“if you really need some food, plant them seeds in the earth/plant them ideas and add action to give them birth.”

The hustlegrind is so real.  It ain’t easy, but Atlanta MC/producer Jack Preston affirms that “it’s okay.”  The newly released visual for his latest self-produced single from his upcoming album End Of The Future is a narrative dedicated to the working class, the every(wo)man.  Director Will Feagins Jr. of High Impact Multimedia captures the artist’s every day grind, following him through the streets of East Atlanta.  The message is crystal: We have dreams and lofty aspirations but we still got bills to pay.  We gotta eat but destinies must still be manifested.  Hit play on the video and download the track here.

Living in Atlanta, I’ve come to expect the unexpected.  Rarely do any around the way sightings shock me anymore.  I may be tickled, amused and highly entertained but truly surprised??  Those times are few and far between.  Until one Friday I saw a post on Facebook sharing the time and location of a “guerilla style” jam session.  “3pm. Kebbi Williams and the Wolf Pack.  5 Points Marta train station.”  Are you SERIOUS???

Now, if you’re not familiar with Kebbi Williams, don’t worry (yet).  I just got hip to him when I had a chance to experience his band’s electric performance at Funk Jazz Café a few months ago.  (It’s a crime how they killed that stage.)  But after bearing witness to the glory of live instrumentation, I just had to be in the place when they threw down at the train station.  Kebbi on the saxophone accompanied by his collective of wolves on trumpets, trombones, flutes, tubas, harmonicas, and drums: church.  When I tell you I caught the holy ghost in that space, it’s the gospel truth.  Totally electrifying.
