Termanology’s Latest Video Is A Dope Rap Reminder That Crack Is Wack
Termanology is a well-established MC endorsed by the likes of key players in Hip-Hop such as DJ Premier, Bun B, the late Sean Price, Pete Rock, and boundless of others. The 1982 co-founder’s musical credits surpass a decade with over 30 projects and sold out tours.
The Lawrence, Massachusetts native began his career in 2003 with his very first mixtape, Hood Politics. The mixtape attracted significant attention that led to the production of six more volumes. Termanology’s come-up is rather unique and thoroughly respected by his music peers. He dove in not only as an artist, but also as publicist, manager, street-team captain, and promoter. Term recalled in a June interview with Weekly Rap Gods, “I didn’t know anything about the music industry, I was just hungry. I was pressing up CDs, tapes, and vinyl with my own money. I was putting up thousands of stickers with my own street team, doing hundreds of local shows and showing up 30 deep to all of them.”
That hunger has carried out with Term’s career and is evident on his latest release, Bad Decisions. “Crack Kills” is the third visual released by Termanology from the album. The video depicts a younger Term’ as a street hustler mixed with drugs and “bad decisions.” He delivers a descriptive tale of hustling, estranged family members, and “being raised by the goons.” The lyrical imagery cleverly epitomizes his ability and dedication to cook up music, sell it to masses and remain high in demand.
Although crack cocaine may no longer be the drug of choice in the streets, the single with the D.I.T.C.-sounding beat (courtesy of Shortfyuz) has two timeless messages: 1. Stay off of hard drugs. 2. Dope Hip-Hop is timeless.
Bad Decisions includes features from Raekwon, Conway, Smif-N-Wessun, Statik, The Beatnuts, and Erick Sermon just to name a few.
