Mr. Criminal “They Know” Video in Japan and Studio Footage
Silverlake’s own Mr. Criminal dropped a brand new video for his next track, “They Know”. Criminal shot the video from his tour in Japan earlier this year along with Mr. Capone-e and their Hi Power Entertainment label. The video also shows behind the scenes footage of Criminal in the lab making new music and samples some unheard tracks that bump too. I’m looking forward to what’s coming this year from Mr. Criminal and HPG, and fans on the West Coast should demand his music on the radio! The video goes hard and shows how much West Coast rap has made an impact in Japan.
Japan has embraced West Coast music more than any other part of the world outside of California, and the footage of the enthusiastic mobs of fans from Japan is evidence. It trips me out to see hip hop fans in Japan rocking West Coast gear and repping like eses from Cali. Nevertheless, I have a lot of respect for West Coast hip hop fans in the Far East and think more collaborations between artists there and back home should be happening.
