What’s up people.
I just realized i have yet to promote my own video on my blog! WWE should be paying me for the amount of promo i’ve done for them.
So before my mixtape launch, we selected “Shit like this,” for the video we wanted to shoot. I knew the mixtape would be hard to translate into visuals since the material was not very focused in terms of subject matter and the tape was meant to capture specific emotions and a specific state of mind for the most part. Making a video for a track with a clear-cut direction is much easier if you ask me.
We brainstormed (when i say we i mean, P Storm, Swerte, Dj Flash B, Hirabeat, Jabbar, and Maysam) a little and came up with a few ideas for different shots that would keep the video entertaining and figured out how we were going to do it for the most part. A lot of the ideas were eventually scrapped for a number of reasons which i would not want to bore you with.
The first shoot was actually the last part of the video, THE BBQ. Epic evening that left one dude with a bruised face and a very drunk Kaz. I’m not sure if you can tell in the video but if you look at my eyes during the BBQ shots you may notice that glassy-eyed thing i had going. That was courtesy of beer, whiskey and 1 single shot of absinthe that left me absent-minded. I feel bad for Maysam having to edit my slurry delivery that night hahaha
The rest of the video was shot over a period of 1 night and 1 day a week after the BBQ part. I had to keep that beard for a week and try to keep it looking as fucked up as ever. BTW, rocking that thick beard was something i really wanted to do to move as far away from my previous work as possible, both musically and image wise. If you had the unfortunate luck to hear my older material you would know how mislead i was when i first started recording. Time teaches even the dumbest student the hardest lessons.
Anyway, i am very proud of the end result and i believe we achieved what we intended to with the video. I always knew i would get a lot of heat for it and i welcome all critics to leave their constructive criticism in the comments section, and if they don’t like it, suck my dick.
Shoutout to Maysam and to all The Recipe for making that shit happen.
Now enjoy my shit:
