QuESt does it again with a really dope visual for his track ONE WAY, from his Fear Not Failure mixtape. The video was filmed by SNKNY. The video kept a dark feel to it, with the thunder storms and cloudy skies. This song is sick, produced by Mt Eden. The way the video ends just gives me goosebumps. The concept of ONE WAY is a state of mind, if you are determined to go after a goal or dream. No one can stop you when you are on this path. Kudos to QuESt!

Check out music video from Decent, a hip-hop duo from New Haven, CT. Titled BE THERE The song samples Kings of Leon On Call. That definitely gave a boost to the track. Directed by Maxwell Reichert. It’s a crazy part where they’re eating dinner and the main course is like possessed heads. The rest of Decent’s music videos are all in Black and White.
Check out the second visual off of Mercy album The Prestige 2, Lord Have Mercy. This track should sound familiar since it was featured on NETWERK VOL SIIXX.

GMAIL is the first single off of Zero Star’s 2nd LP Maybe I’m Joking, Maybe I’m Not. I think this video is super dope! The visuals change from video to images put all over like a collage, nice. Love the effects. Zero Star’s flow fits well with this beat that Chozin produced. Andy Robinson directed GMAIL. My favorite verse is definitely the second one. It’s very descriptive and leaves you visualizing it. It last last hook Zero says “had to find my way to a Princess like Mario“. Love catching video game references.

The collaboration between Web Three and Kaaren Styles wouldn’t be likely. Hence, their genres were different but they only had one thing in common besides music. They were both friends with Telle Crooks (Troy Longhurst). BACK TO HOLLYWOOD is a tribute towards their good friend, after Telle Crooks lost his life in a shooting in North Miami Beach. What came out of this event was a song honoring a business partner and a long time friend. Web Three recalls occurrences he had with Troy. Kaaren really adds the final touch to the track to make it complete! On the chorus & implementing melodies throughout the song. BACK TO HOLLYWOOD was produced by The Riftah. The music video was filmed by Insane Sounds.
“Web Three, Death Proof Records and Kaaren Styles want to spread the message of love over all else. Life can be discouraging at times but we have the ability to turn the pain into positivity.”
