Blestenation Release Video For ‘Blackout’ Featuring Blink 182’s Travis Barker ***
New York hip-hop trio Blestenation has released their video for the track “Blackout” featuring Blink 182’s Travis Barker online at www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5JTV0nY48c. The track will be featured on Blestenation’s debut album "Mbugout City", which hits stores on February 23rd, 2010 through Suburban Noize Records.
"’Blackout’ is one of my favorite songs on the album. My man Lonnie and I were in the studio together for about fifteen minutes and came up with the track, then he laid down the hook. Later on some of our people sent it to Travis Barker who had been a big fan of our 'FAM3 mixtape'. He laid down live drums and sent me the files and we worked it in to the song. He was real cool about it," commented FAFU from Blestenation. "The song is about waking up after a night of debauchery and not really remembering what had happened or how you ended up where you ended up. It's something a lot of us can relate to."
Blestenation have been destroying the world of underground hip-hop on tour with the likes of Bone Thugs -N- Harmony, Scarface, Killah Priest, and the Warped Tour. The group was previously signed to Geffen Records, but their reckless behavior got them kicked off of the Warped Tour, into fist fights inside the Sony Music offices, and booted out of the Teen Choice Awards after an altercation with American Idol's Ryan Seacrest.
