Quite the unique video from Statik Selektah as he grabs Freddie Gibbs and Big K.R.I.T. to film the video for “Play The Game” while all three were at A3C last month. True story, I exited out of my Internet browser three times before realizing my computer wasn’t going haywire. So as a fair warning, while watching the opening seconds of said visual, it’s not your computer, it’s the way video was edited. A dope idea indeed once you realize its intentions; pure, choppy, unadulterated frustration prior to that however.
This reminds me though. Krizzle and Gibbs should do more work together – i.e. where they both rap. Now who’s to say they haven’t and these mythical records have yet to be released, but “Play The Game” is evidence that with the correct production, these two contradicting and unique styles make for a beautiful traffic jam of tunes. Unfortunately, K.R.I.T. likely won’t because of Freddie’s horrific choice in football teams. Yeah, that’s right, Fred. I just went there.
Oh, and before I forget, shout out to TSS’ own Raj for his appearance in the video.
