Rhythmic Recollections :: SniperShot Releases New Video For ‘Life Is Crazy’ Single

From the digital desk of SniperShot

“This is a heartfelt song about some of the things I have had to deal with in my life.  I go through the whole range of emotions in this video.  From sadness, to anger, to chaos, to numbness, to acceptance, to enlightenment.  What can I say…This Life Is Crazy! 🌀 #RIPDAD

We all know that SniperShot has the skill to be incredibly entertaining and compelling in equal measure, and for Life Is Crazy, he tapped the assistance of producer Symbolyc One and video team RSNL Media, not to mention a mix and master job by Matt Kennedy.  Check out the video, leave a like and a comment if you feel moved to do so, and spread it around far and wide!

Quiet Place :: Marshall Anderson Taps Jeffrey Garcia For ‘Mermaids’ Video

Marshall Anderson just hit us with another beautiful tune, and this time around, he tapped Jeffrey Garcia‘s creative energy to create a memorable and era-blurring video.  Mermaids, when taken on its own, is a dynamic song with layered guitars, a shuffling but catchy drum performance and a ton of subtle harmony, all courtesy of Marshall Anderson and company, so in order to match the timeless feeling of the song, Jeffrey Garcia went with a VHS-based video, resulting in a look that is unique to current aesthetics, but definitely reminiscent of a few generations passed.  Definitely take some time to check this one out, leave a like and a comment if you feel it, and share it around so everyone can enjoy!

Natural Flow :: Perseph One Drops Single And Video For ‘Nurture Nature’

It feels like it’s been a minute since I heard from Perseph One, but perhaps I’ve been slipping… for years, the Houston-based MC pushed the limits of lyricism, abstract symbolism and personal expression, and Nurture Nature seems to be a continuation of all these qualities that made Perseph a household name among fans and other MCs alike.  The track is a little less noise-rap that I’m used to hearing her on, but that doesn’t change the fact that it works well for her, or that she’s still locked in lyrically.  If you’ve not yet heard of Perseph One, or it’s been a while since you’ve heard her get down, then check out this track, leave a like and a comment, and spread the word!

Fact Checking :: MAGNA CARDA Drops New Video For ‘PROPAGANDA’

Dope new video from the Austin-based duo Magna Carda… they’re always grinding, always looking out for the greater community, and first and foremost, always making sure that the music they drop is moving and powerful.  PROPAGANDA finds them focusing in on the foundationless flexing of others while being sure to reaffirm their deep dedication to securing the most for themselves and keeping their craft held in high regard.  If you dig the video, leave a like and a comment, and share it around for all to do the same.

Summertime Sadness :: Chris Conde Taps Ceschi For ‘The Summer Of Our Discontent’ Video And Single

Engulfed in the Marvelous Decay, the upcoming Chris Conde release from Fake Four Inc., drops this upcoming Sunday, and with Conde doing the work in terms of promotional rollout, it makes sense that his third (and seemingly final prerelease) single would feature a guest appearance from the always stellar and compelling Fake Four label-head and foundational artist Ceschi.  Over a very somber and spacious beat, Conde and Ceschi open up their minds and hearts about attempting to stay motivated and creative in a world that gives us reasons to believe otherwise.  The Summer of Our Discontent could soundtrack these bleak and uncertain times we’ve been navigating through lately, so if you feel like you could use a sonic remedy, check out the video, leave a like and a comment, and spread it around for all to take in.

Scary Hours :: Mad1ne And Blazy Green Tap Johnny Depp For ‘Castaways’ Video

Mad1ne is continuing his prolific 20202021 run, and it seems like it’s only gaining momentum at the moment, meaning things are probably just getting really and truly going.  Mad1ne and Blazy Green hit up Johnny Depp for some guest bars on Castaways, the latest single and video from Dark Side Of Jupiter.  The track is dope, featuring a beat switch halfway through and bars all around, and the video not only features everyone tapped for the track, but a guest appearance from the homie Ruler Why as well.  Definitely check it out, leave a like and a comment, and share it around so everyone can dig it.

Best Medicine :: Ratarue Releases New Video For ‘Time Heals A Broken Heart’

Ratarue recently hit me up to let me know that his latest single from Legend of the Gatling Tongue, the somber headnodder Time Heals a Broken Heart, had just been given the video treatment, but honestly, I had no idea I was about to get hit with something so artistic.  The song is dope by its own merits, with the slightly off-kilter and dark beat matching the despondency of what would be an otherwise positive message likely skewed due to repeat negative experiences.  Therefore, it makes sense that the video would be an artistic, expertly crafted piece of visual stimulus thanks to the efforts of Andi AveryKate E. Hinshaw and their entire production crew.  Hopefully this video gets the numbers run up, and if an opportunity to submit it to festivals arises, I would highly recommend that Ratarue and company do so, as they may be pleasantly surprised by the potential outcome.

Trippy Trap :: Ken Casio Drops Another Mind Scrambling Video With ‘BallinOuttaControl’

Ken Casio and Jeffrey Garcia have found themselves a winning formula, and it doesn’t look like they have plans to abandon it at any point in the near future.  Their latest collaboration, the upbeat BallinOuttaControl, uses the same psychedelic Tim & Eric, Awesome Show, Great Job! approach they’ve used in previous videos, and you know what they say… if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.  The visuals match the energy put forth by Ken Casio and the Popstar Benny Baredex production, with every element jumping off the screen and at your eyeballs with warp speed and reckless abandon.  Dig the video, leave a like and a comment if you’re feeling it, and share it around to make it viral!

Survivor Sacrifices :: Clemits Continues Honoring MF DOOM Via Video With ‘CLEM F DOOM’

Austin-based MC and producer Clemits is keeping the remembrance of fallen hip-hop icon MF DOOM alive and well as he continues to share singles and videos from his dedication mixtape CLEM F DOOM.  This time around, he’s hit viewers with the single that shares its name with the project, and it’s a fitting parallel, as the single not only shows honor and respect to DOOM, but it also allows Clemits to express his ability to persevere in all of the madness that life lays out in front of us.  Mad props to the homie Clemits for being so respectful and honest in this venture, where many nowadays would sadly choose to exploit the passing of a man who meant so much to hip-hop.  If you’re feeling what Clemits is putting down, leave a like and a comment, and share it around for the rest of us hip-hop lovers still recovering.
