Scheme – Respect the Art (Video)

blame it on Shake January 18, 2010


New visuals off Scheme’s 2009 release, The Manifesto EP.

For the “Respect the Art” video we brought it back home to Chicago. Scheme’s first video “Chicano” represented his home away from home, this one here represents where he was born and raised. Mostly shot in the neighborhood Scheme grew up in, the video is filled with nostalgic images, familiar faces, and iconic Chicago sites. Scheme’s purpose for both song and video was to express that “no matter how you choose to portray your craft, all I ask is that you respect the art.”

Back in July Scheme released the a capellas and instrumentals of the EP. Fellow Chicago artist Rashid Hadee took the time to remix the project, which you can grab after the jump.
