Big Homie, 2 On + More New Vids [NewTube Thursday]
This NewTube line-up might look like a Throwback Thursday feature, with the “Big Homie” Puff Daddy spillin champagne, West Coast rappers singing about seeing the “Same Hoes” everywhere they go, Soulja Boy “Tell Em” & 50 Cent blowing “Smoke”. So what’s new new? Check out Tinashe & Freeway’s new videos inside.
Puff Daddy feat Rick Ross and French Montana– “Big Homie”
The Bad Boys CEO has returned with a new video, and a name change! Diddy is going back to “Puff Daddy” as he presents his latest single “Big Homie” featuring Rick Ross and French Montana. The New York City ensemble shows Puff rocking a fur coat, Mercedes Benz and promoting his infamous Ciroc liquor. “I can go to any hood’ bet they know me” said Puff. This is probably true. You can also look forward to seeing Snoop Dogg, Bow Wow and a few others make a guest appearance in the cameo.
We told you so! 50 Cent is back with another music video for his single, “Smoke”, but this time around he is collaborating with the Virginia native Trey Songz. The Queens rapper will be dropping a video every week following the release of “Animal Ambition”, which will be in stores on June 3rd. As for our take on the project, “Smoke” reminds us of a remake from the movie, “Kick Ass” minus the male side-kick. The video has a classic comic book theme feel with a futuristic motorcycle ride, the crime fighting woman who saves the day, and the unexpected ending. Let us know how you feel about 50, and the singles that he has released thus far.
Tinashe- “2 On” feat SchoolBoy Q
The half Norwegian and half Zimbabwean singer Tinashe, releases her latest project, “2 On”. The video also includes a cameo with the “Oxymoron” rapper SchoolBoy Q. The compilation depicts everything that we love to see in a new artist. The choreography is vibrant; the energy cranked all the way to the max, and not to mention sex appeal. The single was produced by DJ Mustard, and peaked at number 26 on the UK R&B charts. Tinashe is also an actress, and a former model.
The Game – “Same Hoes” Feat. NipseyHussle& Ty Dolla $ign
This video just goes to show how West Coast music is back in a major way! The Game teamed up with Nipsey Hussle & Ty Dolla $ign on a song that revives the late great Tupac & Nate Dogg’s track “It’s All About You” and the classic phrase “I see the Same Hoes”! The video was directed by Jeff Reyes.
Soulja Boy – “Tell’em”
To all the remaining Soulja Boy fans, the Mississippi rapper recently released a video for his new single entitled, “Tell’em”. Tell’em was not on the “King Soulja 2” mixtape. What are your thoughts on his latest project?
Girl Talk and Freeway- “Tolerated” featuring Waka Flaka Flame
Less than a month after his birthday (March 6th) the unexpected happened, Freeway returned to hip-hop with “Tolerated”. A video directed by Allen Cordell. The single will be on his upcoming EP, “Broken Ankle” and is scheduled to be released on Tuesday April 8th. “Broken Ankle includes a stellar collaboration which includes Producer Girl Talk, and Waka Flaka.
