This cypher video is something I found insanely dope and what topped it off was it is homegrown and I definitely wanted to share with the world some dope Emcee's straight out of the 727. I live for conscious artist and people that evoke thought. I think they all had their own way of opening peoples third eye. I thought this would be perfect for a #TBT given it was done 5 years ago. Each artist has a unique sound and the lyrical content is there. From my own observation

Here are the best and worst videos that I checked out this week and in the past few weeks. Check them out do you guys agree or disagree?

So this specific video bomb is near and dear to me because my camp is responsible for this production, Special thanks to 12/12 Production for their awesome videography skills. This video features WeBandz artist Cea$ar Christian and fellow St.Petersburg rapper Paublo Patrick. When the two collabed on this track I don't think any of us fathomed exactly what this video was going to convey all we knew was that we needed it to be " Poppin ". The beat is produced by our in house lead producer Tango who is also featured in the video along side Cea$ar and Paublo. With the larger than life lyrics from Cea$ar Christian, Paublo Patrick adds his real life lyrics to create a perfect combination. While this is my camp I felt the need to give an unbiased critique of something I had a role into bringing to fruition. While overall I am happy with the quality of the finished product, I felt that the girl chosen as the video girl should have been better selected. She lacked the visual presence we needed and she lacked the dance moves. Ironically as a collective we shared a few laughs about her moves and even named them. I thought Cea$ar Christian has a presence about him that assist his rapping style. His style is like none other and his usual swag went well with the concept. Paublo Patrick's delivery was a direct reflection of him as an artist, although some people who had the opportunity to check out the visuals prior to the release did not like his energy it is my knowledge of his artistry that allows me to appreciate his calm never over the top demeanor. Cea$ar Christian took a more materialistic approach to "Poppin" while Paublo touched on real life scenarios in his usual prophet delivery manner. The visuals showcased a closed set scene, scenes from MLK 2017, and an outdoor scene featuring a dope Chevy with switches. For this to be our first video it is perfect, but it is a pivotal example for future visuals from Cheddar Gang. I am proud to be apart of a great concept and I pray we continue to help artist evolve as we embark on our musical journey as a whole. Please check out the visuals for "Poppin" below and be sure to connect with the artist as well. My full rate is below and any and all criticism is appreciated and wanted. The song will be available on Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal and all other outlets on 2/1.
Cea$ar Christian:"Gucci all on my waist, look of success in my face, Tango gone go heavy Diddy, I'm gone go heavy Mase, get some matching rollies, probably throw them in your face, love an educated ratchet that will put you in your place. "
Paublo Patrick: "Was paul paul back then, now I'm Paublo the King ,that 3921 got these n*ggas convening, with ten bands on the body, got these bitches on E, defiant she getting nasty yea she cuffin her teeth."

Watching the whole video it gave me the Usher and R Kelly "Same Girl" vibe from the jump. The production makes this not only a mood setter but it invites a very sexy feel to the song with the visuals. In "Can't Wait" Flux teams up with fellow St. Pete artist, rapper Co-Ke for an almost predictable meet up among friends when they realize they've been seeing the same woman. The story line is a plus and something I definitely look for when critiquing videos. The video was sexy and seductive a bit predictable with the story line but nevertheless I was entertained and I couldn't help but get into the song. I liked the overall feel of the video as well as the perspectives from a singer and rapper point of view. This song definitely fits in my niche of songs that I like that feature a male singer and male rapper on the song. I have given the video a thorough rating below and please don't forget to connect with the artist below!
Favorite Line(s): "You gone love when a n*gga in it, back girl gone head and bend it, I can do whatever you like, I can get you right...Whoo Got damn act right, come and get this new pipe. "

It is the 9th month of the year and Cardi B has literally made a believer out of all of us. She has the #2 song in the country and even got Kodak Black on the remix for her hit "Bodak Yellow". While that is an awesome accomplishment for Cardi, we are here for my Summer 17' playlist. I am aware that a few of you have been patiently waiting for an update and I do apologize for the wait and hiatus. I have a bunch of awesome post lined up for you guys that I hope will bring back nostalgic memories as well as invoke thought and spark conversation. I wanted to come back with my summer playlist because unlike summers back when I was an adolescence I do not get to parlay during the summer or even go out for that manner these days. So my music intake is limited to late night binges on Youtube and my amped up Spotify list. I hope you guys enjoy this entry. And check out the dope visuals that I picked for summer 17' I think a few of you will agree that my picks are spot on.
