Video: Jay IDK – Metro

In 2015 you can imagine yourself being drawn into a rap song for a lot of reasons. A catchy hook, warbled through a sheen of muddied Autotune. An airy beat with kicks like pillows dropped on a memory foam mattress. […]

Video: Ravyn Lenae – Blossom Dearie

In the video for “Blossom Dearie”, we watch Ravyn Lenae traipse through woodlands, gather leaves in her hands, and then lets them fall to the ground.  As the leaves fall to the ground, they get caught by the camera, and […]
