Joey BadA$$ - Underground Airplay Ft. Smoke Dza & Big K.R.I.T.

The new kid on the Smokers Club team, Joey BadA$$ comes through yet again with another tough track featuring Smoke Dza and Big K.R.I.T. as all three basically go in on a cyphered out beat. Underground Airplay allows all three artists to explain their despise of mainstream music and it's ability to saturates real hip hop with commercialized trap rap.

Big K.R.I.T. directly takes a stab at critics that had issues with his debut album Live From The Underground. Joey BadA$$ brings his youthful but lazy approach to the track, which oddly fits well with the instrumental. Joey speaks truthfully about rebelling studio execs when he explains that censorship constrains his musical creativity. Smoke Dza aka Kush God, as most know him by, adds the element of finesse but the poetic bars lays the smack down on wack emcees when Smoke Dza proves who is the beast from the east.

Over Underground Airplay visual is classic hip hop and doesn't need a explanation as it enhances the visual appeal of the artist's protesting their rights in hip hop music.

Cash Hollistah - goRilla (Video)

The normally mild manner Cash Hollistah, goes straight hammer on his latest video goRilla. Cash Hollistah represented Kansas to the fullest with a heavy combo rational lyrical content plus a dope beat to run with.

The goRilla track defines hip hop as Cash steps outside of his musical box  and comes with a little harder and edgier single to makes sure listeners are paying close attention to his message. Directed, filmed and edited by Josh Hernandez for Imprimis Media, the goRilla visual brings the same intensity as the track plus the added dimensions of Cash Hollistah meticulously mastering his craft of hip hop, it is only suiting that Cash give us some quality music to vibe with.

Cash Hollistah aired the video during half time of this year's Super Bowl and the reaction was better than Beyonce's poor attempt of half time show. Midwest Sounds did the right thing and went straight goRilla on fools.

With the heads in the clouds and rolling first class everywhere Curren$y has some bars for days on this album. Choosin featuring Wiz Khalifa and Rick Ross, plays towards the classic hip hop characteristics of staying fly for the females, rolling in a high class rides, and make the haters hate the game.
