Termanology, Styles P & Sheek Louch Bring Their B.I.G. Dreams to Life (Video)
Just ten days after the presidential election, Termanology will be releasing More Politics, which will include appearances from Bun B, Kxng Crooked, Saigon, Your Old Droog, and Joey Bada$$ in addition to production from Q-Tip, Just Blaze, Statik Selektah, Hi-Tek, Nottz, and the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League. In some ways, forthcoming LP serves as a follow-up to his 2008 debut, Politics As Usual, which which also featured Bun B, Hi-Tek, and Nottz. Another returning guest appearance comes in the form of Sheek Louch, who joined Term on 2008’s “Drugs Crime Gorillaz,” and who now accompanies his LOX brother Styles P in the video for More Politics‘s Buckwild-produced “I Dream B.I.G.”
With Coogi sweaters and t-shirts emblazoned with images of Biggie and his lyrics, the three MCs are clearly paying homage to the Notorious B.I.G., but the sound and flows of the track are entirely their own. Sporting cameos from Jadakiss, Chris Rivers, Buckwild, and Statik Selektah, the video is simple in its concept but is a fitting tribute to New York, with the panorama shots, industrial buildings, and corner stores that remain 20 years after Biggie’s death. But beyond its thematics, the song and the video are in fact reflections of the aspirations of the three rappers who, in their own respective ways, have gone from “it was all a dream” to “sky is the limit.”
The video is directed by Myster DL.
More Politics arrives on November 18.
