Manifesting Visions :: Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice Drops ‘LANIE’, A New Short Film

In my never-ending quest to express my creative drive and desires in as many ways as possible, I have released a new short film.  LANIE is the story of a young woman making a mid-travel stop at an air b&b location, only to discover that the location holds much more in store than she could ever imagine or bargain for.  Making this one was a blast, as Moira McCulloch and Colton Ferguson delivered wonderfully strong performances, and the homegirl K Death was gracious enough to allow me to use some of her older tunes as score material.  My short films and music videos generally don’t do major numbers, but the reception to this one has been a joy to behold, so if you find the time, please check it out, leave a like and a comment, and share it around for others to experience.

Upward Movement :: Moodie Black Preps ‘Fuzz’ Release With ‘Jesus Bound’ Video Premier on Dead End Hip Hop

Moodie Black is about to knock the dust off of 2020, and if Jesus Bound (the first single from their upcoming Fake Four release Fuzz) is any indication, their going to do it with a sense of urgency and immediacy that the era has not only created, but demands.  K is no stranger to confrontation, and with hip-hop already being a firestorm of a breeding ground for transforming turmoil into art, it comes as no surprise to me that Jesus Bound plays as her unapologetic clapback to all the real-life and social media misgendering and misidentification of her art.  Add to that her penchant for stark and striking visuals, and it makes sense that Dead End Hip Hop would jump at the opportunity to premier the video, hopefully allowing avenues of discussion to open up as a result.  I’ll be ready for when Fuzz drops at the end of March, and if you’re smart, you’ll keep your eyes and ears open as well.

Joyful Noise :: Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice Drops Audio-Visual For ‘The Limit Is Mythic’

It feels good starting off 2020 on the right foot.  After a collaborative year with K Death of the iconic duo Moodie Black (a year in which she produced projects for several underground Texas juggernauts), I am happy to announce the release of Panic Ruminations on January 24.  In order to properly support the roll-out, I hooked up with the homie Jeffrey Garcia from the Dream-Atomic camp, and he helped me capture footage for the limit is mythic, the lead single from the upcoming project.  Check it out, leave a like and a comment, share it around so we can get those view counts up, and stay tuned for the release of the full project.
