Everyone hates going to the grocery store. There’s long lines. There’s slow checkers. And it’s always packed on the 1st and the 15th. But 24k Astall with some help from his friend David Puffin turn a trip to the grocery store into a non-stop turn-up in their video Caillou. That’s right Caillou not some vegetable you’ll find in the produce aisle. Caillou (pronounced KY-YOO), is a cartoon character that has crazy adventures, so it's only right that 24k Astall and David Puffin have an adventure of their own.
Its 11:53 PM, a tall lanky figure approaches the stage to a crowd full of art and music enthusiasts. As the figure approaches he is greeted by various people giving him daps and handshakes as to show their admiration. The crowd surrounds the stage. The music comes on and St. Domoniick grabs the mic.
A cymbal taps lightly as it blends smoothly into the background. A bass kick starts followed by a few light hits of a snare. That's how you let the beat build. The cymbal clashes as a piano comes in soo soulfully playing along with the drums. But this still doesn't feel like the main ingredient, not just yet. A funky electric guitar pierces through the beat. That's that main ingredient I was searching for. Now this feels right. This feels familiar. The crowd starts to cheer and clap. Then he starts to rap, "Check. I can see my old school, use to be a young Hawk. my girl was a Miller Driller, that's where it all started...' I start to sing along having heard this song before.
Busta Rhymes was in a feather suit for a 2.7 million dollar video but I bet that you don't know one verse from that song. Though people still wear feather suits, what they don't do is pay 2.7 million for a music video. Long gone are the flashy cars and big mansions and the million dollar budgets, but what happens when all the flashing lights and pyrotechnics are gone? What happens when ain't no more Big Pimpin'? I'll tell what happens, the message does the shining. And Kode Ransom is proving just this with his recent videos called “Big Crutch” and “Brenda’s Got A Baby (Reboot)”. So sit back and watch Kode Ransom tell these two powerful stories.
