his lack of knowledge of love, and his mischievous, selfish ways. Reminiscent of the Born Sinner track, Runaway. Kevin’s Heart shares intimate thought’s of a complacent man.

Check out the video above.

“I love her, I don’t want to lose her
I’m selfish, I know that I use her
My ego get stroked and I bruise her
My ego get stroked and I bruise her
My actions I know they confusin’
At home I look happy as usual
On the road I’m a mack, I’m a chooser
I’m a addict, I’m maskin’ that
Kevin’s Heart.”

Migos: A Cultural Treasure

Takeoff, Quavo, and Offset…the Migos.

The North Atlanta natives have taken the music world by storm. Having already been widely known for hits like Bando and Chirpin, the Migos’ career skyrocketed when Drake hopped on the remix to one of their biggest songs to date: Versace.
Just in case you needed a reminder of the super single:
%CODE1%
After the success of the upbeat bop, the Migos became the hottest group out. Going on to cross genres and collaborate with the likes of Frank Ocean, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Calvin Harris, and Fall Out Boy to name a few.

Where did this triumphant trio come from?


Quavious, Kiari, and Kirshnik, or; Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff are from Lawrenceville, GA. The nawfside of Atlanta. The rap group formed in 2009, but the three have been woven into each other’s lives from birth. Quavo is Takeoff’s uncle and Offset’s cousin.
Having such a close bond only made for better chemistry. (They lowkey are Destiny’s Child lol) Shortening the Spanish word for “friends,” their creativity and ingenuity speaks before you even get to hear their music.
Family ties make great for performing acts. Take The Jackson 5, The Wayans Family, Tia and Tamera Mowry…the list goes on.
Not only are the Migos music legends, they’re fashion icons. Drawing inspiration from the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson. Check out this video of the three expressing their eye for design and explaining MJ’s impact as they prepare for the Grammys

”I really want to thank Migos for making Bad and Boujee, it’s the best song ever.” – Donald Glover at the Golden Globes

The Migos received kudos across the board. Actors, singers, and athletes alike have all given praise to the trifecta.

Glover continues to say that the Migos are “The Beatles of our generation and don’t get enough respect.


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
A notion that I fully back. Subsequently, Bad and Boujee peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 list, ironically knocking down Rae Sremmurd & Gucci Mane’s Black Beatles. After reaching the #1 slot, Migos released their second studio album, Culture.
The album featured songs like: T-Shirt, Slippery ft Gucci Mane, Call Casting, and Get Right Witcha.
 
 
A year later they released the sequel, Culture II.

This time there is something different about the Migos. A bolder sense of confidence and creativity. This album features production from Hip-Hop elites Pharrell Williams & Kanye West as well as Metro Boomin, Ty Dolla $ign, OG Parker, Zaytoven, and Quavo himself.
The group has continuously sought out more engaging visuals for their music. Take the progression of their video narratives. They’ve successfully gone from 2 minute music videos to short films. Short films in which we get to see a glimpse of their personalities and what influenced them as children.
The videos for their singles Stir Fry and Walk it Like I Talk it, are especially fun to watch. They both bring a sense of nostalgia. In Stir Fry the trio assume the roles of Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in the 90’s classic Rush Hour. In the video for Walk it Like I Talk it, they take it back a littler farther, to our parents’ generation. On a full blown replica set, the Migos partied like it was the 70’s on Soul Train. With Drake and Jamie Foxx in cast for extra laughs.
%CODE3%
Soul Train served as a cultural oasis. Giving a platform to R&B, soul, dance/pop and hip hop artists, funk, jazz, disco and gospel artists.
And this ladies and gentlemen is why the Migos are culture treasures. In a span of fives years the Migos have taught us what a Bando is, they’ve given us fiery ad-libs to spice up our boring conversations—MAMA! They love Michael Jackson. Impressed Trap gawd LaFlare Gucci Mane. They’ve redefined male fashion, taught us how to dab accurately and overall they keep giving us nothing but the HITS!
We must protect and cherish the Migos at all costs

WATCH: Malcolm is Hoping to "Call You"

Malcolm releases a thoughtful visual for his song “Call You.”
Call You is a confession of regret, a tale of contemplation and a hope for redemption. Malcolm raps his love letter smoothly over the warm Prapi C produced beat. He opens admitting his guilt and wrongdoings. “I know I was moving funny like two left feet.” Reminiscent of J. Cole and Nas, Malcolm is authentic in his storytelling.
The Jay Visual opens as Malcolm sits at a kitchen table with a pen and paper in hand; as he sits racking his brain, the beat begins. He embarks on a journey thumbing through his memory of a lost love played by the beautiful Keyolo.

“Like a dropped pass it was getting outta hand.” He writes as the memories play across his mind. He’s contemplating sending a text, but refuses all thoughts for fear of rejection. But while scrolling the former flame’s Instagram, noticing how good she’s looking he can’t resist. He musters up the courage to call. Surprised that she answers he asks the famous question returning lover’s do “Wassup Stranger?”

Meet: Smoove Dinero

Smoove Dinero is an emerging artist from Bridgeport, CT who’s found a home in Brooklyn, NY. The 21 year-old rapper got his start in music at a young age. Having older cousins and uncles who rapped, young Smoove followed suit.
My uncles and older cousins & sh*t. They used to rap back in the day and they was the sh*t back then. They used to take me to the studio & after I knew that I wanted to be a rapper eventually, I started making beats when I was 13 & started Making legit music at 19-20.” He explained.

Dinero’s music style is edgy and upbeat. His music is for the lively at heart. He credits some of rap’s favorite artists as influences. Artists such as: Future, Young Thug, Zaytoven, Yung Gleesh, A$ap Rocky, Chief Keef and Fredo Santana. He also daunts a clothing style of his own, making it a point to be comfortable and yet fashionable.

 I asked “What’s your favorite project to have worked on so far?” To which he replied “D.O.A 2 so far.. not my best music but the process of making it was just fun. I would just get high af with the homies and bang out hella music. Positive vibes good energy. That’s very important in music today, have fun with it. I got some unreleased shit that’s fire. I just did a song on a Dolan beats too That shit gonna go dummy.”
The artwork for his music is intriguing. Dinero’s covers and videos all give me a cinematic feel. I wondered if he was a movie lover and binged watched shows for hours on end. One of his singles featured artwork similar to the Netflix original series Stranger Things (which I thought was cool lol).
%CODE66%
My theories were busted when he made it clear how things came together. He says that things fell in line by coincidence.
I wanted to know who made the killer beat for the banger “Monster.” “ My n*gga Akachi! “Lol it’s funny cause I never watched the stranger things but people was tellin me that’s what it sound like & even the video the intro they say that’s how the stranger things start off so yeah.”
We can expect some more crazy visuals from Smoove, until keep yup with Mr. Dinero on all social media platforms.
