Video: Raplords (@DanaCoppafeel @SpeakEasyMilw @Mammyth) feat. Haz Solo (@HazXTheWorld) – 2 MPH

Summer’s almost gone, but Milwaukee’s Raplords (emcees Dana Coppafeel & SPEAK Easy + producer Mammyth) are bringing the heat back with “2 MPH”, the first single and video from their upcoming album, ‘#Raplords‘. The song features guest emcee Haz Solo & puts a fresh spin on an old-school jam, sampling DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’s classic “Summertime”.

The video is shot day-in-life style in the City of Milwaukee. Just like The Fresh Prince’s original video, the guys hit local landmarks & ride through town in lawn chairs on top of a flatbed tow truck. To add something new to the concept, Raplords called on & designer Xavier Ruffin to animate the lyrical stories told by Dana, SPEAK, & Haz. They also partnered with local moped army, Cream City Cranks, outfitting their machines with GoPro® cameras to add another unique viewpoint of Milwaukee’s neighborhoods.

Coppafeel said:

“We had a lot of fun with the video. You can’t go wrong with Pabst, Xavier Ruffin animations, moped gangs, & The Fresh Prince!!!”

SPEAK Easy said:

“We got to spend time with a lot of people in across the city making this one. Our tow truck driver, Slick, was extra cool to hang out with. You’re getting authentic Milwaukee & it’s a good time.”

This laid-back track is made for driving slow with the windows rolled down. Enjoy the last days of the summertime as you cruise at “2 MPH“…So everybody sees you!!!
