Easily the biggest Soca track of the year is Bunji Garlin‘s “Differentology”. You may not recognize it by name, but I promise you’ve heard it in either its original or some remixed form in the last few months.

Your favorite song from your favorite album finally gets its video as Kendrick Lamar takes us to church for “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe”. As with everything Kendrick’s done so far (thankfully), the video isn’t as simple as first appearances may lead you to believe.
The White Mandingos are emcee Murs, Bad Brains founding member, Darryl Jenifer and Ego Trip‘s, Sacha Jenkins. “Mandingo Rally” is the 2nd single from their upcoming album, The Ghetto’s Tryna Kill Me, due June 11. “‘Mandingo Rally’ is a sonic rally organized by The White Mandingos (AKA Murs, Darryl Jenifer and Sacha Jenkins SHR). Inside of this rally, Cali rap killer Murs (AKA Tyrone White) drops Jewels for you to find. But once you find them, he snatches them right back. Because you have to earn these jewels. Murs rocks like a flamethrower atop a beat sicker than Leather Face. Breezy, Weezy, Jeezy, Cheezy–all of y’all best protect ya neck.”
New video for Pusha T’s “Numbers On The Boards”. I really expected this song to be “bigger” than it is. Maybe because I’m old and this song reminds me of the songs I used to put on homemade mixtapes in middle school. D’ahh well. You kids don’t know nothin’! Pusha T’s My Name Is My Name will be here July 16.

The Rapture, The Juan MacLean and more.
I don’t recall Kaytranada having an official video for any of his work before. “Holy Hole Inna Donut” is from the producer’s outstanding Kaytra Todo EP.
New video for Janelle Monae’s “Q.U.E.E.N.”, with Erykah Badu, and it’s just as interesting as you would expect from this pairing.
The ever-secretive outfit, The Black Opera enlists Mayer Hawthorne for their latest, “Queen of Hearts”: “While in search of his Queen of Hearts, or some would say, KUEENZ of Heart, the King was not very trusting with any of his beautiful possibilities. Once he learned how to trust himself, then and only then, was he able to trust and L O V E Without A Limit.” – The Black Opera
