The Video:

If you're not familiar with Pittsburgh, California, rapper A-Wax, it's no fault of his own. The Bay Area spitter has moved over 200,000 units independently, and following a tenure as part of Akon's Konvict Muzik label, he is once again bringing his music to the masses on an independent level with a new album, Everybody Loves Me: Chapter 1, schduled for release on July 17th, via Illburn Records. The album includes features from French Montana, Styles P., Mistah FAB, and more, and today, A-Wax is unveiling the video for Debut single, "Rapper Blood."

A-Wax first released the mp3 for this single a few weeks back, and with the track catching on and becoming a quick fan-favorite, he called on Sharp of Sharp Films to direct the video. Dressed in all red, face shrouded in a matching bandana, the video begins as A-Wax emerges, wiping blood from his hands, draining the excess into a glass dish, before he dips in a paint brush and begins to write the song title on paper. Throughout, the video plays off this theme, mixing grainy video effects and engaging performances shots as A-Wax flips deft wordplay.

The Background:

A lot of rappers make music about the penitentiary. Few can say that they learned their craft while incarcerated. Having emerged after a lengthy stretch in the prison system during his teenage years, A-Wax turned to rap and came up in the game old-fashioned way, selling CDs hand-to-hand and through Mom & Pop stores across the region. The hard work has paid off -- A-Wax has moved over 200,000 units, independently, no small feat, and the accomplishment eventually led to a deal with Akon's Konvict Muzik label. A-Wax and Akon ultimately went their seperate ways, due to creative differences, and now A-Wax is back on the independent grind, with a new album, Everybody Loves Me: Chapter 1. The album, which includes features from French Montana, Styles P., Mistah FAB, and more, will be released July 17th via Illburn Records.
