Who loves ya, eh? Maclane and myself, that’s who. Here’s two songs we’ve put together that won’t be on VVV but nonetheless we want you to enjoy. I’m about to hop on a plane half way around the globe to Thailand for a few months to train Muay Thai, write the rest of VVV, and hug a tiger. Wanted to give yall something before I go as appreciation for your patience. Follow me and my travels with the links below.
The official video for “The Worst” off the FREE digital album “Be Brave, Gladiator”. The Video was written by yours truly and inspired from my impassioned love for Horror cinema. Don’t be surprised if you see more nods to this genre from me in the future. The video features the beautiful and stunning Charmaine Olivia who is also an incredible artist. I urge you to go to www.charmaineolivia.com after you watch and see for yourself. Shot and directed by Trevor Traynor. Total honor to work with this talented dude, go check out his resume (crazy) www.trevortraynor.com. Edited by the Rec League El Hefe Mr. Rob Rush. Major shout out and love to the homie Ashkon for the location. Hope you enjoy. Fun behind the scenes fact, that’s really my blood at the end (don’t play with knives, m’kay?).
Love it, like it, indifferent, or hate it, I appreciate the time to listen. Today’s unrelenting assault of multimedia every which way you turn really takes a toll on one’s attention span, myself included, so the opportunity to have an audience for these sounds and musings is worth its weight in gold.
Those of you who are new around these parts won’t necessarily understand this next sentiment as others will, but bare with me here. I don’t have any sort of esoteric meaning for what “Be Brave, Gladiator” is about, all I can truthfully say is that it’s inception is part impulse and part appreciation. There’s a small few, during my subsequent absence from music who have continually checked for and encouraged new material as well sent their own appreciation for previous works of mine, so I wanted to express my gratitude with a free album. Not a mixtape, not a collection of album scraps, and nothing half hearted. I already had a different full length project already recorded (coming soon) before I decided to create this album, but I wanted my first new release to be free and something for you and me to kick off the new year. The album is entirely self produced except for one track by my incredibly talented friend The LMNtylst, you can expect a lot more work between us in the future. So here it is, a big huge thank you to everybody, old and new faces alike, I hope you dig it.
If I can though, the only thing I ask is that if you like it and feel it’s worth sharing then please send the link to someone you think may feel the same. Trying to spread the word. Stay tuned for new things, they are coming.
Here’s another track from out the vaults. From time to time it’s just good old fashion fun to get back to the more unfriendly and combative side of rap. If you dig this and haven’t downloaded my free mixtape “Whatever You’re On I’ll Take 2“ then have at it, its full of all sorts of antagonistic good times.
Roughly 25 pots of coffee later, which we’re going to go ahead and call a valid and scientific measurement of time, comes the brand new visuals for the song Don’t Wake The Babies. This is the first video off the upcoming album Be Brave, Gladiator which will be available for free (say what?!) digital download January 1st, 2012. Written, Co-Directed, and edited by yours truly.
I hope you dig it. Tell a friend. Or a million, that’s totally cool with me.
What started off as a joke turned into a pretty magical little song with me and fellow crew members Richie Cunning and Q’m. Shitty Keyboard? check. Swingers DVD? check. Raps? Rec. “So Money” for free download plus many more from my Rec League familia over www.routinefly.com because we luh you like that.
