The result would probably sound something like Slim Thug’s newest #ThuggaThursday remix of “0 to 100,” featuring DeLorean and Doughbeezy. You may have thought Drake’s original was quotable in its own right, but Delo, Doughbeezy, and Thugga have potent lines of their own to add. There’s no clear “winner” on the track, but Doughbeezy’s country-twanged flow is the perfect closer to the freestyle, equal parts hilarious yet raw. Take a [...]

With Common‘s Nobody’s Smiling album on its way to wrapping up what should be a good first week of sales, Common decided to close out the week by releasing a set of visuals for one of the album’s stand-out cuts, the Big Sean-featured “Diamonds.” “Diamonds” is ultimately about reaping the rewards and flaunting the wealth you’ve acquired after coming up from nothing, so there are a variety of ways Common could have gone about telling the song’s story. But bottles in the club have never been in the Chicago rapper’s thing. Rather, the cool thing about the “Diamonds” music video [...]

Chan-Lo No Comments

Lucky for us, CITW also brought us a few pretty legit jams and more Blue visuals. After shooting footage for “No Care In The World” over the course of a year, Blue dropped [...]
