Van Buren Records is slowly becoming our favorite rap collective at the moment. Unlike the groups of the past, they are all on one accord. They also seem to all bring an equal amount of firepower. Moreover, as soon as one voice stops, another picks up with the same amount of vigor as the last. Their new EP Black Wall Street is an ode to the once-booming Greenwood District of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Unfortunately, that goes uncovered by many classroom textbooks. Like them, VB has achieved success by themselves, on their terms.

The follow-up to April’s Bad For Press full-length includes a rare guest in the circle, Jazz Cartier. The LA-by-way-of-Toronto star appears on “CULT,” a music video arriving with the EP. In a mansion with some devoted followers, Van Buren Records’ SAINT LYORLuke Bar$InvadaFELIX! and Jazz Cartier concoct nod-inducing elixirs, trance, and watch footage of other famous cult leaders, all in between conjuring lyricism and a hypnotizing beat. The Van Buren Records camp continues to offer a highly stylized, quite compelling audio-visual lean-back experience.

Van Buren Records Can Break The Mold

Hailing from Brockton, Massachusetts, the first majority Black city in New England, Van Buren Records boasts a cohesive sound that has catalyzed mosh pits across their home state and beyond, igniting a new phase in the greater Boston area Hip-Hop renaissance and creative community at large. Receiving critical praise from Pigeons & Planes (Best New Artists of April), NPR (“Favorite Albums Of 2021” list), Lyrical Lemonade, and UPROXX, as well as an Instagram story cosign from Brent FaiyazVB is commanding 2021 with a Bad For Press full-length album and now, a fresh, follow-up Black Wall Street EP. They’ll be performing songs from both releases next month at select dates in Los Angeles, NYC, and Boston – listed below. 

Take a look at the new video here today!
