Truth Universal's latest video -- "Paperchase" is here! This outstanding animated visual art project is the work of filmmaker Mark Lester. The song, produced by DJ Def D, appears on Truth's "Resistance Vol. 2: Polygraph" release. "Paperchase" deals with the struggle to attain and maintain wealth in a very chaotic, volatile, exploitative, and cutthroat capitalist economy. Yet and still, we're all still on a "Paperchase!"
We wanted to create something innovative: the entire music video was made on an $86 DOLLAR BUDGET. An enormous thank you goes out to Underscore Films for creating such a brilliant video to our 1st single off our upcoming "Heinous City EP" Also big thanks goes out to Gene Karma for the co-production on the song.
