VIDEO: Talay 'Long Way' 

Talay's video for 'Long Way' puts the Gainesville, Georgia rapper in a fairly straightforward clip but one with a lot of significance.  Talay stands where he grew up and lets you know how far he's had to go to make it.  He alternates between a Deshaun Watson football jersey and a Brent Benson basketball jersey.  Both athletes also hail from Gainesville, Georgia and exemplify the determination and hard work that Talay brings to his music.  Watch the video for 'Long Way' below and check out more from Talay here!

Kendrick Lamar & SZA: 'All The Stars'

The recent announcement that Kendrick Lamar would produce and curate the soundtrack to Marvel's upcoming Black Panther movie was pretty exciting.  Following the news came this new song, 'All The Stars'.  This one puts Kendrick Lamar on the mic with Top Dawg labelmate SZA.  They both had incredible albums in 2017, so it's a perfect start to 2018 for them to release such a big single together.  Preorder the album here, if only to keep watch on the track list when it's finally revealed.  The album is slated for release in February.
