In Decemeber, SL Jones released Flight Risk, his second full mixtape and third project of 2011, and while the Little Rock native has already announced a forthcoming EP with DJ Burn One, he's preceding that release with a string of Flight Risk visuals, the first of which is for the tape's lead single, "Actin' Bad."
The song is a lyrical display of sorts, with SL flipping patterns and wordplay throughout, and the video, shot and directed by Red Audio, offers a straightforward but compelling visual that puts the track's energy at the forefront and matches Jones' brashly defiant tone. A mix of lively performance shots - some accompanied by a scantily clad co-star trying her hardest to steal away the spotlight - and clips of SL in a stunning old-school Chevy Impala, the viewer is placed front and center as SL cruises through the town. "I wanted to let the fans feel like they were riding shotgun with me," explains SL, "bending corners through the neighborhood, chopping it up."

"It was a great week for the 'independent guy', as my new digital 'Little Monsters' EP held the spot #1 on the iTunes hip-hop charts in Canada for six straight days, and cracked the Top albums chart," said Madchild. "It’s awesome to know that with our grassroots campaign and the undying support of our fans that we can still reach the top of the iTunes charts and land on the album sales charts with a digital EP. This is a testament to what can happen from non-stop touring, social networking and just connecting with the fans on a person level. Thanks to everyone at Regime Management, Suburban Noize, and all the Battle Axe Warriors for helping push this to the top. Bigger things are coming in 2012 with the release of my first solo album 'Dope Sick' so stay tuned."
