Young Nudy & 21 Savage Link Up For Horror-Themed “Child’s Play” Visuals

After releasing videos for DR. EV4L‘s title track and “Soul Keeper” Young Nudy is back with visuals for “Child’s Play,” which features fellow ATL rapper and cousin, 21 Savage. 

Video producer JMP gave the record, which already features references to Halloween’s Michael Myers and Friday the 13th‘s Jason Voorhees, the full horror movie treatment, turning the Nudy and Savage video into a 70s slasher flick.

Through faint moonlight and rolling fog, the Atlanta-based pair deliver lyrics perfect for the scenery and paint a perfect picture of exactly what they’ll do if anyone crosses them. Stalking in front of old, rusted-out vehicles with a pitbull by his side, Nudy raps his verse and the record’s hook before passing the mic to 21 Savage.

21, as only he could, delivers the hardest verse of the song, the whole time driving a vintage car on big rims while one of his shooters sprays from the back window. 

The whole vibe, similar to the cover of Nudy’s 2017 album Nudy Land, feels like a legitimate horror movie from beginning to end and gives the record an even more ominous feeling than it already had.

SZA Shines In New Video For “The Anonymous Ones”

SZA recently came through with a new song called “The Anonymous Ones,” a track drawn from the soundtrack to the upcoming film Dear Evan Hansen. And while it’s not quite the album single that many fans have been hoping for, it’s still new SZA — and for that, we must be grateful.

Though it’s certainly been a while since the TDE singer impressed the world with her acclaimed Ctrl project, SZA has yet to lose a step. “The Anonymous Ones” certainly shines as a standalone track, but now, it’s gained additional emotional impact by way of an accompanying video. Centering around themes of loneliness, individuality, and isolation, the clip finds SZA singing her heart out only to be ignored by the hustle and bustle of society at large.

It’s certainly worth checking out for SZA fans, as the lengthy clip gives her ample time to let her presence and passion shine. We can only hope that she’ll be coming through with a concrete follow-up on her anticipated album, a project that will most likely spawn even more new videos upon its release. What do you think of this new video for “The Anonymous Ones?”

This is certainly a surprise that Kid Cui’s fans are excited to revel in over the weekend.

As far as visuals are concerned, fans have the recent listening parties etched in their minds, especially the event in Chicago where Kanye performed in front of a replica of his childhood home.

Childish Major Flexes With Bottega Veneta & Custom Air Max 95s On “In My Bag”

We’re back with a new episode of In My Bag! After a month-long hiatus, we’re returning with Childish Major, who unpacked his suitcase to show off some of his essentials.

Fresh off the release of his new project Thank you, God. For it all, Childish Major checked in and gave us an exclusive look into his bag to see what kind of things the celebrated artist brings with him around town. 

He started off with a pack of white t-shirts that he bought from Target, explaining that you can never go wrong with too many white or black tees. Then, he showed a self-explanatory essential: his phone charger. He proceeded to unpack some Q-tips, which he deems a very important item to keep at all times.

“This is an essential, not the cheap kind!” he says about Q-tips. “If you got the plastic in the middle, you’re not really cleaning your ears right. They actually say these is bad for you, but I kind of got a strange addiction to Q-tips. If you know, you know.”

He went on to show off his new merch and more, but one of the coolest things in his bag has to be his shoes. Revealing that he generally travels with a suitcase filled with different footwear options, Childish Major pulled out some clean Bottega Veneta kicks before displaying his custom Nike Air Max 95s.

Celebrate the return of In My Bag by checking out the latest episode above. You can also catch the recent episode of Snack Review with Childish Major below.

Belly Unleashes Visuals For Nav-Assisted “Requiem”

Belly recently delivered her latest album See You Next Wednesday at the end of August, a project that featured guest appearances from The Weeknd, Nav, Nas, Benny The Butcher, Big Sean, Moneybagg Yo, Lil Uzi Vert. And while there are plenty of top-tier bars and hard-hitting bangers to unpack throughout, one of the fan-favorites has proven to be a more laid-back cut.

Now, “Requiem” is the latest track to receive the video treatment, as Belly brings his slow-burning Nav duet to life with a visually striking, hypnotic, and occasionally sensual music video. Though there’s not much going on insofar as plot in this one, the experience of loading up “Requiem” is akin to watching a particularly psychedelic iTunes visualizer. Perhaps the vibe could be enhanced even further by dimming the lights accordingly — do what you gotta do, really.

Overall, “Requiem” is an interesting choice for a single, but one that really represents for the XO family. Should you feel any loyalty to that particular label and its roster, it’s likely you’ll gain all the more enjoyment from “Requiem.” Check it out for yourself, and be sure to support Belly’s new album right here. What do you think about this track, and Belly and Nav’s chemistry in general?
