NEW VIDEO: KJ “Bossed Up” (Directed by Mark Valino for AHR Films)

Ty Harper | Music,Video | Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

Directed by Mark Valino for AHR Films.

Beatless visuals for KJ’s “Bossed Up” joint as we await the release of his sophomore project – “Water”.

KJ’s Statement:
“Bossed Up” is one of the songs off of my upcoming album called “Water”. We’re not really going to get into why i called the album that right now but more so a little blurb about the song. The song is written from the 17 year old me’s perspective, we used to have a lot of fun as teenagers, some could have gotten us into a lot of trouble with parents and the law. All in all we were just trying to have fun and be young without actually going out with that intention.

Bossed up is about friends, movie marathons, wine, hennesy, driving your moms car and looking cool, going to hurontario and dundas (5 and 10)for food or a haircut, going to a party in the middle of the burbs that got shot up, shure sm57’s, chappelle show, weed, nissan altimas, protools, fake bus passes, riding bicycles, mosh pits to dirty south music, jerk chicken and hardow bread and some other things. More importantly that was my world at 17 and im glad i remember it all.

I’ve bumped into Mark in passing a few times, always told him im a fan, always wanted to work with him but also understood a filmmaker’s time is not cheap because of the amount of work they put in. Got a text from a mutual friend saying Giles needed my number, after i responded “yeaaaaaa thats cool”, i felt like maybe this might be that time. Before i even spoke to Giles i was thinking of what song i would want to do, bossed up came to mind soon after.

Valino’s Log:
We shot this in the Junction area just off of Keele St. During our conceptual meeting he described the song as a “throw back” and had mentioned a couple spots including the basketball court which I had always thought would be a great location for a shoot. The stockyard was another location that driving through would make a great location but when I was there i wasn’t so impressed. The area that stuck out to me in thein the junction was Dundas W and Keele. It’s one of those intersections where alot of pigeons congregate and fly in patterns. I have always been drawn to it for some reason. I guess because it’s freeing. That intersection is visually a great intersection with its old worn buildings and wildlife amongst all the colorful characters on that corner. It was a great shoot and I feel that the flow of KJ’s verse allowed me to get away with some jarring jumpcuts. I hope to work with KJ again soon…

This was Shot in 3.5hrs. The b-roll was shot on a separate day for 1hr and 9hrs editing

INTERVIEW: The Airplane Boys w/ GlobalGrind.com

rez | Interviews | Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

The Airplane Boys are Toronto’s premiere hip-hop duo.

Coming down from the high they experienced with legendary rapper Snoop Dogg, GlobalGrind caught up with Beck Motley and Bon Voyage to chit-chat about being hometown heroes.

Adding to the list of talent emerging from Toronto’s music scene, The Airplane Boys are the new faces of an ever-evolving hip-hop genre.

Check out our exclusive interview with The Airplanes Boys below!

GlobalGrind: You guys came back from the UK. How was that, you were with Snoop?

Beck Motley: All the time.

How crazy was that?

Amazing because the time zone difference, the different culture, they drive on the right side, different type of money —as a group it’s a whole new experience. The traveling part and learning different cultures and communicating and just hearing different accents, it’s refreshing for us.

How was it touring with Snoop?  Did you guys roll up with Snoop?

Bon Voyage: We did, the first tour. That was ill.

Beck Motley: It’s nuts. After every show we would go into the crowd and take pictures with them, drink with them, toast with them. It’s really wild out there, especially in Scotland.

Bon Voyage: Guys trying to kiss you, girls trying to hawk you down. It’s some f*cked up sh*t.

Beck Motley: Trying to grab your face, put it in their chest.

Wow. What’s been like the wildest thing that’s happened, then?

Bon Voyage: This 38-year-old lady grabbed my head and just tumbled me down, and I had no f*cking choice. And she’s like ‘OK, let’s take a picture.’

You guys did some shows with J.Cole, how was that?

That was amazing because we’re driving from place to place, and that gave it that rock and roll feel. In every state I’m going to go in. it was just inspiring to see another—who you would say is leading the new young wave. With Snoop it was an iconic legend, and you learn that way. But with J. Cole it’s someone that’s not too far.
