Video: Trackademicks "State of the Arts"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Oakland-based producer/rapper Trackademicks has sent over this video for the track "State of the Arts" from his forthcoming debut LP of the same name. The track, featuring Oakland songstress Goapele, continues Trackademicks' reputation as a forward-thinking hip-hop producer with its fuzzy pads, skittering beat, and a hyper-synth bassline that pops up for the tune's chorus. The video is a pretty familiar hip-hop affair as we follow Trackademicks while he digs for records, turns up faders, runs into some dancing kids, and gives us a view of his crew in action. State of the Arts, which features a host of collaborators from Mistah F.A.B. to Phonte, is out on January 25 from The Honor Roll Crew.
