Grand Killa Con “Who’ll Be First?” ft. Awol One & Eddie K (Official Video)

Posted by TheMayor

Grand Killa Con celebrates the vinyl release of their “52 Rooms” EP (www.artofrec.com) with these visuals for the song “Who’ll Be First?”.  Producer Brycon channels his inner-luddite via this 8-bit banger seemingly inspired by a kush nap in front of an NES console stuck on the Double Dragon pause screen. Furious in style as it is funky for the future shock, the beat challenges the GKC MC Luke Sick, and guests Awol One (Massmen/Shapeshifters/The Cloaks) and Eddie K (Bulletproof Space Travelers/Trunk Drank/Gurp City), to remain stoic and unabashedly ruff, rugged and raw while laughing in the face of an ever-softening, passive-aggressive, so-called “progressive” society. Who’ll be first to catch this beatdown, indeed. The accompanying visuals metaphorically recall a time in the Old Bay Area, where GKC hail from, when the marginalized and unheard made an effort to stick it to the man and baffle the squares at every turn, because life was nothing if you couldn’t do a little action every now and then. “52 Rooms” was released digitally through Megakut Records and can be heard here in its entirety:
