Whether you first heard ” Noire”(which means “black” in French) on Kyo Itachi’s “Musikyo” or got hip to it from staHHr’s “That Was You?”, you will undoubtedly enjoy the new video directed by Nick Burnz (Black Algebra) all the same. staHHr, hailing from Atlanta, joined forces with French producer Kyo Itachi ( Ruste Juxx, John Robinson, Bankai Family) to create this boom bap heavy joint. If you’re a graf enthusiast, you’ll definitely appreciate the backdrop of this video. Shot on location in Atlanta, we were fortunate to get this footage, as the building was torn down just days after the shoot.
staHHr spits an a capella of her lyrics from “Digital Daggers” on Sha Stimuli’s and the Dynamite Bruhz “The Present”. The song features staHHr, West Coast super emcee Planet Asia ( GCM, Durag Dynasty, Cali Agents) alongside Brooklyn’s own Sha Stimuli. The Present is the final installment of Sha’s monthly musical releases “The Rent Tape Series”. shot by Nick Burnz for Black Algebra Photography
Im surrounded by narcissistic rap fanatics
Time to recycle cause the earth dont do plastic
I keep it organic strike a pose like yoga
Vinyasa flow build with masters like Yida
I don’t give one iota of f@cks i keep it tucked
16 years deep still got the Midas touch
Goose with the golden eggs tina turner legs
Sister sledge hammer the track
Invincible it’s a fact
Decimating the fiction, vaping em with the diction
Standing on shoulders of jugganots, mound builders
Verb slayers, adjective and noun killers
All i spit burners, lady pink with the m-i
Ending rap careers head on collision with a semi
In my zone, scepter,.throne
Don’t even drink milk, why would i cry spilling it?
What more can i say? Top Billing it-killing it”

This brother always provides inspiration. Honest and insightful lyrics, the beat is hauntingly banging and he does most, if not all of his own production, video directing and filming. I so respect that. Brooklyn keeps on taking it!
If Hip Hop was a hurricane, then Wrath of the Siafu would be positioned somewhere in the eye of the storm. Wrath of the Siafu, the first single release off of the Organizing is the New Cool Soundtrack is a perfect example of the underlying theme of the documentary film. This thunderous anthem is an amalgamation of 11 of Atlanta’s heaviest hitting independent artists who lyrically ambush a hardcore instrumental that will leave the avid Hip Hop connoisseur begging for more! The Dynamite Bruhz produced track features a who’s who of internationally respected underground emcees including: StaHHr, Mike Flo, members of The Liuns Den and Craig “Flux” Singleton (co-producer of the film). This is a guaranteed Hip Hop Classic.
About The Siafu
The Siafu is the logo of community activists’ organization FTP Movement, an artistic representation of the Siafu Ant of Eastern Africa, a species that exemplifies the essence of teamwork. The Siafu has no eyes and no venom – only strong jaws. Individually each is small, but as a team they can strip a water buffalo down to the bone in less than an hour. FTP Movement is much like the Siafu Ant — small in size, but powerful beyond measure. For more information on FTP Movement visit http://www.Ftpmovement.ning.com
