MP3/Video: ZAKEE - "Dope Girl"

After all is said and done, every guy just wants something dope he can call his own. That's the idea behind ZAKEE's new single, "Dope Girl," the latest release from his debut album, Assimilations, currently available for purchase via Green Owl Records/Warner Music Group.

The washed-out, dreamy video for "Dope Girl" was directed by Joey Angerone and inspired by none other than James Dean, another old-timer who has served as an inspiration for ZAKEE. "I always loved how cool and calm he looked on camera and wanted to evoke that same feeling, but tailored for me," says ZAKEE. Looking like an old home movie, the video celebrates how satisfying it can be to simply hang out in the rain with the things you cherish most. "I have the most amazing days riding around in my Chevy with my two girls: Mary Jane and my Dope Girl," says ZAKEE.

Erk Tha Jerk is not your every day, ordinary rap artist. In an era where the majority of artists are all sounding the same, looking the same, and doing the same things, Erk stands out as a real one of a kind artist. At first glance, you would not assume that Erk was a rapper/producer/songwriter, but with his trademark glasses, wit, and laid back persona, he brings something that your average music... listener can embrace and relate to. He explains, "Being myself is a must. That's the kind of music I make. Real sh*t. I don't feel the same everyday. Some days I'm on my get money sh*t, then the next I'm on my chill at home sh*t. I just make sure everybody can relate."


Watch the video for "Magic" here



Erk Tha Jerk - "Magic"

On Therapy at 3, two critically acclaimed artists join forces: Eligh of Living Legends (also of Grouch & Eligh) and Amp Live of Zion I. Both Amp and Eligh are legends of hip hop in their own right in the production and vocal side of things, and this record brings together the best of both artists. Futuristic production, signature rapping from Eligh, and forwarding thinking musicality make this a beast to never forget!
