Today (Sept. 6), Torii debuts an eye-catching video for the project's single "Big Big Trouble," which evokes all the primal instincts our brains can produce when we see something we need to have.

“Creating a visual for this record was very special for me. It was really important to visually emulate the juxtaposition of love and lust in an animalistic way,” says Torii about the music video. “The way that a female spider eats their lover is similar to the feeling of being lustfully consumed by another human. The video both conveys and captures the underlying emotion of knowing that you’re going to catch your prey before they do, and knowing what you’re capable of doing to them.”

“'Big Big Trouble' is a song that was created after we were already done with the album,” DJ Premier stated. “I started playing around with the 'Uh-Oh' scratch, which set a foreboding tone—you know trouble is coming! Torii immediately gravitated to it. The Papoose scratch made it all complete for the lyrics to spill onto the track.”

Flow Riiot is set for release on Sept. 29 through DJ Premier’s TTT (To The Top) imprint.

Missy Elliott Creates A Relationship Manifesto For "DripDemeanor" Video

Sporting a black dominatrix-style jumpsuit paired with blue hair, Missy Elliott is standing firm on her commandments when it comes to men, as depicted in her video for “DripDemeanor” featuring Sum1.

Viewers are transported into an alternate universe of Elliott’s high fashion and eccentric sensibilities. After that trip, a neon setting takes over where Missy and Sum1 sing and rap about love, sex and the rules that men have to follow in order to get both.

Missy never disappoints when it comes to her art but she assures fans that she wants to leave a deeper legacy than just her legendary work.

“Whenever God decides to call, I want to have that legacy of being able, not just music or videos that people thought were great,” she told Marie Claire. “Mary [J. Blige], Faith [Evans], Puff [Sean Combs], all of them taught me so many things. I want to be that person that people say, ‘Hey, Missy said she did it like this.’”

“I do want to make the generation behind feel like, don’t be afraid, because we are in a time where so many people can be artists. Now you can just post up, and if it gets to the right person, then it’s just viral,” she continued. “I want to be able to encourage those who don’t go viral....A lot of people out there that have 452 or 100 followers may be talented. I want them to not feel like they have to do what everybody else is doing to gain that attention. Just be you. It’s going to catch hold somewhere.”

Nicki Minaj Hints Towards Collaboration With Adele

Two of the biggest artists in music may be joining forces. Nicki Minaj playfully confirmed a collaboration with Adele.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Minaj responded positively to a possibly working with the Grammy winner. "Adele made me swear to secrecy that I'm not allowed to tell anyone that I'm working with her," she said at her Fendi Prints On fashion line celebration in Beverly Hills Tuesday (Oct. 15). "....And that we already shot a video. And it's an epic song! Ahh!"

Either Nicki is great at trolling or this is actually happening. The two have often shared their appreciation for each other, from Adele reciting "Monster" during Carpool Karaoke to Nicki singing the singer's jams on social media.

Nicki's "retirement" was rather short as she's also on the Charlie's Angels soundtrack with Ariana Grande. However, she still plans to have a modest wedding with her husband Kenneth Petty and expand her family.

"When I was little, I always imagined princess and marriage and the wedding and now it's more to me about the life, the future, the love, the partnership, than the wedding," she said about wanting a simple reception. "[It's] so strange cause I didn't expect myself to be one of those people who didn't care about the hoopla, but I really don't. I just kind of feel like it doesn't mean as much as it used to mean because of the other part, the real part, I have it now and I'm so happy,"

"We practice all the time, like, you know, three times a night," she added. "... At first, I was like, 'I want it now. I want it now.' And then I started thinking if I want it right, right now or if I want to wait another year because I have a couple of things that I have to do."

Minaj's Fendi Prints On capsule collection launches Oct. 16.

Dreezy And Jacquees Rekindle Flames In "Love Someone" Video

Dreezy and Jacquees decided to reignite their relationship in the video for the love ballad titled, “Love Someone. ”

Directed by Jake Riley and John Lathan, the visual follows the breakup of several couples. Playing the role of a scorned lover, Dreezy decides to light her man’s car on fire with gasoline. Meanwhile, Jacquees reflects on losing his woman.

Dreezy spoke to Coveteur about the lovelorn record.

"‘Love Someone’ kind of fell in place on its own. I was in the studio working on tracks, and I wanted a real-life personal song that I could include,” Dreezy said. “I was drawing inspiration from past broken relationships on my verses, and Jacquees just happened to pull up to the studio and lay down the perfect hook. I didn’t even plan for him to be on it, but it spoke to my heart and the emotion I had on the song. There was a point where I almost cried listening to it back.”

The record appears on Dreezy’s Big Dreez, which was released back in January. Jacquees is slated to release his forthcoming album, King of R&B,  on Nov. 8.
