NICKI MINAJ “RIGHT THRU ME”
Does Nicki Minaj have her very own version of the Eminem/Rihanna smash “Love the Way You Lie” on her hands? The content is different, but Minaj’s video clip has the same emotion/feel of Eminem’s chart-topper. She also has, minus Rihanna, the Pop-heavy chorus that screams ready for MTV and Top 40 radio. Nicki is promising something for everyone on the actual album, but we know from this official first single who she’s trying to reach. We’re still a few weeks off from her November 22 Pink Friday release, so it remains to be seen if she has any other surprises left.

SOULS OF MISCHIEF “WON ONE”
They weren’t kidding when they told us it was ’93 til infinity. Last year, Souls of Mischief ended a 10 year album hiatus by dropping Montezuma’s Revenge. And it looks like we won’t have to wait another 10 years before they drop another project. Their latest video, “Won One,” is produced by Don Tyler, who took it back to vintage black and white on this one. Below is a link to check out the entire Hieroglyphics crew, and their label Hiero Imperium Records.
After the video is a special clip of Kanye West, John Mayer, and Just Blaze giving props to Souls of Mischief.
ILLECISM’S MOLOTOV VIDEO MIXTAPE
Remember those classic 90’s animes like Ninja Scroll? Illecism does. He had the novel idea to combine his favorite animated clips to bring a mini-movie to his entire mixtape Molotov, which is composed of beats from MF DOOM’s Special Herbs instrumental series.
For more info on Illecism and his crew Fly High, check their blog weareflyhigh.com/blog The footage for this clip was edited by DAG, Illecism and Rayintosh.
The full mixtape will be available for download at www.illthy.com on November 13.
CASUAL “ROCK MY SHIT”
There’s a lot of new faces coming out of the Bay Area (Moe Green, DaVinci). But don’t think the vets are ready to completely bow out. Hieroglyphics member Casual is looking to get his name back out there with “Rock My Shit,” which will be on his 2011 album He Still Think He Raw. That project will be produced by DJ Fresh, and feature appearances from Mitchy Slick & FAB, Grouch, Young Gully, Hongry, Yukmouth, and his Hieroglyphics family.
There’s no release date yet. But that hasn’t stopped Casual from confirming that he’ll have another album out by the end of 2011 called The Hierophant. Don’t call it a comeback…
