This morning, the folks at Genius premiered the brand new lyric video for ‘This Ecstatic Cult’ ft. Killer Mike. For visuals, we turned to our homie, the mysterious Philly graffiti dude, Grim Grim Grim who handled lettering and artwork. Set against a surreal backdrop of unsettling cult imagery, Mike and I trade class warfare rhymes at lightning speed.

Visit Genius to watch the official ‘This Ecstatic Cult’ lyric video and add your own annotation on the song’s lyric page for your chance to win a signed Ritualize CD, once the album drops next Friday, February 19th.

A few weeks back, we rediscovered this rad video performance and I’m psyched to finally share it. Recorded a year-or-so ago, it’s an at-home weird vibes interpretation of Erik Satie’s ‘Gymnopedie’ featuring myself on piano, Eric Slick from Dr. Dog on percussion & tape recorder, and the homie Keith Hampson on prepared vibraphone and tenori-on. The video was directed by Peter English and edited by Larry DeMark.

Late last year, I released a 10+ minute, 4-movement rap epic about the strange Toynbee Tile meta-art conspiracy. The sweeping Toynbee Suite piece features contributions from RJD2, Nightlands, Yikes the Zero, and a full chamber group, while a beautiful making-of documentary was also filmed by the talented team at Shaking Through. Now, an interview about the whole affair airs this week via nationally-syndicated NPR program, Studio 360.
