Bun B & Everlast Join Slaine & Termanology On A DJ Premier Production (Video)
UPDATE: Less than one week after the audio released, Slaine and Termanology’s DJ Premier-produced title track featuring Bun B (UGK) and Everlast (House Of Pain) comes to video. Directed by John Columbo, the visual is built around seamless cuts (despite two distinct locations) and in-your-face bars on Preemo drums and scratches:
OCTOBER 6 STORY: Today sees the release of Slaine and Termanology’s Anti-Hero album. The two Massachusetts veteran MCs (both close Statik Selektah collaborators) welcome a host of friends and family to the Brick/ST. Records LP. Still, the biggest song may be the title cut. DJ Premier produced the track, complete with his aggressive scratching.
Preemo co-signed Term’ and Slaine early in their careers. Ten years ago last week, he laced Slaine’s Special Teamz squad with “Main Event.” Among multiple looks for Termanology, one half of Gang Starr supplied “How We Rock” in ’08. That Politics As Usual video single featured Bun B, marking the first union between Premier and Bun (both Texas natives). It seems appropriate that in ’17, on “Anti-Hero” Bun B (one of Termanology’s biggest support systems) and Everlast step in. Ev’ co-founded La Coka Nostra, the group that would help talk MC/actor Slaine over the top in Hip-Hop. As expected, the song is hard-nosed lyrics about unlikely rappers becoming heroes on the mic. Previously, Slaine and Termanology dropped a video for “Land Of The Lost.” Term’ already confirmed that a video is coming for this cut.
Earlier this year, the House Of Pain front-man linked with Sick Jacken (Psycho Realm) and former Rhyme Syndicate homie Divine Styler for War Porn Industries. The trio dropped a star-studded mixtape. Bun B is at work on his own solo album, Bernard. Big K.R.I.T. is reportedly overseeing the music direction.
