Most buzzing rappers these days make it after one of their videos goes viral on the blogosphere and is able to show off their unique style and image.  Now the incredibly talented Vince Staples has his own ‘Purple Swag’/‘Yonkers’ with this video for ‘Matlock’.  Listening to Vince’s deadpan and rich flow is paired perfectly with the grainy, black and white style of this video.  The dark vibe of the video is taken even further as a clips of riot footage are projected on to Vince and Michael.  Shyne Coldchai Vol. 1 has already proved Vince to be one of the best rappers making music right now, hopefully this video will help more people realize it.

Astronautica is doing a nice job carving out her own sound in an overcrowded producer scene with an incredibly mellow and laid back collection of tracks.  During our interview, Edrina talked about her musical background with guitar which is demonstrated nicely on this track.  Let me add one more entry into the total collection of blog posts you will read today that tell you to turn the music on, close your eyes and float away.  Let those ‘Lowrider’ vibes take over.

As a producer, Anthony Ellect is proving incapable of doing any wrong.  Even though it is still very early in his career, Anthony Ellect has managed to build up a strong collection of tracks that surpass the average soundclouder.  For his latest jam, Anthony teamed up with UK producer Capeface for the collaboration ‘Note’.  LA and the UK have some of the best scenes and talents for producers so it’s cool to see artists from both areas reaching out to each other.  Unsurprisingly, ‘Note’ does not fail to blow me away.  Although it is impossible to distinguish each individual contribution stylistically with this track, ‘Note’ is a bass-heavy, soulful, glitchy mess that is hard to stop listening to.
