Sounds: Hip-Hop Hype

Planet Asia just dropped a new video for the song Golden State off his upcoming album Black Belt Theatre.

From Nature Sounds:

“With the release date for his new album Black Belt Theatre rapidly approaching, West Coast hip hop luminary Planet Asia now presents the official music video for his single “Golden State”. A celebratory cut about Asia’s California home base, “Golden State” is a perfect introduction to the blaxploitation-inspired Black Belt Theatre, in stores everywhere on February 28th through Wandering Worx / Daddy Real / Greeenstreets. Featuring a soulful, cinematic backdrop and appearances from the likes of Raekwon, Talib Kweli, Paul Wall, Ras Kass, Camp Lo, Strong Arm Steady, Fashawn, Willie The Kid, Torae, and Rasco, Black Belt Theatre promises to be one of the most important editions to Planet Asia’s already impressive catalog.”


From Nature Sounds:

“L.A. hip-hop enigma Blu came out the shadows last year, giving fans his first newly-recorded album in two years, mysteriously titled Jesus. Now, he’s unveiling a new music video for the title track, produced by beat god Madlib. Video shot by AaronIsNotCool in sunny southern California, with animation from Ruff Mercy. Jesus is now in stores everywhere, including iTunes, Amazon, UGHH, and more.”
