Canadian emcee Righteous enlists Ruste Juxx and DJ Mercilless for his new single/video “What Is.” The track serves as the first release from his new project titled ‘and the DEVIL is…’
DJ Mercilless kicks off the video with his mastery of cuts and scratches while Righteous begins to dig in the crates. Through witty punchlines and descriptive wordplay, he embodies the definition of Hip Hop, an emcee, and a DJ. Both verses, from Righteous and Ruste Juxx, represent authentic Hip Hop and pays homage and respect to the culture, without sounding dated. This is a must-listen/watch for upcoming Hip Hop artists. Watch the video and stream the album below.
Stream the album ‘and the DEVIL is’ below which features AKX of Righteous Revolution, B Fox, Kool G Rap, Rashad Roulett, Thirsty McGurk, Van Glorious, Ikee Mula, and the late Faith Walker with production by DJ Mercilless, Ear 2 That Beat, and bytman.
