Big K.R.I.T. - Pay Attention Video

Big K.R.I.T. is known for hitting up the strip clubs. K.R.I.T. was possessed by 'juke joints' with beautiful women, liquor poured up in his cup, and booty popping music to throw dollars to. Featuring Rico Love, Pay Attention has the perfect tempo for the strip club with an added incentive of a softer RnB sound. As for the video itself, simple, but stays true to style with the focus being on K.R.I.T. rapping the lyrics of the song. There are tons of cuts of K.R.I.T. with a sexy young lady in scantily clad clothes, and Rico Love melts women to his voice on the hook. Big K.R.I.T. should "Pay Attention" to those women, because the camera pays close attention to every move those ladies make!

It was a matter of time before K.R.I.T.'s incredible and enlightening music that's holds significant stance in the Hip Hop game which entitles his footprint into the mainstream music industry.

Wiz does it again and brings a crew of heavy hitters in the Hip Hop game with the We Dem Boyz Remix featuring Rick Ross, SchoolBoy Q, Nas.

Not only does Wiz slow down the beat with a old school synthesizer in the background but the remix has a more intriguing sound to the hook of "hold up, we dem boyz".

Produced by RMBjustize & Sledgren this remix to We Dem Boyz is arguably an upgrade to the previous track. If the remix indicates anything to Wiz Khalifa fans, is the fact, Wiz is still capable of making decent for a long time to come.

JL of B.Hood - Brain Scatter 2 Album

JL has came along way from starting in the Hip Hop streets of Kansas City, but now JL of B. Hood is making new waves in Vegas NV. Brain Scatter 2 album is stemming from the earlier success of the first Brain Scatter album. The hangover momentum from his previous Brain Scatter album, JL's Brain Scatter 2 has 16 tongue twisting tracks with a beats that rattles the bass!

The sequel (Brain Scatter 2) only shows the artistic growth that JL has inquire throughout his accelerated career. In Brain Scatter 2, JL has the ability to convey a intriguing sound, and composes tracks that tells a story of his life, speaking on hard times and the DIBKIS progressive movement of music.

Take note on the speedy delivery that the DIBKIS Remix track brings to the table, featuring Ces Cru, Joey Cool, and Info Gates. Another track to pay close attention to is What You Heard featuring Codak Carter and Jesus-Divine. What You Heard slows down the tempo some, but JL's signature "choppa style" rap shines through tastefully with the heavy west coast sounds pushing through the bass line. Paying tribute to his lost ones in his life, JL's Never Gone track cuts deep into his internal struggle of letting go of someone that lives on in the heavens. The spirit of Zoo will be "Never Gone" and lives through JL's musical talents.

Brain Scatter 2 allows for listeners to grasp the internal thought process of JL's musical vault. The mind of a musical mad man, JL also has controlled and calculated lyrical content that can gives us chills over here at MWS. Listen to the entire album here on MWS, but we highly suggest supporting local music in purchasing the album and become apart of JL's journey by clicking download.

B.o.B - "LAMBO" ft. Kevin Gates and Jake Lambo

If you make a hip hop song with the theme being fast cars, be sure to have an awesome whip to stand next to in the video. B.o.B does just that with his track and music video called "LAMBO". Featuring two up and coming artists Kevin Gates and Jake Lambo, the three emcees basically rap about the fact that they only drive foreign cars with custom paint jobs and suicide doors. Not much to explain about the video but the cars are probably fast and we over here at MWS wish he had one to drive to work in!
