Yeah, Moe Green has a new EP, Lionheart, dropping this weekend. But that isn't stopping him from dropping other stuff -- including videos for songs that aren't even on the new record. Witness, then, this clip for "707": It flips a sample from the Weeknd's "Glass Table Girls" into a fist-pumping rhyme-spit about Green's hometown of Vallejo. Dig the sandwiched shots and sepia-toned scenery. And then ponder what this dude will be dropping next.

Note that "707" is the second time in recent months that Green has sampled one of these newfangled Internet-hot R&B artists. In April,

Green redid Frank Ocean's "Swim Good" into his own "Swim Great." His sampling of the Weeknd is a bit shorter and less obvious here, but it's nonetheless interesting what Green decides to use as source material.

Green is releasing a new EP, Lionheart, this Saturday. There's a release party Thursday at the Beta Lounge in Berkeley. Show up between 8 and 9 p.m., and you even get a copy of the new record for free.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
