'The Microphone' Cancelled

A sequel to ‘The Microphone’ music video was in the works; a semi script/concepts was nearly completed. The project, directed, edited and filmed by Aristadoe, was to include the previous ensemble cast: Jonathan Pagan, Miguel Chandon Sánchez, Grify, Frado, Hecdosage, Gleams, Ra Vegas, Aristadoe among others. Although the entire cast came off in terms of performances, I decided to go in a different direction instead, due to complications. Thus, the sequel to ‘The Microphone’ video has been officially cancelled. But rest assure, I still have some interesting projects in store, so stay tuned.

Thanks to all who participated, and the viewers as well.

 

Ra Vegas & Aristadoe team up on the ‘Stay Schemin’ remix, which was originally recorded by Rick Ross. Although the beat remains the same, it was slightly formatted which complements their lyrical style.The chorus takes a twist with an overlapped approach, which not only shows creativity but authenticity as well. The music video was filmed by Aristadoe along with Amandy exchange, on the grimy streets of  Canal street in NYC. You can watch the trailer of the Double Impact Duo by clicking the picture below.

In the late mid 80’s, my oldest sister and her boyfriend had taken me to a park known as High-bridge park, in the uptown district of Washington Heights NY. Although the name was known by many local residents, I was introduced to the park by a name that any 9-year-old kid would find amazing. Spider Man village, that’s what they called it due to the overpopulated spiders crawling down them woods, and a slanted wall that connected to the blue bridge. The wall was so slanted, that if you walked down hill you had to skip steps, on some gravitation. Yet, walking up was more difficult, it was like climbing a building or at least it felt that way. Later this park became my playground, hangout, among other interesting things. I remember saying that, “one day I would like to shoot a video down here,” being that the park was like a passage way to the woods you see in them scary flicks.

Check out my video ‘The Microphone’ shot in Spider Man Village ft-artist Hecdosage, Gleams, Ra, and myself Aristadoe, along with several amazing actors like, Jonathan Pagan, Miguel ‘Chandon’ Sanchez, Grify and Chris Ravia. The track, ‘The Microphone’ was recorded, mixed, and the cuts by Frado.
