El Gant (feat. GGDT) – “Five One Eight” (Official Video) @ElGant

‘Beast Academy’ (iTunes Pre-Order): http://bit.ly/1sQiazT

To the residents of Albany, New York, 518 is more than just a number. For some, the three digit code is their community and the place in which they call home. Braggadocios rhymes and 40s aside, “Five One Eight” is a throwback to El Gant’s humble beginnings at Suny Albany, where he mastered his craft with the pen and pad, more so outside the classroom. As El Gant and Giant Gorilla Dog Thing (GGDT) get busy over this JOAT (Jack of all Trades) produced banger, they give us an insight into the good and the bad of their upbringings. With shots of Albany scattered throughout the video, it’s impossible not to get that feeling of nostalgia for your own hood. “Five One Eight” will be featured on El Gant’s upcoming LP, ‘Beast Academy,’ which becomes available via CD and digital download on June 10th.

Kool Keith Head Man

Kool Keith Head Man (aka Tony Richards)

I’ve been calling dude Kool Keith for a long time now…and then he had to show up at his own B-day party wearing a Kool Keith outfit. The picture had to be taken. Outtakes below.
