Following behind the scenes footage of “Came In,” PeeWee Longway and Migos release the official music video for the standout track off the Streets On Lock 3 mixtape. Keemotion handles the directing duties and captures the new ATL rappers in a backyard with plenty of big face Benjamins.

Boston wordsmith Karlton Marz disappeared for a little while, but now he’s back and equipped with a new appropriately titled track/video in “I’m Back.” Envision Productions captures the promising emcee delivering Mike Tyson-like punch lines over aggressive production by ArJayTHalllest in what looks like to be a rundown warehouse.
“I took a little break from the music to refocus my mind…feeling better than ever now,” Marz admitted in a recent conversation I had with him. With a new burst of energy and focus, look for him to make good on the previously scattered quality releases with a full-length project sometime in the near future.
Third Single From Cousin Stizz Confirms that I Really Need Suffolk County to Drop
“I need some money, I call my plug.” It’s as simple as that.
Boston’s quickly rising Cousin Stizz has hit us with three big singles over the past month from his upcoming Suffolk County project. First came “Life,” the high-spirited “anthem for hard workers who aspire for more,” which ended the young rapper’s silent hiatus (seems that he was busy building an arsenal of hits). Next came the aggressive and murky, Humbeats-produced “Fireman,” which was another hard-hitting heater that very much reinforced this noise making campaign that Stizz is in the midst of leading up to his tape’s release.
Now, today, just when you thought things couldn’t get any better, Cousin Stizz teams up with producer OBeatz for “Shoutout,” a pleasantly addictive track paying homage to “the money from the drugs,” as well as Boston. The combination of Obeatz’s hypnotic instrumentation and Stizzy’s clear enunciation in his delivery is very fitting given the subject matter. In this Goodwin-directed music video, which will most likely act as an introduction to the masses outside the city, we take a ride around Cousin Stizz’s hometown of Dorchester and a few other spots in Boston with him. Shoutout to my city.
With that being said, it looks like Cousin Stizz is three for three right now and I’m very much ready for this tape.
Watch I LOVE MAKONNEN’S ” I Don’t Sell Molly No More”
There’s no doubt about it; I LOVE MAKONNEN is up next. The super creative artist makes good use of his current momentum and releases a new music video for the banging “I Don’t Sell Molly No More,” which is produced by Sonny Digital. Per usual, the ATL/California rapper keeps the video visually stimulating and entertaining. Of course, the doll head makes an appearance. Would it be an MAKONNEN video without it? Good job by director Vincent Lou Films.
In a recent interview with NOISEY, he talks about the song itself and the inspiration behind it:
"That’s actually the truest song I have out right now. It’s like me and my friends, we did a little hustling off of the molly and shit. And then a big ass sort of bust, a drug bust happened out here in Clayton County and the molly, they got like tons of it. The police seized it all and shit. I was like fuck it, I don’t sell molly anymore. It just kind of turned into a song and I was like oh shit, this is real because it’s our real life. They really understood it. Then it turned out to be a really great song."
