I submitted for HitRecord’s Freestyle Something. The topic they chose for this beat was “secrets.” I chose to focus on some current issues and to dissect the difference between a lie and a secret.

I’ve really been slacking on posting to the blog and I apologize. I have new music recorded and this is actually the first year since 2008 that I haven’t released an album or a mixtape, but I’ve been working overtime on getting my first short film made. If you haven’t been keeping track, it’s called Hit the Hitman. The above video is from a couple of weeks ago, right after we made out Kickstarter goal.
Making a movie, even a short film is really fucking involved. You have to plan and pick out everything, from the dishes to the music and everything in between. It is possible to just show up someplace and start shooting, but the type of film I want to make which involves creating a world unto itself, means that I have to look at and make a call on the smallest thing, like should we get a costume hemmed or what kind of lighting should we have for the scene. It’s kind of crazy but I’ve actually really been enjoying it.
Here’s some new visuals for yet another video from Baltimore Bruin. The video uses a different version of the song than is on the mixtape, with 2 verses from me. I think it’s pretty straight forward. We’re rapping about some 90’s shit so I wanted to show some of what we’re rapping about. Check it out and let me know what you think.
Also, check out a little something I wrote for DaWhat.com about what Hip Hop means to me. And don’t forget to listen to cop Baltimore Bruin right now!
