Meanest Man Contest Premieres Video for "Partially Smart"
- Words: Patric Fallon
Just as the producer/MC duo of Meanest Man Contest has one foot in SF and the other in LA, the group's new track, "Partially Smart," straddles the line between hip-hop and electro, not to mention humor and critique. The video for "Partially Smart" opens poolside with some of the City of Angels' hippest (characters from the web series Txt M3 B1tch ) declaring their good-bad intentions for the day before cutting to MC Eric crashing the party and directing all attention square on him. It's a cool guys' "us vs. them" presented humorously, but, when the video ends, you still get the feeling that Meanest Man Contest just had to get it all off their chest.
