Michael “Don Miguel” McManus, the multitalented producer & musician from New York, is coming off the release of his debut producer album, the impressive ‘Waiting For Carmine‘ featuring the likes of Guilty Simpson, Blacastan, ST 2 Lettaz, Rapsody, & more. He sat down with Streets Connect to premiere the new video for “FVCK IT” featuring Monsignor Ghost & Bonez off his collaboration ‘LDNYC‘ with SamueL, and do a new interview regarding music & his upcoming projects – including an upcoming release with Heems (of Das Racist).
Speaking on the video, Don Miguel shares:
“This video was shot last year while SamueL was in New York for the second time and we had just finished tracking the album. We chose this song because we thought it would be cool to do it in the style of a cypher, since we had two other rappers on the song. We used one location in Long Island where the kids from my neighborhood used to drink before we could get into bars, this kind of wooded area we used to call “the wasteland”. The second location was a place called Centerville which is like an artist house where people in bands live and work out of, that’s where SamueL was staying. The third location was actually the warehouse where the album art and merchandise for ‘Waiting For Carmine’ was produced. The video was shot by our good friend Sean Ageman of Washed Up Media.”
