Following the release of his Rosedale EP, Iman Nunez released a new video for his song “at this moment.” The visual, shot by TwentyTwoTime, while directed by Iman himself shows Iman rapping in the countryside on fields and abandoned houses. 

He raps about how he needs help overcoming issues and finding peace as he chases his musical aspirations. During the video, he raps on the steps of a burning house. In certain scenes, the video blacks out only revealing Iman rapping through a window.

Dealing with the pressures that life has to offer, the Iman directed video is used to vent about his current problems. Whether it’s his career, family and self, he lays it all on the table in order for him to confront it and move forward. Even when the house was burning, the show went on. “I got more feelings I can’t knock yet, thoughts will reappear and my fears will just keep knocking. Peers will give me cheers as my dreams will keep popping, little do they know it’s a struggle to keep honest… I’m struggling with focusing on art when I done put in so many years because the money ain’t consistent, though you know it’s my career…” says Iman.

23-year-old Richmond, VA rapper FNF Chop shares his new track and video for “Danger” via RCA Records. This new song is aggressive and gritty, staying in the signature style of FNF Chop’s music.

Earlier this year, Chop connected with Brooklyn drill rapper Fivio Foreign in new single “Repeat.” The menacing beat allows for both rappers to trade boastful lyrics and flex on having no competition. He followed that up with “Eenie Meenie” which showcases Chop’s menacing flow. He followed up the release with “Yea Yea Yea.”

It was also announced that TOBi will be performing at Afrochella this December. 

TOBi on his single “Hoodwinked”: “The character in the song is a child that upon witnessing issues in the home, it affects how he sees the world. He has a general distrust for systems and adults. What happens when the veil is lifted? As he gets older, he starts to see things for what they really are. He’s on a quest for truth. A very challenging quest. Process these complex emotions with big energy and set yourself free.”
