AVG: Streets of Detroit by The Nic(k)s

This feature is just productivity exercise. I want to remind myself that it is not hard to showcase quality content. Case in point, I must share this audio/visual gem featuring producer/eMCee Nick Speed, made by Nic Notion.

Basically, The Nic(k)s explore the deep blue collar connection between the industrial plants and the industrious beats that permeate Detroit hip hop music. Notion juxtaposes scenes of assembly line activity and Speedo working on a new beat. It is hard to tell which is the grimy backdrop – the music or the film footage. It is this kind of work that inspires me and keeps me going. In a world that forces us to reconsider our value every day, we must share in each other’s creativity to keep up surging forth.
