Killer Mike dropped these dope visuals for his politically-charged rap song "Reagan". The fully animated video brilliantly uses only the colors red, white, blue and black to portray the real political story since President Reagan took office. Killer Mike doesn't shy away from placing blame on the Democratic party either, saying Clinton and Obama are just like the Bush's by being "another talking head telling lies on teleprompters". Props to Killer Mike for being bold with his lyrical content and to the awesome animators, Daniel Garcia and Harry Teitelman, who brought the w...Read More

Hip-hop artist Lupe Fiasco released part one of the sequel to his "Food & Liquor" album today. The "The Great American Rap Album" is Lupe's look into American culture and in typical Lupe style, its not without controversy. One of his singles, "Bitch Bad" take shots at those who promote using the word "Bitch" and creates a theoretical story of a young boy who hears his mother singing along to a song on the radio referring to herself as a "Bad Bitch". His song "Lamborghini Angels" speaks on the mental corruption of women and catholic priests who m...Read More

Filmed during his Australia Tour this year, Kanye's "Runaway" dancers performed a flashmob on a plane while, yes, in the air! The passengers look a bit confused and one guy finally realizes he should just wait before going back to his seat. Kanye isn't in the video (flying private no doubt) and the description says the video was created as a present for him. Check it out after the jump!

Rock band Anberlin has released "Someone Anyone" on their website to build some buzz for their upcoming album, "Vital", due out in October. I enjoyed their albums "Cities" and "New Surrender" but I haven't heard much from them other than that. Their subtle electronic effects are really what drew me in as well as Stephen Christian's unique voice. It will be interesting to hear what they have to offer in a few months!

St. Louis (now living in Ohio) hip-hop artist DA MAC is looking to his fans to help him produce his next album "Supremacy". The album's content is inspired by watching his mother go through Kidney failure in 2010. He explains:
"While looking after my mom, God laid SUPREMACY on my heart. After watching my mom on a daily basis and witnessing first hand the struggles of dealing with a disease, it made me realize that we can never truly be free until we take all of our struggles, short comings, failures and frustrations and give them to God and let Him reign supreme over our l...Read More

John Mayer had the challenge of promoting a new album without being able to perform most of it due to vocal health. It seems his voice is back but he's still taking it easy. In this live studio video, John performs an acoustic version of "Something Like Olivia", one of my favorites from his new album "Born and Raised".

Lupe Fiasco just released "Lamborghini Angels", his third single from his upcoming album "Food & Liquor 2". If you've heard much of Lupe, you'll know he isn't afraid of controversy. In his latest single, Lupe speaks of Catholic priests who touch little boys and those who live lavishly. Listen after the jump and look for his album on September 25th.
A word from Lupe before listening: "Warning: if you are easily offended or religiously sensitive DO NOT listen to Lamborghini Angels. Contains very disturbing content."

Ellie Goulding has released the first video to promote her sophomore album, "Halcyon". The lead single, "Anything Could Happen", has a laid-back club feel that is destined to be remixed by the best in the field. As much as I enjoy the song, I think I love the visual concept more. Ellie has taken Instagram photos submitted by her fans and placed them together for a simple lyric/slideshow video that is surprisingly effective. Listen and watch after the jump!
Do you think this song will be as popular as her smash-hit, "Lights"?
