Najji Xantana makes his first appearance on the Graduation Music site today with the official music video for “Pacino”.
“Pacino” is a mesmerizing offering that takes its influence from Al Pacino’s Tony Montana character in Scarface. Full of boisterous, braggadocios bars that are delivered in a truly otherworldly fashion — “Pacino” is a highly addictive release that’ll have listeners continuously coming back for more. Whether it’s your first time listening to the song or you’re 100th, “Pacino” seemingly never loses its touch and hits every single time.
Both Ryan Joaquin and Imani Pina put their best foot forward here in order add an additional layer of lovability to “Pacino”, with this release being Najji Xantana’s first official music video. Yet another example of the plethora of talent currently present within the state of Massachusetts, show Najji Xantana some love as I’m sure this won’t be the last time that we hear from him.

After teasing the brand new song and video on social media last week — FAbzabove finally unleashed “Hitstick” (Prod. BROKECH1C) via ELEVATOR yesterday. Directed by whenevertheweather, the mesmerizing visual does an exceptional job at capturing the thunderous, exuberant feeling that can be derived throughout the entirety of this track.
FAbzabove has been showcasing an incredible amount of development within his discography over the course of the last year. He’s been busy up to this point in 2019 — releasing “The Rush”, landing placement on King Kade’s EP Grow Up, Go Love Something, and performing alongside Bia, Leano, and more at the Middle East. Showing no signs of stopping, make sure you keep FAbzabove on your radar this year.

Connis and BT Livin bring their minds together in order to forge some eye-catching visuals for the first single off of Connis’ upcoming project, Conn(is). Graduation Music premiered this flawless track back in April of 2018, so we’re delighted to see that it has finally received a video treatment.
“Spent” circulates around the feeling that we obtain following periods of stagnancy. Connis reiterates, “I spent way too long, waiting on nothing / I can’t take it no more, gotta get something”, throughout this track, and it shines a light on how overbearing reflection can be for us at times. While we can’t change what’s already happened in our lives, sometimes we can get buried with the ideas of what could have been had we acted differently. In Connis’ example, he’s weighed down by the thoughts of how he could’ve moved differently to better prepare himself for reaching his goals.
As the song progresses, the tempo shifts towards a faster pace, and Connis details how he’s beginning to bounce back from the mistakes he’s made. With a new perspective on how he should operate and an assessment of what’s truly valuable in his life, he’s prepared to launch himself towards the completion of his dreams. He ends the track with, “How is change gon’ come, if I don’t change something?”, coming to the realization that the changes he makes in his own life will ultimately be what end up changing his life for the better.
As usual, BT Livin did a wondrous job injecting a newfound energy into this track, and viewers everywhere should certainly be watching this in order to prepare themselves for the release of Conn(is). A living example of how much talent is present within the depths of Cambridge, Connis is ready to take over.
Treehouse Audio was one of the most potent releases to come out of Massachusetts in several years, with Jack Karowak and company working tirelessly in order to push out the well-hammered album. “Medicine” ended up being one of the first tracks off of the project to really resonate with me, so I was thrilled to find out that it was next in-line for a visual treatment. Recruiting Xandros to help bring his vision to life, the pair hit it out-of-the-park with this one.
The meaning of “Medicine” lies within the realization that we all need to settle down a bit in order to set our minds straight. Jack paints scenes of rushing towards our goals to the point where we lose sight of what we’ve been working towards to begin with. Once we sit-back and take a moment to maintain our perception of things, we can then move correctly. A beautiful song that’s accompanied by an equally beautiful video, “Medicine” is certainly a highlight within Jack Karowak’s discography.
