Following the release of their greatly acclaimed mixtape “No Swords Or Masks” the Brooklyn Ninjas release some footage for “Prostitute”. The video is funy and NSFW, in other words, totally awesome. Enjoy:

Pusha T: “Dont Fuck With Me”

After a number of hits and pretty amazing mixtapes, rapper Pusha T comes with a new release, the “Don’t Fuck With Me” Freestyle. The track, which apparently is aimed at sophomore rappers and more specifically at Drake, finds Push and a female singer (which, to be honest, reminds me of Lykke Li) letting everybody know that you do not want to fuck with them. Song is dope, enjoy:

Naturally Risen, The Art of Pizza

Videographer Michael Evans captures pizza-maker Anthony Mangier, well, making pizza in his short documentary “Naturally Risen.” Evans’ work has been featured here at NVRMND before, and this particular video shares the high production value and emphasis on artesian quality that we enjoyed in the first vid we featured. Be sure to check out Naturally Risen, because after all, who doesn’t like a good pizza?

Huzzah! A New Huzzah Video!

So the folks over at Mishka decided to make a dope music video for my favorite song off Mr Mothafuckin eXquire’s new album Lost in Translation. I’m hyped. The verses from Danny Brown (who’s reppin a sick Duck Sauce shirt), Viktor Vasquez and Himanshu Suri of Das Racist (who’s new album is the fucking TRUTH), and El-P (who looks… kinda hefty) all fucking kill it. Check the original song and its accompanying video below.

Video of the Week: Making Daft Punk Helmets

Graphic designer Harrison Krix spent four months working on these replica, fully functional  Thomas of Daft Punk helmets. This is good news for nerdy Daft Punk fanboys who want to dress up like them, because the official helmet that is made by LED Effects goes for a cool $65,000, way beyond most starving disk jockeys’s income. So sit back and watch how you can make your own with a little hard work and a lot of free time:

Looks legit to me. If you want to find out more about it visit Harrison’s blog here.

Mixtape Review: Under the Influence by Odd Future’s Damier Genesis

Odd Future’s resident stoner Damier Genesis fulfilled his promise to fans and uploaded his new project Under The Influence to his Tumblr at 4:20 pm yesterday.

This is Domo’s second project, after 2010’s Rolling Paper was released only months before “Yonkers” went viral and the group exploded into mainstream media. Since then, Domo has completed two international tours, which included the European festival circuit and major festivals in the U.S. this summer.

Under The Influence sparked Domo as a treading topic worldwide on twitter, and has reached over 100,000 downloads in less than 12 hours.  The mixtape features  classic hip-hop cuts including “Boss Life” by Snoop Dogg, “Guess Who’s Back” by Scarface , and a few Kanye West samples, amongst other production done by new producers Rahki, Uzowuru, Tha Bizness,and Hannibal King.

This mixtape competes with any other Hip-Hop album or mixtape offering this year by any underappreciated stoner rapper or mainstream artist. From beginning to end Under the Influence is a well displayed full length album which never seems to fall apart. If a track is breezy, Domo’s flow seems effortless; his casual flow is his best trait, the way he attacks beats with precision look like its no sweat is one of the many ways his overall flow has improved. “Shine”, “Glory” and “Benediciton” are particularly exceptional tracks, each track has flawless production; but still end up being complementary to Domo’s lyrical ability, not the other way around.

Odd Future head honcho Tyler, The Creator makes an appearance on “Whole City Behind Us” in apparently what was his first verse in 7 months. Good news, Tyler has benefitted from his world travel’s as well, dropping a classic verse letting the haters who have anything negative to say about his album know, “Goblin was a disappointment/Yeah right/shit dropped I bought a house that night”. Casey Veggies also lends a nice verse on a the track “Guess Who’s Back” that lets you know the recent high school grad is in the right mind frame.

Grade: A-
