Video: Esinchill - "Feel My Pain"

Last Thursday marked the release of Esinchill's sophomore album, Vigilante, and already the album is receiving a good amount of hype, but in case you haven't heard of the Oakland, California rapper quite yet here's the perfect opportunity. Esinchill is now releasing a brand new music video for his latest single, "Feel My Pain," a song and video that exposes a detailed picture of the man behind the rhymes.

With keys bouncing in the background early on, the song immediately takes on a personal feel. "The main inspiration was freeing myself of the weight that I had been carrying and harboring towards folks," explains Esinchill as he raps about close relationships. "Resentment and its residue is heavy indeed." And in the last verse you can hear him dissecting his own faults about not being an open person and being hard to talk to, as he raps, "talking to me is like pulling teeth/ I'm well aware of that/ An introvert that rhymes berserk/ Come on, how fair is that?" And to match the song with an equally powerful feel, the video, which was directed by Casual of the legendary Hieroglyphics Crew, and shot in black-and-white for a raw feel, took a straight forward approach, putting Esinchill at the forefront and catching Esinchill in his own element.

PR: Moonshine Bandits New Song Featuring Big B

THE MOONSHINE BANDITS PREMIERE NEW SONG, “FOR THE OUTLAWZ,” FEATURING COLT FORD AND BIG B ON AOL’S THE BOOT

Central California’s country/hip-hop rebel band, the Moonshine Bandits will premiere their new single, “For The Outlawz,” (feat. Colt Ford & Big B) on AOL’s The Boot online at http://www.theboot.com/2011/04/27/moonshine-bandits-for-the-outlawz-colt-ford-big-b/ . The new song is just a swig of what fans can expect from the band’s new album, Whiskey and Women, which will hit stores and digital realms on May 10, 2011, courtesy of Suburban Noize Records. Moreover, fans that want to get their buzz early can submit their pre-order request at www.WhiskeyandWomenCD.com
 
The Moonshine Bandits’ new single, “For The Outlawz,” featuring Colt Ford & Big B is an anthem for those music fans and tastemakers out there who like to blend their genres—which makes it extremely fitting that Average Joe’s Entertainment’s flagship entertainer, Colt Ford, lent his vocals on the tune.
 
“Not only was this song written about those rebels and outlaws we’ve met out on the road at shows over the years; it’s also written for those music critics that can’t seem to understand our type of music that mixes hip-hop with country,” said Tex from Moonshine Bandits. “Just like outlaws aren’t always accepted by society, our brand of music isn’t always accepted by the music industry because they don’t know how to categorize us.”
 
Like Ford, the Moonshine Bandits have the uncanny ability to connect with fans through their music’s real-life, blue collar subject matter. “We have been friends with Colt Ford for awhile and have always respected his music because he also combines elements of hip-hop and country in his music. He has been very successful and has knocked down industry doors for artists like us. We respect his style of music so we reached out to him for this song because we knew he’d be the perfect fit.”

Video: Zion I & The Grouch - "Healing Of The Nation"

As Zion I & The Grouch wrap up the last few dates of their nationwide Healing Of The Nation Tour – a tour that kicked off March 19th with a sold out show in the Bay and will wrap up this Sunday in Santa Barbara, CA before the trio heads to Hawaii for a handful of dates – the Bay Area trio is releasing the latest video from Heroes In The Healing Of The Nation, this time for quasi-title track, "Healing Of The Nation." The video for "Healing Of The Nation" is a fun one, with kids running around the city covered in reel-to-reel tape, throwing bricks and causing havoc, alongside choppy footage of Zumbi and The Grouch as they rap atop Amp Live's raucous, synth- and rock-influenced beat. Full of twists and turns, the video comes back to the memorable hook, as Zumbi spits, "Check me out, I'm on your station/ Coming live with a new vibration... Feel it in your middle, it's the healing of the nation."
