Carver Commodore – ‘Tell Me What You Want (I Want It)’ New Music Video

The cause of most disagreements or arguments in my life is a lack of communication. We LOVE to hold a grudge – acting like nothing is wrong and passive aggressively doing things that show our true feelings without saying them. Pretty much this whole record was written about DOING something about your feelings/dreams/desires instead of letting them 1) burn in the background and eventually fizzle out or 2) explode like a pressure/cooked, one-sided argument you’ve been having in our own head. It’s easy to want to give up (like I did on Charles Dickens’s “Great Expectations” in the 9th grade – I HATED that book with a passion. That’s one of the few instances where I can remember giving up on something and not regretting it at all or caring about the consequences). But it’s hard to give up on a person, and there are consequences. “TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT” is what I wanted to say to myself and everyone around me. Because I WANT IT! I want you to get what you want – even if it’s just figuring out what you really need. – Payton Pruitt (Carver Commodore)

“AI YOUNGBOY 2” – which marks the long awaited follow-up to 2017’s RIAA gold certified “AI YOUNGBOY” – includes the hit singles, “Self Control” and “Slime Mentality,” both of which are joined by companion visuals streaming now via YouTube. Originally found on YoungBoy’s recently released single-bundle, “THE CONTINUANCE,” the two tracks each earned critical acclaim upon their recent releases, with HYPEBEAST praising the former for “(showcasing) the rapper’s more introspective and reflective side. Throughout ‘Self Control,’ the 19-year-old Baton Rouge superstar uses his melodic flows to reveal how he dealt with loved ones losing their lives, the temptations of substance abuse and more.” Meanwhile, HotNewHipHop hailed “Slime Mentality” as “a gritty cut that falls directly in line with the sort of vibes NBA YoungBoy has been dropping for the last twelve months. There is something about this kid that just screams consistency and it’s what has his fans going crazy whenever he decides to grace us with new music.”
