Two weeks ago, Aaron Cohen released the music video for his ASAP Ty Beats produced track, "Feminist." After a very well-received reaction, he now unleashes the follow-up inspired by the prolific author "Helen Keller” produced by Infinite Jeanius. Watch the vivid visuals directed by Nicolas Heller of Ricky Shabazz and The Boom Bap Boys. Be on the lookout for "Helen Keller" and "Feminist" on Aaron's upcoming mixtape MURK, which releases online this Tuesday, September, 25 2012.
“The Process” is a web-series that zeros in on the various methods artists use to reach a creative means. From writing, rhyming, how a beat is produced, to how they actually record-- everyone has a process! Episode One of “The Process” sheds some light on Skyzoo’s process, as he writes and records a verse to Nina B’s “718” (which also includes Action Bronson) from her recently released mixtape “Titles Are Played Out!”
"Progression" is a song that addresses the art of advancement. Arvid Wu put together some lovely visual elements for the video. Praverb talks about Christianity, bills, and the married life with this four bar couplet: "P Viz with a nice passion, spend nights napping/Reading the word, observe the nerd, engage in Christ rapping/Bills are reality, forget about the mic snatching/Telling fans life happens with the wife yapping."
