Catch Spanks and myself once again over at Southpaw in Brooklyn representing the most studious crew in rap music.

Back at you once again with another video off my mixtape Body Of Work
Like "Strut" off of Now Or Never, "Food For Thought" is one of those instances where I felt like I needed to wax poetic on something I was feeling hella much. In this case it was Larry Heard/Mr. Fingers' contemplative classic "Can You Feel It".
Shot, once again, by Rob Critical of HA Critical, and assisted in the camerawork department by Charles Yi of The Mighty Fifty, this video was shot in Downtown LA during the summer at "magic hour" - that perfectly complementary time of the day when the sun decides to match the tone of this video we shot right here. It makes things a little more special for you, the viewer, to experience, as well as me, the artist, to provide.
Here we go again! 1-O.A.K. drops Me & You, the second release in our new HNRL single series.
From the desk of the HNRL:
He’s been putting in overtime with his work for others but we’re geeked to finally share his own debut single, “Me & You”. Co-written alongside fellow Honor Roller Trackademicks and produced by 1-O.A.K., the song’s percussive backbone combines smooth synths over a stutter-step breakbeat to create a lush soundscape matching the song’s theme of love caught in uncertainty. “Me & You” has 1-O.A.K. assessing an atmosphere in which loose lips sink ships: his girlfriend’s confidantes have labeled him a player. With confidence and conviction, he urges his love to take a leap of faith – “If love is for the birds then meet me in the clouds.”
