We've got a new music video from JustMe's latest album "Full Disclosure". The video is for the single "Knob Creek" that features Marcus Wilkerson & Sheisty Khrist. Deacon the Villain (Cunninlynguists) directed the video.
The song is produced by the highly skilled and respected Anthony Ustazewski, also known as "Ski," who is co-founder of the production company Groundbreaking Entertainment. The beat craftsman's tantalizing horns and bellowing base mixed with Yung Prof's standout voice and descriptive lyrics are sure to make this not only a hit, but also a classic.
