Rite Hook & Chris Rivers – The Motions

Travel to Hip-Hop’s underground with Rite Hook and Chris Rivers in their new video for “The Motions,” their fiery collaboration f Leedz Edutainment’s recently released compilation, Eastern Standard.

 

Boston (Hook) meets the Bronx (Rivers) in these visuals from Myster DL, Ill Mannered Films and Photography, whose direction gets to the root what “The Motions” is all about. Lyrically, it’s a snarling middle-finger to anyone trying to bring you down and keep you beneath where you deserve to be in life. It’s fitting, then, that DL plays with the lighting and incorporates visual trickery (the kaleidoscope effect) to capture that same vibe in this video.

 

As you’ll see in the clip, both emcees travel in and out the light as they deliver their ten-personal rhymes over The Arcitype’s production, which bumps, rattles, and swings beneath the surface. Hip-Hop heads looking for that raw will certainly have a new favorite track in “The Motions,” which happens to be one many standout cuts on Eastern Standard. If you consider yourself a fan the culture, you better not be snoozing on this compilation that also boasts Michael Christmas, Ransom, Slaine, Chris Orrick, STL GLD, Spose, K.A.A.N., and many others.
