New Video Drop: "Break Bread" - Hi-Lite Records

 by Nefertiti Jenkins The men from the South Korean hip-hop label, Hi-Lite Records, have collaborated on a new fire track. It's called "Break Bread," and features Reddy, Sway D, Paloalto, YunB, G2, Huckleberry P and Camo Starr. The music video just dropped on Jan. 31, and it starts with Reddy as he gets out of a van, and checks out his reflection, in the vehicle's window. It then continues with his rap on a nice beat, as he heads on to the office, where the rest of the team picks up the flow, with a tour of Hi-Lite Records. The five minute and 35 seconds video, is simple, and features the rappers boasting. The video is good, but if some fans could add one thing to it, that would be to have subtitles in English. You can check out the mv below. "Break Bread," and another new song, "Homecoming," are now available on Apple Music, iTunes Store and Spotify. (UPDATE: 02/02/18 - Subtitles have been added to the video) English, Japa

NEW VIDEO DROP: Horim - "MOVIN" (Feat. Mxxg, Odee, DJ Noah, Kim Oki, J-roc)

by Nefertiti Jenkins Back in the mid 90s and early 2000s, everyone was grooving to neo-soul artist D'Angelo. His smooth R&B, funk, and jazz fusion sounds and sex appeal had ladies swooning to his beat. Today there is an artist in South Korea who vibes like D'Angelo. His name is Horim, and he's just dropped new music. The track is called "Movin." The mv features rappers Mxxg and Odee, as well as DJ Noah, saxophonist Kim Oki, and dancer J-Roc. The visual was uploaded on YouTube on January 24. When you listen to it, you immediately connect, especially if you like that old school sound. It's jazzy and Horim's raspy voice at the beginning, takes you back in time. But rap beats from featured artists gives this tune a modern spin (with turntables and a saxophone). Check out the video below. Also, INLet'sGo! got to see Horim perform live on stage, back in 2017, during the NBA Buzzer Beat Festival, check out that video below as well.

Jay Park Gives Fans The Concert Experience We All Want

Most fans already know this, but Jay Park is one of the hardest working men in show business. Fans saw an example of his work ethic on January 20 & 21, during his two day 'All of Me,' solo concerts in South Korea. Saturday's vibe, "Everything You Wanted," was R&B,  and Sunday's "Worldwide," was for the rap and hip-hop crowd. A lot of his fans have uploaded clips on social media, showing Jay Park dancing and singing hard. The concert on the first day, opened with sexy moves for the song "Replay," and also included rare performances of older songs like "Star," and "So Good," and newer songs like "Forget About Tomorrow." On the second day, there was "Hulk Hogan," and a Show Me The Money 6 favorite, "Most Hated," with Dok2 on stage. The Quiett also joined Park for "WorldWide." They were just two of the artists to share in the spotlight for the two day event. Hours afte

New Video Drop: French Montana - "Famous"

Hip-Hop artist French Montana is taking fans once again back to Africa. In 2017, we got to experience the rhythm of Uganda, in his video "Unforgettable," (ft. Swae Lee).  Now for 2018, in a new video called "Famous," Montana takes us to Morocco, where he was born and raised (he moved to the U.S. when he was a teen). The visual was uploaded on January 18.  With it, we see his love for the people, the land, and the culture, including his favorite childhood sport of soccer. Montana also visits his grandmother's grave, and towards the end of the video, he takes us to an outdoor celebration, with traditional dancers and clothing. The mv is beautiful and compelling. The track is from the album "Jungle Rules," which is out now. This video means a lot to me!!

Song of The Day: Sway D - "G-Shock"

Sometimes the little things in life, can make everything right in the world, especially if it's a gift from a parent. Sway D from Hi-Lite records, recently dropped his latest single "G-Shock".  At first glance, it seems to be a promotion for a South Korean jewelry/watch company.  But after viewing the video for the track on YouTube, you discover the song, is a whole lot more, and the video offers a feeling of nostalgia, as Sway D gives us a song of reflection from his car. The opening scenes show us a cute little boy walking with his mother, with a new G-Shock watch in a box. The little boy seems so happy and cherishes the gift long after he gets home. And it seems with the watch, the child is invincible and ready to conquer the world. Later we see Sway D rapping about how blessed his life is. You'll have to watch the video to see what happens next. The song has a nice beat and flow in Korean, and leaves you feeling good after watching the visual (even if it wa
