Video: Sleep – Orion’s Belt

Cincinnati MC and Fraternity member Sleep’s new video for “Orion’s Belt” captures raw, gritty visuals accompanied by a musical effort of the same nature. On a track produced by ClockworkDJ and filmed by Haze Effects and Rose Tower Films, Sleep graciously relieves listeners of having to go through the pain of hearing another random rapper “kill it”.

2Mancypher comes through with a new video titled Broken on their Vevo sponsored youtube page. The track and video touch on some emotional, even distrubing subjects. Directed by Dan Hazeboy and produced by Dope Antelope. Follow Sleep on Twitter at @Sleep2mancypher

Video: Sleep – Unmatched (dir. by Miles Joyner)

As usual, The Fraternity does not disappoint.  The group’s co-founder, Sleep, does anything but what his moniker may suggest.  Also one half of Cincinnati hip hop duo 2 Man Cypher along with Cocaine Chris, Sleep once again successfully steps out on his own.  For a minute during the visuals shot by Miles Joyner I was nostalgically reminded of Mobb Deep’s Havoc and Prodigy spitting rhymes on dimly lit street corners.  Dark visuals mixed with a Jake Case produced boom bap throwback is just enough fuel for the fire to prove that Sleep is “Unmatched”.

Video: 2 Man Cypher – Project 48


Directed by Dan Hazeboy, the darkly scattered visual for “Project 48” from Cincinnati duo 2 Man Cypher’s recently released Queen City Bastards album provides hope for the future of the hip hop state.  Produced in it’s entirety by Dope Antelope, Queen City Bastards is a stand out release from the pair of Fraternity representatives Cocaine Chris and Sleep.
