If you haven’t caught on by now, Tory Lanez stays lit!

The visuals for the singer/rapper’s new song “Loud Pack” featuring NYC rapper Dave East, is the ultimate party. Surrounded by beautiful women in sexy little outfits, the two share how their love for the ladies and getting high is one in the same.

“Keep you right beside me like the Loud Pack / Party with your friends, bring them to the crib,” he sings throughout the video. “It’s all cool with me, I got the Loud Pack.” Dave East adds some braggadocios confidence to the track with his verse, “Got two bitches and they smoking now, we ain’t got no droughtb/ I can show you what this dough about, I woke up on a cloud.”

Co-directed and co-colored by Tory himself, alongside Mid Jordan, the visual is just as much of a vibe as the song. In addition to his direction on the video, he also edited the entire thing by himself. The man literally is a jack of all trades!

Lanez is currently on the “Nobody’s Safe Tour” with Future through June 30, when it ends in Las Vegas. The sophomore follow-up to his debut album, I Told You is expected to come this year.

New Music: Maurice Moore – Sensei

Maurice Moore Sensei

Maurice Moore is not one to sleep on.

In his latest Sunday Gem, Moore is a “Sensei” as he sings about knowing that he’s on the brink of something great. On the track, which he wrote and co-produced with King BNJMN and Auricle, Maurice sings about how he’s “almost famous.”

The up-tempo song mixes together a little confidence and a lot of facts, and Moore lets the people know that he’s been putting in some serious work and he’s coming for that number one spot. Every move he’s made has been purposely calculated and he details it as he sings, “I’m so good it hurts, it’s a gift and curse / I’m just tryna get it like it’s Black Friday and wifey want a purse / Yeah yeah yeah I’m almost famous.”

At about 2-minutes into the song, the track flips as he talks about being a sensei in the love game with his girl. “I ain’t tryna hurt you, I’m just tryna get to know you/ I just wanna love you, don’t wanna control you,” Maurice promises. “They wanna take me away from you, but sensei bite back like cobra/ Wise man stay close to the enemy, so if a nigga act up game over.”

Moore is currently prepping for a summer release of his debut mixtape ‘The Amber Room.’

Leave your troubles at home and go have a good time!

When he witnesses a street artist is being pushed away by one business owner, Andy gifts him a new drawing pad and markers. Later, he meets up with a group of Seahawks fans and they dance in the street.

“Life is too short to spend with someone who don’t care / Let’s dress it up, and take it there / It’s time to party and feel real good,” he sings over the infectious grown-and-sexy production.

Listen: Producer Amorphous Drops DOPE Beyoncé & Jay Z Mashup Project, ‘Bey​-​Z’

Beyonce Jay Z Mashup

The Carter Twins are here (apparently), but now fans want to know if the rumored joint project by Beyoncé and Jay Z will ever arrive. While Hov just confirmed that his new album 4:44 is due out June 30, there is no word if the two will ever put their chemistry into a full LP.

However, if you are dying to hear what a whole project by Bey and Jay could feel like, an up-and-coming producer from Orlando, Florida by the name of Amorphous has released a masterful mash-up album of the Carter’s music named, Bey-Z.

Released last Tuesday (June 13) on Bandcamp, the 8-track mash-up project fuses together some of the superstar couple’s most popular hits into creative new gems.

Amorphous opens the project with a sexy bounce blending together the instrumental of The Neptunes-produced “Frontin” with Beyoncé’s “Partition” vocals. The original was sensual and slightly dark, but this version brings perfect summer vibes.

Another standout is “Irreplaceable Song,” which blends together Bey’s “Irreplaceable” and Jay’s “Song Cry.” Who knew these two would work so well together, but it feels like if the two artists did go back-and-forth about the topics Bey was singing about through Lemonade, it could be similar to this!

“With ‘Bey-Z’, I wanted to pay tribute to two artists in this world who have inspired me artistically, but also for their work ethic,” wrote Amorphous. “For creating opportunity for themselves, for not settling for less, thank you bey + jay.”

Don’t miss this special project. Stream ‘Bey-Z’ below!
