The song embodies what hardcore rap should sound like. Driving instrumental, fierce word play and delivery, and industry crushing subject matter. Produced by Delta engineer Vini Vegas. Shot and Filmed at the now demolished "Silos" of El paso, Texas. Rawger North and Double Scope films captured a piece of El Paso art and history with this venom spitting track.
In 2015 Rawger North was offered a non-music related job offer in the beautiful state of North Carolina along with his now deceased brother, Stephen North, and cousin Zakkary Medina. The song was written in the both of their company and at one time had Stephen's verse set to open the song. Regrettably neither of them got to see the completion of this record. The video and song is dedicated to them and their time spent at his Auntie's house aka "The Uncle Junction". Shot by local Asheville, NC film legend Andrew Andersen. "He truly captured everything I wanted conveyed memoir style."
After the attendace of both funerals in 2016, Rawger's car broke down on his return to Dallas, and had to limp back to his hometown of El Paso. Low on funds to repair his vehicle he had to stay with family. During this time he linked up with El Paso film company "Desert People Pictures." Reading heavily into Cherokee manuscripts at the time the inception of this song was born. Originally the first of a 3 part short movie Feather Dance takes you on a naturalistic journey through the eyes of a drifter trying to escape his lost and lonely feeling of isolation that the gypsy life brings.
Battling a life-time of substance abuse and gambling habits, this song highlights the artist's struggle within to contain his alcoholic crutch and vices alike. A true archetypal rivalry between sobriety and the bottle. "The title fight when your rival dies". The amount of bars Rawger North squeezes into this drummer's delight in it of itself is impressive. Produced in "triplets" by percussionist Tycer Whaley at The Rechordium. Music Video (shot in El Paso) was directed by Luis Ruiz of then Double Scope Films. The short movie's story line and videography is sure to capture any motion arts enthusiast.
At a time whilst living in North Carolina Rawger North's only mode of transportation was his motorcycle. He rode his motorcycle up North Carolina's Blue Ridge Parkway in and out of the dark tunnels winding up the Smokie Mountains and knew he had to capture this majestic beauty in moving film. He hiked through the woods with a local Asheville friend who took him to "Skinny Dip Waterfalls". Enchanted by the sheer magic of the falls, Rawger knew this would be the backdrop for the "hauntingly beautiful" song and music video, Tunnel Vision".
A song about seeing your dreams through, being locked in and never faultering and feeling some sort of regret for not taking family into closer considertion because of the desire to succede was blinding. A sort of an apology to himself for letting the ones closest to him down. Tycer Whaley produced this beat while lying down one evening staring at the clouds slowly drifting along the sky. Shot by Andrew Andersen Films. This motion picture will take you on a holistic ride through the diary of Rawger's life on two wheels.
