Boston rapper Slaine, of the rap super group La Coka Nostra, has released his new video for the track "Borrowed Time" online at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1ZmWolwqlw . The track is the newest single from Slaine’s new solo album, "A World With No Skies 2.0", which landed in stores this week courtesy of Suburban Noize Records, and online at http://itun.es/ig43j4 .
"I've been trying to take my videos to a higher level and have them be more like short films. The song ‘Borrowed Time’ is definitely in that vein and director Los Silva captured that perfectly," commented Slaine. "With the video we aimed to give it a surreal dream like quality, and give it kind of a sentimental lonely feel. This track is definitely different than anything else on the record, but the song is an honest portrayal of a real life situation, which is why I decided to shoot a video for it."
Slaine is currently streaming "A World With No Skies 2.0" online in its entirety at AOL Music at http://music.aol.ca/new-releases-full-cds/#/7 . To execute his dark musical vision on his new solo album, Slaine enlisted the help of his La Coka Nostra brothers Everlast and ILL BILL, and Cypress Hill’s B-Real to create a dark hip-hop album that hits squarely in the jaw.
