Song Title: Black Magnum (REMIX)
Song Produced by: Dan Johns
Video Directed by: The Hunch Punch Champ
Family biz, like we passed the flow on to our kids.
Video Description: Brotherhood is cool again. Black masculinity is cool again. Family first is officially cool again. If you let the Divine Suns tell it, it never went out of style. So, for the remix to the staccato-hooked Black Magnum, (original on Chaos Theory, remix on inCOREporated) crew love and family ties are on full display.
The Hunch Punch Champ makes his solo directorial debut by keeping things simple and precise. The settings— inauspicious and unpretentious: basketball courts, stairs, and city squares. The shots— intentionally modest back-to-back rotations that seem like subliminal shout-outs to the buddy cop/comedy genre of the 80’s. The content: three pairs of emcees reppin their respective crews and/or cities, passing the torch to each other like the dutchie of Musical Youth. Magnum Opus, Black Box, and Divine Suns.
The Suns make it abundantly clear that they will always be talking about and speaking from Hip Hop. DJ Stylz cuts the record with his fingernail. Akshun and FACE The Truth are agile and seasoned, passing the baton to Dan Johns and Plex Long with the greatest of ease. Then there’s ANON The Griot and The Hunch Punch Champ sharing the spotlight with a boom box, sons, and nephews. No façade. Just real-life rap.
The remix even pays tribute to the original by cutting in scenes of Plex Long running like the best-dressed track star ever, Jarian Rich as the cool other guy, and Diligent; playing either Vincent or Jules (you pick), from the Pulp Fiction inspired video.
