Maliibu Miitch Spreads Girl Power In "Give Her Some Money" Video

'There's no force stronger than a bond between women.'

In hip-hop, a genre plagued by sexism and misogyny, even the smallest nuisances of women's empowerment matter. That's why Bronx native Maliibu Miitch looks to uplift women in any way she can in her climb to the top.

The visual for her latest single "Give Her Some Money" highlights this goal to the fullest extent. Directed by Nimi Hendrix, the video showcases the everyday struggle women go through as dancers, waitresses, and artists in their grind.

At the end of the video, Mitch can be seen handing her waiter a wad of cash before the screen turns black and the words, "There's no force stronger than a bond between women" appear before the viewer.

Acting as an intro to her upcoming EP due later this summer, Maliibu's gritty yet feminine aesthetic is revealed throughout the video as they balance each other out in a natural fashion.

For the premiere with Paper Mag, the rapper shares the personalities behind her creative moniker.

"Maliibu is more a bubbly side. When people think of Maliibu, they think of sunny, out in California," she said. "I'm very much like that. My personality is naturally outgoing. I'm loud, I laugh a lot. At times, my gritty side comes out. Back in the day, I used to fight and get into a lot of trouble."

"It's just literally the good and the bad of me," she added. "I love to play with it in a song. Maliibu sometimes you'll hear during the hook. One of my songs is called "Gwapamole." It's me being real soft and bubbly, my natural speaking voice. The harder, deeper voice will be Miitch. I only like to use Miitch during the verses. She gets my point across more than Maliibu does."

Though still up and coming, the rapper draws inspiration from the business regimen of moguls like 50 Cent and Lil Wayne. Who says women can't accomplish what men can?

In anticipation for her new EP, be sure to check out her interview with Ebro Darden where she talks her come up, new music, and future direction.

Mariah Carey Releases 'A No No' Remix Featuring Stefflon Don

Mariah Carey's popular track "A No No" off of her 2018 album Caution got the remix treatment. Rising MC Stefflon Don provides her infectious rhymes and flow to the cheeky diss track's updated version, which was released on Friday (Mar. 15).

“The name's Don, And they don't call me that for nothing," Stef spits on the track. "Fear ain't in my blood, I ain't scared of nothing, I take the trash out."

Fans have reportedly been clamoring for a remix to the song with Cardi B and Lil Kim, after Mimi's appearance on Watch What Happens Live last year hinted that she'd love collaborate with the two. However, the British-Jamaican rapper was the perfect addition to the track.

"Sorry no Kim, missy or Cardi im sure they all would have sounded Amazinggg on it! But this time its me aka DON!!!" tweeted Stef in response to fans.

Caution was released to rave reviews in late-2018, and Carey announced a tour to accompany it before the LP's highly-anticipated drop. The video for the song was released last week, and provided the Lambily with looks from their Queen.

Listen to the remix below.

Anderson .Paak Prepares 'Ventura' Album Release With New Single "King James"

Only four months after his recently released Oxnard album, Anderson .Paak dropped a new single to commemorate his forthcoming project, Ventura. To up the ante, his new song titled "King James" arrived early Friday morning (March 15), bringing a hard-hitting track coated in funky instrumentals and good intentions.

"King James" takes jazz-funk inspirations to a new level with the sounds of a smooth saxophone, which opens the smile-provoking 808 beat that rides under the Grammy-winning musician's voice. Covering a myriad of important topics like the looming border wall construction and black empowerment, the 33-year-old gives a shout out to LeBron James' contributions to the African American community and the NFL-kneeling movement started by Colin Kaepernick.

Though the single seems very serious, .Paak's "King James" inspires a groove with its upbeat production.

The "Tints" emcee also announced the forthcoming tracklist will include star-studded features from Brandy, André 3000, Jazmine Sullivan, Nate Dogg, and Smokey Robinson. Ventura will reach virtual streaming shelves April 12.

Ozuna And Darell Travel Through An Industrial Conquest Denouncing A Bad Love In "Vacia Sin Mi"

Gloomy cloudy skies are looming over an industrial like setting dotted with huge heavy duty trucks, as beautiful young ladies clad in yellow jumpsuits surround Ozuna in the visuals for his new single, “Vacia Sin Mi” featuring Latin trap artist Darell.

The new track is centered around the plight behind a romance gone wrong, and Ozuna is denouncing the love interest that did him wrong.  Through a hypnotic slow beat, he sings on beat about wanting nothing to do with her. He’s moved on and so should she. Darell assists the singer with brash vocals, which sound like the Spanish version of rapper Future’s signature raspy syrupy drawl.

“We want to show people a completely new concept, always looking to surprise the fans that have always supported my artistic career,” Ozuna stated in a press release.  

“Vacia Sin Mi” is the 27 year-old’s latest single off his forthcoming project NIBURU, which will be released under the record label Dimelo Vi. Just recently, the reggaeton artist made history by garnering 23 nominations for the 2019 Billboard Latin Music Awards.

We’re curious to see what new music and sound his forthcoming project will bring. Last year, he told VIBE VIVA about his previous album, Aura and what it represents for him. "Aura" is what one reflects in the heart, what you bring into the world, and what people want to learn from you,” he said. “In this situation particularly, it reflects what I have learned from fame, from all this going around my life. I interpreted all that in this album. I made international collaborations, which is something that didn’t exist in the past.”
