Speakerheads, we’ll help you go through the clutter of music videos that come out daily by giving you a quick excerpt for the ones you ought to watch (or not).
Future, “Covered N Money”
Future is breaking the bank in the latest visual for “Covered N Money,” from his upcoming Honest album. With a little help he avoids getting caught by the Feds when there’s been a snitch. Best part of this one, Future frantically dancing (jump?) around in front of a cabin before making his getaway. Too energetic.

Hit-Boy Feat. Nipsey Hussle, “Alert”
Hit-Boy has been making consistent, well, hits for a couple years now, but he hasn’t made a big hit for himself yet. In this Nipsey Hussle-assisted video they take it to Cali streets to revive that Chronic era feeling. Do they succeed? Is this that G Shit? Well, it’s a bouncy track but the video is weak version of usual West Coast lifestyle: Palm trees, Cadillac, ladies, and in-your-face rapping. Nothing too exciting.

Juicy J Feat. Wiz Khalifa & Chris Brown “Talkin’ Bout”
No Chris Brown? No Problem. You can place your bets on Juicy or Wiz. The video simply looks like a good time. Juicy J has never lacked on charisma and another video with Wiz carries that through. As they race down the nightlife I can just imagine how amazing one of those rides feel. Swaggeroni.

Bishop Nehru “You Stressin'”
Young Bishop has gained popularity for being one of the most lyrical up and coming MC’s in the game. Yet, this visual doesn’t give much but a breakdown of the song’s lyrics (we know he can rap). The kid’s got a lot of potential, but music videos gotta be able to add a layer of feeling to a song. I like the kid’s lyrical prowess though. I’m stressed.
