Atlanta-based MC goddess Sa-Roc released a new video this week for her song "Them Vimana Jets." But it's not the video — shot by producer Sol Messiah — as much as it is Sa-Roc's lyrics that made me wonder what she meant when referring to her "gold Vimana jet."
Was this some archaic mythological concept she was refashioning? Or some sort of modern-day metaphor for ancient space travel? Apparently, a little of both.
After you check out her video (above), watch the clip below from a History Channel doc about ancient India's Vimana Jets — fueled by mercury and gyroscopes, and controlled by the mind.
Before jetting on her West Coast tour, Sa-Roc will unfurl her own sacred text tonight (Fri., July 6) in a Wu-Tang Tribute Edition. Featuring Skinny DeVille of Nappy Roots, Ekundayo, Big Rec of the 5ive, and Starchile. $15. 10 p.m. Sound Table, 483 Edgewood Ave. (Flier below jump).
Beck and Alabama Shakes...that's about it. I'm sure there's an unknown or two I would…
Well, this years Music Midtown sucks!
I'm pretty sure he was 19.
3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring…
