SEATTLE (PRWEB) March 07, 2019
Black Stax releases “STAXIN CONTINUES… Live Renditions” EP the latest in their “ILL-US-TRAIT” series, along with video for lead single “Vintage.”
Vintage has been impacting college and internet radio charts since released earlier this month. It reached the number one spot on the national Rap Attack Chart and has shown strong performance on college radio stations, spending weeks as the number one song on DJ Chill Will’s station (WCBN) at the University of Michigan and sitting above more commercial artist such as Eminem, Drake and 2 Chainz on the North American College and Community Radio Chart (NACC).
The music video for “Vintage,” released this week, is directed and edited by Grxtty, and gives a nod to the duo’s appreciation for the legacy of Black culture and celebrates Black Stax’s Seattle roots. The EP features live renditions recorded earlier this year in Seattle, Atlanta, Chicago and Charlotte.
