Future ft. YG “Extra Luv,” Action Bronson “Let Me Breathe” & More | Daily Visuals 6.30.17

Future’s presently been on a helluva visual grind and today is no different. This time the ATL rapper links up with West Coast rapper YG for the video to “Extra Luv” where the two indulge in an luxury mansion party where the women two-step it around the pool in bikinis and high heels.

Really surprised there was no twerking to be quite honest.

Action Bronson goes a more interesting route for his clip to “Let Me Breathe” and enlists a gang of old white folks to boogie down with no rhythm and even less choreography.

Check out the rest of today’s drops including work from Young Dolph, YFN Lucci featuring Rick Ross, and more.

BREAKING: Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s Twins Have Names!

Sorry, we couldn’t resist. But yeah, Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s twins actually have names, which most babies do. 

Per TMZ, Hova and Bey have named their new baby boy and girl Sir and Rumi, respectively, and allegedly. TMZ didn’t get this intel via a source in the Carter camp but via a filing for a trademark.

For those not on Carter baby watch, the children were born premature, so they had to spend more time in the hospital to deal with their jaundice.

Until we get a legit confirmation on the baby names, Hova dropped a new album

Sunken Place Shareholder Kodak Black Doesn’t Like His Complexion [VIDEO]

Kodak Black clearly hates himself—specifically, his own brown skin. It’s the only way to explain an interview he conducted in New Orleans that found him again defending his preference for light skin Black women in the most headass manner possible. 

Yesterday (June 29), after playing in Master P’s celebrity basketball game, Chaney Ellis (Chaney TV) interviewed the “Skrt” rapper. Of course, he was asked about his previous commentary, and his answer was the purest of self-hating struggle.

After incorporating suspect logic about men who prefer chubby women not getting backlash, Kodak dropped this whammy.

“I just said I don’t like women with my complexion,” he said. “I like light skin women. I want you to be lighter than me. I love African-American women, but I just don’t like my…skin complexion.”

All deserved slander aside, this is quite sad. There really is nothing wrong with having a preference. But when that reasoning is behind not like something about yourself, it’s a problem. It’s also demeaning to Black women.

Also, he wasn’t done.

He added, “We too gutta. Light skin women…they more sensitive. Nah, nah, they too tough. Light skin women, we can break ’em down more easy, you nah’I’m sayin’?”

Maybe one day Kodak Black will realize the err of his ways. Hopefully, he reads some books and does some soul searching before he speaks on this again. Don’t hold your breath, though.

Watch the interview below.

Kendrick Lamar Addresses Criticism About Buying His Sister A Toyota

While the Internets stay undefeated they needed to show some chill when Kendrick Lamar recently purchased a Toyota Camry as a graduation present for his little sister. The Compton MC explains the decision on Big Boy’s Neighborhood.

Earlier this month his sister took to Instagram to express her gratitude for the new car. But the brotherly gesture was perceived to be low-end by many when considering K-Dot’s earnings as one of Hip-Hop’s hottest performers. During a recent visit to Real 92.3, Lamar clarified his stance on choosing the mid-size vehicle.

“You know, people’s perspective of me and the money that I have and the stages and places I’ve gone to, they probably expect me not to have the same morals and values that I have. I want to carry over to my family, to my little sister or whatnot, ’cause she’s younger than me so she didn’t have to go through the same struggle that me and moms had to go through” he explained.

Kung Fu Kenny also speculated on where the criticism stemmed from. “I don’t know if it’s the public or it’s kids on the Internet that’s 12 years old and 13 and figured, you know, she’s supposed to have a Lamborghini by Kendrick Lamar. Yeah, it’s a trip.”

In the almost hour long interview Kendrick also reveals the original title for Damn and his top five MC list. The Toyota talk starts around the 30 minute mark. Peep it below.
