Ran Reed is strong-arming 2017 with the impending release of his new compilation LP, Still Commanding Respect, that he’s promoting today with a double-feature video for standout tracks “Pathetic M.C.’s” and “Doo Doo.”
As they appear on the project, the songs include guest features—Bumpy Knuckles and DJ Modesty, respectively—but the focus in this clip remains on solely on Reed. And rightfully so, because the tri-state area artist served as the project’s primary beat conductor. Not only did he write the super-gutter bars, but he produced the equally grimy instrumentals for both “Pathetic M.C.’s” and “Doo Doo.”
The video is directed by the Last American B-Boy, a multi-talented artist known for his raw approach that typically captures emcees in their element. For Reed, that means holding the camera’s attention while spitting his hard-nosed rhymes.
Check out the double feature video, and go support Ran Reed’s long awaited LP, Still Commanding Respect, which includes features from Kool G Rap, M.O.P. Bumpy Knuckles, Sadat X, U.G. and many more. The LP is now available through iTunes and all major digital retailers and streaming platforms, and can be purchased on CD, exclusively through Fifth Element.
