New Video Drop: Jeremy Quest - "Work" and "Episode 2"

In less than a week, khip-hop rapper Jeremy Quest from New Wave Records (B-Free's label), has dropped two new videos on YouTube. The latest, uploaded on Feb. 28, is called "Work," and was directed by Sui Film / Team YAYA. The retro visual features the young artist bragging about his experience in the rap game ("you can not forget") and shows off his young model looks. The second video Jeremy Quest dropped, "Episode 2, " (with Charity) was released on Feb. 23, and could've been shot in China. In the description under the video, it says Shanghai Oct. 2017. It seems to pick up his adventures from his previous video called "Halloween". The lyrics are a little deeper than "Work," beginning with "lately I felt so lost." But some of the imagery displays bits of humor. Check out both videos below, from the New Wave Records YouTube Channel...

"All The Stars" from Kendrick Lamar and SZA - A Must Watch

It's just days before the release of the soundtrack for the movie Black Panther, and Kendrick Lamar has dropped the music video for his single with SZA from it, called "All the Stars."  Lamar curated the soundtrack, and before you buy it, (it's out on Friday, Feb. 9), or before you see the film, (which hits theaters on Feb. 16), you have to see the visuals for "All the Stars" on YouTube. It's beautiful and starts off with Lamar, in a boat floating through a sea of people, and then features SZA dancing through a galaxy of stars that held the shape of Africa. We see beautiful children, men in suits, dancing and women with traditional African attire. The entire visual is stunning and powerful, and at one point we actually see Lamar walking through a forest surrounded by black panthers. The music video was directed by Dave Meyers & the little homies. You can check it out below.
