Real T@lk "Trill Flow Pt. 2" f/ L.A. Van Gogh & Lili K (dir. Dartise)
I've been looking really forward to the final product after the teaser dropped on Monday, and just as I expected, Real T@lk delievers with a fresh concept and captivating new video that stands out amongst the rest of the sea of new videos that drop everyday.
Real T@lk and featured guests, fellow Chicago artists L.A. Van Gogh and Lili K, are figures on display in a museum... except they rhyme and sing in place. The effect is very dope, reminding me of that Ben Stiller movie A NIght At The Museum where all the exhibits come to life.
Throughout the side-scrolling video (this presentation makes it even more engaging to follow), museum patrons walk up to each artist and take photos like they were trying to document a painting or sculpture that you would normally find at a museum. The musicians also join an interpretive dancer and painter Janeen as other exhibits in the museum. Plus, the song and video go hand in hand as the soulful production and contemplative, thought-provoking raps (both emcees have some slick lines and flows, naturally) that are brought to life with a minimalist look at the artists performing them.
Download this *Tibs Fav. off Real T@lk's The Talented Tenth 8.0 (one of my favorite mixtapes in the past year so download it all) and shoutout to Real T@lk and Emmy-award winning director Dartise for executing such a unique concept and delivering a video that'll certainly grab the attention of the casual listener. Proud to kick off the day of fresh Blogs with this #GWHHPremiere — check it out!
