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:

This will not be a music video, not as people know music videos, especially as our region is concerned...This will be a work of art. Much like how we craft our songs and perform them live, with great care and consideration from an artistic perspective. I dont know if that is a viable 'sell point' to our audiences in trying to procure funds for making the video, but it is definitely one of the standout elements that WILL make it popular after people see it.
One of my hopes for the outcome of this video is to help set the Theoretics project apart from its regional hip hop brethren and affiliates... in the sense that it would help distinguish it as a different breed. Less concerned with following footsteps or appeal and more concerned with blessing people with music/videos/performances that reflect a much more refined artsy and well thought out approach to the genre.

The second is a dope little animated joint from The Physics. The video is for "Delusions of Grandeur" from their dope new release Love Is A Business. This joint also features the very talented Mario and Malice Sweet on vocals.

Well, after a lot more time, money, called-in favors, vodka sodas, calories, Fireball, children, and miles of wear and tear than any of us expected (did he say “children?”), we finally wrapped up work on the long-awaited video for LaRue’s “Rise Up”. Let me just tell you, it was worth every last dime, every hangover, every extra pound…maybe not that last one – anyway, the end result is something we’re pretty proud of – biased or not. Without further ado, peep:
So many people to thank for all of their help on this AYCE/rumbl. media production, but you all know who you are. If not, there’s a reason we didn’t thank you. Dick.

I know, I know…THREE. FUCKING. POSTS. IN. ONE. DAY. HOLYSHITTHISGUYISCRAZY!
Actually, I’m just getting amped for a little shindig happening one week from today: The Hurricane LaRue release party on September 9th at Chop Suey. Not only am I really looking forward to the musical return from Florida of Seattle’s own Saturn Rising MC, but it will also be the debut of a little diddy we done did for Mr. LaRue.
You see, I sit here behind the comfy confines of my keyboard, and pass judgment on all of the “Official Music Video”s that come across the inbox (just ‘cause it’s a video don’t make it official…jus’ sayin’). Can’t help it, fam, it’s kinda my day job. But, I joined forces with my dude Rich Phelps, and we actually put our money where our mouths are; next Friday’s show will also be the debut of the “Official Music Video” for LaRue’s “Rise Up".
So, not only should everyone come out to support the release of Hurricane LaRue, you should also come do some judging of your own. It’s cool…I deserve it. But until then, you’ll only be able to look disapprovingly upon the promo - peep:
Jam-packed with all the rapid-fire, lyrical-lasers you could ask for, Mo’ Retro is another mixtape-mixture of new content and new takes on classic beats, and it’s definitely worth the easy motion of a mouse click. Seriously, don’t be lazy. Really looking forward to the release of May’s first LP, A Beautiful Mind, but this will definitely hold me over until that time.
Mayhem – Early May 3: Mo’ Retro
Man…time to blow the dust off this here blog! Got this in the inbox a few days ago (or maybe a week, if you wanna be a dick about it), but finally have a chance to post it up: the man, the myth, the soon-to-be legend, John Crown is getting ever closer to dropping the long-awaited Coffee and Beats! That’s right, Tacoma’s top consumer of Black and Milds is apparently almost finished, as alluded to by the “Fall 2011” title slate at the end of this dope lil’ promo, peep:
