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.
Sorry to email you again so soon after my last update, but I got some late breaking, time-sensitive news. And for once it’s GOOD news! :)

So I need everyone to vote for me to get me to MacWorld!

A-Wax takes the track's second verse, his relaxed flow and slick rhyme patterns falling seamlessly into the beat, as he raps, "I got dough again; paper long/ Never think, just pay the bond...Needing this is what made it right/ Liking this – what made it wrong." The video, directed by Sigmond IV Multimedia, brings the track to life, following a day-in-the-life of Killah L (who raps the song's first verse) as he deals with the headache of his legal situation, lawyer and all.

All are in my Ridiculous Raps series, a project I started last February and then promptly got side-tracked from. Well, I’m doing it again, so here we go:
