Above is the 5 O'Clock Shadowboxers' new video for No Resolution 2, off of their latest EP Broken Clocks. Last time out the gate, the 'Boxers managed to put out the best independent video of 2009 with High Noon, a hip hop crime caper that seemed to be heavily influenced by Tarantino. No Resolution continues to develop the group's film noir thematics, using footage from the classic 50's jury flick 12 Angry Men. Conceptualized by Curly Castro, with production from 5846 Films, the video is significantly higher in concept than what you're likely to find on MTV Hits these days.
The Shadowboxers have made the single available for free over on their bandcamp page, so go cop it!
And while we're on the subject of Shadowboxing, the group recently put out their take on Cannibal Ox's Life's ill. The song's great, but what puts it over the top is Zilla's name dropping of the late, great Drazen Petrovic (RIP!). Peep:
You can read Zilla's thoughts on the song over at Clap Cowards. The artwork for the single, which is absolutely amazing, is from Adam LaMonaca. I've never heard of him before, but I highly recommend that any of you rappers out there looking for a dope album cover should reach out to him. Check it out:
