You’ve probably been hearing “Down In The DM” everywhere at this point and Yo Gotti is definitely trying to capitalize on the fact he’s No. 1 on the Hip Hop/R&B Billboard chart. That’s probably why he’s been going so hard with the visuals lately, hooping one of them catches on. For his next, Yo Gotti releases the Fetty Wap-featured “Tell Me,” which sounds a little like “My Way” to begin with.

The video takes things to the desert where the two ride around in the four-wheelers and race with shortys. One of them even twerks for the camera. You know, your typical rap video.

Fresh off the release of The Night I Went To…, Rockie Fresh heads out to Chinatown for a video to one of his singles off the mixtape. On “Down To Roll,” he rides out with a shorty that’s down to sit shotgun with him as they explore the night. It appears as if she was down, because he locks her down by the end of the clip.

ASAP-12vy

A$AP 12vy and Harry Fraud put some work in for the Empire State on a new track dubbed “Trips.” From 6 hour flights to Cali for kush to international jets to Paris — just to get fresh — the Bronx Bomber brings his Rotten Apple style with him on every flight.

snoop dogg planet earth

If you haven’t seen those videos of Snoop Dogg narrating the BBC nature documentary series Planet Earth, then stop what you’re doing right now and go watch them. I promise, it’s the best thing you’ll do all week. So good, in fact, that somebody actually started a petition to make Snoop narrate the show for real.

We witness Chris Martin bouncing around the city in a rickshaw, while the sights and sounds of the bustling city explode all around him. Queen Bey also appears by periodically in different forms and shapes — don’t blink.

The release comes ahead of the Coldplay and Beyonce’s forthcoming Super Bowl 50 halftime performance on February 7th.
