Ran Reed is strong-arming 2017 with the impending release of his new compilation LP, 'Still Commanding Respect', that he's promoting today with a double-feature video for standout tracks "Pathetic M.C.'s" & "Doo Doo".
As they appear on the project, the songs include guest features—Bumpy Knuckles & DJ Modesty, respectively—but the focus in this clip remains on solely on Reed. And rightfully so, because the tri-state area artist served as the project's primary beat conductor. Not only did he write the super-gutter bars, but he produced the equally grimy instrumentals for both "Pathetic M.C.'s" & "Doo Doo".
The video is directed by the Last American B-Boy, a multi-talented artist known for his raw approach that typically captures emcees in their element. For Reed, that means holding the camera's attention while spitting his hard-nosed rhymes.
Check out the double feature video, and go support Ran Reed's long awaited LP, 'Still Commanding Respect' which includes features from Kool G Rap, M.O.P., Bumpy Knuckles, Sadat X, U.G., & many more. The LP is now available through all major digital retailers & streaming platforms, and can be purchased on CD, exclusively through Fifth Element.
