Came across this earlier while aimlessly scrolling through Facebook, the animated black and white visuals stood out immediately. The video reminds me of Flying Lotus’ “Zodiac Shit” due to the dope morphing aspect of both set of visuals -except in black and white and not as trippy. While I’m not too familiar with Paten Locke or Has-Lo the first thing that came to mind when i heard Paten Locke‘s voice was a mixture of both Mike Shinoda and Mos Def voices. Although his flow or lyricism is not too similar to either MCs, their voices remind me of each other. Dope song, even cooler music video. check out the Has-Lo “Inherit The Stars” (Paten Locke Remix) music video below, and see what DC producer Oddisee had to say about the rapper.
“Has-Lo’s music has such a familiar sound to it. It reels you in with his use of drum breaks & sample based production. Once his vocals come in, you quickly learn that this producer/mc is putting a beautiful new & dark twist to what we all know and love.” -Oddisee
