Premiere: Niko Brim Wonders The Stakes Of Creeping On 'Feds Watching'

On his catchy new single "Feds Watching" featuring Kamari, Niko Brim shares his affection for a woman he's creeping with. Over infectious xylophones and poppy snares, Niko uses melodic flows

“It’s about the girl being so bad, it’s dangerous,” Niko explains. “Also, you never know who’s watching and plotting on you. It's also about sticking with somebody even when things aren’t going the best.”

Niko Brim, who hails from Mount Vernon, New York, said he recorded "Feds Watching" along with several other songs in one night, but that this stood out from the pack.

"This was one of my favorite cook ups. That night I did 4 or five records and I knew this one was a standout. It's a good feeling but it's really about a girl being so pretty that she makes things hard for you. It's a rough spot to be in you know? Do you stand ten toes or let her be? Either way, I can't leave her alone."

The Mount Vernon rapper, who is also the co-founder of the CYN crew, released his previous album A Thousand Pictures: Book Two in 2018. Listen to "Feds Watching' below.

The Game Pays Homage To Nipsey Hussle In "Stainless" Video Feat. Anderson .Paak

The Game is allegedly putting the finishing touches on his final album, Born 2 Rap. But first, the Cedar Block Piru is sharing the new music visual to the Anderson .Paak-assisted record, "Stainless."

Directed by Aaron “A.G.” Green, the video finds the Compton rapper cruising through L.A. at 2 a.m. in his custom blue Lamborghini with Nipsey Hussle’s face painted on the hood. The veteran MC later rides down Sunset Boulevard with his stainless steel (gun) by his side and recreates his iconic Documentary album cover.

The Game, a hip-hop historian in his own right, also mentions some important names on this track. "Baby Lane killed Pac, niggas killed Baby Lane/Buntry was bustin' back, Heron died in his chains/A fatal car crash killed Fatal Hussein/R.I.P. Kadafi, ridin' down memory lane," raps The Game.

Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson was an alleged member of the South Side Compton Crips and was a person of interest in the brief investigation of the murder of acclaimed rapper Tupac Shakur. Many hip-hop heads know Baby Lane from getting beaten up and stomped on by Marion "Suge" Knight and a slew of Pirus inside of a Las Vegas casino lobby. It's alleged that after the casino incident, Baby Lane and three other Crips went looking for Pac. After spotting Pac and Suge in BMW, Anderson shot Pac from the backseat of the car he in. However, no one was ever charged in Pac's murder and Lane was killed in 1998.

Buntry, who The Game also mentions in the above rap, allegedly chased the car that did the drive-by on Pac and Suge. Pac mentioned Buntry in "To Live and Die in LA," a song from the late rapper's The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory album. Buntry, a Mob Piru, was murdered in 2002.

The Game's Born 2 Rap is slated for a Nov. 29 release. Watch The Game's "Stainless" video above.

Royce Da 5'9" Places Value On Black Life With "Black Savage" Feat. T.I., CyHi The Prynce, Sy Ari Da Kid, And White Gold

Royce Da 5’9″ has been relatively quiet this year. However, the Detroit rapper returns with a new record titled, "Black Savage," which has been released as part of the Jay-Z's Inspire Change Initiative.

Featuring T.I., CyHi the Prynce, T.I., Sy Ari Da Kid, and White Gold,"Black Savage" finds the rappers extolling black life, black culture, and black minds. Royce, who has been on a lyrical killing spree for the past three years, bodied the instrumental.

"I am the black savage/Ali and Foreman in Zaire fightin' for black magic rifles and flack jackets/ Momma was suicidal poppa had bad habits/ Product of true survival, rocker like Black Sabbath/ Hoppin up out the Chevy Pac, Biggie, Machiavelli/ OG like Nas or Reggie culture like Ox in Belly/ Vulgar like Akinyele focus like Dr. Sebi/ We did it your way but now the culture is boppin' to our Sinatra medley/ I'm limitless energy they gimmicks and imagery/ Kendrick, Cole and the Kennedys lyrical Holy Trinity," he raps.

Jay-Z and the NFL recently announced Inspire Change, a non-profit organization, back in August. One of the programs from the organization is Songs of the Season. Song of the Season will run throughout this year's NLF season and will showcase artists who will create a song for NFL promotions each month during the season.

Each song will debut during an in-game broadcast. Meek Mill, Meghan Trainor, and Rapsody were the first Inspire Change advocates this season.
