Golden Cow flying on the sky (Photo credit: Cromo)Got this in my email inbox this morning!
Another video by my dad, this one for the song I just recorded (but desperately want to re-record-- weekend, I'm lookin at you), called "WE RULE THE STREETS." Beat supplied by bangME.
I swear, I'm not telling my dad to make these videos. He genuinely enjoys compiling photos and clips to accompany my songs.
And I love that my dad is helping me in my hip-hop hobby/career. Do you think Jay-Z's mom ever produced a music video for him? haha. Here is the message which accompanied the video, posted below:
Had some fun working with Allie's latest rap: "Ivory Tower/We RULE The Streets."
Used photos from her website, plus some personal shots, and made a couple of animations, got other information from Wikipedia.
Finally, I grabbed some footage from the old movie, Moses and The Ten Commandments. No Charlton Heston cameos, I promise.
Apologies to Eddy G. (Robinson). In life you were way cool.
Please view the video when you get a chance. Comments welcome. Well, mostly...
I hope you like it honey!
Gotta tell you, Allie, that I enjoy working on these with you. I kind of envisioned us collaborating on video projects years ago, before you went to Frisco. Had no idea that it would pan out like this, though. Had imagined you cranking out tunes on the computer music keyboard, mixing them in Garage Band, then us doing something in Final Cut Pro.
Your music is fresh and I try and match the pace with what I feel are appropriate images. By appropriate I do not mean PC, but that they 'fit' the music as best as my poor skills will allow.
Off to see Uncles Rick and Michael for a dip and few laughs and some beers followed by a Bastille Day dinner party in Ventnor Saturday night. Mom and I are cooking for them. Then up to PJ and Stella's in Brigantine on Sunday morning for some more beach time.
