Wiz Khalifa - The Grinder (Video)

Wiz Khalifa starting to bring back the Kush and OJ days with new music that has a more complex sound to his music. The Taylor Gang leader is more detailed and has thought into his music nowadays, and we here at MwS have no issues with that.

Wiz Khalifa just released a new video called The Grinder and it shows Wiz in a serious hip hop moment as he speaks on thinking about the bigger picture while looking at the jar of the medicine, references of Wiz Grinding up the green and chasing the dream of making it big in hip hop.

Wiz Khalifa has exceeded all expectations that critics might have about his music but as most can see Taylor Gang is more than just a trend, it's a movement.

XV - Stone Cold (3:16)

XV jumps on the Dr. Dre/Kendrick Lamar Receipt beat and throws down a nasty freestyle reppin' our home the Tall-Town 316.

The development of XV and his musical movement has been a treat to see and XV's Stone Cold (3:16) gives a in depth look into Vizzy's roots with references of being unheard and being a comic book nerd. Now he is still reppin' that #L7 and holding down the 316 and Vizzy is starting to see his dreams come true.

Action Bronson, Riff Raff & Dana Coppafeel - Hot Shots Part Deux

Goofy looking and not your typical hip hop emcees; Action Bronson, Riff Raff, and Dana Coppafeel dropped a video called Hot Shots Part Deux. This a wild video and visually it was shot very well and has animation that is awesome.

Riff Raff is that crazy in real life this is no joke, he looks like Jaimie Kennedy as B-Rad off of Malibu's Most Want movie. Riff Raff brings the image look a strange charisma, and more swagged out threads than Lil B. But Riff Raff also has a every extensive vocabulary to shred up any beat that might cross his path.

Action Bronson is a smooth dude for such a big belly but like the Budda Monk the ladies love to rub him for good luck. Action Bronson is more than just a big guy, his rhymes are very complex, innovative, and striaght up off the wall weird. But Bronson jams if you don't know now is the time to get to know him before he becomes the next Master Chef of hip hop.

Dana Coppafeel has the classic Beastie Boy sound and we see the grill cheese being pressed up by the iron, now that's ratchet!

Freddie Gibbs Ft. Young Jeezy X T.I. - Pull Up

Freddie Gibbs isn't holding anything back when it comes to hip hop music. With the help from his mentor Young Jeezy and T.I., Gibbs' new track Pull Up is a powerful track with a lot of gangster attitude to back all of it up.

Gibbs, Jeezy, and T.I. all have styles that parallel one another but all have lyrical differences that vibe well.

Freddie Gibbs goes on a faster double time rhyme, while Jeezy smoother deliver allows for a great contrast. T.I. has the powerful voice and his delivery was crispy to wrap up the end of the track.

The song jams out, you will really enjoy Pull Up by Freddie Gibbs Ft. Young Jeezy and T.I.

Nas - Daughters

The Nas that once was could have been seen as the hard Brooklyn rapper that ran the block and shot up at rival gangsters. But after getting his grown man on, and Nas is now more conscious about positivity and progress to better society. Recently Nas has seen the hip hop culture influence negative cogitations as being acceptable leaving an urban society it without any positive enlightenment.

When Nas was producing classic albums like Illmatic his daughter Destiny was young and couldn't recall what her father was saying. Now that Destiny Jones has grown up, Nas has a message for his daughter.

Nas' new single is called Daughters and it is written to educate her and other young ladies out there to have respect for themselves and thrive above the influences of negativity. Nas also questioned himself as father, and wonders if he did enough to raise his daughter Destiny the right way.

Pusha T - Exodus 23:1

The controversy continues between Pusha T and Weezy F. Baby Hmmm.... Remember this beef started when Pusha T made a track Exodus 23:1 and took some major stabs at Weezy and YMCMB clique. Lil Wayne had a response that was barely sub par and the entire track was a poor attempt of a comeback track in a rap battle.

Pusha T won this battle and after hearing the track Lil Wayne, Pusha T took the Exodus 23:1 joint to the next level and made a graphic visual to end this battle between Lil Wayne and put everything to rest. The video does the Exodus 23:1 joint justice and shows why Pusha T won this battle.

As for Lil Wayne, maybe he is out match considering he doesn't even really rap anymore. Weezy has veered away from real hip hop music and started to become a pop sensation jumping on any track that would make money, so legit hip hop music takes a back seat now for Lil Wayne. Finally someone (Pusha T) in the game stepped up and took out the YMCMB monster. This beef might not be over but for now chalk one up for Pusha T.

Lupe Fiasco - Around My Way (Freedom Ain't Free)

Lupe Fiasco's new track Around My Way (Freedom Ain't Free) speaks volumes of Lupe's vision of the world. Lately, Lupe has seen a corrupt government and elitist culture hold down the common man, so he feels compelled to tell his fans.

Lupe writes music about the decline in society and the inability to have progressive thought and it's true just look at #swagglife. Lupe Fiasco has shown a more political approach to his music, and he does a quality job in not over doing it by simply bringing up current events and factual reasoning in his rhymes.

