PRIDE states, “The “BAR$” video also uses Metropolitan Bar, one of the oldest gay bars in Brooklyn, as an integral setting, because representing the queer community has always been important to the out-and-proud vocalist.” The upcoming album is a conceptual project written about all the aspects of her lifelong relationship with alcohol, in conjunction with themes of empowerment, loneliness, regret and love. A seasoned vet in the nightlife industry, Corina Corina has had a love/hate relationship with her “day job” for years. “BAR$” adopts a more empowered viewpoint from previous releases, as the protagonist is exhausted and jaded but not at all a victim; she knows exactly what she’s doing, she’s a hustler and knows how to play the game. In fact, every single dollar she put into the creation of Hangover Music came from bar money.

Building a loyal legion of fans with sophisticated, spiritual, and relatable rap music, Los Angeles trio Pac Div are unsung heroes of West Coast Hip-Hop.

Flipping a psychedelic sample of 60’s classic “Never My Love” by The Association, LIKE, BeYoung, and Mibbs fall right back into the easy chemistry that propelled them to hero status in the L.A. Underground. Trading bars and interacting with the classic sample, the three rappers twist their flows in lockstep with the gauzy instrumental, dwelling on their relationships with God and engaging in Grade-A shit-talk: “So I drink holy water, say my prayers, and go to mass/But if you say something slick, I’ll slap the shit out yo’ ass.” Premiered by Complex, “First Baptist” is the opening salvo in a new chapter in the career of the acclaimed crew, while they prepare their first album since 2012’s GMB.
