Published Jan 03, 2011A new year can mean a clean slate, but we can't help but drop another reminder of 2010 with this week's Click Hear roundup. If you think you missed some of the downloads, streams and videos that popped up over the holidays, here are some of the highlights.
First up, Kanye West's new, but unfinished, video for "Monster" (pictured), featuring fellow hip-hoppers Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj and Rick Ross, has leaked. Although, the sound and video quality are rough, you can understand enough to enjoy the work in progress. Next, Dr. Dre's Detox has seemingly sprang another leak via the track "Topless," which features Eminem and Nas.
Also recently released was M.I.A.'s mixtape Vicki Leekx, a 36-minute frenzy of rhythm and rants featuring new production work by Diplo, Switch and Blaqstarr, while Waka Flocka Flame and Gucci Mane finished off their up-and-down year with the catchy jam "This Is What I Do," featuring OJ Da Juiceman. Then there was another new Eminem track called "Syllables," which united rap royalty Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Stat Quo and Ca$his.
Finally, a rap filled roundup would not be complete without a complete U-turn toward lo-fi rock. Fist City have finally released a proper video (sort of) for "Debbie Get YR Boa." The video, created by Colin Askey, plays out like a scene from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, with puking guitar players and totem poles, six-eyed monsters, naked chicks and a unicorn.
