Baltimore-bred, Los Angeles-based emcee E Major presents the self-directed music video to “Outrageous”, the 3rd leak from his upcoming album Baltimore Bruin. Coming on the heels of his videos for “Feature Presentation” (watch here) and “Zodiac Freestyle” (watch here), “Outrageous” utilizes “Movie Finale,” a beat by California producer Madlib which appeared on his Beat Konducta In India project and was also used by Mos Def for his song “Auditorium.” “My wife’s family is from India and I’ve been there three times,” says E of the video. “It was just the perfect thing to shoot while on one of my trips there. I was able to rope a bunch of family members into helping me out and we hired the auto rickshaw driver and we went guerrilla style around the city of Cochin. The video is more about the feeling of the track than any of the content. I was trying to capture what it’s like to be in a totally different world like India.”

Considering that I only post music, videos, art, etc… from people I know personally or that I work with, it’s pretty cool to post a photo of Mos Def on our blog. Our homie from the West Coast, Michael Sterling Eaton who has gained a following due to his photography and video work, much of it with the very popular Creative Control, is releasing an album that features Mos among other including the Cool Kids, Curren$y and more. And don’t trip. Michael is not new to the music element. He’s been busy making tracks for years.
I HAD to post this. TOO ill. You might remember I posted about our friend Michael Sterling Eaton a while back regarding his film Friday the 13th with Mos Def and The Cool Kids. Well it appears that he has parlayed that into a feature from Mos and The Cool Kids on his upcoming album The Mictape Vol. 1. The album also features music Curren$y, Ernie Gaines, Scoop Deville, Stalley and many more. This is the first offering from the project. The song is called “White Drapes” and it features Mos going in on one long verse and really sounding like a fresh MC again. Be on the look out for The Mictape Vol. 1 coming soon.
