Looks like Kanye West isn't the only rapper from Chi-town who can spit. 

Sir The Baptist just released a powerful new video for his track, "What We Got" -- featuring Donald Lawrence & Company. The video takes viewers on the journey of what it means to keep faith in your life with powerful throwback images and the crooner wearing a suit that states what he believes in.

The moving artist doesn't plan on stopping anytime soon as this release comes shortly after his Tidal X concert performance where he shared the stage with such acts as Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Nicki Minaj, Lauryn Hill, Common and Robin Thicke. Sir not only wrote and produced the record, but he also directed the video.

He is set to release his upcoming project early of next year entitled, Preacher's Kid. For new fans, Sir's "Raise Hell" records is one of his widely known tracks which has received over 2.2 million Spotify streams. That single alone has received a nomination for "Impact Track" for the BET Hip Hop Awards and has been featured in BET's The Gary Owens Show.

You can catch Sir on the "Follow The Robe Tour" for the rest of the month in New Orleans and L.A. from (October 28th-30th.) But for now, take a look at his electrifying new video.

Bridget Kelly Showcases The Pitfalls Of Summer Love On 'The Great Escape'

Through beautiful summer days at the park coupled with late night tryst, Bridget Kelly is taking us on a trip of the sunny highs and cloudy lows of a summer romance gone wrong in The Great Escape.

The four-minute short film chronicles a love story between Bridget and her leading man Scott Machado. At first, they trade flirty eye glances in a park, and then later meet at a party which then segues into the bedroom. Yet towards the end of the film, she finds out he’s been creeping with another girl.

The Great Escape is made from music off Kelly’s latest five-track EP. The Grammy-award winning artist has continually made it a point to release new summer filled music. Back in 2016, she released a new EP, Summer of 17.  And in spite of The Great Escape being about a love gone wrong, Kelly isn't really pressed about relationships in her own life. She just craves something natural and organic.

"I love being in love. However, if something doesn’t work out or happen for me in the timeframe that I want it to, I’ve learned to just let it go.," she told XO NECOLE. " I now take a less intense approach to relationships because I want it to feel natural; I want it to be a normal progression."

Friday (Sept. 13) marks the 25th anniversary of The Notorious B.I.G.'s masterpiece debut Ready To Die, and Stance sock company teamed up with hip-hop elite and friends of Biggie to celebrate the occasion.

On Thursday (Sept. 12) evening, Stance hosted a party at Nas' chicken and waffles restaurant Sweet Chick in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Guests were served cocktails and food themed after Biggie's lyrics (i.e. "escargot, my car go" and "a t-bone steak, cheese eggs"), while enjoying music spun by Statik Selektah, who unveiled a Jadakiss verse over Biggie's "Mo Money Mo Problems" that he says was from the song's original sessions. Attendees of the party included DJ Clark Kent, CJ Fly and Termanology, along with performances by Junior M.A.F.I.A. member Lil Cease and Tek of Smif-N-Wessun.

The evening also revealed a Stance and Sweet Chick "Sweet Chick Down To My Socks" collaborative sock, with a design similar to Biggie's beloved Coogi sweaters. The sock will be sold exclusively at Sweet Chick locations and online for $16.
