VIDEO: Ante Meridian – “Nat King Cobra”

Ante Meridian - Nat King CobraLocal hip-hop duo Ante Meridian, aka Rozewood and Mr. Enok, unveiled this dope video last week for “Nat King Cobra,” the first single from their debut full length, Sons of Heaven, which dropped earlier today on Bandcamp. If you’re a fan of buddy cop spoofs, you’re going to love this Will Feagins Jr. directed joint as the twosome play a pair of hard-partying, dope-smoking renegade detectives on the trail of local kingpin Pretty Young Pimpin’ Bitch (yes, that’s his real name). Along the way some familiar hijinks ensue with crooked shakedowns and a double-crossing prostitute all leading up to an epic rooftop brawl and fatal shootout. In a sense the absurd hilarity of the video takes away from the raw force of the track, a menacing hard funk rumbler with a thumping bass line and dramatic synths. But overall this is pretty killer work that is well worth your time. Enjoy.

Ante Meridian will celebrate the release of Sons of Heaven tonight at 529. Supporting them will be G.R.E.A.T. Scott, BIGREC, Phene, Mach Hommy and DJ Nervex. Doors open at 9pm. Admission is $5 and comes with a free download code for the LP.
