Add-2 ‘Prey For The Poor’

Sure, you may be up on Rodeo this weekend, but the album that you should let settle for Labor Day Weekend and beyond is courtesy of Chicago’s own Add-2.

His Jamla Records debut is out now on iTunes and Spotify — the cleverly titled Prey For The Poor.

14 tracks featuring labelmates Rapsody, 9th Wonder, Khrysis, and more. I’ll be sittin’ with the lyrics from one of Chicago’s most insightful writers and deliverers.

Having personally posted many of his new projects and freestyles over the years, it’s great to see today’s landmark release. Salutations! And stream above!

Rapsody “Godzilla”

Rapsody and Jamla Records invaded South Africa not too long ago and one of the results of the trip is this new music video for “Godzilla”, directed by Cam Be.

Cam kills it from the opening frame with a timelapse of the entire flight from the States to Africa. Whaaaat! I had to run it back already.

The video then proceeds with a mix of clips from Rapsody’s sold-out performance, meeting new fans, and action shots amidst the daylight and culture. See if you can catch every slick NBA reference in the rhymes as well. Very cool, all the way around.

Rapsody “Drama” (dir. Cam Be)

The latest Jamla release was Rapsody’s new EP, Beauty and the Beast, and to continue to promote that project, she drops the video for “Drama” today, shot by our longtime collaborator Cam Be. Rapsody gets crewed up for the video and spits an abundance of slick nods to famous figures along the way. Her sports allusions in the 2nd verse really got me. The video features all-centered looks at Rapsody, either individually or with her crew. The editing nicely turns up a notch at the end so press play and keep an eye and ear open all the way through.

Add-2 “Frightening” (prod. Khrysis)

After a brief break, Add-2 is back, and back with a fury. He links up with his Jamla compadre Khrysis for the frantic production that Add meets halfway with a fast flow, furious delivery, and of course… bars. Let’s just say it only took a few of those to be reigned in. The bars and the beat remain lethal throughout and be sure to keep in tune all the way through for the dope outro. Overcome the mid-song drops by copping the A3C Vol. 4 compilation on iTunes now.
