The Video:

Last week, Phesto Dee, along with fellow Hiero Imperium artists Souls Of Mischief, Casual, and Pep Love, announced their Hiero Imperium Summer Tour 2012. On the tour, which kicks off later this summer, the Hiero crew will perform a mix of classics and new material, of which there is plenty of both, with new albums in 2012 from Tajai, Opio Pep Love, and Casual, in addition to Phesto Dee, who released his long-awaited debut album, Background Check, earlier this year. One of the new cuts from Phesto that fans can surely look forward to catching live is "ChampSwagger," and now, Phesto is excited to release a new visual for the single.

"ChampSwagger," produced by Kev Choice, is one of the standout tracks from Background Check, and fits in well with the grain of the overall album. "When people listen to my album," Phesto has remarked, "I don't think they'll hear any esoteric musicality; I just think it's hip-hop to the core." The video for "ChampSwagger," directed by Casual for his burgeoning video production company Wetfoot Filmworks, conveys just that vibe, a largely solo clip, save the cameos from his Hiero crew, that puts the emphasis on Phesto's fast-flowing lyrics.
