Video: Bizzy Crook – No Hard Feelings

Written by Nigel D. / 12.17.14

Bizzy Crook has a message in No Hard Feelings as he dropped his No Hard Feelings mixtape in August, a 22-track story that flows in and out over beats from Viruss, Boi-1da and more. With a f**k your enemies, protect uour energy mentality, he sticks to his guns & lets the music speak. In September the Miami nativedropped the first video, “Oath,” laying the groundwork for the rest of the project, and today he releases the followup video for the two-part title track “No Hard Feelings.” The video was directed by JR Saint.

J. Cole Has His Best First Week Of Album Sales Ever With “Forest Hills Drive”

Written by Nigel D. / 12.17.14

2014 Forest Hills Drive sold 354,000 copies in it first week, and it also debuts at No. 1 on the Top Album Sales chart. The sum is the fifth-largest sales week for an album in 2014, and the biggest for a hip-hop set in over a year. The last hip-hop album to score a bigger sales week than 2014 Forest Hills Drive’s opener was Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2, when it launched at No. 1 with 792,000 in the week ending Nov. 10, 2013.

J. Cole follows solid first week sales for “Cole World: The Sideline Story(218k)” & “Born Sinner(297k)” with selling 375,000 copies of “Forest Hills Drive.” Keep in mind he didn’t have any radio singles nor a huge marketing campaign for the album. What does his success say to the labels and other rappers out there?

Written by Nigel D. / 12.17.14

From the makers of Noisey Chiraq, a new 10-part series documenting unprecedented access into the Atlanta rap scene. Hosted by Vice / HBO / Noisey’s Thomas Morton and directed by Andy Capper, the series stars artists like 2 Chainz, Gucci Mane, Migos, Rich Homie Quan, Young Thug, Jeezy, upcoming stars like the Grammy-nominated iLoveMakonnen, and also spends time with the new wave of super-producers like Mike Will Made-It (Miley Cyrus), Metro Boomin, and 808 Mafia.

The series goes behind the songs and into the trap houses, neighborhoods, problems, and solutions that have inspired the wheelhouse behind one of America’s most vibrant and influential music scenes. Also featuring appearances by the Atlanta Police Department, gang members, the ATL Twins and Curtis Snow (Snow On Da Bluff), we attempt to illustrate the complex and vibrant rap scene and what that culture means to the city.

Video: Kendrick Lamar Debuts A New Song On The Colbert Show

Written by Nigel D. / 12.17.14

Kendrick Lamar was a guest on The Colbert Show and debuted a new song. Clearly Kendrick Lamar isn’t trying to be the average rapper and isn’t scared to try out different sounds in his music. I look forward to his next album in 2015.
