Drake And Trouble’s ‘Bring It Back’ Video Is A Moody Masterpiece

Today (March 26), Trouble and Mike Will Made-It released the video to “Bring It Back” featuring Drake. The black-and-white short film focuses on the Atlanta rapper navigating the streets and how that intertwines with his partner’s life as a stripper. The video culminates with an appearance from Drake as he plays video games with Mike Will and raps his verse to Trouble.

Last Friday (March 23), Trouble dropped his project, Edgewood. His debut features guest verses from The Weeknd, Fetty Wap, and Boosie Badazz and production from the Ear Drummer head honcho.

Earlier this month, Mike Will Made-It announced that he was signing Trouble to Ear Drummer Records his imprint on Interscope Records. In a statement to Complex, he discussed what makes the Atlanta rapper so special.

“No other producer and artist combo can pull off what Trouble and I are about to do,” Mike said. “Edgewood is only the beginning. I really felt like it was time for a level up for Trouble — I’ve been watching his grind for years now, since we were young as fuck, coming up in Atlanta on the music scene, trying to make something out of nothing. Trouble is the only person from the city who’s going to give you that raw, pure, honest, real rap, mixed with originality, new flavor, new flows and new lingo. He has the grind, work ethic, and dedication to back it up and the city knows.”

Listen to Edgewood below.

Lil Yachty And His Crew Take Over A Desert Trailer Park In New ‘Count Me In’ Video

Fresh off the release of Lil Boat 2, Lil Yachty has dropped a desert-set video for album standout “Count Me In.”

In the Nick Roney-directed vid, Yachty ventures to the sands with his Sailing Team crew, which apparently now includes Danielle Bregoli, a.k.a. Bhad Bhabie, a.k.a. the “Cash Me Outside” girl. She appears around the 36-second mark, squatting next to Yachty outside of a bright yellow trailer. Guess her cameo hints at an official Yachty co-sign?

Elsewhere in the grainy vid, there’s a guy swinging a samurai sword, a couple boxers duking it out, and, for some disturbing reason, a cat hanging from a tree branch. Meanwhile, Yachty models his finest pair of overalls while he and his crew take over a skate park and drive ATVs through the sand dunes. Just your average desert hang.

For more from Lil Yachty, check out his recent, Lil Boat 2-centric interview with MTV News below.

Post Malone And Ty Dolla $ign Are Apocalypse Buddies In ‘Psycho’ Video

Ever wonder how Post Malone and Ty Dolla $ ign would fare in the apocalypse? Look no further than the video for “Psycho.” The James DeFina-directed visual sees Malone and Ty stranded in a desert wasteland where only the powers of flamethrowers and R&B music can set them free.

It isn’t exactly clear what caused this disastrous future. The only hint viewers ever get is a wolf puppet that potentially ate all of the people except for Post, Dolla $ ign, and a kid holding a teddy bear. Also, flamethrowers are the only weapons that seem to kill these puppets even though the “Rockstar” singer is seen in a tank for most of the video. Why didn’t he ever use the tank?

In a 2017 Rolling Stone interview, Post Malone described his affinity for guns and why he is preparing for something bad to happen.

“They’re fun, they’re practical, and bad shit happens,” said Malone. “If you hurt me, I’m gonna hurt you back…The world is going to shit. They’re taking away a lot of our rights. We have a shitty thing going on in the White House – I don’t like Trump. But I don’t think it’s just him. Something’s coming.”

Guess this is the future that Malone was preparing for.

Migos And Drake Prove The Soul Train Line Is Forever In ‘Walk It Talk It’ Video

Migos are becoming the undisputed kings of hip-hop music videos. Between the kung fu movie-inspired “Stir Fry” and Offset and Ric Flair’s opulent masterpiece “Ric Flair Drip,” the Atlanta trio is proving they are a cinematic force to be reckoned with in 2018. Yesterday (March 18), Migos decided to pay homage to the 1970s with the visual for “Walk It Talk It” featuring Drake.

The Daps and Quavo-directed music video honors the legendary television show Soul Train. Between the expertly crafted afros, Drake’s dripping Jheri curl, and the famous Soul Train line, “Walk It Talk It” is proof that ’70s style never dies. Fans are even treated to Offset’s rare pop lockin’ moves.

Migos has a history of hilarious music videos. In a recent MTV News interview, director Sing J. Lee touched upon how funny Migos were on set for the “Stir Fry” video.

“When we were doing take after take … the whole set was cracking up,” said Lee. “Me and the label were discussing that actually — you know what, we probably have some really funny moments, amazing moments, and we should definitely use them and roll them at the end like the Rush Hour bloopers or the Jackie Chan movies.”

