Common Market – Escaping Arkham (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 25th, 2009 by Hyphen

Off the brand new Common Market digital release, Winter’s End EP, here’s the MTVu debut of RA Scion & Sabzi’s “Escaping Arkham.”  With Zia at the directorial helm, you already know the visuals are going to be flawless.  He’s really one of the most underrated directors in the game nationally…it won’t be long until people are flying him all around the country to do their videos.

Sidenote:  mobbing down to SXSW with a lot of Seattle folks, RA and Sabzi included, was one of my highlights of last week.  We have a ton of talent in the town and if you aren’t aware, you’re sleeping.  Plus, everyone is cool as hell…

Now this is hilarious.  Fellow Massline member Ra Scion saw Geologic & Sabzi’s “Coffee and Snow” video and had to respond.  He linked up with tthe original director, Zia, to record this dope sequel to the Scholars’ video.  Comedy…and still doper than what most artists try to create with their official videos.

Blue Scholars – Coffee and Snow (video)

(I recommend watching in high quality here)

While some of us were making completely pointless videos during the Seattle snow, the homies Geo and Sabzi were killing time making a better song and video than most artists do with huge budgets.  Seriously, are you kidding me?  About 95% of the artists out there wish they could make something this ill.  The clip was directed by Saba’s brother, Zia, who continues to churn out some of the coolest visuals I’ve seen recently.  Very dope.
