Chrissy’s Picks of the Week 10/2 New Month, Who Dis?

HAPPY OCTOBER!

Its officially October and I couldn’t be more excited for this Halloween season. Also, its Monday so you know what that means! I’m back to bring you some dope music and visuals that I’ve discovered over the past week so lets get into it!

Mack Derico – H.N.I.C.

Don’t ask me what that stands for because I don’t know. What I do know, however , is that rappers seem to love remixing Missy Elliot songs as of lately and the results have been pretty great thus far (Shout out to Ski Mask the Slump God). This week Mack Derico released his visual for H.N.I.C. The video was shot by TreP (who has been going crazy with the visuals lately) in a corner store in true 757 fashion. Check it out, yall.

 

Rari – Rari Effect (Butterfly Effect Freestyle)

If you haven’t heard of Rari, now would be a great time to get hip. He’s an artist from the DefCorp label who just might be the best lyricist in Virginia right now. The visual for his track Rari Effect (a cover of Travis Scotts Butterfly Effect) is directed by Tommy Trill, another DefCorp member and provides viewers with a simple visual with a trippy aesthetic. Rari goes crazy on this track and proves himself to be quite a lyricist and Im sure after seeing this video, you too will agree.

 

DJ Sweendawg – Pregame Sh*tmix

When it comes to music one thing I’m really big on is DJ mixes because thats how I find new music to review. The only thing about DJ mixes is that a lot of them are hit or miss but one DJ that always gets it right is DJ Sweendawg. Whenever he uploads a mix I know its going to be straight FIRE just like this new mix he recently uploaded. The mix includes some of my favorite local artists (Treez Lowkey) as well as some of my favorite mainstream artists (Lil Yachty). Its a pregame mix so its perfect to listen to before a night out or if you just want to get lit in the crib.

 

 

Thats all I have for yall for this week! Make sure you guys are checking out all the other content on the website as well as my new uploads on YouTube from this past week (I uploaded four videos this past week yall!)

Love yall!

Chrissys Picks Of The Week 9/25

Hey y’all!

If you are subscribed to my YouTube channel then you may know this already but this week I am introducing a new facet to my website called “Chrissys Pics of the Week”.  With these posts I will show you all my favorite new music, visuals and events that I find during the week and want to share with you all. I know I post about local artists a lot but these posts will feature some mainstream artists as well. Today’s article is the first installment of this series of posts so I hope you all enjoy!

Lil Aaron – Warped Tour

I came across this video on Twitter and instantly fell in love with it. You all know I have an infatuation with Vans so I was attracted to the fact that he incorporated Warped Tour into the video. Also, the track samples Paramores “Misery Business” (another one of my favorite songs). If your’e one of those people who need super deep lyrics to enjoy a song then you won’t like this track but I found the song pretty dope and extremely catchy.

 

Conscious Kane – Good Good

If you like lyrical rappers, Kane is someone you want to pay close attention to. Normally he’s spitting knowledge and serving severe lyricism on his tracks but on this track he keeps it pretty chill and just talks about having a shorty he can kick it with. The track also features Huey Supreme and Nicole Black.

 

Xxxtentacion – Look At Me

This video has sparked so much controversy in the last couple days but fore you say anything, just watch the video. The video was directed by X himself and has a pretty thought provoking message behind it.

 

Doe$ki – Love My Choppa

Doe$ki dropped a visual to his “Love My Choppa” freestyle which I found pretty interesting. With all the hair shaking, gun toting and jumping around that we love Doe$ki for, the visual presents a hood aesthetic that is quite satisfying.
