T-BRUIN / SUN GAZING

“TALKIN’ LIKE THE BLACK NAPOLEAN HILL” -TB

ONE OF MY GOOD HOMEYS SENT ME THIS RECORD ABOUT A WEEK AGO AND I’VE BEEN BLASTING THIS ON MY EVENING WALKS WITH MY SIDEKICK GOLDENDOODLE. HE’S FUCKING WITH IT TOO. CENTERING BACK.. T-BRUIN IS A JEDI (ALSO JUST FINISHED BINGING OBI-WAN). WHICH MADE ME THINK A LOT ABOUT THE STATE OF HIP-HOP LATELY. JEDI’S AND SITH.

HIP-HOP QUITE LITERALLY SAVED MY LIFE. I IMAGINE T-BRUIN WOULD SAY THE SAME. I HAVEN’T TALKED TO HIM, BUT IT’S VERY EVIDENT THAT HE’S A TRUE STUDENT OF THE GAME. THE CADENCE, THE WAY HE BOUNCES HIS BARS OFF THE BASS A CERTAIN WAY.. I COULD GO ON. THE VISUAL TO “SUN GAZING”, THE LEAD TRACK OFF OF HIS RECENTLY RELEASED EP “STUCK ON EARTH”, INTIMATELY UNPEELS THE LAYERS OF THE NYC-MC. THINK OF EARLY COLE, KOTA THE FRIEND, & PHONTE AS FAR AS LYRICS AND DELIVERY ARE CONCERNED. PRODUCED BY MATT MARTIN, “SUN GAZING” POSSESSES A CERTAIN TASTE OF VICTORY WITHIN THE SLICE N’ DICED SOUL SAMPLE ON TOP OF SOME REALLY SOLID PERCUSSION WORK.

ALSO FEATURED IN THE VISUAL IS T-BRUIN’S SIGNIFICANT OTHER, AS WELL AS HIS SOON TO BE BORN CHILD. PEOPLE ALWAYS THROW THE WORD “REAL” AROUND AS HAPHAZARDOUSLY AS THE INQUIRY “HOW ARE YOU?”.. OR PERHAPS EVEN MORE EGREGIOUS.. OUR DISEGNUINE RESPONSE.. “I’M GOOD!”. THAT BEING SAID, THIS VISUAL IS AS REAL AS IT GETS. ALSO, IT WAS SHOT BEAUTIFULLY BY PATRICK DOWNER, WHO MANAGED TO GET SOME STUNNING DRONE SHOTS OF THE NYC SKYLINE AT NIGHT. TWO THUMBS UP. SO YEAH GANG.. I DON’T WANT TO REVEAL EVERYTHING.. GO RUN IT UP!