So far this year, Migos have become martial arts masters, wrestling demigods, and disco superstars. Hopefully, the next frontier for Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff has something to do with cowboys or aliens or taking down the mad titan Thanos. Marvel, give Migos a call.

G-Eazy And Charlie Puth Party Through The Decades In New ‘Sober’ Video

G-Eazy broke out the costume trunk for his latest video, rocking throwback looks from decades past for the Charlie Puth-assisted “Sober.”

The Colin Tilley-directed video kicks off with a bloodied and bruised Eazy waking up in a pile of trash, seemingly suffering a hellish hangover. He stumbles into a building that turns out to be a kind of portal, and spends the rest of the vid traveling through time. First he downs beer in the Prohibition Era, then he’s a horny husband in the ‘50s, and then he’s a long-haired hippie reveling in a psychedelic ‘70s house party. The vid comes full-circle after Eazy’s transformation into a ‘90s rave kid who runs from the cops and eventually finds himself landing in that same pile of trash.

Puth, meanwhile, doesn’t get too involved in the chaos, only appearing to sing the chorus from atop a roof in a junkyard. Bummer for him.

“Sober” follows the Halsey collaboration “Him & I” as the latest single from G-Eazy’s third album, The Beautiful & Damned. For more from the rapper, see him reading his most “extra” Instagram comments in the vid below.

People Are Freaking Out Watching Drake And Travis Scott Play Video Games

Who knew celebrities like Drake and Travis Scott are normal humans who do normal human things? Today (March 15), the internet went crazy after Drake joined famous Fortnite player Tyler “Ninja” Blevins to play the friendly survival video game.

Fans could see the “God’s Plan” rapper and Ninja play on the popular live-streaming video platform Twitch. Ninja is one of the most famous people on the platform, which led to an Instagram follow by Drake, reports Kotaku.

However, the fun didn’t stop there. Travis Scott and JuJu Smith-Schuster of the Pittsburgh Steelers joined to ratchet up the chaos. At one point, Scott goes, ”God’s plan, let’s get it,” when Graham revives him in the game. The proceedings looked so fun that Logic, Post Malone, and Lil Yachty all had something to say about the game on Twitter.

According to CNET, the stream broke the all-time concurrent viewers record on the platform with 600,000 people checking in to watch a virtual Drizzy and La Flame. The previous record was 388,000 views logged by Dr DisRespect.

Of course, a viral Drake moment wouldn’t be anything without fans, celebrities, and Twitch itself turning the event into memes.

Check Out the Oregon Ducks’ Sneaker-Filled Basketball Facility // Video

With March Madness right around the corner, Coiski’s George Kiel traveled to the University of Oregon to get an in-depth tour of the basketball team’s impressive facility. Unsurprisingly, since Oregon is Phil Knight’s alma mater, the basketball team stays laced up with fresh Nike and Jordan kicks.

Check out the video below to see Oregon’s basketball facility, Knight’s private suite and the plethora of Oregon-themed Nike sneakers the basketball team has rocked over the last several years.

Lil Yachty Is A Master Pastry Chef In New Diplo Video

After devoting his recent music video excursions to letting DRAM be dapper amid beautiful desert panorama, being a perfect piano and dance partner for MØ, and literally chilling atop a Zamboni with Tory Lanez and Cashmere Cat, Diplo has done the natural thing for his latest: given the spotlight over to Lil Yachty and Santigold.

In the new Daniel Pappas-directed clip for “Worry No More,” the pair are pastel-clad star bakers, sprinkling flour and sugar and making the most resplendent-looking doughnuts and pastries you can imagine.

Behind them at one point lies a tray of doughnuts decorated with all sorts of miracle items, like cereal bits, cookies, and of course, frosting. I am hungry as I write this. (Also, someone please inform Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood that this video exists.)

The song itself is as colorful and sweet as the video, and on the chorus, Yachty delivers a good mantra that we should all remember as we march into the weekend and beyond: “So catch me if you can / I’m chasing after my dreams.”

“Worry No More” is reportedly set to be included on Diplo’s upcoming California EP. For his sake, I hope more pastry-themed music vids lie in all of our futures.

Offset And Ric Flair Are Rolex Wearin’ Son Of A Guns In New Video

Nature Boy is back. Today (March 1), Offset, 21 Savage, and Metro Boomin dropped the video to “Ric Flair Drip” featuring the legendary wrestler himself. The Shomi Patwary-directed video is an epic display of opulence and decadence, much like the platinum blonde star it pays homage to. Throughout the video, Offset, Ric Flair, and Metro Boomin ride in a Rolls-Royce, stroll through an enormous mansion, and show off watches that might make you go blind.

