Que – I Swear [Video]

Posted on June 7, 2017

Atlanta rapper Que has been a busy man, shooting not one, but five videos from his Can You Dig It 2 project. One of which, the animated "I Swear," premieres today exclusively on HNHH. The video itself is minimalist in nature, but the clever use of comic-book-style animation lends this clip an additional sense of playful character. Plus, the added color imbues the visuals with a certain vibrancy, working in tandem with Que's dynamic flow and clever bars.

Catch Que on his first US headlining tour, The "How We Coming Tour" on June 27th, featuring rapper Deniro Farrar.

T.Y.E – 32 [Album Stream]

Posted on June 7, 2017

T.Y.E drops off his new album, "32".

“[32] is about my pursuit of love and happiness while dealing with mental health and environmental distractions that leave me vulnerable to depression,” T.Y.E. told The FADER. “It’s about lies, misguided opinions from loved ones, and a slight sex addiction that triggers unwanted, unhealthy stress. All of it leaves me alienated from my peers and loved ones — exacerbating my suicidal tendencies and ultimately driving me deeper into bi-polar depression. Ironically, the only thing keeping me from giving in to suicide is the thing that drives me towards suicide in the first place: the pursuit of love and happiness.”

Mean and Young Noble reminisce about their first encounter with Pac as well as break down how the group came to be and the meaning behind their name. “After we did ‘Outlawz,’ Pac was really pleased with what we did on that record and he was like, ‘We’re Outlaw Immortalz . . . because the sh** we’re doing is gonna live forever.’”
