The Dang Ol’ tour that Ben Buck, Cold Sweat, Jantzonia and Manny Phesto took part in recently looks like it was a blast, based solely on the feedback from the crew, and the subsequent EP release that followed. It looks like their downtime, however, was not wasted, as Ben Buck has proven with the release of the video for his Spirits single. The track, produced by Flobama of Hermit Kingdom, hearkens back to the early/mid-1990s hip-hop energy that many of my peers know and love so well, so it’s only fitting that Ben Buck would employ Diggy and Wyatt El to make a video parallel energy infused with new school editing touches. Plain and simple, this video looked like it was a blast to make, and it only strengthens the message of the track by matching the energy and spirit (no pun intended) that already existed. Definitely dope, so check it out, leave a like and a comment, and share it around for others to enjoy!

When it comes to street buzz backed up by real skill, Ben Buck has to be at the top of any list of Austin MCs you make. For the last couple of years, his hustle has been impossible to ignore, and on his latest single Spirits, we got not only a brief oral history of this experience, but a dual demonstration of growth as a recording artist and confidence in his skill level… the latter of which is ironic, as Ben Buck was never one to doubt his skills. Flobama easily matches Buck‘s energy and urgency with his production, making the testament that they will ‘break y’all’s spirits if you fake that realness’ one with real weight to it. This song has the makings of being both a mixtape and live show staple, so check it out, leave a comment, and share it around for others to get familiar with.
