Isaiah Rashad loves to cook. In a recent interview with HNHH, he spoke on how he has gained cooking wisdom over time, his love of Southern food, and his specialties. "I can cook really good. I don't want say nothing because it's gonna all sound real stereotypical. I'm good at frying chicken," he said. He revealed that he also specializes in okra, fried tomatoes, tilapia, and halibut.

Isaiah Rashad says he wants to piss on a rapper (hmm, that reminds me of something), and after seeing this music video, we're not gonna stop him. Riding in a hazy yet comfy-looking vehicle, Rashad gets wavy as the Mystery Machine with a bad ting blowing smoke in the front seat. The visuals are definitely aesthetically pleasing, and the content's simplicity allows for the viewer to zone in on the rapper's insanely dope long-form verse.

For the visual treatment, Isaiah Rashad heads to the boardwalk with a little boy, possibly his son IRL. The two have fun with little-to-no money in their pockets, as we see dollar amounts above the heads of the various people on the boardwalk-- perhaps an indication as to what's in their pockets. Isaiah Rashad is good though, as long as he can pay his bills, he seems to want for nothing.

Kevin Gates Feat. Vic Mensa, August Alsina, Isaiah Rashad & Chance The Rapper
XXL has finished the roll out of individual cyphers for each rapper on this year's XXL Freshmen list, and with that we get the first group cypher. The first cypher has Kevin Gates, Vic Mensa, August Alsina, Isaiah Rashad and Chance The Rapper. Gates kicks things off with a dope verse, and August Alsina provides a nice r'n'b break not once, but twice, making it act more like a hook on a record rather than your typical cypher. We could definitely use the MP3 for this. Who had the best bars in the group? Stay tuned for more group cyphers from the remaining freshmen.
