Part dope hip-hop track, part location scouting for a murder, "Die Alone" is a textbook example of how to make a video that looks major label quality on an indie budget. See more...
Talent and creativity aren't exactly abundant. But there are some artists out there doing it right; case in point, Shane Eli's new "Prelude to a Kill". Just one man, one camera and some dope music.See more...
The fact that "This Week in Hype" alum Shane Eli flipped an old school afro beat song into a hip-hop banger is reason enough, but with Austin crew The League providing the rhymes new joint "Hankuri" is a certified head-nodder. See more...

Tech N9ne's "Blur" is dope, Strange Music was down, Shane Eli is dope, and boom, here we are. While the original "Blur" features a woozy and dark instrumental, Eli completely flips the script, grabbing Afro-Cuban samples to transform Tech's storytelling skills into a hip-hop version on "Hotel California".

First things first, don't worry, this isn't a "Ni**as in Paris" freestyle. Come on folks, do you really think I'd do that to you? But Shane Eli's new banger does find inspiration in Ye and Jay’s deliberate ignorance for an ode to Klonopin, Behihana binges and wrecked Bugattis. Listen and download....See more...

This is some of that aforementioned "I can fucking rap, and I can fucking rap fast" shit you're legally obligated to turn the volume up on. New single "Walking on Air" takes a beat from RefinedHype regular Shane Eli that's part rock, part gospel and part trap house and gives some instrumental fuel to lose his goddamn mind.

"When We Were Kings" was one of the better Ali documentaries ever done, and it's also one of the better tracks L.A. producer/rapper Shane Eli has ever done. So it's only right that the densely layered track gets some equally dense visuals. Watch and download...See more...
I know there are a lot of RefinedHype Nation citizens, and frequenters of the mothership, that are rappers in their own right (some of them pretty damn good), and I know rappers are always starving for dope/non-shitty beats, and I know they're too poor to pay for dope/non-shitty beats, so.....See more...
So fuck a politician, it's really still 'Us vs. Them". The latest from L.A. rapper/producer Shane Eli places some revolutionary flows over an opera-meets-hard rock beat , "Us vs. Them" is the official campaign theme song of absolutely fucking no one. (Yeah, I'm a little jaded at this point).
