Here's a new video from Michigan emcee Ro Spit for his song "I've Arrived." Considering how much love I gave video guru Gerard Victor for his stellar work in 2010, it's no surprise that he directed the video for this tune as well. Based on the scenery, it looks like they shot this on the edge of Mexicantown if that's La Gloria Bakery in the background like I think it is.
This song comes out on the Concepts: Selektions Mixtape from Frank The Butcher and Statik Selektah which drops on January 25th. Read the full mixtape description after the jump.
Frank The Butcher & Statik Selektah have joined forces on "Concepts: Selektions". This mixtape is inspired by seminal classic 90's mixtapes like DJ Doo Wop's "Live 95" & Tony Touch's "50 MCs". Frank The Butcher worked with Statik on "selecting" some of his most classic beats and revisiting them with new emcees and new lyrics. The tape features veterans like DJ Doo Wop, DJ Clark Kent, Freeway, and Consequence-- underground favorites like Detroit's Black Milk and La Coka Nostra's Ill Bill-- while also featuring lyricists like Curt@!n$, Willie The Kid, Termanology, Maffew Ragazino Sr., Ro Spit -- and more -- all featured over Statik Selektah's production.
