“I did this for a project I did in Houston a while ago. Here u go,” Travis Scott said in a tweet. And with that, the world received his long-awaited visual for “Way Back,” which is taken from his acclaimed 2016 album Birds In the Trap Sing McKnight.
Fans will recall Scott designed limited edition Houston Rockets apparel for the team’s 2017 NBA playoff run. It appears that his ties with the home team run deep even as we see its star player James Harden face the music after blowing it in a game six loss against the San Antonio Spurs. The video is highlighted in Wednesday (May 31)’s DX Digest along with Snoop Dogg’s animated visual, a single from Curren$y and more.
Travis Scott – “Way Back”
Snoop Dogg F. Redman, Method Man & B-Real – “Mount Kushmore”
Forty-seven hours is all it took for Snoop Dogg and his motley crew of rap brethren — Redman, Method Man, and B-Real — to carve their faces on “Mount Kushmore,” effectively setting off President Cheeto Jesus in the process (yet again). The animated clip is for a standout song from Snoop’s new album Neva Left.
Curren$y – “She Don’t Stop”
It’s a treat whenever Curren$y connects with DJ/producer Don Cannon. The two are currently in Atlanta working on the Jet Life founder’s Smokey Robinson 2: Smokey’s Revenge mixtape. A sampling of their new material arrived Wednesday (May 21). It’s titled “She Don’t Stop.”
Kemba – “Caesar’s Rise”
AD & Sorry Jaynari – “40’s”
Dave – “100M’s”
Talk about an artist with an upside. UK rapper Dave (AKA Santan Dave) saw his star rise in 2016 with the release of his Six Paths EP and Drake’s unexpected remix of “Wanna Know.” Just a week shy of his 19th birthday, the up and comer debuts a video for “100M’s,” an anthemic tune that discusses the struggle and displays his ability to rhyme in the uptempo Grime pocket (just as he can write in the traditional rap vein).
Playboi Carti – “We So Proud of Him”
Playboi Carti has teased snippets of “We So Proud of Him” for quite a while. Thankfully, fans receive the song in full today thanks to A$AP Illz. It features melodic production by BasedTJ and 6Silky.
