Video: WP Gallery Presents: DISTORT "The Crusades" (Nov 7th 2015)

Here you go everyone! The first of 3 videos to come for Distort's latest solo show  "The Crusades." I've been watching his work develop for the past few months and I must say that it is some top notch next level art. His approach to fine arts and graffiti are like nothing I've ever seen before. Everything has a meaning and every image in many ways is a part of his life, inspirations and a reflection of the world we live in today. I will confidently say that I believe Distort is one of a kind and on his way to be one of the greatest artists of our time. I highly recommend this show to everyone and hope to see all of you there.

Also I'd like to give all the props in the world to Evan over at WP Gallery for his support for artists like Distort, Ntel, Mr Mustart and Clarence Rich. He's been introducing these guys work along with many others and taking the risks needed to make shows like "The Crusades" happen. I salute him and everything he's done for the artists I support.

Element Tree Presents: 5IVER

Major shout out to 5IVER and his work. Not only is he young and hungry but he's burning it down in a very short period of time. I could see this youngster being a monster in the next couple of years. Keep your eyes on his work and if you don't, no worries... I'm sure it will smack you right in the face and get your attention. Peace and Respect to this young blood on the rise. -Serringe

Coming Soon! Doc Reevez "Problematic" Prod by 2 Hungry Bros

For what feels like the passed year I've been avoiding hearing any cuts from this project. Doc Reevez and Ben Boogz have been offering me opportunities to give em a listen and I've refused every time. I figured Ill just wait till it drops and hear it when everyone one else does. This way I can experience the project in full effect. It was tough but now here comes the goodies.

This Problematic sneak peak into "Recipe For Disaster" sounds bananas! I cant wait to hear this collabo. As many of you know 2 Hungry Bros have quite the distinctive sound. In past projects you can here how their production draws out new flows and ideas from an artist. This had me wondering
how Doc Reevez may have connected to the music, but now hearing Problematic its exactly what I imagined. Raw concepts and lyrics accompanied by wild deliveries and vocal fluctuations.... amazing. Cant wait to hear the rest.

 Doc Reevez & 2 Hungry Bros " Recipe For Disaster " LP drops August 4th on Already Dead Tapes http://alreadydeadtapes.com/

Salutes to Doc Reevez, Ben Boogz and Deep... you guys kill it.

SNOWSTORM Volume:1 The Art and Life of Carmelo "Snow" Sigona

As a kid first discovering graffiti in the late 80's and early 90's there were only two writers that caught my attention and introduced me to the possibilities of spray paint through art that popped up over night... Snow was one of them. I once had the opportunity to hang out with Snow in his home/dojo and based on my experience I can imagine what's in this book. Snow is a genius not just with paint but with words and overall philosophy. I have a huge respect for him and his history and that's why I believe we should all have this book in our knowledge libraries. Its because of Snow that I just don't jump to cutting your head off like I used to.... Now I let you know I have Hanz┼Ź sword on my person... The rest is up to you. Salutes to my big brother Snow! 

The inspirations and struggles of the infamous New Jersey graffiti artist Snow. This volume showcases some of Snow's earliest works, his brushes with the law, his travels, and his humble beginnings as a professional artist. Catch a glimpse of some of his rare and never-before-seen images!

Video: Cannibal Ox - "Harlem Knights"

Kaboom! First of all till this very day Cannibal Ox's The Cold Vein stands as one of the most original and ground breaking hip hop releases of all time... In my opinion of course. Since then I've been waiting for the follow up thinking... damn that Cold Vein album is going to be hard to match, but then  Blade of the Ronin drops and I immediately thought wow these guys did it. A solid follow up that can almost give you chills during your first listen. So to all my hip hop heads, if you haven't picked up Blade of The Ronin.... do that now.

Now lets talk Harlem Knights. Not only is this song amazing but this video is about as simple as they come except it works perfectly based on the title of the song. Watch this video to get a feel for a night out in Harlem and just the overall New York vibe at night. As a videographer myself I enjoyed the visual marriage with the music... straight up solid.

Show these killas some love, push play and get your download on. Peace and Respect. -Serringe
