Vince Staples easily had one of our favorite projects last year with his Hell Can WaitEP. Then, taking almost no time off, Vince kicked off his 2015 as he toured with Odd Future’s Earl Sweatshirt for their Not Redy 2 Leave Tour. And now to keep the Staples’ movement going, the LA Leakers have released Staples’ new track, titled ‘Señorita’. If you are expecting this to sound like the Justin Timberlake track of the same name, don’t. This track is fire and it is all rap.
Listen to ‘Señorita’ at the LA Leakers now. You can purchase the track on iTunes at 9 PM PST.

Last night Odd Future’s Earl Sweatshirt brought the “Not Redy 2 Leave” Tour to The Rave in Milwaukee, WI. Kicking things off for the Wisconsin crowd was the talented Queens native, rapper Remy Banks. Performing a number of songs from his growing collection of tracks, the highlight of Banks’ set came with the drop of his new Left Brain produced and ‘C.R.E.A.M.’ inspired single, ‘.rem’. Following Banks’ energetic performance was Vince Staples, easily one of the most talented young lyricists who made quite a buzz last year with his Hell Can WaitEP. And soon after the Long Beach rapper’s performance of his ‘Blue Suede’ track, Staples brought out the man of the night, OFWKTA’s Earl Sweatshirt.

Some say music videos are a lost art. With MTV and VH1 airing more reality TV programs than actual music videos, it is no surprise that a lot of artists have abandoned the music video route of promotion. Not all artists fortunately. A lot of big artists know that fans crave visuals, even if they are streaming it from their phone or iPad. And a lot of emerging artists know that dope visuals going viral are a great way to gain exposure and put your name on the map. For our best music videos of 2015 (so far), which include selections from Raury, Childish Gambino, Kanye, WebsterX and more, we have a mix of both. Check out our picks and see who got our number one spot.
