IAmFlux X Co-Ke|Can't Wait Video Bomb w/ Rate


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!

Ten on Top W/ Five Below| Summer 17' Edition

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".

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.

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.

Video Bomb: What's Love|A.V. w/ Rate


 First and foremost shout out to A.V. for coming hard on a sample and further more channeling this weird Soulja Slim / B.G. vibe. I'll be honest and say I didn't expect this much raw and real rap on this track. The video is Directed by Motion Minds, and while most rappers do visuals where there are home scenes or studio scenes I thought it was appropriate for this video and made it more lovable. The fact that this is a Florida bred rapper sounding like he from New Orleans is a pleasant surprise.  I love finding hidden gems like this. The content is relatable to anyone living the street life or knows loss of someone who lives or lived that lifestyle. A.V. touches on personal accounts of dangerous situations he faced as an adolescent, as well as the all to familiar reality that a lot of young black male's face with incarceration. When I first heard the Tina sample I wasn't sure what to expect given Tina was recounting an abusive relationship in the original. Yet I love the twist the sample presented with a real rap feel. I feel like as powerful as the message was he and his videographer could have come up with a lot more as far as a story line. I did enjoy seeing A.V. in almost a reflective state when he was in the living room and the family portraits were being shown. I really like this song and can't wait to see what A.V. and Wynners Circle have up their sleeves. Connect with A.V. below through his social media accounts and check out my official rate for the video below!
