Drums and Ammo Compiles a Season of Badass Local Hip-Hop into One Video
Ammbush in Chinatown!
Drums & Ammo is a NorCal hip-hop collective sporting a pretty sweet stable of beatmakers and MCs. We've shown you the group's stuff before, but the it recently released a compilation track of sorts, melding recent music into one grab-bag of badassery. Equal to the music is the video itself: It shows how each producer assembles these innovative beats, then has the various MCs rhyming over them in locales that include S.F.'s Fillmore District and Chinatown. Check it out after the jump -- and grab a a free instrumental album by the crew as well.
A quick guide to the video:
First section: "Speak Up," by producer/MC Ammbush.
Second section: "Go In" by REL (producer) and C-Plus (newcomer Sacramento MC).
Third section: "U Funnystyle" by producer 6Fingers and L.A. MC Bambu.
Fourth section: "Round Me" by producer Al Jieh and local MC DaVinci.
