Pop | Get Familiar With Clinton Sparks’s Awesome New “Saturday Night” Single

Posted by on August 22, 2016

Boston’s Clinton Sparks has been on a meteoric rise over the past couple years, making the transition from a notable DJ to vocal artist. Releases with Macklemore, 2-Chainz, T-Pain, Snoop Dogg, Mike Posner and Big Sean have catapulted him into stardom,, solidifying his place amongst the biggest pop heavyweights. Released on Cruzach Music Group, “Saturday Night” is arguably Clinton’s biggest song to date, an anthem with a mean hook and even meaner production. Debuted just moments ago, we’ve had “Saturday Night” on repeat all morning, and you should too.

Get familiar and grab the single on iTunes and Spotify.

Hip-Hop, Videos | Fences — Arrows (Feat. Macklemore) [Music Video]

Posted by on August 11, 2014

It’s been almost two years since Macklemore & Ryan Lewis released The Heist to a small group of core fans, and saw their lives transform alongside the newfound stardom. Last December, in the midst of a small touring break, Macklemore penned these two verses for his good friend and collaborator, Fences—whose latest project, Lesser Oceans, comes out October 14th. It’s the writing we’ve gotten from Macklemore since he became a household name, and it serves as an intimate and introspective view into the challenges he’s faced grappling with fame.

Between hip-hop culture’s reactions to Macklemore’s Grammy victories and Drake’s call-out at the ESPY Awards, Mack’s received quite a bit of disdain for the popularity of “Thrift Shop”. In a recent Reddit AMA, he said that he went through a great period of fear when he thought that was all the world would ever know him for. Here he addresses this by saying, “He makes mistakes, tells stories to his paintbrush/And when the world finally sees his art/He wishes that he never would have made it.”

The video is at-once symbolic of this dilemma, as he’s seen climbing a sky-high diving board filled with his Rolling Stone covers, given the choice to make the plunge or back away. Regardless of your thoughts on the artist, this is a powerful and engaging look into the past two years through Macklemore’s eyes, and the latest narrative about the difficulty adjusting to fame.

Videos | Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. ScHoolboy Q & Hollis – White Walls

Posted by on September 9, 2013


Macklemore, Ryan Lewis, Schoolboy Q, and Hollis release their visuals for “White Walls.” This is probably one of my favorite track off “The Heist,” and though Mack and Ryan didn’t go as in with this video as they did with “Can’t Hold Us,”  they still manage to write and direct a stand out music video.

Hip-Hop, Rap | ScHoolBoy Q – Collard Greens (ft. Kendrick Lamar) [Video]

Posted by on August 7, 2013

I say with ease that ScHoolBoy Q is one of my favorite “new school” rappers, that is, if he’s even considered new school. Already with a full-length album under his belt the Compton native is one of the most watched artists of 2013. His sophomore LP Oxymoron will feature “Collard Greens” and is already one of the most anticipated releases of the year.

Calling in TDE associate, Kendrick Lamar, to drop a verse and Gwen Bunn/THC for the instrumental, Q pulled out all the stops. “Collard Greens” is definitely a “check me out now, h8rz” kind-of song and K.Dot along with ScHoolBoy both make sure to strut their stuff.

The video is eventful to say the least, and even features a few cameos from Macklemore. Check it out, enjoy, and stay on high-alert for Oxymoron coming soon.
