“Touch what I never touched before,
See what I never seen before
Woke up and seen the Sun
Sky high, Sky high!”

staHHr, or as we affectionately refer to her “Barbarella”, hits us with round two of the Respect Due video series. This installment, she attacks the gritty Jeru the Damaja classic “Come Clean”, produced by DJ Premier. The video was shot on location in Brooklyn, NY by the talented photographer/videographer Corren Conway of F12 Films.
Pre-Order Perestroika (Bundle Packages): http://demigodzstore.bigcartel.com One of underground Hip-Hop’s most anticipated albums is about to finally see the light of day when Apathy & O.C. release ‘Perestroika’ next month. And to bring the excitement to even higher levels, the duo deliver their slick black-and-white visuals for the project’s lead single, “Soviet Official.” As you might expect, the track itself is an absolute bruiser. It’s fueled not only by Ap and O.C.’s raw and bravado-laced bars, but also boasts hard-hitting production supplied by Moss. The veteran producer put together intricately layered pitch-shifted vocals, horns, and of course some neck-snapping drums to complement the the rhyme schemes of A and O. It’s their rhymes that drive the SuaveSki-directed visuals for “Soviet Official,” as we get a first-person view of what it’s like to be on the receiving end of their punchlines. From Ap threatening to knock you out your Nikes if your laces aren’t tied, to O.C. taking on the role of John Hobbes from Fallen, this is exactly what you’d want from these two Hip-Hop kingpins. Check out the visuals and mark your calendars for the September 22nd release of ‘Perestroika,’ which is available for pre-order via download, as well as CD, vinyl and cassette formats.
