Cassette Verite (update) / Mighty High Coup – To The Moon (Bandcamp release)

•December 20, 2010 • Leave a Comment

Whut up?! SOS here wishing you Happy Holidays & checking in with you to give you the scoop on what I’ve been up to before you hear it anywhere else.

I know many of you are awaiting the release of Cassette Verité, and I can assure you that it is definitely underway and damn near perfect. Aside from 1 or 2 final mixes the album is basically done. Allan Corbett & Tonedeff have been doing a great job brainstorming on the album art and I commend them on their work. The shit looks pretty dope..

..oh yeah, and it’s also being released on cassette. Thus the title Casssette Verité (or what a real mix tape sounds like). So expect that to drop … lets just say any day now until further notice 🙂

Meanwhile, for those who don’t know, I recently teamed up with rapper/producer Ricky Raw (Apocalyptic Doomsday, 2013) and fellow ATL emcee A-Bomb to form the Mighty High Coup and the response has been overwhelming. All of you along with the thousands of people who heard us via the Bassnectar remix of 808 and those who have caused facebook to shut us down from all the friend requests, you rock. You’re the reason underground and independent artists are still alive and we really mean it when we say that we couldn’t do this without you.

If you haven’t done so already, you can check out the album To The Moon now on Bandcamp for free from front to back. We’re so proud of it that we just want you to press play and enjoy it all. With verses from me, Ricky, Bommy, Cashmere The Pro, Wes Green (and more) plus production by Ricky Raw & Wes Green, you pretty much can’t go wrong. Have a listen for yourself.

Enjoy the Mighty High Coup and get ready for Cassette Verité! Oh and if I don’t see you, Happy New Years!

PEACE
SOS

Nick Swardson – Creepios

•December 16, 2010 • 1 Comment

I’m always up for a good laugh, and also a good bit of weird or “creepy” humor. Nick Swardson seems to have found his niche on his new show Pretend Time on Comedy Central. Probably the creepiest comedy sketch ever written, but knowing Swardson he’ll probably be topping it sometime soon.

This was worth a few views from me. At least 2, but I’m a dork.

Homeboy Sandman at a3c 2010 (main stage)

•December 1, 2010 • Leave a Comment

One of the highlights of 2010 was probably this year’s a3c festival at the Masquerade, which featured many hidden gems, including yours truly. One of this year’s highlights was definitely Homeboy Sandman who came down from New York with an arsenal of sick flows. He was seen rocking at least 4 separate times during the course of the week (more than anyone else I believe) and those who weren’t already fans left as fans. Here is a video of a short set that he killed on the main stage. Expect more from him featured on future QN5 projects alongside Pack FM and Mr. SOS (do I smell a clue?).

Disclaimer: Go ahead and press play on this video so you can give Bomby time to find his way to the stage. We like to make you feel like you’re really there.

Excuse my lateness, but you should be honored by my lateness *kanyeshrug*. That’s right, I just used *kanyeshrug* in a blog like if was new. That’s because a lot has happened since last blog and I’m not afraid to bring it all back. Consider this your recap.

The Mighty High Coup album To The Moon is now available on iTunes (and soon Bandcamp). Somehow in between partying, working, and getting robbed of all original files, this album has managed to see the light of day, not to mention gain a lot of buzz. Thank you all for the support as we continue to grow. Shout out to Daniel Day Zuko for shooting this footage with my new iPhone 4, and thanks again to everyone who came out to support our digital album release. Have fun & enjoy the video.

Mr. SOS – What’s MK ULTRA? (music video)

•August 4, 2010 • Leave a Comment

Fans of the album How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love The Bomb have recently found themselves in a bit of a predicament. They have all of these futuristic, groundbreaking, and overall awesome tracks from this criminally slept on album to listen to, but as visual as the album may be to some, there is no music video out to really drive any of the concepts home yet. Well, look no further because there is now. Directed by Allan Corbett and co-directed by myself (but mainly Allan) this video takes one of the less appreciated songs on the album and turns it into one of the most conceptual songs/music videos of the year so far (and I’m half quoting, not just blindly bragging). And if you don’t know what MK ULTRA is yet, what the hell is that search engine on the top right hand corner of your web browser for then anyways?

Shout out to Allan Corbett for laying the awesome graphics and typography, Cipher Linguistics for producing the track, Knick of Evol Intent (& LudaChrist) for playing the guitar part which everyone always thinks is a sample, and to my girl Jenny for making some pretty realistic (and very sticky) blood.

Warning: No need to adjust your screen. This video is a bit trippy..
