An artist that I have been acquainted with for about a year and a half now, Jetpack Jones, drops off his newest video. When I first heard his music, I was immediately entranced by his positive vibe and imaginative style of rapping. He spreads a message of positivity and peacefulness that the rap game is seriously lacking. His latest track, Mi Zona, is no different. The electro fused beat, produced by Crayon Stars, provides the perfect platform for Jetpack to show off his flow. Check out the video above and be on the lookout for Afterburners 3: The Brink.

FNT favorite and frequenter Jetpack Jones drops off his longest video to date. Being the fact that it’s quite literally a mini-movie, it spans 7 and a half minutes, but they’re an enjoyable 7 and a half minutes. Jetpack and a few of the homies that will be featuring on Afterburners 3 all star in the movie. The music is on point, my favorite track being the old school sample one that happens after the first encounter with LB, who’s clowning on a statue in King park. Jetpack Jones is the only rapper I know who has been consistently releasing good music for the past two years, and if this is any indication of what his next project will be like, then I can’t wait. Like his facebook page below and check out the video above.

Mike Ballz is one of my favorite up and coming rappers. And after an extremely long hiatus from making music, he’s back, and better than ever. Mike is a breath of fresh air for the rapping game, and I don’t think I’ve ever been disappointed listening to a song of his. That being said, his latest track has not broken that trend. A phenomenal beat, with some quality bars that Mike lays down. Grab the track and be on the lookout for information regarding an album release.

Honestly, I’m not quite sure about the story on this track, or Dyme-A-Duzin for that matter. After a quick research trek consisting of a 20 second visit to his Twitter bio, I learned he is a Warner Bros artist and also a frontman for the very talented Phony Ppl. What I also know is that he is able to have the honor of rapping over a Harry Fraud beat, which in our present age, is a hot commodity. This beat is absolutely incredible, which is what I’ve come to expect from La Musica De Harry Fraud. Download the track and lookout for his mixtape, A Portrait of Donnovan, which is being released on January 16th.

Mr. Right, it’s been a minute, welcome back sir. ”I Luv The Way You Taste”, which is receiving West Coast air time as we speak, marks the first single off Azad’s upcoming project. Despite the suggestively provocative cover art that you may or may not have noticed just yet, Azad insists it’s not as vulgar as one may expect. Haha. All I’ll say is that I wouldn’t suggest sharing this with your pre-teen siblings. With a full plate in 2013 (no pun intended), Azad will surely be turning even more heads than he has in the past couple years. Expect some BIG records from this L.A. sushi connoisseur.

Chance? The Rapper? Yes, ladies and gentleman. Chance, the rapper. He’s here, and he’s here to stay. Chance had arguably one of the biggest years of anyone in the hip-hop game, and he will certainly do big things in 2013. Chance surprised his Twitter followers by announcing that he would be having a show 24 hours from then, and his Twitter followers responded by giving him the opportunity to perform in front of yet another sold out crowd. Only big things coming in 2013 for Mr. Bennett. Check out the video above and be on the look out for Acid Rap dropping sometime in the not so distant future.

I’m not sure what golf course let Marc Gone film this provocative video, or let him anywhere near a putting green with pants like that, but wherever they are; we thank you. I often receive complaints such as: “not real hip-hop,” “this sux” or “Joseph I hate you so much you broke my heart in 8 different places I won’t ever be able to love again.” You guys need to take this video for what it is, it’s entertaining, and damn entertaining at that. Marc recruits some pretty girls, borrows a set of golf clubs, rents a BMW, and gets Aaron Zuckerman to make him a beat. If you aren’t entertained by this, well, keep scrolling. I’m sure we’ve got something to tickle your fancy.
