Posse cuts have lost their luster and place in the culture, because, as the Honorable Dwayne Carter, Jr. recently eloquently stated: “[Rappers] are not trying to be the best rapper, or the best at anything” as far as today’s standards are concerned.
Fans who have been anticipating the “The Underworld 2” track since the first one ruptured through the underground in 2013 need not have any reservations for lack of lyrical bloodsport.
Reel Wolf lead director Tom Vujcic orchestrated the entire record which pits the late, great Sean Price, Kool G Rap, Havoc, Necro, Chino XL, ILL Bill, Kuniva from D12, Slaine, Ruste Juxx, Johnny Richter, Sabac Red and Kid Fade all in the same arena. And same visual as well.
Vujcic tells HipHopDX shaping both the track and music video were two separate adventures.
“We started assembling it – and the VERY FIRST VERSE we got was Sean Price,” he emphasized. “Which is eerie, since he is last on the song and never got a scene shot.”
As the crew were able to check off each MC off the list in various locations (Havoc, Kid Fade Slaine, Ruste Juxx and Kuniva were shot in Toronto; Chino XL and Johnny Richter out in Cali;
Sabac Red, ILL Bill, Necro in New York; Kool G Rap in the Poconos), Sean P unfortunately passed away and Vujcic says they decided to give him his own dedication within the video.
Based in Toronto, Reel Wolf goes the extra mile to show the world the other side of “The Six,” outside of a handful of universally-known artists. With the new single, they’re launching the album title of the same name to show and prove for the city’s underbelly.
Without further adieu, sink your teeth into “The Underworld 2” video above. The album is also availabe for pre-order the album at the Reel Wolf store.
