OnCue Is The New Meme King of Hip-Hop With “No Way” Video
Posted by Grubeats on January 29, 2015
A musicians presence behind a camera can often make or break their music. Brooklyn based MC, OnCue, has always taken pride in crafting unique, original, authentic music videos to complement his everlasting sound. From the stop-motion laced “Way Too Far” to Cuey Nuts and milk showers in “Cereal” to the hazy “New Religion” video featuring Just Blaze & cardboard Dorothy, OnCue always delivers something fresh and innovative.
In support of his debut album, Angry Young Man, Cuey released the official music video for his most recent single, “No Way” just yesterday. In true Cuey form, him and director Hunter Lyon (side-note: follow this kid, he’s super talented with the camera) cook up a video like none of us have ever seen before. Honestly, I’m still trying to my mind around the logistics that went into making this work. Superimposing himself on some of the internet/Reddit’s hottest stories – Bieber getting his paparazzi rage on, Zombie turtle lover kid, the creeper who interrupted a live newscast – & several more, Cue shows us why he’s not gonna stop ’til he gets it. Fortunately for us, someone over at Buzzfeed has already aggregated the memes used in this video into one post so you can relive them all over and over and over and over again. Be sure to show love to Cuey & Hunter for this work of art!
Boston’s ‘Just Juice’ Lands a Logic Feature On “Lavish”
Posted by Grubeats on January 18, 2015
Just Juice, a young up and coming face in Boston’s hip-hop scene dispels his “Lavish” rhymes on us with his newest release. Gaining support from VMG’s own, Logic, as well as Mojo, Juice and co. spit semi-auto bars over this C-Sick certified banger. Juice has been on his grind for several years now and I have a feeling this track will land him the platform he deserves. If you’re feeling this one, feed your ears his free album, For The People.
Timeflies Release Anthem for Bang Bros All-Star, Mia Khalifa
Posted by Grubeats on January 6, 2015
Her native country of Lebanon might hate her as a result of her chosen profession *cough cough*, but Americans sure do love the shit out of this 21-year old adult film actress. Mia Khalifa – the only search burning up more internet bandwidth than “Farrah Abraham’s Duck Lips” is on the brink of a Twitter trend thanks to our friends Timeflies. While Rez and Cal typically drop a new visual for their Timeflies Tuesday episodes, they Wu-Tang (diversify their bonds) and throw together an anthem in honor of Miss Mia recent success – yes, she is now the #1 pornstar on Pornhub *applaud*. The track is already garnering quite a bit of social traction as Mia herself has confessed her love for it. If all goes as planned, maybe the fellas will end up with a porn star’s phone # after all. That certainly never hurt anyone…well, probably unless you’re married.
Timeflies Are In Love With The CoCo, But Not That “CoCo”.
Posted by Grubeats on December 24, 2014
Tis the season for Timeflies to once again throw on those ugly sweaters and rock out to a less than expected viral jam. Unlike years in the past, Timeflies turn up to the trap-rap hit of the fall, “CoCo”. In typical Tuesday fashion, Cal and Rez spin O.T. Genasis’ street anthem into a family friendly Christmas jam. Wait, what? Essentially, if you were to replace every drug reference with a sweet, edible equivalent, you’d get the same result. “BAKIN’ COOKIES, WE BE BAKIN’ COOKIES!” Even the street slugs are going to be boppin’ to this one.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
P.S. Rez – that hat, though. >>>
Timeflies Are Super On This Week’s TFT, “Heroes”.
Posted by Grubeats on December 11, 2014
Once in a while your favorite rapper might make a superhero reference to say, Batman or Spiderman. It’s rare that you’ll hear an artist drop the entire Marvel cast and then some on one track. But then again, Timeflies typically defy the odds and stray away from the norm. Once again Cal and Rez strapped on their capes and went to town on the chart topping Alesso & Tove Lo smash, “Heroes”.
Timeflies Tuesday – Burnin’ It Down
Posted by Grubeats on November 12, 2014
Imagine Jason Aldean had the ability to insert a Sean Kingston hook and then drop a verse mid song – essentially, that’s what Cal and Rez just did with his latest hit, “Burnin’ It Down”. For those of you still resistant to country music, ride this segway and give it a shot.
Holy shit, I can’t believe I just endorsed country music. Past Grubeats would kick me ass right now.
Tickets are still available for Timeflies second show in Boston next week on Thursday, 11/18: GRAB TIX HERE
Timeflies Tuesday – Don’t Stop Believing
Posted by Grubeats on November 6, 2014
It’s not a party unless you sing along to a little Journey. With that being said, sometimes Journey doesn’t tickle your dancing fancy and you just want to turn up. Fortunately for you, Timeflies have done the work for you and amped up Journey’s classic, “Don’t Stop Believin'” and mashed it with some free bars.
Speaking of turning up, have you copped your tickets to see Cal and Rez live on tour this fall?
