Walking on a tight rope, trying to get across.
Back in August of last year, emcee Musab and producer Ink Well joined forces as MInk and released a project called Intellectual Property. True to its name, the album prompted deep thought with a sense of permanence as the duo spoke to the waking face of American consciousness with a jazz’d up record that’s both distinct and powerful.
Today, they revisit the LP with a video for “Tight Rope,” which pairs Musab alongside longtime friend and fellow Rhymesayer, Slug of the almighty Atmosphere.
“Right when we began writing for ‘Tight Rope’ we knew this was the song we were gonna have Slug be apart of. It all came together organically, including the video,” Musab says. “Shooting while we were on Atmosphere’s ‘Welcome to Colorado Tour’ made it easy to capture the vibe we needed and then transfer it to a visual piece of art.”
