A wise man once said Knowledge reigns supreme over nearly everybody and in this day and age this still rings true. The boston duo Blak Madeen mix their deen with hard beats, street and personal narratives to bridge the gap between the knowledgable and the ignorant. Their latest output titled Main Attraction positions the duo in the forefront. Check the video right away.
Boston rap duo Blak Madeen use their sharp flows, knowledge, and attention-commanding stage presence to bring the Supreme Aftermath banger “Main Attraction” to life in their stylish new video.
The video is directed by Xander Z. Hayes, whose previous work include Reks’ “Hands Up (Wink Wink)” and Taj Amir & Kid Lodi’s “The Underdog Story.” And with “Main Attraction,” which is produced by Snowgoons’ Sicknature, Hayes clearly found inspiration in the powerful rhymes brought forth by Blak Madeen’s Al-J and Yusuf Abdul-Mateen.
The director’s vision becomes clear as the primarily black-and-white visuals become interspersed with images that complement the duo’s rhymes. This includes everything from footage of political rallies, to the cover of a classic Divine Styler record, to a quick shot of Donald Trump surrounded by fire and brimstone. It’s all done subtly and with attention to detail, and it’ll leave you wanting to watch “Main Attraction” again to make sure you caught everything.
Supreme Aftermath is out now via Rhyme Dawah and available on all major digital retailers and streaming services. Also, if you’re in the Boston area on July 17, be sure to catch the duo rocking the stage at the Outside The Box Festival (it’s free!).
