HipHopDX Premiere: Doomtree MC Sims has recruited Chicago duo Air Credits — The Hood Internet’s Steve Reidell and rapper ShowYouSuck — and Minneapolis producer ICETEP for a new concept album called Artería Verité.
Ahead of its release, the foursome has dropped a video for lead single, “Hologramme.” Directed by Peter Angus Medlock, the dark visual takes places during the wee hours of the night, sometime in what Sims describes as “next week’s dystopian future.”
“Sims and ShowYouSuck handle the raps, pulp-driven snapshots from the wasteland and its inhabitants, their means for survival, their need to commune, their arterial link to one another through underground channels of communique,” the press release reads in part.
“ICETEP and Reidell handle the production, sweeping synths over a vascular pulsing of low frequencies creating a tension, like a machine seeing its own blood. The songs speak to our baser needs to find each other, especially when in the shit.
Artería Verité is expected to arrive on August 3 via Doomtree Records and pre-orders are available here.
