Aaron Cohen’s latest single “The One” gained major momentum, picking up over 7,000 plays in two days on Soundcloud, while trending on Audiomack. After the positive response from fans and critics alike, Cohen teamed up with HiphopDX to shoot visuals for the track.

The track is produced by frequent collaborator and fellow ICK member Kemal. The video was shot in Los Angeles by director Peter Sobat. Be on the lookout for Aaron Cohen’s upcoming EP entitled “Off The Ground” expected in March/April.

Aaron Cohen – “The One” (Video)


Now I was first introduced to San Francisco native & giant Larry June a few months after his May ’15 Bad Dreams EP by my good friend and his fellow OGG affiliate Tru Heru, and instantly realized the Bay Area had yet another gem out it’s rich soil ready to shine. Featuring one of his most notable records to date with “Glock .40”, and supportive hits like “Cooking” and “Mad Now” featuring ATL’s Lord of Rage, OG Maco, and Bay brethren IAMSU, Larry June’s distinct ad-libs and dynamic energy makes him one to watch closely on the coast. Endorsing everything from hustling to healthy eating habits, June simplifies his complex character traits on the track & allows his fan base to embrace him in manner not seen amongst other rappers these days. Charismatic, confident and constantly after new means to express his creativity/influence, there is literally no limit to what the politely boastful & brash businessman can and can’t do. The fifteen track EP is but the midpoint to his still young and growing career having released his Route 80 EP (June ’14) and his Cali Grown Pt.2 (July ’13) prior to this solidifying & successful body of work. Music below, video above.

I got more work from the man formally known as Young June on the way, so eat this while I cook up the next dish.


Showing us that still waters run deep in The Beach, the LBC’s Vince Staples drops his latest visual off his 2015 double disc release Summertime ’06 for “Lift Me Up”, as he seamlessly drowns in deep thought while suffocated by his surrounding struggling society. Aware rather than conscious, Staples’s raps with no filter, expressing himself explicitly while touching taboo topics head on with his trademark blend of honesty and humor. Aware and wide awake to his media magnified blackness & the unfortunate daily discrimination that comes with it, Vince tackles certain discussions related to that as opposed to running from them, dealing openly with the realities that plague his life on & off the mic. Recognized for his refined work, the North Long Beach neighborhood narrator continues to provide quality over quantity, which in turn only solidifies the now & future strength of his catalog and content. Tune in.


Unleashing the second record off their soon to be released & highly anticipated collaborative effort, Statik KXNG, Statik Selektah and Slaughterhouse’s beat butcher Crooked I let go “February 12 (Part 1)” as a follow up to its first single “Dead Or In Jail”. Titling their newest joint after their project’s release date, Crooked I aerial drops a bar bombardment over the Statik tailored track, showing his truly cut from a different cloth, designing multi-layered rhymes known to go over heads like fitted caps of the average listener(s). A freestyling phenom, lyrical living legend and unchallenged master of metaphors & similes (even amongst his peers), the highly productive veteran  continues to make his mark in the game now far from its original state & essence. Teaming with Statik Selektah to solidify the project’s sound, this titanic tandem is set to sail from coast to coast, uniting two cities historically paired for their NBA rivalry, and collectively reminding the rest of the rap game that substance is just as vital as style, and unfortunately for competition, they have both.


Premiering his official video for “Man Of The Year” via Complex Magazine recently, Chuuwee, the walkin’ & talkin’ Sacramento landmark MC remains dedicated and diligent as ever, picking a properly titled record to define him as both a man and artist. Although the video is simple in its construction, it allows his viewers/listeners to solely focus on his message, and gain a true appreciation for his always honest, authentic and bold artistry. Giving fans access into his everyday life & struggles has made him a uniquely heralded rapper, garnishing a fan base as loyal as Manchester United’s football club, while putting on for all the tried & true individuals aiding his cause. Thus, continuing to build off of the success of his last year’s The South Sac Mack  album with European outlet Below Systems Records, and set to follow it up with another solo endeavor entitled Dystopia later this year, expect Chuuwee’s movement and momentum to catapult him to deservingly new heights as the year progresses (not to mention AMB2 with Trizz). As he extends his already lengthy but still very young career, he continues to build up his foundation brick by brick, solidifying his grind, delivering as promised & proving that his truly of man of his word. Watch.
