Building Breakdowns :: AKAdemics Represent CHHK With ‘Creation Of Destruction’ Music Video

Over the last few years, the Austin-based collective College of Hip Hop Knowledge has provided an arena for upcoming creatives to build with one another and hone their energies/skills into productive output.  Most recently, CHHK has birthed the group AKAdemics, comprised of members Big Mic, Jsun the Prophesor, and DJ Berlin.  Their latest single and video, Creation of Destruction, is an honest look at how America tends to be the master of their own negative destiny, glorifying the things that they shun at breakneck intervals.  The newreel footage blends seamlessly with the original images captured for the video, resulting in a very informed piece of work with visual and informational replay value.  Definitely support these guys and their efforts, as they are trying to make positive change on multiple levels.
