Moe Pope & The Arcitype are STL GLD, and they're back with their first visual off their upcoming full length album, "Torch Song" available Feb 17, 2017 on AR Classic Records.
Eccentric and passionate New York native MC Whiteowl portrays the hunger of a rising artist in his literally out-there new video for “One Chance,” produced by the ubiquitous Statik Selektah.
Given the setting and what Owl goes through to find relief and sustenance, the clip’s protagonist resembles a hybrid of Tom Hanks’ ‘Castaway’ character and a down-on-his-luck John Rambo. As in, dude’s clearly been hitting the weights, but has also lost his mind a bit during his time alone in the woods, where he fashions himself a spear to, yes, catch his dinner.
It’s all a visual metaphor for how Owl felt when he was recording “One Chance,” which he sums up in its hook when spitting: “If you had, one chance to kill a Statik track/ Would you spit heat on the beat or would you just fall flat?” He obviously put his all into everything associated with the track, from its borderline-scatterbrain bars to the video’s overall narrative (which, by the way, has a happy ending).
Check out the visuals, which are directed by Olise Forel for Moving Silence (Sadat X, Grand Daddy I.U.), and be sure to support the single, which is now available for purchase and download through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms via Straight Dope Records.
