I feel truly blessed that after all this time I’m still able to do what I do with so much love in my heart, and I’m still gettin’ love for it. The song, and new video, “The New Knack”, was brought together by that love. It started one night when I heard a super dope beat by my homeboy Joe Doose. This led me to write exactly what I was feeling in the moment. Then came the incredible cuts by Dj Joe Z, and we had something cookin’.
When it was time to make a video, I called on my longtime collaborator and little sister Vanessa to help me bring my vision to life. Her work behind the camera is always top notch. An extra special thanks to my brotha Brian Fischer for the use of the location. If you’re in Sac, check out his business Buffalo Pizza and Ice Cream. You Will Not Be Disappointed! And an extra extra special thanks goes out to my brotha Ryan “Munch” Tsniu of FlexibleFlav Crew for coordinating all the amazing bboys and bgirls in the video, including the legendary BBoy Maurizio The Next One (Rock Steady, Zulu Nation, Gang Starr) from Italy. It was an international affair. Italy, Russia, Switzerland, Mexico, Stockton, and Sacramento all repped lovely in this one.
Thanks to my brotha Sactown MC, graf artist and Dj… Mr. P Chill for blessing the shoot with an original graf piece. And thanks to my fam Terrence Shelton, Dj Grand, and Carlton Parker who came out to support the project in so many ways… I’m definitely feeling the love, and I hope that comes through when you watch this video. Enjoy
