The fall season began in Miami right on time when the Game had some cold words for Meek Mill at Story. While the freestyles from their beef have been keeping the internet hot over the past week, other rappers in the 305, like Bobby Biscayne and Deeno, aren't quite finished with summer '16 yet.
This week, Rick Ross reminds us all what we missed at MMG Weekend in his latest video “Same Hoes,” and Kent Jones gets caught up in a scandal in his latest video for his new single, “Alright.”
5. Mr. Mauricio featuring Austin Mahone, Pitbull, and Bobby Biscayne, “Bad Boyz”
Mr. Mauricio brings us another collaborative effort with a few “bad boyz” from Dade County. Not long after dropping off “Paper Plates” with Rick Ross and Yo Gotti, 103.5 the Beat’s (WMIB-FM) resident DJ teamed up with Mr. 305 himself and Pitbull signees Austin Mahone and Bobby Biscayne for a new track. After Mahone provides the radio-friendly chorus, rapper Bobby Biscayne comes through with a fresh set of bars alongside Pitbull. The song comes a couple of weeks after the release of Biscayne’s latest mixtape, Dinner at Prime.
4. Kent Jones, "Alright" (Video)
We told you Kent Jones had another hit on his hands. “Alright” has been making its way across the country, much like his first hit single, “Don’t Mind.” The rising star representing DJ Khaled’s We the Best Music Group kicked off the week with the release of his new mixtape, Too Much Too Soon. Before the mixtape dropped, however, Jones dropped off the official music video for the Earth, Wind & Fire-inspired record. Before you rock out to his new mixtape, watch him get put on blast in his new “Alright” video.
3. Rick Ross, “Same Hoes"
Personally, I’m no fan of sloppy seconds, but it seems like Rozay gives zero fucks when it comes to smashing the same chicks as your favorite rapper. The Carol City chief invites a fleet of women to turn up with the Maybach Music squad during the biggest pool party any of us has ever seen. On a bright, sunny day in Atlanta, Yung Renzel kicked off the Fourth of July festivities during day three of MMG weekend at Maybach Estates. The usual suspects from the Miami-based label, like Meek Mill, Wale, Fat Trel, DJ Sam Sneak, and Omarion, came through to pop bottles and give champagne showers to all the bad vixens in the building courtesy, of course, of Luc Belaire.
2. Robb Bank$ featuring Da$h, “Can’t Feel My Faxe”
Robb Bank$ returns with a new banger to kick off fall. The Broward County spitter links up with New Jersey rapper Da$h to turn up until their faces go numb in “Can’t Feel My Faxe.” Both emcees trade bars back and forth over the gritty production provided by HNIC. Bank$ continues the party and invites Kie Money & Los Hosale to join in on his other new single “Hell Yeah,” produced by Nuez.
1. Deeno, “Jumbo”
Rising MC Deeno brings his independent hustle from the Boogie Down Bronx all the way to South Florida. In his seventh music video, “Jumbo,” the Bronx native spits bars about growing up in the birthplace of hip-hop as he roams the streets of his old stomping grounds. Eventually, the shadows from buildings throughout the concrete jungle morph into palm trees as Deeno migrates to his current home in Miami. Deeno lets loose and puts on for his second home in Kendall, but he remains loyal to the boom-bap-style beats that were birthed in the basements of hip-hop’s forefathers.
