Probably the hardest working emcee thus far, Innocent?‘s work ethic is superhuman. He kicks it off once more with a new video for his tribute to BK joint called Aggravated. The soundscape provided by Fantom of The Beat (formerly known as Haas G) is fast paced, funky with some Afrobeat type vibe as well which allows Innocent? to take it back to the essence(the BK essence to be specific). It’s a really slick video if I may add, digging the graphics and fluidity. What’s more cogent is Innocent? giving props to those that came in the game before him even going far as bigging up the new age cats as well.
Don’t linger, hit the play button.
As a student of the game, Innocent? has seen Hip-Hop evolve from its humble beginnings in the park, during the Rap Renaissance of the late 80’s and early 90’s, where legends like Rakim and the late Notorious B.I.G. spearheaded the movement. On “Aggravated,” the BK spitter spends time addressing his climb in the game, crediting the torchbearers that have helped pave the way, while giving shouts to the leaders of today’s generation that have kept the culture alive. Directed by Donald Robinson Cole III, with horn heavy production supplied by Fantom of the Beat (formerly Haas G of The U.M.C.’s), “Aggravated” is set to appear on Innocent?’s forthcoming LP, Love it or Hate it, which is set for a July 22nd release date.
