What you see here is a new video by Buck 65, but not the proper video. Instead, it’s a collage of images and lyrics that is meant to be a way for fans to hear the song. It also serves as a trailer of sorts for the actual video, which is scheduled to premiere this weekend (March 11-14th) at Dose.ca. I generally hate trailers for videos, especially when the music video serves as the trailer by default, but as a Buck 65 fan I’ll make an exception.
Hip-hop is a good thing, I don’t have to tell you that. But good hip-hop from Hawai’i: yes! Creed Chameleon keeps on working hard and remains passionate about his music, and here’s a brand new one from him. What exactly makes this a song about groupies? You have to listen to find out.
The Milwakee, Wisconsin band are being honored in Chicago with their own burger at a metal-themed restaurant called Kuma’s Corner. Heavy metal and foodies are a great union, and in this case the Northless burger is described as consisting of a “10oz (beef) patty, caramelized onion puree, herbed garlic butter, roasted red pepper and serrano coulis, and fresh fried mint.” My friends, that’s not a double quarter pounder, but a 5/8 pounder, a mouthful of beef WITH a caramelized onion puree AND herbed garlic butter? C’mon now! But back to the music.
For this release, vinyl will be the only way to obtain it although Gilead does plan on offering it digitally about a month later. You can pre-order the double LP directly from Gilead Media. You can stream the album in its entirety by clicking over to InvisibleOranges.com.
The Art Of Rap is a documentary film that will be making the rounds this year at various film festivals. It is being presented by Ice-T, and features interviews with a number of MC’s, both known and unknown, talking about the art of what they do. I think for a new generation, that art has been lost and perhaps it’s a way for people to get familiar with what this art is about.
