(Video) A$AP Mob – Money Man

by @Djordje

A$AP Rocky announced to the world via tweet (and crying Benedict Cumberbatch GIF) last weekend that “Cozy Tapes Vol. 1” was finished.

“Cozy Tapes” has been a labor of love and devotion for Rocky. The project, which features multiple A$AP Mob members, was initiated by close friend A$AP Yams, who died suddenly in early 2015. While there’s no release date yet for “Cozy Tapes,” we’re one step closer today with the release of the film “Money Man,” which includes two tracks from the album.

The intense 12-minute short film was directed by AWGE, A$AP Rocky’s creative collective, and tells the tragic story of Rina, a character trapped in a world of crime and misfortune. It is soundtracked by the song “Money Man” featuring A$AP Nast and a second song featuring Skepta. Both songs were recorded at Red Bull Studios London.

The film — shot over three days in northwest London — also features A$AP Nast and Skepta. Also making an appearance is Said Taghmaoui, the screenwriter and actor, who starred in the groundbreaking 1995 French film “La Haine,” upon which the “Money Man” film takes its inspiration, and the acclaimed David O. Russell movie “Three Kings.”

Last month, A$AP Rocky dropped the track “Crazy Brazy” — featuring A$AP Rocky, the Atlanta rapper Key! and A$AP Twelvvy — which is also on “Cozy Tapes.” In an interview with MTV, Rocky called the album “an introduction to a new cozy way. It’s really rap-punk meets alternative underground.”

Premiere via Red Bull UK.

(Video) Skepta – Ladies Hit Squad ft. D Double E & A$AP Nast

by @Djordje

Just in time for V-Day, Skepta has blessed us with a video for his self-produced new song “Ladies Hit Squad,” that debuted on the OVO Sound Radio show last night. The sultry clip features Skep and co-stars Harlem’s A$AP Nast and London MC D Double E chilling in a purple-lit room with a pool and a crew of beautiful women they’re intent on impressing.

Nast sings the hook with a melodic nod to “Hotline Bling” while D Double E drops his best come-ons in the opening verse, but it’s theFADER cover star who seals the deal with this very U.K. couplet: We don’t really need Netflix, I’ll give you something to watch/ And after we’re done, build a spliff and cotch.

“The way this song came together was too organic,” Skepta told The FADER over email today. “We’ve been listening to it in the ends, in the studio, in Ubers every day for months now so I’m happy it’s finally out for the world to hear.”

According to Skepta’s team, 2016 will see the release of the London grime star’s new album, Konnichiwa. Knew this was gonna be a good year.

Premiere via FADER.
