I wrote a review last week about Teacher Preachers new ‘Tales Of An Apalachian King’, and today the Georgia rapper published his new video for “Taking Backroads”, and I really like it.
The song’s great. it’s one of my favorites from ‘Apalachian King’ and it features the Black Betties. It’s a hot song with good rapping and a great hook from a couple of pretty ladies that really seal the vibe of the song. Teacher Preacher even gives a shout-out to some of his kinfolk in my neck of the woods.
I love the visual setting that re-up (the company that produced the video) pulled of with the perfect setting for the sound of the track. Hanging around, riding in the back of the truck, that’s the kind of thing we can identify with if we’re not city-bread, and the feel was captured perfectly in the video. It’s even got another HHM favorite along for the ride in Boondock Kingz. These guys are all signed to the D. Thrash label, so check for some great music coming from all of them soon.
