Mic Terror & Davy Greenberg got together Monday to shoot the clip for Mic Terror’s super dope track, “Send It Up” , which was something I hoped to see a video treatment for.
The video was shot at various locations on the Southside of Chicago and features appearances from Project Mayhem, Ray Protege and comedy duo Lance & Jason. The finished product should be impacting shortly.
Be on the lookout for more Davy Greenberg-directed clips for Project Mayhem, GLC, Rockie Fresh and Vic Mensah on the way.
This is pretty hilarious. Aziz talks about the time Kanye invited him to a club and then over to his house for a party, subsequently leading to Aziz having to tell jokes to Kanye’s guests.
Aziz’s Initmate Moments for a Sensual Evening DVD, CD & MP3 are all available now.

Rap Radar was on hand to get some footage of Gibbs’ set, and filmed tres tracks. The first is “Womb to the Tomb” with Pill on hand, with “Murda on my Mind” and a new cut off Str8 Killa No Filla after the jump. The man is on fire right now….
Rip game proper.
This joint premiered tonight on DePaul Radio. I’m sure the official CDQ will drop any day now.

Every Drop Counts is a grassroots organization assembled in response to the recent devastating earthquake in Haiti.
A group of young artists and activists in Chicago came together with the goal to raise funds in order to send filtration equipment that will provide sustainable, clean bathing and drinking water. Thus, the name Every Drop Counts. We began by establishing a Hip-Hop and soul benefit concert—scheduled to take place in Chicago on Sunday, January 31, 2010. The benefit is meant to create awareness of the fundamental need and human right to access clean water. Water is an essential resource to the vitality of human life, it engenders prolonged community building and development. We are partnering with local sponsors and non for profits to insure we maximize the urgency of survival in Haiti. Our primary partner in our efforts to facilitate the distribution of this critical resource to Haiti is the World Water Relief.
Every Drop Counts Benefit Concert, will include performances by:
Fred Hampton Jr., M1 [of Dead Prez], Jean Grae, Mystic, Rhyme Fest, The Cool Kids, BBU, FM Supreme, Mic Terror, Mikkey Halsted, He Say She Say, Kids These Days, Haki Madhubuti, DJ Sean Mac, DJ Izzo, and appearances by countless surprise guests.