Migos are wrestling fanatics and have peppered references to the sport throughout their career. Offset’s famous “Woo, Woo, Woo, Woo,” adlib during the intro of “Bad and Boujee” is eerily similar to one Flair used throughout his career. Offset’s appreciation for Ric Flair runs so deep he even got a chain of the wrestler in one of his signature poses.

The Atlanta trio has also proven their love for wrestling on songs like “Too Hotty,” which is a reference to Scotty 2 Hotty a famous WWF and WWE wrestler of the 90s and 2000s. In an interview with MTV News correspondent Gaby Wilson, Migos discussed their love of wrestling.

“If you listen to a lot of our music we rap about a lot of things we see and been apart of growing up sports, all 90′s era shit,” says Quavo.

We can WOOO! to that.

We Break Down Where Drake’s $1 Million Went In The ‘God’s Plan’ Video

Drake has been in a giving mood, and it all came to fruition in the video for “God’s Plan.” Over the course of almost six minutes, we see crying faces, smiling children, and Drake’s generosity at the center of it all. Drizzy even hopped on Instagram stories to ask his followers to get into the giving spirit.

“I am not into challenges on IG,” wrote Drake. “I find them annoying…but today I am going to challenge everyone to just go out and do something for someone, anything, the smallest thing, just to bring another human being some joy and please tag me in it somehow so I can see all the love being spread.”

Viewers know the 6 God gave away $ 996,631.90 to the residents of Miami in the “God’s Plan” video, which begs the question — where did all of that money go? There is so much happening onscreen that if you blink, you might miss the latest good deed from Toronto’s reigning king.

Below, MTV News compiled a rundown of Drake’s best deeds and how much they cost. Unfortunately, we probably didn’t catch them all.

  1. OVO Market Sweep

    Total: $ 50,000

    Drake gave Miami residents the most epic game of Supermarket Sweep. “Anything you guys want in the store is free,” Drizzy says through a megaphone in the middle of the grocery store. According to E! News, the trip cost Graham $ 50,000.

  2. Started Out Doin’ College Shows

    Total: $ 50,000

    The Miami Hurricane reported that Drake gave a $ 50,000 check to Destiny James, a junior studying public health at the University of Miami. In an Instagram post thanking Drake, James wrote, “You don’t understand what this means to me. I would’ve never imagined this happening to me. I’m just a girl from Denmark, SC that wants to MAKE IT and be somebody and for you to see my hard work means the world. Thank you so much. God I thank you.”

  3. Icy Like the Frost School

    Total: $ 10,000

    Drake can also be seen giving the University of Miami Frost School of Music a $ 10,000 donation in the video.

  4. Toy Story

    Total: $ 69,500 donation = $ 50,000 directly to the shelter + $ 19,500 in Target gift cards to families

    Drake donated a $ 50,000 check to the Lotus House Women’s Shelter, which supports and provides for homeless women and children. On top of the donation, the Toronto rapper also handed out $ 150 Target gift cards to 130 women and toys for all the children, TMZ reports.

  5. Fast Times At OVO High

    Total: $ 25,000

    A significant portion of the “God’s Plan” video was filmed at Miami Senior High School in South Florida. Drake did more than let students be extras in the visual, He also gave $ 25,000 to the school and agreed to design OVO uniforms for the scholars, reports ABC News.

  6. Fire And Desire

    Total: $ 20,000

    The City of Miami Fire Department also got some love from Graham with a $ 20,000 check.

  7. Shut Down Saks Fifth

    Total: $ 10,000 (honestly, probably a lot more)

    The 6 God took over Saks Fifth for a special woman, Odelie Paret. The head of OVO was inspired by a Miami Herald story, which details how the housekeeper’s commute can take almost three hours as she works at a physically demanding job to support her family. Drake and Antonio Brown from the Steelers reportedly treated the woman to a spa day, dinner at StripSteak, and a shopping spree.

  8. Random Acts Of Kindness

    Total: Priceless

    Honestly, Drake gives away so much in the “God’s Plan” video it is almost impossible to calculate it all without calling up the OVO accountant. We may never know what deal Drizzy got on the cars or the stack of cash he hands out to each family. Thankfully, that isn’t the point. You don’t have to be one of the biggest rappers alive to make someone’s day. Sometimes all it takes is some well-choreographed dance moves and a kind deed.
