Brooklynite emcee/producer Gliffics goes in over the Dilla produced “Thought U Wuz Nice” instrumental used back in ’99 by the one they call Phife. Drawing inspiration from his own burgundy colored walls, this video is the culmination of good piff mixed with the right pantone. Burgundy walls…don’t you wish you had some?If you like what you hear, keep an eye out for a new video series from Gliffics, presented by LiveMixtapes.com. 

 

Burgundy walls are literally the color of the walls in my living room. In fact the entire video was shot in my home in my living room and then we occupied another room and painted it burgundy just for the shoot. The idea came to me back in ’09, I was smoking some fine chronic and I came across the instrumental. I was having one of those moments where you stare off into space, but only I was staring at my burgundy painted walls and started reflecting on how far I’ve come in life. Its not hard to decipher, but if you listen closely I’m saying in the chorus how “I remember” and “don’t you wish you had some burgundy walls” as a metaphor for, ‘don’t you wish you had time to sit down and reflect or reminisce?’ It’s easy to get caught up in the fast pace life, so in these verses I’m just taking it back to my random history, inspired through Dilla’s instrumental, the chronic and my burgundy walls… – Gliffics

Greg Grease – “Forward”

 

 

If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break. And what good timing to introduce Greg Grease‘s latest video for “Forward”, a stripped down, less-is-more banger that doesn’t need to be overdramatic to get it’s point across. Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage. Check it out and be sure to pick up Greg Grease’s Black King Cole EP if you don’t already own it.
