[ione_embed src=https://www.youtube.com/embed/3Oe7lA35_jc service=youtube width=854 height=480 type=iframe]

Today, with a sizable amount of momentum, rapper ARAb looks to take things up several notches with the new official music video for his single “No Smoke.” Having already premiered via BET Jams, the track features Grammy-nominated producer Velous (Kanye West, J. Cole) and finds the pair contrasting street-edged rhymes with a bouncy hook. Directed by fellow Philadelphia native Benny Boom, the man behind the much-hyped Tupac Shakur biopic, All Eyez On Me, the visual brings out refined aesthetic to Philly’s grittiness. Be on the lookout for AR-Ab’s forthcoming project titled Road To Glory, which is slated for release later this year via OBH Records/Sony Red
Having been a mainstay in the Philadelphia rap scene for some years, AR-Ab is no stranger to getting things via the road less traveled. Serving as a founding member of the OBH collective, Ab was thrust into the mainstream consciousness when he was famously name dropped on Drake’s on seminal “Back To Back.” After a short-lived affiliation Birdman’s Cash Money Records, Ab take matters into his own hands, releasing the first installment of his mixtape series titled “The Protocol. Vol.1.”

Fly Visual: Mack Wilds Pays Homage To Spike Lee’s ‘Do The Right Thing’ In Video For “Love In The 90z”

Mack Wilds Love In The 90z

Mack Wilds ended  his year on an extremely high note appearing alongside Adele in her visual for her mega-hit “Hello” and now he’s making sure his 2016 is just as good. With 2016 is already starting on a high note for the actor/singer with success of the VH1 original movie The Breaks which reeled in 2.6 million viewers, he follows it up with the release of the visual for his latest single “Love In The 90z”.

The song serves as the first single off his upcoming sophomore album to be released under Epic Records. On the infectious tune Mack sings about that old school kind love, the kind you used to feel listening to R&B records from the likes of Jodeci and Keith Sweat. In the Benny Boom directed visual, Mack draws inspiration from Spike Lee’s classic joint Do The Right Thing, filming on the same exact block in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn.

Mack premiered the video through Fader and spoke about the filming visual:

Shooting the ‘Love in the 90z’ video on the same block as the Spike Lee movie was shot was like nostalgia since that’s largely where the concept of the video is inspired from.Working with Benny Boom on this visual, we were able to capture the essence of New York back in the 90z, with a current, fresh feel to it.
