Watch Erica Payne – No Guidance If you still aren’t familiar with who Erica Payne is, you must not have heard her show on our online radio station, Raw Wit It Radio. She not only is the co-host of the show (along with Phat Baby), but she is a highly skilled hip hop artist who has dropped original music and remixes that are all heaters! Her latest release is yet another for the books. Taking the beat and title of Drake and Chris Brown’s smash single, No Guidance, Erica puts her PGG (Pretty Girl Gangsta) twist on it. While riding the track effortlessly, she lyrically runs through a list of rappers and DJs from her Virginia (Hampton Roads, to be exact) area code that she hooked up with. Of course, we don’t mean literally! It’s only bars! Though it’s a concept that has been visited by Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj, it is a dope homage to them both and those who got their names dropped in the bars! Visuals shot by Pure Brilliance Entertainment.
Watch Uncle Murda – 2019 Rap Up Happy New Year! It’s that time of the year again! As expected, Brooklyn’s own, Uncle Murda, checks in with his annual “rap up” of the year’s events in only a way that he can deliver it. Always loaded with witty bars with a comical punch, Uncle M checks in at right over 10 minutes with a run down of what went down in 2019.
Hip Hop veteran Fat Joe just released his album, “Family Ties”. Joe has stated that this is his final album. With a catalog of hits under his belt, Joe brings along consistent collaborating producer Dre (of the production duo Cool & Dre) along for his last solo outing. The project’s first single, “Yes”, featured fellow Bronx, NY native Cardi B and generated some waves for the projects release.
His latest visual offering from the album is in the form of the single “Deep”. Under the direction of Irv Gotti (who is still riding high off the success of two critically acclaimed seasons of “Tales” on BET), the video paints a picture to go along with the songs lyrics. Following the storyline of unfaithful love and the emotions involved, the video serves as a short film. With cameos from NORE, Dre, and Irv Gotti, this one is looking like another one to add to Joey Crack’s list of bangers.
