The Video:

Last week, following a string of singles that featured the likes of Big Rube, BJ The Chicago Kid, and Nikkiya, Full |REBEL| Jacket finally unveiled their new EP, the REBEL EP, offering it to fans for free download via their website. and Bandcamp. The EP is brimming with feel-good country rap tunes, jazz-inflected thumpers, and aspirational bangers, and the response has been great – the Phoenix duo just recently won the ear of local DJ Bootleg Kev, appearing on his hometown radio show. Just prior to the release of the REBEL EP, Full |REBEL| Jacket released the mp3 for "Bacon" and now they're unveiling an official video for the song.

"Bacon" is easily the REBEL EP's most aspirational cut, one that when Full |REBEL| Jacket was asked to explain the message behind the track, they replied simply, "Grind hard." For the video, Full |REBEL| Jacket wanted to embody that same feel, and so, while the duo's previous videos have all contained strong narratives, the video for "Bacon" boils the track's energy to its essence. "It's just raw," says Q of the video. "It's less scripted than our previous videos," adds G. "It really captures the emotion of the song." As with all of Full |REBEL| Jacket's videos, the clip is self-directed, and it's been a conscious effort by the duo to shoot and create all of their own treatments. "We take pride," says G, "in controlling our own destiny."

The Background:

Like Big Boi and André 3000, Pimp C and Bun B, Full |REBEL| Jacket is proof that when it comes to hip-hop, opposites attract. Formed in 2009 after a parking lot freestyle revealed that the two differing-skilled rappers had a chemistry, the duo of G, a Dallas, Texas native and rhyme partner Q, an Alaskan transplant, released their first two mixtapes under the name American Negro before reconfiguring themselves as Full |REBEL| Jacket during the making of their 2010 Loose Leaf series, a weekly installment of recorded freestyles the two compiled into a release. Packed with a moniker that fit the duo's mysterious aesthetic and inventive voice, Full |REBEL| Jacket began work on this year's the REBEL EP, the first project to find G and Q contributing their own beats and instrumentation to each track, and the result is Full |REBEL| Jacket's most concise and powerful project yet. The free EP, which includes features from Big Rube, BJ The Chicago Kid, Nikkiya, Chalie Boy, and more, will be released September 3rd.
