This is a video of Zachg as Hemol rapping as Dirty Grandpa. Dirty Grandpa is a character from some old school freestyle tapes. It was not uncommon for me to go and enter the battle under a wide variety of names and under the guise of several characters because I have always been on that shit. Watch as Dirty Grandpa battles his way to the finals and raps against Grind Time’s Madd Illz for the evening’s title. Who do you think won?

OK! This one was super duper lowkey. Even for me. I like making very straightforward videos that showcase the rapping, and not a copmlex plot, fancy effects, or expensive things that aren’t rapping or music. The magic is in the fact that we as artists are able to create such wonderful manipulations of time and space, and create engaging experiences by refining a craft. So then, why go and take the focus off the magic and put it on the artifice of the film that presents it? Teal Peace. We out here.

This is a pretty special song for me. As I’ve said before, the stuff I make is rarely topical. It’s usually just rapperly, and thus is simulataneously about everything and nothing at once. And while this song definitely still does the “everything and nothing” its basically just about rapping and skateboarding. More speficically, it’s about me dedicating my life to rapping and skateboarding and weed. More specifically, it’s about the extreme disdain I feel towards rappers who treat skateboarding as a market to capitalize on. Go fuck yourselves. This shit aint for your posin ass.

On twitter a few days ago @SteadyBloggin mentioned that I should make a Lookin Ass Rapper video. I’m not sure why I didn’t think of this sooner.

Brand new video!!!! Anotha Kinda Southern is still on schedule to release next month, and Rare Birds is the follow up record dropping later this year. This is the title track. I kept it super simple with this beat and really let the raps do their thang. It was fun making it, and I hope that this reminds people how much vitality hip hop is capable of. Plus, it showcases my killer dance moves. Watch it in full resolution.

I made this last week. Not sure how I forgot to upload it. Anyways, this is a song from the forthcoming record “Anotha Kinda Southern” (prolly out sooner than I realize). I made the video in Ableton, with footage from Photobooth. Altogether this video took roughly 15 minutes to make. I love living in 2011. There’s more videos coming. More music. Keep on it.

I’m a big fan of stuff that’s easily done, but still compelling. I hope that this compels you. I made the beat in Ableton, then recorded the raps in Ableton, then recorded the video on photobooth, then edited the video in the original Ableton song file. Sick.
