With the release of the music video for Minneapolis lyricist Greg Grease‘s latest single Basement Soul comes an obvious lesson: when a mysterious basement ghost plays a rapper’s record you don’t call Ghostbusters, but instead dance like no one’s watching. You should consider that tidbit just one of life’s many lessons. On top of serving as a unique visual, the CKFD & River Life Media-directed music video for Basement Soul also brings out the double meaning in the record’s title. As expected the production on Basement Soul is heavy on the soul (not of the ghoulish variety) thanks to Alejandro P and Bobby Raps’ use of keys and nostalgic scratches. Basement Soul serves as the latest entry in Grease’s Cornbread’s Coming series, which precedes the fall release of the spitter’s Cornbread, Earl & G project.
