2 Chainz puts on for ATL, Bow Wow returns as a rock star, Esperanza Spalding soulfully uplifts the NYC streets, and newcomer Brianna Perry pays tribute to Marilyn Monroe, Miami style. Check out four virals that deserve extra playtime starring 2 Chainz, Bow Wow, Esperanza Spalding, and Brianna Perry.
2 Chainz, formally known as Tity Boi, has proved himself through his reinvention from Playaz Circle, his mixtape, “T.R.U. Realigion,” and a recent sold out NYC show. The rapper takes us back to his down south territory and reps College Park heavy in “Got One.” The video is laced with crew love, corner stores, and a Hawks fitted among other ATL signifiers. Similaaaac!
Cash Money Records does it again, this time with a Bow Wow comeback. His video, “Sweat,” feat. Lil Wayne, is packed with flashing lights and fast cars. “Sweat” brings motorcycle gang style to the club.
Through a heartfelt Afrocentric allegory, Esperanza Spalding’s latest uses the magic of New York City to uplift and educate. “Black Gold,” released in correspondence with Black History Month, features the gospel sounds of Algebra Blessett.
“Marilyn Monroe” depicts the stylish Brianna Perry with a unique twist on typical legendary Monroe look. The video features Ms. Perry’s Miami sound and style.
