chip X ghetts [gets like that]

how mad were the visuals for this song?! had me feeling like i was watching this generations version of the mel b and missy elliott video [i want you back],,,.wild!

its really nice to hear chip spit bars with someone who’s his equal, lyrically.

more collabs from the both please.

its clear that chip has an artistic side, so it would be good to see him do something like travis scott and maybe create something visual for his fans. i’m not saying it has to be on the same scale as travis, but i feel like we’re in an era where artists aren’t just focusing on creating music, but they’re really stepping it up and taking it back to creating art for the culture through strong visuals/movies….

definitely watch the video below. you can listen to the track on the CULTURECREEPR soundcloud page and yessss the song is available on tidal. enjoy



//. comeback [NOUN]

I finally had a chance to watch MISSY ELLIOTT’S new video ‘I’m Better’ (currently with 8.1M views in just over a week) and I’ve read so many comments calling this a comeback, which from my perspective I wouldn’t call it that, as MISSY will always be a relevant artist. But in terms of the video and song, I was a little disappointed.

Firstly, let me address a comment that I read in Fader which stated that MISSY was “going in with a vintage-Migos triplet flow and harmonizing”. *sigh

MISSY has been in the game for so long that the above comparison/description was not necessary. Now don’t get me wrong Migos are cool and I like them but that comment just didn’t feel quite right to me. We are talking about MISSY ELLIOTT here! The woman who gave us SUPA DUPA FLY, BEEP ME 911, THE RAIN, HOT BOYZ, ALL N MY GRILL, TWEET, NICOLE WRAY, AALIYAH, I could go on but you catch my drift.

Now the video was artistic and I loved the part where it switched to everyone dancing underwater but the video itself, wasn’t as sharp or as smooth as we’ve previously seen with MISSY videos.

Now the song….who is LAMB? My cousin said to me that if you didn’t know his name and never saw the video you would have thought it was Timbaland and to be fair she was right. Now you guys will think I’m crazy but I think Meek Mill would have been the perfect choice for this song because he has so much energy and this song needed energy and hype, which all comes with Meek. So MISSY, please collaborate with Meek because I think it would crazy and I wanna see him win so bad in 2017.

See the ‘I’m Better ft. LAMB video below and as always let me know your thoughts.
