Critically-acclaimed filmmaker Will Feagins, Jr. teamed up with Clan Destined to capture the feel of the duo's track-turned-interlude "The Language, Pt. 2".  Clan D picks up where they left us with their debut album ABBRACADAMN!!! and took to the turntables to scratch their vocals back and forth.  To take this audio event to an even higher level, they captured the video with help of Serato Scratch Live technology in order to manually scratch the clips of themselves and others to the tune.

The new Mello Music Group album Self Sacrifice is officially out everywhere today on cd and digitally. The album peaked at #24 on itunes Hip-Hop charts last week and after only 5 days became the most downloaded Hip-Hop album of the month at eMusic.  For the official wide release, MMG thought they'd showcase the new joint from Detroit emcee Finale - who is currently putting the finishing touches on his new album The Grand Scheme which is due out on MMG early this fall.  Meanwhile Apollo Brown just returned from SXSW and is preparing to hit Europe for a few weeks before returning to start campaigning for his upcoming Opus Trophies (in-stores May 1st) with the legendary OC.  In the meantime, enjoy the song and feel free to post and share!
