TRU WEEKLY: New Music from Whitney C., Apollo Sun “Conversations” Music Video Release, Graffititech “Lost and Found” Premiere
This week on Tru Weekly: We’ve got new music videos from producer Graffititech and rock band Apollo Sun, as well as some sultry sounds from one of my favorite poets, Whitney C.
Whitney C.’s (@Whit_B_Wells) voice will hypnotize you on her new track “Sober”. Although she’s better known for her first passion, spoken word, Whitney makes us pay attention to her career as a singing artist on this seductive piece. In the song she questions her mate’s loyalty to her in the absence of alcohol. Downloadable or no?
Rock group Apollo Sun, featuring Sela member and “The Cut” creator @JLeezy, have finally released their first music video for one of the singles off of their forthcoming EP, Click Away. In the “Conversations” video JLeezy finds love in a bar and quickly loses it, only to recover his interest later as the night draws to an end. Shoutout to Apollo Sun for using the Inner Harbor as the backdrop for their performance, that’s how we do!
Click Away drops December 4.
Baltimore arts collective Cre3sol (@Cre3Sol) and producer Graffititech (@Graffititech) (remember Blissfully Inadequate?) joined forces to release the visuals for “Lost & Found”, one of the tracks off of Graffititech’s latest beat tape. The silent video, so appropriately released on Halloween, follows the producer around as he joins a party with some unexpected creepy characters in the mix. Sure scared me!
The video was directed by the very talented Heru Gin. This isn’t the first time I’ve peeped his videography skills so I can tell you that homeboy produces quality music videos. You can also peep other Baltimore producers like @ActionBastard, @Berkolover , @AkmarShabazz, @UncleRussie, and @MillionaireMax playing some of the creepers. S/O to all these fellas!
