The constant discovery that being a blogger provides me is truly a gift that keeps on giving. Luckily, I’m blessed enough to know so many talented people that I’m never at a need or want for content, but every once in a blue moon, I like to step outside of the circle. This go-round, I discovered J-Kline via the I Support ATX Hip-Hop, Do You? group, specifically his collaborative video with guest vocalist D.D.I. and producer Wave titled Feet Above Water. Director Tommy Kastro caught the collective in a very straight-forward, candid manner as they drop science about keeping your eyes on the prize over Wave‘s bouncy and driving production. The track is a solid piece of motivational and inspirational art about being aware of the both purposeful and accidental trappings that present themselves to an artist on the rise. Definitely check it out, leave a like and a comment, and share it around for everyone to experience.

As usual, I found myself combing through the I Support ATX Hip Hop. Do You? group on Facebook, because I can always rely on finding something new and interesting to share, and today, as usual, it did not let me down. I came across a YouTube video for Austin-based Astrokeyy with an ill thumbnail of his eyes whited out. I’ve always been a sucker for a stark and arresting visual, so I clicked the link, and what I got was straightforward bars from the heart over a no-nonsense lowkey performance video that is enhanced by some subtle but wonderful AfterEffects work. These definitely are not new or unique tricks used in the video, but they are definitely used well by Newhighfilmz for The Hated Freestyle. Throw the video a like and a share, maybe even a comment, and keep your eyes open for more dopeness from all camps involved.
