Posted ten days ago, the first video (that we know of) by Detroit rapper Tone Pérignon deserves a look and a listen. On the YouTube page we're informed that the video "is a brief glimpse into Tone's consciousness," and that "the title comes from one of the seven Hindu chakras, the solar plexus representing fire and the power of transformation." The strobe-o-rific video was directed by Tone with Jordan Reed; the track mixed and produced by HollaGrafik at Hollagrafik Studios.
I didn't know this artist's work before today, despite the fact that he's been prolific the last few years (to judge by his Soundcloud), and I look forward to digging in to the other tracks soon. Detroit has so much talent; it's hard to keep up! He's smart enough to just send along one hype paragraph, and here it is:
Tone Pérignon is an artist, musician, and poet from Detroit, Michigan. Just like the fine champagne, the Pérignon lifestyle is that of luxury — an element Tone seems to capture in every crafted rhyme. Tone embraces Hip-Hop culture and always incorporates the art of sampling when considering production.
