“It’s a fresh take on a rap video, one that has been sorely missing from the game.” –2DopeBoyz.com
Seasoned emcee Wake Self pays homage to his favorite classic hip-hop artists in “I Still Love Her” from his upcoming album, ‘Malala‘. From Common’s ‘Resurrection‘ & A Tribe Called Quest’s ‘The Low End Theory‘ to De La Soul’s ‘3 Feet High & Rising‘ & Ice Cube’s ‘Death Certificate‘, “I Still Love Her” brilliantly illustrates Wake’s love for hip-hop culture.
“I’m not one of those people who is stuck in the so called ‘Golden Era’ because I do believe great music has been, will be, and is still being made. I feel a deep attachment, however, to classic hip-hop music. I feel like we as a culture need to start recognizing our heroes and teachers like other cultures and music genres do.”
Directed by Phillip Torres (of Explore Media) & animated by Josh Goble, “I Still Love Her” captures the spirit of the Golden Era while Wake lends it a freshness with his yearning for a revolution.
