Souls Of Mischief’s Ghetto Superhero Causes Electric Company Flashbacks (Lyric Video)
Lyric videos are all fine and good, but not all of them are from artists who really hold lyrics in high honor. Souls Of Mischief have over 23 years playing with words, using them to move crowds and give Hip-Hop’s perception of Oakland Hip-Hop a facelift.
“Ghetto Superman” from next week’s There Is Only Now (August 26), is a bit whimsical—something Tajai, Opio, Phesto, and A-Plus have always been. But this animated lyric video feels straight out of 1970s “The Electric Company,” with Adrian Younge kickin’ that ill percussion to fit it.
After the group dusts off the chorus, wait for the super-powerful rappin’ to kick in.
