Red Bull Sound Select's 30 Days In LA has ended, but it seems like the energy drink company always has programs for music endeavors popping off. Today they're kicking off the third annual 20 Before 17 program, which celebrates "20 exclusive videos, tracks, lectures and more from Red Bull’s year in music." We're happy to help with the kick off, offering the first listen of a new record/music video for Red Bull Records group Warm Brew, which features the dance crew Flying Steps.
There's a lot more happening within the #20Before17 program, so keep your eyes peeled. As for Warm Brew's new record, they said the following about the collaborative effort via e-mail:
"Growing up, a veteran expression amongst the OG's was "it's all gravy" -an acceptance of less than ideal situations. Aligning to Westside Warm Brew staples, the video pays homage to the traditions of hip hop with b-boy culture and dancing techniques through the collaboration with Flying Steps. It was fun to use our imagination and creativity with the Flying Steps to create an original piece of work. Stepping outside of the box is something we've never been ashamed of. We wanted to showcase the values of what builds the essence of hip hop for us with others that can appreciate the same while understanding that if you talkin down on some young hustlers—it's all gravy—we can settle it and prove otherwise."
I remember everything, homies hatin', talkin' down
Women disrespecting me, giving me the run around
Money turn your luck around, women throw that rump around
That make me turn my head around
I try to wrap my head around
