Much of what I could say here, you’ve probably heard me say before, so I’ll keep it short and sweet. Next week, on Thursday Febuary 2nd, The $5 Rap Show puts on their first show of 2012 celebrating the release of not one but two brand new music videos. The first is “Heatwave” (above) which features my good friends the Backburner crew: Timbuktu, Chokeules, Wordburglar, Jesse Dangerously, Thesis, and Jay Bizzy. The video was shot for the lead single off the compilation album of the same name, released in late 2011. It’s a freaking awesome album and something you need to hear — do it on their bandcamp.
The second video is one even more near and dear to me — Wordburglar’s brand new music video for “Rhyme O’Clock.” I love this one not just because a large portion of it was shot at Rancho Relaxo — home of The $5 Rap Show — but also because over the years of SJ playing shows for me under the TWM name, and him and More or Les launching The $5 Rap Show at the venue I book, we’ve become pretty tight. It’s been ages since Wordburglar has released a new album to the masses, and this video is the precursor. However, to see this one you are going to have to actually drag your ass out to the show: http://www.facebook.com/events/115866101867243/. It will be debuting for the first time anywhere that night, Thurs Feb 2nd, at The $5 Rap Show.
