Right up above us there is the video for "Say You Love Me," a song by local electro-rapper thePhantom*. It features guest spots from CES Cru and a chorus sung by Leigh Gibbs, plus cameos from a bunch of local hip-hop figures. Also, pretty sure that's Mayor Sly James' troublemaking son, Kyle, walking down the hotel hallway with a Budweiser in his hand. Nice image rehabilitation, there, Kyle!
In other hip-hop-related news, Top City/Lawrence rapper Stik Figa is expected to drop his latest, Choosy Moms Choose Stik, sometime in the next couple of months. He lately teased a few tracks from it. Download "Self Esteem" (produced by Team Bear Club dude Morri$) here. And get "Slave Masters," which frames Stik's rhymes in sparser, more percussive beats than we're used to hearing from him, here. Feelin' it.
