Video Premiere: Steff Reed Takes A "Stand" In Self-Awareness And Strength In Unity

Some artists have to announce that they are artists, be they music or visual art producers. But that wasn't the case when Steff Reed visited our office in June of 2018. He and his rapping homie Dupree G.O.D (formerly known as Word Spit of America's Got Talent success fame) come through our doors looking like the stars they are. Both did an incredible live performance of Dupree's newest song at the time, "Take Me Away," acoustic style. With Dupree on the vicious vocals and Reed on the guitar, the pair gave us an energetic but soulful performance.

Fast forward to now, and Steff Reed is releasing his newest video for the song, "Stand" off his The Power of Love Experience EP. Being one to have worked with the best in the music biz, Reed has songwriting and production credits with Swizz Beatz, Jhene Aiko and so many more that have shaped his acute style of free spirit and socially ground sounds.

"Stand inspired me to express resistance in a very symbolic way," says Reed. "I wanted to show that even though we all have our own personal battles we are stronger when we are united and we should fight in the war together." Strong words from a gentle and loving soul. Watch the video, then listen to the EP below.

Premiere: Lambo Anlo Praises Women Hustlers In 'Blac Chyna' Video

Stripper-turned-entrepreneur Blac Chyna is one of the more polarizing figures in black music and reality TV, but Washington DC artist Lambo Anlo pays homage to her in his new video.

On "Blac Chyna," Lambo uses melodic rhymes to tell the story of a woman who uses her hustle, her beauty and her body to go from "section 8 to a palace." He speaks from a place of admiration for her focus, and the visual is a one shot video that shows him playing piano as the backdrop for a crew of gorgeous women of different complexions.

"It's the story of a female who grew up in an impoverished environment, taking any step she can to get where she wants to be in life," Lambo Anlo told VIBE. "For the video, we wanted to showcase the various cultures and races of women that go through this same struggle."

"I wanted to make an intimate video that juxtaposes two different types of people in more of a veiled style than what's traditionally expected," director Dillon Dowdell told VIBE.

Yazid Britt, director for creative services and marketing at Rostrum Records, noted that instead of simply casting a lookalike of the song's namesake as the lead, they wanted to go deeper and connect with viewers.

"It was an easy suggestion to just place a literal version of Blac Chyna as the female lead, but in many cases people see themselves through celebrities and that's what we set out with director Dillon Dowdell. There is a Blac Chyna in every culture.”