It's tough to really believe in hip hop music sometimes because most artist are well off in their bank accounts we can see this because of the nice clothes, fast cars, and first class travel arrangements so Lupe brings to light that there is another world. We can listen to Lupe Fiasco's music and find a more common ground about mainstream music/society.

Childish Gambino and Heems - Tell Me (Radio Rip)

Childish Gambino and Heems jump on track together that defines hip hop to the T. These two incredible emcees trade bars back and forth to make a sensational song called Tell Me.

When you hear this comedian turned emcee you wouldn't think that Childish Gambino had some serious bars. Childish Gambino is not your normal hip hop artist, but when he grabs the mic he becomes a natural. He can get your attention both on the TV screen but here on MwS he is snappin' off some good lyrics.

As for Heems from Das Racist, there is embedded hip hop culture through his entire sound. Lyrically, Heem is insightful and his delivery exudes confidence in his rhymes.

The two together on Tell Me is only a radio rip but we hope that these two make a Ep mixtape. Gambino and Heems both hit the current events and relative materialistic lines, the combo leaves knocks you off your seat.

2 Chainz and 50 Cent - Riot RMX

50 Cent and TITTY BOI are going hard on their gangster ish....! The Riot RMX is bringing out 50 Cent and 2 Chainz in the right light.

No POP music sensation with this joint, it is straight hip hop music to the fullest.  Even though we posted the Justin Bieber Boyfriend Remix with 2 Chainz on it, we know it was a marketing poly and not a true hip hop move for Titty Boi. But hey can't knock the hustle game!

Not much to say about the overall song as it explains itself. These to emcees are going to cause a riot in the hip hop game, and we will allow it.

David Banner Ft. Chris Brown - Amazing



The magnificent producer and emcee David Banner's new single Amazing has the Chris Brown factor with a little bit of Mississippi flavor.

This track from David is a instant club jammer and defines Banner game in the club when he spit to the ladies.

We In This Video - DJ Drama, Young Jezzy, TI, Ludacris and Future

Three of the most pronounced emcees in the "Dirty South" jump on a DJ Drama beat and blow up the joint. We In The video is a perfect example of hip hop going hard in the paint. We are lucky enough to get a hook from Future and that's about it, but that's a good thing HA.

Luda, Tip, and Jeezy are on their grown man business status. Jeezy mentions Freddie Gibbs as if he was passing the torch. Gibbs is Jeezy's understudy and it seem like Young Jeezy has some major plans for Freddi Gibbs. TI talks about evolving musical and lyrical, but keeping it real as the TIP game is way strong and hasn't slipped. Ludacris speaks about is new production of alcohol and how his business savvy mindset has provided life success. All three plus a voice box showed that they all have legitimate skill.

Naughty by Nature Ft. Tah G Ali - Respect

Here at Midwest Sounds we appreciate and Respect Naughty By Nature's ability to impact the hip hop image factor. In the midst of wack rappers out trying to be a real emcee, Naughty By Nature slaughters the idea of image being true to hip hop music. The Respect video directed by Nimi Hendrix, is grimy and straight hip hop to a T.

Hip hop music has made a turn towards image being more meaningful than talent and some say this bad for the industry, but nevertheless Naught By Nature found away to bring some light onto talent outweighing any images of wannabe rapper.

Naughty By Nature has been around for decades and if you love hip hop wave your hands and nod your head this is real hip hop. Where did the respect run to?

Prodigy Ft. Esther - Gangsta Love

One half of the hip hop duo Mobb Deep Prodigy is showing a more softer side. This hardcore NYC street emcee has more than enough credit in the Mecca of hip hop. So why not switch it up some and give some attention to the ladies, they deserve it.

Prodigy teams up with Esther, a young lady with style and talent that has the hook all locked up on the Gangsta Love track. Even though this obvious club banger is a different look for Prodigy it has some similarities to previous tracks coming out of the NYC that has a more softer side. Tracks like Biz Markie  Just A Friend, LL Cool J Doin' It, Ghostface Killah ft. Mary J. Blige All I Got Is You, and another Wu Tang vet Method Man ft. Mary J. I'll Be There For You are all classics that shows the romantic renaissance in NYC is pure greatness.

What else to do but "put my hustle down and get my money up" as Fly Spitta would say on the 1st Place video. The 1st Place track is coming off the Jet World Order album and a definite jammer. As a group the Jet Life's mentality has to be best perceive as being on top of "cloud 9", they are smoked out, creatively charged, and way better than the Jetsons.

Curren$y Ft. Wale - What It Look Like


Curren$y the Fly Spitta and Wale lay it down on the What It Look Like single off of Curren$y's Stoned Immaculate album, which is going to release June 5th.


The video is Curren$y and Wale doing what they know best and that is spitting some rhymes and smoking all day long. Oh not to mention the most bad ass whips, clothes, and women that might cross their paths. HA total man heaven but that's minute, what's real in the hip hop game is how to explain one's feeling within a given joint. The What It Look Like only explains their life in it's entirety as hip hop hustlers that make a livin' off of their written ability and attitude to back it all up.


As for the video for Curren$y and Wale are on another level with one mic and a small orchestra behind them rockin out. The video is so RAW and it only makes it better that Curren$y and Wale rip the track up.
