Shane Eli puts together some visuals for his latest single (which is available on iTunes). And after watching the movie-esque video that Shane calls the “best work [he's] ever done” I can’t help but agree, this is dope.
On July 30, The DJBooth will be releasing the latest installment of Re-Produced, an exclusive EP series in which three hand-picked producers will put their own spin on a record by a reader-approved artist. Number two in the series will be based around “Blur,” a Wrekonize-produced cut off underground icon Tech N9ne’s Klusterfuk EP.
DJBoothTV’s crew usually keeps well within the confines of New York City, but for our special L.A. Edition of Outside the Booth, Jacques Morels traveled to the sunny streets of Los Angeles to sit down with seven of the west coast’s best and brightest talents: THURZ, El Prez, Shane Eli, Chuuwee, Jenilee Reyes, Ahmad and Chi-Town to L.A. transplant BJ the Chicago Kid.
It’s a bit NSFW, but it’s not like that’s stopped any of you before…
“I’ve been working hard to create visuals for I Can Do Better because you deserve to see what was going through my head when I made these songs. “When No One Cares” is obviously a very heavy track, as it deals with depression and suicide, so this video may be disturbing for some. That said, I think it conveys the emotion I was going for when I wrote the song. I don’t want to say much else, but I hope you enjoy it.” – Shane Eli
With Shane Eli performing at our SXSW showcase I figured it’s about time we get you familiar with the Los Angeles emcee/producer. When We Were Kings marks the third release off his upcoming project, I Can Do Better, dropping in March w/ features from Laws, Smoke DZA, El Prez, Playboy Tre and more.
