Video: Krooked Treez – “Militant Soldiers”

Krooked Treez is back with a hip-hop reggae-esque jammer with their new single “Militant Soliders” featuring Sen Dog of Cypress Hill, Karim Israel of Arise Roots and Sid Wilson of Slipknot. Along with the single is the drop of a new music video shot in various locations throughout Los Angeles, CA. and directed by Estevan Oriol. The song was produced by Brian Vasquez of BNV Studios as Krooked Treez vocalist O. Brown explains the fruition of the track: “The whole process happened naturally. We all came together when everything was going down with Trump and the craziness of hearing about a wall being built. We wanted to come together and be a voice for the public and unite for racial injustice. Brian at BNV had the dope beat with Karim in place and we just took it to a new level with adding my homies!”

Orange County rock-reggae outfit the Common Kings just got off a summer headline tour with MayDay from Strange Music and they have a new video for the song “Everybody” off their new album Lost In Paradise. The video was shot in New York on the Hudson River as directed by Hagoth Aiono during the groups tour with Meghan Trainor. Here’s what Ivan “Uncle Lui” Kirimaua told The Pier with regards to the video:
“This was probably one of the best experiences we’ve ever had filming a video as it captures who the Common Kings are. Hagoth can take any normal experience and make it appear epic and amazing.
