Spirits Moving :: Tank Washington’s ‘R.I.P. POP’ Video Hits Hard

LNS Crew has never been a collective afraid to grow, whether it be style-wise or personally.  This time around, we find Tank Washington getting deeply person on his music video for R.I.P. POP, a lament to his deceased father.  The song and video honestly speak for themselves.  Take a moment and take it all in.



Last Words :: Tank Washington Shows Us ‘Never’

LNS crew member Tank Washington is setting himself up for a solid 2016.  His long-awaited debut album Pain is set to be released soon, and he’s setting off the charge with the release of his first single and video, Never.  This song and video remind me of that transition period in the 90s where hip-hop wasn’t afraid to get deeply personal, but the tone and approach were shifting into something new.  I look forward to hearing and seeing what Tank and the rest of the LNS cats have in store for us this year.


Find Yours :: ‘The Paradise Lost Tapes’ Touch Down

from the digital desk of IKE:

The Paradise Lost Tapes is a collection of songs that will not be included on the official Paradise LP release, for a variety of reasons.  As with Paradise, the entire project was written by IKE (Soul 20/20 | Los Angeles, CA), produced by Haris Q (LNS Crew | Austin, TX), co-produced by IKE, and mixed and mastered by Shawn Dell (Action Figures Music | Austin, TX).  The album features Laws, Kydd Jones, Khaleel, and more.”

It’s Theraputic :: Tank Washington’s ‘Faded’

Tank Washington of LNS Crew keeps the heat coming… this time, it’s in the form of a music video for the remix of Faded.  This video is powerful in its simplicity…  no big posturing, no outlandish scenarios or idealism, just straightforward talk and face to face realness.


Rear View, Move Ahead :: ‘Leaders Life 4 Ever’ From LNS Crew And Grind Life Films

You already know the drill… LNS Crew and Grind Life Films is dope in any combination.  This time, they connect on a new track off Tank’s latest project 6 Shots.  The visual journey, however, is a collage of moments from the beginnings of their collaborative efforts all the way up to the recently culminated Lz In The Sky tour.  The results are dope as always.
