Coinciding with the growing popularity of the NFL in the UK, Hip Hop legends M1 dead prez & Bonnot drop an American Football-themed music video for their track “Offense Defense“. This follows M1 dead prez & Bonnot’s recent BBC One interview & “Fire In The Booth Legends” with Charlie Sloth & a premiere by the world-renowned tastemaker The Source Magazine which gained further international notoriety through a feud between Eminem & it’s former co-owner Benzino.
“Offense Defense” combines Bonnot’s heavy, aggressive beat with M1 dead prez’s trademark snarling tone & relentless vocal flow. The video, which was filmed in Italy, features M1 dead prez & Bonnot dressed in Bergamo Lions (3-time European Champions & 12-time Italian champions) apparel. This release happens to come at a time where American Football has become increasingly popular throughout the UK and becoming a regular topic in it’s media, with the last match selling out Wembley Stadium & The Telegraph describing it as “one of the most engaging sports you’ll ever see”. The popularity of the sport has reached the point where London Mayor Boris Johnson is considering a London NFL franchise. “We yearn for an NFL Franchise, we will roll out the red carpet, we will strew your way with petals”.
M1 dead prez & Bonnot are also due to be interviewed by DJ Semtex on BBC 1 Xtra & will be premiered by TBC. This announcement comes right at the off-time of one of the most watched sporting events around the world, the combination of the NFL season & 2015 Super Bowl broadcasted on Channel 4 & Sky Sports with later games taking place at Wembley Stadium from 10.4.2015 for the next season.
