Trill Talk :: ‘They Wrong (Bruh)’ By @Mirage512

Mirage‘s journey through 2016 of bringing us the audio-visual project #TheAmeliorationCollection has been a wonderful journey to witness.  They Wrong (Bruh) marks my second involvement in the editing process, and this song is straight up hot flames.  Arson Optics comes through with a banger on production, and Mirage drops knowledage the only way he knows how.  Highly recommended viewing.


@MIRAGE512 & Chill :: Mirage512 Drops Visuals For ‘Just A Mirage’ / #TheAmeliorationCollection

I see you, Mirage512… stepping up the narrative ante on the visual front.  The thing I dig most about this video is that it is telling a story rather than focusing on the artist.  Many music videos miss out on the opportunity to leave a lasting impression by using a simple narrative structure, casting people to fit the roles, and then have the story play out with your song as the mechanism that moves things forward.  The smart ones, like Mirage512, sprinkle themselves in as an easter egg, thus maintaining the status quo of showing up in their video without taking up the majority of the frames.  Well done, sir.


Staying Power :: Mirage (@Mirage512) Drops ‘Till The End’ Video

Austin MC Mirage is continuing #TheAmeliorationCollection with the subtly powerful and moving Till The End.  Over some very solid and smooth production by Trill GatesMirage waxes poetically about the importance of longevity in the hip-hop culture, and his efforts to express that through his career and his art.  Bonus trivia: he hit me up on the edit for this one.
