(2)dope premiere time. 2DBz official in-house video director Ricky Shabazz focuses his lens on Juan Deuce and his boy’s and girl’s crazy antics in a one-shot take video set to the sounds of Krill Pill. This new joint is slated to appear on the second volume of the 2DBz sponsored Free Shabazz. Big congrats to the fellas for joining Rik Cordero & the Three/21 Media team. Read an excerpt below for more info:
In February, Ricky Shabazz and the Boom Bap Boys will be releasing their second annual mixtape of exclusive tracks from some of your favorite underground hip-hop acts. This time around, the tape is sponsored by 2dopeboyz and will be released digitally for free. Tracklist/Artwork/Release Date will be announced soon but in the meantime, enjoy the first of many videos that will be put out leading up to the release.
Additionally, this marks the very first in “Ricky’s Wontime” series in conjunction with Three/21 Media. The idea of the series is to achieve a thought provoking and entertaining one-shot music video. There are no restrictions, as long as the entire thing has no cuts and lasts the entirety of the song. Subscribe to Three/21 Media’s YouTube to follow the series in full.
And here it is folks, Juan Deuce & Falside’s latest EP, The Mechanics. Tracklist and download down bottom.
Building on the strength of their recent body of work, Juan Deuce and Falside proudly present The Mechanics EP, a seven track tape flush with keen raps from Juan and diverse production from Falside. The two Providence natives officially joined forces a little over a year ago, and the subsequent fusion of their emerging styles has been nothing short of synergistic. Couple Deuce and Fal’s dynamism with the electrifying video work of Ricky Shabazz (“Guts” premiered on Rik Cordero’s The Hub Series two weeks ago), and you have yourself a bonafide trifecta. This winter, Juan Deuce and Falside will prepare a full-length joint album. If The Mechanics EP is any indication, we’re all in for a treat.
