Whether the world is ready or not, Cardi B is gearing up to leave her mark on the music game once again, with her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, set for a release this Friday (April 6). To help appease the anticipation, the Bronx rapper has shared her latest music video for the track "Bartier Cardi", which shows off her lavish fashion sense and guest stars her fiancé Offset and, of course, the song's featured guest, 21 Savage.

Eminem, "Framed"

Eminem's latest visual is a quintessential offering from the Detroit rapper that is all too reminiscent of his early days when his raw storytelling helped secure his reputation as one of the greatest rappers of all time. For his track "Framed," which appears on his 2017 album Revival, Eminem takes on the role of an asylum patient who broke free, just to find himself back in the custody of authorities who end up using hypnosis on him. Needless to say, this one is action-packed and well worth the watch.

Don Q, "Head Tap" featuring Tee Grizzley

Don Q recently released his Don Talk mixtape, giving one of the tracks from the project the visual treatment. Throughout the video for the track "Head Tap," he and co-collaborator Tee Grizzley take to the streets to plan their next move. From counting money to showing off their jewelry, both artists bring the Murda Beatz-produced cut to life with ease.

Young M.A, "Praktice"

Young M.A's latest doubles as a tribute to Allen Iverson's infamous press conference rant about not attending basketball practice, with the visual's opening scene recreating the meme-worthy cultural moment. The Brooklyn rapper takes it to a basketball court to run through her bars alongside a mob of fans and a cameo from Fat Boy SSE.

Buddy, "Black" featuring A$AP Ferg

Buddy is trying something different, releasing a vertical video for his A$AP Ferg-assisted track "Black." The black and white visual shows the two trading verses over FaceTime, helping elevate the song's powerful lyricism.

Gallant, "Gentleman"

Singer-songwriter Gallant's latest, "Gentleman" was shot on 35-millimeter film by Sasha Samsonova, with the gorgeous blue-hued cinematography helping further elevate the soulful ballad. The visual is as strikingly beautiful as it is vulnerable, further reminding fans that Gallant is just beginning to tell his story, and do so as artistically as possible.

Lyric Michelle, "Free Thoughts Freestyle"

While Houston-born, Los Angeles-based MC Lyric Michelle has been keeping busy trying her hand at acting, even recently winning the Audience Choice Award at the 2018 Pan African Film Festival for her pilot For Evan's Sake, she hasn't strayed from finding time to write new music. With her upcoming album Free Thoughts on the way, Lyric's latest visual offering showcases her multifaceted talents as she raps about a variety of topics, including venting her frustration about being told as a rapper she's "nice for a female."
