Nation Ruckus sets the record straight with its new video for "I’m Blind" off the debut album Boombox Manifesto now in stores. Offered as a prelude to the next single "Victory", this grimy and sincere video brings a new spin on this enigmatic group. Filmed in an abandoned warehouse under the harsh conditions of winter, the video well portrays the cold reality and hardships of being an independent hip-hop artist. True to its edgy style, the alternative trio teams up with long time collaborator IN-1 Studio for the fifth installment in their official video series.
