New Overly Conversated Playlist: off the wall

The first edition features some rock-infused, experimental and raging gems from clipping., JPEGMAFIA, Death Grips and Xiu Xiu. Some may call it weird, but we like to call it cultured. Press play on “off the wall” on Spotify, TIDAL and Apple Music.

Watch TRISHES "Language" Video For World Refugee Day

Today is World Refugee Day and we want to share with you “Language,” a video by one of our favorite LA-based singers, TRISHES. The visual shows a day in the life of a refugee family here in America.

Watch as the family plays with their kids and celebrates a birthday all as TRISHES croons about how love transcends language. You might even spot a familiar face!

“Language” is directed by Jessica Lorenzo with director of photography Masaki Imai and colorist Marcos Jay Teno. The song is off TRISHES’ EGO EP.

Happy Birthday to Tupac!

Tupac Amaru Shakur was born on June 16, 1971. He grew up always an artist and blossomed into one of the greatest icons in hip-hop history as a rapper, poet, actor and community activist. Although he was born in Harlem and tried his wings at Baltimore School of Arts, he gave a voice to the West Coast that reverberates through culture decades after his death.

We made a special “Roses for Pac” playlist to celebrate the life and music of Tupac that you can stream now on Spotify, TIDAL and Apple Music.

"On Right Now" Vol.2

We present to you a new installment of our “On Right Now” playlist! This is a collection of songs the squad is listening to and that you should be too in order to become an elevated music enthusiast. There’s been so much good music released lately (IGOR, CrasH Talk) and we always want to highlight our guests. Press play on Spotify, Apple Music or TIDAL.

Watch Thurz' "Long Live" Short Film Co-Starring Nana

There are music videos and then there are cinematic visuals. Thurz chose the latter for his recent single, “Long Live” produced by Jake One. The LA legend co-directed the short film with Paulo Berberan and it turned out to be quite the masterpiece. Nana plays a role in the storyline, so you know we had to support (besides the fact that it’s just a dope video). Check out our interview with him over on the Episodes tab and stay tuned because we just sat down with Thurz too! Episode coming soon…

Watch STIRFRYBOYZ "Sunday" Video

AROY Productions gift us with anutha one. Santino McNaughton and Jared Bishop shot the video for STIRFRYBOYZ’s fun song “Sunday.” The visual has a breezy summer vibe and a little bit of skanlessness. Join the trio on a journey to stay out of trouble!

Honoring Nipsey Hussle 💙🏁

It’s been little more than a week since Nipsey Hussle’s death and we are still processing everything, just like so many of you. We pay tribute to him with a playlist curated by our very own R33kz, who reflected on Naybahood Nip in a piece for Culture Honey. Stream “Slauson’s Finest” on Spotify, Apple Music and TIDAL.

We salute Nipsey Hussle for his extensive music catalog, including the Grammy-nominated Victory Lap and the landmark projects, Crenshaw and Mailbox Money, which he sold through his Proud2Pay platform for $100 and $1,000 respectively. Besides being a game-changing rapper, Nipsey was an entrepreneur who revolutionized what it means to be a businessman. Perhaps what we love most about Nipsey Hussle’s legacy is how he was a genuinely kind person who really cared.

The Marathon Continues.

Celebrating 20 Years Of Eminem's The Slim Shady LP

Eminem is a household name in hip-hop. Some consider him the GOAT. And it all wouldn’t be without his landmark album, The Slim Shady LP, released on February 23, 1999.
