Righteous, a Canadian MC/CEO of Taot Recordings enlists Ruste Juxx and DJ Mercilless for his video “What is.” The single serves as the first release from his new album ‘and the DEVIL is.’
The video immediately kicks off with DJ Mercilless showing off his signature cuts and scratches while Righteous is crate-digging, which is rather suiting for the theme of the video. What is an emcee if he can’t rap, what is a DJ if he can’t scratch, resonates throughout the track and underlines the lyrical mastermind of Righteous and Ruste Juxx who define the role of an MC and DJ. They pay homage to authentic Hip Hop and the culture without sounding dated so all schools of Hip Hop can embrace it. Watch the video and stream the album below.
Stream the album ‘and the DEVIL is’ below which features AKX of Righteous Revolution, B Fox, Kool G Rap, Rashad Roulett, Thirsty McGurk, Van Glorious, Ikee Mula, and the late Faith Walker with production by DJ Mercilless, Ear 2 That Beat, and bytman.
