Weekly updates

The music community is a charitable bunch, clearly recognising the need to add heat to the weekend and help beleaguered bodies get through the dredges of Monday (we’re sorry for reminding you). Huge names such as 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne, Fetty Wap, and Tyga showed up with new visual goods over ther past couple of days. Another artist worth a mention is TDE’s latest mysterious signee Lance Skiiiwalker with a new song and video, only a week after the release of his first official solo single attached to the now-leading label. Set your early work weeks alight with this collection of fire releases.

01. Lance Skiiiwalker - 'Could It Be'

The mysterious new addition to the TDE roster Lance Skiiiwalker offers a video single as unique and hard to define as Skiiiwalker’s own sound. Much like his last single ‘Speed’, Lance Skiiiwalker’s ‘Could It Be’ is a genre-bending groovy offering. The video offers up a hypothetical worst-case Tinder date scenario, which has to be seen to be believed. If nothing else, Chicago native Skiiiwalker is swiftly proving himself to be a distinctly intriguing addition to TDE’s stacked lineup, and will certainly have the music world interested to see what his album Introverted Intuition will sound like when it finally drops.

02. DJ Drama - 'Wishing' (ft. Chris Brown, Skeme & Lyquin)

Hip-hop powerhouse DJ Drama (he of the famous Gangsta Grillz series) drops the video to this stacked single taken from his upcoming album Quality Street Music 2, which is the follow-up to DJ Drama’s original Quality Street Music album released in 2012. DJ Drama has long had the ability to bring huge names to anything he touches, and shows it here by adding Chris Brown to the song alongside lesser-known names Skeme and Lyquin. More of an R&B offering, the video finds DJ Drama and his guests standing in a police line-up (a bit on the nose as far as Chris Brown is concerned), as a squad of all-female police officers put the squeeze on them. A pretty genius 50 Cent cameo pops up towards the tail end, making this video one not to miss.

03. Fetty Wap - 'Wake Up'

Fetty Wap drops the visual for his latest hit ‘Wake Up’, seeing Fetty return to his high-school to vibe out to this positive hit, singing about getting Wiz Khalifa high (which is pretty high, let’s be honest) and skipping school. Time will only tell how this track’s popularity will stack up next to past Fetty singles ‘Trap Queen’ and ‘My Way’, as well as where this single will eventually land, but until then Fetty lets loose this laid-back visual for us all to enjoy.

04. 2 Chainz & Lil Wayne - 'Gotta Lotta'

Taken from their collaborative album Collegrove, Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz drop the video for their ‘Scatman’ reimagining, titled ‘Gotta Lotta’. For all of their shortcomings as solo artists, at least contemporarily, 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne have extraordinary chemistry together and really flex their collaborative strength for ‘Gotta Lotta’. Taking all of the video’s spotlight for themselves, it’s really Lil Wayne’s Trump parody cap reading ‘Make America Skate Again’ that steals the show. Oh, and that ‘Scatman’ rework.

05. Belly - 'Money Go' (ft. Travi$ Scott)

Fresh off the release of his latest mixtape Another Day in Paradise, Belly drops the video for one of the tape’s highlight tracks ‘Money Go’, featuring Travi$ Scott. Telling a mobster story that plays out almost like a scene from Scarface in rewind, Belly and Travi$ Scott collaborate to provide a track proving why Belly is a name worth looking out for.

06. Tyga - 'Cash Money'

Thanks to his relationship, and subsequent break-up, with Kylie Jenner, Tyga is a name that has been pretty much everywhere for a hot minute now. So much so for reasons other than music that you’d be forgiven for forgetting that, yes, Tyga occasionally makes music. Airing out his grievances with former music label Cash Money, as well as paying homage to the label’s beginnings, Tyga uses the video for ‘Cash Money’ to quite literally flex his cash and his money. Basically the theme of the tune and accompanying visual is Cash Money, cash, and money. Go figure *kanye shrugs*

07. Jacquees & Birdman - 'Lost At Sea'

PUT SOME RESPEK ON HIS NAME! Yes, that’s right, the most respekful man himself Birdman pops up alongside Jacquees to drop the video for the title track from their collaborative mixtape together called Lost at Sea. One of the only notable cuts from the tape to speak of, Jacquees and Birdman take the opportunity to flex their money and lifestyle while offering very little to do with the idea of actually being lost at sea. Funny, that.

08. Boosie Badazz - 'Wake Up' (ft. Pimp C)

Clearly not happy with Fetty being the only rapper to drop a video for a song titled ‘Wake Up’, Boosie Badazz throws back to his Thug Talk project to drop his the visual for his fierce, woke track featuring a snippet of an interview from the late UGK member Pimp C. Are we feeling this ‘Wake Up’ track more than Fetty Wap’s? Boosie, baby!
