Tomorrow, via its MySpace page, Waco-based hip-hop collective Strange Fruit Project, which has about a bajillion impressive collaborations to its name, not the least of which includes Erykah Badu and Little Brother, will release a new, free-to-download EP entitled M.A.S.K. (short for Making Art Sound Kool). Last week via Twitter, though, Strange Fruit producer/emcee Symbolic One leaked for download the EP's lead single, "Crash," and, with it, posted the above video.
It's well worth a watch. Not just because the song's legit, but also because the video is like a real life take on Fallout 3 (if that game took place in the backroads of Deep Ellum).
