Anything But Broke team up with Nappy Roots on "Keep The Crypt" • Word Is Bond


Hip Hop veterans Nappy Roots collaborate with award-winning DJ and music producer Anything But Broke to make a political statement. On their new collaboration, Anything But Broke crafts a vibrant and groovy backdrop for the Southern rap quartet to convey their thoughts over. The vibe might be bright and lush but the topics range from modern producers like Diplo to television being used to brainwash the masses and racial discrimination against minorities being treated as terrorists. It’s definitely denser than the average Southern trap song you will hear this week.

The visual plays out like a day in the park with everyone doing their thing but the message gets enhanced once the chorus hits and the visual effects kick in to remind the listener that Everything’s an illusion.

Praa wants to know "Y" [Video] • Word Is Bond

French indie single Praa (real names Marion Lagassa) delivers the stunning visuals for her song “Y”. The laid-back ethereal record is a sweet blend of RnB/soul and modern experimental elements. Her sultry and expressive vocals glide effortlessly over the backdrop as she questions our human connection about the – mostly – virtual relationships we maintain through our screens.

The CONTACT directed visuals take the minimal approach with a focus on the act as she performs the song in a dimly light space. The dynamic vibe is enhanced as the colors change from black during the verses to a reddish hue on the chorus most likely signifying a rise in emotions. Interesting concept if you asked me. The track was written by Praa and produced by Timsters.

N-Depth overlooks the city as "The Batman" • Word Is Bond

San Fran based emcee N-Depth shares his newest single “The Batman” alongside its accompanying video. Like the title states, the song is inspired by the DC comic character of the same name which N-Depth fell in love with since he saw the 1989 movie version starring Michael Keaton.  On this single, he teamed up with a fellow SF producer Revelation who cooked up a gloomy, melodic guitar-driven soundscape for the rapper to pay homage to his favourite superhero.

The visuals also have a dark vibe/aesthetic which emphasizes the Dark Knight concept with its cinematic feel. He further states “This song is really about protecting the ones that you care about but with the Batman name on it and Batman references. Plus, I was really inspired by ‘Walk This Way’ by Run-DMC & Aerosmith back in the day so wanted to make a track that combined hip-hop and rock elements.”

“The Batman”  is off his new album called “After Effect”. Get the single here and the entire album here.

Wordburglar pays homage to the age of video rentals on "Rental Patient"[video] • Word Is Bond

Canadian indie rapper Wordburglar takes us back to the 90s way before Netflix and online video streaming. The days of Blockbuster and other countless video rental stores that added some form of joy in our youth. The rapper takes it from a very novel angle here, he says movie renters must have some type of rental patience in the situation where they couldn’t get a movie they wanted to watch because someone else has rented it first and the store has no extra copies. Thinking back now just makes me wonder how many times that happened and we would have to crawl back to the store days later just to acquire the film.

The Nathan Boone directed video puts the rapper in an institution where he talks about his rental addiction to other patients as a form of therapy. This is pretty interesting and very engaging all the way.

His thoughts on the video:

The idea for “Rental Patient” sparked when I was babysitting my niece, picking out a movie to watch online. It dawned on me that she would never know what it was like to wander through a dingy video store after school, eating stale popcorn while fumbling through boxes, hunting for something cool to watch because the movie you originally wanted to see was already rented. Not being able to watch a video because somebody else is watching it struck me as pretty hilarious, but it was just a fact of life when I was her age. If you were a movie fan in the age of renters, you had to have rental patience – and the song pretty much wrote itself from there.


“Rental Patient” is the first single from Wordburglar’s 6th full-length album “Rhyme Your Business” available now.
