Cyhi The Prynce x Jonathan Hay “Long Damn Time” Video

The official video for the single “Long Damn Time” was just released by Cyhi The Prynce and Jonathan Hay from The Stoned Mountain Playlist.

Filmed by Hay’s creative director Sabrina Hale, the video shows the creative process between Prynce and Hay while working out of the legendary Patchwerk Recording Studios in Atlanta, Georgia.

“Long Damn Time” features 14-year-old Texan singer named Ana, who appeared on Snoop Dogg’s Doggy Style Records release “Letters”, alongside fellow Houston natives, brother and sister, Lil JSean and Aesja on the catchy hook.

Cyhi The Prynce is coming off major success from Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo in which he co-wrote 11 songs from the album, including “Famous”, the song that escalated the feud between Yeezy, Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift. Record producer Jonathan Hay, who’s mostly known for being a celebrity publicist, is a former DubCNN contributor and currently has music he co-produced with Mike Smith all throughout “One Shot”, the hit television show on BET that’s hosted by Sway Calloway and stars DJ Khaled, RZA, DJ Drama, T.I., Tech N9ne and more.

Deuce Maxwell To Direct “LAID” Short Film


DubCNN alumni, Deuce Maxwell, is set to release his directorial debut short film later this year.

Regular and longtime DubCNN readers will remember Deuce from his Plushcat Sessions project in 2008 and more recently “Morningstar Jasmine.”

He’s turned his attention to film and teamed up with New Wine Filmworks to release his short film “LAID,” being coined as a romantic comedy with a slight twist; starring newcomer Brett Miller, in his groundbreaking debut, alongside a hilarious cast.

“LAID” is the story of unrequited love and all of the crazy things that could happen in pursuit of a love affair. The film chronicles one couples’ attempt to make a love connection and everything that goes with that.

Lead actor, Brett “As-Is” Miller stars in this exciting short film, bringing the charismatic personality from his stand up along with his comedic timing front and center for his breakthrough debut performance. ‘LAID’ is a romantic comedy about unrequited love of the worse kind; telling the classic story of boy meets girl, filled with comedy and all of the anxious energy that goes with first dates.

Deuce Maxwell, the film’s director told DubCNN;

“The story of first date jitters and awkwardness is a story that will be told until the end of time, this was just my take on an age-old story”

One of the most interesting components to “LAID” is the films’ visual aesthetic. The nostalgic appearance of the film harks back to the days of Drive-In movies which is something that is as intentional as it is appealing. So stay tuned for more information on the movie and chekc out the trailer below!

The Game “True Colors/It’s On Single + Pre-Order 1992



The Game is thrilled to announce that the pre-order to his forthcoming 1992 album is now available along with his new single.

The track “True Colors/It’s On” – which contains samples from DubCNN’s own OYG redrum781 “Piru Love” and Ice-T “Colors” – will feature on “1992” which is due for release on October 14th via Entertainment One Music/5th Amendment/Blood Money. The Game is currently on the road for his national 1992 Block Wars Tour which kicked off August 31st in Los Angeles with stops in Dallas, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, Portland and many other major cities. Full track listing and upcoming tour dates included below.

For his new hard hitting single “True Colors/It’s On,” Game flips Ice-T’s classic “Colors” to reveal vivid, intimate details of his own upbringing in Compton. Produced by Bongo Da Drum Gawd, The Game further delves into his childhood and life of gang banging during a time of the nation’s high racial tensions.

The Game explains,

“1992 was inspired by what was going on in my life, my city & the world when I was 12 years old coming into my teenage years: The Los Angeles Riots, Michael Jordan & the Dream Team who won Olympic Gold… Crips & bloods were pulling me in both directions & joining one of the gangs was almost a normality for a young African American male growing up in Compton & the surrounding areas of Los Angeles County… Rodney King getting abused by the cops was an unforgettable incident & caused mass hysteria worldwide & the famous OJ Simpson car chase/trial was a huge worldwide televised situation that racially divided a country… So these are some of the many topics based around my childhood touched on in this album. To understand my life you have to understand what I’ve been thru, live where I’ve lived & watch lives of people you loved get erased because of their colors. #1992”

Tinie Tempah – Girls Like ft. Zara Larsson (Official Video)


Rapper/singer Tinie Tempah has scored seven No. 1 singles in his native UK, including his latest, “Girls Like,” featuring singer Zara Larsson. Tempah’s charismatic, autobiographical rhymes weave seamlessly around the track’s rhythmic and insistent electro-bounce before its powerful pop hook pounds into prominence.

The video for “Girls Like” is now streaming on YouTube and can be watch below.

Tempah explains;

“With the video, we really tried to do something completely different to what we’d done before, we headed to the Woodstock suburb in Cape Town – one of the most beautiful parts of Africa – to film this, and the participation of the locals gave it a really different energy and vibe. Africa is part of my heritage and this video shows me and aspects of my world in a way that I have never done before. I’m really inspired by South African house music at present, and this video represents that very authentically with plenty of dancing and loads of really cool moves.”

Tempah will perform at the 92.3 AMP Radio “End of Summer Party,” alongside The Chainsmokers, on September 21st at PlayStation Theater in New York City.
