Here’s the new single, “Believe,” featuring fellow Mississippi native, BIG K.R.I.T off David Banner’s upcoming mixtape, “Sex, Drugs and Video Games,” scheduled to release on 5-22-2012.
“Sex, Drugs and Video Games” is a free mixtape, but Banner is asking for fans to support “The Movement”. The goal of “Sex, Drugs & Video Games” is to show the world Urban music is still valuable. And how is he going to do that? Banner needs 2 million of you to download this mixtape for free, then he needs the same 2 million of you to donate at least $1 to the movement; but feel free to donate more, as there is no maximum donation.
And what is “The Movement” you may ask? This movement is to start controlling our own music, movies and content…PERIOD! As David Banner states “We are not simply characters in a video game being controlled by the invisible hand. Once this donation goal is met, I’m going to shoot a movie that will drop 5-22-2013 and a portion of the donations are also going to charity. Big shout out to Louie C.K. for the motivation. Download this mixtape for FREE and make sure to support the movement. Hell, even if you don’t like me, at least support the movement, because that’s what this is all really about.”
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.
