Docu-Music Video: Invincible "Locusts"

Oh, this one is nice. From hip hop's Invincible. It tackles the issue of urban housing development in Detroit.

The music vid is a prelude to the narratives from community members. The project accomplishes alot in less than 7 minutes.

It was the winner of the Housing Rights Award from the Media That Matters Film Festival.

Have something to say hip hoppers, then say it. kfox.

Well, Well, Well, it's El Prezidino

I really have no idea how my name got on some hip hop distribution list, but I am getting all kinds of emails w/attachments and more info than I can digest in one setting.

As a result, it is rather random how and when I open an unknown email. An email about El Prezidino turned out to be to my liking (and I guess if I did not like it, I'd write about that as well).

But the verdict is in and I am particularly fond of "Athletes and Frat Boys" f/Daade. At first the song did not quite vibe for me ... it seemed empty and more like a novelty song, but it did not take long for it to sincerely get my attention ... there's the nice beats and good lyrics and the hook is well done.

Listen to it for yourself and check the vid too. That was a gem. Love when folks get down wit the get down!

You gotta show'em what you know hip hoppers, kfox.
