Mic Kellogg released his first music video recently for the track By 3, off his debut project, Breakfast. The visuals are handled by Cody LaPlant and Damien Blue, two directors that have been gaining a lot of notoriety for their videos. The track itself has a fun, summery vibe to it, and the video matches that vibe perfectly. Mic Kellogg is seen hanging out with his friends at a zoo, grabbing some breakfast at a cafe, and the best visual has to be him laying in bed as the bed glides down this road through the forest. If you haven’t heard his project, Breakfast, make sure to check that out as well.

Philly phenom Dotcomm has a new track that’s hitting hard right now. The video is called “Who Can I Run 2″ and showcases his talents as an artist while dropping some creative wordplay. We’re suckers here for soul beats and this one has a typical NY 90s sound. The video features imagery of a young Dotcomm, rapping in the schoolyard and takes you back in time to when real lyricism occurred and beats were tight. Overall this is a solid music video to a track that can be enjoyed over and over again.
