YC ALBUM REVIEW

The Bronx-bred talent is back with the visuals for “The Heaviest Cross.” This video is offers you a straightforward look into Yc’s life. YC The Cynic told Villagevoice that the visuals for his video is composed of different rooms set in a strange environment each representing a verse:

 

The first verse is about my career. The second verse is about my family. The third verse I guess I’m talking about spiritual beliefs. – YC The Cynic

 

Yc shot the simple yet captivating video in South Bronx. The visuals are heavy in symbolism. The MC uses a tilted crown to emphasize his respect for Biggie but also maybe to announce that he is gunning to reach the great heights Notorious Big reached. When rapping about his family, Yc spits in a living room setting composed of a simple couch, a giant teddy bear and a picture of his mother with her children. The simplicity of it represent his background and the bear represent his childhood. They are many more things to decode from the video. Give it a shot. You should go cop GNK on Itunes.

 

 

Directed by: Oliver Eid.

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.
