Published Jul 17, 2012At this year's NXNE, a hip-hop showcase at the Rivoli was cancelled due to concerns of gang violence, but some of those involved with the show responded that the perceived threat was imagined, and complained that hip-hop culture was stereotyped and misunderstood. Now, one of the groups involved, the Antiheroes, have released a statement of their own via a new video for the track "The Rebels (Listen Up)."
A press release describes the video as "hardly what viewers would expect from blacklisted fare," with the overall impression being one of "fun and energy." Certainly, there are plenty of good vibes in this upbeat rap cut, which features D-Sisive and was produced by Rich Kidd.
"The Rebels (Listen Up)" comes from the Antiheroes' album This Is FreeDUMB, which is available for free from Bandcamp.
