Teck-Zilla feat. Phlow – Go Hard (Bigger Than A Monster) [Video]

It’s a celebration of Hip-Hop culture in the energetic video for “Go Hard,” the brand-new single from Montreal-based producer Teck-Zilla and his frequent collaborator, the inimitable Phlow. These two Str8Buttah artists have been dropping some serious heat over the past several years, and their work together only seems to get stronger with each subsequent release. Not only that, but they’re capable of switching up their styles while retaining what makes their music so damn dope in the first place: unquestionable talent paired with distinctive style. It’s all on display in the “Go Hard” video shot by themythcreate, and edited by fellow Str8Buttah TV member Rcube, who blends visuals that were shot on location in Lagos, Nigeria during this year’s RedBull-sponsored “Battle Of The Year” for breakdancers. As the b-boys kill it on stage, Phlow flaunts her skills on the mic over Teck’s boisterous production that features a crazy flip on the chorus. As for what’s next from these two, Teck is currently working on new projects as he plans for an upcoming excursion in Ibiza, alongside South African DJ Black Coffee (who produced Drake’s “Get It Together”). Phlow is back at work on her official debut album, ‘Flux,’ after recently

Phlow – Str8 Up [Video]

After releasing an ill all-female posse cut with members of her Str8Buttah Productions crew, Lagos-based artist Phlow goes solo and gets fired up in the video for her new single, “Str8 Up”. Lyrically, she’s as sharp as ever, spitting slick lyrics centering on the concept of never settling and never slowing down as an artist. And she does it over a more minimalist and booming instrumental from frequent collaborator Teck-Zilla, who’s definitely showing off his versatility here, too. These two have a number of standout tracks together over the past few years, and they only seem to outdo each other with each subsequent release. While Phlow’s lyrics absolutely drive the visuals for “Str8 Up”, there’s plenty to be said for the stellar work of the directorial crew, RCube Vision. They drop bits and pieces of her bars throughout the video by highlighting her particularly tough rhymes with animation, which is complemented by some serious dance moves. It all feels like a celebration of the global Hip-Hop culture we’re living in, and “Str8 Up” is one hell of an anthem for it. Check out the visuals and stay on the lookout for more leaks and info on Phlow’s forthcoming LP, “Flux”,

Phlow feat. Mz Kiss, Pryse & Pasha – MP3 [Video]

Str8buttah Productions proudly presents “MP3” single/video which is a no holds barred display of skills by 3 emcees. Inspired by Chuck D’s quote “The Super MC is the one that can spit in more than two languages”, Teck-Zilla recruits the trio of Pryse, Phlow and Mz Kiss who all storm in with a unique blend of English, Pidgin English and Yoruba languages showing that Hip-hop is truly a global culture. The video was shot by Str8buttah member RCube. “MP3” is a bonus cut off Phlow’s yet to be titled upcoming project.

Phlow feat. Khandie – Love It Or Not [Video]

After a successful run of a 4 week music campaign titled #PhlowFridays. The budding emcee Phlow wraps 2016 with a dancehall tinged single/video titled Love It Or Not featuring up and coming singer Khandie. The song is essentially Phlow blocking out the naysayers and undesirable elements in order to stay the course to get what is deserving of her in this rap game. The video was shot on location in different parts of Lagos where the visual crew follows Phlow for a recording session, a radio interview ending with a performance at a live improve show which all happened in a day. The video also sums up her exploits since she dropped her debut EP (Mind,Body & Phlow) early in 2016 from being featured on big international sites and performing on the same stage with some of Nigeria’s top acts.

Phlow – Asuai [EP]

It takes serious talent to say so much with so little, but anyone who’s listened to the Lagos-bred rapper, Phlow, knows just how gifted she is as an artist. And she’s putting all of her skills on full display here with, ‘Asuai,’ a brief but gripping mini-EP, produced entirely by Swedish beatsmith, Ryko. In a little more than five minutes, Phlow pieces together a tightly knit narrative that follows a young girl falling in and out of love. You get the head-over-heels vibes on “Little Girl, Big’Ole World” and “Building Walls,” the latter of which features such striking imagery as “Want to color you with all my thoughts.” But like most things, the love can’t last. The relationship begins to fall apart on “Cracked Windows,” and Phlow realizes it’s time for her to end it on “The Exit.” Here, too, she pulls you in with her story-driven and vibrantly written lyrics. When she spits, “Remember all the times my lungs would fill with you, I’d savor,” you know exactly what she’s getting at. Of course, Asuai—it means “My Year” in Ukwani, a dialect spoken by the Delta Igbos in Eastern Nigeria—is notable for its rich, diverse instrumentals. Phlow and Ryko

Phlow – Mind, Body & Phlow [EP]

‘Mind, Body & Phlow’ is the impressive, jaw-dropping new EP from gifted Lagos, Nigeria-based artist Phlow, who made waves last fall with the project’s supremely ill lead single, “Reputation.” While that neck-snapper of a track showcased that Phlow could straight spit, she reveals other sides of her artistry across the seven tracks on here. She shows off her ability to write a love-centric tune on the melodic “Reminder” with singer Gogo, lets her hair down for the bouncy, Maka-featured “Looking at Nobody,” and deftly blends hip-hop and soul with Maka once again on “The Final One.” Phlow’s still ripping apart beats, though, and that’s evident on the aforementioned “Reputation” and brand-new cut “Bank It.” Armed with a “99 Problems”-sampling hook and slapper of an instrumental, she lets loose for a minute of pure rhyming. And it’s only right that she brings it all home with a remix of “Reputation,” which flips the bangin’ original into a laid-back reggae jam. If you didn’t know Phlow before, you damn sure will now. ‘Mind, Body & Phlow’ is now available for stream, via Str8 Buttah Productions.
