Big Sean has dropped the visuals for his track Hometown. In the track, taken from his Finally Famous Vol.3 mixtape, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper samples Adele’s beautiful song Hometown Glory and we can safely say he did it justice.

Follow Big Sean on his journey back to his native Detroit where he performs in front of a sold-out crowd, visits a local radio station and signs an autograph or two on the way.

In the lead up to the Dubstep Takeover, Radio 1 have been playing dubstep remixes of Christmas tunes. SME were loving it and there we’re some bangers in there but none of which come close to what our boy Trufix and Thunderskank have just put out! It’s a madness!

They’ve sampled the everyone’s favourite (don’t argue!) Christmas film ‘Home Alone’ and snowed it under with heavy sub bass at 140bpm.

SME will be dissapointed with every set we hear from now until 25th December if it doesn’t include this banger. So DJ’s, there’s no excuses it’s a FREE 320kbps so go download it NOW! (Arrow in the player above)

“Merry Christmas ya filthy animal…and a Happy New Year!”
