This Week in Miami Hip-Hop: Pitbull, Bizzy Crook, Prospectt, and More

As summer '16 draws closer to its unfortunate demise, Dade County’s prominent emcees are taking advantage of the season’s final moments. Trina and Wifisfuneral took to the streets of Miami to shoot their new videos while Pitbull, Flo Rida and LunchMoney Lewis whipped expensive racecars from the Port of Miami all the way to Wynwood in their latest flick.

Check out what’s popping in Miami’s hip-hop scene below.
5. Trina, "Overnight" (Video).

After cruising on a yacht in her last freestyle, Trina is back with a more serious and sentimental visual for her recent single “Overnight.” The black and white music video sets the scene for the dark themes that ooze from her melodic reflection on life and her career thus far. The single is set to appear on Trina’s sixth studio album coming late this year.

4, Prospectt, Are We Finished or Are We Done (Mixtape).

Rapper and producer Prospectt demands that we put some respeck on his name after releasing his newest collection of diverse tracks. For his latest project, Are We Finished or Are We Done, the Brooklyn-born artist unleashed five fresh songs, including his collaborative effort with Hialeah’s own Eskeerdo called “The One.” The mixtape comes several months after his Fortune Teller project, which features appearances from Zoey Dollaz, Ace Hood, Reazy Renegade, and Smash David.

3. Bizzy Crook featuring Ye Ali, "Motives."

Miramar native Bizzy Crook is gearing up to release his next project, A Part of Everything, at the end of September. In an effort to strike up more hype for the project, the Tidal Discovery artist recently released his latest single “Motives” featuring West Coast crooner Ye Ali. Both emcees slow it down on the somber, bass-filled track produced by Daniel Worthy. While Ye Ali’s long-awaited LP, Traphouse Jodeci, is finally available now, stay tuned for Bizzy Crook’s album dropping September 28.

2. Wifisfuneral featuring Danny Towers, “Just a Year Ago” (Video).

Traveling the country for his Black Heart Revenge tour hasn't stopped Wifisfuneral from releasing more new material. The West Palm Beach native takes his talents to Miami Beach in his brand new video for “Just a Year Ago.” In his first visual without his trademark long curls, Wifi and his boy Danny Towers trek the streets and post up by the water in the video directed by Nassacre.

1. Pitbull, Flo Rida, and LunchMoney Lewis, “Greenlight” (Video).

Dade County veterans Pitbull, Flo Rida, and LunchMoney Lewis have a need for speed (and butts) in their new video for “Greenlight.” Mr. 305 and the “My House” rapper take off from the Port of Miami and burn rubber as they speed between South Beach and downtown Miami. Pitbull’s latest single “Greenlight” is set to appear on his forthcoming album, Climate Change, which drops October 9. Along with Flo and LunchMoney, the album will also feature Jennifer Lopez, Jason Derulo, and Robin Thicke.
