Video Trailer: “Hidden Colors 4 – The Religion of White Supremacy”


If you have not been enlightened to the “Hidden Colors” documentary series (currently released in a three part seires), I personally suggest that you find the time to view it. The series, produced by acclaimed author/speaker/podcaster Tariq Nasheed aka King Flex, was originally released to expose the hidden history of the melinated people of the Earth and to reveal the facts that were not taught in history class. Having evolved to cover the subjects of “The Power of Melanin” and “The Rules of Racism” in parts 2 and 3, the next installment of the series addresses “The Religion of White Supremacy”. #PRESSPLAY on the video to reveal what looks to be yet another solid installment to the series.

Video: Cam’ron – “U Wasn’t There”

“It’s KILLA!!”

Cam’ron, CEO of Diplomats Records and the front man of the Harlem, New York movement that flooded the early to mid 2000’s with music, dvds, liquor (Sizzurp, anyone?), merchandise, and legacy that expanded past their Rocafella Records debut….none other than Dipset!

Cam is busy with a lot of things behind the scenes as of now. You can catch him on social media making post on his Instagram account that are in the familiar Cam’ron style….very humorous to say the least. With plans to drop an album, “Purple Haze 2”, it has been stated by Cam to be his last one.

Cam recently dropped a single titled, “U Wasn’t There”, that details his story of growing up and eventually making it into the rap industry. He details who was there for him and what part they played in his success. To accompany the track is a video that brings together a picture slideshow and old video footage that helps weave Cam’s narrative. The track sounds like the classic Dipset sound and has Cam flowing in his signature fashion. #PRESSPLAY

Young Money songstress Shanell(who is also known by “SnL”) has linked with Atlanta by way of the Bay area producer, Zaytoven, to bring the latest of her mixtape releases. Dubbed “88 Keyz”, the project features 8 songs and three interludes from the host, Lil Wayne. With a few features to sport(which includes Autotune crooner T Pain and Atlanta rapper Bankroll Fresh), Shanell and Zaytoven proceed to make magic together. Zay, who is primarily known for his trap music sound and his work with Gucci Mane among others, seems to be at home when it comes to making the bedroom banging melodies that create the sound bed of this project. #PRESSPLAY

“Shanell and Zaytoven present 88 Keyz; the innovative, experimental project that is hosted by Lil Wayne and features Bankroll Fresh and T-Pain!

The collaborative project brings raw and playful lyrical content and combines Shanell’s pop/r&b vocals with trap inspired drums and classic piano courtesy of Zaytoven.

The project’s lead single “I Can Be Your stripper” begins with a sexy story dedicated to all of the women that don’t strip professionally but know how to put on a great private show for their special someone at home. The track features the king of stripclub anthems, T-Pain. 88 Keyz is a fun and creative experience that not only took both artists out of their norm but will gives fans a new and fresh spin on urban music.”

Video: Naughty By Nature – “God Is Us” ft. Queen Latifah

2016 marks the 25th annivesary of iconic rap group Naughty By Nature’s introduction to the world with their self titled debut album. Know internationally by their anthem rap songs “O.P.P.”, “Hip Hop Hooray”, and “Feel Me Flow”, they have built a legacy that has allowed them to tour and perform for the years that have come since their Flavor Unit days. Kicking off this new year, they bring the the single “God Is Us”, a mid tempo track that is filled with a positive message, delivered by the front man emcee of the fold, Treach. To solidify the message and bring it home is none other than the woman who cosigned the trio to the world through her Flavor Unit brand, Queen Latifah! Latifah delivers the song’s hook through her singing vocals, which don’t sound bad at all. Even though a 16 bar verse rom the Queen would have been very much appreciated, this collabration does fine. #PRESSPLAY

“God Is Us” available now on Amazon for purchase:
