New French pop/rock sensation, NAMELESS, just released a video for their new single, “Angelina”, off their self-titled EP. Directed by Agathe Riedinger, uses slow motion to emphasize the power of emotions which are evoked in this clip by the four piece band who each try to fight to win Angelina’s affection. They won’t disappoint, trust me (they’re all so sexy). Enjoy!

For this week’s “Video of the Week” I have for you the artist stylings of a Mr. Paul Alexander Thornton. He is truly a gifted artist, and just to add to the whole “I’m a boss” theme he has going on, many of his pieces are done it ballpoint pen, leaving little to no room for error. The video is sped up and features Mr. Thronton working on this piece, which is entitled “Skulls and Flowers”. It should be noted that he made the song that plays in the video as well. Check it out:
Honestly, at this point I’m just seeing how long of a streak I can go on before I can’t write about good rap groups/rappers from New York anymore. Gravediggaz are like, legendary good. Lyrics that are dark as fuck but not some basic I.C.P. kill kill kill shit. This, yet again, NY rap group’s roster is: The Undertaker (Prince Paul),The Gatekeeper (Frukwan), The Grym Reaper (Too Poetic), and The Rzarector (RZA) all great rappers by themselves, together make a nice lil supergroup. Here are two songs from their first album “6 Feet Deep” PUT THE SPEAKERS UP TO YOUR EARS AT FULL VOLUME:
Nowhere to run, Nowhere to hide
Diary of a Madman (feat Shabazz the Disciple and Killah Priest)

Since the phenomenon of rape seems to be more and more popular in modern hip hop, this group of skaters and artists, also known as High 5 Collective, recently produced an unofficial video to Tyler, The Creator’s “Transylvania”, off his latest, “Goblin”. The video is the pure epidemic of what puts OFWGKTA under the label of “shock value music”: skating, drugs, braking things, fighting, and yeah… raping bi**hes; I mean, women. The video is well produced, but, most importantly it shows how much Odd Future has influenced the way and means our generation puts its art out as. Anyway, enjoy:

Company Flow is a Brooklyn based rap group that started in 1993 consisting of members: EL-P, Mr. Len, and later Bigg Jus. The three signed to Rawkus Records and released their first full album “Funcrusher Plus” in 1997. The group toured for a while until Bigg Jus decided to go off and see where is solo career went. El-P and Mr. Len released an instrumental album later titled: “Little Johnny from the Hospitul”. Afterwards the group pretty much fell apart, however, recently there has been rumors of a reunion and possibly another album. Funcrusher Plus is a fucking revolutionary rap album and Company Flow is a fresh ass rap group and so for those of you that have not heard of them you need to at least listen to these two songs from Funcrusher Plus:
8 Steps to Perfection
so. fucking. ill.

Probably the most notoriously known party photographer of our generation, Mark “The Cobrasnake” Hunter recently caught up with Bullett Magazine for a rather interesting interview. Mark, in fact, made sure to convey his “weirdness” while talking about his carrier in the photography industry and private life. Overall this is a must see, both because of we get a deeper peak into The Cobrasnake’s life, and because we get to see a selection of his distinct photography. Enjoy:
