If you’ve followed my blog at all these last 2 years you’re probably familiar with MC DIATRIBE. We put out an album over the winter called Know Love & Loss and filmed a music video shot entirely on 35mm film a year and a half ago. Both of which were themed around serious issues in Diatribes personal life. As awesome as all that was, we never really got to portray the side of him that most people originally knew him for… his verbal assault. Anyways, after I sent him this beat a few months ago and he returned it weeks later with some serious hot fire. Eventually, we got him out to California to shoot the video and we finally got a chance to do something dope with the creative freedom we’ve yearned for since making Ninja Turtle toy movies as kids (…ok teens, whatever, we were late bloomers).
The best part of shooting this video was collaborating with some of the most talented people I know. Make sure you check out comedian Steve Post (The Detective) and like his Facebook page for upcoming shows and events. I’d like to thank my homeboy Jamie Gain for drawing up MAD dope sketches for the video and going above and beyond what we asked for. Also, my homeboy Alex Hogan did the most official graphics for the intro and the credits, don’t sleep on the kid. I gotta give MADLOVE to Jon Arbolino for coming through last minute and getting his face pressed up against a wall in the middle of the 8th street right after he got out of work, thanks kid. Its always dope shooting with Diatribe, we’ve been doing this shit for so long it just comes so naturally (sorry for being a dick that last day at the beach) follow him on Twitter and Facebook.
