In the "seen it all" world of hip-hop, where fans stand with arms crossed and an "impress me" look on their face, it's tough to grab people's attention. That said, Duece Bug's latest video, which is for "Give The Drummer Some," features something most hip-hop fans haven't seen before – an emcee rapping while playing the drums.
This is a skill Duece Bug has been honing for a number of years, and it makes for some really interesting visuals. It's extremely rare for bands to have a drummer be their vocalist (with a few noted exceptions, like Genesis), and in hip-hop, where we expect emcees to be all over the place to move the crowd, Duece Bug is one of the only ones who tackles that task from a seated position.
Check out the Edwin Escobar directed clip, which also features DJ Connect and Kenny Cash, as Duece Bug looks to bring something new to hip-hop.
