Bias the Black chills on a ghostly vibe

Posted By on Wed, May 16, 2012 at 10:56 AM

In his first solo video for "The Chill," burgeoning underground rapper Bias the Black comes across with of a bit of an awkward lyrical delivery that doesn't quite sync up with the song's instrumental flow. But as the words unfold it soon becomes clear that the man who's rapping is a ghost, a former hit man who hasn't quit figured out that he's been betrayed. ... Although he's on to something.

It's an interesting way to frame a concept such as this, even though the supernatural angle might not be immediately clear, especially if you haven't watched the trailer for his upcoming EP, Noir: Phantom. In light of these things, the title starts making sense.

Bias the Black is part of Glenn Saddler's FartherOut crew, and if the look and feel of this video seem familiar, it's because the director, Kyle Drew, also put together Saddler's "Fais Gaffe Se Tois," which arrived last week.

Bias the Black plays the Noir: Phantom release party (hopefully) at the Beatlanta house on Friday, May 18, with Glenn Saddler, Richelle Brown, aka Cornbread, and Illmont. Free. 9:30 p.m. 197 Howell Drive.
