NEW VIDEO | Tyler the Creator feat. Frank Ocean - "She"

Between the dark story line and the beautiful appearance of my soon-to-be-except-he-doesn't-know-it-yet future hubby, "She" is a sick and twisted ode of fatal attraction with the appropriate visuals to do it justice. Goblin in stores and on iTunes now.

YOU OUGHTTA KNOW: Kreayshawn - "Gucci Gucci"

Hip-hop has yet to hear or see anything like 21-year-old Natassia “Kreayshawn” Zolot. Oakland, CA’s latest bad girl dropped her viral video for “Gucci Gucci” not too long ago, and the visuals are spreading like rapid fire.

Rumor has it that the young rebel rapper nabbed a million-dollar deal with Sony, but while the blogs have gone crazy over the supposed signing, Kreayshawn is denying any solid confirmation, saying that “nothing is finalized yet" (Complex). “We’ve definitely been taking a whole bunch of meetings for the past week. We took meetings with every label. They’re not the only people we met with. We’ll make an announcement when everybody is ready, but right now, that’s basically just a rushed ahead rumor.”

Whether worthy of being deemed the greatest in hip-hop or not, her aesthetic appeal (or at least the way it commands attention) is almost undeniable. An alumnus of Berkeley Film School (she has a knack for film and directing) and daughter of an ex-punk rocker mom, her package as a whole is dynamic, which is made apparent by the millions of views she has gotten for “Gucci Gucci” and is also probably why Sony [supposedly] gave her a deal. See what the buzz is about below.

VIDEO | Theophilus London feat. Devonte Hynes - "Century Girl"

Theophilus and Devonte Hynes (whom you may remember from "Flying Overseas" which also featured Miss Solange Knowles) team up yet again for the previously unreleased "Century Girl" a'la the Lovers Holiday movement. Here's to visuals making songs sound better than they already did to begin with. Video features a cameo by MTV's Liz of My Life as Liz.

THIS.. IS.. THE REMIX | Theophilus London - "Flying Overseas (Hasaan Insane Sade Mix)"

The only thing I like more than Theophilus London's "Flying Overseas" is the fact that this "Flying Overseas" remix (found over at hypebeast) includes a sample of the sultry smooth "Keep Looking" instrumental from Sade's Stronger Than Pride. Fly high and start of on a mellow note this early Sunday afternoon with this free download. Bonus remixes (unfortunately not available for download) included below.

NEW VIDEO | Kanye West - "All of the Lights"

Chris Brown, eat your heart out - Rihanna is smoldering hot in Kanye's new video for "All of the Lights". Kanye appears to be fully redeemed and on his throne in this new Hype Williams-directed flick, and it's always nice to see Cudi's face. Photosensitive epileptics take caution, however; all the flashing lights (lights... lights...) may induce seizure.

YOU OUGHTTA KNOW | Tyler the Creator - "Yonkers"

Because this song is way too dope to keep to myself. Disturbing footage alert.
