The Song:

Early in 2012, Man Bites Dog Records released what may be one of the best producer compilation albums in hip-hop this year, Kount Fif & R.M.L.'s The Swashbuckler Vol. 1: The Viking Wars. Standing alongside Stu Bangas & Vanderslice's Diggaz With Attitude, also released via Man Bites Dog Records, The Swashbuckler, with production mostly by Kount Fif and R.M.L., has a feature list that includes some of underground hip-hop's most revered talents, names like Copywrite, Roc Marciano, Torae, Planet Asia, Nine, Royce Da 5'9, and Heltah Skeltah, amongst dozens of others. Now, as the year winds down, Man Bites Dog is presenting the latest visual from the album, for the song "Arkansas Toothpick," which features Roc Marciano and Jason Rose.

Directed by R.M.L., the video features an aggressive breaking-and-entering courtesy of Roc, who busts into a project apartment following a blunt-smoke-filled backseat performance of his verse. For the second verse, the visual switches up, focused on Jason Rose as he works his way through a robot build, an interesting parallel to the role he played in the recent MHz Legacy "Mechanical Me" video. And while the two scenes seem divergent, it's Kount Fif's beat, a haunting, string- and keys-sampling affair that brings the track together.

The Background:

Passionate about music and with an ear for discovering great talent, RML formed Man Bites Dog Records in 2005 in Northern Virginia, a few short miles from Washington DC. In an area dominated by GoGo Music, it was the goal of MBDR to offer an avenue for local hip-hop talent. The label quickly grew beyond the confines of the local scene, however, as MBDR began to release project from the likes of Copywrite, Vast Aire, and others. Since then, it has been MBDR's goal to sign artists who create classic music - music that stands the test of time - in genres ranging from underground New York hip-hop to funky pop. Currently, MBDR's roster includes Killah Priest, Copywrite, Vast Aire, MHz Legacy, Jakki da Motamouth, Stu Bangas & Vanderslice, Esoteric, Wais P, Bronze Nazareth, Crimison Gods, Kount Fif, Empuls, Last Bison, Jason Rose, Brink, Red Mud, Sinista Daniro, Dom, Jay Notes, and The Swashbuckler.
