Here’s Brandon and I’s latest Black Hoodie Rap music video. We’re very proud of this, as this is what we think a music video should look like. If you want to read more about the concept, go check out the entry on the BHR site.
(Side note: Just graduated from Northeastern a few weeks ago and am slowly getting settled into Brooklyn. As anyone who frequents this site knows, the best way to stay in touch is through the BHR blog, or here. I’ll be back here in full effect soon.)
Last week, we sat down with Nick Mendez, a good friend of mine and recent graduate of Northeastern’s journalism program. He maintains a blog called Take Witness that chronicles/showcases his very creative approach to journalism.
During the course of the two days we spent with him, we did a full photo shoot, podcast, and interview for the actual written piece itself. Aside from the content being about something I’m involved in, I can’t tell you how impressed I was at Nick’s approach to writing about a music group. This is the type of journalism that will keep entertainment journalism alive, and fully utilizes everything great new media has to offer.
You can find the Podcast on iTunes by search “Take Witness” in the iTunes Store. Or simply check out the full feature at Take Witness by clicking here.
Since October 27, Brandon and I have been relentlessly promoting our mixtape/project For Rent, while finding new opportunities in music as well. Unfortunately, this slowed down our old pace of writing new songs.
B came up to Boston for the week with the mission of specifically locking-in and making new tracks. And that’s what we’re doing. That’s me diligently working…
Our friend Nick Mendez also stopped by our session last night to interview us for his site, Take Witness. There’ll be a whole feature there on us sometime next week. I’ll be sure to let you all know about that when it goes up. We discussed everything from making music, to Tom Brokaw’s comments that he can’t understand hip-hop, but his belief that it’s huge part of our culture.
And if you’re wondering why I put the word “studio” in quotes… well if you look hard enough, it’s not a “studio,” it’s just my room. That’s where most music gets made anyway. Recording is another story…
