Austin-based director Fum Fum Ko‘s long awaited film collaboration with blakchyl and chiclopz of Mindz of a Different Kind (MDK) is now available and streaming on Facebook. No Sleep No Breaks is a heartfelt story of two creative spirits excited about an opportunity to document their art, and the anticipation of this opportunity. The film is set against the backdrop of East Austin (mostly), showcasing an area of the town that does not get the love it deserves. Definitely give the film a like and a share, check it out, and let Fum Fum Ko know what you think about it!

Those in tune to the Austin hip-hop scene are well aware of MDK (Mindz of a Different Kind) and all the moves they’ve been making over the years. Blackchyl and Chiclopz have teamed up with Fum Fum KO productions in an effort to express the essence of what they’ve been doing in the form of a short film. No Sleep No Breaks, from the looks of it, may serve to be an honest look at what it’s like to devote your heart and soul to the culture while still struggling to maintain from day to day throughout the worldy madness and obstacles. This is one that I am very much excited about, and hopeful that it gets the attention it seems to deserve upon release.

Mindz of a Different Kind (MDK) started off as a powerhouse of a crew.. four extremely talented MCs who pooled their collective resources and vision to form a united front. Time, however, has revealed new things out of this union.. a strong sense of self-respect from each member, as well as an obvious mutual respect among the collective.. a growth in the confidence and the content of their material.. a visual aesthetic that promotes growth and ideas while being reflective of days past.. All I Know, the lead single from the recent EP release Borderlinez, encompasses all of these things brilliantly. Word on the street is that there’s a short film in the works.. be on the lookout for No Sleep No Breaks when it drops.. I know I’ll be.
