We’re apparently only weeks away from the much-anticipated release of John Crown’s Coffee and Beats…that’s right, just a few sleeps and wake-ups away! Until then, Tha Deacon is tiding us over with a new video for a classic JC joint. I’ll let him explain:
I put this track on a mixtape before I knew John, because I thought it was dope. I didn't honestly even know he was from Tacoma, or lived there. He heard the mixtape at a mutual friends' house, and my buddy got us in touch. Nothing too big... did I think it'd turn into this a year and a half later? Absolutely not. I believe things happen for a reason, and this is a song that still resonates with me, which is why I wanted to shoot a video for it. Not sure if everybody will pick up the style of the video, but where we have so many talented videographers locally doing all kinds of dope videos, I attempted to pay homage to my youth.
Love the song, love the story…peep:
