Video – Johnson & Jonson

So I spent a good portion of this weekend revamping the site. Hope you dig.

Anyway, here’s another video, this time from my man Jon at Turntable Lab. Blu (who longtime listeners will remember from as far back as rap podcast ep 34) and Mainframe are Johnson&Jonson, with Bout it Bout it.

As of right now, it seems that aside from a prospective Q3 Japan release, the status of the Johnson&Jonson project is a little hazy, so I can’t point you to a purchase link or anythingupdate: this dude fred is saying that it’s gonna be out stateside in late april, early may. You can, however, get a listen to another track off of J&J’s debut in episode 56.

On the real though, I don’t understand this video. Granted, I don’t think there’s a whole lot to understand, as I’m pretty sure the entire concept was “hey guys let’s make a music video tomorrow! Yeah dog I got a white room, let’s do this shit”. Still though, it’s a cute joint, especially the fast cuts back and forth between whoever all these random cats are.

Also I’d like to publicly state that I do appreciate Blu reminding us that it’s okay for brothers to show up to a video shoot without combing they hair.

  1. Man, that spliff had potential. I was feeling this vid ’cause it wasn’t like anything else. Good choice. No half naked ladies, plus it’s comedy. Also, it doesn’t hurt to have lyrics that make you imagine something other than guns and drugs.

  2. What’s up Dex? Diggin’ the new site design and looking foward to the next episode!

    Peace,
    Greg

  3. Sara – personally I think guns and drugs are pretty awesome but I must admit that I’ve watched this video a lot of times. It’s really weird because I know a few of the people in here and it’s really just hilarious watching what they’re doing in each frame.

  4. The video was filmed at panavision studios, with one of those real huge pro cameras they use for the movies. The concept was scripted, but kept simple. Friends along with other artists came through for the cameos…
