There was a time in Derek Christoff's life when he didn't have many words. It's not that he didn't have a story; but he was stuck on the start.
In the late 90s, the young MC known as D-Sisive came up quickly in the Toronto hip-hop community with a string of well-liked singles, but his burgeoning profile was stopped cold with the illness and death of both of his parents in a six-year span. Grief and depression stole his creativity and motivation for the better part of a decade, but in a moment fit for fable, his lyrical inspiration returned suddenly one day while singing along to the Beach Boys on the radio. It was the new start D-Sisive's story needed. And he hasn't stopped since.

Did you hear the good news? Colorado and Washington legalized the recreational use of marijuana, so you know what that means? Time for some new songs that the smokers can get down with as they crack open a dutch. "PasMeThaBlunt," which is rapper Black Lung's lead single off of his upcoming No Regret$ album (due out December 21st), just got the visual treatment by director Miles Meyer, and is a fitting song for your next smoke session. Boasting a beat that will keep the heads nodding on the street, the Borgata MOB member gives listeners a glimpse into his "higher" lifestyle.
R: This brand new video is for the song "hieroglyphics" from my last project "The Longer Way Home" released January/2012 The visuals were shot by M.E.S.S.age Films out in NJ, prod. by Ivy League Zombie. The hardest question I get as an artist is "what makes you different?" The only way I know how to answer that best is to present visuals like these.
