Behind The Scenes at The Block Party for Video Shoot Of “Throw Fits”

We were on the scene for the upcoming video of “Throw Fits” with Juvenile, Yung Miami, G-Eazy, and Super Producer London On Tha Track. The block party scene was located on Frenchmen Street, at the Blue Nile. Many people gathered together to be apart of a culture filled scene in the middle of the street.

We were invited by Freewater, who came together and gathered many people to come out and dance, party, and be apart of dope scene of the video shoot. They also gave a crawfish boil for the everyone came out. We caught London On Tha Track and Juvenile enjoying crawfish.

Everyone was enjoying themselves, especially G-Eazy, as he amps the crowd and embrace the fans and people gathering in their presence. London On Tha Track gathered the people and upcoming local artists from the city for shoots in the video and also embraced them with photos and gracing his presence as well.

The atmosphere was full of beautiful vibes as well as beautiful people coming together. Even though the sun was vibrant, nothing amounted to the huge smiles of the people enjoying themselves. One thing we noticed was the video had an abundant feel of the culture. There was a second line band, ladies twerking, vibrant colors in everyone’s attire, and much more.

“Look at your Rollie, look at my Rollie…” and watch the remarkable collaboration between empowered Hip Hop culture visionary Travi$ Scott with the Philly-based MC Lil Uzi Vert and his Hip Hop Godfather Mr. West.

The “Watсh” follows up straight after the “Butterfly Effect” and brings even more suspense to the Houston-native’s highly-anticipated next LP  – “Astroworld”.

The opening line reveals the background story of the future album, which is named after the legendary Houston theme park closed in 2005. “The last ride ever, that I’m ever gonna take at Astroworld” opens the song about new values and change of perspective.

Each MCs drops a verse over the sick trap-styled beat. The most striking lines are coming from the Yeezy, when he speaks about his opioid addiction that was discussed in the latest TMZ interview.

Kylie Jenner the girlfriend of Travis Scott finishes the song with a lovely but also provoсative line. She praised their new-born baby Stormy: “We got bust down Rollies, bust down Rollies, And I told him I wanted to have a bust down baby” – another change of perspective for Travis.

L.S.T “Lil Shorty Tanja” is an upcoming female rapper residing in the New Orleans area. After listening to her single, she began to grow her own style and presence. The artist may be pretty but don’t let the look fool you. She coming with some bars and dope flows.

With production by Gino, L.S.T delivered a catchy tune for the boss ladies to listen to. The beat leveled well with her voice. She should have incorporated more ad-libs for more personality and enthusiasm. The content of the song overall is dope. She represented quite fine. With the feature from Sev7en, it became a good collaboration. With his lyrics and sound, he bought more of a street vibe that becomes relative.

Overall, L.S.T is on the come up to becoming a household name. As she diligently works on her craft, we have no doubts she will break any barriers.

Young Thug Has A New EP with Nicki Minaj, 21Savage, and Lil Uzi Vert – Listen Now!

Young Thug came along and drops a 3 tracked EP with three dope features on “Hear No Evil”. If you are a fan of Thug’s work, then you anticipate how would this project may sound. He brings Nicki Minaj, Lil Uzi Vert, and 21 Savage into his world. Young Thug always had his own sense of sound where now it becomes duplicated. Thug bought us back to some of his original Flow with the three tracks.

“Anybody” featuring Nicki Minaj has been anticipating for the fan as they both post on social media about the drop. The track has a nice flow and beat. Nicki suites the track well. We enjoy this track more than her latest singles.

“Up” featuring Lil Uzi Vert is produced by Southside. Uzi Vert did his thing on the track as he steps his game up with his wordplay. Thug gives us that upbeat tone in this voice. This high pitched sound becomes familiar from his throwback tracks. Not one of our favorite types but he created his own style with that, and he can keep that! Overall, the track is nice.

Last, he collaborates with 21 Savage on “Now”. They both kills the beat as they boasts about their money, hoes, and cars. They both complement each other’s swag on the track. The production is a catch as well. 21 Savage comes stunting the entire time on the track.

Overall, this EP is what we needed from Thug. You can hear it below:
